FEP install issues

So after the big announcement at MMS2011 about FEP becoming free as part of the core cal, I decided it was time to take a look.  For the most part, the install is straight forward.  Unfortunately, it did take me a couple of days to get it installed.  I was plagued by the SQL server pre-req always failing ( the error was Setup has detected that the SQL Server Analysis Services is not running ).  If you do a search, there are a ton of posts.  I tried most of them to no avail (verified the SPN’s, deleted then readded them anyways, etc).  Luckily for me, the SQL server for SCCM is local to the machine and thats all it is used by.  I upgraded from SQL 2008 SP1 to SQL 2008 R2 and wholla!  It passed the pre-req finally.  So if you are having that failure and can upgrade your SQL server, I recommend it.  It actually was completely painless to do so.  Time to start deploying!
