I'm almost pulling my hair out. I'm trying to install Windows Server AppFabric 1.1 for our developer staff on a web server that's going to be housed externally - therefore it is workgroup only, no domain membership. OS is Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 German.
AppFabric 1.1 installed fine, Persistence configuration works - but Event Collection Monitoring cannot be set up using the wizard:
System.InvalidOperationException: Der Dienst AppFabricEventCollectionService kann nicht auf dem Computer . gestartet werden. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Der Abhängigkeitsdienst oder die Abhängigkeitsgruppe konnte nicht gestartet werden
--- Ende der internen Ausnahmestapelüberwachung ---
bei System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController.Start(String args)
bei Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Configuration.Utilities.ServiceControllerHelper.StartWindowsService(String serviceName)
bei Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Configuration.WorkerPage.OnBackgroundWorkerDoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
When trying to start AppFabricEventCollectionService manually, I get an 1068 dependency error pointing to the Netlogon service in Eventlog ("Der Dienst "AppFabric-Ereignisauflistungsdienst" ist vom Dienst "Anmeldedienst" abhängig, der aufgrund folgenden Fehlers nicht gestartet wurde: Der Vorgang wurde erfolgreich beendet.").
The Netlogon service, however, cannot start because it is a workgroup server :-) (or to be more exact, it starts but terminates itself immediately with the known 3095 error that it is a workgroup computer and Netlogon's not needed)
I looked at the installation guide, searched the net and forums but couldn't find anyone having this issue or a statement that workgroup environments are not supported. Is this an AppFabric bug or am I blindfolded and missing something?
Thanks in advance,

I have setup AppFabric 1.0 in workgroup mode fine. I had not heard that 1.1 requires a domain so I am pretty sure this is not required. My AppFabric Event Collection service is running as Local Service.
If you setup a local account for the service, does this work?
It sounds like there is a service dependency. You might try removing the service dependency (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/400/kb400112.html) on the NetLogon service.

Here is a good article on doing this for AppFabric 1.1: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh351385.aspx.
It looks like workgroup mode is still possible.

Thanks a lot, I've tried the guide from "Preparing" to "Installing" but I fail on step 14. - instead of a successful pop-up I still get the Win32Exception error. This time now, following the guide closely, with local Accounts instead of the default AS_* groups (which, in my view, shouldn't make any difference for a standalone server not interacting with other workgroup AppFabric computers).
So I guess my next best take would be to try out the older AppFabric 1.0 version.27 февраля 2012 г. 13:19
I can now confirm that AppFabric 1.0 configuration works flawlessly. It seems to be something specific to 1.1.
With 1.0 I can even use the default internal AS_* groups since it is a standalone server. No need to create and manage any separate user accounts. I also don't need the caching share since I don't use caching; and it's a secured system having SMB sharing disabled.
I could mark this as my own answer but that probably won't help others running into this problem with AppFabric 1.1 in the future.27 февраля 2012 г. 14:13
Interesting, it must be something incorrect with AppFabric 1.1. So it must be something with the security differences between 1.0 and 1.1. I can pass along your issue to the AppFabric team. It sounds like they will need to look into your issues.
