  • Version mismatch in custom iOS app causes reporting back to be unsuccessful in ConfigMgr and Intune

    Posted on October 14th, 2014 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    I’ve encountered quite an interesting issue when deploying a custom iOS (IPA) app using System Center Configuration Manager and Intune. The problem is that the deployment status for the app never reports as “Success” and is hung at “In progress”. As it turns out there is a mismatch in the version info that exist within the IPA file and the plist file that is included when deploying the IPA.

    The CFBundleVersion listed within the IPA in the file info.plist

    <key>CFBundleVersion</key>
    <string>1.2.3</string>

    must match the bundle-version found in the plist file that is used when creating the app deployment in Configuration Manager.

    <key>bundle-version</key>
    <string>1.2.3</string>

    If these values do not match the status will never be reported as successful in the ConfigMgr console. After the September 2014 maintenance window for Intune I also suspect that this version mismatch is causing the app to be re-deployed over and over again, however this has yet to be confirmed.

    Note: You can easily check the content of info.plist within the IPA by renaming the IPA to ZIP and extract its contents. Use a plist viewer of your choice (there are several free for trial) to check the CFBundleVersion.

  • Solution to the UUID problem when deploying Windows 8.1 using ConfigMgr 2012 R2

    Posted on June 28th, 2014 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    When deploying Windows 8.1 Machines using System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2, me and as good as everyone ever done a Windows 8.1 deployment using CM2012R2, has seen the issue. The issue is that the first time a user log in to the deployed machine, it gives an error:

    The Group Policy Client service failed the sign-in.
    The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported.

    The problem has been seen from time to time but at last there is a solution to this elusive problem. The solution or workaround actually, is provided in KB2976660: First logon fails with “The universal unique identifier (UUID) type is not supported”.

  • UserLicenseTypeInvalid when enrolling an iOS device in Intune/ConfigMgr

    Posted on November 8th, 2013 By Andreas Stenhall + 1 comment

    When setting up and connecting Windows Intune to System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 and you are trying to enroll a mobile device (iOS device), you may receive the error “UserLicenseTypeInvalid”.

    Checking the cloudusersync.log on the ConfigMgr server listed the following two lines which seemed to be relevant:

    ERROR: SetLicensedUsers exception System.ServiceModel.Security.SecurityNegotiationException: Could not establish secure channel for SSL/TLS with authority 'msub05.manage.microsoft.com'

    Solution: Simply restart the SMS_EXECUTIVE service and everything is back on track and you can enroll the user on the mobile device. I have seen this a few times now and thought I’d share some information on it, not sure why it fails quite often though.

    UPDATE: I have also seen this (without the error message above) when the user has not been added yet to the User Collection and synced to Intune. Solution is to make sure that the user is added to the Intune user Collection and make sure via cloudusersync.log that the user is added correctly to the Intune service.
