Windows Management Framework 3.0 impacts System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Management Point reinstallation

ToolsHi everyone, Winds Wu here. I had a case recently and found that Microsoft Windows Management Framework 3.0 (KB2506143) is not completely compatible with System Center 2007 Configuration Manager. The issue is that it may cause a reinstall of a Management Point to fail as you cannot compile mof files using the version of wmiutils.dll that is installed via KB2506143.

Here is the detailed information and workaround for your reference. If anything is unclear please feel free to let me know.

Problem Description

A Management Point failed to be installed and generated the following error in mpMSI.log:

[17:29:08] Failed to compile 'E:\Program Files (x86)\SMS_CCM\LoggingDefaults.mof' (Phase: 3, Object: 1, Lines: 21 - 29, Error: 80041002)
MSI (s) (38!40) [17:29:08:125]: Product: SMS Management Point -- Error 25140. Setup was unable to compile the file LoggingDefaults.mof
The error code is 80041002
Error 25140. Setup was unable to compile the file LoggingDefaults.mof
The error code is 80041002
CustomAction CcmRegisterWmiMofFile returned actual error code 1603

Analysis & Action Plan

1. We found that wmiutils.dll (under C:\Windows\System32\wbem) had the wrong version. It should be something similar to this which was what was on my server:


After checking with a WMI engineer, we found that it was probably caused by the hotfix in KB2506143 ). We already know there is another issue regarding this update in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager but it seems to affect Configuration Manager 2007 as well.

See KB2796086 ( for more information.

To resolve the issue we uninstalled the update.

2. We then found that we could not compile LoggingDefaults.mof manually as it failed with the following error:

Microsoft (R) MOF Compiler Version 6.2.9200.16398
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corp. 1997-2006. All rights reserved.
Parsing MOF file: LoggingDefaults.mof
MOF file has been successfully parsed
Storing data in the repository...
An error occurred while resolving the alias for object 1 defined on lines 21 - 29:
0X80041002 Class, instance, or property 'CCM_Logging_GlobalConfiguration' was not found.
Compiler returned error 0x80041002

This occurred because some dependent mof files had not been compiled successfully. We checked the mpmsi.log from the working environment and saw that the compile sequence should be this:

mofcomp ccmclasses.mof
mofcomp PolicyClasses.mof
mofcomp LoggingClasses.mof
mofcomp Scheduler.mof
mofcomp CcmExec.mof
mofcomp PolicyProvider.mof
mofcomp PolicyProvider2.mof
mofcomp PolicyNamespaces.mof
mofcomp EventClasses.mof
mofcomp StandardEventForwarderClasses.mof
mofcomp SmsEventClasses.mof
mofcomp LoggingDefaults.mof
mofcomp CcmDefaults.mof
mofcomp EventProvider.mof
mofcomp FrameworkEvents.mof
mofcomp StandardEventForwarderDefaults.mof
mofcomp CcmExec_Global.mof
mofcomp ccmauthmessagehook.mof
mofcomp LocationServices.mof
mofcomp PolicyDefaults.mof
mofcomp PolicyAgentEvents.mof
mofcomp StateMsgSchema.mof
mofcomp DataTransferService.mof
mofcomp CcmExec_MPFramework.mof
mofcomp SmsCommon.mof
mofcomp XmlStore.mof
mofcomp InventoryAgentEvents.mof
mofcomp SWMtrEvents.mof
mofcomp SWDistEvents.mof
mofcomp SrcUpdateEvents.mof
mofcomp PatchMgmtEvents.mof
mofcomp SMSNapEvents.mof
mofcomp MpStatusForwarderDefaults.mof
mofcomp CcmExec_MP.mof
mofcomp mp_pss.mof
mofcomp mp_ccmConfig.mof
mofcomp mp_ccmConfig_Defaults.mof
mofcomp MpEvents.mof
mofcomp OSDEventClasses.mof
mofcomp PeerDPStatus.mof
mofcomp ImgDeployEvents.mof
mofcomp DCMClientEvents.mof
mofcomp SUMEvents.mof
mofcomp OOBMgmtEvents.mof
mofcomp VAppEvents.mof

To fix this we wrote a .bat file and compiled them one by one.

Once this was done, the only thing left to do was reinstall the Management Point. This time it was successful and we were good to go.
