Multiple clients showing as NOT INSTALLED in SCCM

  • Multiple clients showing as NOT INSTALLED in SCCM

    Posted by Roddy Gelberty on 28 September 2020 at 1:15 pm

    After updating my Operating System image recently most of the newly built devices are showing with a “NOT INSTALLED” status. Any ideas?

    • I’ve already done the following.
    • Reinstalled the SCCM client.
    • Checked the boundaries.
    • Tried the old Windows Image and it works well.

    Appreciate your help.

    Try this. Let me know if it works.

    stop-service ccmexec -Confirm:$true -Force
    Move-Item -Path "$($env:SystemDrive)\windows\smsconf.ini" -Destination  "$($env:SystemDrive)\windows\smsconf.ini.old"
    get-childitem cert:/localmachine/sms -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue| remove-item -Force -Confirm:$true
    start-service ccmexec -Confirm:$true

    Miracle worker. That script worked perfectly. Creating a Group Policy start-up script to run the script on affected computers.
    As always you folks at OSD365 are super helpful.

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
