  1. Thanks for that. Is it 'technically' possible to create the SCCM 2012 environment, and just simply cut-over? So re-configure everything from scratch if they're wanting to, and then just push out the new SCCM client to all machines. I note there's an option to reinstall the client if it's already installed, so I would have thought this could be possible. The idea behind that would be to clean everything up and start fresh. I guess the only limitation would be whether SCCM will reinstall the agents on the client machines and whether it will all check in properly.
  2. Hi Everyone, I may need to be doing a migration from an older version of SCCM to SCCM 2012 and I can't really see anything online about how this would happen. Is there actually a migration path to follow, or is it basically a brand new SCCM installation?
  3. Has anyone seen an issue when running OSD with USMT (in place refresh) where the install apps sequence doesn't work? It's set to continue if it fails, and will sit on each app for 15 minutes until moving onto the next one. Once it's completed the OSD/USMT, it boots into Windows and everything is there but there's no apps. If I do this and then boot into windows, then run the same task sequence again, it will work fine (installing the apps). If I run the same Task Sequence without USMT (ie fresh install), the apps install fine. Seems to be if I use a non-imaged machine to run OSD with USMT, it won't install apps for some reason. The only thing I can see that's an error is the following line within the CIDownloader.log file. It happens once every 15 minutes, which is when the progress bar moves on to the next app that it's trying to install. CIDownloaderJob({6B73D2DC-46D2-4D82-A1E1-008F3BD05A87}): SetFailureCondition - Job will fail immediately on error I've had a look through the other log files and can't see any error messages anywhere. There's also no appXXX.log files eitiher. not sure if this is normal. I would have assume that the logs should be in smsts.log file because it's all happening with the OSD Task Sequence? CIDownloader.log smsts.log smsts-20161007-071148.log
  4. Yeah well I thought the same thing. But what I don't understand is that it's the same image, same driver packages etc as my OSD fresh install which works perfectly on that machine. So the difference is that this uses USMT too, and starts from within the Windows OS, rather than PXE booting. See attached SMSTS.log from the failed OS refresh. I should also add that I can run this exact Task Sequence on a different machine, and it works fine. Initially that would make me think drivers, but not too sure considering it works if I PXE boot. Just doesn't work when I run it from within Windows. Works on Dell Optiplex 9020 AIO, doesn't work on Dell optiplex 9020 M. Attached logs are from the 9020M that's failing. smsts.log
  5. Hey guys it looks like this is just a typical SCCM fail. All working fine after I left the machine on over the weekend. Sorted itself out.
  6. Hi Guys, I am currently trying to run an in-place refresh on a particular machine, and it's failing on the "Applying Operating System" section of the Task Sequence. I've posted another thread, but that's completely different issue with a different computer, so don't get confused if you see my two posts. In this case, I have a computer that will PXE boot perfectly and install an OS that I have deployed through a Task Sequence. That all works well. The issue I have is when I want to run the in-place refresh Task Sequence which essentially loads the same TS as the completely SOE install, but the difference is that this one uses USMT as well. The settings (with the exception of the USMT sections of the Task Sequence) are exactly the same as the TS that works fine, but for some reason, when it gets to Applying OS, it fails with 80070002. I've had a look at the logs by pressing F8 during the deployment and I've checked out the smsts.log file, and it's showing the WinSendHTTP error message. It looks like the error message translates to something like it's not able to reesolve the server name. I've run an IPCONFIG on the machine, and I'm getting a 169 address, so that would most likely explain that part. The issue is that I don't understand why it would be getting a 169 address. The drivers are the same, the boot image is the same, the WIM that it's installing is the same. Literally the only diffference is that it captures the user state etc, and that this one starts from the Software Center, rather than a PXE boot. Everything else is exactly the same, but for some reason this fails on this particular machine. Any ideas?
  7. Hi Guys, I've setup an in-place refresh to SOE a machine whilst copying local data through USMT. That part is working welll on a test machine and once it's done, I can log in and all the data has been copied, but the issue I am having is that if I check the CfgMgr client, it only shows the 6 tabs and there's only 2 actions instead of the usual number. I'm completely stumped as to what the issue could be here. I have two SOE images. The first one is a complete install, the 2nd one uses USMT and is more of an in-place refresh. 1st one works perfectly. Second one is where the issues are. If anyone is able to point me in the right direction as to where I should be looking to get this working, that would be great. CcmExec.log smsts-20161007-145100.log
  8. Hi Everyone, I currently have IIS using a Server Farm and ARR to forward traffic from gis.domain.com to my specific server. This part is working fine. What I'd like to have setup, is to have gis.domain.com/webapp to forward to the same server, but on a different port. So if default port was 80 and gis.domain.com goes there, then gis.domain.com/webapp would go to <servername>:8080. I managed to get this working with URL Rewrite on the default website in a test lab, but I wasn't using the server farm, and wasn't using multiple servers (IE Server Farm IIS forwarding to the Node where the website is stored). I can't quite get this one to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Hi Everyone, I've just run the Intel AMT: Configuration task sequence and that's worked successfully but it's showing up as 'detected' instead of 'externally provisioned'. I've had a look at the AMTOPMGR.log and I'm getting the following logs (attached). If anyone could please let me know what the best way to get this up and running, that would be great.
  10. Hi Guys, I'm trying to get Public Folders working for Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 on a machine that's on a WORKGROUP. Public Folders is supported by Microsoft for machines that are on a WORKGROUP, but I can't work out why it's not working. If I join the machine to the domain, it works fine.
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm trying to run the Intel SCS: Platform Discovery Task Sequence through SCCM. I noticed that a lot of test machines are not showing up in the Intel AMT: Exists device collection after the TS has run which would indicate an issue. I've checked the smsts.log and this is what I have: Any advice for this one? I can see that it references that it can't find the specified file. Everything has been located in the default locations and the user account it's running as is a domain admin.
  12. Hi Guys, I've created an application within SCCM to essentially run "setup.exe /s". I can run this manually and it works perfectly, so I know the "/s" flag works fine. When running it through Software Centre, I get the following errors (pic 1 taken from appenforce.log, pic 2 taken from software centre). Any ideas? I'm not sure what "Invalid Executable File Setup.exe" means. As I had mentioned, I can run that exe without any problems if I'm running it manually. Just fails through SCCM.
  13. Hi Guys, I worked out what this issue was. It was to do with the Build and Capture task sequence not being setup correctly, so that caused issues when using that captured image for OSD. As there's nothing really online to correctly show how to setup B&C and get OSD with USMT working, I blogged it. http://blog.arkwright.com.au/2016/08/operating-system-deployment-osd-with.html
  14. Hi All, I'm running an in-place refresh for workstations through an OSD Task Sequence on SCCM 2012 R2. I've run the task sequence and I can see that USMT is coping the data to the SCCM server, but when the TS finishes, the data isn't copied back to the workstation. Any ideas? SMSTS.log attached. smsts.log
  15. Hi Guys, I'm wanting to create a query based device collection which shows all computers that have not checked in for the last 30 days. I can see a query that would show machines that haven't had a software scan in the last 30 days... 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_SUP_SCAN_TOOL on SMS_G_System_SUP_SCAN_TOOL.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SUP_SCAN_TOOL.LastCompletionTime <= DATEADD(dd,-30,GetDate()) But I was wondering if there's a query which will target the "Days since last communication" field?
