The Software Replicator is blank after launch. No Organizational Groups or Software is listed to be exported. In the log the following error is thrown:

CreateTree: select distinct i.Name, i2.Name from ScopeCollection sc join Item i on i.Guid = sc.ScopeSetGuid join ScopeMembership sm on sc.ScopeCollectionGuid = sm.ScopeCollectionGuid join Item i2 on i2.Guid = sm.ScopeCollectionGuid where lower(i.Name) <> ('default') or (lower(i.Name) = 'default' and (LOWER(i2.Name) in ('software component','software release','service pack','software update' ))) order by 1, 2

This is caused by an Organizational Group missing the Name field in the Item table.


Before looking for other resolutions, make sure you are logged onto the SMP server with the Application Identity account.

First, run the following query to locate the blank named Organizational Groups:

SELECT DISTINCT [Name], Guid FROM ScopeCollection
JOIN Item ON Guid = ScopesetGuid
WHERE [Name] is = ''

For each GUID that is returned, run the following query:

SET [Name] = 'Rename Me'
WHERE Guid = 'guid found from prevoius query'
