Operating System Deployment

Note "xxxxx" is a placeholder for a 5-digit number.
Assume that a Discovery Data Records (DDRs) message contains several organizational unit (OU) paths that are longer than 220 characters.

CDiscoverySource::ValidateSchema - array property User OU Name can not expand size so rejecting. CDiscoverDataManager::ProcessDDRs - Unable to update data source
The SMSDBMon component cannot write a file whose file name contains over 260 characters. Additionally, the Smsdbmon.log file contains events that resemble the following:
Warning: Could not create file E:\SCCM\inboxes\ccr.box\308202FC308201E4A0030201020210149EC80845C6C08E4A6CB705563CF87E300D06092A864886F70D01010B05003016311430120603550403130B53697465205365727665723020170D3132303630353030303830305A180F32313132303531333030303830305A3016311430120603550403130B5369746520536572766572.CPC, Error=3.

When SMS Executive cannot access source files for an application among several applications, you cannot use Dynamic Variables in task sequences to deploy these applications.
If the requirements of an application contain Service Pack 1 or specific values, the application will fail its application model evaluation. Therefore, the application has a Requirements not met entry when it is displayed in Software Center on a client computer. Additionally, the DCMReporting.log file on the client computer contains events that resemble the following:
Targetting of CI is Version Specific CDCMReporting::AddPoliciesForCI GetInstanceFromLantern failed (0x80041002).
Additionally, the Smsts.log file on the Configuration Manager client will contain events that resemble the following if the application is made available for installation from a task sequence:
Start to compile TS policy Failed to load property 'Order'. Error 0x80041002 Failed to load policies from XML. Not found (Error: 80041002; Source: WMI) End TS policy compilation Step 2 out of 2 complete Install application action failed: 'Sample App'. Error Code 0x80041002
