  1. It's not that, because it was working just fine before. I can't remember now if I somehow went in and decided I knew better and tweaked the B&C Task Squence from what Niall has in his guide or what. I also think it has something to do with teh updates themselves. I went ahead and deleted the Updates stuff from teh guide and re-created that part. I created a new B&C TS. I started the VM this morning and selected the new B&C and it's in the beginning phase of doingt teh Capturing Step right now, which is past the Install Updates phase. So, I think I might have this thing worked out. I was nervous for a while because it was stuck at 6 of 36 for a long time. I can only guess it was a big update like .net4 or something, but it seems to be progressing now. I will say this though, it takes forever to capture this plain jane image. Not sure if it's the VM I have SCCM 2012 installed in or what. Thanks for ths suggestion.
  2. I have started over again, and went back to do a fresh new Win7 Build & Capture and I am stuck at the Install Updates screen. It shows 1 of 31, and I have watched it stay here twice for over an hour each time before I stopped the virtual machine and started over. What have I done to break this? Is there a log stored on this VM that I can get to and review to detect what the problem is while it's stuck on this screen? If so, how, where is it and what is the file? Thanks for your help.
  3. Ok, new issue. I have downloaded the SCCM 2012 RC2 from the link in the guide. I have licensing for SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise, so I installed that version instead of an eval version on my server. I have done all teh updates for my server, and this time, smartly made a snapshot of the VM. So, I'm onto the Install SCCM step. Right after the Microsoft Software License Terms page, I get a Prerequisite Licenses page which shows Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client and Microsoft Silverlight 4 with the I accept these license terms check box under each. I don't see this in the guide and don't remember seeing this with my Beta 2 install, but I also did the SQL 2008 SP1 install with that one. I have restarted the VM a few times now hoping maybe it was just a a restart. Have I missed something? This time I have followed the guide to the letter and an logged in currently as the SMSadmin account for the install of SCCM2012 RC2. I'm afraid to check teh boxes as to me it seems like it will install these pieces which I don't need. I also have already install Silverlight 4 and all it's updates. I guess I'm wondering why it didn't detect that I have these prereq's already installed. Any help is appreciated. I see someone else did the same install I have done with R2 and CU4 and it worked for them, so I must have missed something somewhere.
  4. OK, so I finally got a chance to uninstall the Beta2 version, and I'm going on the RC version. I must admit, when I did the Beta, I didn't use the accounts you had in Step 1. I just mimicked the accounts we use in production; well at least to a degree anyhow. So this time, I want to use the accounts you state. I Must be missing something somewhere, because when I try and open the ConfigMgr 2012 Console on the SCCM 2012 server as the SMSadmin account, I get the following error: Insufficient User Permissions to Display Configuration Manager Information The user account running the Configuration Manager console has insufficient permissions to read information from the Configuration Manager site database. The account must belong to a security role in Configuration Manager. The account must also have the Windows Server Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) Remote Activation permission for the computer running the Configuration Manager site server and the SMS Provider. Where did I hose this at? I have SMSadmin listed as a member inside the local administrators group on the SCCM 2012 server. Sorry for asking such a basic question, but I am having to look at multiple products at once, and now it seems like they are all blending together and it's hard for me to keep track of what does what and where and why. Thanks for any advice.
  5. It is in a VH. Bad news was in my test environment I have limited space. I had originally configured it for 100GB. I had to increase it to 250 so I had added space, but it wouldn't let me edit the disk while I had snapshots. I only had the one, so I deleted it. No worries, I don't mind starting again as it's all a learning process anyhow.
  6. OK, and by clean install, is there anyway to remove this beta version with destroying my AD? Can I simply just do an uninstall from the install media? What about the servers I have that already have t his beta SCCM client on them? Do I need to uninstall that as well as the FEP client that is on them? What all is involved from this server to my other servers? I currently only have one desktop in this test environment. I have just been testing on servers at t his point as I am testing several new SC products and more. Thanks.
  7. Ok, well, it's been a few weeks since I have looked over your guides, but it looks like it's been revamped for the latest RC that was released of SCCM 2012 which looks like it now includes teh Endpoint Protection 2012. Is this correct? So, I downloaded the RC, and am now attempting to upgrade the current version of 2012 I had done based off your previous guide. I select the Upgrade an existing CM2012 installation, and I get an error popup window. It tells me that teh C:\ScanNetBios.ini file could not be found and to run teh ScanNetBios.exe files located in teh Tools\Upgrade folder on the media to create this file, review and edit is as necessary, and then return to the wizard to continue with upgrade. Problem is, I cannot located that exe file to run. So, is this a limited version of the RC which doesn't really allow for upgrading the beta? Am I going to have to start all over now that I have all of my test environment configured? Thanks for any help and suggestions.
