  1. Hi, I have a strange issue with a single CM client machine, the application discovery will not run. I go to control panel and try to manually run the action but the logs show nothing new in appdiscover.log. Everything seems ok including software updates and end point protection updates. The only thing that has happened to this machine (which happens to be my machine) is that I moved it to a new OU. I have tried removing my machine from CM and uninstalling using the 2003toolkit ccmclean.exe /all command. Then re installing the client manually and re discovering my machine. It populates in CM, adds to the correct groups, refreshes policies, gets end point protection information but still won't do any app discovery. Does anyone know of any troubleshooting to try from here? Using SCCM 2012. Cheers, Troy.
  2. Hi, I'm just looking for some clarification on Auto Updates and suppressing restarts. I am just testing the updates but have a couple of users that a being prompted for a restart but would like for them to never be prompted and let their nightly shutdown perform that purpose. I created a TEST Windows 7 Auto Update Rule some time ago and this rule generated a TEST Windows 7 Software Update Group. When looking for the suppress option I noticed there is a User Experience settings for the properties on the auto deployment rule, so I set these for Software Install, and Suppress for Servers and Workstations. When I looked at the Software Update Groups I also noticed User Experience settings for the deployment. What is the difference between the user experience settings under the properties of the Auto Deployment Rule and user experience settings under the properties of the deployment from Software Update Groups? Cheers,
  3. Hi, I was just wondering if there is a best practice use of Content Location field when creating new applications. I had an install of Smartstream I was doing and copied some files from our finance server to my source directory and created my application. The problem I found is that the program has some links back to the install directory which was now C:\ccmcache instead of the finance server network share. Also finance do their own patching and modify some of the source files on the network location which will automatically patch their client. Generally the install was done with a .bat file just pointing at the installer on the network share. So this time I created an application and didn't set a content location, pointed the command line at the installer and provided the network share as the start in field. Everything installed fine. So my question is what is the "best practice" for installing apps. Is this legit way of doing things or is it intended that we already download source files to ccmcache? Cheers,
  4. Thanks guys, I stumbled across the redistribute option like St3yr mentioned and this seems to work now. I noticed the long ID of the deployment has some .1 .2 .3 etc on the end must be revisions. I think with your solution TheProj you can only run setup.exe /adminfile xxx.msp once. We already have general user MSP install we use for the Office installation so can't use another MSP install. Thanks for the help guys learning new tips everyday! Cheers,
  5. Hi, I am having an issue with updating an application's source file and redistributing the content. I am running Office 2010 Access installation using "setup.exe /config Access.en-US\config.xml" The problem I am having is the original config.xml has the option to install Publisher. I changed the XML but everytime the application downloads to C:\Windows\ccmcache it has the old config.xml present. I have tried to redistribute the content on under "Content Locations". Also tried removing the content and distributing it once more. It seems to succeed but I still get the old files. Have also tried turning off the option that lets you download from other clients on the same subnet. I stil get the old files. I clear ccmcache each time to force a download of the files. Does anyone have any ideas or know what log files might show up what is going on? Cheers,
  6. Hi David, When I was playing around with OSD I had split my tasks up into a "Deploy task" and "Caputre task" so I could do some tweaks in between. I found that with the capture I was initially trying to run this from PXE which kept failing when in fact I needed to run it from the software portal. I don't remember the error I was getting but it may be similar to what you are experiencing.
  7. Hi Peter, Not sure if I explained myself correctly. I basically have an installation to run (HP TRIM) this installation which puts three desktop icons to C:\Users\Public\Desktop. Two icons are not needed so I need to remove these. For the HP TRIM deployment method I use the msi detection that works no problem. Two remove the icons I have a script to delete them which I have made into a second deployment type. I can't use a built in file detection as I want to run my script if the icons are there (therefore run script to delete them) but if the files are detected the deployment method is says it is installed and the script won't run to delete the icons. Basically I think I need a big NOT in front of the file detection. So I tried to to a custom detection script above which I'm not sure how to exit out for detection. I suppose a work around would be to wrap the TRIM msi and then my file delections in one script, do a manual deployment type and just check for TRIM installed. This doesn't seem to be how things are meant to be done though. I really need some sort of post installation task. Cheers,
  8. Hi, I'm having issue using custom detection scripts. More specifically how to exit the detection script to say detected or not. My application is a script that will delete two desktop icons. My detection script checks if and icon exists and if it does increment a count. If the count is 0 that is no icons exist then I want to exit the script and have the application detected as installed. This is what I ran with ... Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") File1="C:\Users\Public\Desktop\HP TRIM Desktop.lnk" File2="C:\Users\Public\Desktop\HP TRIM Queue Processor.lnk" Dim count count = 0 If objFSO.FileExists(File1) then count= count + 1 End If If objFSO.FileExists(File2) then count = count + 1 End If If count = 0 then WScript.Quit(0) End If The logs showed the application not detected so ran my Script correctly. Then when it checked after the install it still showed as undetected. Can anyone explain how I can exist my scripts correctly to show presence of an application? Cheers,
