Installing Management Points

Published : June 8, 2005

Properly installing a management point is a straightforward process if all requirements are met before installation. To summarize, management point installation results in the following actions occurring on the computer designated as the management point:

  1. WMI namespaces are created.

  2. Managed object format files are copied into the WMI namespaces.

  3. IIS virtual directories are created.

  4. Application pools are created on servers running Windows Server 2003.

  5. System Monitor performance objects are created.

  6. SMS Agent Host (CCMExec.exe) is installed and started.

  7. Default policies are initialized.

Not all management point problems are immediately obvious. Review the following section if you suspect that your management point was not installed properly.

Before or after management point installation, consider using the SMS Troubleshooter tool to verify that your management point is installed and operating correctly. You can use this tool to check a computer system before or after management point installation to ensure that the installation meets the requirements for management points. When run, the tool indicates whether management point dependencies are met.

The management point may appear to have been installed correctly but running the diagnostic query URL, http://<ManagementPointComptuerName>/sms_mp/.sms_aut?mplist, returns the following error:

401.3  Unauthorized due to ACL on resource

The Mpcontrol.log file that is located in the \SMS\Logs folder on the SMS 2003 site server may contain the following error:

Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

Http verification .sms_aut failed with status code 401, 
Unauthorized $$<SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER><date
time year time zone><thread=2648 (0xA58)>

Cause

The preceding symptoms can occur if the following two domain user accounts have logon restrictions set on one or more computers that are members of the domain:

  • IWAM_name of the domain controller

  • IUSER_name of the domain controller

These accounts are typically created as local accounts on the computer where you installed IIS. However, when IIS is installed on a Windows Server 2003 domain controller that does not have local user accounts, these accounts are created as domain accounts.

The IWAM_<DomainControllerName> and the IUSER_<DomainControllerName> domain accounts are copies of the Domain Guest Account and are created during the IIS Setup process. Therefore, when you make changes to the Domain Guest Account before you install IIS on a domain controller, the changes are inherited by the IWAM_<DomainControllerName>  Domain Account and the IUSER_<DomainControllerName> Domain Account during the IIS installation process.

Additionally, you must make sure that the IWAM_<DomainControllerName> Domain Account is included as part of the domain's IIS_WPG group. If IIS is removed from the domain controller computer, the removal process also removes the IIS_WPG group from all domain controllers because they share the same account database.

Workaround

To work around the problem of account logon restrictions, you must make sure that the Domain Guest Account has the correct attributes you need before you install IIS on any domain controller in your domain.

Make sure the IWAM_<DomainControllerName> account is a member of the <domain>\IIS_WPG group. If you have removed IIS from the domain controller, you must manually add the account as a member of the <domain>\IIS_WPG group for the management point to work. To do this, perform the following procedure.

To remove log on restrictions

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. In Active Directory Users and Computers, expand the name of your domain and click Users.

  3. In the right pane, double-click the IIS_WPG group.

  4. In the IIS_WPG Properties dialog box, click the Members tab and make sure that the IWAM_<DomainControllerName> account is listed.

  5. If the IWAM_<DomainControllerName> account is not listed, click Add.

  6. In the Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, type IWAM_<DomainControllerName> in the Enter Object names to select box and then click OK twice.

    For more information about installing an SMS 2003 management point role on Windows Server 2003 domain controllers, see article 886213 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46612.

Is IIS Installed?

IIS must be installed for the management point to operate. Otherwise, the following symptom may occur.

Symptom

The following MPSetup.log symptom is seen when IIS is not installed:

Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

MP Installation cannot continue.

If IIS is installed, continue to the next question. Otherwise, perform the following procedure.

To install BITS Server Extensions

  1. Open Add/Remove Programs, and then open Windows Components.

  2. Double-click Application Server, select Internet Information Services (IIS), and click OK.

Are BITS Server Extensions Installed?

If you are trying to install a management point on Windows Server 2003, Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) Server Extensions are not installed by default. To determine whether BITS Server Extensions are installed, make sure that the BITS Server Extensions check box is selected, as follows:  

  1. Open Add/Remove Programs, and then open Windows Components

  2. Double-click Application Server, select Internet Information Services (IIS), and click OK.

  3. If BITS Server Extensions are installed, continue to the next question.

Is the Default Web Site Configured for Port 80?

If yes, continue to the next question.

To determine the port of the default Web site, perform the following steps.

To determine the port of the default Web site

  1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, and expand Web Sites.

