RES ONE Workspace Management Portal – Install prerequisites with PowerShell

With the introduction of RES ONE Workspace V10 the new management portals are available for RES ONE Workspace & RES ONE Automation. Rob Jager made an excellent blog on How to install the RES ONE Workspace Management portal step by step. I’ve installed the management portal a few times now but the prerequisites for IIS (Web-Server) are very specific. The funny thing is that the RES ONE Automation Management Portal installs the prerequisites automatically. If you don’t have tools like RES Automation Manager I’ll show you how can can quickly install the prerequisites with PowerShell on Windows 2012R2:

Add-WindowsFeature Web-Server,AS-NET-Framework,Web-HTTP-Redirect,Web-Asp-Net45,Web-Net-Ext45,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Client-Auth,Web-Cert-Auth,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Dyn-Compression


Note that .NET Framework 4.5.2 also is a prerequisite you can download it over here

If you don’t install the prerequisites when you’re trying to install the management portal you’ll get the following error message: “RES ONE Workspace Management Portal cannot be installed on systems with Internet Information Services lower than 7.5″











The prerequisites are also described in the RES ONE Workspace Administration Guide:


Hopefully RES changes the installer to automatically install the Window Features just as with the RES ONE Automation Management Portal.
