MP Control Manager detected management point is not responding to HTTP requests. The HTTP status code and text is 401, Unauthorized

“MP Control Manager detected management point is not responding to HTTP requests. The HTTP status code and text is 401, Unauthorized”

I have a Management Point that when I view it in Site Status in the Console (MonitoringOverviewSystem StatusSite Status) it’s Status is showing as Critical. It is also reporting Error Status Message ID 5436.

If I look in mpcontrol.log I am seeing:

Call to HttpSendRequestSync failed for port 80 with status code 401, text: Unauthorized
Http test request failed, status code is 401, 'Unauthorized'.

I have tried all kinds of things such as removing and reinstalling the MP, running the prerequisite check for the MP to make sure I haven’t missed anything there, and even a Site Reset all without success.

The Cireson Portal for Configuration Manager – Coming Soon!

Ever wished for a web front end to ConfigMgr / SCCM to help make both your and the users of the ConfigMgr Console lives easier?

Well Cireson have just announced their new Portal for Configuration Manager which is a web-based experience to help manage and standardize daily tasks outside of the native Configuration Manager console.

I’ve been playing with a beta and am very impressed with it and I can see it being of great use to many organisations that ideally don’t want people using the ConfigMgr Console, but don’t have a choice as they need access to it for their job.

For a taste of what’s coming head on over to the following page where you can signup for first priority access to be kept informed of progress and receive information as it becomes available:

http://go.cireson.com/cireson-portal-for-configmgr

Plus if you scroll all the way to the bottom you can watch a video Wally has put together giving you an overview of the Portal.

Want to know more? Why not sign up to for a tour of the new Portal that Wally is giving next Wednesday (7th December) in his free webinar and see for yourself the huge benefits the Portal can bring to you and your organisation.
