I got time to study SharePoint 2013 & first problem I encountered was IIS configuration error while running prerequisites.
When I launched SharePoint 2013 Installation Prerequisites wizard, below error was received:
On researching found below article & resolution:
- Insert the Windows Server 2012 installation image or DVD
- Open a command prompt window (run as Administrator) and run the following:
- Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\SxS /LimitAccess
Note: D:\ is a Label for CD Drive in my case where Windows Server 2012 ISO image.
Although, I haven't faced the Second issue that was mentioned in the article, as parallelism is configured correctly(set to 1) on the SQL server.
After installing this fix all went well & wizard started moving :)
