    Configure Service Connection Point Tool has stopped working

    Hi All,

    I'm currently up against a very annoying problem when trying to install Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008R2 and Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2008R2, I suspect this is the same for all System Center versions.

    This error message is displayed very close to the end of the installation, at the configuring service part on either of the products. The software also completes the installation with 'all green ticks' having clicked 'close the program' on the error. Error message is:

    Configure Service Connection Point Tool has stopped working

    Problem signature:

    The software / hardware meets all pre-requisites and I'm installing it on a clean copy of Microsoft Windows Server Enterprise 2008R2 SP1. I have tried Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2008R2 SP1 too. I have also tried two different physical servers and one virtual server. All to no avail!

    Event Log only shows:

    I have 'googled' away, been led down many paths, but nothing which stops this error from occurring during the installation.

    My understanding is this is something to do with when the installer is trying to edit Active Directory to include this service connection point. I've used ADSIEdit.msc to check that it isn't already there, or in fact if it had managed to add the information, I can confirm it hasn't, no service connection point is created for this server. Other service connection points do exist for other servers.

    I can confirm I'm installing the softwares using a Domain Administration account and I have tried both Local System and creating a dedicated AD service account for SCVMM to run under...

    Hopefully you may have the answers...

    Kind Regards,

    Paul

    Last night we went out on a limb and tried to install MS System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Beta. This also failed with the Service Connection Point error but did provide a little more information. Screenshot below.

    Obviously we had tried running the 'exe' with the -install parameter previously, and did try again to no avail.

    Any thoughts?

    Kind Regards,

    Paul

    Are you running the install as a domain admin?

    The software doesn't actually allow you to run the installer without being logged in as a Domain Administrator.

    Thanks for the post SYNACK.

    I have read those articles previously - and I will again. It's annoying that I can't get it to complete it normally though. Must be something not quite right with AD I assume.

    I think you're probably right though - doing it manually is probably the answer. I also found this guide which appears a little easier to follow by amending it for this particular software...

    Solved (at least for me)

    I was installing the new System Center 2012 components, starting with DPM and VMM. On each one, I had a failure of ConfigureSCP.

    One thing popped into my head as I was driving to work... our old Conficker blocking group policy.

    It turns out that the ConfigureSCP step during the install, and the "ConfigureSCPtool.exe -install" command line, were both being blocked by the official steps that Microsoft recommended several years ago for protecting against Conficker.

    It's not enough to remove the policy. You need to actually reverse the steps that were taken. Fortunately, we created an "unblock Conficker" policy that restores everything back the way it was.

    I don't know which part is necessary to reverse. We just rolled-back all of the changes.
