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'
MSI (s) (80:40) [11:40:26:167]: Invoking remote custom action. DLL: C:\Windows\Installer\MSI23B.tmp, Entrypoint: CcmMigratePolicySettingsInit
[11:40:26] Getting settings from WMI and storing in D:\Prog\SMS_CCM\polmig.mof
CustomAction CcmMigratePolicySettingsInit returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)
Action ended 11:40:26: CcmMigratePolicySettingsInit. Return value 3. More...

Today I realised that all the SC 2012 have been released to RTM and have been available for download on MSDN since April 2. 2012.
I have not seen any blogs about this so it must be a well-kept secret.
Especially I am glad that the SCCM 2012 has gone RTM....
