Installing Server Management tools

Share this:

In this tutorial, we are going over the process to install the required software in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 to support SMT (Server Management Tools) feature from Microsoft Azure.

Solution


When adding a SMT Connector on a old server (Windows Server 2012 R2 and older versions) some requirements must be in place for the administrator to manage such servers using Microsoft Azure SMT (Server Management Tools).

A new page informing about the required software, click on Install to start the installation process. This process will install Windows Management Framework 5 and/or WMI providers.

The process will start installing the components automatically on the target server.

After the installation of the requirements, the server will be ready to be managed through SMT tools.
