SetComputerDescription tries to set blank description

May 9, 2014 at 11:16 AM
Hi, I'm using version 7.3 of the deployment website, SCCM 2007 and MDT 2012. When pushing an image I'm prompted for OU and Description and I can see both of these entries in the database. Moving to a new OU works but when trying to set the description it tires to set a description of "", obviously it can't set this and fails.

I'm wondering why it would take the value, store it in the DB but not read that back. The user has been set to have DBreader and DBWriter access to the DB and if performed manually via the webpage (ad.asmx) the description is changed.

The errors I get are:
