Problem:

I’ve sent a Package to upgrade my SMS 2003 Clients to ConfigMgr 2007 but when I run the “Status of an advanced client distribution report” I’m seeing some machines reporting as “Failed” under the “Status of Targeted Resources“.

Drilling down I see a large number of machines reporting “Program failed (unexpected restart)“. How do I resolve this?

Resolution:

You don’t need to as this machine will have been upgraded and this is normal behaviour.

The reason for the error is during the Client upgrade CCMExec needs to be restarted. When this happens the “error” message is generated.
