  1. Thanks for your guidance, it is a very helpful! I did all the steps on my test infrastructure, though I had a reduced set of virtual machines. It seems to me that there is an error in section 5 (maybe my comment will help other people) You suggest to execute the command: certutil -f -dspublish "E: \ ROOTCA_windows noob Root CA.crt" RootCA Where RootCA , as you write, is the host name of offline Root CA, however certutil helps us: CertUtil [Options] -dsPublish CertFile [NTAuthCA | RootCA | SubCA | CrossCA | KRA | User | Machine] ... CertFile - certificate file to publish NTAuthCA - Publish cert to DS Enterprise store RootCA - Publish cert to DS Trusted Root store SubCA - Publish CA cert to DS CA object CrossCA - Publish cross cert to DS CA object ... So RootCA in this case is not the host name here, but the store name. Your host name matches the store name, and your command has been executed. My Root CA name was different, and when I will have tried to execute the command certutil -f -dspublish "C:\from_RCA\RCA01_My-CA.crt" RCA01 i got an error CertUtil: -dsPublish command FAILED: 0x80070057 (WIN32: 87 ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER) CertUtil: The parameter is incorrect. however command certutil -f -dspublish "C:\from_RCA\RCA01_My-CA.crt" RootCA performed correctly. Next command in your manual certutil -f -dspublish "E: \ windows noob Root CA.crl" RootCA is correct, because to publish CRL you must specify the host name: CertUtil [Options] -dsPublish CRLFile [DSCDPContainer [DSCDPCN]] .... CRLFile - CRL file to publish DSCDPContainer - DS CDP container CN, usually the CA machine name

  3. To piggy back off this, talked to HP about this earlier today as well. Pre-release BIOS are available but they need to have it approved/signed off before providing it for testing purposes. I was told mid-April is their tentative release date for this. Anything with a kaby lake processor is having the UEFI PXE boot issues according to them or have had reports. They pointed to the G4 model laptops and the G3+ model desktop machines.

  5. Introduction This multi-part guide will show you how to install the latest baseline version of Configuration Manager from Microsoft. The latest available baseline version is System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) version 1902 as of April the 10th 2019. I blogged how to upgrade to 1902 here. This guide is aimed a new installations of SCCM. Baseline media is used to install new ConfigMgr sites or to upgrade from supported versions, for more information about baseline media please see my blog post here. Note: The SCCM 1902 Current Branch media is not yet available on MSDN or VLSC. When the new baseline media is released I'll update this note. This series is broken down into the following parts:- Part 1 - Get the lab ready, configure ADDS Part 2 - Join CM01 to Domain, add users, create the Systems Management container, delegate permission Part 3 - Role and Feature installation, installation of WDS and ADK Part 4 - Configure and install SQL Server 2017 (This part) Part 5 - Configure and install SCCM 1902 Current Branch Part 6 - Post configuration You can use this multi-part guide to get a hierarchy up and running on Windows Server 2019 using SQL Server 2017. The concept behind this is to guide you through all the steps necessary to get a working Configuration Manager Primary site installed (for lab use) using manual methods or automated using PowerShell. This gives you the power to automate the bits that you want to automate, while allowing you to manually do other tasks when needed. You decide which path to take. PowerShell knowledge is desired and dare I say required if you are in any way serious about Configuration Manager. I will show you how to do most steps via two methods shown below, it's up to you to choose which method suits you best but I highly recommend automating everything that you can, using PowerShell. Method #1 - Do it manually Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell Downloads The scripts used in this part of the guide are available for download here. Unzip to C:\Scripts. The scripts are placed in the corresponding folder (Part 1, Part 2 etc) and sorted into which server you should run the script on (DC01 or CM01). Scripts.zip Step 1. Install SQL Server 2017 Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator, I'd suggest you logon as the username matching your name. Method #1 - Do it manually In this section you will install SQL Server 2017 CU14 which is the latest supported version of SQL Server that is compatible with SCCM 1902 Current Branch as of 2019/4/16. For details about which versions of SQL Server are supported with different site systems in ConfigMgr, please see this page. Before starting, please configure the firewall as described in https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=94001 to allow access to SQL Server through the firewall. You can do this by executing the following command as local administrator on the CM01 (ConfigMgr) server. netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name = SQLPort dir = in protocol = tcp action = allow localport = 1433 remoteip = localsubnet profile = DOMAIN After configuring the firewall, browse to the drive where the SQL Server 2017 media is, and run setup.exe. The SQL Server Installation Center wizard will appear. Click on Installation and then choose New SQL Server standalone installation or add features to an existing installation. Enter the Product Key or use the evaluation version if that's what you want to use. Note: The product key will be automatically filled in for licensed media downloaded from Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center. Accept the EULA Make your Microsoft Update choices and review your Install rules, as long as you've opened the correct port for SQL you'll be ok and can safely ignore the Warning about the Firewall. select the SQL server instance features you need (at least Database Engine Services) and if necessary change the drive letter where you intend to install it And configure the Instance Configuration or just leave it as default Verify the Service Accounts settings and for Collation (click on the Collation tab in Server Configuration), make sure the collation is set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS For Database Engine Configuration, click on Add Current User After configuring Data Directories, TempDB and Filestream settings you are ready to install Click on Install to start the installation of SQL Server 2017, and once it's completed, click Close. Next download and install the following: SQL Server 2017 Cumulative Update 14. SQL Server 2017 SSMS here. SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell Note: Make sure your SQL Server 2017 media is in the drive specified in the script or edit the script to point to the new location of the media. The script set's the installation path pointing at D:\MSSQL if you want to install SQL somewhere else please change the variables as appropriate. To install SQL Server 2017 use the Install SQL Server 2017.ps1 script. The script will create a ConfigurationFile.ini used to automate the installation of SQL Server 2017, and after it's installed the script will download the SSMS executable (Management Studio) and install it. Then it will download Reporting Services and install it. If either of the EXE's are in the download folder, it will skip the download and just install. SQL Server no longer comes with the Management Studio or Reporting Services built in, and they are offered as separate downloads, don't worry though, my PowerShell script takes care of that for you. 1. Extract the scripts to C:\Scripts on CM01 and load the Install SQL Server 2017.ps1 script located in C:\Scripts\Part 4\CM01 2. Edit the variables [lines 17-81] as desired before running. 3. Logon as the user specified in line 20. 4. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. Done ! That's it for this part, please join me in Part 5 where we Configure and Install System Center Configuration Manager 1902.

