    Angry SCCM 2012 SMS Provider

    Hi all,

    We use SCCM 2012 to manage endpoint protection and deploy a few bits of software. I did some windows updates the other day and since then it seems to be having a problem with the SMS provider. It wont allow the client to connect to the database. I've tried loads of things, but the final thing I found was to delete the namespace SMS from WMI, and then reinstall the SMS provider. This worked perfectly.

    The problem is, every morning when I come in to check the AV status on the machines, the SMS provider has failed again. And I have to repeat the process.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like this update also broke my sccm pxe too update installed on 13/12/12

    Microsoft Update KB2506143 (Windows Management Framework 3.0) that was released by Microsoft on 12/12/2012

    Spent many hours trying to fix it and may have to call MS and try and use one of my EES/ Technet Direct calls to hopefully fix it!

    I'm so angry!!!

    Glad it isnt just me. Does removing the patch fix the issue?

    You dont need to remove the patch:

    Theres a reg hack (Configuration Manager Management Points collocated with clients fail after installing Windows Management Framework 3.0 and running Client Health Evaluation)

    Or - SP1 is now on MSDN/Technet which fixes the WMF 3.0 issue

    I have already removed the patch then tried the registry fix HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM\CcmEval\NotifyOnly from FALSE to TRUE

    This SP1 it is RTM isnt it so is it supported will it have to be removed when its fully released. I may have to take the plunge I dont think it could make things any worse?!!!!!

    This is the thread I had yesterday when I was having issues: SCCM 2012 RTM - Various Client errors
    The workaround fixed the issue - only for SP1 to be released a few hours later

    And yes Sp1 is now "RTM" (Or Final) so its fully supported by MS
    You shouldn't need to remove anything for it (The Beta SP1 is a different matter altogether which is why I never installed it)

    I've reinstalled the SMS provider by deleting the WMI namespace for SMS, it works for a day then breaks again.

    When will SP1 be properly released?

    Now if you are on TechNet or MSDN - not sure about everyone else.
    If you have the workaround ini place then you shoudl, be fine till it is released to the general public.

    On the server, run wbemtest, click connect. In namespace type root. Press enum classes. Select recursive, press ok.

    Look for _NAMESPACE ( System class), double click it. Press instances on the right hand side. Look for Namespace.Name="sms" and delete it.

    On the server, in the start menu, look for configuration manager setup. There should be an option for maintenance. Then another option for SMS provider. In the box type the name of the server, it will show a warning about already existing, press yes. Let it run.
