Client not installing error Failed to receive ccm message response. Status code = 403

Recommended Posts


Thank you for reading my post.

I been looking into this issue for days with no happy ending

I have recently rebuild my SCCM 2012 R2 envirement (lab) to get a better understanding of pki certificates. I have followed the microsoft guide and thought it went well untill it came to installing my SCCM client on a windows 7 computer.


Failed to receive ccm message response. Status code = 403
GetDPLocations failed with error 0x80004005
Failed to get DP locations as the expected version from MP 'HTTPS://TSB-SCCM01.Thomasroom.local'.Error 0x80004005
Failed to find DP locations from MP 'HTTPS://TSB-SCCM01.Thomasroom.local'with error 0x80004005, status code 403. Check next MP.
Only one MP HTTPS://TSB-SCCM01.Thomasroom.local is specified. Use it.
Have already tried all MPs. Couldn't find DP locations. ccmsetup
GET 'HTTPS://TSB-SCCM01.Thomasroom.local/CCM_Client/ccmsetup.cab'
Failed to successfully complete WinHttp request. (StatusCode at WinHttpQueryHeaders: 403
DownloadFileByWinHTTP failed with error 0x80004005


My certificate seems to be working


Completed searching client certificates based on Certificate Issuers Begin to select client certificate

From what I have been reading on other forms

It could be an IIS permission error (I dont know enough about IIS - but the log looks ok) - attached

My boundries are not setup - they are

DNS is working I can nslookup my SCCM server from the client


has anyone got any thoughts


thank you

Well I think I know what the issue is - I think my Certificate I installed on my DP is wrong :-(


This is the Guide I used and followed. . .




The reason why I think its the Certificate is looking at my MPCONTROL.log (attached)

I see the below


Skipping this certificate which is not valid for ConfigMgr usage. SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER 22/01/2017 19:59:50 4136 (0x1028)

What would happen If I deleted all of my certificates from my Certificate server and started again

or would building a new SCCM server be better.