  6. This series is comprised of different parts, listed below. Part 1 - Introduction and server setup Part 2 - Install and do initial configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 3 - Prepare the HTTP Web server for CDP and AIA Publication Part 4 - Post configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 5 - Installing the Enterprise Issuing CA Part 6 - Perform post installation tasks on the Issuing CA Part 7 - Install and configure the OCSP Responder role service Part 8 - Configure AutoEnroll and Verify PKI health (this part) In part 1 of this series, you configured your LAB for a 2 tier PKI hierarchy running on Windows Server 2016. You used PowerShell to create some virtual machines, and then installed Windows Server 2016, Windows 10 Enterprise version 1803 and optionally Smoothwall 3.1 before configuring the IP address scheme and Computer Names on the virtual machines. Finally you configured ADDS on DC01 so that you have a working Domain Controller for the rest of this LAB. In part 2 you installed and did the initial configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA. In part 3 you prepared the HTTP Web Server for CDP and AIA Publication and you created a DNS record for the publicly available web server. In part 4 you performed post configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA to set certificate revocation list (CRL) period registry settings using CertUtil, and then enabled object access Auditing and finally, you configured three locations for the Authority Information Access (AIA) and four locations for the Certificate revocation list Distribution Point (CDP), again using CertUtil. In part 5 you joined the IssuingCA computer to the windowsnoob domain before creating a new CAPolicy.inf file which was customized for the Issuing CA role. Next, you published the Root CA Certificate and CRL (both to Active Directory and the HTTP web server) and you installed the Enterprise Issuing CA before submitting a request to the StandAlone Offline Root CA. Next you installed the Issuing CA Certificate using the response files from the StandAlone Offline Root CA on the removable media. In part 6, you performed post installation and configuration of the IssuingCA server by configuring Certificate Revocation and CA Certificate Validity Periods, you then enabled auditing on the CA server, and configured the AIA and CDP. In part 7 you installed and configured the OCSP responder role service on the web server. Now you will configure Auto Enrollment and Verify PKI health. Step 1.Configure a GPO for Auto Enrollment Logon to to the Domain Controller (DC01) as windowsnoob\Administrator. Click Start, click Run, and then type gpmc.msc and press enter. Expand Forest, expand Domains, expand windowsnoob.lab.local, and then expand Group Policy Objects. Right click Default Domain Policy, then click Edit. Under Computer Configuration, expand Policies, expand Windows Settings, expand Security Settings, and then expand Public Key Policies. Select Certificate Services Client - Auto-Enrollment, right click and choose Properties. Change it from Not Configured to Enabled and enable the following 2 options. Renew expired certificates, update pending certificates, and remove revoked certificates Update certificate that use certificate templates As shown here. Click Apply when done, and close the Group Policy Management Editor and then close the Group Policy Management Console. Step 2. Configure AutoEnrollment for Workstation Authentication on the Issuing CA Ensure that you are logged on as windowsnoob\EntAdmin on the Issuing CA server (IssuingCA), start the Certification Authority console by entering certsrv.msc, ensure that windowsnoob Issuing CA is expanded. Right-click on Certificate Templates, then select Manage. In the Certificate Templates that appear, select Workstation Authentication. Right click it, and select Properties, click on the Security tab, select Domain Computers and ensure that AutoEnroll is selected, click Apply. Step 3. Join the Windows 10 computer to the domain Logon to Windows 10 version 1803 computer (Win101803) as Administrator, and copy the JoinDomain.ps1 script below to a folder called C:\Scripts. Open the script in PowerShell ISE as Administrator, then run Set-ExecutionPolicy to unrestricted before running the JoinDomain.ps1 PowerShell script by clicking on the Green Arrow in Windows PowerShell ISE. JoinDomain.ps1 Note: The computer will reboot by itself after joining the windowsnoob.lab.local domain. Step 4. Check PKI Health with Enterprise PKI To use the Enterprise PKI console to check PKI health, on the IssuingCA server, ensure that you are logged on as windowsnoob\entadmin. Run PKIView.msc from an administrative command prompt. Right click Enterprise PKI and then click Manage AD Containers. On the NTAuthCertificates tab, verify the windows noob Issuing CA certificate appears with a status of OK as shown below: On the AIA Container tab, verify both the windows noob Root CA and the windows noob Issuing CA certificates are present with a status of OK. On the CDP Container tab, verify that the windows noob Issuing CA has both Delta CRL and Base CRL, and that the windows noob Root CA has a Base CRL present and with a status of OK. On the Certification Authorities Container, verify that the windows noob Root CA certificate is present and with a status of OK. and finally on the Enrollment Services Container tab, verify that the windows noob Issuing CA certificate is present with a status of OK. Step 5. Configure Certificate Distribution on the Issuing CA To publish a certificate for computers in the enterprise do as follows. Logon to the IssuingCA computer as windowsnoob\EntAdmin. In the Certification Authority console (certsrv.msc), ensure that windows noob Issuing CA is expanded. Right-click Certificate Templates, select New and select Certificate Template to Issue. On the Enable Certificate Templates dialog box, select Workstation Authentication and then click OK. Step 6. verify certificate autoenrollment on the Windows 10 client To verify that autoenrollment of certificates on the Windows 10 compute do as follows. Log on to win101803.windowsnoob.lab.local as windowsnoob\Administrator. (Ensure that you switch user to log on as windowsnoob\Administrator) Click Start, type mmc and then press ENTER. Click File, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in. Click Certificates, then click Add, Select Computer Account, and then click Finish. Click OK. Expand Personal and select Certificates, if you do not see Certificates, in an Administrative Command prompt issue the following command gpupdate /force then refresh the view in the Certificates MMC. You should now see a Certificates folder and a certificate listed. This certificate was issued using AutoEnrollment which was configured above. Step 7. Verify PKI health on the issued certificate While logged on to W101803.windowsnoob.local.local as windowsnoob\Administrator, In the certificates console tree, expand Personal, click Certificates. In the details pane, right click the W101803.windowsnoob.lab.local certificate, click All Tasks, and then click Export. the Welcome to the certificate export wizard appears, click Next. Click Next at the No do not export the private key screen On the Export File Format page, click Next. [DER encoded binary X.509 (.CER) is the default selection]. in the File to Export, call it C:\Windows10 at the completing the certificate export wizard screen click Finish. you should be notified of the success of the export. Open an administrative command prompt and run the following commands: cd\ then certutil -URL C:\Windows10.cer The URL retrieval tool should appear. In the URL Retrieval Tool, select the OCSP (from AIA) option and then click Retrieve. Confirm that it shows status as Verified. In the URL Retrieval Tool, select the CRLs (from CDP) option and then click Retrieve. Confirm that it shows status as Verified. In the URL Retrieval Tool, select the Certs (from AIA) option and then click Retrieve. Confirm that it shows status as Verified. Click Exit to close URL Retrieval Tool. From the administrative command prompt run following command to thoroughly verify the certificate chain retrieval and revocation status. certutil -verify -urlfetch C:\Windows10.cer you'll see a lot of output similar to the following PS C:\> certutil -verify -urlfetch C:\Windows10.cer Issuer: CN=windows noob Issuing CA DC=windowsnoob DC=lab DC=local Name Hash(sha1):

