  1. Edge is updating itself while we are using SCCM to manage the updates as this printscreen is proving


    When I go to the CM console you can clearly see this update isn't deployed nor downloaded to the package. It isn't even advertised on


    The latest deployed version is 90.0.818.66


    In Intune we don't have an application to install so I cannot figure out, for now, where this thing is coming?

    Any ideas?

    leave the disc in the machine and try and boot into recovery mode, you'll need the recovery key (available in AD or in CM/MBAM/Azure) otherwise you can't unlock it...


    3 failed boots in a row should force it into recovery mode

    Yes, I have the recovery key from Azure. I'll try the 3 times step and hopefully the recovery will launch.

  3. Some end-users are having some trouble with 365 Apps (O365ProPlusRetail) that says there license is not valid or active. I want to make a query or something to group these machines and apply a regfix.

    But for that I need to find them. We had the ospp.vbs /dstatus before but as the license comes from the cloud (not mak nor kms) I don't know how I can see this. There is a nice guide of Eswar Koneti but not doable for us : https://eskonr.com/2019/09/check-microsoft-office-activation-status-using-sccm-compliance-settings/


  4. I've got the weirdest thing on some machines (200). These were the first bare-metals on 1803 we did, and now we want them to upgrade to 1909. When launching the IPU TS it runs like 8 seconds and the status goes to failed and quickly (like 50ms) it changes to available again.

    I monitored the CCM\logs and "C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\panther" folders but there's no change at all.

    @niall always says that logs are the answer, but I don't even know where to look for them 😪



  5. I just created a lab with 1 AD server and 1 CM server hosting the SQL server service and wsus. After the install I want to upgrade to 2010 directly but I have some network/auth complications with the prerequisite check

    For some reason there's a 'GetFileSize' error on a file which seems to be related to the pt-BR language as everything is en-US based on the servers:


    I attached the logfiles. I enabled 'named pipes'


    I disabled all firewall



    But the prequisite check is still running


    How can I stop/restart this?

    CMUpdate.log distmgr.log

  6. @anyweb we are on CM 2006 with W10 1803 machines (planning to move to 1909) but the regional settings have to be changed to this:


    I tried by deploying a TS with an XML to the actual machines but this only works for the welcome screen and new user accounts, not for the actual already known users. This is an XML I deployed

     <gs:GlobalizationServices xmlns:gs="urn:longhornGlobalizationUnattend">
        <!--User List-->
            <gs:User UserID="Current" CopySettingsToSystemAcct="true" CopySettingsToDefaultUserAcct="true" />
        <!--Display Language-->
            <gs:MUILanguage Value="en-US" />
            <!--<gs:MUIFallback Value="en-UK" /> -->
        <!-- system locale -->
        <gs:SystemLocale Name="en-US"/>
        <!--User Locale-->
            <gs:Locale Name="fr-BE" SetAsCurrent="true" ResetAllSettings="true"/>
        <!--input preferences-->
            <gs:InputLanguageID Action="add" ID="0409:00000813" Default="true"/>
            <gs:InputLanguageID Action="remove" ID="0409:00000409"/>
            <gs:InputLanguageID Action="remove" ID="0809:00000809"/>
            <gs:GeoID Value="21"/>


    Any ideas how to fix that for the known users on the machines?

    Here's my XML file I'm using. Feel free to use and modify etc. 

    Also, there is a group policy under
    Computer Configuration > Policies > administrative templates > Start Menu and Taskbar > Start Layout. Enable the setting, and give it a path (C:\windows\tb_layout\layoutmodification.xml).

    Use a group policy preference to place a folder and the file into whatever location for the machines needing the custom layout. 

    When group policy runs and the next time those computers log in, they should have the custom start menu layout.

    Ok thanks Xerxes, I'll try that out today 😉
