SCCM Client Only 4 Actions

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am having an issue with a new client I just reimaged. This one has Windows 8.1 on it.


In the ConfigMGR Control Panel I have only 4 Actions listed:

Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle

Discovery Data Collection Cycle

Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle

User Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle


I tried uninstalling the client and reinstalling.


Tried upgrading the client to R2 CU3. Tried deleting the cert but


Nothing seems to be working for me. Any Ideas?

Hi king13p,


It's most likely stuck in provisioning mode from the Task Sequence not being complete. Do you have a Software Update step to install client patches? If so, there might be one of Microsoft infamous double reboot patches in there. They will break the task sequence and leave the clients in a provisioning mode state (see list here: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2894518?wa=wsignin1.0 ).


Set provisioning mode to false manually after installation by either:


1. Powershell command:

powershell Invoke-WmiMethod -Namespace root\CCM -Class SMS_Client -Name SetClientProvisioningMode -ArgumentList $false


2. Registry edit:

HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftCCMCcmExecProvisioningMode = False
HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftCCMCcmExecSystemTaskExclude = (no value, should be blank)
This is just a workaround (by GPO as a temp fix).
The solution would be to take these patches out of Software Updates and patch your baseline image.
If that's not your problem it's probably that the there's:
a. Something wrong with the certificate
b. SCCM site pointer is set to something wrong? (does the client appear in SCCM configmgr console after installation? Do you need to approve it?)
Good luck
