ConfigMgr 2012: Prerequisites for Site System Roles

I thought I would create a table with a summary of all the prerequisites required for each Site System Role in Config Manager 2012 (SCCM 2012).

I have collated this information from this Technet article >> Prerequisites for Site System Roles

Please note that the following table are all the prerequisites for Config Manage 2012 SP1 Site System Roles running on Windows Server 2012.

If you are after the prerequistes for Site System Roles running on other supported server operating systems, then you will be able to find what you are looking for here >> Prerequisites for Site System Roles
