Error evaluating SQL Server 2012 from SQL 2008 CMS

Hi there,

We got the error below when evaluating database setting policy on SQL 2012 from 2008 CMS:
Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.PolicyEvaluationException: Exception encountered while executing policy '2012 DB Settings'. ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.<?char 13?> at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.Condition.Evaluate(Object target, AdHocPolicyEvaluationMode evaluationMode)<?char 13?> at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.ObjectSet.CalculateTargets(IEnumerable objectSet, Condition condition, AdHocPolicyEvaluationMode evaluationMode, Object[]& conforming, TargetEvaluation[]& violating)<?char 13?> at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.ObjectSet.CalculateTargets(SqlStoreConnection targetConnection, Condition condition, AdHocPolicyEvaluationMode evaluationMode, String policyCategory, Object[]& conforming, TargetEvaluation[]& violating)<?char 13?> at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Dmf.Policy.EvaluatePolicyUsingConnections(AdHocPolicyEvaluationMode evaluationMode, SfcQueryExpression targetQueryExpression, Int64& historyId, ISfcConnection[] targetConnections)<?char 13?> --- End of inner exception stack trace

Any idea what's causing it?

Thanks,
Mary
