  1. that error translates to " Operation did not complete because there is no logged-on interactive user. Source: Windows Update Agent ----- "
  2. I will do up a guide for installing the smoothwall VM soon, and thanks for the thanks, as regards the scripts, all of them are available for download for any logged in member of windows-noob.com if you encounter any missing script please point me to it and i'll fix it cheers niall
  3. not that i'm aware of, if the PIN is causing you so much issues why don't you just disable it
  4. If your computers use Intel vPro technology and it's configured then maybe you could use that to solve this (but I haven't tested it)
  5. You could try hiring a consultant to remote in and troubleshoot it for you ? I'm on vacation now so don't have that much time to troubleshoot problems, also, have you taken a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/servers/deploy/configure/boundary-groups#fallback in WinPE, the client gets the list of possible MPs from a regkey that is set on the Distribution Point HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\DP\ManagementPoints This key contains information about which MPs are available and in what order it will try to reach them. That order is determined by the order in which you installed the management points...You can change this key (on the distribution point) but it will be overwritten again soon by ConfigMgr. One workaround is to either run a schedule task that sets the "correct" value you want or use Configuration Items to set it instead...
  6. As the old adage goes: fail to prepare, prepare to fail. It’s the perfect description for backup yet to this day so many companies don’t have an adequate backup & disaster strategy in place for when the worst-case scenario happens. Just how well are you protecting your vital data? The Backup Bible, a free eBook from Altaro, guides you through the stages of preparing for, responding to, and recovering from a substantial data loss event, which can otherwise be disastrous for a company of any size. This eBook is the first installment of a 3-part series comprising the complete guide to data protection. It covers how to get started with disaster recovery planning; how to set recovery objectives and loss tolerances; how to translate your business plan into a technically oriented outlook; how to create a customized agenda for obtaining key stakeholder support; and the essentials to setting up a critical backup checklist. The second and third parts in the series will be released later this year but by downloading the first part, you’ll automatically receive the other eBooks in your inbox as soon as they become available! Whether you’re just starting to put together a backup and disaster strategy or you want to make sure your current plan is up to scratch, every IT admin needs to read The Backup Bible.

  7. why did you configure dhcp options, that's not needed or recommended, please remove them and try again
  8. not as far as i know, and i asked Microsoft and they responded the same, so you are out of luck, why are you asking anyway ?
  9. I recently did a presentation for a Belgian User Group where I talked about a bunch of cool features in Microsoft Endpoint Manager like Tenant Attach, the ability to install applications, run scripts, use CMPivot, cloud OSD and more. Details Here are the details about the session 20h30 – 21h15: What’s new with cloud features in Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview by Niall C. Brady (Microsoft MVP Enterprise Mobility + windowsnoob.com). In this session you’ll get to see new Tenant attach features coming soon to Microsoft Endpoint Manager, Configuration Manager. These features are already available to try out in the Technical Preview releases. You’ll see how to install applications from the admin center, what the device timeline is and how to use it, CMPivot actions, Run scripts. In addition, you’ll look at other cloud friendly features such as VPN boundary type, Task sequence media support for cloud-based content. Downloads You can download the PowerPoint I used and watch a recording of the presentation in full below. I demo some cool features so I’d recommend you watch it in full. ppt – A look at the new cloud features in Configuration Manager Technical Preview video – https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApUuxMbRp9Jge_z66VXDKbnl0AU?e=csDRN7 cheers niall
  10. if you choose to not use PKI in your infrastructure then you need to add a PKI-based server auth cert to the IIS website hosting the recovery service – this can be the same cert you used when configuring HTTPS on the MP or another PKI-issued cert if not using HTTPS.
  11. you can always upgrade the OS and SQL using an inplace upgrade, and that's the method I would choose and have done in the past. You need to get SCCM up to the latest version though before upgrading the operating system, here are my old notes and this does not include the operating system upgrade (which you can do after upgrading SCCM/SQL)
  12. I think you are confusing application download and sending/receiving machine policy or state messages to the management point, i assume you have a local distribution point that resides in the IP Address range boundary that this computer is being image in, is that correct ? is the application in question also on this local DP ?
  13. first things first why do you want to setup a new site maybe there's a better option like upgrade your existing infrastructure to Current Branch.
  14. did you install CM2002 in the slow ring or fast ring ? have you seen any update appear in updates and servicing for PXE boot issues (amongst other things) ?
