  1. I found a query that works (I added to the queries section in the Monitoring tab). I can get the information I need from there, but I cannot figure out how to take that query and use Report Builder (so I can have a pretty looking report via SSRS) select distinct SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS.SerialNumber, SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS.SMBIOSBIOSVersion, SMS_R_System.IPAddresses, SMS_R_System.MACAddresses from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS on SMS_G_System_PC_BIOS.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId
  2. Hi all, I need to create a report that will pull some simple information (ComputerName, SerialNumber, BiosVersion and BiosName) from a collection of computers. Manually, I can go to Resource Explorer and expand hardware, and PC BIOS, and get the information, but was wondering if I could extrapolate this easier? Thanks
  3. I have transitioned everything in my site to an HTTPS environment, however, this is the only portion that won't work via HTTPS. I'm not exactly sure what is the reason that having it enabled prevents the updates from appearing.
  4. I have downloaded the most recent software updates for Windows 10 20H2 x64, as can be seen in this image: I went ahead and redistributed the deployment package, to make sure the latest updates added were available. Then, I clicked over to my operating system image. right clicked, and chose Schedule Updates. Those two updates will not show as available as can be seen in this image (additionally, the Windows Malicious Software Remove Tool or update doesn't show as available either): So, to make sure that they aren't already applied, I clicked the update tab on my OS image. Any ideas? Once the image is applied, if I go to check Windows updates, the missing ones download and install. Thanks, Jesse
  5. EDIT: It is amazing how much of an issue can be caused by having this box checked: Once removing the SSL requirement, updates started flowing Good morning/afternoon, I am having issues getting software updates and feature upgrades to appear in Software Center. I have created a Windows 10 Servicing Plan which is deployed to a collection of computers and the "user experience" is set to show everything in Software Center. I have ensured the downloaded Feature Updates (business, 20H2 en-US) are part of the Servicing Plan. I have ensured the client can talk and reach to the WSUS point (via LocationServices.log) Feature Updates aren't showing, nor are software updates. Any help is appreciated.
  6. Checked, everything looks great. I went ahead and removed ADK 2004, and reinstalled ADK 1903, everything is working fine again. I'm going to try removal / re-installation of ADK 2004 again, and see what my results are. Will let you know
  7. Yes. That is what was strange. With the boot image I have been using, I specified a custom background. The boot package ID matched, however the custom background doesn't load. that's what led me to create a new boot image as I thought something was corrupt as it wouldn't load the background.
  8. Yep. Removed the 1903 ADK, removed the PE component, rebooted. Downloaded the 2004 ADK, and the corresponding PE component from the MS docs page. installed adk, then PE, rebooted. rebuilt boot images. I even went as far as creating a new boot image, and using that and enabling it for PXE distribution, thinking that my boot image might be to blame. Ensured also that i have the correct network drivers in the boot image. still results in the same issue.
  9. unfortunately, no. Once the background shows, no keystrokes work. F8 should bring up command prompt, but it does nothing. The only thing I can see before pressing F8 is the background image (MS Endpoint Configuration Manager default background), then a flash (like a window appears), then the computer restarts.
  10. Here is an excerpt from SMSPXE on the last boot I did.

  11. Hey all, Since upgrading to CM 2002, I have done the following: Upgrade ADK to 2004, rebuild boot images. Now, when I PXE boot, it loads the WIM, loads up the WinPE environment background - then poof, it restarts (I never get prompted with the password entry to start my OSD). I cannot press F8 to have the command prompt appear (I still have that enabled), therefore I cannot get to any log files to diagnose. I am attempting to deploy Windows 10 1903. Any suggestions?
  12. Good afternoon, Is there a built-in Alert or Report (or one that can be made simply enough) to send an email (or notify in the console) that the Distribution Point certificate is expiring within 30 days? Is this possible? Thanks! Jesse
  13. FYI - If you're having UEFI and PXE boot issues since upgrading to CM 2002, a patch was released today. Here's the details. https://support.microsoft.com/help/4567007 V/r Jesse