  7. Hi, I reviewed the Task Sequence (for which thanks a million!) and I believe the reason for 'error 87:parameter is not correct' in two of the steps you disabled for the time being is the wrong dism parameter: DISM.exe /image:%OSDisk%\ /Set-UILanguage:%OSDUILanguage% that should be-> DISM.exe /image:%OSDisk%\ /Set-UILang:%OSDUILanguage% Similarly Set-UILanguageFallback should be changed to Set-UILangFallback. I did not have enough time to test that one myself yet but according to DISM documentation Set-UILang is the parameter name that exists.

  9. Update: please see this updated guide for SCCM 1802 CB, with SQL Server 2017. Introduction In a previous guide I showed you how to install System Center Configuration Manager version 1511 (Current Branch) on Windows Server 2012R2. Times are changing fast in this cloud-first mobile-first world, and as a result the System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) releases are being released rapidly. In addition to these releases are new Windows Server and SQL Server releases. Now that these new releases are all supported to run together, this guide will show you how to quickly install System Center Configuration Manager version 1606 (Current Branch) on Windows Server 2016 using SQL Server 2016, and then upgrade it to System Center Configuration Manager version 1610 (Current Branch). We use System Center Configuration Manager version 1606 (Current Branch) in this guide as it is the latest baseline version available on Microsoft's Volume License Service Center site (as of time of writing, December 2016). Some PowerShell knowledge is desired. I will show you how to do most actions manually as well as automated. Assumptions In this guide I assume you have already installed two workgroup joined servers running Windows Server 2016 (choose Windows Server 2016 Standard (Desktop Experience)) as listed below, and that you've configured the network settings. I also assume you have some knowledge of PowerShell, if you don't, start learning it now ! Server name: AD01 Server status: Workgroup joined IPv4 Address: 192.168.4.1 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.4.199 DNS: 192.168.4.1 Server name: CM01 Server status: Domain joined IPv4 Address: 192.168.4.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.4.199 DNS: 192.168.4.1 Server name: Smoothwall Server roles: A Linux firewall for sharing internet into these virtual machines, in hyperv you can add two legacy nics to achieve this. Scripts used in this guide The scripts used in this guide are available at the bottom of the guide in the Downloads section, download them before beginning and extract them to C:\scripts on your destination server(s). Step 1. Configure Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) Note: Perform the following on the AD01 as Local Administrator on the workgroup joined server. To setup Active Directory Domain Services you could manually click your way through the appropriate wizard in Server Manager or automate it using PowerShell. For your benefit I'll show you both methods below, all you have to do is choose which one suits you. Method #1 - Do it manually 1. To manually setup ADDS, in the start screen search for Server Manager 2. Click on Add roles and features, for Installation Type choose Role-based or Feature-based installation 3. For Server Selection choose the local server (AD01) 4. For Server Roles select Active Directory Domain Services and DNS Server, answer yes to install any required components. 5. Continue the the wizard and click Install, then click Close to complete the wizard. 6. After it's finished, perform the Post Deployment Configuration by clicking on Promote this server to a domain controller select the Add a new forest option, give it a root domain name such as windowsnoob.lab.local and click through the wizard, when prompted for the password use P@ssw0rd. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To configure ADDS automatically, use the ConfigureADDS.ps1 PowerShell script. 1. Copy the script to C:\scripts. 2. Edit the variables as desired before running. 3. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. Step 2. Join CM01 to the domain Note: Perform the following on the CM01 as Local Administrator on the workgroup joined server. Method #1 - Do it manually To join the domain manually, bring up the computer properties. Click on Change settings beside the computer name, click Change and enter the appropriate domain join details, reboot when done. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To join the domain automatically, use the joindomain.ps1 PowerShell script. 1. Copy the script to C:\scripts. 2. Edit the variables as desired before running. 3. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. Step 3. Create users Note: Perform the following on the Active Directory Domain Controller server (AD01) as Local Administrator You can do this step manually or automated using the supplied PowerShell script. Method #1 - Do it manually To create users manually, add the following users in AD using Active Directory Users and Computers: * <your user name>, a domain user, this user will become a local administrator on CM01 * Testuser, a domain user * CM_BA, used for building ConfigMgr created images * CM_JD, used for joining computers to the domain * CM_SR used for reporting services. * CM_CP, a domain user used when installing the Configuration Manager Client for Client Push. * CM_NAA, a domain user, (Network Access Account) used during OSD Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To create users automatically, use the Create Users Usergroups and OUs in AD.ps1 PowerShell script. Tip: You need to edit the script and adjust the variables to your liking, for example if you want to change the default password. You may also want to rem out the MDT and MBAM user/groups that are created and change some of the user names within the script. To rem out a line place a # in front of it. 1. Copy the script to C:\scripts. 2. Edit the variables [lines 68-80] as desired before running. 3. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. After running the PowerShell script in Windows PowerShell ISE you'll see something like the following. Step 4. Create the System Management Container Note: Perform the following on the Active Directory Domain Controller server (AD01) as Local Administrator For details of why you are doing this see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712264.aspx. Method #1 - Do it manually Open ADSI Edit, click on Action, Connect To and click Ok, Double Click on Default Naming Context and the DC= that appears below it. Click on the + and scroll down to CN=System. Right Click on CN=System and choose New, Object, choose Container from the options, click Next and enter System Management as the value as shown below Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To create the System Management container automatically, use the Create System Management container.ps1 PowerShell script. Step 5. Delegate Permission Note: Perform the following on the Active Directory Domain Controller server (AD01) as Local Administrator Method #1 - Do it manually Open Active Directory Users and Computers. Click on view, select Advanced Features. Select the System Management Container, and right click it, choose All Tasks and Delegate Control. When the Welcome to Delegation of Control Wizard appears click next, then click Add. click on Object Types, select Computers. Type in your Configuration Manager server name (CM01) and click on Check Names, it should resolve. Click Ok, then Next. Choose Create a Custom Task to Delegate, click next, make sure This folder, existing objects in this folder and creation of new objects in this folder is selected. Click next, select the 3 permissions General, Property-Specific and Creation-deletion of specific child objects are selected then place a check mark in Full Control. Tip: Repeat the above process for each site server that you install in a Hierarchy. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To delegate permissions to the System Management container automatically, use the Delegate Permissions.ps1 PowerShell script on CM01. That's right, on the ConfigMgr server. Step 6. Install Roles and Features on CM01 Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator To support various features in System Center Configuration Manager, the setup wizard requires some Server Roles and Features pre-installed. On CM01, login as the username you added to the Local Administrators group and navigate to C:\scripts. The XML files within the Scripts Used in This Guide.zip were created using the Export Configuration File option in Server Manager after manually installing roles and features and the accompanying PowerShell script simply installs it. Note: Make sure your Server 2016 media is in the drive specified in the script or edit the script to point to the location of the media. