SCCM 2012: CU2 installation failed

Microsoft published CU2 for SCCM 2012 recently. I faced installation issues trying to get it installed. In GUI installer it failed on the second step (update installation).

In logs (c:\windows\TEMP\configmgr2012-rtm-co2-kb2780664-emu.msi.log”) I found:

MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Note: 1: 1708
MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Note: 1: 2205 2:  3: Error
MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Note: 1: 2228 2:  3: Error 4: SELECT `Message` FROM `Error` WHERE `Error` = 1708
MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Note: 1: 2205 2:  3: Error
MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Note: 1: 2228 2:  3: Error 4: SELECT `Message` FROM `Error` WHERE `Error` = 1709
MSI (s) (B8:F4) [10:17:12:708]: Product: Cumulative Update 2 for Configuration Manager RTM (KB2780664) — Installation failed.

I copied an extracted .msi file to a separate folder and tried to run it from there. This time I had clearer errors:

1. WDS is running and need to be stopped

2. There is no enough space on drive C: (even though requisites check passed just fine!)

 

Resolution:

1. I manually stopped WDS

2. I freed 200MB of space on C:\ (error asked for 74MB and I had them free on c: so I decided to free more just to be on safe side)

After that I restarted GUI installer and it finished without errors.

Server 2012 PKI and XP compatibility

When your issuing CA is a nice and shiny Server 2012 your XP machines won’t be able to enroll for certificates.

You need to relax security as described in http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/6289.certification-authority-authentication-level-incompatible-with-windows-xp.aspx

certutil -setreg CA\InterfaceFlags -IF_ENFORCEENCRYPTICERTREQUEST
net stop certsvc & net start certsvc

So it is your choice – lower security level or migrate to Windows 7/8.  XP support will end at April of 2014. Winking smile
