MIM 2016 Service and Portal Setup Wizard ended prematurely RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am a bit "lost in space" as my MIM 2016 Service and Portal Setup Wizard ended prematurely! Checking the huge log file is for a Rookie quiet difficult to find the related error entry. I can see a  lot of error messages but some of them seem to menot relevant.

    Is there a section where to start to check Errors? For example I can see following log for an error message (I am using the Trace Log Tool)

    MSI (s) (60:FC) [14:44:36:174]: Executing op: CustomActionSchedule(Action=RollbackInstallFIMPortal,ActionType=1345,Source=BinaryData,Target=CAQuietExec,CustomActionData="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Portal\Microsoft.IdentityManagement.SolutionPackUtility.exe" action=uninstall mode=ServiceAndPortal log=event SHAREPOINTTIMEOUT=180 SolutionPack=MicrosoftIdentityManagement.wsp deleteweb=yes continueonerror=yes UILevel=5)

    Followed with this error message:

    CAQuietExec:  An error occurred while deploying FIM portal solution packs.
    CAQuietExec:  Error 0xfffffffa: Command line returned an error.
    CAQuietExec:  Error 0xfffffffa: CAQuietExec Failed
    CustomAction InstallFIMPortal returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
    05/18/2017 14:45:01.884 [8032]: Assembly Install: Failing with hr=80070005 at RemoveDirectoryAndChildren, line 393

    Any support is more then welcome.

    Thanks, MAME

  • If you run this with verbose on, you will get a better error. 

    Runt this from a command prompt with elevated rights,

    ""msiexec /I "Service and Portal.msi" /L*V log.log".  Go to the log.log file and see what the error actually is.

    It will be something like, System......, with is the error.

    Grab that and send it to us.

    99% of these errors are related to SharePoint foundation, but give it a try. 

    P.S: The account running this installation needs Local Admin Rights, SharePoint Farm Rights.

  • Hi Nosh,

    Thanks. I grabbed my log file with this command. The file is as I mentioned huge with I guess over a 1000 lines. As well the search word "system" did get me a ton of matches.

    I may have found the relevant error message:

    CAQuietExec:  Deploying microsoftidentitymanagement.wsp
    CAQuietExec:  An exception occurred while running Microsoft.IdentityManagement.SolutionPackUtility.exe: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Die Sprache wird vom Server nicht unterstützt. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Die Sprache wird vom Server nicht untersttzt.<nativehr>0x8102005e</nativehr><nativestack></nativestack>

    It has to do with a language that is not supported. My Server 2016 as well the SharePoint Foundation 2013 have a German version installed.

    Could that be the reason for an unsuccesfull installation of the MIM service and portal? And if so, would an English language pack installation solve the Problem? Or do I need a brand new SharePoint English installation?

    Regards, MAME

  • Hi,

    I think Nosh will be a rich man now if he really bet's some money ;-)

    This is in fact the issue, default language of MIM is always english first, after that you can install additional languages.

    So you need to install the english version of SP Foundation 2013 first and after that the german language pack, best would be to do this on a english server OS.

    Since I'm also from germany I did this a lot of times.

    So you just have the wrong installation base.

  • Hi,

    After your guys lead me to the right path I finally could install the MIM service and portal.
