SCCM 1910 Co-management Settings FIX

SCCM 1910 version has a known issue with Co-management settings. Customers reported that ConfigMgr 1910 Co-Management Settings Unexpectedly Grayed out or available to configure. Let’s see how to FIX Co-Management Settings issues with 1910 version.

Introduction

With latest KB4540794 release, Microsoft provided a workaround to FIX the issues of co-management settings in 1910 version of Configuration Manager. The Goal of this fix it to remove existing co-management settings information from WMI so that it may be added back from the ConfigMgr console.

NOTE! – Don’t look for the KB454079 in your ConfigMgr console. It won’t be available in console. From my perspective this is a temporary workaround available to fix the issues with co-management.

  • Issues#1 – Once you delete a setting from the Co-management node in the SCCM console, the Configure co-management option is unexpectedly grayed out and unavailable. This blocks you from re-enabling co-management.
  • Issues #2 – In SCCM 1910, changes are not saved in the Properties window of the co-management setting.

The following steps should be following if you have co-management issue#1 explained above. If you are experiencing issue#2, then you might need to delete the co-management settings from console and try again.

  1. Hey Anoop, thanks for this. Any suggestion for the issue I am facing – wizard runs successfully but nothing appears after that in console.

  2. So I had no previous setting, yet mine is greyed out. I have verified nothing is in WMI, yet nothing has changed. Thoughts?

    • Anybody got any ideas here? I am still in the same boat. Upgraded to 2002. Everything in fix I have double checked, yet unable to configure co-management still.

  3. Beautiful. Thank you for taking the time to post this. I had option 1 and it worked like a charm. No reboot needed. I demo these and just gave up on this early this year. I cycle through many Intune subscriptions which caused the problem. I already tried purging the data in the SQL table which broke other items. (not your post). Good thing I have SQL backups and system images. (demo only)
