While installing the latest Configuration Manager update, I encountered a new prerequisite check warning “Co-Mgmt slider is not pointed to Intune”. In this post, I will explain why you see this warning during the prerequisite check in SCCM and the steps to resolve this.
The prerequisite check is typically run when upgrading Configuration Manager to a new version or installing a new hotfix. During the prerequisite check, Configuration Manager performs several tests to see if the upgrade or hotfix installation can be completed without encountering any issues or warnings.
When attempting to upgrade to SCCM 2211, most admins noticed a new warning during the prerequisite check related to Co-Management workload. The warning was new to many yet worrisome, even though it didn’t stop the upgrade.
The warning appears when you perform an upgrade to version 2211 or later and hotfix installation for ConfigMgr version 2211 or later. For instance, the screenshot below shows the warning appearing during the prerequisite check step while installing the ConfigMgr 2211 hotfix rollup KB16643863. I must mention that even though you haven’t enabled the co-management or tenant attach for your ConfigMgr site, you’ll still encounter this warning.
Let’s look at some details as to why you get this specific warning during prerequisite check. Meanwhile, take a look at some common prerequisite check warnings and errors that you may encounter during the SCCM upgrade or installation of hotfixes.

Fix SCCM Co-Mgmt slider is not pointed to Intune
The SCCM prerequisite check warning “Co-Mgmt slider is not pointed to Intune” appears for co-managed clients if the resource access workload is on Configuration Manager. If the resource access slider is towards Configuration Manager, they are not tested or supported in version 2203. To resolve this issue, you must slide Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Intune.
Important: This warning will not affect your upgrade. It just used to remind that the following features will be completely removed in SCCM 2211.
- Certificate profiles, including the certificate registration point site system role
- VPN profiles
- Wi-Fi profiles
- Windows Hello for Business settings
- Email profiles
- The co-management resource access workload
INFO: Prerequisite rule 'Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Configuration Manager is no longer supported' will run for easysetup upgrade. WARNING: Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Configuration Manager is no longer supported; Warning; Slide Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Intune. Remove the certificate registration point site system role and all policies for company resource access features in Configuration Manager. These features are no longer supported as of March 2022 in Configuration Manager. Company resource access includes email, certificate, VPN, Wi-Fi, and Windows Hello for Business profiles.
The warning clearly states that Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Configuration Manager is no longer supported. You must slide Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Intune to get this warning fixed.
How to Slide Co-Mgmt Workload Slider for Resource Access Policies towards Intune
To slide SCCM co-management workload slider for resource access policies towards Intune, perform the following steps:
- In the Configuration Manager console, go to the Administration workspace, expand Cloud Services, and select the Cloud Attach node.
- Select the co-management object, and then choose Properties in the ribbon.
Switch to the Workloads tab. Look for Resource access policies workload and move the slider to Intune. Click Apply and OK.
You must re-run the prerequisite check from the Configuration Manager console after completing the above steps. This time, the co-mgmt workload slider warning doesn’t appear any more.
What happens after you slide Co-Management workload slider for resource access policies towards Intune?
Co-management behavior is the same as if you used Configuration Manager 2111 or earlier to switch the resource access workload to Intune. This Workload slider will be disabled, and you can only use Microsoft Intune to deploy resource access profiles in upcoming Configuration Manager versions.
