Registration Failed

Recommended Posts

I'm pushing out updates through the management console and 1 laptop is given me the following error:  Installed successfully, but registration failed.  The installation procedure has ended before the client registered.  I've tried uninstalling it, rebooting, and reinstalling it both through the Management Console and manually with new package executable.  The logs show the following error:

2017-07-28 9:03:11 AM    Install client software: MsiExec.exe /i "C:\scclientinstall_90f34261_11de_4345_bb06_66a54f66fd04\ClientSetup.msi" /qn

2017-07-28 9:03:37 AM    The sccomm is installed.

2017-07-28 9:04:17 AM    The client registration result: The installation procedure has ended before the client registered
2017-07-28 9:04:17 AM    After installation, check coreclient is installed.
2017-07-28 9:04:17 AM    The coreclient is installed.
2017-07-28 9:04:17 AM    Get log from sccomm: C:\ProgramData\sccomm\sccomm.log
2017-07-28 9:04:17 AM    File C:\ProgramData\sccomm\sccomm.log does not exist.


It's only the one laptop affected the other 40 workstations installed fine.  Any thoughts on how to fix?

Hi @MeerkatIT, unfortunately, this message is not very meaningful, and your install should be fine. The client did not check back into the server within a set hardcoded timeframe. It could be because of firewall, network speed and another security product interfering with our communication. Let's see what's going on with it, use the tools below...

Step A – Malwarebytes Client Log Set
On the client go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Managed Client and run the tool CollectClientLog.exe. Attach the folder it generates.

Step B – FRST Log
In addition to the check logs, I would like to have you run a tool known as frst. frst will help provide me with a list of installed programs and other information about your computer that will help me see if there are any other problems that are not being detected. Please follow the steps below to run frst.

1.) Please download frst and frst64 from the link below and save it to your desktop:

frst 32 Bit
frst 64 Bit

Note: You need to download the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your computer; that will be the right version. Some traditional Anti-Viruses may false positive the download or running frst, I can assure you it is safe. If this happens, please temporarily disable the AV.

2.) Double-click the purple frst or frst64 icon to run the program. Click Yes when the disclaimer appears.
3.) Click the Scan button
4.) When the scan has finished, it will make 2 log files in the same directory the tool is located, frst.txt and Addition.txt.

Please attach MBMC Client log, frst.txt and Addition.txt in your reply.

Thanks @MeerkatIT, I actually see in the frst log that the service is failing to run, there will be no sccomm log, and that is also why this machine failed to reg, the server client communicator is not running. The realtime engine service is also in a stopped state.

It appears the issues are quite a bit deeper than just Malwarebytes.  I'm going to just wipe the laptop and give it a fresh install of everything.  I've just been informed by the user that several programs don't work at all. Thank you for the help sorry for taking up your time.
