Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is unable to remove Active Management Technology (AMT) user access control lists (ACLs) during the provisioning process for AMT 2.x computers. This problem does not occur for AMT 3.x computers.
Additionally, you find the following error message in the Amtopmgr.log file:
Delete existing ACLs... $$<SMS_AMT_OPERATION_MANAGER><date & time><thread=thread id>Error: there are not 2 additional system accounts: "$$uns" and "$$eac".~
When System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 handles the AMT provisioning process for AMT 2.x computers, it assumes that both of the following accounts exist:
However, both accounts are available only for AMT 3.x computers. System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 stops deleting existing ACLs after it finds that these two accounts do not exist.
