(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256986/EN-US/ )Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
In a domain controlled by multiple sites, the Copylog.tcf file in the Smslogon\Config folder on a logon point lists logon point files and the site that last checked to see if that file should be updated. The Copylog.tcf file should actually list the site that last updated each logon point file, not the site that merely checked the logon point file.
Because of the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) that is performed on some client files, the Systems Management Server (SMS) Service Pack 2 (SP2) client depends on the Copylog.tcf file working the way in which it was originally designed. The client code looks at the Copylog.tcf file to determine the site from which it should obtain the CRC values. In a shared domain where sites are not being upgraded simultaneously, client components may not be installed or upgraded because of the CRC mismatches, if an older site most recently performed a logon point update but a newer site is incorrectly listed in the Copylog.tcf file.
A supported fix that corrects this problem is now available from Microsoft. This fix is one of two fixes that are required for SMS 2.0 sites without Service Pack 1 (build 1239) before any site can be upgraded to SMS 2.0 SP2. This fix is included in the Smsqfe folder on the SP2 CD-ROM. Detailed instructions for hotfix installation are also included in the Release Notes that accompany the service pack.
