The SCCM 0x1 1 error code indicates that there is a problem with the way that the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is configured. This can be caused by a number of factors, including incorrect settings in the SCCM console or a corrupt SCCM database. In either case, the result is that SCCM is unable to communicate with the site server or clients, which can prevent it from managing devices and deploying software updates.

One potential way to fix the SCCM 0x1 1 error is to reset the SCCM site server. This can be done by running the "Reset Site Server" task in the SCCM console. This will delete all data on the site server, so it should only be used as a last resort. If the reset is successful, the SCCM 0x1 1 error should be resolved.

Users typically search for a solution by asking about:

  • the software change returned error code 0x1 1
  • sccm 0x1 1
