  1. What about spinning up a windows 7/10 DP for this - would this work for you until you have the server infrastructure to configure a standard DP?
  2. No- not out of the box - you will need 3rd party tools to do this - possibly some deployed scripts to shutdown on a schedule and WOL tools to power up on a schedule.
  3. Is it not possible to create a custom anti-malware policy to tell these remote clients to go to MS update? - deploy it to the collection(s) these systems reside in.
  4. Same as Niall - vanilla wim - all LOB software deployed as part of the TS - office updated after the OS install. Every 3 months use the offline servicing component to inject available updates for wim for future deployments.
  5. It should not be a requirement to use the TS Variable _SMSTSMachineName in order to retain a known system's name with a refresh - CM will do this all by itself. If this is the same TS that is been used for known and unkown then remove this task sequence variable as per the reason above.
  6. Agree with Garth - keep it simple if device limits are acceptable. Primary & DPs. Do the DP's need to point back to the Primary? In a SCCM hierarchy all site servers have to point back(communicate if this is what you mean) to the Site Server - CAS - Primary(s)-Secondary(s)-DP(s) so a COMMs link is required in order for systems in remote locations to successfully send back CM info to site server. How will that be on bandwidth? Ultimately depends on total amount of managed systems at remote locations requiring policies from PS. DPs can be throttled if required. Install the MP, SUP on the DP's? Again depends on amount of devices at remote locations and also the link type in terms of bandwidth. If link is good then possibly no need for additional MP, SUP. That's a call you make yourself as you know the network.
  7. If you wish to rename prior to OSD within windows you could do it through WMIC command. This will allow you to remove the dashes as needed. The only downside is that you will need to create a extensive batch file if a large amount of PCs needs to be changed, oldname and new desired name but with excel you can do this easily and export. Syntax WMIC ComputerSystem where Name="XX-XXX-PC01" call Rename Name="AABBB-PC01" WMIC ComputerSystem where Name="XX-XXX-PC01" call Rename Name="BBCCC-PC01" WMIC ComputerSystem where Name="XX-XXX-PC01" call Rename Name="CCDDD-PC01" Create a package with batch file as above - create custom TS and copy script locally to all desired PCs from within the TS then use run command line to execute batch file locally at each PC and use an account that has domain rights to execute script in run command line. Place restart command in TS and then you could do another run command line to execute a DDR to update the CMDB with new names when the systems start backup from previous restart. WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000003}" /NOINTERACTIVE execute a delay of a 2-3 minutes so that the systems has time to update information to site server after the DDR has executed and then do another restart to update the DNS records of each systems change if you want remote control to work immediately etc... You'll need to update the collections in the console after all is finished to reflect name changes. Not the most convenient way of achieving this but will work - and works in windows which is a bonus.
  8. Have so far promoted 4 2K16 DCs to an existing forest and all seems fine in terms of ADDS replication/services/search etc etc.. What is the machine above you are querying from? Is it the DC on server 2016? Looks like machine you are querying from is not authenticated to domain fully - or the unknown users are no longer existent or are from an old domain?
  9. Maybe diskpart manually and clean disk etc.. and try again with CM task sequence!
  10. Seems like a HDD issue i/o error is it just a particular system or is it multiple systems? if one system have you tried new HDD - or use diskpart to delete and create new partitions
  11. SATA - max 30-35 mins - vanilla image with updates - all basic software packages including Office Pro - some business configurations\apps - NO updates - SSD - 20-25 mins 4 mins ready for logon does sound somewhat unbelievable to lay down a full OS to a system - even if it was a fat image - it probably takes that to apply the OS to disk - again depends on HW and network infra to HW
  12. A.Kassem To collect monitor details you could setup this - http://exar.ch/collecting-monitor-serial-numbers-with-sccm/ Take note - unfortunately it will not inventory Monitors that are connected to some models of KVM splitters.
  13. spgsitsupport to say this is confusing is an understatement
  14. Created ADRs for the new update servicing models, some while back now - Monthly rollup and .NET updates. ADR's created fine with no errors - for example ADR:.NetReliabilityMonthlyUpdateWin7 ADR:Windows8.1MonthlyRollUp Have just stumbled across a possible bug - maybe this is a known bug or is isolated to this CM setup. When you go into the properties of the SUG it states that I must specify a valid name for software update group? It is due to the single . in the names of the ADRs - can anyone confirm they have similar issue? Have re-edited name of SUG removing any single .'s from name and all is OK I have came across this blog that states changing the desc and name of SUGs have no bearing on the deployments and will not trigger another cycle - https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/a9560993-efa6-48a8-a28a-bb0d5a472bef/sug-name-change?forum=configmanagersecurity Thanks
  15. Or any that will work - try windows 10 image on it
  16. What OS are you trying to load onto it? From what I can remember Win 7 will not work - Win10 had no issues from my own experience. Toshiba do not have W7 storage controller drivers for this NVMe drive as far as I know..
  17. I thought it may be worth a try - maybe this can shed some more light on it as it seems to be a known issue with HP (not sure how related this is to your issue - last comment on the link) https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/PXE-UEFI-and-Secure-Boot/td-p/5080930
  18. Just out of curiosity have you tried booting when secure boot is disabled on these models?
  19. It is not a supported function from Microsoft! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/259670/pxe-clients-computers-do-not-start-when-you-configure-the-dynamic-host-configuration-protocol-server-to-use-options-60,-66,-67 quote: Important: Microsoft does not support the use of these options on a DHCP server to redirect PXE clients It is after all a Microsoft product you are using, so I would imagine Microsoft would not recommend best practices otherwise! FYI: I had similar issues to what you are describing, but when options where removed as recommended from numerous blogs and IP helpers configured all worked seamlessly whether its a BIOS or UEFI boot. Also another reason as to why you should use IP helpers: https://www.windows-noob.com/forums/topic/15029-can-only-uefi-pxe-nce-no-longer-pxe-boots-afterwards/
  20. Have you specified that the laptop is to use UEFI only in the BIOS, as your TS has both BIOS and UEFI enabled? Enabling the network stack only gives you the UEFI boot options, I know the E7270's come with UEFI mode enabled by default and you have to then enable use UEFI stack to get the option, maybe 74xx's are same but you mention that you can image fine in Legacy BIOS so maybe you haven't reverted back fully to UEFI when trying? Also disable secure boot if imaging in UEFI and using Windows 7.
  21. DHCP options are not supported, use IP helpers instead which are configured on the core switches of the network. You cant image an x86 machine using a x64 boot image but you can however image an x64 machine using an x86 boot file, would that be what you mean by it breaks my 32bit OSD