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To install the roles and features needed, start Windows Powershell ISE as Administrator and run the install roles and features.ps1 script. Step 7. Download and install Windows ADK 10 version 1607 Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator The ConfigMgr prerequisite checker will check for various things, including ADK components such as USMT and Windows Preinstallation Environment (amongst others), therefore you need to install Windows ADK on your server. To do so, either download ADKsetup from here and manually install it or run the setup ADK and WDS.ps1 PowerShell script to download and install the correct components for you. This script not only downloads the components needed, it's also installs ADK 10 and then installs Windows Deployment Services. The setup ADK and WDS.ps1 PowerShell script is available in the Scripts Used in this Guide zip file. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To download and then install Windows ADK 10 with the components needed, start Windows Powershell ISE as Administrator and run the setup ADK and WDS.ps1 script. Step 8. Install SQL Server 2016 Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator The following script will create a ConfigurationFile.ini used to automate the installation of SQL Server 2016, and after it's installed the script will download the SSMS exe (Management Studio) and install it. SQL Server no longer comes with the Management Studio and it's offered as a separate download, don't worry though, my PowerShell script takes care of that for you. Note: Make sure your SQL Server 2016 media is in the drive specified in the script or edit the script to point to the location of the media. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell To install SQL Server2016 use the Install SQL Server 2016.ps1 script. 1. Copy the script to C:\scripts. 2. Edit the variables [lines 17-75] as desired before running. 3. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. Step 9. SQL Memory Configuration Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator Depending on your memory configuration and server setup, you may also want to configure SQL memory limits as per the following guidance prior to installing ConfigMgr otherwise you'll get warnings in the Prerequisite checker when it runs the Server Readiness checks. Configuration Manager requires SQL Server to reserve a minimum of 8 gigabytes (GB) of memory for the central administration site and primary site and a minimum of 4 gigabytes (GB) for the secondary site. This memory is reserved by using the Minimum server memory setting under Server Memory Options and is configured by using SQL Server Management Studio. For more information about how to set a fixed amount of memory, see here. If your SQL Server is configured for unlimited memory usage, you should configure SQL Server memory to have a maximum limit. Method #1 - Do it manually Open Management Studio, select CM01, right click, choose Properties, select memory and configure the values as appropriate for your environment. Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell Use the following PowerShell in ISE on the server that you installed SQL Server 2016 on, thanks go to SkatterBrainz for the code snippet, you might want to adjust the $SqlMemMin and $SqlMemMax variables to suit your environment. $SqlMemMin = 8192 $SqlMemMax = 8192 [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName('Microsoft.VisualBasic') | Out-Null [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName('Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO') | Out-Null $SQLMemory = New-Object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server') ("(local)") $SQLMemory.Configuration.MinServerMemory.ConfigValue = $SQLMemMin $SQLMemory.Configuration.MaxServerMemory.ConfigValue = $SQLMemMax $SQLMemory.Configuration.Alter() Step 10. Restart the Server Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator Open an administrative command prompt and issue the following command: shutdown /r Step 11. Install the WSUS role Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator Now that SQL server is installed, we can utilize that for the WSUS database. To install WSUS and configure it to use the SQL servers database instead of the Windows Internal Database, do as follows: Method #1 - Do it manually <Coming soon> Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell Browse to the location where you extracted the scripts, C:\scripts. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as administrator, open the Install roles and features_WSUS.ps1 script, edit the $servername variable and replace CM01 with the ServerName your are installing ConfigMgr on (SQL server). Make sure to have your Windows Server 2016 SXS media in the path referred to by $Sourcefiles. Step 12. Download and extract the ConfigMgr content Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator To install System Center Configuration Manager version 1606 you'll need to download the content. You can download it from Microsoft's Volume license site for use in production or from MSDN for use in a lab. The VLSC download can be found be searching for Config and then selecting System Center Config Mgr (current branch and LTSB 1606) as shown below. Method #1 - Do it manually For the purposes of this guide I used the 1606 release from VLSC. This iso is named SW_DVD5_Sys_Ctr_ConfigMgrClt_ML_1606_MultiLang_ConfMgr_SCEP_MLF_X21-16461.ISO and is 1.20GB in size. Once downloaded, I mounted the ISO in Windows File Explorer and copied the contents to C:\Source\SCCM 1606 on CM01. Step 13. Download the ConfigMgr Prerequisites Note: Perform the following on the Configuration Manager server (CM01) as a Local Administrator You can download the prerequisites during ConfigMgr setup or in advance. As you'll probably want to install more than one copy of ConfigMgr (one lab, one production) it's nice to have the prerequisites downloaded in advance. To do that, open a PowerShell prompt with administrative permissions and navigate to the following folder: C:\Source\SCCM 1606\smssetup\bin\X64 Run the following line .\SetupDL.exe C:\Source\Downloads Tip: Browse to C:\source\SCCM 1606\SMSSETUP\TOOLS and double click on CMTrace.exe, answer Yes to the default logging question. Then, using Windows File Explorer, browse to C:\ and double click on ConfigMgrSetup.log which will open the log file in CMTrace. This will allow you to view any errors or problems with the download of the prerequisites in real time. Step 14. Extend the Schema Note: Perform the following on the Domain controller server (AD01) as Administrator. You do not have to extend the Active Directory schema if it was already extended for Configuration Manager previously. 1. Using Windows File Explorer on the Active Directory Domain Controller, browse to \\<server>\c$\Source\SCCM 1606\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 where <server> is your ConfigMgr server 2. locate extadsch.exe, right click and choose Run As Administrator. 3. A command prompt window will appear briefly as the schema is extended, check in C:\ for a log file called ExtADSch.log it should look similar to this Step 15. Install SCCM Current Branch (version 1606) Note: Perform the following on the ConfigMgr server (CM01) as Administrator. If you are NOT using eval (as in my example) then you need to add this section to the configuration.ini file [SABranchOptions] SAActive=1 CurrentBranch=1 Method #1 - Do it manually <Coming soon> Method #2 - Automate it with PowerShell You will need to edit the Install SCCM Current Branch version 1606.ps1 script and replace the variables inside with those that work in your environment. For example, to change the ProductId open the script in Windows ISE, locate the line that reads $ProductID= and either enter your ConfigMgr Product Key or use the evaluation version of ConfigMgr by entering the word EVAL. 1. Copy the script to C:\scripts. 2. Edit the variables [lines 16-17 & lines 32-57] as desired before running. 3. Start Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator and run the script by clicking on the green triangle. Once the script completes successfully, System Center Configuration Manager Current Branch (version 1606) is installed. Note: Currently there is a bug when using System Center Configuration Manager 1606 (Current Branch) and Windows ADK 1607 when used with Windows Server 2016 and SQL Server 2016, in that the boot images will not be created. The error shown in ConfigMgrSetup.log will be "ERROR: Failed to call method ExportDefaultBootImage. Error 0x80041013". If you experience this issue add your voice to Microsoft Connect ID 3116118. The solution at this point is to continue onto the next step and use Upgrades and Servicing to upgrade to System Center Configuration Manager 1610 (Current Branch). After completing that upgrade, the ADK 1607 boot images will be correctly added to ConfigMgr. Step 16. Upgrade to SCCM Current Branch (version 1610) Note: Perform the following on the ConfigMgr server (CM01) as Administrator. Method #1 - Do it manually As the upgrade process is a whole blog post by itself, please follow my guide here. Summary In this guide you used a lot of PowerShell to automate most of Installing System Center Configuration Manager Current Branch (version 1606), including installing and configuring SQL Server 2016 on Windows Server 2016. You then upgraded to version 1610 using Updates and Servicing. Related Reading Configuration Manager and the Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1607 here.

