SRS Server Validation Error – (407) Proxy Authentication Required

Filed under: Errors, Issues, Microsoft, SCOM 2007 — opsmgr @ 3:12 pm


If like me, you are behind a proxy and you use a proxy.pac file to athenticate to the Internet, and you have this set in IE. You may get an SRS Server Validation Error. To find out if this is the case use the following command line to log the instalation of the SCOM Reporting MSI:

msiexec /i reporting2007.msi /l*v c:\reportinglog.txt

Look at the reportinglog.txt file and you will see the following:

Action start 12:25:05: _ValidateSRSWebSiteBindingsCA_Wizard.
MSI (c) (58:44) [12:25:05:568]: Invoking remote custom action. DLL: C:\DOCUME~1\itsjrh\LOCALS~1\Temp\MSI2C2.tmp, Entrypoint: ValidateSRSWebSiteBindingsCA
MSI (c) (58!E4) [12:25:06:146]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding REPORT_SERVER_FULL_HTTP_PATH_VALID property. Its value is ‘0’.
MSI (c) (58!E4) [12:25:12:787]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding FailedMsgProperty property. Its value is ‘CheckHttpAddressResponse: Failed Status Code of The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.’.


Remove all proxy setting from IE and re-run Reporting installation.
