  1. Hi, I've ran into a bit of an issue which I hope someone can assist (or point me in the right direction) My building had SCCM installed and was the only site in the company. We recently acquired another company and they had the newest SCCM environment so the decision was made to have them as the main site and set us up as a DP. The DP was setup here and everything was setup and was looking great, I ran the below script (with the correct site name) and it worked fine, the machines picked up the new site code and were showing in "new" Configuration Manager Console. On Error Resume Next set oSMSClient = CreateObject ("Microsoft.SMS.Client") if Err.Number <>0 then wscript.echo "Could not create SMS Client Object - quitting" end if 'Assign client to Servername oSMSClient.SetAssignedSite "SITECODE",0 set oSMSClient=nothing The last couple of days, when i add machines, they are no longer being picked up by the new Configuration Manager Console. They pick up the site code and the assigned management point but are not being seen in the new Configuration Manager Console. Below is the log from exermgr.log Raising event: [SMS_CodePage(850), SMS_LocaleID(2057)] instance of SoftDistProgramCompletedSuccessfullyEvent { AdvertisementId = "XXX200AC"; ClientID = "GUID:XXX"; DateTime = "20170504115048.531000+000"; MachineName = "XXX"; PackageName = "XXX002DC"; ProcessID = 4864; ProgramName = "SiteCode_Change"; SiteCode = "XXX"; ThreadID = 1712; UserContext = "NT AUTHORITY\\SYSTEM"; }; execmgr 04/05/2017 12:50:48 1712 (0x06B0) Raised Program Success Event for Ad:XXX200AC, Package:XXX002DC, Program: SiteCode_Change execmgr 04/05/2017 12:50:48 1712 (0x06B0) Execution is complete for program SiteCode_Change. The exit code is 0, the execution status is Success execmgr 04/05/2017 12:50:48 1712 (0x06B0) I have checked boundrys and the network team have said they haven't changed anything so I'm a bit perplexed. Any help appreciated. Paul
  2. Hi Samson, I had to do the same thing as you, but had Office 2010 x64, Lync 2013 x64 and I needed to go to Office 2016 x86. I'm sure there are easier ways to do this, but this is how I achieved what I needed (in caveman terms): I created 4 applications: 1. Office 2016 ProPlus x86 (With OD and Pub) 2. Uninstall Office 2013 x64 3. Uninstall Office 2010 x64 4. Kill Office Processes and made each dependant on the proceededing number (1 dependant on 2, 2 dependant on 3 etc.) which means when I deployed the first one it will actually install backwards and uninstall everything and then install Office last. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4. Kill Office ProcessesFunction: Kills all open instances of Office appsInstallation Program: "KillOfficeProceses.bat"Detection Method: Type: FolderPath: C:\TempFolder Name: OfficeKilled ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.

  3. Hi Skoban, Is this being installed on a machine that doesn't have any version of Office already, or is it upgrading an already installed version? I persnoally install it as an application, with a couple of tasks running afterwards for "tidying up" I ran into an issue in where the content location was wrong and SCCM wasn't able to find the installer and it exited with that error. Double check your content location to see if SCCM is able to find the install files, and if its correct, delete the application and start again - sometimes there is something somewhere that is wrong and re-creating the application from scratch sorts that.
  4. Hi guys, Thanks for the responses (apoloiges I didnt get back to you before, its been a tad hectic) In the end we took a more manual approach to it (management choice...) and had someone go around and uninstall the old one and install the new one. To answer your question Jorgen, the VPN software we use isn't fantastic and when uninstalled, it deletes the NIC. The company have a script they advise running afterwards called "RestoreNIC" which tells me they arent confident in their software. Thread can be locked, thanks again for the reponses.
  5. Hi all, Hoping someone can assist with my question. I have a VPN client that needs upgrading from an out of date (by 2 years) version to the new shiny one. Because of how out of date it is, I can't use the newest version as a direct upgrade as its not supported on the version I'm upgrading from so I need to do the following: Uninstall VPN Reboot Install new version Reboot I tried this in a task sequence but it didnt work, it uninstalled but didnt reinstall the new one. Has anyone got a different way of doing this? I should also add that uninstalling the VPN client disables the NIC (which is helpful) so i have copied the client locally and am using it that way. Any help appriciated. Thanks,
  6. Hi, Have you made an MSP file using the admin tool and put it in the updates folder? If you haven't then as Peter said the install doesn't know what to look for when installing and it sat there twiddling its thumbs.
