SCCM 1606 SQL Server Views Documentation

leave a comment »


If you are working on SCCM custom reports, you may have wished that there should be a reference out that you could use as reference to navigate through the countless database views available in SQL Server for SCCM. There is in fact such a reference, published by Microsoft last November 2016

Download the SCCM ConfigMgr SQL Views reference from here: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/SCCM-Configmgr-2012-R2-SQL-5fefdd3b

SCCM User State Migration: Error 0x0004005 during User State Restore

leave a comment »


Scenario

  • In SCCM Build 1606, you intend a side-by-side migration with User State Migration.
  • You execute your Capture User State Task Sequence on the SOURCE machine
  • You build your TARGET Machine
  • You create a Computer Association between your SOURCE and TARGET machines in Configuration Manager Console > Asset and Compliance > User State Migration. Now you have two computer associations using the same Source Computer:
    • the one with Migration Type = In-place and Destination Computer is itself,
    • another with Migration Type = Side-by-side and Destination Computer is your intended TARGET machine (see picture below).

Example of creating a Computer Association after User State Capture. I performed a User State Capture on MININT-8AA13J1, resulting in the association with In-place Migration Type. Then I created an association between MININT-8AA13J1 and OSDTEST03.  When I performed the User State Restore on OSDTEST03, it resulted in a 0x0004005 error.

 

  • You execute your Restore User State Task Sequence on the TARGET machine and get the following error.

Task Sequence: Restore User State has failed with the error code (0x00004005). Please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.

Resolution

You need to create your Computer Association between the two computers before you perform the user state capture on the SOURCE machine.

Sorry guys, not too many screenshots here. However, I tried it in my lab and it works. Leave a comment if this writeup solved your problem.

ConfigMgr Automatic Deployment Rule Fails with Error Code 1326 if Source WSUS is not a Domain Member

leave a comment »


Behavior

ConfigMgr infrastructure uses a WSUS server in the DMZ which is not a member of the domain, as shown in the figure below:

SCCM ADR WSUS DMZ

If you use Automatic Deployment Rule, the sync fails with the following:

  • Error code 0X87D20417 in the SCCM Console
  •  “Failed to download the update from UNC content source. Error = 1326” in ruleengine.log.
Console Error annotate

Configuration Manager Console Automatic Deployment Rules showing error code 0X87D20417

 

Error 1326 Bigger

ruleengine.log showing error 1326

Meanwhile, patch metadata is successfully transferred over to ConfigMgr when you sync software updates. Manual patch synchronization by downloading to the Deployment Package is also successful

Cause

The top-level ConfigMgr server attempts to access the shared WsusContent folder in your DMZ WSUS using the computer account of your Primary Site Serveror CAS, and fails because it is denied access. On your DMZ WSUS, you cannot grant access to the CAS or Primary Site Server or make them a member of any local group.

Resolution

You can choose from one of the following options if you intend to use Automatic Deployment Rules

  1. 1. Copy the contents of \\dmz_wsus\WsusContent to a shared location which is accessible to your top-level ConfigMgr server (CAS or Primary Site Server), and sync the ADR from that location
  2. Make the DMZ WSUS server a member of the domain and ensure that the top-level Site Server (CAS or Primary Site Server) is a member either of the local Administrators group or the WSUS Administrators group.

Remember, this is only an issue if you use ADR. I haven’t done testing on a normal non user-initiated SCCM update sync. You might want to give me feedback if this error shows up on non user-initiated update sync.

Products

  • System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
