SharePoint 2016 Beta 2 - AppFabric Configuration Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Installation Sequence:

    AppFabric for Windows Server, Cumulative update for AppFabric, SharePoint Prerequisites, AppFabric configuration tool;

    attempting to install SharePoint 2016 Beta 2 get the following error: Windows Server AppFabric is not correctly configured. You Should uninstall Windows server AppFabric and reinstall it using the SharePoint Products Preparation tool.

    Question: Why is the SharePoint 2016 Beta installer not intuitive to handle this error/ prompt from the previous version: 2013. I get that the steps are out of order, but AppFabric is configured! Why does one have to uninstall in order for the SharePoint tool to do what: Resinstall? Makes no sense. Not in a 2016 product.

  • You should let the pre-req installer install AppFab. This was also true for 2013. Uninstall AppFab and re-run the pre-req installer.
