When installing a ConfigMgr 2007 secondary site I have seen several times that it keeps showing "Install Pending" in the ConfigMgr console.
There are several problems that can lead to this. I will try to mention the problems here and how I have solved them.
The secondary sit server is not added to the SMS_SiteToSiteConnection_XXX group on the primary ConfigMgr server.
During the installation of the secondary site the installation program should add the secondary site server to the local group SMS_SiteToSiteConnection_XXX (where XXX is the site code of the primary server) on the primary site server.
Add the secondary site server to the group SMS_SiteToSiteConnection_XXX.

I had a ConfigMgr 2007 installation where the DB was placed on a SQL cluster.
ConfigMgr was configured to do a backup every night but it failed every time.
A look in the backup log showed the following error:
Info: Sending message to start the SQL Backup…
Couldn’t connect to \\SQLcluster registry

Today I had a strange problem when instaling a Management Point (MP) on a Primary ConfigMgr 2012 site server that is a child of a ConfigMgr 2012 Central Administration Site.
The installation of the MP failed with the well-known 1603 error that is a generic error that can be caused by several things.
A closer look at the mpmsi.log file showed the following cause of the problem:
Action start 11:40:26: CcmMigratePolicySettingsInit.
MSI (s) (80:94) [11:40:26:152]: Note: 1: 2235 2:3: ExtendedType 4: SELECT `Action`,`Type`,`Source`,`Target`, NULL, `ExtendedType` FROM `CustomAction` WHERE `Action` = 'CcmMigratePolicySettingsInit'
