Tech Tip: How to Install Current Capacity Reporter (CCR) on Windows Server 2012 R2

    CCR is now supported on Windows Server 2012 R2.

     

    No changes to the CCR code were necessary, but the configuration of IIS (and other required Windows components) has changed.  One of our illustrious Services engineers put together a document with screens shots that describes the process.  Thanks to Gream Park for the content.

     

    This effectively replaces the section "Appendix B: How to install the required IIS modules" in the CCR Installation Guide for Windows Server 2012 R2.

    I also found that I needed to change the npc website to the Classic .NET AppPool (v2.0).  Not sure if I missed this in the documentation?

    We have seen several Win2012 installations go smoothly following the above advice.  We have also seen some that have taken a significant amount of debugging to get to working - some of the OOTB IIS8 settings and dependencies, .NET 4.5 / 4.6 vs. .NET 3.5 to name but one, can cause http: 404 errors and other things that can be a challenge to resolve.

     

    Running Classic ASP web-apps on the latest IIS8 is known to be a challenge in some instances.  Thanks to the tenacity of one of our customers, a couple of useful web links have emerged that may be helpful in addition to the above Tech Tip:

    Comparing C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config on a known working installation against that in one which is failing can also be illuminating in tracking down the specific IIS config setting(s) that are the root cause of the issue.
