I want to try the RC of SCVMM 2012, but i'm not able to install the software.
My Host is a 2008R2 Standard Hyper-V VM, 4 GB RAM, 4 Cores, 40 GB HDD. Windows SQL 2008 SP3 Eval is also installed on this VM.
I start the Setup of SCVMM2012, eula, enter that i want to create a new database, local Systemaccount, leave Port default settings, leave library default settings, and click install.
after a few seconds i get the error: "C:\VMM2012\amd64\setup\msi\server\vmmserver.msi" error 1603 occured. For more details refer to C:\Programdata\vmmlogs\vmmserver.log"
When i open vmmserver.log and search for 1603, i see this:
"MSI (s) (54:C8) [11:55:21:751]: Invoking remote custom action. DLL: C:\Windows\Installer\MSICBA9.tmp, Entrypoint: CreateSSLCertificate
MSI (s) (54!CC) [11:55:21:761]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding COMPUTERNAME property. Its value is 'SCVMM2012.testdom.int'.
Action start 11:55:21: CreateSSLCertificate.
CustomAction CreateSSLCertificate returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
MSI (s) (54:FC) [11:55:26:871]: Machine policy value 'DisableRollback' is 0
MSI (s) (54:FC) [11:55:26:871]: Note: 1: 1402 2: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Rollback\Scripts 3: 2
Action ended 11:55:26: CreateSSLCertificate. Return value 3."
I also tried to set up a completly new VM with Server 2008R2 and SQL2008 SP3, with the same error.

I have the same problem, already posted on the other thread.
But the real problem is that I have lost the count of how many time I have built and rebuilt my home lab with scvmm 2012 rc and never had this problem.
Starting from today I have this problem and really, I can't find a solution.
I'm "happy" that I'm not the only one to have this problem.
Last thing that I could try is rebuild my entire home lab from scratch in a private network with a fresh installation of Active Directory and SQL Database and see what happen.
i think i have a solution.....
the error occured today, feb 29th, its a leapyear.
i think that the installer tried to create a certificate which has, for example, 5 years lifetime - but in 5 years there is no 29th feb....i don't know if this is the correct answer, but in my mind this could be the issue. i'll test tomorrow :-)
If in a lab environment an alternative is to reset the date to be prior to the 29th, I have just tested this and have managed to install. Changing the date and time back needs to occur after the 29th has past. Clearly this is not a good option for non development/testing environments.

Don't believe it's based on local time(zone), but UTC. So by the time you read this it will probably be working for you.
