ConfigMgr and Microsoft Store for Business Sync Fails

I ran into a odd problem when trying to setup the connection between Configuration Manager and the Microsoft Store for Business. I completed all steps mentioned at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/apps/deploy-use/manage-apps-from-the-windows-store-for-business, however the sync would fail. In the WsfbSyncWorker.log I found this error: System.IO.IOException: This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.

SCSM: Include Affected/Assigned To User of Parent Work Item in Notifications

If you have ever wanted to include data properties from parent work items in your Service Manager activity notifications, you may have come across this blog: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/servicemanager/2012/04/03/using-data-properties-from-the-parent-work-items-in-activity-email-templates/.

This information is great as long as you want to include properties from the Work Item class. However, if you want to include the Affected User or Assigned To User in these e-mails, this gets more complicated as this cannot be generated using the UI. Read moreRead more

Software Updates Fail to Detect After Site Recovery

I recently ran into a problem where my Software Update point stopped working after performing a Site Recovery of my System Center Configuration Manager Site Server. In my scenario, I was performing a Site Recovery in order to upgrade my OS from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2 to SQL 2014 SP1. After the upgrade was completed, all post-recovery steps were done, and all other functions were validated; I found my Software Updates were still not working. When checking Compliance on all updates, they simply reported back “Compliance Unknown”. Read moreRead more

Clear SCCM Cache by Deploying a Package

A while back, I wrote a simple PowerShell script that will clear the cache on a SCCM client machine (I will post this script for your reference at the end of this blog).

I mostly used this script during a large Task Sequences (ie. during a build and capture task sequence that installs a lot of software), since the cache would fill completely and then fail the Task Sequences (it appears that SCCM will not override any items in cache during the task sequence). This never presented an issue since I always ran the script directly from the Distribution Point.

Alert Widget Static Column Width

Update 2/10: This issue appears to be fixed in 2012 R2 UR5.

A while back I ran into an issue with creating some dashboards for SCOM.  Specifically, the issue came along when working with the Alert Widget.  I ran into the issue where columns in the Alert Widget would get very wide and one column could fill up an entire screen, rending the rest of the view essentially useless.  This is due to the “Auto” width feature in the widget.  While it is great to have Auto as an option, it isn’t always appropriate for all columns.

Service Manager 2012 SP1 CU2 Install Error

I ran into an issue when attempting to install CU2 for Service Manager 2012 SP1.  I wanted to share the error and solution in case anyone else came across the problem.  In my scenario, I was able to successfully update all Console, my Data Warehouse Management Server, and my Self-Service Portal servers, without issue.  However, on my Primary Management server the update failed and provided the following error:

An error occurred while executing custom action: “_Installhealthserviceperfcountersforpatching”
