SCOM R2 Agent push failed with error 80070102 and 8000FFFF

We had several new server with Server 2008 R2 that where identically installed.
On non of this systems we where able to push out the scom agent.

A look at the push log file on the management server (gateways in our case) showed the error message 8000FFFF and something about: registering a firewall rule failed.

Strange, the firewall was disabled on all systems. So, we had a look at the rules on one of the servers and saw a rule called “MOM Agent Installer Service”.
Deleting this rule started to make the push work like a charme.

Digging into the closed monitors on the SCOM, we saw, that the first push failed with the message:
“A system update is in progress”.

So, because of the windows update reboot while the first push was tried, the agent wasn’t installed, but the firewall rule not deleted successfully.


If push fails with error 80070102 and 8000FFFF in the log, have a look at the firewall on the system, even it is disabled.
