MP could not write out CCM setting to WMI Error in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager


Even though SCCM is not my main area of expert I sometimes use it and troubleshoot it. Recently my Management Point server was giving the following error:

MP could not write out CCM setting to WMI.

Possible cause: MP didn’t get installed properly.
Solution: Ensure MP setup succeeded; if not, reinstall MP

Over Internet you will find that this error associated with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager but I stumbled upon it on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager on Windows Server 2012 R2.

The error clearly advises the Management Point role to be reinstalled. But before trying that I’ve tried to found some other way. Here are the steps I’ve followed:

  1. Frist I’ve fixed the WMI provider configuration on the SQL server that was holding my SCCM database. I’ve followed this KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956013
  2. I’ve restarted the SQL server.

  3. I’ve restarted the SCCM Management Point server.

  4. Changed the account of the Management Point. As this didn’t worked I’ve returned the configuration back to the computer account.

  1. Changed Client connections from HTTP to HTTPS. Didn’t gave a result.

  1. But after I’ve changed it to HTTP again I’ve saw some events in the log of the Management Point that gave me hint that probably I’ve managed to fix it:

As you can see the Management Point was repaired and reinstalled. The Management Point was responding to HTTP request and status changed to Online.

You can verify manually if your Management Point is working by opening these addresses:

http://<MP Name>/sms_mp/.sms_aut?mplist – returns a list of MP’s installed on this site including the secondary site MP’s

 

Hope this will help you if you encounter this issue.
