Installing Octopus on Windows 2012

I there I wanted to install Octopus on Windows 2012 and had some problems. First of all, it would be nice if these was some kind of installment guide to install on Windows 2012 server core but that is something for the future.

  1. Dism statement is incorrect
  2. IIS Windows Security missing

When installing, where adding the required features you need to add the following to the dism commandline

  `/Source:d:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess`

I wanted to configure Octopus to use Windows Authentication. I selected this and Octoput says the website configuration was a success. However I got a weird IIS error. After investigating the problem is seemed the WIndows Authentication features was missing in the IIS security features. Adding this made is all work.

why did nobody reply to this, i guess I wont use win2012?

Hi Brennon,

Octopus works on Windows Server 2012 (we use it ourselves) but you’ll need a full GUI install and not server core (we’re not testing on that just yet).
