  1. Not a useful reply, but just an FYI - i was on the same boat for months. My SUP and WSUS was hosted on the same site as my primary being destroyed by CPU, thought it was the IIS app pools, but was not.

    I ended up moving it to its own standalone server and installed the SUP on that as a brand new install on a new DB.Runs so much smoother since i've done that.I inherited the WSUS environment by somebody else who hadn't kept it indexed or run regular maintenance on it. it was at least 3 years old and had ran itself into the ground.

    Also running on 1702

  2. We have boundaries defined with the IP addresses range & Clients of particular Boundary group is assigned with DP of their IP address range only.still clients searches for updates & gets updates directly from site server.This causes the heavy bandwidth utilization, please help.


    Either your boundaries are not configured correctly, or the content isn't available on the local site server and fallback has been enabled on your other server, hence it going across the wan

  3. Hi all,


    I'm going insane trying to resolve this.


    I keep getting the 'Specify User Credentials' as soon as the Gather step runs in the task sequence.


    In my customsettings.ini i've specified the correct UserID, UserPassword and UserDomain variables.


    I can even type them in to the box as they are, and it the continues through the whole TS without problems.


    Updated all boot images, deployment shares, the lot. my bootstrap.ini has the information in too, and i've verified that the client is downloading the right customsettings.ini package by finding it in command prompt in WinPE, all looks ok.


    Any idea's where i'm going wrong here? even after endless googling and trying all suggestions i'm still stuck :|



  4. Can you verify what version of ConfigMgr you have installed? you mention R1 but i'm not sure what version that's referring to


    Before you can manage and deploy Windows 10 in your organisation, you need to update your ConfigMgr infrastructure.


    You'll want at least SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 or SCCM 2012 SP2 to manage Windows 10. You'll need to apply R2 SP1 Cumulative update, and update your WinPE Images to the Windows 10 ADK.


    Highly suggest installing Current Branch for SCCM - version 1606 if you're going to be managing and deploying windows 10 so you can deploy servicing plans and manage win updates.

  5. Build a collection based on uptime, and advertise the TS to that collection?


    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_OPERATING_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_OPERATING_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where DATEDIFF(DD, SMS_G_System_OPERATING_SYSTEM.LastBootUpTime, GETDATE()) > 14

  6. If this is across the LAN you won't have network issues at all. Clients checking for updates / hardware scans will send a few KB's to the management point - that's not going to cause network load issues.

    For your remote office, setup a distribution point and have clients there look to the DP for their content, then they won't go across the WAN.


    How have you managed to get 400 updates in just July 2016 alone?


    With all due respect to your manager it sounds like she doesn't really know a lot about networks, nor how SCCM works.

  7. Yes, any machines added after a deadline will run anything assigned to deploy to that collection, the same goes for task sequences, pacakges, and apps.


    You can install drivers to an OS after a deployed method by other means, you'd just need to package these and test on the machines prior to deploying to confirm functionality. It'll more than likely require a reboot, but if the driver packages have an auto setup feature it'll work.


    The other option you have is to manually load drivers using the command line. (Although I've not tested this)
