Installation of SCOM 2012 Agent on Windows Server 2012 RC fails with “Failed to install performance counters”
When installing a SCOM 2012 Agent locally on a Windows Server 2012 RC server, you might see the error message:
Error 2511.Failed to install performance counters.. Error Code: –2147024809 (The parameter is incorrect.).
Install the .NET Framework 3.5 on the Windows Server 2012 server. Use the Server Manager and use the Add role and Features link to do that.
For pushing out SCOM agents from the console, make sure that the firewall is configured correctly. The the post from Kevin Greene explains this in details: http://kevingreeneitblog.blogspot.ch/2012/03/monitoring-windows-server-8-beta-with_10.html
Thanks to Pixa how supplied this fix in the post from Kevin.
