Sharepoint 2013 - Cannot configure the Management Pack


  • Hi!

    I can't seem to make the task for configuring this MP work. I see in the logs on my Sharepoint-server that the account I use as Run as account logs on successfully, but despite this the task fails. Am I supposed to use the Run as accounts credentials for my Sharepoint environment when I run the task? I think the config of the Run As account on this MP is a bit difficult to configure. Especially the bit where you have to change the name, or use the name for the Run as account as specified in the config file. Anybody knows the reason for this?

    Also i have a Sharepoint-server in a workgroup in DMZ. How can I specify this in the config file? Do I need a separate run-as account for this server, as my Run as accoount is a domain user. I only get warnings that the credentials don't work, and that makes sense on the Workgroup server.

    Any help appreciated:)

    Best regards
    Rune Haugen

    I have followed this article carefully, and I'm still not able to run the configuring job. Any tips?

  • Hi Rune,

    Could you show the output of failed task please.  Ideally you should run the job using a credential that's a member of the Operations Manager Administrators group.  What version of SCOM are you using? If it's 2012 and you have multiple management servers, you need to ensure the config file is located in the same directory on all Management servers as any server in the "All Management Servers Resource Pool" can execute the task.  

    Also, I have found you only really need to execute the task once, as the task configures overrides configuring the SyncTime parameter in the Microsoft.SharePoint.Foundation.Library.Override MP and associates the Run-As account to the servers in the Run-As Profile (which you can always do manually) .  For any additional servers or farms, you can just add them to the Distribution tab of the action account you created instead of modifying the config file and running the job again.

    Also please note SharePoint 2013 is not supported in a Workgroup. See
