I haven’t posted anything in ages so I thought I’d post something simple but hopefully useful. We publish a list of all custom Configuration Manager 2007 errors in TechNet (it’s up here in case you haven’t seen it http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632794.aspx). Now, while this list is really good when you’re trawling through Trace32 looking at logs, it’s not so useful when you’re trying to figure out why clients are failing. We have a built-in report in Configuration Manager that provides this information, but again you get hex error codes (which are better than 32-bit decimal integers, but only a little). So what I did was take the report and add a massive case statement with all the custom scan error messages.
The new query for the scan errors can be found below. You can clone the existing report, and put the below query in the new report. Note that there may be some clipping on the blog page, but the underlying code is still there so when you highlight the text you’ll get the full line.
