I am not sure how many would have noticed this error message. Just thought of sharing this with you all.
I installed Management Reporter 2012 CU7 on my machine yesterday night for some testing. I had not done this outside a network (being physically away from a domain) before, so never expected an error. But following error message popped up:
My machine is already part of a domain. So above message was a bit confusing. Later I realised that I MUST be connected to my domain when the configuration process is run.
Which means the machine on which you are installing Management Reporter Server component CANNOT be physically outside the domain (even though it is already added to one) when you configure it.
This morning I restarted the configuration process and it’s done without issues. Interesting.
