  1. Skissinger, Thanks for the app recommendation as I had never heard of those ones before! I'll give them a shot and report back what I can find out... Thanks!
  2. So a couple updates / notes:- I went ahead and tried removing all GPO settings I had related to updates, did a GPUPdate /force on my test VM and re-ran both Software Updates Deployment Evaluation Cycle and Software Updates Scan Cycle...no luck- In addition to the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool being installed correctly, I have also noticed that Windows Defender updates are installing normally even though I'm not actually pushing out those via SCCM, so I assume those are coming directly from Microsoft- I reimaged my test VM just to make sure it wasn't something in my VM as well as checked a few student desktops in one of our labs...still no updates deploying.- I did notice as well in UpdatesDeployment.log the following error: EnumerateUpdates for action (UpdateActionInstall) - Total actionable updates = 0- From the way I read that, it is seeing the updates in SCCM, but is thinking, for some reason, that they aren't actually "actionable", meaning needing to be installed- Have noticed that when I got into my Search Criteria for All Software Updates, if I choose the "required" (set greater than or equal to 1), most of my updates show less than 20 machines requiring the update, but the MS Malicious tool being required by over 2000 machines (about the size of my network). Really is an odd issue and has to be something that I'm missing on this one...
  3. Hello, Apologies if this is a repeat thread, but I haven't been able to find the correct info I'm looking for here or anywhere else on the web. Have been using SCCM for quite some time, but only recently started using the SUP portion of it. I have created a Software Update Group with 119 updates contained in it (Essentially all Windows 10 Updates) as a base line to push out to my machines to make sure that they are as up to date as possible. However, the only thing that appears in the Software Center is the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. I have a few Windows 7 machines still in my network (I know I know...) and when I created the baseline SUG for that, it picked up all the updates and went exactly as expected. Seems to be specific to Windows 10 and, from what I can gather on the web, is likely related to Dual Scan. However, I have disabled DualScan via GPO, but just can't quite get it to work and am pretty confused as lots of sites seem to say different things from the setup. A few things to note... - I have "Do not allow update deferral policies to cause scans against Windows Update" enabled via GPO - I have "Specify intranet Microsoft update service location" enabled via GPO with the needed URL/Port settings - My UpdatesStore.log file shows as querying against 119 updates...but then only installs the Microsoft Tool mentioned above. - If I run a compliance report from SCCM, it shows the machines as being up to date. My theory on that though is that since they are only applying the Microsoft Tool and that is what is showing as needing to install, it "thinks" that it is compliant. - Have confirmed that updates are not installing as, if I click the "Check online for updates from Microsoft Update", it finds the needed updates. I'm sure I'm probably missing something obvious, but am about at my wits end trying to figure this out as was really proud of myself when saw my compliance numbers raise substantially when first deployed everything...then I started to notice that they weren't actually installing all of the updates.
  4. So looks like I didn't need the script after all. Never realized that SCCM does in fact with ADM files so you can use them for your GPOs to assign a management point. They are located in the Tools folder under your install path of SCCM. I just my setting in place, so we'll see if that fixes the issue, but thought I'd post this in case in is usefull for anyone else looking for them...
  5. So, it looks like my clients that are pointing to the old system won't automatically pick up the new one from wha tI have seen so far on a machine I am testing. In fact, when I got into "Site" tab on my test machine that didn't even have an entry for the "currently assigned site code", I tried hitting the Find Site button and it didn't seem to find my site automatically. Once I manually typed in my site code though and applied the settings, the correct information populated in the General tab. At least now it is pointing to the right site code and I can get access to the machine from within the config console. Does anyone know of a script or something I could use that would re-assign my client computers to insure they are pointing to the correct site code?
  6. Thanks everyone for your help! I just deleted all of the entries in my System Management container that refered to the old site code and then gave full permissions over the container to my new server. We'll see if that does the trick. On the same note though, a quick question to anyone out there...if I have installations out there of the client that are looking for the old Site code and, therefore the old server, do you think they will now automatically pick up the new site code? Or would they also need a reinstall of the client? I'm hoping for the former, but I can work with the later if need be...
  7. SMoRZ3, I think you may be onto something here... I didn't find the registry entry you mentioned. However, when looking at ADSI in the System Management container, I am seeing references to the old server. I've used ADSI in the past, but not too often...am I ok to probably just delete all of the references to the old server and old site code in there? If I remember correctly when I first setup SCCM (several years ago), I had to give ownership I think to this container somehow. Do you know the steps for that? Or is it just a matter of giving the comptuer name of my new server full rights over that folder? Thanks again!
