SCOM 2012 R2 # Windows Server agents remain in pending management

Hi,
First I installed one SCOM 2012 R2 Ops Manager. On same SCOM ops manager I added 3 windows server agents to monitor as below..
one 2008 R2 AD server
one Lync 2013 FE server
one Exchange server 2013
Now due to some technical issues later I had to completely remove/uninstall SCOM 2012 R2 setup. But I forgot to uninstall/remove 3 agents first before uninstalling SCOM 2012 R2 ops manager :( However I did manual uninstall of Microsoft monitoring agent setup
from all 3 monitored agent servers.
Now I setup new SCOM 2012 R2 ops manager once again. FQDN of new SCOM has been changed now, though server is in same domain as old one. Problem I am facing here is " I cannot able to add those 3 agents back into new SCOM ops manager. When I install
agent back onto those 3 servers (by agent discovery or manual setup) , servers remains in pending management. I used power shell command to approve all 3 but even after approval servers are not being monitored. Health status always showing not monitored. A
blank green circle.
I think I didn't properly removed old agent setup, & somehow those 3 agents still bound to old SCOM ops manager.
Could you please help me how I can remove remaining components of old agent setup from windows agent servers and monitor them with new SCOM?
BR,
Ajit

Ensure that the following registry keys are deleted:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService
Reboot the agent machine (if possible)
Delete the agent from Agent Managed in the OpsMgr console.
Then try to discovery and push agent from console if failed. Try to install it manual and then from pending management click approved.

  • SCOM 2012 collect Windows Audit logs and forward them to a Linux Syslog server

    Hello:
    1. We have a SCOM 2012 server.
    2. We have SNARE agents for PCI systems, but now we want to save money by gathering all events for all Windows servers using its native features.
    3. We also have a centralized Linux server running SYSLOG which aggregates the logs to our Dell LogVault retention appliance (for PCI purposes)
    Thus, my question:
    In effort to remove the SNARE agents from the windows servers, can we implement Audit Collections Services (ACS) in the windows environment so that they collect/forward audit/event logs to the SCOM 2012 server and then SCOM forwards the events to the centralized
    syslog Linux server? In which case they are aggregated to the Dell appliance.
    We prefer to use the Linux syslog as the centralized log server but would like to know how to go about implementing the solution above.
    Many thanks,

  • SCOM 2012 R2 Report Server component install to SQL 2012 Sp1 error?

    Hi All
    Im having issues installing SCOM 2012 R2 Report Server component to a SQL 2012 Sp1 Server (which is a Windows 2012 R2 Standard server).  Im trying to install to the SQL Default server instance, note that the server also has a named instance
    which hosts the SCOM databases.  SQL Reporting Services is up and running fine (can access the web urls etc).  Im also using the SCOM install account wich has full SQL and SCOM Server admin rights for the install.  Ive checked that the Firewall
    is off locally on the SQL Server, Ive also checked that the existing SCOM components are all in a Healthy state in the SCOM console.
    The installed version of SQL Server could not be verified or is not supported. Verify that the computer and the installed version of SQL Server meet the minimum requirements for installation, and that the firewall settings are correct. See the Supported
    Configurations document for further information.
    Ive attempted the install on a standalone SQL Server away from the SQL Server hosting the SCOM databases, but encounter the same error.  The full SCOM MSI Installer log details are below, line that appears most relevant is below but unsure why
    this would be the case (same account that I used for SQL install etc).  Any help much appreciated! : )

  • Connect SQL Server 2012 from Windows Server 2003 with native client 9.0

    Hi,
    I currently have a setup where ETL tool Ab Intio, running on a Linux server, connects to the SQL Server 2005 through a passthrough Wintel server with Windows Server 2003 OS using SQL server native client 9.0
    Now I have the requirement to upgrade the SQL server from 2005 to 2012.
    My question is, will it be possible to connect to SQL server 2012 through Windows Server 2003 with native client 9.0?
    As per the specs, I need native client 11.0+ to fully support SQL Server 2012, but then, as per specs, native client 11.0 doesnot run on Windows server 2003. OS upgradation is currently not on the cards.
    So will it be possible to the run the basic queries we use currently, if we can connect SQL server 2012 through Windows Server 2003 with native client 9.0/10.0, without updgrading the OS of the Wintel server?
    Thanking you in advance! 

