Error 0x80004005: Unspecified error when installing SCOM Agent

Filed under: Errors, Microsoft, SCOM 2007 — opsmgr @ 8:38 pm

You get the following error when installing the SCOM Agent on a server.

Error 0×80004005: Unspecified error

I have had this issue on Citrix Servers only and at the moment have no fix for this. I have heard of the same error occurring on servers running Microsoft Virtual Server and the fix for this is to stop the VM service, manually uninstall the agent and then re-deploy.

The Debug output from the ‘agentlog’ file folder should look like this:
00000244 137.91078186 [15044] CAStartServices: CAStartServices was passed. HealthService
00000246 137.91197205 [15044] CAStartServices: Attempting to start service. HealthService
00000248 199.14978027 [15044] WaitForServiceState: Failed to get service state within time limits. Error Code: 0x80070102.
00000250 199.15072632 [15044] CAStartServices: WaitForServiceState failed for start request. Error Code: 0x80070102.

HealthService 0x80070102 ERROR_SERVICE_DISABLED – The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.



  1. Hi there,

    I know this is an old post, but I was able to fix a similar problem I had with one of my Citrix servers (but the citrix MP isn’t working for me yet…)

    Read my solutions here: (it is the 5th reply in the thread)

  2. Yes, A manual install of the agent is also a known fix while a server is stuck in the ‘Pending Management’ listed as ‘Installation in Progress’.
