  2. Hi, Been all over the net, can't find anything at all in relation to this. Brand new 1902 setup on 2019 server -- and I can't get PXE boot working whatsoever. Always getting: Configuration Manager is looking for policy. I've tried the countless suggestions here and elsewhere, and i still can't fix it. Here's my SMSPXE.log I've rebuilt the boot image, ensured boundaries and all else work. I can deploy an application to systems, so I'm sure my boundaries are right, not sure what else i'm missing? Thanks, smspxe.log
  3. I recently upgraded my SCCM environment to 1902, I then did a 1903 Feature update to a laptop which was successful. I made the Products and Classification change in SCCM to make Windows 10 1903 software updates available. I created a deployment packed that included 1903 updates and deploy it to a combination of Windows 7, 10 1803 and 1903 devices. The Windows 7 and 10 1803 devices applied the updates successfully but both of the 1903 devices are giving me a message in software Center that there are "Insufficient Permissions for Software Installation, Your IT department has set restrictions for this software that prevent it from installing on your computer." Has anyone else run into this?
  4. Hi, I have upgraded SCCM from 1802 to 1902 and Applications no longer install within the Task Sequence has anyone else experienced this? I am also having issues with PXE: RequestMPKeyInformation: Send() failed. PXE::MP_InitializeTransport failed; 0x80004005 PXE::MP_LookupDevice failed; 0x80070490 PXE Provider failed to initialize MP connection. Element not found. (Error: 80070490; Source: Windows) PXE has been reinstalled on the DP Several Times looks like more of a MP issue though Any Help will be much appreciated. (I have logged a ticket with MS premier Support) Thanks

  6. I just updated our Windows 10 image with the newest 1903 version. Previously in my 1803 image, I used a cmd to turn off User Account Control during the task sequence using the following: cmd.exe /c reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /v "EnableLUA" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f That had been working just fine. I took the exact same OS Task Sequence and just changed the OS image package and now every user, including administrators, are prompted when an .exe runs. (specifically whoami) which puts username, IP, ect on the desktop which makes supporting these devices much easier. Running other .exe's don't bring up this prompt from what I can tell so far. I verified UAC is actually set to not notify. Why does this app bring up the notification every time?
  7. I get this error. The file do exist in the folder... How to fix this?? Server 2012 R2
  8. Hello! Can someone advise me how can I configure MDT Deployment Workbench Monitoring for SCCM MDT Task Sequences? I went through the guides online, and they ask to create a new Deployment Share in MDT - but I already have an existing SCCM MDT Task Sequence and content, so I won't be using the MDT's Deployment Share. Nonetheless, I created a Deployment Share in MDT, and also enabled Monitoring, however - There is no option to select 'what' is monitored (which logs folder/SCCM task sequence) Nothing appears even after completing some task sequences Can it even monitor SCCM MDT task sequences? Or it can only work with MDT task sequences (no SCCM)?
  9. can you attach your ztigather.log and any other applicable log so i can take a look.

  11. what i meant was to browse the location on your pc where customsettings.ini was referenced, does the file indeed look correct, contenwise?
  12. i only have the 1, i have searched through the entire server trying to find another one. When i have looked at the logs i can see it is running through the rules but is still no applying
  13. are you sure it's looking at the customsettings.ini that you created or another one..
