Error 25211 Failed to install performance counters


During SCOM 2012 R2 Agent installation, I got error:

Product: System Center Operations Managers 2012 Server -- Error 25211.Failed to install performance counters.. Error Code: -2147024809 (The parameter is incorrect.).


Potential solution (worked for me):

- patch your server http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2877211

    The agent can be installed using the NOAPM switch. From a command prompt with Admin rights I used:
    MOMAgent.msi /qb NOAPM=1 USE_SETTINGS_FROM_AD=0 USE_MANUALLY_SPECIFIED_SETTINGS=0 MANAGEMENT_GROUP=MGname MANAGEMENT_SERVER_DNS=servername.domainname MANAGEMENT_SERVER_AD_NAME=servername SECURE_PORT=5723 ACTIONS_USE_COMPUTER_ACCOUNT=1 AcceptEndUserLicenseAgreement=1

    Hi All,

    I had this same issue on my Windows server 2012 R2 Agent. I used the switch NOAPM, But still not luck.

    I took a reboot and i dint see the error again. I would recommend not to use NOAPM switch instead try a reboot.
