KB: You may be unable to create, edit, or delete rules for a compliance policy in Microsoft ConfigMgr 1606


Here’s a quick note on a new KB article/hotfix we published for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager version 1606. The issue you may run into is one where the buttons to create, edit, or delete rules are dimmed and unavailable on the "Specify the rules for a compliant device" page of the Create Compliance Policy Wizard. Additionally, you cannot add a rule with the “Network firewall on” condition to an existing compliance policy. This issue can occur after you upgrade from System Center Configuration Manager version 1602 to version 1606.

If you experience this problem, a hotfix is available for installation in the Updates and Servicing node of the Configuration Manager console for version 1606. For compete details please see the following:

  1. Update from 1511 directly to 1606 exposed issue – but hotfix didn’t correct – any idea why?

    I have installed the Hotfix KB3184153, I still am not able to create a rule , all is still greyed out. So, what’s next?

    Didn’t fix it on my system either – The issue is present when you select Compliance rules for devices managed with the configuration manager client, depending on the operating system you select depends on whether they are all greyed out or not. When I selected just windows 10 64bit in one scenario I was presented with just the edit button not greyed out, and no rules in the list to edit. Clicking on the button caused an exception error that crashed the console then i couldn’t repeat the error, seems buggy to me.

    Upgraded from 1602 to 1606 this past weekend. Then Installed this hotfix and the rules are still grayed out when choosing a “Devices managed with the Configuration Manager Client”. If we choose “without” the client then the rules show up however those are not the rules we need. Hopefully a new hotfix will be coming soon.