  11. In March 2017 I blogged a method to allow you to forcefully upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 10 computers to the latest version of Windows 10 using a popup (HTA) that gives the user some form of control (5 deferrals). Note: if you want to see how many days of support are left for Windows 7 extended support click here. This was very popular and spawned different versions of the same original concept by other MVP’s and the community at large. I always wanted to update mine, but never had time, however what I have done is incorporate bug-fixes and features, and rewritten the original VBS wrapper code to PowerShell. In the next version I’ll replace the HTA with a PowerShell gui. So how about listing the features of this solution. Designed to run as required Runs before the task sequence starts Shows the user a popup with options Can run on Windows 7 or Windows 10 Allows deferrals After deferrals run out, starts a 4 hour timer If the user ignores the popup, subtracts one deferral after 8 hours Checks for Power Checks for hard disc free space Checks for Supported Model Checks for VPN Is easy to Brand with your company details Has several checks to ensure it won’t run by accident So that’s enough of the features, here’s a look at what it will look like to the end user running either Windows 10 or Windows 7. Time to upgrade In the above screenshot, the user sees the popup daily at a time that you decide eg: 11am. The user has a number of choices: Upgrade now by clicking on the box ‘my files are backed up’, and then selecting Upgrade now Upgrade later by clicking on Defer Cancel, by clicking on the X in the top corner, this will remove one deferral. Note that this verifies how many deferrals are left and if there are none left, will start the task sequence Do nothing. The popup will auto close after 8 hours and remove one deferral. Kill it with Task Manager, this will remove one deferral. If the user runs out of deferrals the 4 hour timer will start. If the user still does nothing, when the 4 hours runs out the task sequence will begin. They can of course click the checkbox and select Upgrade now to start it at any time. Branding So how can you add your branding to it ? start with the banner.png. Open it in MSPaint and replace the windowsnoob logo with your own, try and keep it to 500×65 pixels otherwise you’ll need to edit the Upgrade.HTA code also. Next, open the wrapper.ps1 in PowerShell ISE. Edit CompanyName in line 15 to suit your Company Name. Save the changes, next, open upgrade.hta in Notepad ++. Edit CompanyName in line 50 to suit your company name. edit line 395, and put your company name in Troubleshooting The popup creates 3 log files in C:\ProgramData shown below Windows10RequiredUpgradeHTA.log Windows10RequiredUpgradeWrapper.log Windows10RequiredUpgradeStart-Upgrade.log The process creates registry keys (and deletes them upon successful closure of the HTA before starting the task sequence). For more details about how to set this up in your environment, please see the following blogpost. I’ve updated that blogpost to include the new files and the PowerShell wrapper.ps1. Note: To download the files included, you need to be a registered member of windows-noob.com cheers niall

