Configuration Manager 1606 Hotfix KB3180992

A new update for your System Centre Configuration Manager has been released, which will bring your SCCM environment to build 5.00.8412.1204.

This update fixes the following issues identified with SCCM;

When you select the Update all clients in the hierarchy using production client option on the Client Upgrade tab of Hierarchy Settings Properties, an exception occurs. The exception details resemble the following:

ConfigMgr Error Object:
instance of SMS_ExtendedStatus
Description = “Failed to save current auto-update configuration”
ErrorCode = 2147500037
3174008 Software update installation freezes on System Center Configuration Manager clients
The Production and Preproduction Client Deployment dashboards show inaccurate client counts.
The Device Compliance section of the Software Center application may incorrectly show a state of Compliant. This affects only the user interface and not the actual compliance state of the device.
After you upgrade a site to version 1606, the Service Connection Point incorrectly shows an error state that indicates the role is not available. If the Service Connection Point is already showing this error state, the following additional steps are required after you install this update:
Change the Availability State registry value from 1 to 4 under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-SOFTWARE-Microsoft-SMS-Operations Management-SMS Server Role-SMS Dmp Connector.
Restart the SMS Executive service on the site server.
The SMS Agent Host “ccmexec.exe” process consumes excessive CPU resources on Pull Distribution Points after you update to version 1606.
When you distribute a software update package that contains many updates (500 or more) to a Pull Distribution Point, the SMS Agent Host process “ccmexec.exe”) stops responding. On examination, the ccmexec.exe thread count, as seen through Task Manager or other tools, shows that approximately 512 threads that are used.

To install this update, go to Administration, then expand Cloud Services and highlight Updates and Servicing.
