VMs Stuck on Applying Computer Settings after upgrade to SEP 12.1 RU1
VMWare Tools v4.0.0 build 392990
XP SP3 with latest patches and updates
Upgraded from SEP 11 RU6 using SEPM v12.1 RU1
After the upgrade, SEPM showed that the VM required a restart, so I did. When it started back up, it stuck at "Applying Computer Settings". I left it for over 30 minutes while I checked other VMs and a few of them had the same problem.
I was able to recover the others by going into safe mode and removing SEP using CleanWipe. On the other VMs, I was able to manually install SEP 12.1 RU1 (exported a full install and removed the /qn from setup.ini) and everything was fine. Not with this one.
I noticed that SEP installed a Teefer driver v12.1.808.5 (8/16/2011), which disabled the network card. When I revert back to v11.0.4819.6, my network starts working again - usually after disabling and enabling the card a few times.
When it hangs, there are two DCOM errors in the System log:
- ID: 10005
- Source: DCOM
- Description: DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service BITS with arguments "" in order to run the server:
I'm trying one last install of 12.1 RU1 on this VM, and will be attempting to leave 12.1 with teefer drivers of 11.
Anyone have any suggestions on what may be causing this? Is there an issue with VMs and 12.1 RU1 that I missed?
