Earlier today I was attempting to install the Active Directory Management Gateway service on a new Server 2003 domain controller and I was rewarded with an error stating:
Setup cannot continue because one or more prerequisites required to install KB968934 failed.
Oh, what fun. Fortunately for me, some kind folks over at Microsoft’s Technet forums had the answer. There are two hotfixes that need to be installed on a Server 2003 SP2 machine before the AD Management Gateway Service can be installed:
- MS KB969166—Hotfix rollup package for ADWS for NET 3.5 SP1
- MS KB969429—Hotfix for Netlogon subsystem
I found that downloading these can be a pain. KB969166 requires a Microsoft download manager and KB969429 will only show a 64-bit download if you’re on a 64-bit machine. You must download it from a 32-bit machine if you’re applying it to a 32-bit server. Also, be prepared to restart your server for KB969429.
