  1. Hi is it possible to disable Bluetooth file transfer but sill allow Bluetooth to attach Mice, keyboards, etc. Ideal apply this via group policy. Thanks Rob
  2. HI, hope I can explain my problem. I have been asked to deploy applications at deployment. I have been given multiple unique identifiers (UDI) with multiple apps assign to each UID, on a spreadsheet. I can't pre-provision the machines as there are potentially thousands, and can't user deployments as they are shared devices. I am using UDI wizard so could capture the UID as a variable. any ideas on how I do this, without added the machine into collections post build. thanks any ideas welcome.
  3. Hi, I am sure what's happened but under security and certificates, I don't seem to have a site server cert or sms cert. Is there a what I can recreate them easily, no idea where of how they have gone. Boot certs and dp certs are there, If somebody can point me at a how too guide that would really get me out of a jam. Rob
  4. Hi, I am see loads of errors in my status monitor. -------- Could not open a change notification handle for directory "\\servername\SMS_PR1\inboxes\sitectrl.box" because the directory is on a remote computer., ----------- I don't understand the remote server, there are no remote servers. Any logs I can look at to see what it's attempting to refrance. Just to add we did a restore recently. Please help pulling my hair out. Rob
  5. Hi, Evergreen has become the buzz word within the management team in the company, so to achieve this I am working on two solutions. 1. Windows as a service, update the OS, 2. Upgrade task sequence, OS and upgrade some core apps (trying to aviod this) Does anybody have any experience of doing this with Sophos installed and is it going to give me issues, as I think security have enforced Tamper Guard (I think that’s what it is called), we are also using BitLocker encryption. Do I need to do anything to achieve either of the solutions above and which is less pain ? I am assuming the windows as a service update. Any advice really appreciated. P.s. why can't they just use Microsoft AV lol
  6. Hi I have been asked by our management team to write a doc on evergreen and windows 10, and how they utilise the new Buzz word. can anybody point me in the direction of what evergreen actually means, is it upgrade Sequences or windows as a service or both ? any links to other posts or websites would be gratefully received. thanks Rob
  7. Hi, starting working in a place to look after W10 builds/SCCM but the GPO are in a right mess, i am after a method (power-shell script ?) to give me a readable document of ALL the group policies. i used a similar tool to document SCCM setup. I understand i can do GPRESULT /H but i need need something from a global point of view and ideally in word format. Any Suggestions most welcome. Rob

    Skype for busines

    Hi not sure if this is the right place ofr this post, but hopfully somebody can help. just started dipping my toe into O365 and playing arround with skype. I have been creating Office 365 groups then deleteing them for one reason or another, but these records are still showing up in the skype contact list, and i don't mean that i have pinned them. I have even done a clean install of skype then search and they show up. but in 365 groups or mailboxes there is nothing there relating to them. any idea how i get rid of them showing up when i search. thanks. RD
  10. tried several accounts, including domain admin, remotely and local. the icon even appears briefly in control panel and then removes itself.
  11. HI I am having some issues install the sccm client on a LOT of devices, i don't know if its down to the current build (not Mine) or AD or something else. I have included the 2 log files. any help much appreciated. thanks guy, ccmsetup.log client.msi.log
  12. We are doing an image capture primarily for speed of deployment, so we include Office 2013, Adobe, C++, and a few other bits, and then full updates, office/security from standalone WSUS separate from the WSUS that services sccm. I am just trying to streamline and see if I can do it al from SCCM then I don't need to maintain MDT and a secondary WSUS instance. We also do all ref image in VM.
  13. HI Just wanted peoples opinion on how I am currently doing my Ref image, At the moment I do this in a standalone MDT/WSUS, capture then import into sccm where I add business apps during TSQ, is this still the preferred way. but it means I have to maintain WSUS as well as MDT. Or should I be doing I in sccm and capturing, or even with an MDT interrogated task seq and capture? Are there any issues in which the context it creates the image with i.e. Administrator (MDT) System (SCCM) thanks Rob
  14. Thanks for the quick reply, i will prob do as you suggested.
  15. I want to know if i can use a single instance of WSUS for my SCCM server and my standalone MDT server (for Wim creation), as i will surly have to authorize updates in WSUS for MDT. WIll this break the wsus management for SCCM. or will i need 2 separate WSUS instances ? thanks Rob
  16. Thanks will give that a try.
  17. Hi Apologies if this is the wrong place for this question, I have seen/used the great PowerShell scripts for documenting my SCCM setup. but I was wondering is there anything out there similar for generating a Image build release note. i.e. all the apps installed, O/S etc etc, ideally in a nice presentable format. Thanks Rob
  18. Hi We are being moved from our Physical server to a Virtual server (Its the future....) as part of this i am having to move all our source off to a filer. does anybody know of any tools/script will assist me to do this for App-v 4 and App-v 5 applications, i found some script for the other bit but they are struggling with App-v Thanks Rob
  19. Thanks that's useful information, i will check, this could cover App-v and MSI. yes i can see the info in resource explorer so will do some testing. Thanks
  20. Hi 80% of or deployed applications are done under a user context, if we need to remove them from the devices, but the same user never logs onto those devices again, I.e. remove under the system context. will this work or is there another method, we are getting grief from our licencing dept for redundant install everywhere due to hot desk'ing. thanks Rob
  21. yeah that's helped out thanks,
  22. Hi one of of our tech guys must of changed one of the DP's from HTTP to HTTPS, can somebody where this event is logged. i.e. when it was changed and who did it, had a look around a few log files but can't find anything. any info would be great thanks Rob
  23. Hi just a query really on how folks document their image releases/release notes. I as most IT people are very lazy, and was hoping that somebody can point me in the direction of a funky tool that will audit a complete build and output it in a nice format i can then use as a release note. anybody know of anything like this ?? thanks guys, Rob
  24. i thought as much thanks for the help.