  14. Hi, I have the below custom setting file. The issue is it is not being applied on my builds. When i check the logs they state that the file has been processed successfully. Its like the rules get completely ignored [Settings] Priority=Init, ByDesktop, ByLaptop, DefaultGateway, Default Properties=ComputerLocationName, ComputerTypeName, ComputerSerialNumber [Init] ComputerSerialNumber=#Right("%SerialNumber%",10)# [ByLaptop] SubSection=Laptop-%IsLaptop% ComputerTypeName=L [ByDesktop] SubSection=Desktop-%IsDesktop% ComputerTypeName=D [DefaultGateway] [Blanked] ComputerLocationName=blanked [Blanked] ComputerLocationName=blanked [Blanked] ComputerLocationName=blanked [Default] OSInstall=Y ComputerLocationName=XXX ComputerTypeName=X OSDComputerName=%ComputerLocationName%%ComputerTypeName%%ComputerSerialNumber% SkipCapture=YES SkipAdminPassword=YES SkipProductKey=YES SkipComputerBackup=YES SkipBitLocker=YES
  15. Hi all, It's been a little while since I posted on here! Hope everyone is doing good! I'm after some advice on SCCM and Default Apps being reset on deployment... it's a bit of a weird one, so bear with me! I'm running the latest SCCM CB version (1902 w/o the hotfix). I've been deploying Windows 10 Pro 1809 with it. This is a custom image from the Windows 10 ISO, installed, apps all installed, then used the SCCM Capture Media to take a copy and deploy. Following the deployment (lack of user testing as well), we've now started to notice the users custom settings are not being honoured when logging back in. For example, if you set the default browser to Chrome, log off and back on, it's set back to Edge. Same for Adobe with PDF's, and also Default Printers as well... Now, the weirdest part is that this doesn't happen right away. A freshly imaged machine, log on, set your preference, log off, log back on, and you're good. Log off, wait 10-15 mins, log back on, and it's reset, and any subsequent logins reset it too (you can see it in the shell event logs where it's resetting). This is leading me to believe that SCCM is doing some kind of configuration to the machines post deployment. If I create a machine using the .wim from the Windows disk, and install Chrome during OSD, same results as above. If I create a machine manually, without SCCM, install Chrome manually, this actually works as expected, and no resets are seen. I've installed a machine with SCCM, then removed the client from it, still does the same thing, so it looks like something is being enforced during the OSD itself. If I take the machine out of the OU's with the group policy's, it still resets (regardless of whether a Domain Admin or Domain User logs on, it will reset that users preferences. I'm at the point where I need to call M$ to see what's going on, and see if they can work it out, but I thought I'd try here first! Just to add, I've also tried Windows 10 Pro 1903 as well, and it has the same result :(. Banging my head against a wall here :(. I have no GPO's enforcing default Apps (with or without the XML settings we're now forced to use). There is nothing on SCCM showing as it would cause this... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Phil
  16. Hi, I have to deploy windows updates on critical servers which gets patched very rarely due to some team dependency. I have SCCM CB 1706 installed. My client set below conditions: 1. Updates should get downloaded beforehand 48 hours actual Installation date. 2. If needed, installation time may change. Deployment should accomodate that. 3. Deployment time is 2 hours for 1 batch. So in case if deployment gets carried over 2 hours, second batch should not start. How to achieve this 1. Without maintenance window 2. With maintenance window 3. Any other way apart from above 2 options
  17. Thanks for the great series. But I have wound up being not able to install agents on clients. This is probably because clients can't access \\CM01\SMS_MPL\Client. (MPL being my sitecode). Can you recommend a document describing required permissions for this environment. I assume I simply need to drop my users group into a local group on CM01 but some experimenting has brought no joy yet and I am loath to do anything with permissions I can't immediately back out of.
  18. awesome ! glad to see you using the SCCM labs and smoothwall too
  19. Yay! Adding Legacy NICs solved the problems it seems. I have powered off and restarted VM two times and no NIC config prompt appeared. Thanks a ton!:)
  20. you need to use legacy nic's for smoothwall, at least that's what i use
  21. Gen1 VM. Ohh.. I am Not using Legacy NIC. Is that causing problem? Let me check and revert. Thanks for quick reply.
  22. hmm odd, what type of vm did you create (gen1 or gen2) and are you using Legacy NICs ?
  23. Hi All, I am following SCCM CB guides by Niall which are excellent source of SCCM LAB setup & I recommend my juniors to start with it their SCCM journey. I saw SmoothWall as router for this ( or I think PKI Lab) & I configured it. I am able to get internet access to my VMs. The only irritating part is whenever I restart the VM (after doing poweroff from cmd prompt), while loading OS, I get prompt to reconfigure NICs as they have changed. I initially suspected this because I am using Hyper-V and NIC setting for MAC address was Dynamic which is default. I changed it to static but no difference. I still get the prompt. Is any other config change needed for to retain NIC and MAC address mappings? I am using Windows 10 Pro- Hyper-V for setting Lab. Please see below screenshot of the prompt.
  24. Hi, I was wondering if its possible to add one more than one user/group to the SQL admins on the script? eg: "TEST\Administrator" " "TEST\SQL_Admin" "TEST\Domain Admins" "BUILTIN\Administrators" Thanks