  12. This series is comprised of different parts, listed below. Part 1 - Introduction and server setup (this part) Part 2 - Install and do initial configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 3 - Prepare the HTTP Web server for CDP and AIA Publication Part 4 - Post configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 5 - Installing the Enterprise Issuing CA Part 6 - Perform post installation tasks on the Issuing CA Part 7 - Install and configure the OCSP Responder role service Part 8 - Configure AutoEnroll and Verify PKI health Introduction Security is everywhere, and a core component of security is certificates. Public key infrastructure (PKI) is a set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption (1). In this series of guides I will show you how to set up a 2 tier PKI hierarchy running on Windows Server 2016 and you can use this to set up your own LAB so that you can learn about PKI and later use it for related System Center Configuration Manager roles such as Co-Management (3). Note: I don't claim to be an expert on PKI and would absolutely advise you to consult with a PKI expert if you plan on setting up PKI in production. This guide is designed to help you setup your LAB, it's based on a Windows Server 2012 R2 PKI guide on Technet from here and kudos to those guys for writing it (2). The difference here is you'll be using Windows Server 2016 and you'll see more screenshots and hints to guide you through the experience. I'd highly recommend you go through this entire series at least twice, just to get a feel for how PKI works and to become familiar with the terms involved. The first time you complete this series will probably feel laborious, however the second time you do it things will start to make sense and you'll have a better understanding of why you are doing it. This series will be tough to wrap your head around especially if you are new to PKI, but take it one part at a time, one step at a time, methodically. If in any doubt, about any of the content then please ask your questions here by starting a new thread. By the end of this series of guides you'll have the following setup and running in your windowsnoob.lab.local PKI LAB. Domain Controller (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.1 Issuing CA (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.2 Webserver (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.3 Offline Root CA (Windows Server 2016) Windows 10 (Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1803) - 192.168.11.4 (Optional) Smoothwall NAT (linux) - 192.168.11.199 and MMC based applications like this screenshot from the Enterprise Issuing CA will become familiar to you Before we start the series let's list some of the terms you'll see popping up over and over. I will try to explain them as we move through the guide. PKI - Public Key Infrastructure AIA - Authority Information Access CDP - Certificate revocation list Distribution Point CRL - Certificate Revocation List OCSP - Online certificate status protocol CA - Certificate Authority Note: I'd recommend that you snapshot (checkpoint) the Virtual Machines at the end of each part of this series, so if you make a mistake, you can always back track to a known good state. Step 1. Create the Virtual Machines I use Hyper-V for my labs, as it's a role built into Windows Server 2016 (and even Windows 10), so as long as your computer is relatively new and the hardware supports virtualization, you can use it (simply enable the role, reboot, and start using it). You should have at least 16GB of ram and 500GB of SSD storage to set this lab up comfortably. To quickly create the virtual machines I use a PowerShell script which I wrote, you can download it here. Download the script - Create HyperV VMv2.ps1 Virtual Machine Names For this LAB, please use the following naming convention for your virtual machines (note this is not the computer name but the virtual machine name). #11_DC01 #11_IssuingCA #11_RootCA #11_W10_1803 #11_Webserver #11_Smoothwall Note: The #11 prefix is simply a method I use in Hyper-V to separate my labs visually in Hyper-v manager, so #11 is one lab, and #10 is another (and so on). You don't have to use the same convention as I do, but it would make it easier for you to follow the entire series. I use the Smoothwall linux based NAT to provide Port Forwarding capability and to share internet into my various LABs. Virtual Machine Roles The Virtual Machines created will have the following functions #11_DC01 Roles: DC, DNS, LDAP CDP,AIA #11_IssuingCA Roles: Enterprise Issuing CA #11_RootCA Roles: Standalone Offline Root CA #11_W10_1803 Roles: A Windows client #11_Webserver Roles: Webserver HTTP CDP, AIA #11_Smoothwall Roles: Port Forward, Internet sharing Note: When prompted for a network switch, create a unique one (#11) for the first VM created, and use the same one for each of the other vm's (we will remove the network from the Offline Root CA). For generation type, use Gen 2. Below is how I created the virtual machines listed above. Note: After creating the virtual machines and before installing Windows Server 2016 on the Offline Root CA, you must remove the Network Card for the Offline Root CA virtual machine as it should not be connected to any network. Step 2. Install the virtual machines Install Server 2016 On DC01, RootCA, IssuingCA and Webserver, install Windows Server 2016. It's up to you how to do this, you can use an Automated MDT PowerShell script, or install them manually. To install all Windows Server 2016 on all 4 servers as WorkGroup joined computers do as follows.. Choose Windows Server 2016 Standard (Desktop Experience) Continue through the installation wizard until prompted for a password, use P@ssw0rd as the Administrator password Click Finish. And then logon using the Administrator username and password configured above. Once Windows is installed, set the IP address for each virtual machine as shown below. Note: Below are the Computer Name and IP addresses used in this guide. For the Offline Root CA, you must remove the Network card in the Hyper-V virtual machine settings. Computer Name: DC01, IP address: 192.168.11.1, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: IssuingCA, IP address: 192.168.11.2, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: Webserver, IP address: 192.168.11.3, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: RootCA, IP: <NO NETWORK> Computer Name: W101803, IP address: 192.168.11.4, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: smoothwall11, IP address: (Green, static) 192.168.11.199 (Red, DHCP internet IP) x.x.x.x Here's how you can set the IP address for DC01. And configure the Computer Name as per the list (in this example it's for the Domain Controller) Reboot when prompted. Install Windows 10 Enterprise version 1803 Install Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1803 on the remaining virtual machine (#11_W10_1803). Configure the Computer Name and IP address as specified. Leave it WorkGroup joined. Optionally install Smoothwall To learn how to setup Smoothwall express as a firewall see this blog post. Step 3. Configure ADDS on DC01 Now that you've installed the servers, it's time to make DC01 a domain controller, to do that we'll install Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) and to do that we'll use this PowerShell script, simply run the script as Administrator in Windows PowerShell ISE on DC01. Download the script -Configure ADDS.ps1 After running the script, DC01 is prompted to a Domain Controller and is ready for the next part of this series. Note: Please only run this script on the DC01 virtual machine. After running the script, the Domain Controller is ready for Part 2 (configured as dc01.windowsnoob.lab.local) and internet is working (via the Smoothwall) To continue with Part 2 of this series, click here.

