SCCM 2012 Setup Error: Failed to create SQL Server certificate on server

If you get the error “Failed to create SQL Server certificate on server” while SCCM 2012 Setup is trying to create the Certificate you might have used a build in account to run the SQL Server Service.
To resolve this, create a Domain Account for the SQL Server Service, add it to the SQL Servers local Administrators group and assign it to the Service using the SQL Server Configuration Manager.
