Issues fixed in SCCM 2010 Hotfix KB4594176

Some of the important issues addressed in Hotfix KB4594176 include.

  • After you create multiple orchestration groups, only the first group works as expected. Clients that belong to other orchestration groups beyond the first will receive incorrect policy.
  • Users can only delete a collection if they have the Full Administrator security role. This is true even if they own the collection and otherwise would have authority to perform the deletion.
  • If you have a highly available site server and you update to version 2010, the site server in passive mode fails to update. This issue is due to a change in the Microsoft Monitoring Agent (MMA) for Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection.
  • The Configuration Manager console terminates unexpectedly when viewing the preview of query results with a large result set.
  • The Configuration Manager console terminates unexpectedly if there is a zero-byte ConsoleUsage-{date}-{time}.xml file under %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\ConfigMgr10.
    If this issue occurs, check for and delete the zero-byte file.
  • After onboarding to Desktop Analytics, The Importance value of apps does not appear in the Apps tab of the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center. In addition, apps deployed with Configuration Manager may not be listed on the Apps tab at all.
  • If you use a PKI-based certificate for operating system boot media, configure it for SHA256 with the Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES provider. For globally available version 2010, this certificate configuration is recommended but not required. The certificate can be a v3(CNG) certificate.
  • Device compliance status on the Software Update Dashboard may show an incorrect count of devices and incorrect compliance percentage.
