  1. Hi All, I've been trying without much success on try to implement a Multi Forest hierarchy i've attached a simple diagram of what I want to achieve. I want forest A to have a CAS and Primary (which is working fine at present) I'm thinking Forest B to have a primary in the adult AD but this is where my problem happens forest C the AD i want to manage is a child im not interested in servicing the Adult in forest C what would be the best set-up for forest C am i right in thinking i would be best to deploy a Primary in the Adult of the forest then a secondary in the Child AD that i want to manage within SCCM. sorry if this sounds like a simple setup but im struggling with this one :-) any help would be much appreciated. if you feel my setup is wrong please advise. thanks Matt
  2. Hi Laxi, did you manage to find any information out regarding the old computers, only this is something ive been trying to find an answer for ??? thanks Matt
  3. Hi, I’m running the Asset Int report Hardware 01A on my all systems collection which currently holds 2000+ records, the problem I have is the report is only displaying the results of 116 records and I’m not sure as to why, is this something I’m doing wrong ? My initial thought is AI has not yet fully collated all data from the clients but it has been turned on for the last 6 months and I would have thought this was ample amount of time. Any help or suggestions would be greatly received :-) Thanks Matt
  4. Hi Doug, I had a similar issue within our setup here when I was deploying MBAM, I found out that it could not take full ownership of the TPM due to key issues. I found this VBS script I edited it to our requirements and created a package then ran this before the bit locker step in the task sequence. The script basically enters a new/restores the endorsement key within the TPM chip, once this ran I was able to take ownership no problem and the task sequence completed successfully. Since then I have kept the VBS script in the task sequence but disabled the bit locker stage and now let MBAM do this in an automated fashion. Here is the script I have been using '========================================================================== ' ' NAME: tpm_ek.vbs ' ' AUTHOR: Microsoft ' AMENDED: Matt Wall ' DATE : 18/11/2011 ' ' COMMENT: Checks for TPM Endorsement Key Pair and creates it if missing.

  8. currently on CM v.Next CEP Meeting: Kick-off and v.Next Overview

  9. We are deploying via a command line run on login now, but I would prefer to deploy fully via SCCM so any info would be greatly received.
  10. Glad this helped you out and the extra info is great thanks. My headache is still with getting this script working over multiple vendors and but also by identifying the chassis first then give it the correct name based on mobile device or desktop. Would love to go with one naming convention but unfortunately in our case we can’t. Let me know if you do any other work on this topic great to hear about others using or developing this.
  11. I’ve sorted this out, the Viglen machines serial number is all numeric and windows 7 has to have an alpha numeric name, i knew it would be something annoying that was causing us issues. im now making the script check for which chassis is reported from WMI so that it can then assign certain prefixes based mobile devices and desktops. so no doubt ill be posting something again soon for some input / help, LOL
  12. hi all, i am running the following script to pull the machine name from the SMBIOS for the ZTI deployment of windows 7. the problem i have it works fine for any DELL PC we have but not on our Viglen Range. if you run the script on a built Viglen PC it comes back with the relevant information. so i know my script is running OK. i have added this to run as a package in my MDT Task Sequence within Config Manager at the beginning of the post install phase just before the Gather Process. has anyone else had any problems auto pulling the machine name on a viglen into SCCM. i have tried numerous things but it is being a pain in the arse. any help would be greatly received. cheers Matt here is the vbscript I'm running dim env strNewName = "" strManName = "" Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & "." & "\root\cimv2") Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_ComputerSystemProduct") For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS strManName = objSMBIOS.Vendor Next If strManName = "Dell Inc." then Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure") For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS strNewName = objSMBIOS.SerialNumber Next ElseIf strManName = "Viglen" then Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure") For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS strNewName = objSMBIOS.SMBIOSAssetTag Next ElseIf strManName = "TOSHIBA" then Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_BIOS") For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS strNewName = objSMBIOS.SerialNumber Next End if SET env = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment") env("OSDComputerName") = strNewName
  13. hi, this is the website http://uk.trendmicro.com/uk/home/ I'm not sure there is an available download to test with as it's our corporate solution and have a license with them. we run it from a file share for example \\*********\autopcc.exe this is a compiled exe that runs a batch file to install the application, we run the autopcc.exe then sit back and watch all done. nice and easy. I'm making a package up thats runs a command line, no VB script just plain and simple DOS command. i point the packaging wizard at the share and follow the few but simple steps. Ive attached a pic of the package.
  14. hi there, has anyone packaged and deployed via SCCM Trend Micro Office Scan, if so how did you do this, only I'm trying to package this up. i have tried running it as a command line, but when i update the DP it cant copy any info to it as there is none and it says the sequence media is missing. also when you check the status of the DP it's saying "install pending" for ever. cheers Matt
