SharePoint configuration Wizard error - "Failed to add the service connection point for this farm" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everybody,

    I am facing an issue with SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard. I have installed SP1 and then June 2011 CU but after installation when I tried to run the "SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard", it is failing with an error at the 9th step.

    Looking at the log file I could see below details related to the error.

    Successfully created security token service application

    I have searched to find a resolution for this issues but all of them require me to go to AD admin. In my case making any change in the AD is not possible mainly because it is a production AD and the administrator are not tracking (and do not want to track)  SharePoint installations as of now.

    Is there any way I can skip creating service connection point for this farm?


    Thank you

    Arun

  • Hi,

    Can you tell me what exactly need to add in <passphrase>

    psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace v2v -passphrase <passphrase> -wait

    I used <passphrase> which i supply at the time of installation. But not working.

  • <passphrase>  would be your Farm Passphrase.  You established that during the installation.
