Re-installing scom MSI installer error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I have a Win svr 2k3 SP2 server. SQL 2005 SP3. An previously there was SCOM 2007 SP1.

    I had issues with my SCOM with everything being greyed out, after trouble shooting and making multiple changes in the registry, services, dtabases etc. I completely destroyed my SCOM server. The server it is running on is a critical sql box, so it can not be re-loaded and the sql cannot be touched except the SCOM db's. In a moment of disillusion i uninstalled every SCOM componant except the database componant. All the SCOM componants resides on the same server. Now when I try to re-install the missing componants I get a MSI Installer error. I am installing from the original install media of SCOm 2007 without SP1. Here is the error:

  • So you want to start new, but with the old existing database, right?
    Does the SCOM DB already know that the RMS is gone already? Because perhaps you will also need to start fresh with a new SCOM db.
    Make sure you run the management server install with an account with sufficient rights on windows and the sql/database and so on.

    But after having completely destroyed everything you could do two things.. run a restore or start completely fresh/clean. I would go for the second option, especially if you have some kind of backup of the custom and overrides management packs you had. If you would go for that I would suggest you use a different management group name to avoid confusion.
