  2. 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. 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.

  7. 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] ...

  8. 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

  9. 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

  11. 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 i

  13. 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.

  14. $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.

  20. One thing i can't stand about forums is no one responding back to how they fixed their issue. I hope this helps someone down the road. I just got off the phone with support and this was their fix as well. They said it's a client side issue with certificates being corrupt. ERROR: Error.

  22. 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?

  23. 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 Stand

  26. Yes, 66 and 67 must be set to see the actual situation of the device When the number of VLANs is relatively small or when the switch setting does not support ip helper, You can set a distribution point for each vlan to solve the OSD problem.

  28. hi, see below do we need to enable full disk encryption during the OSD for this to work? the following docs explain that you can do this during OSD By default, the Enable BitLocker task sequence step only encrypts used space on the drive. BitLocker management uses full disk encryption. Configure this task sequence step to enable the option to Use full disk encryption. For more information, see Task sequence steps - Enable BitLocker. -do we need to set bitlocker encryption levels in the OSD still and GPOs or just use the new Bitlocker deployment policy after the machine

  33. We've had problems with Surface Pro 4 PXE too. Microsoft have confirmed it's a problem with the UEFI Network stack, and you need to have IPv6 enabled and routed to the PXE Server. If you just have IPv4 then it won't work. They are working on a firmware fix, which should be out in a few months.

  35. Another great step-by-step guide from Windows-noob, thanks. Save us so much time. In one of the other step-by-step guide (I think it was in 1606) a user asked for splitting up the different SQL logs,DB,Temp and so on to different drives, maybe it would be a good ide to include that in your SQL configuration settings. Again thanks for some really nice guides.

  36. Hello! Yes, do patch both x86 and x64. The detection should apply the correct architecture based on what' currently installed. For example, if you had Java x86 and Notepad++ x86 on an x64 machine, we would update to the latest x86 version for those apps if needed. No, we don't really pay much attention to what other competitors are doing. Instead, we focus on adding applications that would bring value to our customer base vs. just adding anything others may have that we don't currently support. Our customers can request new applications on our forum or email. We keep track of application reque

  37. Are you running Server 2016 WSUS? In the 1706 notes (when it was pre-release) https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1706#software-updates The 1710 notes show it as now no longer pre-release, but no mention of the dropping of the need to Server 2016 SUP, so I would assume that has not changed.

I am looking at installing a complete new server with and setting everything up from scratch. I know with my Applications/Packages/Drivers/TS's, etc, they will need to be redistributed. Will my clients need to be re-discovered and agents re-installed. I will use the same site code, but different server name and IP.

  39. Hi Experts, I am currently designing a Current Branch implementation for a customer who continues to ask for a Microsoft best practice evidence/ documentation. From whatever I have gathered over my past years of experience, i have never really come across a single "best practice rulebook" as one size can never fit all. In any case, could you guys direct me to any such guide which has design decisions/ used cases documented? other than these https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/configs/supported-configurations https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/hierarc

  40. Hello, I found a solution! I'm installing SCCM with the wizard, so the process create automatically the database. The problem is that it creates the database with a transaction log size to 10MB and no autogrow parameter. To solve this I created the database before starting the install with a default size to 5GB (I know this is a huge size value). Now it install the software successfully. EDIT: Finally, this error is due to the "model" database. It is not configured for autogrow and have a databases files set to 10MB. I just modified it and it is working well now.

  44. Hi all, Looking for some tips on this one as its not the most straightforward of activities. Scenario: We are planning to outsource our imaging to Dell, essentially this means we will create a image, and Dell will preload it onto newly purchased hardware. Therefore when the end-user gets their new laptop delivered, they simply connect the network cable, switch it on and follow the very basic on screen instructions (choose country etc), and away they go. Based on the country the users choose, lang packs are installed, time zone set, locale, and even the computer name is prefixed with th
