Hi to all,

Great news, a new Cumulative Update 1 for the System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager clients for UNIX and Linux is available !!!

Issues that are fixed by the CU1

UNIX and Linux clients

  • In some cases, Linux clients may not initialize while the Scxcm.log file grows quickly. Additionally, the following warning message is logged in the /var/opt/microsoft/scxcm.log file:
  • datetime Warning [scx.client.agents.InventoryAgentState:338:27298:140010010693376] Hardware Inventory endpoint Notify gained the policy lock, but the system is not yet ready. Retrying. LinuxUNIXClient 01.01.1601 00:00:00 2666765960 (0×9EF39E88)
  • After a client upgrade, the UNIX or Linux client does not send the new client version number to the server.
  • When you run the ccmexec –v command, a version number is displayed that is inconsistent with the client version number that is reported to the server.
  • The Universal Linux client does not install on Linux computers that use OpenSSL versions greater than 1.0.0 if the library file does not exist. Additionally, you receive the following error message from the installation script
  • Checking Prerequisites…
    Running preinstall validator
    /tmp/ccm/preinstallvalidator: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Pre-Install validator failed. Please check the version of OpenSSL with CM installation requirements.
  • The client does not install on Linux computers that have an Athlon kernel.
  • In some cases, the client may not install on AIX-based computers. Additionally, you receive the following error message from the installation script:
  • Registering Providers…

  • When the server sends a policy resync command to the UNIX or Linux client, the client may stop sending inventory to the server or stop processing software distribution. Additionally, the following warning message is logged in the /var/opt/microsoft/scxcm.log file
  • Info [scx.client.scheduler.IScheduledTrigger:256:51452:140230841011968] Loaded a one-shot trigger that has already completed. Trigger will not be fired again.

Managing System Center Configuration Manager clients in a workgroup !!!

Commentaires fermés mars 1st, 2010


When managing SMS or SCCM clients that are in a workgroup, clients will need access to a WINS server the contains the proper entries for the SMS/SCCM site systems.  If a WINS is not available, as an alternative you can edit the LMHOSTS and HOSTS files on each client to allow for name resolution.


Add the SMS information to an LMHOSTS file, which you can copy to each client:

<IP Address> Siteserver             #PRE
<IP Address> « SMS_SLP        \0×1A » #PRE
<IP Address> « SMS_MP         \0×1A » #PRE
<IP Address> « SMS_NLB        \0×1A » #PRE (Only needed if the MP is load balanced)
# « 12345678901234567890″

Note: There must be 20 characters between the quotation marks for each entry.  The last line (# « 12345678901234567890″) is there to help make sure of that requirement and you can eliminate it in your actual LMHOSTS file.

If your clients need to assign to a secondary site, replace the SMS_MP with the following:

<IP Address of Secondary Site MP> « SMS_XXX        \0×1A » #PRE (XXX replace with site code)
# « 12345678901234567890″

HOSTS file:

Add the SMS information to an HOSTS file, which you can copy to each client.

<IP Address> siteserver.your.domain
<IP Address> MPservername.your.domain

Both the LMHOSTS and the HOSTS file can be found in the \windows\system32\drivers\etc directory.  LMHOSTS will be named LMHOSTS.sam so after editing the file you will need to remove the .sam extension.

Once that is completed, open a command prompt and run the following command:

nbtstat -R

This will load the LMHOSTS file.

Thanks a lot to Ellis George
