Sitecore 9 update 1 installation with SQL Server on a different server

Sitecore 9 update 1 was just released. So it’s quite fresh from the oven.

I’ve just tried the installation on a web machine that uses SQL Server installed on a different server and made some discoveries related with prerequisites  needed for the installation.

So beside the standard prerequisites mentioned in the installation documentation (must log into https://dev.sitecore.net/ before downloading) there are couple requirements that have to be installed on your webserver:

    1. Microsoft SQL Server TransactSQLScriptDom – install both SqlDom.msi for x64 and x86 – install this before DacFx
    2. Microsoft Shared Management Objects for SQL Server 2016  – install both SharedManagementObjects.msi for x64 and x86
    3. Microsoft® SQL Server® 2016 Feature Pack
      1. Microsoft ODBC Drivers for Microsoft SQL Server – install both msodbcsql.msi for x64 and x86
      2. Microsoft Command Line Utilities 13 for SQL Server – install both MsSqlCmdLnUtils.msi for x64 and x86
    4. SQL Server PowerShell Module – by opening PowerShell as administrator and  run this command:
      Install-Module -Name SqlServer -AllowClobber
    5. Extra (so I find it later, even that is in the official documentation): Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable – was introduced in this Sitecore 9 update 1 as its needed by ChilkatDotNet46.dll. Download from here.

I guess that’s all.

Happy installing and let me know if you need any assistance.