  2. Right-click Default Web Site, and click properties.

  3. On the Web Site tab, verify that the TCP port is set to 80.

    Other services can bind to port 80 before the default Web site does. If the default Web site is configured to use port 80 and Setup failures indicate that a service is not listening, perform the following step.

  4. Open a command prompt and type Netstat –a –n –o.

    This command outputs a list of all listening ports, associated process IDs, and the port number, as shown in the following example:

    Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

     Proto Local Address Foreign Address State     PID
     TCP   0.0.0.0:80    0.0.0.0:        LISTENING 1732
    
  5. Match the output information against he processes running in the task list by opening a command prompt and then running tasklist /svc.

    This command displays running tasks sorted by process ID. The SVC switch displays the services hosted in each process. Because the W3SVC service runs inside an instance of svchost.exe, the switch is required to verify the World Wide Web service is listening on the port identified previously with the Netstat command, as shown in the following example:

    Image Name   PID       Services                                     
    =============================== 
    svchost.exe  1732      W3SVC

    The following MPControl.log symptoms are seen when the port of the default Web site has been changed. Although the management point setup completes, an error appears in the log file.

    Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

    The MP Troubleshooter tool does not detect whether the port for the default Web site has been changed.  

Is Windows Management Instrumentation Enabled and Running?

Check the Computer Management console, and locate the Services node. Verify that WMI is started.  If WMI is disabled, the management point install process enables and restarts WMI.

Is the Task Scheduler Service Enabled and Running?

Check the Computer Management console and locate the Services node. Verify that Task Schedule service is enabled and running.

Is the System Account of the Server Hosting the Management Point a Member of the SMS_SiteSystemToSQLConnection_<Sitecode> Group?

During installation of the management point, the computer account of the server hosting the management point is added to the group. If the management point does not have permission to add its computer account to the SMS_SiteSystemToSQLConnection_<SiteCode> group on the computer that is running SQL Server, status message 5414 is generated on the site server.  

In addition, the following status message might be generated:

Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

4908 - Site Component Manager could not
add machine account "%1" to the SQL 
Access Group "%2"on the SQL Server machine "%3".

To resolve this problem, manually add the computer account of the management point computer to the SMS_SiteSystemToSQLConnection_<SiteCode> group on the computer that is running SQL Server. In the SMS Administrator console, remove and then re-install the management point. For more information about required permissions that a management point needs to add its computer account to the SMS_SiteSystemToSQLConnection_site code group, see article 829861 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=46668.

To verify that the computer account of the management point computer has adequate credentials to access the SMS site database, perform the following steps.

To verify that the management point computer account has adequate credentials

  1. Install the SQL Server Client tools on the computer hosting the management point.

  2. Log on to the computer hosting the management point with credentials equivalent to the SMS Service Account.

  3. Click Start, and then click Run.

  4. Type cmd, and then click OK.

    If your SMS site is configured for standard security mode, skip the next step. If your SMS site is configured for advanced security mode, continue to the next step.

  5. If your SMS site is configured for advanced security, open a command prompt window with LocalSystem account credentials. To do this, type the following at a command prompt and press ENTER:

    AT FutureTime /interactive cmd

    At the time that you specify, a new Command Prompt window opens that runs under the context of Svchost.exe.

    Cc180191.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gif  Note
    FutureTime is any time that is later than the current time, in 24-hour format.

  6. At a command prompt, type the following and press ENTER:

    osql -S SQLServer -d SMSdbname -E

    SQLServer is the name of the server that is running SQL Server. SMSdbname is the name of the SQL Server database for your SMS site (SMS site database).

    If the command succeeds, your management point has the necessary permissions to access the SQL Server database. The command is successful if the 1> prompt is returned.

  7. Type exit, and press ENTER to return to the command prompt. Continue to the next step if you receive the following error message:

    Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

    Login failed for user '(null)'. 
    Reason: Not associated with a trusted 
    SQL Server connection.
  8. If you received the "Login failed" error message in the previous step, repeat the command but use the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the server that is running SQL Server. For example, type the following:

    osql -S SQLServer.europe.corp.microsoft.com -d SMSdbname -E

    If the command does not succeed, review the DNS settings for the domain where the computer hosting the management point is located.

Have SQL Server Service Principle Name Attributes Been Configured?

The appropriate Service Principal Name (SPN) attributes may not be generated for the account that started the SQL services. To resolve this issue, you must manually create the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and NetBIOS SPN entries. To do this, you can use the SetSPN utility from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit. You can download the SetSPN utility from the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46635.

