  1. I just wanted to update that I did in fact were able to get my VM back. Enough to log in and see my data again and back up. As always... thank you @anyweb
  2. Oh wait... I might have figured it out, you just select the folder level and not select any specific file type. Ran into some errors but working through it.
  3. Ah, gotcha. So, when I go to Import > select location folder, it doesn't see the VMCX or VMGS file's. Screenshot below shows the path i took and the right window shows there are files in there.
  4. Thanks for the quick response @anyweb yeah, I tried the import option and it didn't recognize any of the files in the snapshots or virtual machine folders that I have. I'm guessing it won't see it unless you had exported the VM previously. I may have to bit the bullet and just start fresh again... ouch!
  5. Hi Intelligent guru's, I have a question with my current scenario. I recently had to reload my windows OS that I was hosting my Hyper-V VM's on. I stored my Hard Disk Image File and AVHDX File, and also my Virtual Machines snapshots in a separate partition. Is it possible to create the new VM's with the existing snapshots? I am able to attach the HDI files, but that only takes me to the base load. When I try to attach AVHDX file, it errors. I'm just not too sure where to begin. Thanks,
  6. Hey Folks, I've been pondering some time what is the best method to create a shared calendar for conference rooms. I have been utilizing the Resources > 'Rooms & Equipment' from the Admin portal. But recently, I was wanting to add the conference room calendars to the Intranet sharepoint site. It appears you can not do so from the Resource section. Versus if you create a conference room from Microsoft 365 groups, then you can use the "Group calendar" within sharepoint and choose the specific conference rooms from there. Also, you would be able to make that group a dynamic group, so it would automatically add the members to the group. I just wanted to get some of your opinions what you guys think. The big win for me is utilizing the dynamic group to add to the calendar vs always have to add / remove members to the Resources rooms manually. My take and please correct me if i'm wrong. ==================== Rooms & Equipment Negative: Can not dynamically add members to the calendar for permissions. Can not add calendar to the Sharepoint site (company intranet). Pros: Easy and fast to use ( I just wanted to put something in pro for this, but can't really think of one) ==================== Microsoft 365 Group Negative: I do not like how the group would now show under TEAMs Pros: You can create dynamic users to automatically add members for permission to calendar Can be displayed in Sharepoint 'Group Calendar' ====================
  7. **UPDATE** Okay, what worked for me was reading through this article https://timmyit.com/2018/12/17/mdm-join-an-already-azure-ad-joined-windows-10-pcs-to-intune-with-a-provisioning-package/ I already had an RMM in placed for my side of things, so, I just used the Powershell script that he had and pushed that out to all the devices. Once I did that, all the devices started to enroll into Intune. Learning Experience: Keep Note: If you started off with MSFT standard license and down the road you upgrade to a premium license. The above resolution will most likely fix your problem. I have attached zip file just in case Timmy site down the road goes offline. MDM_File.zip
  8. Not in the Device Event logs itself. But I have read some where that if the existing devices were Azure AD joined already with the standard license, then you upgrade to the intune licenses... The existing devices will not automatically join. I'm trying to look around and confirm that as we speak. That might explain why it wouldn't work and if I manually unjoin the device and rejoin them, it will then enrol
  9. Hi Everyone, I've tried to do some searches here but didn't narrow down to my solution. Story: I've updated my licenses and upgraded Standard to now Business Premium, which now I would be able to enroll and manage my devices. Issue: None of the devices that are currently Azure AD Joined are enrolling into Intune. They still show MDM none and N/A for Compliant. Now, if I would disconnect the user from the device and azure join them again, then the device will become compliant and enroll into intune. Spot checked: verified licenses for the users. verified auto-enrollment for all users enabled MDM. verified on several devices for the Device state to confirm azure AD joined and URL. verified the Device settings that all users can join devices. Checked enrollment restrictions. My Question: It is odd to me that if I Azure AD join a device now, it will work, but none of the current legacy devices before the license upgrade would auto enroll. I prefer not going to each machine and have the users unjoin and rejoin for this to work. Is there anything i'm missing or not catching? Thanks,
  10. Hi, I'm just tapping into Intune and was curious if we can manage Workgroup machines? Thanks,
  11. Right, you could use Cireson Asset Management and create a connector to other Databases and bring over. I have screenshots of how its done and looks like.
