There is a problem with Client Push installation in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1. One of the prerequisites, MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup.msi, which comes during the ccmsetup installation is digitally signed and the signature expired on 10-01-2012. Therefore Client Installation cannot be performed!
Following error will appear in the ccmsetup.log:
Couldn’t verify ‘C:\Windows\ccmsetup\MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup.msi’ authenticode signature. Return code 0x800b0101
Microsoft has released an update for this issue. Problem is that when you have your current images depending on SCCM for updates this will be a catch-22 situation!
Client will not install and updates will not be pushed to the clients…
You can off-line service your image with the following update, or use DSIM!
Windows XP, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2:
(Microsoft Security Advisory: Compatibility issues affecting signed Microsoft binaries)
Windows 8, Server 2012:
(Windows 8 Client and Windows Server 2012 General Availability Cumulative Update)
With this update installed you will be able to install your SCCM 2012 Clients again.
Let’s see if Microsoft will release an update for SCCM soon…
Well Microsoft was quick 😉
