I do occasionally take the time to monitor the FSP logs, specifically for client deployment failures. I came across this little beauty of a problem:
Of course the error “Client deployment is waiting for client installation content from distributions points.” is erroneous. It’s a symptom of the problem, and can be ignored. I dug deeper, and looked at the ccmsetup.log. It was a sea of red, as per below:
…but now we’re starting to get somewhere. It’s not a “Distribution Points” issue at all; the client is complaining about certificate problems. Specifically: “Finding certificate by issuer chain returned error 80092004”, and if you read further down:
“There are no certificates in the ‘MY’ store”
Bingo! I checked the Personal Store on the affected PC, and it was empty. So now this isn’t a Config Manager issue per se, the machine isn’t even automatically enrolling. I tried to do this manually, and it too failed with the error:
I checked the enrollment properties and found:
No policy ID! So the PC isn’t even talking to the enrollment point. I checked logs, nothing.
So I am a bit stuck. I suppose these things do happen! I have posted on TechNet and I’ll come back to this post later(tm)!
