I have installed SP1 for SharePoint 2010. After installation I am running PSCONFIG to complete the installation. It fails with this error message:
Unable to create a Service Connection Point in the current Active Directory domain.
According to some blogs this can be fixed by giving the executing user access to a specific AD container 'Microsoft SharePoint Products'.
Now to the question: I do not have any access to the AD at all. Is there a way to complete the SP1 installation without having access to that AD container?
Update: I have talked to the AD guys and it seems that no one changed anything wrt. the System container with the recent year. There is no 'Microsoft SharePoint Products' container under the 'System' container. So it seems that the AD tracking function is being introduced with SP1 (please correct me if I am wrong). Also there is little hope to get 'Create Service Connection Point objects' rights on the required AD container which leaves me with a partially patched system.
