Troubleshooting MP on SCCM 2012 R2

Hi!

These days I’m going to upgrade a SCCM 2012 R2 to SCCM 1511 CB.

Checking the environment I see problems with the Management Point.

Verifying the mpcontrol.log I saw errors like these:

Call to HttpSendRequestSync failed for port 80 with status code 500, text: Internal Server Error SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER

Http test request failed, status code is 500, ‘Internal Server Error’. SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER  584 (0x0248) STATMSG: ID=5436 SEV=E LEV=M SOURCE=”SMS Server” COMP=”SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER

To fix it I give user rights over C:\Program Files\SMS_CCM\SMS_MP folder and enabled directory browsing on SMS_MP web directory.

To verify I went to http://localhost/sms_mp/.sms_aut?mplist and http://localhost/sms_mp/.sms_aut?MPCert. It showed info correctly.

Regards!
