  1. Well, that takes care of that doens't it Thanks for pointing that out to me. I guess the only option is to update reference image often.
  2. Well, we do this when we have a large deployment and we can duplicate the prestaged hard drive to the new computer hard drives, but doing it for one computer a day for instance is not as feasiable in my opinion. Plus, the time and effort to update a prestaged media is much more than a stand alone flash drive for instance. Thanks for your input though!
  3. Hello, When we use flash drive with just the boot media and it connects to SCCM via the network, the Task Sequence which includes "Install Software Updates" works perfectly. However, when we use Create Task Sequence Media, the software updates do not run. I understand that part of software updates is the task running the process to check which updates it needs so perhaps it doesn't know which updates to include on the flash drive, but, why won't it connect over the network to run this task? I know the standalone is supposed to be "stand alone" however the join domain network task runs over the network as well as the activate Windows. thanks
  4. Hello, Trying to use the new SCCM 2012 Task Sequence Variable SMSTSPostaction. Everywhere I look people are showing examples of using it with "shutdown /s" or something similar. That works for me too but I don't need that. I wanted to do a "cleanup" at the end of the TS, something along the line of "CMC /C rmdir /S /Q c:\sources" but it does not process. I've tried something as simple as mkdir c:\test as well to no avail (with CMD /C and without). Any help with this would be appreciated thanks
  5. Hello, I am trying to duplicate a Task Sequence in SCCM 2012 OSD that we have had working in SCCM 2007 for a couple years now. With 2007 OSD, we did some copying of files/executables to a c:\sources folder and at the end of the TS, we had some "first logon commands" on oobeSystem pass in the unattended.xml file that ran. Now with SCCM 2012, it seems to be running the unattended.xml file right after the Setup Windows and Configuration Manager step and before we are able to copy the files to the c:\sources folder. Anyone have any insight into this? thanks
  6. Hello, I have really gotten a lot of information from this forum in SCCM 2007 and now 2012 and thanks to all that contribute here for that. One problem we have and I can't seem to figure out is how to deploy an application to one (or multiple) client(s) without using BITS. We have a WSUS server and GPO that allows only 56kbps during work hours. However, there are times we like to deploy software to one user at full speed. With SCCM 2007, we were able to do that using a deployment point that did not have BITS installed, however in 2012 it seems we can't do it. When we install a DP it automatically is using BITS and can't get around our GPO (without moving computers into an OU that is blocking that policy which would be too tedious obviously). Do you know any workarounds? So, basically, we need to keep the 56kbps during work hours GPO for our current WSUS server (not part of SCCM, not even the same department), AND be able to install onesies such as Adobe Acrobat using SCCM 2012 but go full throttle. As I stated, in SCCM 2007 we are able to do that using DP's without BITS and if we needed to do a full agency deployment, we would use our main CM server which did use BITS. SCCM 2012 SP1 thanks
  7. Thanks, trying this now. Hopefully our GPO for WSUS that has it throttled at 56kb during day hours won't be in effect for this but i have a feeling it will
  8. Hello, i would like to include a way for our Windows 7 SCCM/OSD deployments to stream latest updates after they get deployed. However, our system administrator is using a WSUS server and she does not want to change at this point to using SCCM as the agency updater. I was wondering is it worth it to set this up solely for the purpose of updating deployments or does it seem like too much trouble. Maybe there is a better way to get newly deployed computers fully updated? thanks
