I first noticed no “Configuration Manage 2010” version on my console. Strange. I clicked “Check For Updates” under Administration—Updates and Servicing a couple of times, but it remained the same.

I jumped to logs because the message says to check DMPDOWNLOADER.LOG when you click “Check For Updates”.
I found the below error in DMPDOWNLOADER.log. More details about SCCM Logs.

I learned that a new PALO ALTO had been installed. Now what? Shall I wait for the network team to whitelist the required URLs for my current task? I selected the answer as “NO“. Let’s calculate all of our available options.

If we try to pass the traffic via proxy after proper authentication, there might be a chance to get things going. So the first thing I did was find the proxy server information and add the same to “IE – Tools – Internet Options – Connection – LAN Setting – Use Automatic Configuration Script” and enter the Address there. Now, the next time you open IE and try accessing the internet, the traffic will pass through the proxy and ask you to enter the credentials.

The next step would be to configure SCCM to use the proxy.

Configure the Proxy for a Site System Server – FIX ConfigMgr Upgrade Download Error

Go to the Administration workspace in the Configuration Manager console. Expand Site Configuration, then select the Servers and Site System Roles node. Select the site system server that you want to edit. In the details pane, right-click the Site system role and select Properties.

  • In Site System Properties, switch to the Proxy tab. Configure the following proxy settings:
  • Use a proxy server when synchronizing information from the internet: Select this option to enable the site system server to use a proxy server.
  • Proxy server name: Specify the hostname or FQDN of the proxy server in your environment.
  • Port: Specify the network port to communicate with the proxy server. By default, it uses port 80.

Use credentials to connect to the proxy server: Many proxy servers require a user to authenticate. The site system server uses its computer account to connect to the proxy server by default. If necessary, enable this option, click Set, and then choose an Existing Account or specify a New Account. These credentials are the site system proxy server account.

  • Choose OK to save the new proxy server configuration.
