  1. For the last couple of days, I've been trying to install a secondary site or, I should say, reinstall a secondary site where the server failed. I've tried everything I can think of. Install a new server with the same name as before and with the same and different site codes. Install a new server with a different name with the same and different site codes. I've tried preinstalling SQL Express and SQL Enterprise. Nothing works. It runs the prereqcheck fine and then stops at prerequisite checks complete. There is nothing in the sender.log on Primary server and no .TMP folder created on the new server. I'm running the latest CU as well. (CU1) Any ideas?
  2. Read the guide for setting up monthly updates and it works great so far in the lab. A few questions: If we've never had an update policy before, we can assume that some machines needs updates further back than the last month. Initially, how do we best get those machines updated? A manual ADR with all updates up to this point in it? Is it possible for a machine to miss it's update window? For instance, if a laptop is out of the office for several months. What happens when they come back? Will prior update groups still try to apply updates to that laptop? Perhaps I've missed it, but is there a guide or similar to deploying updates manually to a bunch of machines? Thanks!
  3. The report I'm referring to is called "Bitlocker Enterprise Compliance Details" and "Computer Compliance Report". The Enterprise compliance report says that the computer is non-compliant, when I go into the computer compliance report for that specific computer it has the C: drive encrypted but it still says non-compliant. Why is it non-compliant if it is encrypted?
  4. Does anyone have a good idea on how to create a report on which machines have bitlocker enabled on the "C:" drive as well as the machines that doesn't? The built in reports aren't real clear on what they are reporting. I have a report where the laptop comes up as non-compliant, but when I go into details the C: drive is in fact encrypted. Confusing. I'm running SCCM 2012 R2.
  5. Hi, similar issue happened to me. Try imaging the laptop while it's docked and the screen is closed.. I.e., use an external screen. It seems to be related to the touch screen.
  6. So, it seems that this only happens on touch enabled laptops, in my case Latitude 7440. If I dock the laptop, close the screen and run the install from an external screen it works fine. Driver issue? Issue with SCCM and touch? Windows 8.1 Apps issue? Anyweb, any ideas?
  7. The problem wasn't with the script, it was with the version of MBAM. I had missed installing the newest version that supports Windows 8.1, MBAM 2.0 SP1. Thanks
  8. As I understand it, "reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /v RunOSDResults /d %windir%\UDI\OSDResults.exe /f" is added from the "OSD_InstallOSDResults.vbs" to the registry of the machine. When things are working as they should, at least in my case, "Deployment Complete" pops up after the TS has completed and the computer has restarted, but before we log in. As it is now, it takes about 30 minutes to login after a deployment. Windows is showing the "Almost done. Taking care of a few things. Installing Apps. Don't turn off your PC." screen. After "Almost ready.." is done, the deployment complete pops up. Could it be that AppInstall.exe, which is added to "reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" in the registry, is some how causing this? thanks
  9. Here is the latest SMSTS.log file. This install ran today, finished but no complete message. OS is 8.1, that I think might have something to do with this... not sure though. smsts.log
  10. I'm trying to set up a Windows 8.1 deployment TS using SCCM 2012 R2, MDT 2013 and UDI. The UDI is just there so that I will get the "deployment complete" message, no settings are changed in it. Now, since moving to R2, the deployment complete message doesn't always appear in the end and I have no idea why. The same latop is used Saturday, SUCCESS, Installed all software in the TS and got the deployment complete message Monday,First run. FAILED, Installed some of the software and actually got a deployment complete message. Monday, Second run. FAILED. Installed all software, but no deployment complete message. This isn't making any sense to me....
  11. Did you ever see the blog post by David Hornbaker? http://blogs.technet.com/b/deploymentguys/archive/2012/02/20/using-mbam-to-start-bitlocker-encryption-in-a-task-sequence.aspx I had some success using this solution before the upgrade to 2012 R2. Now SCCM doesn't even download the script to run it. Do you know if something changed with R2 that makes it not download VBScripts ro run locally? Perhaps I'm missing something else but I feel like I've tried a bunch of different things.... Thanks!
  12. Hi, Would you mind specifying how you are taking control using MBAM, after installing the client, in this task sequence? I can see that you are installing the client, but you're not adding any regkeys in the TS with MBAM server connection specifics. If I understand it right, your TS will install the MBAM client, wait for the group policy to apply and then pop up the MBAM Wizard to the user. Is that correct? Thanks!
  13. Is it possible to have a user choose between Win7 and 2008 R2 through the UDI Wizard's Image Selection? Or do I need different task sequences for each OS? Also, in the UDI Wizard during deployment it wants to install Windows do D:\Windows instead of C:. Is there a way for me to force it to C? By the way, this is not an image directly from the Windows 7 DVD. It installs fine as a non UDI task sequence.... The only difference I can see is that UDF TS has a partition for Bitlocker. Thanks
