CcmSetObjectSecurityInit Error when installing SCCM client on Server 2008

Hi All,

I recently had an issue with the SCCM client not installing on a 2008 server with IIS installed.

Within the client.msi.log I found the following error:

Error 25001. Setup failed due to unexpected circumstances
The error code is 80004005

Action ended 8:59:25: CcmSetObjectSecurityInit. Return value 3.

After days of searching I found this blog and changed the permissions on the Anonymous Authentication in IIS to the local administrator account. Installed the SCCM client and then changed it back.

I hope this saves you some time.



  1. Dude. After trying stuff for over an hour I came across your blog. You're the man!

  2. I had a client complaining about not received SCCM software pushes. Took me a couple weeks before I found your blog. Thank you for posting this information!

  3. Great work. Thank you for the information.
