STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Systems Management Server version 1.2.

MORE INFORMATION

For more information about using Systems Management Server 1.2 with Windows 2000, please download the wincompat.doc file from the following Microsoft Web site:

To install the hotfix, use the appropriate method.

NOTE: This hotfix involves updating the System.map file. All clients go through a "mini-upgrade" the next time they run the SMS logon script.

Method 1: Using the Hotfix Installer

NOTE: This method is only for Intel-based computers.

  1. Create a folder in a location that is accessible to your Systems Management Server site server(s).
  2. Copy the update program file (along with the required support files Hotfix.map, Sendcode.exe, Mergemap.exe, and Shutdown.ct1) and platform folders to the new folder. The folder structure must be such that the program file and support files are located one folder above the platform folders.
  3. From each of the primary and secondary Systems Management Server site servers in your environment, log on to your site server by using an account with administrative privileges.
  4. Quit the Systems Management Server Administrator console, where applicable.
  5. Run Q254532.exe and follow the directions in the wizard.

Method 2: Manual Installation

  1. Create a folder in a location that is accessible to your Systems Management Server site server(s).
  2. Copy the Hotfix.map, Sendcode.exe, Sendcode_alpha.exe, Mergemap.exe, and Mergemap_alpha.exe files, and the platform folders, to the new folder. For simplicity, the folder structure should be such that the support files are located one folder above the platform folders.
  3. From each of the primary and secondary Systems Management Server site servers in your environment, log on to your site server by using an account with administrative privileges.
  4. Quit the Systems Management Server Administrator console, where applicable.
  5. Perform a site shutdown. You can do this by clicking Shutdown Site from the Operations option in Maintenance-mode Setup (that is, by running Systems Management Server Setup from the Systems Management Server program group). You can also use the supplied Sendcode program to shut down the site. Using the appropriate platform version, (that is, Sendcode.exe for the Intel platform or Sendcode_alpha.exe for the Alpha platform), run the following command from a command prompt from the folder where the support files are located:

    sendcode.exe/sendcode_alpha.exe sms_site_config_manager 234

  6. Apply the updated files:
    1. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\Check20.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    2. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Platform.bin\Clicfg.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    3. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Platform.bin\Invproc.dll file with the hotfixed version.
    4. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Platform.bin\Invwin32.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    5. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Platform.bin\Sightnt.dll file with the hotfixed version.
    6. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Platform.bin\Wbeminv.dll file with the hotfixed version.
    7. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\Platform.bin\Inv32cli.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    8. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\Platform.bin\Invwin32.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    9. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\Platform.bin\Wbeminv.dll file with the hotfixed version.
    10. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Smsrcins.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    11. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Kbs-kbd.inf file with the hotfixed version.
    12. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Kbs-mou.inf file with the hotfixed version.
    13. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Kbstuf5i.cat file with the hotfixed version.
    14. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Kbstuf5i.cdf file with the hotfixed version.
    15. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Client.src\X86.bin\Kbstuff5.sys file with the hotfixed version.
    16. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Site.srv\Maincfg.box\Mstest\W9xtow2k.exe file with the hotfixed version.
    17. Replace the Sms_root_folder\Primsite.srv\Import.src\Enu\W2000pro.pdf file with the hotfixed version.
  7. Update the System.map file by using the supplied Mergemap program and Hotfix.map file. Using the appropriate platform version of Mergemap, (that is, Mergemap.exe for the Intel platform or Mergemap_alpha.exe for the Alpha platform) run the following command from a command prompt from the folder where the support files are located:

    mergemap.exe/mergemap_alpha.exe sms_root_folder\System.map hotfix.map

  8. Perform a site reset. You can do this by clicking Reset Site from the Operations option in Maintenance-mode Setup. You can also use the supplied Sendcode program to reset the site. First, restart the SMS_Site_Config_Manager service on the Systems Management Server site server. Then, using the appropriate platform version (that is, Sendcode.exe for the Intel platform or Sendcode_alpha.exe for the Alpha platform), run the following command from a command prompt from the folder where the support files are located:

    sendcode.exe/sendcode_alpha.exe sms_site_config_manager 194
