Error 0x8004FF56 during FEP deployment
A quick post about an error during FEP client deployment in a lab environment.
In order to test some features, I have deployed a new virtual machine in my lab environment. Then I have distributed FEP Install to my new client computer.
On the client, I have launched the installation, but after a short instant, the installation failed. To troubleshoot SCCM software distribution, I use the support tools trace32 (thanks to Aurélien Bonnin, MVP SCCM and great colleague at vNext for his help). So, I have open the execmgr log to troubleshoot my issue.
Doesn’t help me a lot, but I have noticed the execution command line. I run this command line directly on my client, and the execution failed with the following error code : 0x8004FF56.
After a very short moment, I have realized that I have forgotten to upgrade my Windows XP to Service Pack 3, which is a requirement before FEP deployment.
