Microsoft TMG installation error “Configuration storage server cannot be installed because the port required for installation (2171) is currently being used.”

Yesterday I was trying to install Microsoft TMG 2010 but unfortunately my server hung halfway through. After rebooting server I re ran setup and this error came up.

“Configuration storage server cannot be installed because the port required for installation (2171) is currently being used.”

Resolution:
I went to the Services applet and stopped ISASTGCTRL service then re ran the TMG setup and error disappeared.

    After i did like what u told. I started to have a new problem. It say Setup failed to install ADAM.(0x80074e27)

      Got the same error. You need to run : “C:\WINDOWS\ADAM\adamuninstall.exe” /i:ISASTGCTRL

      This will uninstall the service and will allow a proper reinstallation of ForeFront TMG 2010
      Important note : The service must be started to allow uninstallation. You need to restart the service.

      Hope this will help.

    What a mess,
    I also had to redo the initial installation of ISA TMG and received one error after another.

    I spent a few hours researching and decided to trash the server, reload fresh and install ISA TMG from scratch.

    Fortunately, we didn’t have any valuable applications or data on this particular server.

    Much better option is to run : “C:\WINDOWS\ADAM\adamuninstall.exe” /i:ISASTGCTRL

    This will uninstall the service and will allow a proper reinstallation of ForeFront TMG 2010

    I ended up uninstalling every SQL instance that was listed in Add/Remove Programs. This seemed to work as well. Perhaps it’s “six of one…” But thanks to everyone who supplied help!