You must run the SetSPN utility on a computer that resides in the SQL Server's domain, and you must use Domain Administrator credentials. Also, you need to determine whether the SQL services run as a domain account or as the local computer account. To use the SetSPN utility to manually create the appropriate SPNs, follow these steps:

  • Use the SetSPN utility when the SQL service is started with a user account.

    • To create the FQDN SPN at a command prompt window, type the following command: setspn -A MSSQLSvc/ SqlHostname.mydomain.com :1433 SqlServiceAccount .

  • Use the SetSPN utility when the SQL service is started with the SQL Server's System Account:

    • To create the FQDN SPN, type the following command at a command prompt: setspn -A MSSQLSvc/ SqlHostname.mydomain.com :1433 SqlHostname .

    • To create the NetBIOS SPN at the command window, type the following command: setspn -A MSSQLSvc/ SqlHostname :1433 SqlHostname .

For more information about problems that might exist with SQL Server SPN registration, see article 832109 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46639.

Have Kerberos Tickets Expired?

The Kerberos ticket cache might have to be reset. Use the Kerbtray tool from the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit to clear the existing Kerberos ticket cache. You can download the Kerbtray tool from the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46641.

For more information about how to use the Kerbtray tool, see article 232179 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46642.

For more information about problems that might exist with Kerberos or the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol, see article 832109 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46639.

Does Kerberos Authentication Fail Between Client and Management Point When the Active Directory Has Not Been Extended?

If your site is in an Active Directory environment where the SMS 2003 installation has extended the Active Directory schema, Advanced Clients communicate with the management point by using the management point computer name. In this scenario, Kerberos authentication should work.

If your site is in an Active Directory environment where the SMS 2003 installation has not extended the Active Directory schema, clients communicate with the management point by using the IP address of the management point. In this scenario, Kerberos authentication might fail if there is no registered Service Principal Name (SPN) for the management point IP address. To fix this issue, you must register an SPN for the IP address of the SMS management point. To do so, use the Setspn.exe utility.

Does the Management Point MPLIST Command Return a Blank Screen?

From the SMS Advanced Client, run http://< managementpointname >/sms_mp.sms_aut?mplist. This should return a blank screen.

If a blank screen is not displayed and an error in the title bar appears, the client is unable to contact the management point successfully. In this case, the client does not receive policy and might not completely install all of its client components.  

Check the MPcontrol.log file for errors. If the management point is operating correctly, entries similar to the following should be in the log:

Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

Http verification .sms_aut succeeded with status 
code 200, OK SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER    
12/6/2004 5:25:06 PM    2008 (0x07D8)
Http verification .sms_aut succeeded with status 
code 200, OK SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER    
12/6/2004 5:35:08 PM    2008 (0x07D8)
Http verification .sms_aut succeeded with 
status code 200, OK SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER    
12/6/2004 5:45:08 PM    2008 (0x07D8)

You can test the mplist test URL with Internet Explorer. To bypass possible name resolution issues, substitute the site server name with the word localhost when testing this URL on the management point—for example, http://localhost/sms_mp.sms_aut?mplist.

Does the Management Point MPCERT Command Return a Long List of Letters and Numbers?

From an SMS Advanced Client, run http://< managementpointname >/sms_mp.sms_aut?mpcert. This command should return a long list of letters and numbers. If the command does not return these results, the client cannot communicate with the database and management point and further troubleshooting is required.

Have You Used the MPGetPolicy Tool?

The purpose of the MPGetPolicy tool is to determine whether the management point is functional and returning the policies. This tool is available in the SMS 2003 Toolkit 2. You can download Toolkit 2 from the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=25444. From an SMS Advanced Client, run the MPGetPolicy tool.

Is the SMS Agent Host Running on the Management Point?

When the WMI stops or is shut down, the SMS Agent Host (CCMexec) service is also stopped because the SMS Agent Host service is dependent on the WMI service. When the SMS Agent Host service is shut down, the SMS 2003 management point cannot respond to SMS 2003 client requests. For more information about WMI stopping or shutting down, see article 830016 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=46643.

Was the IIS Lockdown Tool Applied to the Site Server?

If yes, check the IIS.log file on the management point computer and look for an entry similar to the following:

Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

DateTimeSourceIP - DestinationIPPortNumber 
GET /<Rejected-By-URLScan>~/ccm_system/request
404 ccmhttp

Cc180191.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gif  Notes

  • The IIS.log file is located in the %Windir%\System32\Logfiles\W3svc folder.

  • On management point computers, the SMS 2003 Advanced Client log files are located in the DriveLetter:\SMS_CCM\Logs folder. On all other computers, the SMS 2003 Advanced Client log files are located in the %Windir%\System32\CCM\Logs folder.