  8. Anyweb, What would be the chances of you doing a guide for FEP 2012 Beta? From the server install through the deployment of a FEP client manually? Since you did such a great job on SCCM 2012 Beta, this should be a walk in teh park for you! Thoughts?
  9. Sorry, I found another post of yours in the forums which pointed me in teh right direction. I was skipping the Win PE boot part. I have since gotten in, and have a command prompt up and a drive mapped to my server and successfully copied the sms log file. So, I have started the imaging process again, and when I get to that error, I'll just press enter in the command window as I have the copy command ready to go. At that point, I'll try and look over the log, but might need to email you or post it here to get some added help. Thanks again.
  10. I don't know how to check the smsts.log file. Someone here on campus told me to press F8 to get to it when booting teh failed computer. However, this is a VH, and once it gets past the PXE menu all I get is the BOOTMGR file is missing screen. I have tried pressing F8, Shift-F8 at all different times during the boot process to no avail. As for the binary differentual being enabled; yes the checkbox is checked on the Operating System Image on teh Data Source tab.
  11. I followed all teh docs just fine. I have a working WDS server in my production environment, so I want to use the image I deploy there insode my test environment. So, I copied teh wim file over, imported it, and all looks well. I can PXE boot and select it. Everything seems to be working right until I get the message below. It partitions and formats the C: and then copies the image down and then starts the apply image phase. Everything looks ok, and then it gets to the 5 blue bars and I get a Task Sequence Error. I have researched the error code for a week and can't seem to figure this one out. Why does it deploy fine inside my WDS server, but does not deploy fine here? Any help is very much appreciated as this is a critical piece for us moving to SCCM 2012 when it becomes RTM. Thanks.
  12. I am having problems trying to install the Lync 201 client via the msi file. I have successfully deployed the XML Notepad msi file, so I know the system works. I have setup the Lync 2010 Client exactly as the XML Notepad, and I get the error attached in this screen shot. The user that is logged into the computer I am trying this on, Windows 7 X64 Ent., is just a domain user account. Since this is what it will be when I push it out to the masses, I wanted to replicate this in my test environment. So, what am I doing wrong that I get this error message? Thanks.

  14. Teamviewer is probably the best option due to the campus network and rdc and vnc aren't open through the campus firewall. Feel free to contact me via phone or email when a good time is. I'll make myself available when you are. I am in Texas, USA timezone is Central Standard time. It is currently 10:11 AM here. I guess you can get my email info from my profile here. If not, let me know how to get you my contact info offline. Thanks. Matt
  15. Awesome guide. I have been able to successfully do pretty much everything you have laid out, with one exception. PXE booting a client. I have a WDS server in my production environment and it works flawlessly. In my test environment, where I'm setting up this SCCM 2012 server, I can't seem to get PXE to work. Someone told me to uninstall WDS and then only select the transport not the deployment server. But in your documentation it shows to install both. It never goes into whether you need to configure WDS itself inside Server Manager or not, so I am assuming you don't do that, and it stays with a Red X bang inside the Server Manager? My DHCP server is on a different server, and I can boot a PC and it gets a DHCP IP address from that pool. So, I don't know where else to look. I can't do too much with the network settings as it's our main Campus IT department who controls all the routers and switches. I know PXE is working over these equipment, because my production servers/WDS service is working. So, would you have any advice? I have even gone into teh DHCP Scope Options and added a check box to 67, and it got me further. It pulls an IP address, but then a TFTP line comes up and it doesn't do anything. I tried added in the preboot.com line that I found in another post here, but that didn't change anything. I even add the IP address of the SCCM server to 66, and that didn't change anything. If I leave the DHCP Scope settings alone/default, meaning nothing for options 66 & 67, I get the following message when I PXE boot the client: PXE-053: No boot filename received. PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM. Thanks for any insight or help you can provide. *A side note: I'd love it if you could do your own Lync 2010 Setup guide and include installing the Lync Client and connecting it to the server. I very much appreciate what you do for the tech community. Matt
