ConfigMgr 2012 R2: Failed to update Boot Image

Kept on getting error “Failed to insert OSD binaries into the mounted WIM file”


The steps I did to fix this issue was to replace the wim file with the ADK WinPE file. Here’s the steps:

1. Rename the faulty boot.wim in folder <SCCM_Installation_Folder\osd\boot\x64 to boot.bak
2. Copy winpe.wim from <ADK_Installation_Drive>\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\x64\en-us to <SCCM_Installation_Folder>\osd\boot\x64
3. Rename winpe.wim to boot.wim
4. Paste the same winpe.wim to the same folder and rename it to boot.<packageID>.wim


You may redo this for x86 if it’s giving you the same issue.

ConfigMgr 2012 R2: Report not running

Found some “strange” issue with reporting. srsrp.log doesn’t show any error, everything looks just fine except launching a report. When we click Run on any report, it doesn’t seems to launch.

Decided to check those log files, found from this log located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\AdminUILog\SMSAdminUI.log


Found this error in the highlighted lines. Tricky part is it’s not highlighted in Red using cmtrace.



1. Install Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 Redistributable Package. It can be found from the Internet or C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\ReportViewer.exe

2. Close and launch your SCCM Console again and it should be able to Run the reports now.

Unable to login to ConfigMgr Application Catalog

Detected this error “Portal Web Site Control Manager detected PORTALWEB is not responding to HTTP requests. The http status code and text is 500, Internal Server Error”


Solution= Re-register IIS using the command shown below:

1. Launch command prompt with elevated rights

2. Go to %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319 (Framework if it’s on a 32-bit computer)

3. Type aspnet_regiis.exe /iru hit Enter


4. Immediately you can login to the portal and slowly you’ll notice the error will be gone.
