I'm looking for a workaround to install IMC on a Win2016 server.

I've read the release notes and know that it's not listed as a support OS.  We're in a migration phase and no one wants to bring 2012 R2 back into our infrastructure.  Is it possible to get IMC installed on a Win2016 server or am I just out of luck?

Thanks!

You can install it on your one risk. Please read the info in the windows\tools\MSKBsC. You find itif you unzipped imc..

Microsoft update could stop the installation of imc and connection to the DB.  "....... confirmed that the previously mentioned updates added the TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA and TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA cipher suites but the cipher suites have problems that can cause database connection failure.

The two new cipher suites were added for compatibility with early applications that use RC4 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC4), which is not used by industry at present. The two cipher suites use 512-bit encryption. Microsoft considers that 512-bit encryption is not secure enough, and another Windows update (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3061518) forces the server to use 1024-bit encryption, resulting in decryption failure on IMC."

If you delete this two SSL cipher than the installation works also on Windows 2016. Sometime, if you check the SSL cipher, the programm MSKBsC tell you "...passed", but please check it directly per gpedit.msc, and if they are in, delete.

I found the release notes for IMC 7.3 E0605, which states that Windows 2016 is a supported operating system. Also, in the E0605 release the embeeded database has been replaced with SQL 2016 express. All good, except that I cannot yet find anywhere to download it. Hopefully it comes out soon.
