Cannot Install OpsMgr 2012 Agent. The Agent Management Operation Agent Install failed for remote computer (80004021).
I think a number of you might have tried this and wondering why you’re getting a failure. Trying to install the OpsMgr agent onto a server gives you this error:-
The Agent Management Operation Agent Install failed for remote computer MY-SCSMMS01.mcm.local. Install account: MCM\scomaction
Error Code: 80004021
Error Description: The operation attempted is not supported.
Microsoft Installer Error Description:
For more information, see Windows Installer log file "C:\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\AgentLogs\MY-SCSMMS01MOMAgentMgmt.log" on the Management Server.
Now, you may soon realise that the server that failed is a System Center Service Manager server. Just in case you don’t yet know, it is not supported to install a OpsMgr agent on a Service Manager server. So the only way you can perform monitoring is through an agentless monitoring method. Hope that helped reduce some of your headache trying.
