Install MOM Reporting Service Errors


  • I got the following in my ServerSetup.log:

    [1/12/2007 11:24:38 AM] Task(Install MOM Reporting Service)

    Process C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe failed with exit code 1618.

    This happened twice.

    How do I fix if needed?

  • Hi Ed,

    Thanks for posting. The error code means there is another installation is already in progress. Make sure you close other installations before proceeding.

  • The problem is I don't know what the program was that was awaiting completeion. Do I reinstall all options or just reporting service?

  • Hello!

    A few questions to help us figure out the state of your machine:

    1. Where you installing all the roles on a single box?  If so, and there were no other errors, you should be able to just install the Reporting role (and Reporting DB role)
    2. If you received other errors, it's probably safer to start a clean install from scratch

  • I did your number one figuring I could just start over if it didn't work. Everything went smoothly and I am adding test clients now.

    Thanks for your help,
