Lists of client install error codes RRS feed

  • Question

  • SCCM2012, Primary site, trying to push out clients.

    Anyone know where a complete list of "Last Installation Error" exists?  I've come across the ones below, but I'm having many others that I cannot determine what the installation error refers to. Just 2 of them I cannot get solid information are 1305, 1789.

    2 – The system cannot find the file specified.
    5 – Access denied.
    52 – You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. Make sure there is not a duplicate name in DNS and that 2 machines don’t have the same IP in DNS.
    53 – Unable to locate – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920852 – cannot connect to admin$ – Computer Browser not started – add File/print sharing to Exceptions in Firewall – turn file and print on.
    58 – The specified server cannot perform The requested operation
    64 – The specified network name is no longer available. Source: Windows
    67 – network name cannot be found. 
    86 – network password is not correct? Machine Name <> resolved name.
    112 – Not enough disk space
    1003 – Cannot complete this function.
    1053 – The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
    1068 – The dependency service or group failed to start
    1130 – Not enough server storage is available to process this command. Source: Windows
    1203 – The network path was either typed incorrectly, does not exist, or the network provider is not currently available. Please try retyping the path or contact your network administrator.
    1208 – An extended error has occurred. Source: Windows
    1396 – Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect. (NBTSTAT -a reverse lookup, duplicate IP address)
    1450 – Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service. Source: Windows

  • Charlie,

    Great work, you should write this in a blog post.

    1789 - The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

    1305 - The revision level is unknown.

  • Hi Charlie,

      i am using two ways to translate MS Win error codes and usually it translate everything:

    1, in command line: net helpmsg 1789

    2, use trace32.exe from SCCM tools (trace log tool) goto menu Tools> Error Lookup

    this is greate and works fine

  • Here's a blog post I did a while back on finding the meaning of standard error codes: http://blog.configmgrftw.com/?p=42 .

    Here's a also a supplementary KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944375  .

    And, there are custom error codes in ConfigMgr (like 0x80004005, which is *not* Access Denied): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632794.aspx (this is for 2007, can't find an equivalent for 2012 but I'm sure it's still applicable).

  • Hi, I have a few codes that don't appear on here, anyone have any ideas what they mean? Many thanks for any help.

  • Return codes are not always standardized, so it's more or less impossible to tell what they mean. Especially if we don't know the context of them.

  • Thanks Torsten, these are error codes seen as a result of a client push. I don't know if that helps or not, I have a feeling they are either WMI or firewall related. I am trying to get access to the machines to do some testing but as they are on a customer site it's invariably difficult!

  • Hey Paul,

    I know this is an old thread, but I've being banging my head looking for these error codes and I finally found them:

    -2147023174:  The RPC server is unavailable.  (in many situations I found AV software the culprit)

    -2147024891:   Access is denied.

    Hope this may help others!

  • Hi, there was once a tool named HResult+ which could show the meaning of any result code, even searching in specified libraries when not found in the system. Unfortunately, it seems not mantained anymore and unstable on W7.

    After founding many partial and incomplete lists, I found that the goal could be easily reached (most of times) via Powershell. Here is the simple code (not mine for the major part):

    function Explain-Error {
    Shows the description of the error code in input.
    Shows the description of the error code in input.
    .PARAMETER ErrorCode
    None. Piping input is not supported.
    Explain-Error -ErrorCode "0x00000005"
        if ($ErrorCode -notlike "") {
            "L'errore di sistema $Ierr (Hex 0x"+ "{0:X0}" -f $Ierr + " - Dec " + "{0:D0}" -f $Ierr + ") corrisponde a:"
            [SrsResources.Localization]::GetErrorMessage($Ierr, "it-IT")

    Hope it helps.

  • CMTrace has this built in including loading HResult meanings from specific pre-defined libraries.
