SCCM 2012 SP1 client doesn't instal on Windows server 2008 core

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm having problems installing SCCM 2012 Client (I have SCCM 2012 SP1 CU3 to be exact) on my Windows 2008 (NOT R2) Server Core Systems (x86). According to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682077.aspx#BKMK_SupConfigClientOS it is supported.I did update it to SP2, but still no luck.

 

As far as I see (if I understool log correctly) the problem is with missing .NET Framework 2.0. It also seems that in is impossible to install .NET Fremework on Windows Server 2008 (NON-R2) Core installation.

 

(I've attached logs as .zip, because they were 10MB big).

 

Can anyone help?

 

Regards,

spitfire

Yes I did. I have some Client computers that are working now. I'm also able to deploy Windows 8 and 2012R2 through Task sequence via PXE (and I've tried the same way of deployment with 2008 Core - but it doesn't install client = build &capture doesn't work).

 

 

EDIT: All my clients get DNS settings from DHCP, and this server boots from PXE = it must be getting correct settings form DHCP.

i can see that windows is on D:, is that correct ?

 

File D:\Windows\ccmsetup\{1AF71F68-6089-4211-ADDC-06DF40606141}\client.msi installation failed. Error text: ExitCode: 1603 Action: ErrorMessages:

 

 

if you've hardcoded anything to run from C:\ then this might explain the failure..

 

however the command line looks ok

 

Ccmsetup command line: "D:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSD\P0100002\ccmsetup.exe" /useronly /source:D:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSD\P0100002 /config:MobileClient.TCF /status:496

 

 

the client.msi.log reveals...

and then later...

the errors pretty much explode after that point, so can you tell us a little bit more about how you are installing these systems and how did you capture/install the original os ?

Build and capture did not work for me for Windows 2008 at all (I've never seen any error message, it does the build, but not capture).

Here are my (very basic) task sequences for B&C and standard install (probably only customized thing in both is OS image (version is 6.0.6001.18000, chosen edition is SERVERDATACENTERCORE).

Here it is. I didn't see it fail, but I end up on standard post-setup steps.

 

Note: I did re-upload W2k*8 image to DP, but used MSDN-downloaded SP2 version (not sure what previous one was, but probably RTM),

Even though http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682077.aspx#BKMK_SupConfigClientOS says, that "The Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008 (SP2)" "x86, x64" Even supports installation of cm client for:

  • System Center 2012 Configuration Manager with no service pack
  • System Center 2012 Configuration Manager with SP1

I have the latter one, but I'm asking: how is it possible? I mean, .NET framework is NOT supported od Windows Server 2008 Core installations, and ccmclient requires .NET 4.0, right? Or am I getting something wrong?

 

Anyway, I posted logs above, but really have no idea what is the case.

have you seen this ?

 

The volume that contains the OS is not the active partition. This is not support for Windows Vista and below. Please consult the product documentation for requirements when capturing an operating system image.

Failed to validate for capture.
The request is not supported. (Error: 80070032; Source: Windows)

 

so could it be the 'assign c: to ... in your task sequence ? have you tried making the os volume active using diskpart ?

i'ts possible via switches when you install the client - see
