Error number Description

0x80004003

A required parameter has a value of Nothing.

0x80070057

A parameter is outside the valid range.

0x800700B7

The management group already exists.

0x80070005

There are insufficient permissions to add a management group. The caller of this method must be an administrator.

When the method returns, the management group is registered but it is not yet active with the agent. To activate the management group, either call ReloadConfiguration Method or restart the System Center Management Service.

On failure of this method, the existing settings of the agent will not be modified on Windows Vista and Windows 7. On Windows Server 2003, the method will attempt to either make all modifications or no modifications. However, in some cases this may not be possible. In these cases, RemoveManagementGroup Method should be called to clean up the failed add.

Platforms: Requires Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008

Version: Requires System Center 2012 – Operations Manager
