Registering the data warehouse is the first thing to be done once you install your SCSM Console, but facing an error during the registration process would cause a headache to you especially, there are no errors logged in the event log.
However, the first thing you would think about when you are using any Microsoft Product GUI, is that it turns into Powershell, and it is the reason for that error.
The DW registration wizard uses Powershell cmdlet to trigger that task, but since the Powershell execution policy prevents the execution of registration cmdlet, that results in that error.
In order to solve that issue, you have to follow the following steps:
- Open Powershell on the server from which you are trying to register the DW.
- Make sure you run it as Administrator
- Run the following cmdlet “Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned“.
- Restart the Service Manager Console.
