Symptoms
After you use the Transfer Settings Wizard to transfer status filter rules from one site to another in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007, the receiving site no longer processes status messages.

Additionally, the following error message is logged in the Statmgr.log file after the SMS_Executive service (Smsexec.exe) is restarted:

ERROR: The component item for SMS_STATUS_MANAGER in the master site control file does not contain a "Installed Status Summarizers" property list item.
This problem occurs when the following section is missing from the Sitectrl.ct0 file:
BEGIN_PROPERTY_LIST         <Installed Status Summarizers>         <SMS_OFFER_STATUS_SUMMARIZER>         <SMS_COMPONENT_STATUS_SUMMARIZER> END_PROPERTY_LIST
Cause
This problem occurs because the Transfer Settings Wizard does not correctly save the Installed Status Summarizers property during the import process.
