LocalSystem’s decimal separator char was “,” instead of “.“! And there was one decimal value in the MOF file.

You can see a lot of chatter on Twitter in this thread from the Microsoft team. Panu got it working by changing the decimal separator, but it took some time to figure out what was wrong. More details available in the Twitter thread.
