  1. Question on setting up multicast? What kind of bandwidth chatter do you guys see when turning on SCCM 2012 R2 multicast for image deployments? My network guys are not wanting to turn on multicast on the router/switches because they say it causes too much traffic network wide. Do you guys see this as an issue? We've discussed putting a DP at each of our 20 remote sites, they have 100MB connections but we're saturating those with only a few non-multicast deployments running at one time. So why would multicast cause more traffic when that's what we're trying to avoid? How do you guys deploy images to 30+ computers at a time without saturating your networks? We used to use Altiris and it would make one machine the master then the rest clients so it would only push one image for all 30 machines.
  2. Hello, Wondering if someone could help me out. I'm trying to do a build and capture including Software Updates. I can do a build and capture (without) Software Updates and everything works fine. But when I include Software Updates, the task bar will just sit there for like 30 minutes then finally fail. Times out I guess. It never does any updates. I am able to image a computer with software updates but I'd like to include updates in the image to save time. And the schedule updates on the system image only installs a few updates then I end up with 100 updates still to do after imaging. I can't do this when I have 30 machines to image. I have included the SMSMP=FQDN in the config and put my B&C collection in my Software Updates Group. Any ideas?

Go into your sources and delete the .wim file and rename the wim.bak file sccm backed up for you. I've found I can only do about 8 updates at a time and do not check the continue on error box
  4. Wonder if someone can help me figure this out, I have an issue with updates installing inside business hours. We have SCCM 2012 and we've configured our updates to install after 6pm on Wed but we do NOT have them checked to restart or update during business hours. The deadline is Thursdays 1AM UTC which is 6pm Wed our time, the default business hours are from 5am to 10pm. We've had a few hundred machines that have installed updates at 9am Wed morning, they upgraded to IE 10 and a few other updates. I checked their logs and sure enough they went and installed and sccm called for a restart of the machines. We did have IE 9 set to auto upgrade checked but most of our machines 3500+ updated as normal after the deadline and outside business hours.
  5. Hmmm I think I'm just going to use PDQ Inventory it's simple and I can import all my AD assets.
  6. We're moving from Altiris 6.9 to SCCM 2012 and one thing I keep jumping back into Altiris for is to quickly see if a computer's on and who's logged into it. What do you all use?
  7. I created a task sequence to uninstall Adobe Reader from a collection of computers and then install a modified version of Reader with a specific path. It's working but...I'm wondering how I go about getting SCCM to reinstall the modified version if a user updates Reader and breaks the specified path I have set? These computers are part of a collection so if a user updates Reader will SCCM run the deployment again or would I have to manually run the deployment again? Make sense?
