Lists of client install error codes


  • 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 – – cannot connect to admin$ – Computer Browser not started – add File/print sharing to Exceptions in Firewall – turn file and print on.

  • Charlie,

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

    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: .

    Here's a also a supplementary KB:  .

    And, there are custom error codes in ConfigMgr (like 0x80004005, which is *not* Access Denied): (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!
