SCCM SP2 r2 is locking folders under installation of deployed packages
Posted on 2014-11-20
I got a potentially huge problem.
We recently discovered that under an installation of a deployed package to a computer, the c:\program files\<name of folder that installation creates> on the computer, is beeing locked. The installation hangs. msiexec.exe hangs. The installation will not proceed - or even fail.
Even though we have a timeout that says if an installation is not finished within 2 hour, SCCM should stop the installation, the installation still hangs. It could go on for days, if we don't manually stop it.
This recently happened for our Java and Adobe Reader packages that we deployed. This was for about 2 weeks ago.
This problem caused a lot of requests to our 1st line supportcentre.
What could cause this?
