Microsoft Intune connector certificate does not renew in Configuration Manager

Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (current branch - version 1810)System Center Configuration Manager (current branch - version 1806)


After you update to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager current branch, version 1806 or 1810, the Microsoft Intune connector certificate renewal process fails.

This problem affects customers who have a hybrid mobile device management environment through Microsoft Intune. The problem occurs when the Service Connection Point is installed on a computer that is running Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Additionally, error messages that resemble the following are recorded in the the DMPUploader log:

The renewal process starts at the halfway point of the certificate lifespan. If the renewal fails after the certificate is expired, Configuration Manager cannot connect to Microsoft Intune.

The following log entry in DMPUploader.log indicates a successful renewal:

The following entry indicates a certificate that is already expired:

To prevent this problem, apply this update. Certificates that are already expired have to be renewed manually to reestablish the Microsoft Intune connection.

For an expired certificate, use either of the following options.
