  1. Hi I am trying to hide the "Network security key" in my wireless network properties security page via GPO by following the instructions available at http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/68280-any-way-mask-hide-wifi-keys.html) but having no luck. Anyone got any other idea to mask the wireless keys? thanks .
  2. rebooting the server fixed my problem
  3. Hi I have SCCM 2007 SP2 R2 + MDT 2010 (Integrated). I currently have five TSs for OS deployment (TSs created by using the "Create Microsoft Deployment Task Sequence" wizard). All five TSs are working fine and out of five, two TSs that I created I acutally duplicated the existing one and just pointed them to a different OS Image. I just duplicated another TS and pointed it to another OS image. Advertised this TS (just like anyother TS) but when I PXE boot a PC I only see five TSs. First I thought that it is just a matter of giving it some time to replicate, so I tried again after a day or so but I still do not see the sixth TS. So is there a limit on the number of OSD related TSs that I am not aware of? thanks
  4. Hi I have Windows 7 Enterprise (32bit) PC at work with two 19" monitors (screen resolution 1280 x 1024 on each). The display is extended. My home PC is a Win 7 Ultimate (32bit) on a Laptop, screen resolution 1280 x 800. On my work PC I keep some apps open (for example, IE, Outlook etc) on primary monitor and some (like Word, Excel, Adobe etc)on the secondary monitor. The problem is after I RDP from home to my Work PC and then when I get to work all my apps are re-positioned to my Primary monitor. I have tried several things like change the screen resolution on both work and home PCs, changed the primary/secondary monitors etc but Windows 7 just does not seem to remember the last application windows position after the RDP connection is made and disconnected. I also tried the Desktop Layout Restor utility but it only restores the Desktop icons and not the applications window position. Any help in this regards is greatly appreciated.
  5. Look for the computer name in "All Systems" collection and delete it, then try again (you might have to "Clear Last PXE Adv....on All Unknow collection). At one point I had to delete the computer by using the MAC address as deleting the computer by name did not work.
  6. Hi I've been trying to find the root cause of slowness of some computers (Win XP) that happened last week within my environment. I've been going through the event viewer and firewall logs of those particular computers (for a particular date and particular time range). I have not found anything on those computers yet but I was wondering if there is any other log files (any registry settings etc) that I should look for that could provide me any useful information about the slowness. thanks in advance
  7. just curious if you added a distribution point to your sysprep package
  8. well, I resolved two of my issues (Problem 2 & 3). The fix for problem 2 was to disable the "Apply Windows Settings" under "PostInstall" of the TS and uncheck the "Use an unattended or sysprep answer file....." option under the "Install/Refresh Only/Apply Operating System Image" The fix for problem 3 was http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1133-setting-computername-during-deployment/ So the only unresolved mystery is problem 1. I tried almost everything mentioned in http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/configmgrosd/thread/bf4b9f5b-0d65-4668-8eb6-167aa6262e9d but nothing worked...
  9. SCCM 2007 SP2 R2 + MDT 2010 Integrated OS being deployed is Windows XP SP3 (wim file). This image is created manually and sysprep is run before manually capturing the wim file. Task Sequence (Created using "create Microsoft Deployment Task Sequence" wizard) ***************************************************************************** Problem 1: After the PXE boot I see this window Title: Task Sequence Wizard Message: The media is not password protected. Please click next to continue. I have added SkipBDDWelcome=YES in both Bootstrap.ini and CustomSettings.ini but it did not help, I still see this window ***************************************************************************** ***************************************************************************** Problem 2: Title: Error Message: Setup was unable to change the password for user account Administrator. Please enter the desired password again. I have SkipAdminPassword=YES in CustomSettings.ini file and in Sysprep.inf file I have the following: [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword="p@ssword" OEMSkipWelcome=1 OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=020 AutoLogon="Yes" AutoLogonCount=999 but I am getting the above mentioned error ***************************************************************************** ***************************************************************************** Problem 3: After I click "OK" on the error described in "Problem 2" I see the "Computer Name and Administrator Password" window where I should be able to rename the computer account but it only stays up for some seconds and I am unable to rename the default computer name "MINI-random" to my desired name. In CustomSettings.ini I have SkipComputerName=NO and in Sysprep.inf file I have: [userData] ;ComputerName= ***************************************************************************** I also tried the SCCM built-in "Client Task Sequence" but same results thanks
  10. I am so sorry. I will post my question in the XP forum
  11. I just want to mention one more thing is that when I created my MDT Deploy task sequence, it asked for the settings package and I pointed it to the one that I had created before. This package only had two files "CustomSettings.ini" and "Unattend.xml" file. It did not have "Sysprep.inf" file, so I copied the sysprep.inf to this settings package folder and in my MDT Task sequence (under the Install\Apply Operating System Image" node) I manually typed-in the file name "sysprep.inf" as it was blank. SO I am not sure if this what is causing all these issues. thanks
  12. I tried the SCCM built-in task sequence too but same results.....thanks
