In order for Archer websites to function properly, it is important to ensure that all required roles and features are installed on the Web server(s). If certain roles and/or features are not enabled, you may see some unusual behavior in the system such as:
Inability to log in to Archer
Unexpected Errors when going to Administration Pages
Attached is a discovery script that can be run in Windows PowerShell that will evaluate all required roles and features and outline the features that are enabled and the features that may need to be enabled.
This check can be performed on all Web Servers.
To run this script:
Search for Windows Powershell (on taskbar or start menu)
Right-click Windows Powershell and Run as Administrator.
Copy and Paste the script in the attached 'ArcherPrerequisiteRoleFeatureCheck' file Image description
The file will be saved to the specified file path at the end of the script (this can be changed if necessary).
Go to the file path (C:/ArcherRolesandFeatures.txt in this case) and open the results in Notepad.exe and evaluate the settings.
Results: Image description
If there are any Role/Features that need to be enabled, you can use the Add Roles and Features Wizard to enable them:
Run Server Manager (on taskbar and start menu).
Scroll down to the "Roles and Features" section.
Go to Server Roles or Features, depending on what setting needs to be enabled.
Once the settings are enabled, click install.
For internal users, running this script on your local computer will not work as there appears to be some hardening that limits access to the Server manager and the execution of the Get-WindowsFeature command.
