SCVMM 2012 Installation failed with Fatal Error

Hi There!

Just a quick note of an odd issue I encountered today.

While installing the latest VMM I bumped into a fatal error.

When expecting the SetupWizard.log under C:\programdata\VMMLogs I could see that the MSI stopped with error the All-Fully-Self-Declaring error 1603… NOT Knipogende emoticon

The last action before the error was “AddCarmineToServersGroup”, so it looks like the installer wants to add my machine into a group.

And indeed my machine needs to be added to the local group “Virtual Machine Manager Servers”.

My idea got confirmed when reading following TechNet page.


So why couldn’t my machine be added to the local group?

Well… for some reason my Computer Account was disabled in Active Directory Verwarde emoticon

The same symptom occurs as well when you have problems with your SIDs.

Till next Time!
