SCCM 2012 R2 Upgrade

Hi I was running SCCM 2012 SP1 with the one primary site and a distribution point and a management point in a non-trusted forest. I have upgraded the primary site to R2, but the upgrade of the DP and MP in non-trusted forest is failing with the following errors. The re install keeps failing.

I have tried-
1. To add the server account from the second forest to the group "SMS_SiteSystemToSiteServerConnection_MP_DPC" but unable to do as it is from another forrest
2. Check the firewall
3. Added a entry in the host file to resolve the FQDN

Errors in order-

1. Site Component Manager failed to add machine account SV-MP-SCCM.[DOMAIN NAME] to the user group SMS_SiteSystemToSiteServerConnection_MP_DPC, this must be done manually.

2. Site Component Manager failed to install this component, because the Microsoft Installer File for this component (MP.msi) could not install.

3. Site Component Manager failed to reinstall this component on this site system.

Solution: Review the previous status messages to determine the exact reason for the failure. Site Component Manager will automatically retry the reinstallation in 60 minutes. To force Site Component Manager to immediately retry the reinstallation, stop and restart Site Component Manager using the Configuration Manager Service Manager.

Please help. Thank you.

Is the Primary Site Server local Administrator on the remote MP and DP Server?
Is there a trust between the Forests? You should be able to add the MP's Machine Account to the specific SCCM group

Thank you for your reply. There is no trust between the forests. So no I can't add the Primary site server to the local admin group on the DP/MP.

For those who might be interested I have fixed the issue. I don't have an explanation on how the fix worked.

After trying several different things including,
1. Fiddling with Forrest discovery
2. Changing the install account for the MP/DP

I managed to fix it by installing a new role on the MP/DP server. I installed the USMT role just to see if that would give the install process a kick in the gut and it worked. The roles are properly installed now. No errors. Thank you.
