MSCE Fails to Install. Setup Log attached. Please Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I'm running Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Enterprise as a DC. I've got Microsoft System Center Service Manager 2010 installed. That install went through without fault.

    However upon trying to install MSCE i get an error just saying: "System Center Essentials failed."

    So i uninstalled what reminant were there from that first install, and then i removed WSUS, restarted then upon boot i stop all services pertaining to MSCSM and run the MSCE setup again, to the same outcome.

    Im also using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. I've removed the Virtualization Management Component as it isn't required, also I've set it so each managed computer will download their own updates individually. As i don't want them all stored centrally. The following is pastebin link is for my Setup Log: http://pastebin.com/UfhEHga7

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Brendan

  • Hey Nicholas,

     

    Yeah i also have SQL Server 2008 SP1 installed. But i dont think that's the problem. As previously i HAVE run MSCE on MSQLS2008R2 without an issue. :) I've found out that it isnt possible to run MSCSM and MSCE on the same server. Slightly annoying but i guess I'll have to deal for another week until the new server comes in and then i can just split them :) Thanks for your help though mate.

  • Tim,

    Hi, i used the Mangement Group from MSCSM - which is called Mangement Group :). However it didn't ask me for any Mangement Group type things during the setup for MSCE

  • Hi,

     

    Please try again after running the Essentials Server Cleanup Tool:

     

    System Center Essentials 2010 Resource Kit

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=32b2872a-a31d-4db1-abe8-018d91bf3942&displaylang=en#filelist

     

    If the issue persists, please run the installation package with “Run as Administrator” option; or use an account with higher privileges.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks.

    Hi,

     

    I also noticed that you are using SQL Server 2008 R2. SQL Server 2008 R2 is not supported in System Center Essentials 2010.
