So I was going to install a new SCCM 2012 Primary Site at a customer.
I was using Windows Server 2012, SQL 2012 SP1 and SCCM 2012 SP1.
the SCCM 2007 client was installed on my newly created Win2012 server due to Client Push which was enabled in the 2007 Site. I uninstalled the client and looked for the success code 0 before I rebooted the server and started the SCCM 2012 Installation. All Good so far, but when i checked the Site Status I saw that the Management Point Icon was red.
Diving into the logs I found several errors
Starting in the MPSetup.log: ” mp.msi exited with error code: 1603 ” “Fatal MSI Error – mp.msi could not be installed”
Next in line was the mpMSI.log
And last I checked the bgbisapiMSI.log which stated a Internal Error 2500. 80070057
A couple of nasty words later I found a post on technet (cant find it right now) that recommended deleting CCM from WMI. because there where traces from the 2007 client.
First off I tried the good old ccmclean.exe which couldn’t save me this time.
I ended up using PowerShell, but you can also use VBS or even manually delete it.
Get-WMIObject -namespace “root” -query “SELECT * FROM __Namespace where name = ‘ccm’” | remove-wmiobject
I do hope this may help others save some time.