    Hi Soumya,
    Yes, you can use the SQL Server Native Client shipped with SQL Server 2005 to connect to a SQL Server 2012 instance, and there is no need to upgrade the operating system.

  • Deploy scom 2012 r2 on server 2012 r2

    Going to deploy scom 2012 r2 on server 2012 r2 with sql 2012 sp1. a few questions before starting:
    1. roles placement: server1 - management server, operation console;
                                 server2: database server, reporting server;
                                 Not sure where to place web console - server1 or server2?
    2. what are the least privileges to have for the installation account - domain user with local administrators?
        should the servers' system account need to be member of local administrators?
    3. what about other SCOM specific accounts? what least privileges they need?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. You can place it on the 1st server. do note however the downside doing all in one box SCOM components.
    2. It would be best to use a domain user account with local admin rights on the box
    3. Its all in the SCOM deployment docs..

  • Cannot install SQL Server Native Client 2012 on Windows Server 2008 Data Center

    Is it possible to install SQL Server Native Client 11.0 (SQL Server 2012) on Windows Server 2008 Datacenter?
    I tried to install it, but I get this error message:
    "Installation of this product failed because it is not supported on this operating system. For information on supported configurations, see the product documentation."
    Based on this article (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc280356.aspx), I see one of the supported operating system is Windows Server 2008.

    Hello,
    Can you try to download and install Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 from the following link, and then reinstall the SQL Server Native Client 11.0 again?
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=16468
    Microsoft SQL Server 2012  Native Client is included in the SQL Server 2012 Feature Pack. Based on the requirement of
    the download page , you should apply SP2 for Windows Server 2008.

  • Need help installing sql server 2012 on windows server 2012 core

    Hi Guys 
    I am having trouble installing sql server 2012 on windows server 2012 core. I am doing this on VM and my VM is not connected to internet. 
    This setup is part of preparing lab for sql serve exam 70-462. I would really appreciate your help.
    I am including the links to the log files that were generated after installation. There are following 2 files
    Component Update and
    Detail_Global_Rules
    Thanks

    Hi
    iworkonline,
    Regarding to your original question, you can work around it according to Prashanth’s post or unclick the “Include SQL Server Product Updates" checkbox when installing SQL Server on your VM.
    Regarding to your second question, I make a test using TechNet Virtual Lab and everything works as expected . Below are my steps.
    1. Choose Web client after laughing the Lab.
    2. Choose SQLONE machine and “OPEN CHARMS” as follows, then search SQL Server Management Studio, use it to connect to the default instance (which has been installed in the lab).
    From your description, you get error message “Device not ready”. Could you please post more details? Are you installing SQL Server 2012 on the TechNet Virtual Lab?

  • SCOM 2012 SP1 SQL Server 2008 R2 Clustering Monitoring?

    We have a new print management system that was setup using SQL server 2008 R2 clustering.  Right now we have SQL MP (monitoring)(discover) 6.3.173.1.  They had a failover occur a week ago and SCOM didnt throw any alerts.  As a temporary
    fix, I found some correlated events and setup a monitor for those events on the servers.  However, the system owner wants to know if there is a MP that will monitor for a SQL cluster failover event.  I have looked and looked and cant seem to find
    anything that gives a whole lot of detail on this.
    Thanks
    EFD
    Warm Fuzzies!

    Yes, you can monitor SQL Cluster 2008 using SCOM 2012 SP1. but you need to install SQL MP and Windows Cluster MP and Enable proxy Agent on physical nodes.
    You can refer below link {it's same for SCOM 2012}

  • Trouble installing SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012

    I have a brand new install of Windows 2012 Server Standard Edition. I am trying to get SQL Server 2012 installed on it, but have been having a lot of trouble.
    When I run the System Configuration Checker everything passes except for "Setup administrator" -
    Rule "Setup administrator" failed. The account running SQL Server Setup does not have administrator rights on the computer. To continue, use an account with administrator rights.
    If I go to try the "New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to an existing installation then I get the same "Setup administrator" error plus the following one.
    Setup account privileges
    Rule "Setup account privileges" failed.
    The account that is running SQL Server Setup does not have one or all of teh following rights: the right to back up files and directories, the right to manage auditing and the security log and the right to debug programs. To continue, use an account with both

