CCMSETUP failure(s)

Okies, a quickie!

I’m now migrating in anger, lol, and making an effort to keep on top of the client deployment failures reported to my FSP server. This one caught my eye:

Aww I bet it’s nothing to do with someone fecking about with stuff.

The error:

Failed to create the CCMSETUP service 5.0.8498.1711 Deployment error : 0x80070430

So I drill into the ccmsetup.log file, and find the usual splattering of claret. After thinning out the symptoms, I believe I find the cause:

Yup… still clearly nothing to do with the user.

The errors:

MSI: Service ‘Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority’ (lpasvc) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.

File C:\WINDOWS\ccmsetup\MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup.msi installation failed. Error text: ExitCode: 1603
Action: InstallServices.
ErrorMessages:
Service ‘Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority’ (lpasvc) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.

So fairly generic, but it tell you where to go next… the clue is in the error. Time to check the MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup log! After drilling through it, I get an error code:

MSI (s) (E8:50) [10:08:22:488]: Executing op: ServiceInstall(Name=lpasvc,DisplayName=Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority,ImagePath=”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Policy Platform\policyHost.exe” /service,ServiceType=32,StartType=3,ErrorControl=32769,,Dependencies=[~],,,,,,)
Error 1923. Service ‘Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority’ (lpasvc) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.
MSI (s) (E8:50) [10:08:22:488]: Product: Microsoft Policy Platform — Error 1923. Service ‘Microsoft Policy Platform Local Authority’ (lpasvc) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services.

A quick bit of research, and that error can occur if the service already exists. I checked the services list on the target PC:

okay, totally the user trying to be clever!

Bingo. The user had disabled an existing instance of the CCMSETUP.EXE service. Naughty…
