Let’s check and understand the SCCM 2107 known issues heard from the community and Microsoft. I will also update the KB articles or hotfixes whenever it’s released for these known issues. You can also check out our 2107 upgrade guide to know more about the latest version prerequisites, etc…
The latest version of ConfigMgr 2107 contains fixes and feature improvements compared with the previous versions. Microsoft will soon release a list. As I always say, this is not an all-inclusive list of known issues and fixes/workarounds included in the 2107 version.
I have also documented the KB articles already included with the SCCM 2107 version in the below section of the post. I have included a table for fixes that are part of this version of ConfigMgr for easy access.
There are a lot of SCCM 2107 known issues fixed with the latest versions of SCCM 2111. I have updated the list of those fixes in the following blog post. List Of SCCM 2111 Known Issues and Fixes.
SCCM 2107 Hotfixes
I don’t think Microsoft released any hotfixes related to the 2107 version of ConfigMgr. Let’s check the hotfixes released for the Configuration Manager 2107 production version after a few weeks. I will try to update this list whenever Microsoft releases new hotfixes for 2107.
- KB10503003 Hotfix Released for SCCM 2107 Early Ring (5 known issues fixed)
- SCCM 2107 Rollup Update KB11121541 – Most of the issues hightlited below are fixed with hotfix rollup update.
Windows 11-based boot image Error 80070002
When you use a Windows 11-based boot image with an OS deployment task sequence that includes the Pre-provision BitLocker step, the step might fail. You’ll see errors similar to the following strings in the smsts.log:
'TakeOwnership' failed (2147942402) pTpm->TakeOwnership(sOwnerAuth), HRESULT=80070002 Failed to take ownership of TPM. Ensure that Active Directory permissions are properly configured The system cannot find the file specified. (Error: 80070002; Source: Windows) Process completed with exit code 2147942402 Failed to run the action: Pre-provision BitLocker. Error -2147024894
The workaround to this issue is a registry hack. You will need to add a Run Command Line step to the task sequence before the Pre-provision BitLocker step. You can use the following registry fix and the Run the following command:
reg.exe add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\TPM /v OSManagedAuthLevel /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

Microsoft Documented – SCCM 2107 Known Issues
The following is the list of issues that Microsoft already documented. The first issue that they have highlighted is related to the download of the 2107 version of SCCM. The SCCM 2107 update fails to download because of a connectivity issue with internet endpoint configmgrbits.azureedge.net. I have highlighted this point in the SCCM 2107 upgrade guide.
- Task sequence and application policy issue with SCCM 2107. The ConfigMgr client won’t be able to get all of the policies for the TS and referenced applications. You can run the following SQ query to understand whether you have the issue or not. If the query returns zero, you don’t have the issue.
select COUNT(*) from Policy where PolicyID like '%/VI%' AND ((ISNULL(PolicyFlags, 0) & 4096 = 4096) OR (ISNULL(PolicyFlags, 0) & 2048 = 2048))
- You can check the workaround for this issue – task sequence and application policy issue in version 2107 early update ring from release note from the resources section below.
CMPivot Wrong Syntax Known Issues
After the upgrade to the 2107 version of SCCM, CMPivot Favorite queries didn’t work because it automatically creates some additional characters, as mentioned below.
- When you click on the Favorite button from CMPivot, the query is displayed with additional characters like \r or \t.
- The part of the CMPivot query after the last comma (,) gets removed.
Lose SCCM Console Custom Settings
You will lose all the custom settings from the SCCM console after upgrading the console version to 2107. But the custom configurations after SCCM 2107 upgrade will get saved/persist when you reopen the console. Some of the examples are given below.
- Column changes
- Window size
Windows 11 is automatically selected as Supported Platform
There is an SCCM 2107 bug related to supported platform selection for Windows 11 operating system. The SCCM will automatically add Windows 11 operating system option, as the supported platform will get added to all supported workloads (after 24 hours of 2107 upgrade). The Windows 11 option will be automatically selected, especially for the following workloads. You need to revise the supported platform list manually.
