  1. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm wrapping up the build of a brand new environment on a new domain we are migrating to and installing the last Secondary Site of 7. The destination servers of all the Secondary sites are all new 2012 R2 installations where I manually installed all pre-reqs, deployed the Secondary site from the console, and once complete added SUP & SMP. All 6 installed prior to this one went great with no issues. However, this last one is a pain even though I installed it the exact same way. It shows it completed successfully, but that's not the case. Below is a list of characteristics of the issue , what I've tried so far, and finally log info. I'm referring to the Secondary with issues as "TEX" and primary site as "ABC" Characteristics of Secondary Site Issues (As it appears 24 hours after installation / deployment) Installation completes successfully and under Sites its listed as "Active." All results within Installation Results pass except for 2 pre-req warnings BITS & IIS6 WMI compatibility component for IIS7 are not installed or cannot be verified Setup unable to establish a remote connection to WMI on secondary site Site Status & Component Status lists do not contain and entries from "TEX" yet lists ones from the 6 other Secondaries AD Forests / Publishing Status lists all 6 Secondaries + 1 Primary including TEX - however - the "Last Publishing Time" & "Last Publishing Status" are empty only for TEX There are no entries for "TEX" within System Management container In Monitoring / Database Replication, it states "Link is being configured" & "Initializing data between the parent site and child site". Replication Analyzer Inconsistent public keys - asks me to initiate public key transfer for target site TEX on source site ABC File replication route is required for site-to-site communication and file replication route is missing for site ABC on site TEX Replication initialization is aborted in site ABC for the replication groups: Secondary_Site_Replication_Configuration. RLA recommends reinitializing the above mentioned groups on site TEX. This may take several hours A boundary group with ~200 IP Ranges is associated with the Secondary Site Groups for local admins on TEX are the same as all other secondaries Distribution is not working / processing anything to TEX although should be What I've Tried to Resolve Issue Uninstall Secondary Site then reinstall Delete Secondary Site from console then manually uninstall all SCCM & SQL components, delete related files, registry entries, and even uninstalled roles / features; rebooted; then reinstalled all from scratch - same issue persists Manually added server's hostname to System Management container delegating full access to it Chosen to run all suggested actions in Replication Link Analyzer. After doing each, same issue appeared so had to skip rule to get it to continue Used the commands "preinst.exe /keyforchild" and "preinst.exe /keyforparent" then copied the resulting files into the hman.inbox where they belonged. They were processed and disappeared but nothing changed Considering uninstall / reinstall again but using a different site code. Only thing is that if that worked I feel I'd have some crap left over in database from old site code and don't want to jeopardize stability or performance Log FIles Below are individual log files as well as ZIPs of multiple ones taken from when I worked on it this afternoon. TEX_to_ABC Diagnostics.csv ReplicationAnalysis.htm rcmctrl_(Primary ABC).log rcmctrl_(Secondary_TEX).log AllReplicationLogs.zip SecondaryLogFiles.zip SecondaryInstallLogs.zip replmgr_(Primary ABC).log replmgr_(Secondary_TEX).log The site is 2012 R2 SP1 CU4 with all site servers running 2012 R2 OS. Any help or suggestions you could provide would be fantastic - Thank You!!
  2. Hey Guys / Niall - I've got a straightforward question for you all, please... We recently retied a Secondary server which was installed temporarily and did so by choosing to uninstall it from the console. Unfortunately, the uninstall seemed to only partially work. The console currently doesn't show any reference to it or its site code, but we are being flooded with the below status message every ~30 minutes: Site QDC has failed to detach. Refer to rcmctrl.log for further details. The thing is, when looking in rcmctrl.log, there is no reference to QDC. The server the secondary was installed to is still online and still has SQL installed, but nothing is installed related to SCCM - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\ doesn't even exist. I've tried running "preinst /delsite QDC", but it says "Cannot find site [QDC] in the site control data in the database. Checking in ServerData in the database. Failed to execute SQL query." I also obviously cannot attempt an uninstall directly from the server as the Program Files no longer exist. I'm pretty sure I've had to delete a site from the database long ago, but don't remember the exact details nor can find instruction online. We are running SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU4 on top of Windows Server 2012 R2 Any suggestions? Thanks!
  3. I've got an instance of ConfigMgr 1703 running to replace our old 2012R2 site, and we have six offices in other locations we need secondary sites for so we don't have a lot of MP and DP traffic across the WAN. I successfully provisioned the first secondary site this morning, but now I am trying to set the Client Push installation settings and when attempting to specify the service account, I get the attached error message. Once this pops up it crashes my ConfigMgr console, and it happens on my local workstation, my primary site server or the remote MP. Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this issue? I used the same account on the Primary site server for client push installation and it worked fine. Push works within the local site, but obviously fails at the remote site.
  4. Hi, sorry for my english, I do not know if this is the correct way to state my question. I have a SCCM primary site (Windows 2012 R2, SCCM 2012 R2, SQL 2012 Sp1 - Named Instance), I'm trying to install a secondary site (Windows 2012 R2, SCCM 2012 R2, SQL 2012 Sp1 - Named Instance), same domain but diferent subnets separated by a firewall, I opened the bidirectional ports between the servers: TCP 445 TCP 5033 (SQL Custom in both servers) TCP 4022 TCP and UDP 135 Dynamic TCP 49152-65535 TCP 80 TCP 443 I get errors: Validation of collation, sysadmin permissions(view errros.bmp), but the configuration is correct. Have any idea what may be causing the errors. Errores.bmp
  5. Good Afternoon All - I'm helping repair a fairly new 2012 SP1 CU1 environment which has ~50 secondary site servers - one per remote location. After setting them all up, it was time to deploy clients. I have set about 7 of them to enable site-wide client push to servers, workstations, and CM servers, but it's not working on any of them! I just looked at each of their Client Install properties and verified everything was selected, an account (which had local admin rights on each computer) was specified to use, and that in Installation properties the SMSSITECODE was that of the Primary server. I checked ccm.log on some of the secondary servers and only found that the following lines appeared every 30 minutes or so... Any ideas on why this isn't working? Must the option be on for the Parent / CAS server? Thanks! P.S. - If it makes any difference, I just found out that most of the clients already have an older 2007 client installed which will not be used anymore.
