Error Add-WindowsFeatures: The request to add or remove features on the specified server failed - Skype for business Prerequisites



Issue:


Hope this error most of them has been faced! but when we are in a tight schedule these kind of issues waste our time.





This error comes when you try prerequisites using PowerShell for Skype for Business deployment.


Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core, RSAT-ADDS, Windows-Identity-Foundation, Web-Static-Content, Web-Default-Doc, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Asp-Net, Web-Net-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Log-Libraries, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Filtering, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Dyn-Compression, NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Mgmt-Tools, Web-Scripting-Tools, Server-Media-Foundation -Restart
Solution:


Add to few commands to the PowerShell script "-Source D:\sources\sxs"


Following will be the disk/ISO path, basically we pointing to the script exact location where sxs is available and you don't have to copy these files from ISO to local server.


Disk path if someone not clear on above





After changes script will be like this

Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core, RSAT-ADDS, Windows-Identity-Foundation, Web-Static-Content, Web-Default-Doc, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Asp-Net, Web-Net-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Log-Libraries, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Filtering, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Dyn-Compression, NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45, Web-Asp-Net45, Web-Mgmt-Tools, Web-Scripting-Tools, Server-Media-Foundation -Restart -Source D:\Sources\sxs

This will solve the problem.

Enjoy!

This Web browser or operating system might not be compatible with Microsoft Silverlight

Crazy error getting from Silver Light while your trying to open newly installed skype for business 2015 on top of Windows Server 2016. Since i installed Silverlight already i was checking control panel the version what i installed its latest and which you can confirm by going to this URL -  https://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/locale/en-us/html/Microsoft%20Silverlight%20Release%20History.htm     According to above web and control panel it says same version but my setup cant access the configuration wizard getting following error. to fix nothing do just that add this URL ( https://<pool01FQDN>/cscp to trusted sites and refresh the page then this will go. Note: This error will mislead to check on other browser version and etc and you might check supported version for WinSvr 2016. No required those. Hope this will save your time.
