I can not run Essentials in my environment (no domain administrator access.) I have formatted and reinstalled the ds6100 and am trying to install 2012r2 datacenter (site licensed) and can not install some of the wd software due to missing prerequisites.
Software that will not install (due to not being able to start service):
The WDSUSetup.exe installed but the webpage does not work (probably because of being unable to install WDStorageSetup.exe.)
The unable to start service error is generic and I believe it is due to .net or other things installed before these are installed (I am currently tearing apart the ALL_os.swm from the recovery partion for more clues.)
PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND THAT THIS IS UNSUPPORTED OR OTHER ISSUES OFF TOPIC
I am looking for help with the prerequisites I am missing to get the above software to install.
