I am trying to add a second SCOM Management server, but I keep getting the error shown in the screenshot.
I have reinstalled the server , rebooted the server, but still keep getting the same error.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

What is the OS? What version of SQL? Does the first management server communicate properly?

OS I am adding the second Management Server is Windows 2012 R2
SQL 2012 is installed  on the First Management Server
Yes , it communicates properly with the first Management Server, as you can see on the screenshot , the drop down box shows the operationsManager Database from the  first Management Server (SQL server).

The database is on the first management server??? Umm... okay. Double check required permissions for starters. The account installing the additional server needs to be a DBAdmin, and if SQL was installed on the some server as the first management server, it may be a local service account this breaking remote servers. It could also be a firewall issue, as there are several ports required (the database name showing up isn't sufficient to guarantee good communications.)  If the SQL server were savage, you'd have nailed down potential firewall issues with the first install. But with them colocated, the firewall would not have interrupted the first setup.

There are many reasons not to colocate those two particular roles, and even the most basic test lab documentation has them separated (for good reason!) You've probably made life very difficult for yourself for awhile.

The same account I used to install the first MS , I am using with second MS.
As long as the Database name showed up in the drop down box, means permissions are OK...

I will try it again, and post the event logs

"As long as the Database name showed up in the drop down box, means permissions are OK"

That is absolutely NOT true. The permissions to query an instance for its list of databases are not the same as for writing to a database itself. They can (and often are) different.

Odd that there are references to System Center Essentials in there. You are running setup from the right media? And thus server hasn't had other system center products installed on it before?

I installed windows server 2012 R2, there is no other application installed on it.
I have an extracted SCOM iso in another computer, copied the extracted files to flash drive and plugged the flush drive to this server..

Well, beyond what I've already suggested, I have no other ideas.

What is you suggestion ? I know you mentioned permissions, but as I said I am using the same account as the one I have installed and configured the first Management Server.

in the log file I have posted above I see something about .Net Framework...Cannot tell why

The problem was that in the first Management Server, I have installed SCOM,SCCM,SQL2012 all in one server...I removed SCCM and re-installed clean SQL2012. Now I can add the second Management server with no issue.

Thank you for contribution!!!
