Well, it is easy to understand when you know why, but here is the short story.
In ACT we create an MSI file that we then run on clients to inventory applications and device drivers. When we install the MSI an agent runs and collect information which is then send to a file share. It will then be processed by the local ACT logging service and inserted into the DB. So, what is the problem then? Easy, the database does not have fields for the SP1 version of the OS…
The symptoms are:
1. All files are processed but ends up in the Failed folder
2. In the event viewer it gives you:
ACTUPLOAD: Microsoft.ApplicationExperience.Common.ObjectFramework.PersistenceException: Persistence_FlushSqlError —> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The INSERT statement conflicted with the FOREIGN KEY constraint "Logical_Machine_OS_ForeignKey".

So finally, the new book is out. This book is about server deployment using MDT 20120 Update 1. In this book we show you how how to create ref images for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003 and trust me, 2003 is not even close to be funny in this case. We also show you how to deploy them with real drivers and real applications. We have created plenty of task sequences so most of the different server roles are included. We also have something around SCVMM, it is basically an image in SCVMM, but then we use MDT 2010 as a task sequence engine to finalize the configuration. A very nice combo. Just a short note, even I you primary target is client, this book could give you some tips and tricks.
– If we have started the next book, Vol III?
– Yes, we have….
