I’ve been using Tao’s ConfigMgr 2012 (R2) Client MP since he released it and recently we’ve noticed that a lot of alerts were logged for SMS Agent service not running and after half an hour or less being resolved automatically. Looking in SCOM for the closed looked like this:
What I’ve noticed that the alert was logged only for 3 servers and the alerts were repeating every 5 hours for every particular server.
Logging into the noisy alerts and looking in the SCCM agent logs I could see agent installing was causing this. So the obvious issue is that the SCCM client was re-installing itself every 5 hours roughly for these servers.
Over Internet I’ve stumbled on this forum post:
As of time of this writing there is no comment marked as answer but the guy who opened the thread last commented:
“I noticed in my ccmsetup.log that it was trying to install, and felt it needed to UNINSTALL before installing, so I have actually uninstalled (ccmsetup /uninstall) and then manually installed. I am monitoring now to see if it has broken its cycle.”
So I’ve followed his guidance:
- Uninstalled the SCCM client – C:\Windows\CCMSetup\ccmsetup.exe /uninstall
Installed SCCM 2012 R2 CU2 as this is the latest version in my environment – Msiexec.exe /update configmgr2012ac-r2-kb2938441-x64.msp
After these steps seems the issue is fixed at least for now.
