  1. thanks, good to know Dell is one of the best in this regard. We may go dell for the warranty/ease of it
  2. Wondering if anyone has any experience or info on which hardware or manufactures have the best support with SCCM? Our company has decided to go the route of buying new mobos/cpus/ram and me building the new systems. We currently have ~80 old core2 intel boards that are slowly dying from capacitor issues. I'm leaning towards Asus motherboard (880G + Onboard Video: ATI Radeon HD 4250) and AMD AM3 socket setup for the new builds. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
  3. awesome thanks a lot, didn't know of that switch. Looks like it works
  4. Forgot to mention: 0x80070002 = file not found error, not sure why I'm getting that though because the file is there 0x800700C1 = because I somehow broke regedit on that machine. manually going to regedit32.exe still pulls up the registry though Also, this application was tested and working on 32bit Vista, hasn't worked since our windows 64 bit roll out though.
  5. When trying to install and update an application via Task Sequence or normal application deploy with SCCM 2007, it doesn't update the registry properly. It is not updating HKLM/Software/Application/, only the /Software/Wow6432Node/Application/, the application requires the first part to have the correct values. Target is windows 7 SP1 64bit When I run it locally it works (copy the files to the desktop and run from elevated command prompt). I see the update in regedit. I understand this is because of 64bit registry protection, so I tried the Task sequence with disable 64bit filesystem redirection (does filesystem include registry?), didn't make a difference. Currently I have 3 files in a folder on a share, install.cmd, snare.reg, and the application. yes DP is updated. Package is set to execute install.cmd, install.cmd contains the following: copy snare.reg %windir% start /wait SnareForWindows- /verysilent start /wait regedit.exe /s %windir%\snare.reg net stop snare net start snare -- Also in the TS, I set a command line step "regedit.exe /s %windir%\snare.reg" (I have also tried "start /wait cmd /c reg import snare.reg"), set "Disable 64bit redirection", and set "Run this step as the following account" and input a local admin account (also tried with this unchecked). getting errors 0x80070002 and 0x800700C1 on 2 different test systems, both fail the task sequence. The application installs fine, but registry doesn't update. The snare.reg file is successfully copied to the windows directory. How should one deploy a reg update on a 64bit system? Am I running into some weird limitation in SCCM or a scripting issue with remote installs and SYSTEM? The application also has an option to set the settings via an INF file but that just updates the registry the same way. I don't have access to AD or GPOs. Tried psexec with no luck. Struggling with this for days, thanks !
  6. thanks a lot, I was struggling with this same issue. darn redirection!
  7. Please point me in the right direction if this has already been covered somewhere else... I'm looking for a way to easily monitor the hard drive health of about a 100 win7 desktops in a windows domain. We do use SCCM2007. Is there a free or pay tool that would work, maybe send me emails if a hard drives SMART status degrades? I see tons of single system tools but need one with good enterprise level or centuralized monitoring and reporting abilities. Thanks for any suggestions. Fred
  8. Any one have a better idea then just adding this to a start up/logon script? attrib -h c:\Users\Public\Desktop Icacls c:\Users\Public\Desktop /grant "domain\Domain Users":M /T /C attrib +h c:\Users\Public\Desktop
  9. Some people actually do use the icons, I want to give the freedom to remove if desired, not have things disappear and generate more support questions for me.
  10. Hi, I was hoping I can get some hints or pointed in the right direction with an annoyance of mine and my users... Problem: standard users are unable to delete desktop icons from their desktop that were added during system deployment (via SCCM) or through application updates. Only administrator can delete the icons. Possible Solution: Is there a way through Domain group policy to Add the group "Domain Users" with Modify Permissions to folder "c:\users\public\desktop"? That would give people access to delete the icons they want. That is the easiest way that I can think of to fix this issue for now and through the future. P.S. This is a 100% windows 7 + 2008 R2 domain environment. Thanks for your help!, Fred
  11. Thanks a lot, I suck at writting code/scripts but this will give me some motivation to try! , and gives me some good reason to finally learn powershell. Any other resources/links are welcome (directly relating to SCCM+Powershell).
  12. I create a lot of packages, is there a way to set the defaults of the Creation Process, maybe through some type of template/xml/etc ? Example: In Software Distribution -> Packages -> New -> Package -> on "Data Source", automatically select the box "This package contains source files", set the source directory to what I want ("\\server\folder\"), on "Data Access" select: "Disconnect users from DPs", etc. There are probably 10 boxes or settings I set each time that are the same for everything I create. Is there any way to configure those types of things so every time I start the New Package/Advertisement/DP wizards it defaults to what I want (or removes a couple mouse clicks)? Looking to make my package creation process a little more efficient.... Thanks for any ideas!
  13. We removed the SUP and WSUS and started from a fresh state, we also had some issues with the entries in the SQL tables. Got this all cleaned up and now everything is looking better. When no one looks at the software updates for a while they all got messed up some how. I don't know where the previous updates were being pushed from since the deployment packages were empty. Thanks for your help!
  14. I don't see any updates listed within any of the Deployment Packages that are listed. Under Software Updates\Update Repository\Search Folders\Expired and Superseded folders I see tons of updates. Is there way to delete all expired and superseded updates from the SCCM database? Not seeing anything in the right click menus.
