  1. clientlocation log: Unable to verify the sitecode 'XYZ', AD schema is not extended or SLP is not present. Cannot continue site assignment. No the AD schema has not been expanded. I have setup the server locator point. This was working fine, hard drive crashed and I had to start over. Gone through all the config steps and still must be missing something. Computers that the client was previously installed on work fine. New computers install the client quickly but do not show ConfigMrg Connection Type (says unknown) or the Site Mode which also says unknow. They do show up in the collection but say client = no. Thanks in advance.
  2. I discovered that my original script still put the icons on the all users desktop even though that folder is in a different location. Here is a sample. Dim WSHShell Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") Dim MyShortcut, MyDesktop, DesktopPath ' Read desktop path using WshSpecialFolders object DesktopPath = ("C:\documents and settings\All Users\Desktop") ' Create a shortcut object on the desktop Set MyShortcut = WSHShell.CreateShortcut(DesktopPath & "\Basic Mixing Update.lnk") ' Set shortcut object properties and save it MyShortcut.TargetPath = WSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("c:\pgms\PPG update.exe") MyShortcut.WorkingDirectory = WSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%windir%") MyShortcut.WindowStyle = 4 MyShortcut.IconLocation = WSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("c:\pgms\PPG update.exe, 0") MyShortcut.Save 'WScript.Echo "A shortcut to Basic Mixing Update now exists on your Desktop." ' ******************************************************************************** ' * ' * Welcome ' * Sub Welcome() Dim intDoIt intDoIt = MsgBox(L_Welcome_MsgBox_Message_Text, _ vbOKCancel + vbInformation, _ L_Welcome_MsgBox_Title_Text ) If intDoIt = vbCancel Then WScript.Quit End If End Sub Thanks for your help.
  3. Software for example is from YADA called Colornet it is for mixing Dupont automotive paint, we also have software from PPG and BASF. Pricing and mixes change. So with stores from coast to coast it varies which brand they carry. Plus one location may not have the color apps on all computers etc.
  4. Was I to detailed? Tried to keep it simple.
  5. Our SCCM server is still in the experimental stage. We are using WSUS server for Microsoft updates. All computers are in our Domain. Approx. 170 different locations. Each location may have different apps they need to run. The database for these programs is kept on a single local computer and then there is a client version installed on the other local computers. Because of this we don't have one image that will work for all. Most of the software programs update monthly. Manufacturer ships CD's monthly. In the past we (IT dept) install the program and then setup a script which allows the local user to run the update. We need anyone who logs into the computer to be able to run these updates.
  6. Where can I find out info on setting this up?
  7. I have an admin account to use, and I just need these shortcuts created in the Pubic folder. Not all of our locations are configured the same way. Such as computer #1 may be the database server for one app, but #2 maybe the server for another app. In another location the setup may be entirely different. Because of this we have had to do tweaking to some locations. As far as SCCM I wasn't aware that I could configure items in folders on a per computer basis. That sounds like it would be easier, but I have no idea how to do this.
  8. They are all in a domain. So are you saying that I need to setup my script to run as an admin, even if an admin is logged in? Asking because that is how I am trying to create the script. Remember I don't want to have to touch every computer remotely to copy these shortcuts over.
  9. Our users do not have rights to install software etc on company computers. Therefore I have written scripts that will allow them to update software already installed by logging in with an admin account and running the update. Because we have so many users logging into different computers this software and these shortcuts need to be available to all of them. In the past I could just put them in the "all users" desktop folder. However with Win7 they need to be in the c:\users\public\public desktop (hidden) folder. This can be done if I log in as an admin, but with 700 to 1000 computers I need to have an automated way to do this. I have tried changing rights etc to the public desktop folder but I can't change the read-only setting. I have lowered the UAC setting all the way. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Build 7100 sysprep 2.0, running on local hard drive.
  11. I have logged in as local admin and local account with admin rights. I have also tried with domain admin account. I have lowered the ACL all the way. I also read that there was a limit to the number of times you can sysprep an image, so I created a completely fresh install. Hard drive was blank before installing Windows 7. I believe it is a rights issue but I can't figure out where. As always any help is appreciated.
  12. I have checked the computer client agent settings, this error still doesn't go away.