  13. As a matter of interest are there any parts of the sccm install process you have not been able to powershell? I ask as around this time last year I was in a position of knowing I needed to rebuild my entire domain as we were going through a company rename but didnt yet have the new name. Ended up building a few dozen domain environments through powershell+powercli (vmware environment) including a lot of the sccm stuff so that once i did have the name+domain name i was ready to get going pretty quickly. I accept I am no powershell expert but as it took me a long time to put together if there are any smaller parts of interest I'm happy to share them, log of entire build attached. I made a lot of sacrifices in the scripts for the fact these scripts were all running remotely, e.g. i installed SQL as a scheduled task. Names/ip addresses tweaked for semi-anonymity.

  14. In the .HTA file I changed the following line: If DPI > 120 then DESIGN_DPI = 160 'dots per inch 'DESIGN_WIDTH = 450 'pixels 'DESIGN_HEIGHT = 365 'pixels DESIGN_WIDTH = dw 'pixels DESIGN_HEIGHT = dh 'pixels to If DPI > 120 then DESIGN_DPI = 96 'dots per inch <<--- 'DESIGN_WIDTH = 450 'pixels 'DESIGN_HEIGHT = 365 'pixels DESIGN_WIDTH = dw 'pixels DESIGN_HEIGHT = dh 'pixels This seems to have solved my scaling problems. You still need to adjust the Window size from above, reference: Call ReSizeWindow (425,335,500,535) in the code above the ReSizeWindow function. When the DPI is <120 the formula uses the design width and height 500,535 respectively. However when the DPI is >120 it will use the numbers 425,335 and then factor accordingly. To get mine to work I had to reduce those numbers somewhat but it now almost displaces the same as on a system with DPI set to 96.

  15. sorry just read the rest of your thread... as a work around, you can advertise the task to your desktop collection, but have the task respond ONLY to PXE and MEDIA, have it set to AVAILABLE and put a password on your boot media. MEDIA and PXE only, available setting and the password are all items to prevent current devices from getting reimaged by accident.

  16. $location = Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Setup" | Select-Object -ExpandProperty "UI Installation Directory" Resolves to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole. That is the correct registry key. However AdminConsole folder is not in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager The Module is only in x86 folder. I changed the registry 'UI Installation Directory' to point to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole and script is working after that change.

  23. Any guides how to deploy Lync 2013 to one AD Domain/Forest with multiple sites? HA is in mind... What servers need to be deployed to sites and how to do the configuration?
    2 points
  24. Hei sorry for not answering sooner. If you just install Lync 2010 standard then all u need is dc (as in domain) + 1 server to install Lync itself (standard). If u want high availability then Enterprise version is the way to go. With enterprise you can create pools of frontend servers for instance (with dns triks thouse pools work as load balancing). Also some spoilers from the next version: http://www.zdnet.com...ore-7000001415/ ---> Consolidation of roles; no separate server role needed for monitoring and archiving. Also if memory serves u cant select your own (remote) sql when using Standard (this could be lie as i dont remember no longer).

  26. Introduction Sometimes you need to install Windows features that normally need internet access (to install other components), language packs installed today are done in a modular and different format from previous years. In previous times you could simply install a language pack for the associate language and all was good, now there are additional components that also need to be installed otherwise Windows will attempt to download them from the internet (and notify you via the notification center if it cannot). I needed to install Windows 10 LTSC version 2019 in an offline environment (with no internet access) and I also needed to configure language pack settings and configure keyboard layout. I came up with a solution that works for me and I thought I'd share it. You might know of a simpler or better way, if so feel free to comment. Note: The LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel) version of Windows 10 is suited for special environments, and environments without Internet certainly are special. I've even verified that the equivalent version of Windows 10 (aka Windows 10 version 1809) behaves the same way, in fact the screenshots used here are from Windows 10 1809, I didn't import LTSC into my lab yet. I've also tested this method with Windows 10 version 2004 (and the associated version 2004 LP and FOD files and it works perfectly ! Step 1. Get the feature on demand packages Normally if you install a language pack on a Windows 10 computer with valid internet, it will automatically download the associated features on demand for that language and those can include: Display language Text-to-speech Handwriting Speech recognition Typing You can see these additional items listed in the screenshot below. Depending on the language pack capabilities, some will have all of these and some will have only a few. Most of these components (features on demand or FOD packages) can be found on the features on demand ISO for the respective operating system and you can download those ISOs from the Volume License Servicing Center (VLSC) website or go to Visual Studio downloads (formally MSDN). Below you can see some of the FOD packages listed on the mounted ISO. There are FOD packages for different types of function within Windows and the packages I was most interested in were any related to language (specifically). You may find that you want to install additional FODs for your particular solution. If you scroll down the long list of FOD packages you'll see some that begin with Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures, and they are sorted by country code (where applicable) into the following sections. Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Basic Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Fonts Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Handwriting Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-OCR Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-Speech Microsoft-Windows-LanguageFeatures-TextToSpeech such as below. This was my first clue to solve this. I decided to copy all the LanguageFeatures FOD packages from the ISO to somewhere local. The next thing I found on the ISO was Metadata, so I copied that also. Step 2. Get the Language packs Finally, there are also Language Pack ISOs available for download for your respective version of Windows 10, and on that ISO are larger cab files containing the client language pack for each language that is available. You can find the language packs in the architecture folder on this ISO. They'll look something like this. Step 3. Sort the downloads by country code Now that you've got the necessary files, you need to decide which languages you are going to support during OSD and sort them into their own respective folders. I copied language specific FOD packages and the client language pack for each language I was interested in into it's own separate folder like below (sv-SE for Sweden), and then copied those folders onto my package sources folder on the ConfigMgr server. Note that some languages may have more (or less) FOD packages available than others, so copy all that are available on the ISO and you should be good to go. The first cab file listed below is the Client Language Pack from the Language Pack ISO and the remaining 4 cabs are from the FOD ISO. Next create another folder with the Metadata files within it. Step 4. Create packages In ConfigMgr, create a separate package for each language you intend to add support for and point it to the folder containing the Client Language Pack and FOD packages. Once you've created all the language pack packages, don't forget to create the Metadata package. Distribute the packages to your distribution points. Step 5. Import the task sequence To save you a lot of effort all you need to do is import my task sequence and then modify the package references to suit your environment. Note: This is an MDT integrated task sequence so if you want to use it please integrate MDT with ConfigMgr. You will get messages about missing content during the import, choose 'ignore dependancies' and it will import the task sequence steps anyway. However, you must then step through each step in the task sequence that references a package, and point it to the equivalent package on your ConfigMgr environment. After importing the task sequence, make sure to add your language packages (and metadata) to the appropriate steps that reference them otherwise this won't work, pretty much all of the xcopy steps will need a package attached to them. Download the following, and import into ConfigMgr. Windows 10 LTSC language packs without internet.zip Step 6. A quick look at the task sequence logic The task sequence works by first setting a variable, called Location. You can set this as a step in the task sequence dynamically based on various inputs (such as DHCP IP address, gateway, computer variable, collection variable). That I leave up to you, I've forced this example to use Sweden as the location. Next, it dynamically sets Language specific variables based on the Location set previously. You need to add one of these dynamic groups for each language you intend to support. The below screenshot shows two languages configured but you could have multiple. Next (1) it injects the system, user, locale specific settings based on the dynamic variables set above. SysLocale UserLocale InputLocale Thee next group (2) copies the en-US language pack+FOD packages, and metadata. This is needed if you want to be able to switch languages via the input switch in the task tray (language bar). Next, it dynamically downloads (3) the FOD package containing the needed files to add features on demand plus the language pack for the language you are adding support for. It then uses a bunch of DISM commands (4) to inject the necessary FOD packages. After that it sets some reg-keys (5) to deal with known issues relating to language packs cleanup before adding some more steps to allow both languages (en-US and sv-SE in this example) to display on the login screen using the input methods switch. Step 7. Viewing the result After all that hard work you'll want to see the end result. In this lab I've disabled internet access by simply powering off my Smoothwall (which controls internet to the lab). We can see in WinPE that there is no internet. After selecting the task sequence it downloads the Operating System, applies it and then starts injecting the cab files and other dism operations. Below you can see it inject one of the FOD packages And below it's injecting the Client Language Pack, all of this is dynamic based on the Location variable. After installation is complete the login screen shows no internet in the LAN connection, but the language is in Swedish. When you attempt to login you'll see the language bar, awesome. And after logging in, you will see that your chosen language pack is installed along with the necessary FOD packages, automatically and dynamically even without internet ! Awesome or what ! And of course you can use PowerShell to verify the installation of your language pack with Get-WinUserLanguageList. Windows 10 version 2004 What about Windows 10 version 2004 ? it works perfectly using this exact same method, just switch out the Operating System wim file with the 2004 version and replace the FOD and LP packages with the correct version, see below.