  12. @A.Kassem Garth is correct, I wouldn't go about it via CM. SErvice Manager would be able to help with bringing in devices from CM. Then you could use third party like Cireson which has Asset Management tool that plugs into SM. You'll be able to manage your asset lifecycle from there. http://cireson.com/apps/asset-management/
  13. Sorry, yes it was working until they realized Service Manager had gone down after Configuration Manager was installed. After looking through what was going on, they saw that both SM and CM was trying to use port 1433 and for Service Manager, that is not a configurable port. Thanks Garth and quick responses! Doing a site recovery could do the trick for them, and you're right, it is best to have SQL on same site server anyway especially if its stand alone.
  14. Yeah, that's what I thought as well too. Client just so happen to have started the process this way. Luckily this environment is fairly new build, so worse case we could do a rebuild. But to avoid that, if we back up the instance and install SQL on the same Site Server, How do i tell CM to point to the new DB?
  15. Question: Regarding to the Port 1433. We had installed Configuration Manager 2012 R2 to point to the same Database server as Service Manager, but on a different Instance. It come to find out that both SM and CM using Port 1433 is a no go. How would I go about chaing Configuration Manager to point to a new port if i assign it port 1434? Or is it better to just create a new database server for CM and some how to tell it to point to the new Database Server? Thanks,
  16. Hi Guys, Question with Step 5 to create and then Distribute the Configmgr Client package to DP's ... is this still required for 2012 R2 to do? What is the exact reasoning to do this? Thanks,
  17. Hi Guys, I was wondering what is a standard or best practice on setting up the drive partition for a Primary Standalone? The way i'm thinking or have is 4: 1. OS 2. Software Package 3. Software Update 4. Images Does that sound about right? Thanks,
  18. BRS, the step by step guide is very helpful... be sure to read over it few times to understand before actually building it. If possible, build in VM first as practice run.... Other than that you will run into small issues that you can not avoid, but just ask questions and someone will be willing to help. I noticed that you having one drive to have all your packages, apps... etc.. I highly recommend for you to have at about 7 partitions (my opinion). You want to have the Configuration manager installed in separate partition from the local desk drive. then you will have SQL partition for backup, tempDB, log, and Data. all those are its own separate partition. After that I have partition for the DPs and I would store the application under that. This is what I just did, don't know what best practice would be but this made for ease of separation and organization. Thanks
  19. Peter, I'm curious... what would happen if you still have old environment in AD and active? My company upgraded from 2007 to 2012 and currently migrated everything over, but the 2007 environment is still up for a few more months before decommission. What conflict would happen if both environment is stood up and also still in AD? Note: we have already have all clients moved over to the 2012 environment. Thanks,
  20. Guys I have fixed my issue... I went into the regedit and deleted the SMS REG folder. located at: HKLM\software\Microsoft\SMS You would also want to make sure the SQL folder is also deleted in the Programs files of Windows. So, after making sure all is cleaned to near fresh machine again... I ran the secondary creation again from console and I was able to get everything re-installed and read ACTIVE now. Thanks,
  21. Hi Guys, I am having separate issue with deleting secondary. On my first attempt creating Secondary Site Server from the console to a server that is in another region, it passed the prerequisite, but eventually "failed to install". Stupid me, I didn't really pay attention what failed, I just went ahead and did a delete to start over the install from console. When I initiated the Secondary installation for the second time.. it failed to install again, this time I looked at the "show install status" what caused the failure. It showed "Site server or site system role is already installed ......." and "SQL was installed....." So, I went into the server to look and it does show from the first attempt it had successfully installed on the server although the console showed "failed to install". I did an delete again from console and gave it some time to replicate. It was cleared from console, but it does not appear it would delete from the site server itself. This is where i believe i screwed up! I uninstalled manually the SQL server from programs and features first, then the Microsoft System center. Now, when I try to uninstall the Microsoft System Center I get this error: So, I had tried is install Sql express manually hoping Configuration Manager would pick it up and it appears that does not work either. I get the same error message. Anyone have an idea how to remove the configuration manager manually so I could push this through again from the console? Is there any powershell trick to get this done i wonder? Thanks all for help,
  22. Thanks Peter, yeah it is installing. Right now i'm working on finding the issue why is the client finding the old site code from the 2007 environment instead of the 2012 site code. Our old SCCM 2007 has not been decommission yet, but our SCCM 2012 should be the main now. By looking at the Health check log, its doing query AD and installing the old 2007 client. So, i'm trying to find a way to force it to query the 2012.
  23. is Jason's script suppose install the client if we point to where to install from? I'm just wondering if the script detects no client on a machine, if it would automatically install one from a specific path Thanks,
  24. Hi guys, is this Health Check Tool still the one to use and be used in the 2012 CM environment? I found another one by Jason that I understand a bit better but not sure if it works the same? http://blog.configmgrftw.com/configmgr-client-startup-script/
