SCCM activation error: Failed to Call CheckCertificate provider method, 80041001



I'm trying to activate some vpro's machines and I'm getting the error (in oobmgmt.log):

BEGIN oobmgmt 3/16/2011 8:38:33 AM 3976 (0x0F88)

My machine is a DELL Optiplex 780. Running the MEInfo I get this info:

AMT SKU Found.


Intel(R) MEInfo Win Version:

Looking into the WMI class, through Powershell I get this:

PS D:\> $PrvSrv = [wmiclass]"root\ccm:CCM_PrvsMethodProvider"

PS D:\> $PrvSrv.CheckCertificate("74 2C 31 92 E6 07 E4 24 EB 45 49 54 2B E1 BB C5 3E 61 74 E2".Replace(" ",""))

__GENUS : 2


















__PATH :


dvcCert : 742C3192E607E424EB4549542BE1BBC53E6174E2


ErrorCode : 0


ErrorMsg :


ReturnValue : 0

So, I think I'm able to activate this device, but I still get the error in the SCCM Client activation.

Someone can help me to find out what's happening?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Perazza,

What provisioning certificate are you using? Check the thumbprint of the Root Certificate of the CA that issued your provisioning cert. If it is not one of the hashes that is currently shipping with our firmware, you will need to enter it manually.

My provisioning certificate was correct. I just needed to wait until the activation process took place. I don't know what happened. But it's working fine now.


Tks for your reply
