How to Handle Configuration Manager Asynchronous Errors by Using WMI


Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

In System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, when an error occurs in an asynchronous call, the error object is passed as the second parameter to the OnCompleted method. Inside your OnCompleted implementation, you check the error object the same as you would for a synchronous call.

You determine if there is an error by checking the HResult parameter of the OnCompleted method.


This VBScript sample displays error information if there is a error during an asynchronous operation. To test, change the query to an invalid query such as Select * From ?????.

For information about calling the sample code, see Calling Configuration Manager Code Snippets.

Sub sink_OnCompleted(HResult, oErr, oCtx)
    WScript.Echo "All collections returned"

    if HResult <> 0 Then 
    ' Determine the type of error.
        If oErr.Path_.Class = "__ExtendedStatus" Then
            WScript.Echo "WMI Error: "& oErr.Description            
        ElseIf ExtendedStatus.Path_.Class = "SMS_ExtendedStatus" Then
            WScript.Echo "Provider Error: "& oErr.Description
            WScript.Echo "Code: " & oErr.ErrorCode
        End If
    End If    
    bdone = true
End sub

.NET Framework Security

Using script to pass the user name and password is a security risk and should be avoided where possible.
