SCE 2010 – Installation Fails Error 1603

so installing a fresh install of SCE 2010 with all the pre-reqs installed

and the install fails… very strange…

but it again was strange and simple fix and worth mentioning for those who are installing SCE 2010

 

DONT TICK USE MICROSOFT UPDATE!

i know but apparently if it cant contact the microsoft update server or any glitch at all with it, it fails the installation!

 

so untick it and hey presto it works! 🙂

so i have been doing a lot of Configuration Manager Work lately out in the big bad world!

so to make my life easier (and i can hand it over) i have started to produce some videos and word doc’s around the components of it.

So…. this section is all about OSD Deployment

hoping to complete Software Deployment soon

and installing configuration manager (and then fun you can have…)

here is the link to the video

ok i know its old news but i have been asked a lot about it lately and customers wanting to check if their old servers can run

hyper-v and if the processors support Virtualization….

so i decided to repost the reference to it….

ok another gem of an issue

using the EMC and as you are navigating around or opening up properties of an item you get this message an error occurred which caused a change of domain controller etc… and then you have to reopen the item or re-navigate to where you where going

very frustrating ….

easy fix though and it is out there on the web but hard to find :/

so….

close the exchange console

simply go to c:\users\<profile>\appdata\roaming\microsoft\mmc

locate the microsoft exchange cache and delete and restart the MMC

problem solved 🙂

ok… fairly simple

 

you are in powershell running test-outlookconnectivity and you use either tcp or http as the protocol

and you get a failure for the RFRI and NSPI part….

i checked everywhere on the web and could not find the answer

i checked the autodiscover uri and that the databases in use had the right client access server set

but i did not check the exchange address book service!

so lesson learnt first thing first CHECK that all automatic exchange services are started and running ok

🙂
