HOTFIX: The SMS Agent Host service on a client computer exits unexpectedly in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1

Hotfix160_thumb2

The Systems Management Server (SMS) Agent Host service on a client computer exits unexpectedly during the processing of task sequences in an environment that is running Cumulative Update 5 for Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (SP1).

This problem occurs because of a change in Cumulative Update 5 that causes the task sequence engine of the client to incorrectly initialize its logging subsystem. This may cause the client to exit unexpectedly when it processes task sequences.

For all the details as well as a download link for a hotfix that resolves this issue, please see the following:
