Creating Secure Store Application... Sometimes fails, sometimes works

Feb 24, 2013 at 4:09 PM
Hi
Still having some issue getting a remote offline install of 2010 working on a 4 server farm. One of the servers always seems to suffer from an error just after the Visio graphic service has been started. Running 98112.

Its as if it sometimes doesnt think it exists and tries to create it again. When the script completes the part "Creating secure store application..." isnt hit and it goes straight to "Updating Secure Store Group Credential Mapping..."

I ran the install 3 times (1st was clean, 2nd and 3rd were on top of 1st attempt) and each time a I got different servers failing at this stage. The ID below is always the same.
Visio Graphics Service already created.
 - Setting unattended account credentials...
 - Creating Secure Store Target Application c7921c05-1471-41dd-a738-11898d08ff3a-VisioUnattendedAccount...
 - Creating Secure Store Application...
The application already exists (application id: c7921c05-1471-41dd-a738-11898d08ff3a-VisioUnattendedAccount).
