SMSTS.Log – App policy not received. Make sure the application is marked for dynamic app install

In my customers SCCM 2012 environment I have noticed a nice little Bug in SCCM 2012.

In a SCCM 2012 Task Sequence, we have a Task Sequence Step, which installs SCCM-Applications by using a variable list.
At this Step, the Task Sequence stops with the following error in SMSTS.log:

App policy for ‘Test-Application’ not received. Make sure the application is marked for dynamic app install
Policy download failed, hr=0x80004005

Failed to run the action: Install Application.
Unspecified error (Error: 80004005; Source: Windows)

After doing some research I found out that, the MDT 2013 Integration was the Problem.
If you have created some SCCM-Application and implement those in a Task Sequence to install the SCCM-Applications by using variable list
all things will run well.

However, if you perform a MDT 2013 integration after that, you will fall in to the bug showing above in the SMSTS.LOG, and your TS will failed.

Solution:
There is no Bug fix provided by Microsoft. The three things you can do to work around that issue:

  • Do not integrate MDT in SCCM 2012
  • Create your SCCM-Application after your MDT integration
  • Re-create or copy your SCCM-Applications with MDT integrated.

 

Have fun.

    I have this problem and have recreated the applications after MDT integration but the error still happens. This only affects applications, not packages.
    Anything I am missing?

      Hi Xavier,
      you are right. This only affects applications and only when you use a Task Sequence with a Step “Install Applications” and you use a variable list to install your applications.
      After you recreated the apps, have you change them in the task sequence? Have you delete the old version of this app?

      cheers
      Chris
