Preparing an Installer Computer for System Center 2012 - Unified Installer

Updated: April 1, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Unified Installer

The installer computer is the computer where you run the Unified Installer; it is the computer where you run setup.exe.

When you run the System Center 2012 – Unified Installer, you will be prompted for account credentials to use for installing a System Center 2012 component on a target computer. The account that you specify must be a member of the Administrators group on both the target computer and the installer computer.

noteNote
For this release of the Unified Installer, only a single service account scenario is supported. The account that you use when you run the Unified Installer must be the same account that is used to install the System Center 2012 component.

You might have to make some changes to the Group Policy settings on the installer computer. These changes make it possible for the remote boot strap process to complete successfully.

Edit the following local computer policy settings:

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Credential Delegation / Allow Delegating Fresh Credentials

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Credential Delegation / Allow Delegating Fresh Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication

There are two methods that you can use to make the following policy changes. You can edit the local group policy, or you can open a command prompt and run a series of WinRM commands. If you edit the local group policy, it can take some time for the changes to take effect. If you run the WinRM commands, the changes take effect immediately.

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Remote Management (WRM) / WinRm Client / Allow CredSSP authentication

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Remote Management (WRM) / WinRm Client / Trusted Hosts
