The System Center 2012 Configuration Manager console crashes when an item in a list view is moved to a collapsed group

Consider the following scenario:
  • You view the Discovery Methods node in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager console.
  • You select the Group By option, select Status, and then you collapse the Enabled group.
  • You enable one of the items that is listed in the Disabled group.

In this scenario, the Configuration Manager console crashes.

NOTE This problem may occur in other scenarios. For example, the problem also occurs when you make a change to an item in a list that is organized by using the Group By option, and the change causes the item to be moved to a collapsed group.
To work around this problem, leave the groups expanded while you change the properties that may cause items to move to another group.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
