  1. Hi, I have a new issue in SCSM 2016. I have no reports. I checked SSRS and my account has access, on the console, when I click on reports it's just empty. I upgraded to 2019 and then to 2022 but it stays the same. Updated SQL to their latest CU's too. Any ideas what else to try?
  2. One of the issues I found. The operating system reported error 615: The password provided is too short to meet the policy of your user account. Please choose a longer password.
  3. Hi all, I recently noticed that during OSD, only 1 or 2 steps are displayed during the process. The rest "hides" behind the "Just a moment" Windows loading screen. So I can't open F8 to export the log file, I'm experiencing issues with software that won't install. When the TS is deployed, "Shows steps" is selected. Any ideas?
  4. Don't we have any AD masters here to assist?
  5. Hi all, I have a serious problem with a password policy. When I view the status it indicates that the password can be kept for ages, yet my enforced policy dictates 60 days. The account does expire. User account control attribute is on 512. It's not all the same for everyone on AD. I tried to narrow it down to a policy but cannot find the issue.
  6. Hi all, My endpoint protection clients aren't updating. I noticed it happening this last month. Most clients are 2 to 7 days outdated. They are receiving the correct policy. I'm on SCCM 2203 as of today. Attached 2 images of log files from different clients.
  7. Yes sir, I checked these first. I removed the site system role and added it again. It's busy downloading now and I don't see any errors in my log, for now. I will report back.
  8. Hi everyone, please help me before I crack my scull. I'm unable to update my SCCM server, I'm not sure what happened. I never had this issue. I get the following in the log file, I see the following error/IP but have no idea where to change it, ERROR: Failed to download Admin UI content payload with exception: Unable to connect to the remote server SMS_DMP_DOWNLOADER 2022/06/06 12:18:51 PM 11836 (0x2E3C) Failed to call AdminUIContentDownload. error = Error -2146233079 SMS_DMP_DOWNLOADER 2022/06/06 12:18:51 PM 11836 (0x2E3C) AdminUI Content Download thread is exiting...

  9. I fixed it for now by changing my network adaptor on VMWare from VMXNET3 to E1000E. It now owrks without issues.
  10. Back to square one. It now takes 30minutes just to download the .wim What logs files and events can I refer to for troubleshooting? I cleared required PXE deployments. I updated the distribution points, default boot images and mine. SMSPXE.txt
  11. I think I solved it. I made the RamDiskTFTPBlockSize lower than normal...
  12. Hi gents. I'm pulling my hair out, whole of last week and this week I'm using OSD to deploy PC's for a new contract. Few hours ago all stopped working, any PC or laptop, intel, hp, lenovo. All fail with this error. Nothing on my environment changed. Some research takes me to the March 2019 CU update. It is not installed on my server. Both these registry keys were set back to default with no difference on the outcome. RamDiskTFTPBlockSize RamDiskTFTPWindowSize I also tried this suggestion: https://andys-tech.blog/2019/03/wds-required-device-isnt-connected-or-cant-be-accessed/ The error reads: Status: 0xc0000001 Info: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.
  13. Hi all, I need some help please. I would like to change the default HP logo, the one during boot. According to this article I need to have a logo file and copy it to their partition and it should work. https://support.hp.com/za-en/document/c01646879 In my TS I created this additional partition - see attached. 1. Is this correct? 2. How do I create a sub folder and copy my logo file to this hidden partition? 3. Is my layout correct, refer to attached "UEFI Layout"?
