Application Catalog Role in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager


During the deployment of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, I installed the Application Catalog web service point and the Application Catalog website point. While monitoring the SMS_PORTALWEB_CONTROL_MANAGER health, I found an error with message ID 1016

1

Checking SMSPORTALWEBSetup.log pointed me that IIS ASP.net was not registered

3

So I ran the aspnet_regiis.exe –I

4

At that point, I thought the issue was solved as the log showed a success for installing the portal web

5

 

After browsing the Application Catalog, I found that I wasn’t able to connect to the application server

1

The SMSAWEBSVCSSetup.log pointed me that the WCF isn’t activated

2

 

From the Add Features Wizard, I added the HTTP Activation

3

Opening again the Application Catalog, I got the following error: Error message after you install the .NET Framework 4.0: "Could not load type ‘System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule’"

4

Thanks to our KB2015129 article which explains the reason behind this error when enabling .NET 3.0 WCF HTTP Activation.

By running aspnet_regiis.exe /iru the issue was fixed!!

    this doesn't work if running windows 2012. aspnet_regiis.exe is "unsupported on this OS". How do I perform a aspnet_regiis.exe without this command line tool?
