  1. Hello, I'm working on a Powershell script to install Autodesk products. I'm having issues with a step and hopefully someone can help. I've tried this many different ways and keep running into errors. Using double quotes (Start-Process "msiexec.exe" -ArgumentList ""/i $dirFiles\ABDS2017\Img\x64\RVT\RVT.msi INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Autodesk\" ADSK_SETUP_EXE=1 /qb!"" -NoNewWindow -Wait -PassThru).ExitCode Error Cannot validate argument on parameter 'ArgumentList' Argument is null or empty. Using a variable to define InstallDir $RevitInstallDir = "C:\Pr
  2. You need to figure out why it is just closing the cmd window. Open a CMD window as admin, then execute the program by typing the full unc path. Doing it this way the cmd window won't close right away and you should be able to diagnose why it didn't run the script. Your other option is to open the script itself and copy each command in one after the other into a cmd window and see what it fails on. Good Luck.
  3. Figured out this issue, Inside the Task Sequence under the Install Image there was a checkbox that said Access content directly from distribution point. After unchecking this option, multicast worked perfectly.
  4. Hello all, I'm trying to setup Multicast in our environment and are having issues getting it to run. I've configured the distribution point to use Multicast, I've set boundary groups for my machines to only talk to this DP. I've changed the setting of the wim to transfer over multicast, I've made sure the deployment of the task sequence is set to Download Content locally. No matter what I do, it always just does Unicast. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks
  5. I've seen this before, I believe that is just the chosen date Microsoft put for their start time. Its mainly just for cosmetics but if you want to change it to a different day then Open the properties for your Application Deployment, Click the Scheduling Tab, Click the Schedule At Radio Button and change the date and time to the current time or even a few hours earlier. I believe that should fix your issue. Best of luck.
  6. My problem is I can't seem to find it, Here is the query that lets me know what image is on the machines. I tried looking under SMS_G_SYSTEM for Current Version but its not listed. Thanks select SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion.Version, SMS_R_System.Name from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion on SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId inner join SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion64 on SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion64.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion.Version = "IMAGE1" or SMS_G_System_CurrentVersion64.Version = "IM
  7. I was wondering if anyone here has used the Console Builder to add things into SCCM? I followed the tutorial here http://idanve.blogspot.com/2015/03/add-custom-column-to-sccm-console-using.html but I'm wondering if its possible to have a custom registry entry in a column. So here is where I'm getting at. I have a reg key that gets placed during OSD that tells SCCM which image it has. I can use Hardware Inventory to collect this Reg Key Value. I can run a query that tells me who has what image. I would like to put this value into a column using the console builder if poss
  8. I ended up figuring this out, The problem was when I set a restriction to this collection, the same restriction would apply to other collections. I ended up duplicating the limiting collection and making all the restrictions on this second collection. Now everything works perfectly. Thanks
  9. Hello, I'm looking for a way to prevent certain techs in my organization from adding machines and deleting machines from certain collections, I have 4 collections that I don't want them to modify. Can anyone help me out with this? I tried following some tutorials but can't seem to get them to work. Thanks Lenny
  10. Hello all, I am having an issue with a new client I just reimaged. This one has Windows 8.1 on it. In the ConfigMGR Control Panel I have only 4 Actions listed: Application Deployment Evaluation Cycle Discovery Data Collection Cycle Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle User Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle I tried uninstalling the client and reinstalling. Tried upgrading the client to R2 CU3. Tried deleting the cert but Nothing seems to be working for me. Any Ideas? Thanks
  11. Nevermind, figured it out. I deleted all the power plans and then created them on my computer using windows. Then I found the reg key containing the guid and all policies and imported them into a GPO. I then had folders for each policy and used targeting to apply them to certain security groups and organizational units. I also used a reg key to make the policies the default active policy so they couldnt be changed. I also changed the description of the policy as well. I'll post some pics and a better description tomorrow with how to do all this. Thanks
  12. Hello all, Hoping someone can help me out here. I got a question about Group Policy I’m having an issue with. I’m trying to create multiple custom Power Plans, each will be for different purposes. 1 for Staff, 1 for Students, 1 for machines we don’t want to lock. I would like for each of these plans to be default for the specific user and not be able to be changed. I know how to get all of this working except for 1 part. The Plans need to be locked down by their GUID. When I send out the plans, the same plan on computer A will have a different GUID then the same
  13. Okay so weird issue we are having, We just created a new SCCM 2012 R2 Server almost 2 weeks ago, Since then it seems every morning I come in, The SCCM Console won't connect to the server. If I log into the server, the SCCM Console works just fine, Other users can't get SCCM to work either, The only solution for us is to reboot the server then it starts working again. Any ideas? What logs should I look into? Thanks
  14. Been looking around the web and can only find an old video on how to create a clean packaging environment for XP. Here is what I have been doing, Please comment on what else should be done to create a clean environment. 1. You should be using a VM and a good tool is VMware Workstation for PC or VMware Fusion for Mac. 2. Choose an OS (The place I work for uses Windows 7 32-Bit 95% of the time) 3. Create 1 20GB or more HDD and 1 6GB HDD (SWAP) and attached to your VM 4. Install Windows to the 20+ GB HDD. 5. Turn Off Automatic Updates then Run Windows Updates but only S
  15. Hello everyone, I have decided to create a tutorial on how to add a shortcut into a MSI. Our software packager likes to rebuild MSI from ground up using Admin Studio and what ends up happening is the MSI's don't work great afterwards, Most of the time its Deleting a shortcut or Adding one. So instead of rebuilding an MSI lets use Orca to create a Transforms file to create a shortcut. 1. Download Windows SDK http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279 2. Choose the Default installation options 3. After install navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows
