So I was working with Operations Manager 2007 in my lab environment here at home, and since I have a few Windows Vista clients I thought I would enable Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM) on the Management Server. Well that process went fine and the share where the clients would copy the error reports to was created successfully, along with the creation of .ADM template file. I then attempted to import the .ADM template into an existing Group Policy in AD to enable the client monitoring settings. Well I then started to receive errors for lines 155, 321, and 395 with respect to not following the format/syntax of an .ADM template. I opened up the .ADM template and discovered that the value for the server path, directing the client to copy the error report to, was not enclosed in quotes.
Here is an example of the formatting issue:
PART !!DumpPath_Edit EDITTEXT KEYNAME "Software\Policies\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\ExceptionHandling" VALUENAME DWFileTreeRoot DEFAULT \\servername.something.com\Windows Error Reporting END PART
It should look like this:
PART !!DumpPath_Edit EDITTEXT KEYNAME "Software\Policies\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\ExceptionHandling" VALUENAME DWFileTreeRoot DEFAULT "\\servername.something.comWindows Error Reporting" END PART
Once I enclosed the path in quotes for all three values and attempted to import the template in Group Policy Manager, it was successful.
So, if you happen to implement Client Monitoring and define a share for clients to copy the error reports to, be prepared to edit the .ADM template generated by Operations Manager before you go and import it into AD.
I'll have to check if a bug was submitted for this already, and if not I'll be adding another one to the list for SP1....
