InActive SCCM Client: Failed to send registration request message. Error: 0x80040154

In this case, the systems had successful SCCM client installed, but the status remained In-Active despite several attempts of re-pushing the client and WMI remediation. One of the log files, “ClientIDManagerStartup.log” showed the below error messages:

0X80040154

[RegTask] – Client is not registered. Sending registration request for GUID:00XXX000-X00X-000X-0000-00XX00X000X0 …

RegTask: Failed to send registration request message. Error: 0x80040154

RegTask: Failed to send registration request. Error: 0x80040154

RESOLUTION:

This problem occurs if the MessageSizeThreshold value on the client is set to a value that is too low. For example, this problem may occur if the MessageSizeThreshold value is set to 5 or less.
