  1. I have multiple sites in my environment. sccm 2007 sp1 is configured on a server in the main office using server 2008 r2 standard. I have a branch office server running server 2003. clients in that site are able to get windows updates without issue. I have the pxe service point configured on the master server but the branch office server is not responding to pxe requests. the shares are configured and the boot and windows images have copied over successfully. I was under the impression that I do not need to install sccm 2007 on media servers for my remote sites. am I missing something in the configuration for these remote sites? I do not have an option to configure a new windows 2008 server at these sites. I have to use the existing server 2003 servers. they are configured as file/print servers. they have local dhcp servers on site. wds feature is installed.
  2. I'm not seeing any ports blocked and the service account has permissions to the folder. Is there a log I can look at that will help me isolate this issue?
  3. after checking I see the status as install pending. it has previous revisions though.
  4. Thanks for all the information. I was able to successfully push the IE updates using the software updates option. I did come across 1 problem. One of our remote sites gets the list of updates for IE but they get stuck at downloading and can never actually download the update. It just hangs. Does not error out or anything. Do I need to set a windows update role for the distribution point? I've also discovered that they havent been getting any windows updates as well.
  5. This wont conflict with any software or OS deployment?
  6. security updates, critical updates and updates.
  7. I deployed updates last month without issue. What do you mean by classification?
  8. I am trying to deploy the software update to my system and this is what appears in the smscliui.log Site is in mixed mode. Internet tab will not be displayed. smscliui 1/17/2013 3:12:06 PM 10340 (0x2864) Perform Action: Updates Source Scan Cycle - {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000113}.

  9. The software update configuration is not set up for internet explorer. its only set up for windows 7. This was all configured by an employee who is no longer here. I have been trying to learn how to configure it myself. I have learned a lot but there is still more I need to learn. I have been testing the update to my system without success. I was trying a new route with a dynamic collection.
  10. So I checked the client agents and the software inventory client agent is set to run every 7 days. so, if i'm thinking about this correctly, the software should already be inventoried and when I create the dynamic group it should automatically add those resources based on the last inventory cycle. I changed the inventory cycle to 1 day to see if more resources add tomorrow. Since internet explorer does not show up in programs and features for windows 7 will it still show up in the query i posted above? Thank you for your assistance Peter and Garth. I appreciate it.
  11. Is it possible to force this to occur? I am being asked to deploy a zero-day security update for IE.
  12. I created a collection to dynamically add resources. here is the query language: select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_SoftwareProduct on SMS_G_System_SoftwareProduct.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SoftwareProduct.ProductName = "Internet Explorer 8" Some resources get added but not what I'm expecting. I am using this group membership to apply internet explorer updates. Is there a way I can force systems to check against the query and add to the group? Thanks, Justin
