I am setting up a new HMC network and am now attempting to get the MPS installed. I was logged into the server as the local administrator and ran DeploymentTool.msi
which creates the ConfigShare & MSIShare folders and whatever else it does.
Realizing that I was logged in as the local admin and thinking that the install had to be done under a domain admin account I uninstalled the DeploymentTool and deleted the shares.
Upon logging in as a domain admin and running DeploymentTool.msi again I was unable to enter the data for ConfigShare and MSIShare. All of the fields on the page were greyed out. I rebooted, checked the
registry, checked system shares and found no references to the DeploymentTool.
If I try to run DeploymentTool.msi on any other server in that domain the result is always that the fields on that page are grayed out.
Running the msi on a workstation or server in an untouched domain gives editable fields. Is there something set in AD that triggers this behavior that needs to be deleted? If so where is it located?

I've had the same problem
If you login to your AD01 system and enable "advanced features" by going to View > advanced features
You should see a "System" folder, and in that folder there is a item called "MPS server config entity" which holds the settings for the MPS deployment tool etc.
If you delete that one + the domain accounts MPS creates you can run a clean install.

That did it.
