How to install a multiple SMS Provider in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1

In ConfigMgr 2012 it's possible to install multiple SMS Providers for High Availability. The SMS Provider is the interface between the ConfigMgr console and the Site database. In an earlier blogpost I have described what to do for installing multiple SMS Providers: How to install a multiple SMS Provider in ConfigMgr 2012. Just follow the steps and you are fine!


Last week I installed an additional SMS Provider in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1. An error message followed because Windows ADK wasn't installed (oops). Because ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 uses Windows ADK, this is needed also on the site server where an additional SMS Provider is installed.

 
Before you run Setup, you must download and install Windows ADK on the site server and on each computer that runs an instance of the SMS Provider. That's mentioned HERE.

The error messages are:
  • CWmi::Connect(): ConnectServer(Namespace) failed. - 0x8004100e
  • INFO: WMI namespace root\MSCluster not exists on <server>
  • CWmiRegistry::WmiOpen: Failed to read key SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Kits\Installed Products on <server>
  • CWmiRegistry::WmiOpen: Failed to get values from SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Kits\Installed Products
  • CWmiRegistry::WmiOpen: Failed to connect to registry on machine <server>. Error code: 2
  • ERROR: Failed to query registry values. 'Windows Deployment Tools' component of ADK not found.
  • ERROR: Failed to query registry values. 'Windows PE' component of ADK not found.
  • Failed to install SDK

After installing "Windows Deployment Tools" and "Windows PE" (both Windows ADK) setup was running fine again. Hope it helps!
