CU4 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 and System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1 released by Microsoft

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3195483

Issues that are fixed

Mobile device management

1. Synchronization of the Exchange Connector fails, and errors that resemble the following are logged in the EasDisc.log file:

ERROR: [MANAGED] Exception: An item with the same key has already been added.
ERROR: Failed to check status of discovery thread of managed COM. error = The parameter is incorrect.
INFO: Total number of devices discovered 0

This issue occurs in environments when the same account name exists across multiple domains. For example, user1@contoso.com and user1@domain2.contoso.com.

Site Systems

1. The SMS Executive service stops unexpectedly when the SMS_Despooler component is trying to delete a file. Errors that resemble the following are recorded in the Despool.log file on the site server:

::DeleteFileW failed for D:\SCCMContentLib\FileLib\1E69\{guid}.SIG
RemoveFile failed; 0x80070002
CFileLibrary::AddFile failed; 0x80070002
CContentBundle::ExtractContentBundle failed; 0x80070002
~Failed to extract contents to the content library. 0x80070002
~Failed to extract package contents from C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT CONFIGURATION MANAGER\INBOXES\DESPOOLR.BOX\RECEIVE\PKG12345.TRY. Error = 2

After this error sequence is recorded, the SMS Executive service may stop.

2. The SMS Executive service stops unexpectedly when it processes certificate data. When this occurs, the last entry in the certmgr.log file contains entries that resemble the following:

RetrievePfxData – WHERE UserItemKey={itemkey} and IsTombstoned=0

3. The Delete Aged Status Messages maintenance task incorrectly removes records from the Update_ComplianceStatus table. This results in inaccurate status reporting for updates older than 6 months.

4. CPU usage on the SQL server for a given site may spike under load from many user policy requests in a short period.

Administrator Console

1. The Available software updates count in the Schedule Updates Wizard shows an incorrect count of updates for Windows 10-based client images.

Operating System Deployment

1. 3151994 The SMSTSRebootDelay variable doesn’t work for multiple restarts in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

2. The Task Sequence execution engine times out in two minutes, instead of running up to a defined maximum.

3. 3183710 The Install Application task does not use content from the pre-staged media in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

Non-windows clients

1. 3155424 Mac inventory data isn’t processed in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

Software distribution and content management

1. Software distribution content is not extracted to a secondary drive when the primary drive of a distribution point has insufficient free space. Errors that resemble the following are recorded in the despool.log on the site server:

Extracting content ABC00001.1
::DeleteFileW failed for H:\SCCMContentLib\FileLib\…
RemoveFile failed; 0x80070002
CFileLibrary::AddFile failed; 0x80070002
CContentBundle::ExtractContentBundle failed; 0x80070002
~Failed to extract contents to the content library. 0x80070002
~Failed to extract package contents from E:\SCCM\INBOXES\DESPOOLR.BOX\RECEIVE\{PKG_File}. Error = 2

2. All content distribution can stall if one distribution point is in a problem state. For example, if the IIS Admin Service (inetinfo.exe) is hanging on one distribution point, all other distribution points will wait for the problematic distribution point to come back online. A message pattern resembling the following is logged in the distmgr.log file on the site server, repeating approximately every two minutes:

There are still 1 DP threads active for package ABC00139, waiting for them to complete. SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER 12608 (0x3140)
There are still 1 DP threads active for package PRI00290, waiting for them to complete. SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER 14128 (0x3730)
There are still 1 DP threads active for package ABC0013B, waiting for them to complete. SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER 8348 (0x209C)
There are still 2 DP threads active for package ABC000C4, waiting for them to complete.

3. Redistributing a package to a remote distribution point at a secondary site results in all distribution points for that site receiving the package. This issue occurs when the secondary site was recovered, and the original database was lost.

4. If the Configuration Manager Content Library (SCCMContentLib) spans multiple drives and one of those drives is full, content distribution may fail. Errors that resemble the following are recorded in the distmgr.log file:

~Use drive D for storing the compressed package.
CContentBundle::AddContentDefinitionItems failed; 0x80070003
CDistributionManager::AddContentToBundle failed; 0x80070003
CDistributionManager::CreatePackageBundle failed; 0x80070003
~Error creating package bundle to send copy of package ABC000A2 to site PRI.
STATMSG: ID=2333 SEV=I LEV=M SOURCE=”SMS Server” COMP=”SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER”

Client

1. Software center incorrectly displays a status of Waiting to install when it should display Waiting for next available maintenance schedule.
2. Network errors can result in the Location Services component of the SMS Agent Host (ccmexec.exe) generating a sharp increase in CPU activity on client computers.

Software Updates Management

1. Software updates are expired incorrectly based on their creation date instead of their supersedence date.

Additional changes that are included in this update

Vulnerability Assessment

1. The Vulnerability Assessment Overall Report is added to the new Vulnerability Assessment folder in the Administrator Console.

Note: The System Center Configuration Manager Vulnerability Assessment Configuration Pack is still required.

Supported operating systems

1. This update requires the latest release of the Clients for Additional Operating Systems.

2. Ubuntu Linux 16.04 can be targeted for software distribution.

Client

1. Multiple client components are upgraded to remove a dependency on the Visual C++ 2005 runtime.

Note: For the dependency to be removed, the client must be upgraded by using the client setup file, CCMSetup.exe. This is typically invoked through the built-in automatic update feature, or through the client push installation that uses the option to “Always install the client software” enabled. For more information, see How to install clients on Windows-based computers in Configuration Manager.