  32. I'm going to run through this guide again. There's a few inconsistencies. Each step has a different scripts.zip attached. I figured I would just download the part 5 which would include everything (6 wasn't out at the time). And I noticed when you run powershell to install WSUS calls for a XML file in part 2\cm01 folder that does not exist. The XML file is in part 4 folder. Small little things like this. Also install roles and features power shell is in part 4 and 5 folders.

  33. My guess--and it's just a guess. I'm assuming that since it's the client that picked up the script to run, it'll be similar to the same context that other scripts run in, when picked up by policies, like Configuration Item Scripts, or Scripts used for Detection Logic for Applications--which is NT Authority\System, of the individual device. So if you want all your Domain Computers to have rights to some remote share, you'll want to make a share, and grant (I think) "Domain Authenticated Users" both NTFS modify to that location, and that the Share also has Modify rights to Authenticated Users. I think that might work... I see you're trying to use s$... that would be an Admin share. I wouldn't use that. Make a real Share, which you can permission properly.

  34. Hello, The update is not available to us either, it is slowly deployed to everyone but not at the same time. If you want to have it right now, you have to download a script that will put you in the early distribution ring. It is available here : https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ConfigMgr-1806-Enable-3eb4b46c I have not tested the script, I am waiting patiently ;-) I hope this will help you

  35. Thanks for the link, and the lab is definitely very useful and better than some other ones I've seen. I'll go through it some more. It seems like there's very little info on this specific aspect available on the internet regarding CApolicy.inf. I'm probably overthinking it but don't want to get it wrong. In other examples like Brian Komars book I see he adds more info under [certsrv_server] like "CRLPeriod", "CRLPeriodUnits", etc. and was wondering if there was a reason they were excluded on yours, if they are no longer needed or are set elsewhere, or if it's just due to it being a lab environment and those are the bare minimum settings needed for CAPolicy.inf EDIT: Just so other people who have the same question, I was able to find out that the only thing the CApolicy is needed for is to overwrite the few parameters that otherwise can't be configured via Powershell/GUI. So you're probably going to find a whole array of CApolicy files that are all technically correct, production-quality, they just contain varying levels of detail, and it's actually better to set them using CERTUTIL instead of defining them in the CAPolicy.inf file.

  37. Why not use Installed Software, ProductName = iTunes ? I'd feel more confident about that vs. the two different ARP ones. Are you sure you HAVE iTunes older than v12? Can you look at a box you *know* has an older version? maybe it's not called exactly 'iTunes'; but is instead called something like ... 'Apple i Tunes The Media Player' or something... not 'iTunes'

  42. Found a nice link for Group Chat role: http://blogs.technet...erver-2010.aspx The page itself: What is Lync Group Chat? Persistent topic-based discussion forums support dispersed teams “Channel dock” makes participation simple and efficient Multiple content types enable flexible information sharing Customizable notifications and alerts control interruptions User-defined filters enable “intelligent consumption” of information Backchat search transforms chat into a knowledge asset What are some use case scenarios of Group Chat in education? Class chat rooms - students join a class chat room and collaborate with other students, professor and grad students. Can also be used for office hours. School topic chat rooms - School district creates a chat channel such as ‘Civil War Discussion’ and then all the students within different schools in a school district can collaborate and discuss topics. IT helpdesk peer to peer End user helpdesk chat room Tutoring chat rooms Teachers, Professors chat rooms – a school district could setup a History Teachers chat room and teachers could share thoughts, lesson plans, best practices, collaborate Graduate students – projects, etc. Research - campus research working on a cancer research,etc. What are some new features of GC in Lync? The first big change is the Lync GC client has be re-written to support Lync standards such as it leverages the Unified Communications Client Platform (UCCP) API and Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API (UCMA) 3.0. The look and feel are similar to GC in OCS R2 however there are some changes: The Group Chat user interface and its accompanying icons, including its emoticons, have been upgraded and resized to match the Lync 2010 Group Chat user interface. Colors, notifications have been enhanced as well.
