During the last weeks we tried to install Symantec Client Management Suite but failed because of a missing prerequisite. The ADOMD.NET 9.0 is requiered to install the Client Management Suite. When clicking on the link, the requirement usually gets you to the Microsoft download page for a File called: SQLServer2005_ADOMD_x64.msi.
It seems that Microsoft decides to remove the download because it is outdated….
To Workaround this issue until Broadcom / Symantec provides a permanent fix you have two options:
- Enable the Next Button for the Install Readiness Check
Add the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\InstallReadinessCheck\ to the registry. Create a DWord called EnableNextbutton and set the value to 1.
Be aware that you may not be able to use IT Analytics if this Prerequisite is missing – everything other than ITA should work without any issue…
- Grab the File from an existing installation and install it.
With the release of 8.5 RU4 (tentative release mid. Juni 2020) the prerequisite (ADOMD.NET 9.0) is no longer required. This does not impact IT Analytics functionality.
