"mp.msi exited with return code: 1603" Mpsetup.log - ConfigMgr 2012


Hi friends.. This post is exclusively for Newbies.

One of my friend was experiencing  an error while trying to install MP in ConfigMgr 2012 Environment. The error message is snipped below.

MpSetup.log

<10/24/13 07:04:56> mp.msi exited with return code: 1603
<10/24/13 07:04:56> Backing up C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\logs\mpMSI.log to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\logs\mpMSI.log.LastError
<10/24/13 07:04:56> Fatal MSI Error - mp.msi could not be installed.
<10/24/13 07:04:56> ~RoleSetup().

After seeing these message i wanted to look at Mpmsi.log since mpsetup.log did not show any specific error so i asked him the copy of mpmsi.log too.. While digging inside mpmsi.log i found these snippet 

MpMSI.log

MSI (s) (7C!6C) [07:04:55:972]: Product: ConfigMgr Management Point -- Error 25051. Internet Information Services BITS support is not installed
Error 25051. Internet Information Services BITS support is not installed
CustomAction CcmValidateServerConfig returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

This shows clearly that IIS extension for BITS is not installed or removed. perhaps he would have installed IIS after installing BITS. So i asked him to install IIS extension for BITS through windows features and try re installing MP.

And voila it succeeded. 

Hope this helps..

Thank you so much. This fixed my issue. I have been looking through Technet articles to NO AVAIL and this finally helped.

This helped me fix an installation for SCCM 2016 Fallback Status Point fpMSI that was failing. Thanks!
