Microsoft released beginning of March the updated Cloud Service Process pack that is now fully compatible with System Center 2012 SP1. You can download the new process pack here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=36497 CSPP is an extension pack built on top of System Center. This release is compatible only with System Center 2012 and 2012 SP1. This release does not contain a new feature set from prior releases.
When I tried to install CSPP I got the following error:
I opened the log files of the CSSP setup that are located at the following location:
When I search through the log file I discovered the following error:
03:12:25:Checking if current user is valid Orchestrator user or not
03:12:27:System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800708AC): The group name could not be found.
My account is a local admin and I could perfectly connect to Orchestator and create and launch runbooks so I was quite suprised to see this error.
So I looked locally in computer managed and you need two groups: the first one is the OrchestratorSystemGroup and the second one is the OrchestratorUserGroup which apparently didn’t exist on my orchestrator server! This means the Orchestator pre-requisites checker is checking for a group which doesn’t exist locally!
So I created manually a new group and added my account to the group
After that I closed and re-opened the setup wizard and everything went through without any issues!
Hope this helps,