Cause: If the URLScan security tool is installed and an SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 URLScan template is not applied, Advanced Clients are prevented from installing.

Workaround: Apply an SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 URLScan template to any computer that has SMS 2003 installed and that uses the URLScan security tool. To do this, obtain and install SMS 2003 Toolkit 2.

You can download SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 from the Microsoft Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=25444. For information about how to apply an SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 URLScan template, see the SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 documentation that is installed with the toolkit.

For more information about the URLScan security tool being installed when an SMS 2003 Toolkit 2 URLScan template is not applied, see article 888936 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46645.

Was Express Setup Used to Install SMS 2003?

When the Express Setup option is used to install an SMS 2003 site server, Setup automatically configures the site server as a management point but not as the default management point for the site. To resolve this issue, you can manually designate the server as the default management point for the site.

To designate the server as the default management point

  1. In the SMS Administrator console, navigate to Component Configuration.

    Systems Management Server
     ( Site Database (site code - site name)
      ( Site Hierarchy
       ( <site code - site name>
        ( Site Settings 
         ( Component Configuration
  2. In the details pane, right-click Management Point, and then click Properties.

  3. On the General tab, click Management Point.

  4. On the Server name drop-down list, select the site server and click OK.

For more information about Express Setup not setting the default management point, see article 830616 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=46647.

Installation Verification Using Windows Audit Process Tracking

If your site uses Active Directory, you can enable the process tracking policy on the site server to verify the process start sequence outlined in the following procedure.  

To enable process tracking on a Windows member server

  • In the Group Policy Object Editor, navigate to Audit Policy.

    Local Computer Policy
     ( Windows Settings
      ( Security Settings
       ( Local Policies
        ( Audit Policy

    In the details pane, right-click Audit process tracking and select both Success and Failure.

After process tracking is enabled, the following process tracking events occur when a management point is installed:

  1. Service.exe starts SMSExec.exe.

  2. The Site Component Manager calls on Services.exe to start the bootstrap service.

  3. Services.exe starts Srvboot.exe.

  4. Srvboot.exe starts MPsetup.exe. When MPsetup.exe is started, it calls MSIExec.exe. At this point, MSIExec.exe installs the BITS 1.5 Server service by calling BITS_V15_Server_Setup.exe, which in turn starts BITSSetup_Srv_Installer.exe.  

  5. After the BITS installer is started, it forces an iteration of IISreset.exe. Svchost.exe runs IISRstas.exe.  

  6. Services.exe restarts Inetinfo.exe.  

  7. When IIS has been restarted, MSIExec starts several different instances of MSIExec, possibly up to three instances.  

  8. Services.exe starts Winmgmt.exe, which starts another iteration of Winmgmt.exe.

  9. MSIExec starts rundll32.exe.

  10. Winmgmt.exe starts another iteration of Winmgmt.exe.

  11. A separate iteration of MSIEexec starts another instance of Rundll32.exe.

  12. Services.exe starts CCMExec.exe.

  13. Services.exe starts a new instance of Srvboot.exe, which is used to start Regfile.exe.

  14. Svchost starts Dllhost.

  15. Installation of the management point is complete.  

Management Point Installation Walkthrough

You can use the following detailed walkthrough to see what occurs when a management point is successfully installed:

  1. The SMS Administrator designates a new site system as a management point in the Site System Properties dialog box in the SMS Administrator console.  

  2. The Site Component Manager performs the following actions:

    • When the Site Component Manager is notified that a site system role, in this case a management point, has been assigned to a server, it records the details in the SiteComp.log file, such as the following:

    • Review the Component Status messages for the server on which the management point is being installed. Status message 1013 should be present and should resemble the following sample:

      Note: The line has been split into multiple lines for readability. However, while trying it out on a system you must enter it as one line without breaks.

      SMS Site Component Manager detected 
      that this component should be installed
      on this site system.  SMS Site Component 
      Manager will attempt to install the component
      every 60 minutes until the installation succeeds.
      

      This is normally followed by status messages 1014 and 1015, indicating that the management point is being installed and that the management point was installed, respectively. If status message 1015 is not present after 10–15 minutes, this could indicate that the installation of the management point has failed. Error status messages detailing possible causes should be evident in place of status message 1015.

      For more information about status messages contained in this section and elsewhere in this document, review the Status Messages section.

