  1. Seems to be fixed now. It was a problem with the virus definition that somehow caused update sync to break.
  2. I noticed this morning (after patch tuesday) that some patches were missing on our SUP. Furthermore, SMS_WSUS_SYNC_MANAGER had this weird error: WSUS Synchronization failed. Message: ImportUpdateError: . Source: Microsoft.SystemsManagementServer.SoftwareUpdatesManagement.WsusSyncAction.WSyncAction.SyncWSUS. And wyncmgr.log had this: Sync failed: ImportUpdateError: . Source: Microsoft.SystemsManagementServer.SoftwareUpdatesManagement.WsusSyncAction.WSyncAction.SyncWSUS STATMSG: ID=6703 SEV=E LEV=M SOURCE="SMS Server" COMP="SMS_WSUS_SYNC_MANAGER" SYS=[FQDN-NAME-OF-SERVER] SITE=XXX PID=3036 TID=7664 GMTDATE=ons jun 13 17:41:41.389 2018 ISTR0="Microsoft.SystemsManagementServer.SoftwareUpdatesManagement.WsusSyncAction.WSyncAction.SyncWSUS" ISTR1="ImportUpdateError: " ISTR2="" ISTR3="" ISTR4="" ISTR5="" ISTR6="" ISTR7="" ISTR8="" ISTR9="" NUMATTRS=0 After some troubleshooting I found that deselecting either the category 'Definition updates' or the product 'Windows Defender' made the error go away. Googling and troubleshooting all day, I finally found this on Technet: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/0f58a38a-042f-4475-b336-b7de3570ab7e/adding-defender-updates-is-causing-sync-to-fail?forum=ConfigMgrCompliance Looks like there might be a bug somewhere...
  3. Of course! The script is based on anyweb's guide. This is what it looks like: <# # niall brady 2016/5/25 # simple script to allow for quick messages in a task sequence #> #Hide the progress dialog $TSProgressUI = new-object -comobject Microsoft.SMS.TSProgressUI $TSProgressUI.CloseProgressDialog() #connect to Task Sequence environment $tsenv = New-Object -COMObject Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment # read variables set in the task sequence #$title = $tsenv.Value("title") #$message = $tsenv.Value("message") #$returncode = $tsenv.Value("returncode") # Hard-coded variables $title = "No IP address" $message = "Network adapter was not activated after reboot. Remove the adapter en reinsert it, and press Enter [OK]." $returncode = "0" # now show a popup message to the end user write-host $title $message [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“System.Windows.Forms”) [Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show(“$message”, “$title”, [Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons]::OK, [Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon]::Warning) Start-Sleep -s 10 Exit $returncode And this is what that part of our TS looks like: The group Retry Domain Join when network adapters undetected has this condition: This is because we also want to check if domain join failed and then retry it. (Insert your domain name where the red is.) The Manually remove and reinsert NIC step is a Run Command Line: ServiceUI.exe -process:TSProgressUI.exe %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -WindowStyle Hidden -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy bypass -nologo -file nicproblem.ps1 The script nicproblem.ps1 in a Package. This step has this condition: Then we run the Join Domain or Workgroup step with this condition: You might want to try without the Join Domain step, but we found it was needed in some cases. Not sure when or why, though, as the whole x360 1030G2 problem seems very inconsistent. We also have the HP Pro x2 612 G2 model, which is similar in that it doesn't have an onboard nic and we use the same hp usb-c nic adapter and we have had no problem at all with that model. Go figure. I hope this was helpful, please let me know if anything is unclear.
  4. We tested that dock just to see if there was any difference in behavior between it and the usb-c adapter. We had five of them when testing and they all worked fine for us, actually. For different reasons, we still needed to get those usb-c adapters working, so we finally came up with a crude workaround, involving a powershell script (from anyweb, actually - kudos!). Right after reboot after installing windows image + drivers + sccm client the script is checking for an ip address, and if not found, a message is displayed saying the adapter needs to be removed and reinserted. Not at all perfect, especially since this is half way through installing, but it works. I'm hoping it works better with 1803.
  5. Did you find any solution to this? We have a similar problem, although we're using the USB-C Network Adapter instead of a dock. It seems that the adapter is not always recognised after windows image + drivers + sccm client is applied and the computer reboots. When the TS is reinitialising, ipconfig shows no usb-c adapter, but if I remove it and reconnects it, it starts working again. Regards, Pär
  6. Hi, With CB 1710 we should be able to run a task sequnce from within a task sequence. I was looking for that today, and it's supposed to be under Add > General, but it's missing. It's not a big deal atm, but I am curious, do I have to do something to get that option? Thanks, Pär
  7. You should probably get in touch with anyweb/Niall and see if he can help you, as he helped us.
  8. Sorry for the late reply. Shortly after we did our upgrade, Microsoft made some changes to their upgrade files, and I am pretty sure the problem is not there anymore. And with 1706 out any day now, you might as well go there.
  9. Oh, I know, I'm in the same situation here. Maybe I'll get to it sometime this autumn...
  10. I'm in a similar situation, did you find any good info on this? Maybe you have even done the upgrade, if so, how did it go? I have found these links so far, while not exactly reflects our situation, I think they might be useful: https://sccmentor.com/2016/09/21/in-place-upgrade-sccm-cb-1602-site-server-from-windows-2008-r2-to-2012-r2/ https://sccmentor.com/2016/10/03/upgrading-your-sccm-site-database/
  11. Well, my problem was probably very specific for our site. In short, the previous update to 1702 did not go as planned, and some parts still reported as being 1610. A customized sql script provided by anyweb seems to have resolved the issue, at least the hotfix is now ready to install, so I will try that soon.
  12. I've got anyweb (site admin/owner?) looking into this right now. Will let you know what he finds.
  13. The redist folder doesn't even exist here, only folders with what looks like country codes, like D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\CMUStaging\DBEF803D-D936-46B3-88FE-A5BDD7A03168\0000041d Also no redist folder under ...\EasySetupPayload\dbef803d-d936-46b3-88fe-a5bdd7a03168\ (the GUID is for KB4019926)
