SQL Server 2016 SP1 on Windows 2012 server
Documentation from Hardware and Software Requirements states that a prerequisite is .NET 4.6.1 Framework for the Database Engine, Master Data Services and Replication. It will automatically be installed if not already.
It was note installed before, I can't post an image of that because I'm limited to one right now.
This is after installation
As you can see, it's not there! However, so far the products seem to be working correctly.
Should I install the .NET 4.6.1 now after-the fact, or let it be?
Any insights are welcome and appreciated!
Thank you in advance,
