Fix: Configuration Manager 2007 Management Point install fails on Windows Server 2008 with “The error code is 800CC801”

Toolbox3When attempting to install a Configuration Manager 2007 Management Point (MP) on Windows Server 2008, the install may fail with the following errors:

[13:52:07] Enabling BITS
[13:52:08] @@ERR:25006
MSI (s) (DC!FC) [13:52:08:085]: Product: SMS Management Point -- Error 25006. Setup was unable to create the Internet virtual directory CCM_Incoming

<08-27-2010 13:51:30> Fatal MSI Error - mp.msi could not be installed.

Note that the failures are observed on Standard, Enterprise, x86, and x64 versions.  The failures are observed in the following circumstances:

  • After performing a site repair of a site server running on Windows 2008 with a local MP already installed
  • Initial install of an MP on a machine running Windows 2008
  • After removing and attempting to reinstall an MP on a machine running Windows 2008

As of right now, the easiest way to resolve this issue is to remove and reinstall the BITS component.  If the ConfigMgr 2007 Management Point role was already installed then it will also be necessary to remove and reinstall that role once you've done the same with BITS.

Hope this helps,

    I have same exact issue with Server 2008 R2. MP just automatically try to reinstall itself. very strange and it is our Primary server. When MS release fix for that?

    OK, I've done this as well as remove and re-install IIS but end up with the same problem…are there any other solutions?
