  1. Hello, comrades! I've created the report "Products from .exe files"- and it's working in a strange way. I.e. I'm looking for SW product '222'. OK, I find it on computers "aaa", "bbb", 'ccc'. Particulary, i find this file at '\\bbb\d$\install\222'. But on computer 'bbb' drive D have been changed a month ago and there the directory 'd:\Install' not exists at all. Is there a chance that "Software Inventory" are put to some kind of cache? Any ways do drop the cache? Thank you in advance! ---------------------------------------------- Script looks like this:
  2. Hello, Garth, thank you for your answer! First of all I want to thank you for many of your articles! They were very useful for me when I was only entering SCCM space! Yes, I know your opinion that SI is mostly useless in SCCM. But I've very carefully examined the whole chain of logs. On the client side it took near 8K seconds to generate the log and file has been transferred to Server (1 server, 1 MP). On server side file has been received, processed and sent to DB with no errors. And as I said before, this bug is detected only on several devices. And the bug disapp
  3. Hello! Win 10 on devices, SCCM version is 1810, SCCM clients on devices are actual version. I've used the SCCM SI to find devices with the certain .EXE files in order to delete these files. Something like "c:\Somestuff\111.exe", "c:\Install\Somestuff\111.exe" OK, ~40 devices were found, files (and folders containing them) were deleted and I run the report again. Surprisingly, ~10 devices still showed that these folders and files are exist (let's call them "bad"). For quick check I've wrote the SQL query (it's working fine for "bad" and "good" devices)
  4. Hello everyone! I have a few ready-to-deploy OS Task Sequences. They were tested and successfully deployed via SCCM (v.1606) already. And now I have the task to prepare these "OSD-TS"s for installation from USB drive. So the question is: do I have to create new TS, pointing the output to stand-alone media (the very beginning of "New TS Media" Wizard) or there is more quick way like just copy existing TS and "redirect" it's output to stand-alone media? Maybe some kind of PS script can help me? Thank you in advance.
  5. I've found this old post when I run in the same trouble. "Damn, why they don't work? What I did in wrong way?!" Found the answer here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh219289.aspx : " If the configuration baseline is deployed to a computer, it is evaluated for compliance within two hours of the start time that you schedule. If it is deployed to a user, it is evaluated for compliance when the user logs on." Maybe this will help to somebody.
  6. Hello everyone! Some years ago I was looking for a script to create collections in SCCM based on AD OUs. I've found some of them, but they seemed a bit complex and incomprehensible to me. So I've wrote my own rather simple script, added a few options that I think would be in hand for SCCM admin and added a lot of comments to make the script easy to understand and modify. So I present it to your judge. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. <# Crafted by Maestro, 17/03/2017 The purposes of this script: 1. Create device collections in SCCM based on AD. Assign Canoni
  7. Hello everyone. Got the same error after migrating to 1606 from 2012 SP2. Digging the logs, found that SCCM is getting problems with WDS. WDS needs to be restarted before activating, SCCM isn't ready for this and tries to do everything, not paying attention that service is missing. What did I do. 1. Unchecked PXE in SCCM console. 2. Uninstalled WDS. Rebooted. 3. Deleted (just in case) %windir%\Temp and RemoteInstall folders. 4. Manually installed WDS. Rebooted. 5. Checked PXE option, waited for procedure to complete (no errors in logs). 6. Redistributed boot images. 7. Redistributed O
  8. Thank you. I was wondering if in some case policy refresh time interval is overridden (except manual refresh).
  9. Hello everyone! I cannot find an answer to technical question. When I add or move device to some collection, does it makes the SCCM client to run Policy Retrieval and Evaluation Cycle? Or the time interval is strictly configured in Client settings? In other words, if I want to immediately apply collection's deployments to a new computer do I have to run for it "Download computer Policy" from SCCM console?
  10. Thank you. I've made MW 30 minutes and time of package execution for 15 minutes (it's simple "shutdown.exe" with few options). And it seems to work great. Thank to everyone for answers.
  11. Thank you very much! The key phrase is "the maintenance window will applied to any application or package that you deploy". Because in some manuals it was written that the maintenance windows support only "software updates, OS install, something else..." but not a word about package deployments. So I've wondered - could the shutdown will be done with package or should I create a Task Sequence for it. Thanks again!
  12. Hello everyone! I've wrote very simple script to shutdown Workstations. Then I've created the collection for certain OUs in domain and simply scheduled to deploy this script to collection as package at 22:00 . I've realized my mistake when some of these workstations rebooted at morning (they were powered down already). So, what is the best way to do it right with SCCM? Should I schedule, i.e. the distribution of this package daily at 21:50 with deadline at 21:55 and create maintenance window for collection from 22:00 to 22:05? Will this work or there is more easier way? I've foun
  13. It's OK, all computers are x86 Windows. But is there any way to complete my task in query, or I have to create a new report?
  14. Hello everyone! I've got a task to create a query to show the computers which has more then one installation of Java on it (sometimes Java doesn't updates correctly). So I quickly created a query: select distinct SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName, SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.Version from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS on SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName like "Java % Update %" order by SMS_R_System.Name And this query shows me all the
