SCCM: Task Sequence Import fails (System.NullReferenceException)
March 22, 2017
Posted by on
I am leading a Windows 10 migration project currently. We prepared TAsk Sequences in Dev environment and SCCM admin tried to export/import them from Dev to Prod. Export was successfull, but Import miserably failed with
Object Reference not set to an instance of an object.
As usual very nice and descriptive SCCM error.
Fortunately Mike Terrill bumped into it before and wrote about it: https://miketerrill.net/2016/07/31/import-task-sequence-failure-cm-1606/
Note: When we tried to open a zip file containing TS archive using internal Windows Zip packer it failed. We used 7zip – it opens/saves the archive successfully.
