using SCCM 2012 in a LAB - Part 1. Installation

Recommended Posts



nothing strange about them, the SCCM box has 2gb RAM, 4gb is really recommended but in a lab 2gb seems to work fine, it's got 150GB hdd partitioned as os=30gb and d=rest of drive,

the AD1 server (domain controller/dhcp/dns) is 512 mb ram and 30gb hdd,

anything else you want to know ? i have created separate networks so for example #5_SCCM_RC is on a virtual network spanning 192.168.5.x and #3_SCCM_RC is 192.168.3.x means i can have multiple environments which are not interfering with each other

i followed the steps above and got error 1603. i have the MPsetup.log and mpmsi.log. its a brand new image win2k8 r2 sp1 machine. no patches applied as of yet. sql is on the same machine.i checked and it said before that msxml6 was not installed, i installed it separately. its a single dc and all the permissions are set. not sure if it matters but its in a forest with sccm 2007 r2. here are the logs

UPDATE

Got it to finally work, it apparently doesnt like the fact that sccm 2007 installed a client on it and when installing the MP it installs a 2012 client on it as well. i simply removed the client and reinstalled the MP.

mpMSI.log

MPSetup.log

Im getting this as a warming

 

WAIK language version should be same as the OS language of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager site server. For more information on WAIK installation see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=206077.

 

Do I need to install WAIK for Windows 7 ?

 

I have a SCCM 2007 running with WAIK installad in production, and a SCCM 2012 with WAIK installed in a test lab, but I can not get PXE book to function correctly, so Im doing a re-install of the test lab at the momemt.

I changed all region settings, including Non-unicode, to English (United States) and the problem disappeared. No need to install WAIK, as it will be installed by SCCM

OK, so I finally got a chance to uninstall the Beta2 version, and I'm going on the RC version. I must admit, when I did the Beta, I didn't use the accounts you had in Step 1. I just mimicked the accounts we use in production; well at least to a degree anyhow. So this time, I want to use the accounts you state. I Must be missing something somewhere, because when I try and open the ConfigMgr 2012 Console on the SCCM 2012 server as the SMSadmin account, I get the following error:

 

Insufficient User Permissions to Display Configuration Manager Information

 

The user account running the Configuration Manager console has insufficient permissions to read information from the Configuration Manager site database. The account must belong to a security role in Configuration Manager. The account must also have the Windows Server Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) Remote Activation permission for the computer running the Configuration Manager site server and the SMS Provider.

 

Where did I hose this at? I have SMSadmin listed as a member inside the local administrators group on the SCCM 2012 server. Sorry for asking such a basic question, but I am having to look at multiple products at once, and now it seems like they are all blending together and it's hard for me to keep track of what does what and where and why. Thanks for any advice.

It works ok but does lag occaisonally, the lag is all disc related, if i had the money i'd be going SSD the whole way

Ok, new issue. I have downloaded the SCCM 2012 RC2 from the link in the guide. I have licensing for SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise, so I installed that version instead of an eval version on my server. I have done all teh updates for my server, and this time, smartly made a snapshot of the VM. So, I'm onto the Install SCCM step. Right after the Microsoft Software License Terms page, I get a Prerequisite Licenses page which shows Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client and Microsoft Silverlight 4 with the I accept these license terms check box under each. I don't see this in the guide and don't remember seeing this with my Beta 2 install, but I also did the SQL 2008 SP1 install with that one. I have restarted the VM a few times now hoping maybe it was just a a restart.

 

Have I missed something? This time I have followed the guide to the letter and an logged in currently as the SMSadmin account for the install of SCCM2012 RC2. I'm afraid to check teh boxes as to me it seems like it will install these pieces which I don't need. I also have already install Silverlight 4 and all it's updates. I guess I'm wondering why it didn't detect that I have these prereq's already installed. Any help is appreciated. I see someone else did the same install I have done with R2 and CU4 and it worked for them, so I must have missed something somewhere.

that's RC2 specific, just accept those three license agreements and continue

Hi everyone,

 

I'm new member and I need your help, please!

 

I've followed this topic which I found very clear, but it does'nt work.

 

I installed SQL server 2008 then SP1 then CU14 on a Win server 2008 R2 Standard.

I did all of the configurations as in this tutorial but I got this error message below:

120305094502988700.jpg

 

My programs and Features:

120305094612606586.jpg

 

and

12030509484891608.jpg

When I check the ConfigMgrSetupWizard.log:

 

02.03.2012 16:07:50: ConfigMgrSetupWizard Verbose: 1 : Cannot not connect to SMS provider on local machine. Either it is not installed or access is denied.

-------------------------------

I tried to search on the web someone having this error message but no success...

Do you have any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

 

Zifou.

I installed SQL server 2008 then SP1 then CU14 on a Win server 2008 R2 Standard.

 

that version of SQL is not supported, the supported versions are listed below:-

 

Database Requirements

  • SQL Server 2008 SP2 with CU 7
  • SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP1 and Cumulative Update 4
  • SQL Server Express 2008 r2 WITH SP1 and CU 3 is supported only on secondary sites
  • SQL Reporting Services is ONLY reporting solution

For Supported Configurations information, visit http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682077.aspx.

Also when downloading the various SQL service packs and cummulative updates ensure you download the right architecture version (x86 / x64). The default download will differ deppending on the machine you are downloading from. For example, we were using an x86 PC to download updates so it only listed the x86 version. Annoyingly the x86 version of the patch runs on an x64 installation but it only upgrades the Shared Features of SQL and not the full bhuna so the SCCM installation (RC2) still fails. Obvious when you know.

Thanks for the tutorial.

I got stuck when SCCM is trying to create a database during installation and failing. When i try to open a SQL Server Management Studio and connect with Windows Authentication "logged in as SMSAdmin" i am failing to connect. SQL has been installed under administrator. So i think its a permission issue. I am not sure what rights i need to grant to SMSAdmin in order to resolve this?

Thank you.
