Unable to Start SCCM ConfigMgr CB Setup Installation Invalid object name SetupInfo Configuration Manager? I stumbled across one issue where I can’t even proceed to the 2nd page of the SCCM / ConfigMgr Current Branch (CB) installation wizard.
Moreover it was giving me SQL related error/s (ConfigMgrSetupWizard Error: 1 : Exception message: [Invalid object name ‘SetupInfo’.], Exception details: [System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): Invalid object name ‘SetupInfo’.) in “ConfigMgrSetupWizard.log”.
Introduction – Unable to Start SCCM ConfigMgr CB Setup Installation Invalid object
I tried restarting the server without any luck. Initially, when I tried to install the SCCM CB primary server, I got a Database creation error (*** [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]Cannot create file ‘P:\DBSQL\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\CM_AN1.mdf’ because it already exists.) and I was giving a retry.
However, the SCCM CB installation wizard was not allowed to proceed to the second page. Now I’m stuck. I didn’t find any installation traces in “Control Panel – Add Remove Programs”. So the only thing left was the registry key.
I found setup had created SMS keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS. I exported those keys (just in case) and then deleted them. I tried to run the SCCM CB setup again. It worked like a champ!

Solution – Unable to Start SCCM ConfigMgr CB Setup Installation Invalid object
Details of SCCM CB SQL DB creation errors mentioned above:- we’ve re-created the DataFiles and Transaction log files as per the best practices with the recommended size. There were multiple data files and transaction log files as per the vCPU or CPU count of the SCCM CB server.
For testing, I detached the created DB base along with files for testing and forgot to attach the SQL DB (before running the SCCM CB setup wizard). That was the root cause for the following error.
*** CREATE DATABASE [CM_AN1] ON ( NAME=CM_AN1,FILENAME='P:\DBSQL\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\CM_AN1.mdf') LOG ON ( NAME=CM_GW1_log,FILENAME='G:\DBSQL\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\CM_GW1_log.ldf') *** [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]Cannot create file 'F:\DBSQL\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\CM_GW1.mdf' because it already exists.
