This problem occurs when you use the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) Administrator console by using Remote Desktop Connection from a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer. If you update the SMS advertisements locally on the Windows Server 2003-based SMS server, the advertisements appear without problems.

This behavior occurs because there is a problem in Windows Server 2003 SP1.
