  1. I too would like to know how to handle this. I suppose you can go in each month after the deadline and just update it and run the rule again. Is that an options? I ended up saying As Soon as Possible and creating a Maintenance Schedule. Hardly a perfect solution. What is best practice for either Creating new Packages each month or Add to Existing? If each Update Group is seperated by OS, might it be possible to only create new Packages say every 6 months or so? Thanks!
  2. Hello, How do 'Update Revisions' get handled in SCCM 2012? In System Center Essentials, there were options that state: Updated versions of update are occasionally released. The user can choose whether to automatically approve these revisions, or continue to use the older version which will continue to be approved. You can either choose to automatically approve the latest revision of the update, or continue using the older version and manually approve the new update revision. My client currently wants to continue to use the old version and manually approve the new update revision. How would one accomplish this on the SCCM/WSUS side? UPDATE: - Would that be the same as the Supersedence rules under the SUP properties?? BONUS: 1. I've setup some ADR's for monthly updates via the tutorial on this site. On the Deployment Schedule Tab it has the start date and the Deadline date. Will those get updated each month, or does the Admin have to go in and set new dates manually? Does this make sense? UPDATE: I'm attempting to have the Deployment Schedule set to As soon as possible for both Availability time and Deadline and am going to create a Maintenance Window for that Collection. Why can't the Deadline just reset the date to the Last Run time? Really, no way to do this? 2. I have update ADR's for each OS, how often should I create a new Package for them? I'm imagining it will get quite large over time. 6-12 months? Thank you for any insight you can provide, Anyweb- Great Tutorials! We appreciate the effort.
  3. Perfect thanks. I know its fairly easy to create the AD sites, but I've never done it and wanted to be sure that was the most solid way to go before proceeding. Thanks Peter33!
  4. I need to be set straight on a couple of things. Currently have 3 physical sites, with a DC in each site. Each physical site has smaller branch offices connecting to it via S2S VPN. In AD Sites and Services however, there is only the one Default Site, with all 3 DC's in there...no subnets defined. 1. If I setup my boundaries using IP subnets or ranges, will this work even though the subnets aren't listed in AD? Confused on this. 2. My thought was to create 3 boundary groups as I'll have a DP at each site. Then I would put the subnets for the branch offices in the respective BD. Makes sense? Good plan or? I ask because I tested just using Subnets as Boundaries and I was getting errors on the client complaining about not being able to find the DP from the MP...even though I triple checked the proper subnets were in the right BD. So curious if you need the subnets in AD too. Thoughts? Thanks!
  5. In on the search for an answer on whether SCCM stand alone or with any type of 3rd party product is available to be able to report on or somehow track depreciation on windows and non windows based devices. Accounting would like to know. Any ideas? Bonus if you can enlighten me on the best way to gather 3rd party licensing data from within Asset Intelligence for our SCCM deployed software. Thanks for any info you have! Brad
  6. So I've been wanting to know if upgrading to scom 2012 will resolve the issue in the link below pertaining to the actual % free space doesn't show in the alerts. Any ideas? We're currently using the mentioned fix, but would like to know if 2012 resolves this. http://blogs.technet.com/b/kevinholman/archive/2011/11/17/opsmgr-logical-disk-free-space-alerts-don-t-show-percent-and-mb-free-values-in-the-alert-description.aspx Any info would be great! Thanks Josh
  7. Thanks for the information; that makes sense.
  8. Ok, forgive me if this is mainstream information, but I'm trying to find out how SCCM 2012 handles uninstalling applications and/or packages. Or maybe it doesn't. User Centric Management allows us to tie apps to user collections now and not only device collections.... so i would use this if a user travels between PC's, and they will always get the software they need, great, done. ...but does it uninstall automaticaly if for example the user doesn't use a particular PC for X amount of days or something? Im hoping it does, otherwise I could see that causing a lot of issues with appliction and license inventory. I'm reading on this concept of 'retirement' for apps, does that uninstall the app from the clients, or just remove it from SCCM? I'm really after concrete info in terms of how uninstallations work....or if I have to create a seperate package to uninstall any app from any client. I hope not. Any an ideal world, I'll tie Application ABC to User 123. Lets say User 123 logs into 10 different PC's (sure, lets make them all primary devices for the sake of argument) and App ABC installs as it should on all of them. Now lets say User 123 starts only using one of the PC's, how can I make the app uninstall from all of the other computers that User 123 ISN'T using? Hope that makes sense. Thanks! Brad
  9. Great thanks. Which I've left as default. Aside from that what would generate the 80004005 error when trying? nothing shows up in the SMP...I've even added 'everyone' to ntfs and share for testing. Im at a loss and have to demo this stuff!!
  10. Thanks. That makes sense, so what I've done is create an MDT Replace TS from SCCM but it keeps failing on the capture state part. A normal std client install TS works perfect. do i have to put in the backup share or something in the CustomSettings.ini file or something? Again, I've always worked with MDT....now that I've integrated it into SCCM Im not sure what controls what. Do I have to put the backup location in the CS.ini file? ...or what controls where the USMT should back up to? ALSO It looks like when installing Windows 7, its putting it on the E drive. I dont see any reference in the TS for an E drive. Stuck again. Maybe this is part of the problem?
  11. Any ideas on this? I've integrated MDT 2012 into SCCM and am creating TS's via 'create mdt task sequence'. it fails when doing usmt. all I seem to get is the error 80004005 and 80004004 in the smsts.log file.
  12. So im an idiot. you can kick them off in the Software Center on the client. However I am now getting error 80004005 when running the Replace Task Sequence during the user state phase: LOG[!sVolumeID.empty(), HRESULT=80004005 (e:\nts_sccm_release\sms\framework\tscore\resolvesource.cpp,477)]LOG]!><time="17:19:00.364+360" date="02-19-2012" component="TSManager" context="" type="0" thread="1372" file="resolvesource.cpp:477"> <![LOG Any Ideas?
  13. Thanks. How would i kick off the TS from within the OS? Also, what if I just want to refresh the current PC? do I have to create an association from itself to itself? I tried creating a USMT capture user state only TS and it failed (it was running in PE) with error 80004005. Is this because its being run in the PE environment?
  14. Im very new to SCCM in general, but have worked a lot with MDT. In MDT I can browse to the litetouch.vbs and kick off a TS from within Windows, which would allow me to do a USMT of the source PC. Then in the MDT TS on the destination PC I would simply point to the USMT network location of the source PC's USMT file. Done, Next. In SCCM 2012, I followed the great documentation on this site to setup TS's, packages, etc... but when I PXE boot and run my TS (USMT is in the DP) it completly skips the USMT part of it and starts formatting/installing Windows. I tried playing with the settings in the TS under Capture User Files and Settings to no avail. ..Like using VSS or file copy. Is there something I'm missing? Can you or do you have to run a SCCM TS from within Windows to utilize USMT? From what I'm assuming all of this is done in PE. If that is correct assumption, does this also hold true when migrating XP to 7? I just now integrated MDT into SCCM so maybe thats part of my answer? Im guess I'm trying to figure out how to work with USMT on the back and restore sides, and doing so when I do a replace or refresh TS. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thx B
