sccm Setup was unable to compile the file SmsClient.mof

Nov 12, 2015 | | Say something

After upgradingĀ  SCCM 2012 SP1 CU5 to SCCM 2012 SP2, some of the SCCM clients failed to start the ccmexec service whenever you restarted it.

I tried re-installing the SCCM client, but received the following error: sccm Setup was unable to compile the file SmsClient.mof

I then realised thatĀ the batch file I was using for the installation was referencing an old version of the SCCM source for the client installation. I amended the batch file to reference the latest version of the SCCM client source files and that resolved the issue.

The SCCM client was successfully installed!

SCCM Environment: SCCM 2012 SP1 CU5 and SCCM 2012 SP2 (mixed mode)

Client OS version: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
