AEM ADMX File for OpsMgr 2007 R2

6:31 am in Uncategorized by alkin

Last week I was at a customer to implement AEM.

The customer is fully on Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7 and only want to use ADMX files and not ADM files to configure his GPO’s. And here is the issue….When running the AEM configuration wizard the settings are stored as an ADM file not an ADMX file.

Note that the ADM file format that the wizard provides will work on Windows 7 and W2K8 R2 but some companies have new policies in the place which require them to only use ADMX file types and so this is the stop gap solution for now.

Luckily the product team just release yesterday an ADMX file for OpsMgr 2007 R2!! http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2011/06/08/aem-admx-file-for-opsmgr-2007-r2.aspx  Notice that this has been through very limited testing but it worked like a charm in my customer environment!

So a big thank you to the product team and especially Satya to help me out with this.

thank-you

Thanks,

The System Center Management service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259

5:19 am in Uncategorized by alkin

I had the following issue on one of my servers

“The System Center Management service terminated with service-specific error %%-2147467259” when I wanted to start my Healthservice.

When searching the internet I found the following blogpost http://blogs.technet.com/b/smsandmom/archive/2008/04/30/opsmgr-2007-healthservice-service-fails-to-start-with-25362-warning.aspx  . The blogposts says that the State directory registry key can be corrupt but that was fine in my case.

But at the end of the blogpost I found my solution:

This error can be caused by the WindowsAccountLockDownSD Key in at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService\Parameters\Management Group\<Management Group Name Here> being invalid or non-present.  And indeed, that was my issue: the WindowsAccountLockDownSD Key was missing on my server.

The easiest way to resolve the issue with the Windows AccountLockDownSD key is to export the registry key from a similar, working system and then import it in to the registry of the server experiencing the problem.  Once this is complete the HealthService should start successfully.
