  1. I am using the WOL Proxy in our environment. When the machines are completely powered off the WOL proxy service wakes them with no problem and they run updates and TS's with no problem. However, if they are in sleep mode the WOL proxy service is not able to wake them. I have updated the BIOS on my PC's and enabled WOL and disabled the advanced sleep states like S4. I cannot figure out why the machines will wake when completely powered off but wont wake from Sleep. We are running Windows 7 enterprise 32x. Thanks
  2. In our environment I have 1 primary site server running the SUP role and 5 DP’s, 1 at each of the buildings connected to our WAN. Originally I was installing updates during business hours. I made sure all of my deployments had the Suppress reboots on Servers and Workstations option selected. I also chose to hide all notifications. I expected that the SCCM clients would install updates and keep on kicking like normal without the user having any idea what is happening. Instead I saw that the updates were being installed but the users were being forced to reboot the PC’s. This is a problem for obvious reasons. I tried to extend the grace period for the reboot in the device settings to 8 hours with a 20 minute timer that couldn’t be closed. This didn’t help any, users still complain about reboots during the day and they HATE the dialogue that can’t be closed. In order to remedy this, I configured a maintenance window from 1:00 AM-4:00 AM. I enabled the send wake up packets on all deployments and also enabled the wake up proxy in the client settings. I tested to make sure that clients would indeed wake to run the deployment. I no longer have users complaining about reboots, however when I look at the compliance on the deployments, they are showing TERRIBLE compliance. Out of 2176 machines only 247 are compliant. I can’t figure out why. My best guess is that during the maintenance window my PC’s are either not waking, or they are out of the building (We have a lot of laptops). Or they are not rebooting for some reason. I would like to go back to installing updates during the day because I know all machines will be in the building and powered on, but I don’t want to make the users unhappy with mandatory reboots. Is there a way to configure the SCCM client to allow the users more control over the reboots? I would like the client to notify the user that a restart is required, but I don’t want it to force the reboot. I have seen screen caps online of a dialogue that allows the user to “snooze” the restart for a given amount of time, but have never seen it myself or figured out how to turn it on. I have attached images from google to this post. Thanks for any reply's or help.
  3. I'm still having issues with this. I have triple checked all of my packages and deployments. I have scheduled them all to install at 1:00 Am. I made my maintenance windows 12:00-3:00 AM. I configured a scheduled task to run at 3:00 AM to shutdown the PC's. When I look at the event logs I see the PC's powering on at 12:00 Am, I see the auto shutdown task at 3:00, and then at 3:01 the PC's start right back up. Some times I see them start at 5:00 AM for no reason. Any ideas? Thanks
  4. I think I figured it out. I had an update deploying at 3:00 AM. I'm assuming that the PC's are waking for the update at 3:00 AM, since 3:00 is outside the maintenance window they aren't doing anything but sitting there.
  5. I'm having issues with our Maintenance windows. I have configured my collections with a recurring maintenance window. The window lasts from 1:00 AM to 3:00 AM. All of my deployments are configured to send wake up packets. I have an automated shutdown task that runs every night at 8:00 PM. When I come in in the morning the PC's are all powered up because we have disabled all the sleep settings. The problem is when I look at the event logs I see the PC's are starting up at 3:01 AM everyday. I can't figure out why the PC's are ignoring the maintenance window, and instead starting exactly 1 minute after. Any ideas?
  6. I have enabled Wake Proxy in my environment, I am trying to figure out a way to manually trigger a wake up signal without using a deployment. I downloaded the now micro right click tools and there is an option to WOL, however when I use this tool it only wakes PC's that are on my local subnet. Is there a way to manually trigger a system to wake up using the WOL proxy function?
  7. After Deploying a PC using OSD, the SCCM Client isn't registering. I am able to see it in the console, however, I am not able to remote control it. Also when I look at the client actions from the control panel I only see "Machine Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle" and "User Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle". I have a single primary site SCCM 2012 R2 running on Server 2012 R2. I have 3 Servers running Server 2008 R2 with the MP and DP roles assigned to them. All communications are done via HTTP. The domain firewall is turned off on the site servers and on the client workstations. I have tried re-installing the MP role on all Servers. I see the 87D00231 error in the ClientIDManagerStartup.log, and I see "Failed to send management point list location Request" errors in the LocationServices.log. I believe all of my boundary groups are configured correctly, I have quite a few of them. The clients eventually do connect to the management point if I leave them to sit overnight. I haven't been able to figure out what is causing this behavior.
  8. I too am having this issue, however i see "error 87d00231" in the logs. I am not using HTTPS in my environment. The other strange thing I'm noticing is if I let the workstation sit overnight, in the morning everything is as it should be and the logs show success connecting to the MP. I have one SCCM 2012 R2 primary site running on Server 2012 R2, and several MP's and DP's running on Server 2008 R2 in my environment. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it. Do you have multiple site servers with these roles installed?
  9. I was wondering if there was a general rule of thumb as to when to use this step in a task sequence. I have around 20 applications to deploy in one task sequence, I figure it is probably a good idea to throw a restart or two in there. Any thoughts on this? Thanks
  10. Thank You. That was exactly what I was looking for.
  11. I am trying to figure out which logs I should be looking at to verify which distribution point my client is downloading and installing packages from. I have two DP's each has their own boundary. I am trying to confirm that the clients in the respective boundaries are getting the packages from the right server. Thanks
  12. I am getting errors trying to apply updates to my wim images using the scheduled updates module. The updates are failing to be applied, I am seeing errors 2096, and -2146498512 in my offline servicing mgr log. I have sccm 2012 SP1 installed. I added D:\ConfigMgr_OfflineImageServicing\*.* to my SCEP realtime scan exception list. I have also made sure that the sccm servers computer account is in the local administrators group. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the adk. The target wim file is windows 7 SP1. Here is my log and a sample.

  13. ' Hide the progress dialog Set oTSProgressUI = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSProgressUI") oTSProgressUI.CloseProgressDialog Set oTSProgressUI = Nothing I found this script that will hide the task sequence progress bar, the problem is I have no idea how or where to put it in my task sequence. Could someone throw me a bone please?
  14. I am looking for a way to limit the amount of task sequences I see when I PXE boot a machine to start the imaging process. I share a SCCM 2012 server with 5 other technicians, we advertise all of our task sequences to the unknown computers collection so that we can do bare metal imaging. Right now when I PXE boot a PC I can see around 30 task sequences. I want to see only the task sequences I use, and my co-workers to only see the task sequences they use. I assume this can be done somehow through scripting, but I am a complete noob in that department. Any help is appreciated.
