During the scheduled SCCM CB uplift we have observed the following issue: after the uplift SCCM Administration console started to crash on very specific property pages, i.e. Windows Updates client settings or scheduling regular OS image file servicing. Before the crash the console was giving us .NET errors saying that specific properties of WMI objects were not found.
The specifics of our environment is that we have SMS Provider installed on two redundant Management Point role servers and no SMS provider on the site server. Turns out that during the uplift SCCM does not update the smsprov.mof file on standalone SMS Providers.
The workaround is as follows:
- Verify whether or not <SCCM install dir>\bin\x64\smsprov.mof file is the same on the primary site server and on every standalone SMS provider server
- If and most likely not, replace smsprov.mof file on standalone SMS provider servers with the newer smsprov.mof found on the Primary Site Server.
- Compile smsprov.mof on each SMS Provider server with the command mofcomp smsprov.mof.
