Future of SCCM ConfigMgr Admins?
In this post, I would like to share Microsoft’s internal SCCM admin’s new roles and responsibilities based on Brad’s podcast mentioned below.
SCCM is becoming a core business-critical system (so as SCCM admins) which includes Antimalware, patching, and managing access policies (Conditional Access policies via Intune) to get the mail access and critical data access of your organization. SCCM admins are empowered with new capabilities and responsibilities in your organization.
How to start learning SCCM/ConfigMgr/ MSintune
I do think the future is very bright for SCCM admins. When you think from a broader perspective, SCCM admins are becoming a more integral part of a company with a Core business-critical system.
SCCM admin’s profile will not be limited to patching and application deployment (as critics say – but we know we do a lot more than that). The ITC Podcast Part 2 by Brad Anderson and Kelly Pranghofer provides more insight into this issue.
So Microsoft is continuously listening to the SCCM community and responding to our worries. Microsoft is already deployed SCCM 2012 SP2 with Intune in their environment, as I mentioned in my post here.
Now things are getting centralized via SCCM, and SCCM Admins are going significantly influential individuals in each organization. Keep learning SCCM admins, don’t stop learning SCCM/Intune. More help regarding learning SCCM here.

I am totally new to SCCM 2012 & also to servers. I have having few issues with the sccm server. In the site status it gives me management point critical & also shows 0bytes. Again in component status it shows sms_mp_control _manager as critical availability unknown. My sccm server does not have internet connection. Also all my client are showing as inactive. Please help.
Can you please check the mpcontrol.log and other logs in SCCM 2012 server to check whether the MP and other components are healthy?
Hi Anoop ,
Mpcontrol.logs shows no errors. But the date & time it shows in the log is of august 2013. Is it possible to attach the log files. Please help as i am totally new to this .
MPControl.log says “200 OK” or something else ? Date and Time. I would suggest you to restart the SCCM server after taking necessary approvals. That may help to fix the date issues which you can see in the logs also I may expect some help towards entire troubleshooting of SCCM issue
mpcontrol.log says call to httpsendrequestSync Succeeded for port 80 with the status code 200, text:ok sms_mp_control_manager 8/22/2013. As you mentioned before i have restarted the sccm 2012 server 3-4 times . its not showing current date.
when i go to c:\program files\Microsoft configuration Manager\ it gives error in mpsetup.logs. error:- fatal msi error-mp.msi could not be installed.
mp.msi exited with return code:1603
Hi Anoop ,
Good Morning. Waiting for your help.
Check for “return value 3” in the *.msi.log file. 2 or 3 lines above the that error you would be able to see the actual cause of the issue
Also, please use FB forum to post your questions https://www.facebook.com/groups/ConfigMgr2012
