  1. Is the SQL service running using the built-in system accounts or an AD service account? Under "administration --> overview --> security --> Administrative Users" does the service account have the appropriate permissions there? For example, I have a service account called "domain\svc_sccm" that has "Full Administrator" permissions. If you are logged into the admin console of the server, does it connect during that interactive session? In short, these couple tests will help rule out general Windows server connectivity behavior. If the SQL still fails after validating the above, it m
  2. Yes, sccm can find this location, but like most of the links, it typically only uses a UNC. Such as "<SERVER.FQDN>\SMS_<SITECODE>\" which maps to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager" I looked at the notes you posted. Seems odd that the x86 folder appears nested inside the x64 folder, but that may be just name tags and not contain the actual wim files. When I get some time, I'll pxe boot a vm and grab my pxe file to compare.
  3. I typically have them check every day for clients (servers have their own policies). This is what I have setup. I add the "custom severity - none" option so that if there is a patch released that needs to be blocked, I can change that field on each individual patch to block it. Much easier and cleaner. Here aremy properties.
  4. Yes. List all the versions of said software (such as the Publisher 'Nitro') and the associated computers with version(s). I hope I'm not missing something that is right in front of my eyes
  5. There are many reports on software, but what I have not found is a report or method to gather a list of all computers, with a piece of vendor software, regardless of software version. For example, under asset intelligence, I can see I have multiple versions of "Nitro" (see image). What I would like to have is a list that has all the "software count" expanded to show the computer objects they are installed on. I can run other reports and do this per line and can compile the reports into a master. That is time consuming. Does anyone know if there is something oob or a custom report
  6. Typically, I go to monitoring and content status. I look for targeted and compliance. For example...I have 9 targets. If I have a package that says (9), but does not have 100% compliance, then I push it again. As for an automated script...I'm not aware of that, but it could be handy.
  7. One option may be to create an uninstall package/application for 7zip. Then "require" it for a custom collection that you added specific users/computers to. That way it will auto run in the background and remove the app.
  8. Looks like from what I can see, when you publish third-party content, the system then downloads it. In that process, if the server you are downloading from (in my case HP) throttles or pauses, after 30 seconds the connection is reset and the downloads fail. Seems to be on the larger downloads mostly. I know it is HP's servers, but I have not found a way to change the 30 second timeout for SUP downloads. Any ideas out there?
  9. I am running 1806 and have configured the "third-party software update catalogs". I can see the lists and download smaller packages. I am using the default HP list since I have HP computers. I am trying to download larger sp's; however, like usual, HP's host site keeps pausing and that causes the publish option (or downloading) to fail in the logs. Example from log: [69, PID:9488][09/06/2018 09:33:22] :SyncUpdate: 'Intel Video Driver and Control Panel [15.65.5018.WS1] (Update:'00004850-0000-0000-5350-000000087555' Vendor:'HP Business Clients' Product:'Driver')' is synchronized to W
  10. I manually populate that field via a script I run against my HR report monthly. The field for "managed by" requires input (whether it be via powershell, or other) to be in a specific format. I believe that the CN or username must be used. It is an odd field that does not populate with static data. For example, you will get script errors if you try to add a name to that field and the account your are trying to insert does not exist in AD. The "managed by" field must contain users who exist if you want to script.
  11. SCCM version 1802; Console 5.1802.1082.1807; Site 5.0.8634.1000 yes, I completely rebuilt my MDT OSD TS using the wizard. I did recreate the tools and settings package for the new TS.
  12. What I ended up doing was upgrading my MDT to the 6.3.8450.1000 build (as you noted). Then, I tried my non-MDT TS...it still failed. I have no clue why. So I then recreated my entire OSD MDT TS. A few small TS tweaks and it now works with the older and the current Gen5's. For my 1803 deployment, I have the "apply operating system" ts set to "use an unattended sysprep answer file" and my unattended.xml is this: ********************************************** <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <se
  13. Resolved - Not sure what was/is wrong with my original OSD, but after updating my MDT tools to the latest, I recreated the MDT OSD TS and now it works. Actually, the same process is now averaging about 37% faster OSD times. My guess is the MDT was out of date and something with the latest chipsets.
  14. +1 I also use MDT; however, I use a TS after the section in MDT called "State Restore". It is just before I start installing applications. My ps1 is the same as above (minus the Import command). I have the cab file "microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab" and ps1 in the same source folder. The TS is straight forward. 1. Run PowerShell script 2. Browse for the package that is created 3. Script name <insert ps1 file name> 4. PowerShell execution policy = Bypass The package in step #2 is an empty package that just points to the source folder with the p
  15. What version of SCCM are you using? Which WADK do you have installed? Does it boot no problem into a VM using pxe? How about a system that has Win10 installed? Is it only failing on systems that are older and have Win7? If yes, then there may be a driver problem in the boot image (winpe) for that system/build.
