  1. Hi all, Maybe someone has some knowledge on this topic and could help find a solution to my problem : - We have various models of Lenovo computers in my company, and we want to install all needed drivers and applications from Lenovo Update Retriever using ThinInstaller. - I got it working fine using a separated Task Sequence deployed to a collection that I can run from Software Center. So running it in Windows when logges in is working just perfectly. - Now I would like to integrate the same steps inside my current OS deployment task sequence (we are deploying Windows 10 Enterprise edition). - When I run the same command lines inside the OSD TS, it copies the files of ThinInstall on C:\ThinInstaller correctly, but the second command that runs effectively ThinInstaller seems to not be run at all (no logs in thininstaller folder, when it is working there is some...) - The steps are currently close to the end of my OSD TS, after a reboot to the installed operating system (so not in WinPE). The commands are the following : Step 1 : Copy ThinInstaller xcopy "\\server\share-to-thininstaller-folder\*.*" "C:\ThinInstaller" /E /Z /Y /I > This commands is running as a domain admin account, and run as expected (all files are copied correctly to the local disk). Step 2 : Run ThinInstaller ThinInstaller.exe /CM -search A -action INSTALL -noicon -includerebootpackages 1,3,4 -noreboot -repository "\\SERVER\LENOVO-REPOSITORY" Start In : C:\ThinInstaller Runs as a domain admin account > This command to not run at all (nothing found in the logs). I tried to change the step 2 with a batch file, same result. Also tested to remove the "run as" option, no luck. And again, the exact same command lines run perfectly in a separated task sequence ran from Software Center... I'm stucking here right now and is out of clue.. If anyone has an idea how to achieve that, he is more than welcome ! Thanks all in advance for your help, Cheers Jocelyn
  2. Hi all, I'm now very close to have a 100% working Standalone installation but I still have one small issue : After installation, the ConfigMgr client is installed but not configured properly. Actually, there is no site code defined in the client that link to my primary site server. I put this settings in the installation step of TS : SMSMP=FQDN_of_my_primary_server The same TS of course works perfectly when it runs from the network, i have this issue only when running from the standalone media. Any idea? Thanks Jo.
  3. I solved my issue... it was related to a missing driver package for the ethernet adapter of the test machine...
  4. Hi, let me explain my scenario : I have a UDI TS that works perfectly through the network. This is the productive TS for all OSD in my company and works well since years. For some reason, I need to create standalone media for some offices with slow connections and no DP. So I just created the standalone media using the console wizard and created a boot stick. it is almost 11Gb. So far so good, the standalone media works, I boot on it, run the TS, see the UDI Wizard as usual, fill all the information, etc. After the deployment (no error message), I see the machine not joined to the domain... I searched a lot on the internet but it seems this is not a very common scenario what I try to achieve... It seems the variables set in the UDI Wizard are definitely not taken into considerations when running from a standalone media or i'm doing something wrong... Is there anything special to configure when creating the standalone media ? (variables to declare ?) I'm wondering if such a scenario has been already successfully done by someone... Thanks for your help and ideas ! Jo.
  5. I have exactly the same scenario : I have a UDI TS that works perfectly through the network. For some reason, I need to create standalone media for some offices with slow connections and no DP. It seems the variables set in the UDI Wizard are definitely not taken into considerations. Joining the domain doesn't work, computername remains the default one, etc. I'm wondering if such a scenario has been already successfully done by someone...
  6. This is exactly what I did.. I add IE11 in the correct Software Update group. Then I run the ADR rule. Then I have a look in the software update group again > IE11 is not there anymore... I'm totally lost.. I will maybe just recreate my software update group from the beginning if I cannot find something better...
  7. hi all, I expose my issue : in the begining of the deployment of Software update, we added by error Internet Explorer 11 in the Software Update Group for all of the Windows 7 updates. We removed this update from the software update group at the request of our direction, and now it's time to add it again as we want to make it available. So what we did : go to Software updates > Select Internet Explorer 11 (which is already downloaded) > Right Click > Edit Membership > Check the Software Update Group where it belongs to. Problem : after several hours (I think when the ADR runs), Internet Explorer 11 is automatically unchecked from the Software update group. Impossible to keep it checked and available for this group... To be honest, I have already search for a long time now and I'm totally out of new ideas.. Does anyone have an idea what could happened or if i'm making something wrong?? Thanks in advance, Jo
  8. Hi all, I've already seen couple of topics here regarding this issue. Unfortunately, I can't get it working... What I try to do : I have an OSD Task Sequence with UDI integrated. This task sequence is available for configuration manager clients through the Software Center and for PXE installations. For PXE, my boot image is protected with a password, so it can be sufficient. For Software Center, I would like to have a HTA that popups, request a password and validate it. I have tried this thread but can't get it working in Windows neither WinPE environment... nothing popups... http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2336-password-protect-a-task-sequence/ Any help is welcome... or better if there is already some kind of HTA that works on both WinPE and Windows environment but i'm dreaming I think... Thanks Jo
  9. Hi, No, the 2 zones are different boundaries. But the 2 boundaries are part of the same Boundary group, and this group is linked to the correct DP...
  10. Hi all ! I'm quite new on this forum, so I hope posting at the correct place... I'm designing a new SCCM 2012 infrastructure currently in my company. I'm making my tests in a lab environment with 3 locations : Datacenter + 2 "virtual" locations. Currently there is only 1 primary site installed in the Datacenter. OSD works using PXE boot for a machine located on the same subnet (Datacenter subnet). So far so good. I managed to make PXE boot working for a machine located on the virtual remote locations. I can boot, it loads the boot image, then when it tries to run the task sequence, it fails. Of course, it is pretty sure that it's due to the fact that I have no DP installed in this location and something should be wrong in my TS or packages... Do you know what is the best Practice to make an OSD with PXE boot available from a remote location that has no DP ? In some small offices we have, we really want to get rid of local servers. Thanks a lot for your help, hope my question is bit clear... Jo.
