Background

When you try to install a (or any) hotfix on a FIM or MIM 2016 server or component, you might run into a situation where the installation seems to run fine until the very last second and then the wizard starts a rollback.

Certainly, when you start the setup, msi or msp (patch) directly without any logging parameters, you will hardly get any information on the root cause.

Therefore it's wise to start the setup or hotfix installation with verbose logging.

Generating log

Use this article to install the hotfix with verbose logging: FIM Troubleshooting: Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.

As explained by Tim:

  1. Open an Administrative Command-Prompt by right-clicking  Command-Prompt and selecting Run As Administrator
  2. Navigate to where you downloaded and extracted the hotfix
  3. Execute the following:

    msiexec.exe /p <name of msp file> /l*v mylog.txt

  4. Open and review the log  

Log Error Message Indicators

The log might have a very high volume of information.

Below you find some useful phrases of information that should give you some indicators or easy search components to look for.

Solutions

DCOM Error

Check that there are no DCOM errors (event id 10016)

Solutions:

Service account logon ID (NetBIOS or UPN format)

Source: forum post: Issue when trying to apply hotfix update KB3134725 for FIMService

As explained in the forum post: check the format of the service logon ID as configured in the FIM Service.

Root cause: "login info that runs the services wasn't in the correct format.  The default install had it like servicename@domain.net, but it needed to be domain\servicename."

SharePoint Admin rights

Make sure the installer account has the proper SharePoint Farm admin rights.

Use this article to install to fix the rights: FIM Troubleshooting: Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
