SCSM 2012: Error when trying to unregister data warehouse. What to do?

Hi,

I have installed SCSM 2012 on two servers and all databases are in SQL on the Management Server.

SQL has installed on the Data Warehouse server and tried to unregister from the current data warehouse so I can re-register.

I keep getting an error message as I try to unregister. It has been attached below.

Microsoft. EnterpriseManagement. UI .Core. Shared. PowerShell. PSServiceException: A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'Help'.at Microsoft. EnterpriseManagement. UI .Core. Shared. PowerShell. PSHostService.executeHelper(String cmd, Object[] input)at Microsoft. EnterpriseManagement. UI .Core. Shared. PowerShell. PSHostService.Invoke(String cmd, Object[] input) at Microsoft. EnterpriseManagement. ServiceManager. UI. Administration. DWRegistration. Unregistration. DWUnregistrationHelper. Accept Changes(WizardMode wizardMode),

Help me to fix this please.

Thank you.

The only way you can unregister is by deleting the software and reinstalling it back again. For this you need few things first.

  1. Download and install Ccleaner from filehippo.com.
  2. Delete the software and all its shortcuts.
  3. Run the Ccleaner and run the Registry cleaner as it will clear the registries for the software.
  4. Install the software using the old method of installation and this time use the new registration process that you intended at the first place.
  5. After that confirm the registration and restart your computer.
  6. Once done, run the Ccleaner and Registry cleaner again so that you can be sure that there is no other registry remaining that might possibly mess up with it.

Hello,

To my knowledge this is a known error encountered during the registration of SCSM data warehouse. It occurs if the system locale of the service account is not set to English. If you have modified it then reboot it to remove this error. I believe you should ensure the following points.

Normally you should get some entries in the event log.

Go to Event Manager then applications and service log and finally to Operations Manager.

Also check the local settings of the service account.

Check if the connection between SCSM Management Server and the SCSM Data Warehouse Server is working and reporting server is reachable.

I hope this information helps you counter the problem.
