Failed to resolve the source for SMS PKGID=xxxxxxxx, hr=0x80070002

When using the Microsoft Toolkit package in a Task Sequence it might fail with the following error;

Failed to resolve the source for SMS PKGID=xxxxxxxx, hr=0x80070002

This is known by Microsoft and they are working on a solution!

In the meantime, there’s an easy fix to solve this.
In the beginning of your TS, add the following two variables and set the corresponding value:

  • SMSTSDownloadRetryCount = 5
  • SMSTSDownloadRetryDelay = 15

I will update this post when the fix is released if it comes as a CU or Hotfix!

  1. This is great! I’ve been experiencing this exact same thing. Odd that it happens sporadically. Gonna use this workaround until MS comes up with a permanent fix. Hopefully in the upcoming CU1 release.

      I know, can’t find any real reson for it either when lookig through the logs.
      Hopefully there will be a fix soon since I like the TS as clean as possible without any additional variables or steps.

      Normaly you just restart the TS, thinking it’s something temporary, so I doubt many people think twice before realizing it’s a real problem 🙂