  8. Hello, Ok, I am trying to figure out a somewhat wierd issue that I've been having for sometime now that I think I finally have a handle on as to what is causing my issues. I'll try to be breif... Several months ago, we moved from SCCM 2012 to current branch (on 1710 now). During that move, I was also asked to migrate the server from one host to another with a new server name (old one was just "SCCM", new one is "WCSSCCMS01") along with a new IP address. I did a fresh install of Windows Server 2016 along with the CB of SCCM and migrated the data over from the old server using the Migration tool built into SCCM (under the Administration tab on left in the console). Since then though, I've seemed to have "odd" issues that I never could explain. Task sequences that worked flawlessly before now had issues sometimes finishing or taking much much longer than before. Some deployments of software would never seem to get to machines. Things of that nature. I had noticed that many of my migrated objects stilll had the Package ID of the old server as well and, thinking that may have been part of the problem, I proceeded to recreate my task sequnces entirely on the new server thinking it would help. However, I have noticed that, while a machine will finish imaging and boot to Windows, the client seems to be corrupt. In fact, when I go into the Control Panel, the Configuration Manager isn't even listed! My fix has been to reinstall the client from the SCCM console and force to uninstall/install the client with the option to specify the site checked. This does some to work 85-90% of the time. Now for the strange part...I had to image a fresh machine today out of the box and realizd that I hadn't given it the right name during imaging and, upon booting into Windows, I proceeded to change the name. Since the config client hadn't installed and I just renamed it, I knew it wouldn't show up in SCCM just yet to push the client to it, I thought I'd just go into the SCCM folder on teh server and install the client from there by double-clicking the ccmsetup.exe file as I had done before in my old setup. It went ahead and installed "some" of the client. It only listed 6 tabs at the top (General, Components, Actions, Site, Cache, and Network). Additonally, the only actions available were "Machine Policy Retreival" and "User Policy Reteival." Odd I know...but the oddest part was that, under the General tab, it shows my assigned management point as being my old server! It even shows the site code of the old setup as well. That old server doesn't even exist anymore and has been deleted from AD completly at this point as well as it's DNS entries. My guess is that when it goes to install the client during a task sequence, it is somehow trying to pull MP of the old server and that is likely causing my wierd issues with sequnces not finishing and software not depoying correctly as I likely have several corrup installs out there. Anyone out there have a clue on how I can fix this? I don't even know where to start looking on this one... Thanks in advance for anyone who can assist...
  9. OK, so not sure why, but the original error I was getting seems to have gone away on it's own (yay!). However, a new one seems to have popped up in it's place. When running the same command now against my old SCCM server, I now get the following message: Analyzing local files, 100.00 % complete... Loading package data from provider... Loading local package data... Loading distributed packages from provider... System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.CLContentLibrary.LoadOrphanData(Boolean whatIfMode) at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.CLContentLibrary.Cleanup(Boolean whatIfMode, Boolean quietMode, String logDir) at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.Program.Main(String[] args) PS D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\cd.latest\SMSSETUP\tools\ContentLibraryCleanup> It obviously finishes running the scan, but now get an error saying that it can't reference the instanct of the object. Any ideas out there? Thanks
  10. Hi all! So I am working to migrate my old SCCM 2012 R2 install to a new server while also upgrading to the 1702 version on a new Server 2016 install. I have the new server setup and upgraded to 1702. I also upgraded my old system to the 1606 version. Before I actually migrate my data, I am trying to do some cleanup on the old server so I don't bring over all the extra "fluff" that I don't need from the old system. So, thankfully, I am trying the new ContentLibraryCleanup tool in 1702 and running it against my "old" 1606 install. The tool seems to run fine, but I am getting the following error and, thus, not able to run the full tool: Analyzing local files, 100.00 % complete... Loading package data from provider... Loading local package data... Analyzing local files, 98.82 % complete... Loading distributed packages from provider... System.InvalidOperationException: This content library cannot be cleaned up right now because package SC100020 is not fully installed. at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.CLContentLibrary.LoadDistributedPackagesFromProvider() at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.CLContentLibrary.LoadValidContentData() at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.CLContentLibrary..ctor(String remoteDPFqdn, String primarySiteServerFqdn, String primarySiteCode) at Microsoft.ConfigurationManager.ContentLibraryCleanup.Program.Main(String[] args) Odd thing is that I do not see that Package ID anywhere in SCCM. After doing some Google searching, I was led to do a SQL query for the package ID and I did in fact find it in the SQL database and it seems to refer to a deployment I made of Adobe Reader a while back. However, I have since retired and then deleted that deployment, so it shouldn't be there anymore I would think to prevent the CleanupTool from running. So, the question is: Does anyone know how to get rid of it so that I can succussfully run the ContentCleanupTool before I do my migration? Thanks

  12. Thanks for the suggestion thadkew, but it was a no go. Even after making sure BIOS was correct, still wouldn't quite work for me. Think I'm just gonna have to call Acer and see if they'll send me a replacement unit. The laptop works fine otherwise, just can't seem to image it. Should be an interesting phone call...
