Software Distribution Site Settings for the client are missing from WMI.

    Question

  • We have a .WIM file that is a Windows 7 x86 image.   We laid this down onto a new machine via a USB drive.   As soon as the machine is finished it all seems to work.  Packages were installed via the task sequences etc.....    The CAS.LOG file is empty except for 1 line.  That seems normal since we never deployed anything to it.  But the execmgr.log has this in it.

    This is on a brand new machine from our master .WIM file image.  

    Is our WMI corrupt in our master .WIM file?

  • When a machine is first assigned you will see some erros like this as it creates namespaces in WMI and get settled.  If you are able to deploy applications to the machine now and then you should be able to look and not see the error anymore.

  • Even after going into control panel and running each action the execmgr.log updates these errors.

    So does all of this mean WMI is toast?  Or is this normal to see?

  • Is the client even assigned to a site (you can check the Advanced tab)?

  • Yes, it is and I was able to deploy 2 different packages too it.  So it seems like it works.   When I looked in the Config Man Icon in Control Panel it all looked fine.  

    Should we still be concerned?
