  1. I have a MDT Task Sequence that deploys Windows 10. I am trying to set the windows built in local administrator password during the OSD Task Sequence. To make this a bit complex I have an exe that I pass the computer name to, which generates a password. I want to take this and set it as the local admin password. I have tried to set it through PowerShell using the OSD TS Variable: $LocalAdminPass = & .\Password.exe $env:COMPUTERNAME | Out-String $TSEnv = New-Object -COMObject Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment $TSEnv.Value("OSDLocalAdminPassword") = "$LocalAdminPass" This does not work. Any suggestions?
  2. Ok so every guide about setting up SCCM states you have to delegate control to the System Management container. My question is can you have multiple "system" containers? for example: I have domain "Corporate" under which I have 2 OUs (Europe and US) Since I only want to delegate control of SCCM to its specific OU can I create a System Container then System Management under the specific OU?
  3. I am trying to install a windows theme for all users. I created an MSI that puts the .jpg and .theme files in the respective folder. This installs during the OSD Task Sequence from SCCM. The problem is, it does not activate the theme when a user logs in. I edited the GPO "Load a specific Theme" to this install location and theme. I know the GPO only works when a new user logs in. I have tested this many times with my Engineering team and it still will not activate the theme until "manually" selected. I have tried the "RunOnce" registry key. This only brings up the theme window when a new user logs in. Any other suggestions? The goal is to have a specific theme for all users.
  4. I currently have SCCM 2016 on one server and I want to do a complete migration to another server and decommission the old one. What would be the best and most efficient way of doing this? Thanks in advance.
  5. Looking for a little guidance. I have come into a new role with a company that is running SCCM 2007 R2 on SQL 2008. I need to update this to SCCM 2016 v1702 on SQL 2012. Current day they have a separate WSUS server in which they deploy Windows Updates. I would like to incorporate this as well into the new server. This is the first time I am tasked with upgrading the server. In the past I have had "another team" that upgraded the server and I just Packaged/created OSDs. Any guidance on appropriate steps. Also wanted to note that the SQL Server is maintained on a separate "cluster" which means I also need what steps will need to be taken to point the new server to a new database that I need to create (request for) Any help will be appreciated.
  6. In my environment we do the same type of naming convention. We use a task sequence to call a powershell script to get the variable to name the computer. the powershell is pretty simple. You can test using the script below and modify it accordingly. The Write-Host is what you will need to change to return the variable to your task sequence. Also however long you want the string/where you want it to start on the return. You can add "Write-Host"s to see what it is bringing back for each variable and modify accordingly. This is one I used for a Lenovo but it should be the same idea. $MyModelNumber = GWMI Win32_ComputerSystem | fl Model | Out-String $MyModelNumber = $MyModelNumber.Substring(12,4) $MySerialNumber = GWMI Win32_Bios | fl SerialNumber | Out-String $MySerialNumber = $MySerialNumber.Substring(19) $MyComputerName = $MyModelNumber + '-' + $MySerialNumber Write-host $MyComputerName