  13. Hello, I'm running into an issue I just can't seem to get past. We are starting a 1:1 computer program here at my school and we just received roughly 500 laptops (Acer TravelMate B117-MP). Since they have no ethernet ports, I decided to just go ahead and image them with flash drives and then just join them to domain via wireless once they finish taking the image. We've gone through over a 100 machines so far and most have not have not had issues. However, I am running into a handful that just won't image. They boot up from the flash drive and then, once they get into the WinPE enironment, they simply restart back into the normal Windows. I did notice that if I brought up the command prompt just before it tried rebooting, it would stop rebooting so I was able to get a hold of the log file in the machine. Not sure why, but it has the error in it saying that "There are no task sequences available to this computer.. Please ensure you have at least one task sequence advertised to this computer. Unspecified error (Error: 80004005; Source: Windows)" However, it is the only task sequence on the flash drive and I am not using any type of WMI queries on the TS, so it should just image the machine, regardless of why kind it is. I've attached to this the readout of the SMSTS.log file that I pulled from the machine. Anyone have any ideas on this one as I am becoming baffled at this point? Thanks in advance for any advice... smsts.log
  14. Hello All! I hope someone out there can help me with the current issue I am facing as I have been unable to find a solution and need some help. In creating our Windows 10 image, I removed most of the built-in provisioned apps, including the Windows Store, as it was always more of a nuisance in Windows 8/8.1 than anything else and nobody used it and we officially didn't have a reason to use it. So, I removed the Apps (and Store), sysprepped the image, captured it and have been deploying it (rather smoothly I might add) since then. However, now that we are on Windows 10 and the school year is 2 weeks in, I've been asked to find a way to get the Minecraft EDU version from the Windows Store onto several machines. However, I have been unable to find a way to restore the Store on any machine that has been imaged with that sysprepped image (so, namely, ALL of my machines). I have tried the directions from the following sites without success: 1. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-store-app-missing-windows-10 2. http://www.howtogeek.com/224798/how-to-uninstall-windows-10s-built-in-apps-and-how-to-reinstall-them/ 3. http://www.thewindowsclub.com/component-store-corruption-repair-windows-image I have also tried copying the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps folder from my machine (which was actually installed by hand with Windows 10 so I could test things initially) that still contains the Store to another machine and running the commands from the websites listed above thinking that may do the trick as well, but still haven't had any success. Other sites I have researched have suggested "upgrading" the machine from Windows 10 to Windows 10 using the Windows Media Creation Tool. However, that is not really an option as I may have to potentially do this to hundreds of machines. I would like to find a way that I can push this out either via SCCM or some kind of script whether it uses PowerShell or VBS if need be (PowerShell preferably though as I hate VBS!). Either way, I would just like to find some way to make this work even if just for a few machines to get me by without haveing to "upgrade" the machine over itself. I'm running out of options here and running out of ideas and could really use some help with this one. Anyone out there have any ideas? Thanks, Scott
  15. Hello all! I've been trying to figure something out and I just can't seem to find the info I need, so was hoping someone here might have the answer. I currently have a Windows 8.1 image that has been deployed to both students and staff. While Office 2013 ProPlus is included in the image, we didn't realize that Windows 8.1 also comes with it's own personal version of the OneNote app (not making the same mistake in my Windows 10 image), which doesn't seem to work with our business version of Office 365. Therefore, I'm trying to figure out a way to set the desktop version of OneNote 2013 as the default note-taking app. Otherwise, we have many students and staff that try the "personal" app version (unknowingly) and can't get into their stuff and then get frustrated and give up. So, anyone out there know how to either set OneNote 2013 (desktop) as the default app or perhaps set the file association to point to the desktop version instead? Thanks so much in advance! Scott
