Hi Greg,

Sorry that you encountered this issue when configuring MDS, and thank you for your feedback on how to make this better in the product.

As you found, the IIS check in Master Data Services Configuration Manager is to verify that the version of IIS is supported, not that the individual features and role services are installed. You might find the following section of SQL Server Books Online helpful to understand the requirements and process (particularly the Web Application Requirements topic):

Also, check out the product team blog for updates and info about MDS:

Have you checked that the web app can access the area where mds web site is located?

you could try to give all users access to the "master data services" under ProgramFiles and rerun the configuration wizard

Hi Gorm,

It's working fine for me. I'm just noting it on the blog in case someone else has the problem. I was surprised that the dependency check worked with so many things not configured. It seems to just check that IIS7 is there but not whether things like ASP.NET are even enabled.

Beautiful, beautiful post, Greg.  Saved me a ton of time -- although the above comments sound like the MS documentation covers these requirements somewhere, I certainly didn't find an answer there, after quite a bit of looking.  Luckily, I ran across yours ... Working great now.
