Even my Windows Firewall is turned off still get the following warning message every hour. I can telnet to port 1433 & 4022 successfully. This is co-located SQL server on the primary site server.
SMS_HIERARCHY_MANAGER reports (Message ID=3353): “Hierarchy Monitoring detected that the ConfigMgr SQL Server <fqdn> ports 1433, 4022, are not active on Firewall exception.”

Hierarchy Monitoring detected that the ConfigMgr SQL Server

 <fqdn>ports 1433,4022, are not active on Firewall exception. 


Can we please get a Registry key setup to prevent this message from being generated. This cause the 
CM12 site  to always be in a warning state, when the firewall is disabled. Thereby making the making the 
site stat useless!
SMS_HIERARCHY_MANAGER reports (Message ID=3353):
"Hierarchy Monitoring detected that the ConfigMgr SQL Server <fqdn> ports 1433,4022, are not active on 
Firewall exception."

I suggest that following:
Under the following Registry key:

Create a Dword value called: IgnoreSQLFirewallPorts
When this value is set to 1 , the above message will never be generated

Message ID 2719:
Inventory Data Loader failed to process the file D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\auth\\Process\HDD6EP0U.MIF because it is larger than the defined maximum allowable size of 5000000.
Solution: Increase the maximum allowable size, which is defined in the registry key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Components\SMS_INVENTORY_DATA_LOADER\Max MIF Size (the default is 5 MB), and wait for Inventory Data Loader to retry the operation

This is an easy fix.

  1. On the CM12 Site Server, open regedit.exe.
  1. Drill down to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Components\SMS_INVENTORY_DATA_LOADER.
  1. Find Max MIF Size and double click it.
  1. Change the value to 3200000 (Hex), which is 50 MB. By the way, the actual default value is 4c4b40 (hex) or 5000 kilobytes which is just under 5 MB.
  1. Close regedit.exe and clear out any errors/warnings for SMS_INVENTORY_DATA_LOADER.
