  1. ignore the above - I found the answer: Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where Name like "%XX%"
  2. Hi All, Is it possible to have a task sequence variable that looks at the hostname and if starts with *XXXX* run the task, if not move on to the next step in the task sequence?
  3. Resolved with a whole new report .... pasted it here if anyone is keen http://pastebin.com/7vsrGQQd
  4. Hi All, I have extended the 'active directory user discovery' to collect some additional attributes like telephonenumber, manager, department etc. I have created a new report which should show this data but unfortunately its not showing any results. I am assuming this is due to some of the users having blank attributes in AD. Is there a way to show these blank attributes in a report or a way around it. This is the query in case anyone wants to see : SELECT DISTINCT v_GS_SYSTEM.Name0 AS 'Computer Name', v_R_System.User_Name0 AS 'USERID', v_R_user.displayName0 As 'Full Name', v_R_user.telephoneNumber0 As 'Landline Number', v_R_user.mobile0 As 'Mobile Number', v_R_user.company0 As 'Company', v_R_user.department0 As 'Department', v_R_user.title0 As 'Title', v_R_user.manager0 As 'Manager', v_R_System.AD_Site_name0 AS 'Site name', v_GS_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Manufacturer0 as 'PC Manufacturer', v_GS_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.Model0 as 'PC Model', v_gs_PC_BIOS.SerialNumber0 as 'Serial Number' FROM v_GS_SYSTEM left JOIN v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_GS_LOGICAL_DISK.ResourceID left JOIN v_RA_System_IPSubnets ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_RA_System_IPSubnets.ResourceID left join v_GS_COMPUTER_SYSTEM ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_GS_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceID left JOIN v_gs_PC_BIOS ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_gs_PC_BIOS.ResourceID left JOIN v_GS_PROCESSOR ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_GS_PROCESSOR.ResourceID left JOIN v_GS_X86_PC_MEMORY ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_GS_X86_PC_MEMORY.ResourceID left JOIN v_R_System ON v_GS_SYSTEM.ResourceID = v_R_System.ResourceID left JOIN v_R_User on V_R_system.User_Name0 = V_R_user.Full_User_Name0 JOIN v_FullCollectionMembership fcm on fcm.resourceid=v_r_system.resourceid WHERE fcm.Collectionid= @Collection
  5. i did verify it and it came back with a success message, thats what had me puzzled when i went back and reevaluated my work
  6. Niall, after spending another hour on the issue i managed to find a resolution to that error. For future reference for anyone with this issue: Error: Failed to save the current environment block (Error:80070057) Resolution: This is due to the wrong password being entered in the Network Access Account.
  7. HI guys, wondering if anyone has seen this error before. I am attempting to pxe boot a hyperV virtual machine and complete a build and capture. It successfully formats the disk and gets to the applying operating system stage and then halts. This is what is listed in smsts.log -Failed to save the current environment block. This is usually caused by a problem with the program. The parameter is incorrect (Error:80070057) Failed to presist execution state. Error:80070057 -Failed to save execution state and environment to local hard disk
  8. We too are looking to deploy Z90D7 Thin Clients. We done a build and capture and have created a task sequence. We have been successful in deploy it though after a restart the unit gets stuck at a grub boot loader screen, so I was looking for something like this and the link is dead any chance you can put it up again
  9. Run the following report. Confirm the package name and ID. Go back into the SCCM console and add the server in question to the distribution points for this packge. The right click on distribution points and select 'manage distribution points' and select next> Update all distribution points with new package source and version>next and place a tick in the box for the server in question>next>finish. Now Right click again on the 'distribution points' in the left pane and select 'update distribution points' and press yes. Report Category Software Distribution - Packages Report Name All active package distributions ..........If this still doesn't work, the next option is to clear it in the sql db which I can give u instructions on how to do (yes its unsupported from MS but we do it quiet often for stuck packages)
  10. a lot of work, you need to extend the AD schema, full rights to the OU for the devices and users (which you should keep in separate OU's) and use the ldap function for your discovery methods in the SCCM console. Create a security group in AD to place all sccm servers in that group, that way for long term management you don't need to add each new server to the primary etc

    big report

    "permission was denied on the object" do you have full reporting rights for your user account ?
  12. winproj.exe is the same exe name for both standard and professional, so for software metering it is hard to distinguish which is which. The best way from a licensing point of view is to setup asset intellingence, which I have documented: http://www.windows-n...-up/#entry21586 Next run the following- Report Name: License 14A - Microsoft Volume Licensing Reconciliation Report From here you will be able to seperate visio std and pro and total installation count and the option to expand it to show each device
  13. When the update is scheduled to run, monitor the 'ServiceWindowManager.log' file using trace32. Also a great 3rd party tool is 'SCCM Client Centre'. If you install this on your device and then connect the device in question, you can view the maintenance window from Advertisements> Schedules
  14. Most AutoCAD deployments I have completed have been quiet simple. I'm not sure on prior to 2009 but all software since have had a built in deployment tool. You simply click through the wizard and it will build you a package. Then using a command line like the one below. Keep in mind you will need to change the variable name of the *.ini file, to whatever you named it: %~dp0AdminImage\setup.exe /W /Q /I "%~dp0AdminImage\AutoCAD 2011.ini" /language en-US
