SCCM Client Install Error 0x80072f8f RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I have just done a fresh install of SCCM 2012 R2 Build 1151. I have followed a great guide by Gabriel Beaver. Sorry I can't post the link, the technet site wont allow me. I got to the very end of the guide and went to install the Client using the SCCM admin console and I can see that the install starts on the client by looking in Task Manager but it does not finish successfully. Looking though the log I can see this error comes up: 0x80072f8f. I have done some looking around and I suspect that this is because of a certificate issue, but I don't know if it is for the client or the server?

    Has anyone else come across this error before when install SCCM Client?

    Thank you.

    Have you installed ConfigMgr 2012 R2 or ConfigMgr CB / 1511? I guess from your description CB / 1511, just want to make sure ;)

    Can you post the complete ccmsetup.log?

  • Simon,

    Sorry typo on my part it was not 1151 but rather 1511, and as fair as I know it is ConfigMGr 2012 R2. I am not sure what ConfigMgr CB is?

    Thanks for your reply.

    ConfigMgr Current Branch is the next / new Version of Configuration Manager, currently in Version 1511: http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2015/12/08/system-center-configuration-manager-ga.aspx

    Thank you for your post. I have followed the steps in the post that you kindly provided but I am afraid that I got the same result.

  • Simon,

    I am sorry, yes you are right it is ConfigMgr CB, based on that link. Thanks for setting me straight.

    Any thoughts on what might be causing this error?

  • As I said, without the Logfiles (ccmsetup.log), we can only guess.

  • Definitely need to see CCMsetup.log.

    Out of curiosity , are the boundaries set up correctly ? Are we using https environment ?

  • Simon,

    This is a link to my OneDrive. You can download the log file there. Hope you have a chance to have a look. Thanks.



    The boundaries are setup correctly. Yer I am using a HTTPS environment.


    Sorry for posting this in the wrong area. I did not know at the time.

    Thanks everyone.

  • Failed to find DP locations from MP
    Have already tried all MPs. Couldn't find DP locations.

    Are you sure that your Boundaries are configured correctly?

  • Simon,

    Well I guess I can't be sure that it is configured correctly. As I said I am new to Config Mgr. I have configured the boundaries by following this guide: http://gabrielbeaver.me/2012/08/system-center-configuration-manager-and-endpoint-protection-manager-2012/

    Is there anything you can suggest that I could do to confirm that the Boundaries are configured correctly?

    Oswin, that strange that you can't access the log. Sorry but no I can't post the log fire here because I am new to the site and apparently Microsoft has not had a chance to verify my account yet.

  • Simon,

    I have take screen shots of my Boundaries config and uploaded it to the same OneDrive site. I am not sure if that will help or not?

  • Dear Sir,

        0x80072f8f------ "A security error occurred"

        I think you may need to check your PKI certificate configuration. Here is a guide you coule refer to:


    Best regards,

  • Hi All,

    As orginally suspected it was an issue with the PKI certificates but not an issue with the configuration of them. Human error. I made a typo and when recreating the certificate for the web server I some how managed to make the same typo in the FQDN. With the right FQDN now in a new certificate everything is now working.

    Thank you all.