    My attempts to install are failing with a message "Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing....Error code: 0x800705070".
    I am posting this on the Wondows 2012 Server forum but I have had exactly the same problem as described below with Windows 2008 R2 SP1.
    As the title says this is on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 host with all current updates. I have downloaded the ISO file from a Technet subscription file twice, once by direct download and once by the Akamai downloader. The virtual disk is connected with
    the default IDE driver. I mounted both installation images as ISOs, located on a file system on the host server.  I have tried installs by deleting the VM and recreating both the VM and a new virtual disk, re-using a previously created virtual disk, and
    deleting the partitions in a previously created virtual disk, and executing the format command, and then attempting the install.
    I have exactly the same problem trying to create a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 VM on the same host OS.  With those attempts, I downloaded the Technet subscription iso 4 or 5 times, and burned one to a DVD which I attached to the created VM.  Same
    error message.
    The virtual machines and virtual disks I created and used were all located on an RAID5 array, on a builtin Intel RAID controller using Intel Rapid Storage Technology software version 11.2.0.1066.  The host Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 uses this file system
    but the OS is installed on a dedicated drive (C).
    I had previously created a guest VM with Windows Server 2008 R2 (several months worth of updates ago) without drama.
    I have spent hours reading forums and blog articles on this.  A common response is to download the iso another time, and/or burn it to a DVD instead of mounting an iso image. Although I didn't do the later yet with 2012 Server, but I have done these
    other steps attempting to install Windows 2008 Server SP1. The install process takes a while (not to mention doing multiple downloads). Given this seems to be a common recommended remedy, and indeed based on posts does seem to eliminate the problem is some
    cases, why doesn't somebody change the Microsoft installer program so it does a thorough integrity check at the beginning of the install process?

    Jeff,
    After the exercise of Windows 2012 Server successfully installing (as I described above) I also successfully installed Windows 2008 R2 on Hyper-V.  From my standpoint, I have eliminated the problem (which isn't the same as correcting the problem).
    The answer to your specific question regarding Hyper-V support is that the motherboard I am using, an Asus P5Q, is not supported by Windows 2008 R2 because it doesn't use ECC memory, and the vendor doesn't say it supports Windows 2008. But I am sure you
    know the motherboard vendors often don't test older motherboards with newer software versions.  It appears that in specifying ECC memory Microsoft is trying to protect users of Windows Server from hurting themselves, not saying the software won't run.
    Having said that, my suspicion in the beginning was, and still is, that it was some variable(s) left in an unknown state in the Hyper-V environment, which was why after trying to install Windows 2008 R2 several times I tried Windows 2012 which resulted in
    the same error, and then encountered the same error trying to install Windows 7 on the same Hyper-V installation. The specific Hyper-V Windows 2008 R2 server had run without any operating problems for months before I started having trouble, and although it
    had been quite a while since I had created VMs, that process used to work.  The hardware didn't change. What changed was applying updates through Microsoft Update, and a few access control rights I changed, and at least I think, I set back to their original
    value.
    So in short, no, my hardware isn't supported by Windows 2008 Server.  Two, your assertion that you are running the same software configuration that I am is very unlikely to be true. There are an extremely large number of things which are different between
    your test system and mine, such as which Windows 2008 components are installed, what updates were installed and in what order they were installed, and what other third party software each of us is running, and between AD, and all the features, a large number
    of potential differences in ACLs, options, etc. and I don't for a minute think this particular problem was caused by the underlying hardware.
    I do appreciate your taking the time to try to help me, and I hope there is one thing you and I could agree on. Microsoft could pretty easily make it much easier to isolate problems. In this day and age reporting hex error codes (as opposed to doing the
    table lookup in the error handling proc), and not providing more diagnostic information seems to me to be almost quaint.  And in this case Microsoft can dismiss my problems on the grounds it was all on unsupported hardware. Unfortunately, I think they
    are missing an opportunity to make their software better, because in my opinion what I encountered there are a set of conditions which will cause installations to fail that aren't going to get corrected.

