issue installing system center

anyone get system center 1801 installed on server 2016?
it's failing on the prerequisite check

it says the isapi/cgi restrictions are disabled or missing
i've gone in IIS and all of the items are allowed

it also says 4.x registration check failed and is not registered with IIS
tried to use aspnet_regiis with -i and says the option is not supported in that operating system

for both items, it says it can be resolved in server 2012 by installed .net 4.5 but of course 4.6 is included
system requirements show all the roles are supported in 2016 (except nano) so not sure how to get around it

Two steps come to mind:

Slipstream the latest Windows Server CU into the GA Install.WIM file. Then use _that_ installer to install the base OS being used.

Make sure .NET 4.5.1 is installed post OS install. Given the requirement in the indicated Microsoft Doc I suggest not updating .NET at all until everything is installed.

I looked around for some PowerShell that would install all of the prerequisites like we have for Exchange but I don't see anything on a Microsoft property off the top. This is close but looks to be component specific: TechNet ConfigMgr Prerequisites.

NOTE: I work with Microsoft clustering most platforms but we use native tools and PowerShell as a rule. So, the above is best guess. :)

i guess i'm not sure how that would help

Make sure .NET 4.5.1 is installed post OS install.

OS includes 4.6

This is close but looks to be component specific

nice tool but yeah, seems limited in scope for certain applications
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
Having an up to date OS out of the box may include fixes in the OS to address some of the problems being experienced. SOP for us is to keep an up to date installer and use that.

The ASP.NET error screenshot shows 4.0 as the install attempt version and requests that IIS8/4.5 be installed via Windows Features.

On that host in an elevated PowerShell please post the results of the following into a CODE snippet:
Get-WindowsFeature *ASP*
Get-WindowsFeature | where {$_.installed -eq $true} | select DisplayName, Name, Installed

I've asked around and folks that I've asked have said that it should just work.

Perhaps the source image for the base OS is corrupt and should be downloaded again and the install process run off of that.
