Error code by definition is just a generic windows installer MSIexec fatal error code. Yesterday I was seeing this for a software package deployment. The interesting part of this was this was an application that was packaged for us by a third party vendor a vendor that will remain nameless, but has created some poor packages for us in the past that allows me to write up blog posts like this explaining the solution to their packaging issuesand the application was actually installing on some machines but not all.
So it was a very peculiar push that piqued my interest. After looking at the advertisement report, I noticed that most of the successful installs were from Windows 7 machines. The failures were coming from Windows XP. So that pointed me to setup a test XP machine and test the push on that platform.
Next I looked at the package and how it was created in SCCM I personally didn't set this up or work with the vendor on packaging it, so this was all new to me. I noticed that the install program was using a transform that the vendor had created as well as a requiring ISScript8 be run first before installing.
In my case, we were running this application with administrative rights and silently via SCCM. When a local administrator was logged on during runtime, the application would install fine. It would also install fine if no one was logged on. However if a user was logged on without admin rights, we'd get the error. To do this, follow the following steps:. What I had selected was The interactive user. So by changing both InstallShield InstallDriver identities to The Launching User I was able to run the application successfully as the user which was a low rights account.
So I had the problem solved, but I needed a way to do this programatically. The good news is that these options are all stored in the registry! Note that if you only have one InstallDriver, you can remove the second path and the second deletevalue command. Once you've made the file, put it in the packagesource folder and make a new SCCM program using cscript nameofscript. I have extended your script to automate discovery of the AppID, and permit local or remote fixes.
This sounds like the same problem I am having. The installer has a prerequisite of isscript, so i have my program set to always run isscript On my test machine i can install the program from command line using msiexec.The same program we have deployed on some other machines and there its get successfully installed and giving success status message. First Error Message in Status message:.
Message ID: The program was able to be executed but the system was restarted unexpectedly before the program could be completed or before status could be recorded. No installation status MIF was found after the system restarted. Possible cause: The program performs a restart of the client computer when it completes, but the 'After running' setting in the program's properties is not set to Program restarts computer, or the client machine was restarted while the program was running.
Solution: Verify the above. If the program does a restart when it completes, even if it only requires a restart in some cases, modify the program's properties and set 'After running' to 'Program restarts computer'.
Second Error Message in Status message:. Systems Management Server SMS has stopped monitoring the program, and is unable to determine the status of the program. SMS will not automatically attempt to run this program again. Possible causes: The program might have taken longer to run than expected, or the program might have experienced problems while running.
Possible solution: Make sure the maximum allowed run time specified for the program allows enough time for the program to finish running.
SCCM: Software Distribution Fails with Error Code 1603 in Execmgr.log
If the program requires user input, ensure the program properties allow the user to interact with the program. A couple of possibilities. Since you have "nomad" in the name of the program, are you using 1e nomad to deploy this application? It's possible that those messageids mean something under nomad-context, more so that "normal" not nomad context during application deployment.
Have you checked with 1e about those errors? Just to eliminate that as a possibility? Otherwise, in both cases the messages "sound like" during installation the ConfigMgr client lost, possible for a few seconds, the ability to communicate and keep track of that advertisement. I've seen that before when installing things that interfere with network communications, like iPass --I know I saw similar messages there; because ipass interrupted network communications.
Systems Management Server Sign in to vote.In Configuration Manager, status messages are the universal means for components to communicate information about their health to the Configuration Manager administrator. The Configuration Manager Status System is a fully-distributed, enterprise-wide aggregation and summarization system for status messages.
Status messages flow from components to the Configuration Manager site servers and up the Configuration Manager site hierarchy. The administrator configures how Configuration Manager processes the status messages at each site server in the hierarchy.
This processing can include storing the status messages in a SQL database, replicating the messages to the parent Configuration Manager site, reporting the messages as Windows Events on the site server, and exporting the messages to another eventing or alerting application.
Certain kinds of status messages are automatically processed by Summarizer components that are running on the site servers. The Summarizers produce high-level data about the raw flows of status messages. Administrators monitor this data in the Configuration Manager console. Status messages are similar to Windows events; they have a severity, ID, and description. They also support message insertion strings and named attribute values.
This allows user-defined messages to be reported through the site. Each Configuration Manager component has a set of predefined status messages assigned to it. It is important that the context in which an application reports a predefined status message matches exactly the purpose of the Configuration Manager component status message.
Otherwise, the integrity of the site might be affected by Configuration Manager misinterpreting the meaning of the status message. Along with the message type, insertion strings and attributes can be supplied.
The text that is provided as the insertion string, when creating the status message, is the text seen in the user interface. This makes using generic messages simple, but it does not allow for localization. DLL is a Win32 dynamic link library that is available on clients. It cannot be easily be used by VBScript. Using the management point interfaces, you can raise status messages that are defined by XML from client computers.
The management point interfaces cannot be used by VBScript. Using the management point interface is recommended for raising status messages on client computers that are not running a Windows operating system. You may also leave feedback directly on GitHub.By targeting the SCCM client installation error codes, you will have a better idea of what is happening during client installation.
The error codes is not an exact science, they can defer depending on the situation. There are other logs, on which the SCCM client installation relates. Some errors have been added based on our personal experiences. You can also check the list of client commands listas an additional help for troubleshooting your SCCM clients.
Knowing the client installation status from reports, reduces the number of devices without SCCM client installed in your IT infrastructure.

Explore More Content.Status messages, by contrast, work to help administrators track the workflow of data through various Configuration Manager components. There's no equivalent viewer for state messages.
State messages contain concise information about conditions in-place on the client. The state messaging system is used by specific components of Configuration Manager, such as software updates, desired configuration management, and network access protection. The following diagram provides a good description of how the state messaging system works. The green box represents the state messaging system.
The components inside the box are those that feed information to the system. In the diagram, the client installation piece is shown separately for clarity. During the client installation, the management point is located and targeted for state messages. For everything else, traffic goes directly to the management point. State messages that arrive at the management point are processed into.
Then, they are processed into the database to complete the workflow. We have to make sure that verbose logging is enabled for the client, management point, and state messaging components on the site server.
To set verbose or debug logging on a System Center Configuration Manager client or management point, edit or create the following registry entries:. However, not much useful data can be obtained directly from the tracing. Instead, we will examine the Updatesdeployment. Before we examine log code examples, we have to understand the state message format. Note The following chart includes the, and series Topic Type codes.
SCCM Package distribution
The following example aligns and compares the Updatesdeployment. This clearly indicates that the two logs are referring to the same state message. The TopicType is shown in light blue text. The following is an actual example of how state messaging data makes its way to the management point and is processed to the database.
Every state message has a unique serial number, similar to the hardware inventory. In this manner, the site server can keep track of whether it's missing any state messages from the system.
This is important because missing state messages may cause incomplete or inaccurate state reporting. We can resend the data to the management point, and track its progress by using the following resync scripts. This script can be found on the web in various locations.
Notice that the script may fail if you try to run it yourself. The default version of cscript is the bit version and generally works fine with any VBScript. However, in this case, the call that's being made requires the bit version of cscript that you must run out of the syswow64 folder.
When the next state message polling cycle occurs, all state messages are sent to the management point. The state message information should resemble the following:. Note This example is truncated to a single state message because of the size of the XML file.
Although the Statemessage. There's actually more that goes on behind the scenes at this point.Selecting a language below will dynamically change the complete page content to that language.