  • SQL 2000 LINKED SERVER ERROR 7303 WITH SQL 2012 ON WINDOWS SERVER 2012 R2

    Hi all,
    I have a problem with SQL Server 2012 and a linked server for SQL 2000 database.
    System specification:
    Windows server 2012 64 bit
    SQL SERVER 2012 64 bit
    REMOTE SERVER SQL 2000 32 bit
    I've installed sql native client 32bit,create a SYSTEM DSN odbc connection with "SQL Server" driver named "MYSERVER".
    Create a linked server with the query below in SQL 2012:
    EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server =N'MYSERVER', @srvproduct=N'MYSERVER', @provider=N'MSDASQL', @datasrc =N'MYSERVER', @location=N'System';
    EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'MySERVER',@useself=N'True',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=NULL,@rmtpassword=NULL
    GO
    but when i browse the linked server i receved error 7303.

    You need 64-bit MSDASQL. It is the bitness of the server you are connecting from that matters. 64-bit executables cannot hook into 32-bit DLL.
    However, I suspect that you will not get things to work anyway. At least I have not seen anyone this far who has been able to set up a linked server from SQL 2012 to SQL 2000. I know that when I tried this, the following providers had this result:
    SQLNCLI11 - does not support connections to SQL 2000.
    SQLNCLI10 - failed with some obscure message that I don't recall.
    SQLNCLI - Don't recall that the problem was here.
    SQLOLEDB - SQLOLEDB is always replaced with the most recent version of SQLNCLI, so this fails because of lack of support.
    I don't think I got through all version of the ODBC drivers, though.

    What I have done to try to troubleshoot this issue is:
    Reinstalled DPM - No sucess
    Restarted the Hyper-v Host - No sucess
    I'm at the point where I am out of ideas and google hasn't given me much.
    /Joseph

    i have the same error.
    "vssadmin list writers" shows last error unknown for all writers
    disk space is sufficient
    ntbackup of systemdrive and systemstate runs fine.
    i installed KB940349 which fixes some vss related issues but the problem is still there.
    any ideas?
    Thanks.
    When you have vssadmin reporting unknown error the only way to reset the vsswriters (as I understand it please correct me if I'm wrong :) ) is to restart the machine. The Fellenator is correct, make use that the vsswriter is working correctly since this
    is the main function DPM is using when taking backup. He's also right in saying that it's outside the scope! Create a new thread on your error, then you will get much better responce!

  • Connecting to an external SSAS cube in SSDT 2012 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Core

    Good Evening,
    We are experiencing issues when executing an SSIS package from a SQL Server job. However, when we execute the package locally, it is
    successful. The package connects to an external SSAS cube using MDX. I have attached the error message below. The connection manager is OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 11.0. We can successfully ping the external site where the cube is located from the
    server with the job.
    We are using Windows Server 2008 R2 Core. We are trying to access an external cube through HTTPS by sending a username/password in the connection string. This is sent through an OLE DB connection in SSIS. I found an article which says that "Because
    there is no Web browser, you cannot activate a Server Core installation or access the Internet through a firewall that requires users to log on." Does anyone have any additional details on this...is this a futile effort?
    Thanks - Brett

    Hi Brett,
    According to your description, you are experiencing the error when you connect to SQL Server Analysis Services database on a SSIS package, right?
    In your scenario, you said that the package can be executed successfully on your local environment, the issue only occurs on the SSAS server. So please ensure that the provider was installed on the server. Besides, here is a blog which describe how
    to configure the Analysis Services Processing Task in SQL Server 2012 Integration Services, please refer to the link below to see the details.

  • Upgrade Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2 in-place upgrade

    I have tried to do an in place upgrade for Windows Server 2012 Standard to Windows Server 2012 R2 using the in-place upgrade at least a dozen times. Always with the same unhelpful failure message. 
    I have tried downloading the latest (setup) update and not downloading it - makes no difference - same error.
    I would really rather upgrade this server than re-install. I have scoured the internet looking for answers and I can't find anything useful. 
    I have downloaded the latest 2012 R2 Standard iso. The version of 2012 installed is a stock retail Standard version it was never an eval version.
    Any help much appreciated.
    Andy

    I did check the article. I did the ADPREP as described and adprep worked fine. Unfortunately it did not make any difference. Log entries below:
