|1||During client policy download, the execmgr.log repeats the following log entry multiple times every minute.|

|4||Clients are unable to communicate over a custom port for a management point when other communications changes are made to the site.|
|5||State messages from clients may not be properly recorded if the client computer restarts within 10 seconds of state message generation. This results in inconsistent or unexpected state message values, affecting the accuracy of the task sequence and software deployment reporting.|
|6||Clients incorrectly attempt to use PKI certificates for communication, even if the option Use PKI client certificate (client authentication capability) when available is disabled on the Communication Security tab of Site Properties.|
|7||After updating to ConfigMgr current branch, version 2006, client installation using the PROVISIONTS property fails if the “Allow access to cloud distribution point” device setting is set to “No”. The client is unable to download content, and an error resembling the following is recorded in the tsagent.log file.|
|8||The installation of a passive site server fails if orphaned.JOB files are present in the \inboxes\schedule.box folder. A message resembling the following is repeated in the FailOverMgr.log file.|

|15||ConfigMgr clients deployed to Mac computers receive duplicate GUIDs. This occurs if the same user name is provided as a parameter to the CMEnroll tool during client installation.|

|18||The setting Allow access to cloud distribution points is not configured when clients are deployed using the Autopilot service and the PROVISIONS parameter. This causes Install Application and Install Software Updates task sequence steps to fail.|
