Trying to install additional MS - Stuck on "Registering management server". RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I'm trying to install MS on a 2012R2 Server, This server will be an additional MS in my Management Group. The installation gets stuck on "Registering Management Server", and doesn't show up in the console. I've checked that all prerequisites are met, and the SQL instance name is correct. Nothing particular to see in event logs after I cancel the installation (which also takes forever, and has to be forcefully ended).

    What could be wrong?

    Best regards

  • The issue was that an Operations Manager agent-installation which had failed to uninstall completely blocked the installation of the MS. It was resolved by running this tool to remove the MSI-info for the agent from registry:
