How to access to SCOM 2012 SP1 Web Console from Windows Server 2003 SP2 / Windows Xp / …

Hello All,

I had a customer that is running SCOM 2012 SP1 as monitoring platform, but he is using a Windows Server 2003 SP2 Citrix image as terminal server, and he wants to be able to access to the SCOM Web Console from that terminal server.

The first time that you access to the SCOM Web Console, you have to configure the Silverlight installation.

But, when you tried that to configure it on a Windows XP SP3, Windows Server 2003 OS, it crashes with the following error:

The procedure entry point LocaleNameToLCID could not be located in the dynamic link library Kernel32.dll

The problem is explained on Mihai’s blog, but the proposed fix only works for SCOM 2012 and it doesn’t work anymore for SCOM 2012 SP1.

Now, how to get this working with SCOM 2012 SP1?

  1. Download the .reg file on Mihai’s blog
  2. Double click on it and accept the registry modification

  3. Start a MMC console and Add the certificates snap-in for the Local Computer store
  4. Expand Local Computer
    Certificates Store > Trusted Publishers > Certificates
  5. Remove all the Microsoft Corporation Microsoft Code Signing PCA certificates (the .reg file installed 3 certificates which are for SCOM 2012, in fact the one for SCOM 2012 SP1 is missing).
  6. Download the attached certificate http://scug.be/christopher/files/2013/03/SCOM.zip

  7. Import it to Local Computer
    Certificates Store > Trusted Publishers > Certificates

  8. Restart internet explorer and go to the SCOM Console Website
  9. Enjoy J

Tim has a really good solution to automate that task by GPO, just use the certificate that I provided in step 6.

    Hi Christopher! You havent come across a new cert for SP1 UR2 yet have you?

  2. Actually the cert changed during one of the UR rollups. I had the same on an 2012 SP1 UR3 machine. It contains a cert with expiration date 25 april 2014 now. Will post the updated version of the registry file to my blog and let Christopher know the link here.
