When you double-click the Systems Management Server tool in Control Panel on a computer that is running Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 or Microsoft Systems Management Server 2.0, you may receive one of the following error messages.
This problem may occur if the SMS client computer has more than 20 network adapters installed. This applies to physical adapters, virtual adapters, and dial-up adapters. For example, one type of server that may have more than 20 network adapters installed is the 3Com Edgeserver. This problem may also occur if the SMS client computer has a large number of IP addresses but only one network adapter or only a few network adapters.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Systems Management Server 2.0 Service Pack 2.
Note This problem is also corrected in the SMS Legacy Client in Systems Management Server 2003.
To install this hotfix, follow these steps:
- Stop the SMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGER and SMS_EXECUTIVE services.
- Copy the updated Compver.ini file to the Inboxes\Clicomp.src\Base folder.
- Copy the hotfixed Clicore.exe file to the Inboxes\Clicomp.src\Base\
- Copy the updated Mslmclin.dll, Ndsclin.dll, and Bindclin.dll files to the SMS\Bin\
Note For Alpha-based computers, only one file, Mslmclin.dll, is included with this hotfix. This is normal.
- Start the SMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGER and SMS_EXECUTIVE services.
The default Client Configuration Installation Manager (CCIM) polling interval is 23 hours. Therefore, it may take up to 23 hours for the hotfixed files to be propagated to the clients. To speed up this process, you can stop and restart the SMS Client Service on each client. You can also create a software distribution for one of the Resource Kit tools (Setevnt.exe or Cliutils.exe), along with the appropriate parameter(s) to start a CCIM work cycle. For information about the proper syntax to use with these tools, see the Resource Kit documentation.
