Offline Installation SharePoint 2013


In many situation you would like to do a offline installation of SharePoint 2013 or you are required to do a offline installation because you do not have a network connection on the server.

The prerequisites installer of SharePoint 2013 downloads the requirements directly of the internet. So we will have to make sure this will not be done.

But first off all we will have to install several Windows Server features. You can install these features by using the following PowerShell command:

Import-Module ServerManager
Add-WindowsFeature Net-Framework-Features,Web-Server,Web-WebServer,Web-Common-Http,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-App-Dev,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Health,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Security,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Performance,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Dyn-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Tools,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Mgmt-Compat,Web-Metabase,Application-Server,AS-Web-Support,AS-TCP-Port-Sharing,AS-WAS-Support, AS-HTTP-Activation,AS-TCP-Activation,AS-Named-Pipes,AS-Net-Framework,WAS,WAS-Process-Model,WAS-NET-Environment,WAS-Config-APIs,Web-Lgcy-Scripting,Web-AppInit,Windows-Identity-Foundation,Server-Media-Foundation,Xps-Viewer 

Note:In this PowerShell command I also included: “Web-AppInit” . This is the Application Initialization feature (This is not a prerequisites) but can come very handy for warming up your web applications (IIS 8.0 Application Initialization reduces response time for SharePoint 2013).

When this is done we can make use of the prerequisites installer that is included on the SharePoint 2013 installation drive. By supplying the executable with certain arguments it will look for the installation files on the locale drive.
