  2. For me, it takes on average less than 30 minutes to image a system with apps like Office 365, AD join, Bitlocker encryption, etc. Also, there or significant advantages to using task sequences over the old pre-built images. Technology has changed a lot since 2014, though. I'll give you an update for 2021 with this. I've imaged at least 100 systems via task sequence at roughly the same time without Multicast without delay or any other issue. I don't think SCCM now called MECM has a software limit, and I agree with the only limit being network speed and hardware.
  3. What exactly isn't working for you? Also remember that the BIOS version is a string not a number too.
  4. Introduction In a previous blog post I explained how you could use the SendGrid resource in Azure to send emails, and with a PowerShell script create an Intune app to give end users additional options when resetting their Windows Autopilot provisioned pc. This app would gather the Autopilot diagnostic logs (and other relevant logs) and send an email to your support inbox prior to resetting the pc. I've now updated the code quite a few times with the following changes. modified text boxes to 'read' better modified warnings to make it clear when a device might become unboot
  5. Our SCCM DB is on an AAG. When it fails over to one node we get the error: An error occurred in the Microsoft .NET Framework while trying to load assembly id 65541. The server may be running out of resources, or the assembly may not be trusted. Run the query again, or check documentation to see how to solve the assembly trust issues. For more information about this error: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'smssqlclr, Version= when we set trustworthy on and change the DB owner, it works... but when it fails over to the other node... the other n
  6. I need to create a Collection based on Model and BIOS version above 1.7 I try following query but it doesnt show any machine. I have check few machine and I can see that BIOS version is 1.6.x select distinct SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId inner join SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS on SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.Resour
  7. You are looking at the console; that's a custom view, which is only available for reporting or the console; that "last online time" simply doesn't exist in the database as a "let's write wql queries against, for collection queries". Basically I'm saying don't try to use it for a collection query. The console is pretty and all... but I don't rely on it myself. MANY things in the console are based on summarization tasks. If you are in a smallish company (at least, smaller than what I have to deal with); sure, those summarization schedules and tasks complete efficiently and successfully
  8. Hello everybody, Is it possible to create an ADR and take several update products with it? For example 1809 updates and the Office 2016 updates? Thanks!

  10. Make sure the MW is ENABLED. If you have these configured, but the checkbox is not checked, the MW is disabled and ignored. I was able to find this by running this report : Monitoring=> Overview=> Reporting => Reports =>Software Distribution -Collections => Maintenance windows available to a specified Client Here I saw that the MW was DISABLED, et voila, I had the explanation why my clients ignored the MW.
  11. the best thing for you to do for now is to create a lab environment, three or four virtual machines, where you can learn SCCM and understand how it works and practice things before doing them in 'production'. Start with this guide.
  12. Hi anyweb, thanks for your reply and apologies for the delay in acknowledging it. As I say, I'm very new to SCCM and have even less knowledge of Powershell or other languages (I know, I've really been dropped in the deep end here!), so I'm really limited to using my small knowledge of SCCM to get this working. Thank you for the advice.
  13. Well, there you go, you will need to create your own powershell/VBS script to do the detection. And move the data to an area that CM can inventory. Once you do that you can have CM inventory the data. This might not be a simple task as it will depend on if the users are Admin on their computer or not.
  14. i would ignore that for now, your MP is way more important.
  15. ok There are SMS_MULTICAST_SERVICE_POINT messages on DP&MP. is it important ? is it ignore?
  16. start by checking your MP (management point), you need that working before dealing with any other issues MP Control Manager detected MP is not responding to HTTP requests. The http error is 12002. Possible cause: MP service is not started or not responding. Solution: Manually restart the SMS Agent Host service on the MP. Possible cause: IIS service is not responding. Solution: Manually restart the W3SVC service on the MP. log file retetion is explained here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/hierarchy/about-log-files
  17. Thanks , btw I have uploaded some error messages above my message. is it ok ? Also , btw , what does it do this mp_statusreceiver log file ? is there any retention period for this log file ?
  18. It worked! I ran the setup program with those files and this time it successfully installed. So, I finally managed to create the lab environment and test everything in the last days. Once again, thank you so much for your help!
  19. Hi Garth, I tried the trick with ospp.vbs as I used to on Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 but as our licenses are activated from the cloud it's like not working. This is the output I get: To find them we can check on the existence of the folder and tokens created in -> \AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Licensing But this is per user.
  20. I went to this link, which has another article from TechNet, Unfortunately this article is gone . probably I will search on "how to disable the secure boot"
  21. Earlier
  22. ok, I will bite, why isn't this doable for you? Are you trying to say this doesn't work for you because of the cloud lic?