  3. Site Component Manager polls all of the site server’s components to verify they are running.  When the site server components have been verified as installed, Site Component Manager begins installing the management point on the site system that will host the management point role. Reviewing Sitecomp.log reveals that the Site Component Manager performs the following actions during management point installation:

  6. Site Component Manager connects to the C:\ drive in this case, creates the C:\SMS directory, and writes the Identification and Tracing keys to the server’s registry, as indicated in the previous log sample.

  7. The management point setup files are copied from the site server by Site Component Manager to the site system in the \SMS\bin\i386 directory, including the following:

    • Baseobj.dll

    • Basesql.dll

    • Basesvr.dll

    • Baseutil.dll

    • Dumpexcp.exe

    • Mp.msi

    • Mpcontrol.dll

    • Mpfdm.dll

    • Mpsetup.exe

    • Ntcrypto.dll

    • Regfile.exe

    • Sms1x.dll

    • Smsexec.dll

    • Smsexecd.exe

    • Smssvreh.dll

    • Smsunzip.dll

    • Smszip.dll

    • Srvboot.exe

    And also \SMS\bin\i386\00000409\baserc.dll

  8. You can view the file copy status in the Sitecomp.log file, similar to the following example:

    Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

  9. Site Component Manager then attempts to add the computer account of the site system hosting the management point to the SMS_SiteSystemToSQLConnection_<SiteCode> group. If it fails to add the account to the SQL Server connection group, status message 4908 is generated.  

  10. Site Component Manager uses the Server Message Block protocol to connect to the Remote Registry Service on the prospective management point. Site Component Manager installs the bootstrap service, srvboot.exe, and then uses the remote registry service to make an RPC call to start it. Log times have been removed for ease of reading.  Typically the setup process does not exceed 10 minutes.  Output similar to the following appears in SiteComp.log:

    Note: The line has been split into multiple lines for readability. However, while trying it out on a system you must enter it as one line without breaks.

    Starting bootstrap operations...

  11. Bootstrap calls the MPSetup.exe where the check for IIS is made, as is noted in the MPsetup.log file:

    Note: The line has been split into multiple lines for readability. However, while trying it out on a system you must enter it as one line without breaks.

  12. If the site system has the Advanced Client installed, the installation directory is set to %windir%\System32\CCM. If the Advanced Client is not installed, the installation directory is set to the SMS_CCM folder on the SMS installation drive.

  13. MP.msi checks the following items:

    • Is a management point already installed with a later version?

      If yes, an error is logged and the setup process stops.

    • Is there at least 70 MB of free disk space?

      If not, an error is logged and the setup process stops.

    • Do the IUSR_<ComputerName> and IWAM_<ComputerName> user accounts exist?

      If not, an error is logged and the setup process stops.

    • Are BITS Server Extensions installed?

      If not, an operating system version check occurs. If the operating system is Windows 2000 Server and the BITS Server Extensions are not installed, MP.msi installs the required hotfixes and then installs the BITS Server Extensions.

      If not, and the operating system is Windows Server 2003, MP.msi logs an error and stops the installation process.

      If BITS Server Extensions are installed, a check is made to verify that the proper BITS hotfixes are installed. If they are not installed, MP.msi installs them.

    • MP.msi checks to make sure MSXML is installed. If it is not installed, MP.msi installs it.  

  14. MP.msi also performs the following actions:

    • Creates the WMI namespaces

    • Compiles MOF files into WMI namespaces

    • Creates the following IIS virtual directories:

      CCM_Incoming

      CCM_Outgoing

      CCM_System

      SMS_MP

    • If the server hosting the management point is running Windows Server 2003, MP.msi creates the following IIS application pools:

      CCM Server Framework

      SMS Management Point

    • MP.msi then registers the following System Monitor performance objects:

      SMS-MP

      CCM

    • MP.msi installs CCMEXEC.EXE (the SMS Agent Host), initializes default policies, starts the SMS Agent Host, and writes the results to MPMSI.log.

    • Upon completion, MP.msi exits and reports success or failure to MPSetup.exe.

  15. MPSetup.exe receives the exit code from MP.MSI and logs the following entry:

    Note: Some of the lines in the following code have been displayed on multiple lines for better readability.

    <12-06-2004 15:43:41> MP.MSI exited
    with return code: 0 
    <12-06-2004 15:43:41>Installation
    was successful.

    An MP.msi return code of 0 indicates that MP.msi completed successfully. Codes other than 0 in the MPSetup.log indicate installation failure.  

  16. Site Component Manager logs the successful installation, similar to the following:

    Note: The line has been split into multiple lines for readability. However, while trying it out on a system you must enter it as one line without breaks.
