– You have a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) site server that is running on Windows Server 2003.
– You install an Asset Intelligence synchronization point on the site server.
– You install the hotfix that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2733615 on the site server.
– The Asset Intelligence synchronization point tries to synchronize with the System Center Online service.
In this scenario, synchronization fails. Additionally, the following error message is logged in the Aiupdatesvc.log file:
Asset Intelligence Catalog Sync Service Error: 0 : date and time:CryptoException trying to get certificate – The specified network password is not correct.
This issue occurs because the certificate that was released in hotfix 2733615 cannot resolve some password-related issues in Windows Server 2003.
For additional details and a link to a ConfigMgr 2007 hotfix that resolves this issue please see the following:
