SCCM 2012 R2 Hardware Inventory Issue

Recommended Posts



I’ve got SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 deployed with around 900 clients, all 99.9% Windows 7 Pro, at the moment, we’re still in the roll out phase. We have a problem that around 250 clients are not reporting Hardware Inventories. I can see in the InventoryAgent.log on some of the clients that the inventory seems to complete, see screenshot. I’ve looked in the dataldr.log on the server and I can see some of the following


‘ERROR: File size 5279390(Bytes) exceeds defined maximum 5000000(Bytes).’





ERROR - attempt to update non-existent row (sp = pWorkstationStatus_DATA). Invalid command: exec dbo.pWorkstationStatus_DATA 1,16777796,'09/10/2015 00:28:30',1,'9/10/2015 00:26:48',N'8589934593',2057,60



If I look in ‘E:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\auth\dataldr.box\BADMIFS’ There are a few folders, both ExceedSizeLimit and NonExistentRow have 400+ MIF files....


Help! What do I need to do?

You need to change the max file size, http://be.enhansoft.com/post/2013/12/10/Change-the-Maximum-File-Size-of-Management-Information-Files-(MIF)-in-SCCM-2012.aspx to allow bigger files than 5MB.
