  1. Anyone else? This is a "make or break" situation for me
  2. Hrrm, this is not a problem with ONE particular machine, but all of them!
  3. I am currenty replacing SCCM 2007 with SCCM 2012. Because of that, I have two fully working environments. Performing a new OSD with a machine directly from the factory is easy in SCCM2012: I simply import the compuer, with it's desired hostname, and the MAC adress of the machine, and point towards a specific device collection, allowing the task sequence to run. (I do not use unknown computer support in the 2012 enviroment, but we did in the previous 2007 environment). Performing OSD that way, works like a charm! I can even deploy the SCCM 2012 agent to a SCCM 2007 machine, making it communicating fully, then making the system a member of the very same osd-collection, in that way triggering the OSD via PXE or from Windows in the Software Center. I'm using Option 66 and 67 in my DHCP, on specific scopes. Recently, I've been trying to educate my collegues, in how to use the SCCM 2012 console. A collegue of mine simply asked: "what's the easiest way to reinstall a computer, that is currently in the SCCM 2007 system?" Well, as I have the "Active Directory System Discovery" discovery method enabled, I can actually see the objects from our AD under devices in SCCM 2012. Deploying the SCCM 2012 agent to one of those object would work, and then making it a member of the collection. But that's a bit unnecessary, right? So, I just tried to rightclick on the object, which currently says Client=No (as the machine is a member of the sccm 2007, or none at all), choose "add selected items" -> "add selected items to existing device collection", choosing my osd-collection. Seems legit? Trying to PXE a machine gives me the following: "CLIENT MAC ADDR: BLABLABLA GUID: BLABLABLA CLIENT IP: 172.X.X.X MASK: DHCP IP: 172.X.X.X GATEWAY IP: 172.X.X.X Downloaded WDSNBP... Architecture: x64 WDSNBP started using DHCP Referral. Contacting Server: MY SCCM WITH WDS (gateway: 172.x.x.x)... No responsde from Windows Deployment Services server. Launching pxeboot.com... Press F12 for network service boot." When pressing F12 I get this: "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next". 3. Click "Repair your computer". If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data." Any thoughts on this? Seem like doing a re-OSD the easy way, is an impossible way. Thanks Johan
  4. Previously, we've used MDT to look up the location based on default gateway and set regional settings/hostname that way. We are now looking to get rid of MDT entirely, and just focus on plain clean task sequences. The main reason for this is that MDT has stopped working without any clues on how to solve it. Is there a way to automatically choose: * PCSE%SERVICETAG% (where "SE" is the countrycode") as hostname * Keyboard Settings * Timezone * Various regional settings *Correct placement in OU in Active Directory ? The OS langugage is and should always be English. We use Windows XP and Windows 7 Enterprise x86. We use sccm 2007 in many countries: sweden, denmark, finland, norway, england, france, poland, so the "rules" above should work for all these countries in a smooth way. A "pop-up" window that simply asks what country the computer should "belong" to, would be OK, if not possible to do automatically. Any help would be grateful! I'm kinda new at this, so try to explain very carefully, otherwise you will lose me on the way Regards Johan
  5. A shame really... A web console would be good. I don't mind people using the console with different credentials and security. But I DO mind people logging on the server itself...
  6. Is there a web console for sccm, as there is for scom ? Would be appreciated as I don't want our helpdesk to logon to the server, eventhough I can narrow down their admin rights.
  7. Hi everyone! Have been fiddling around with sccm 2012 for a few weeks now and everything has worked fine! Taking a break from it for a week, and when I went back today, vSphere warned me about cpu usage. So I logged on and realized that sqlsrver.exe was eating up 90-100% cpu Ive rebooted the server several times, but still no luck. Will have our SQL technician look at it tomorrow, but have anyonce experienced this? I know it's still a beta, and everything can happen but this doesn't seem normal
  8. something about not being able to find the boot file. In my past, i've always setup our DHCP to point towards the DP. So I've never tried this method before
  9. Yeah but if I do this once, then I would guess that I would need to do it again with another application. And then the the wheel starts spinning. Don't think Microsoft intended to deploy their own exe's in this way.
  10. Exactly, and the KB says that a policy must be implemented by GPO. I.E reg keys. That's not the way I wanna do this. Can't start fiddling around with gpo's just to deploy a single application.
  11. nope, that's not it. That requires to mess around with reg keys (UseMSIForLyncInstallation)
  12. Understand that! everything would so easy with just msi files. I followed the guide for Office 2010 (but I took Visio instead) and it worked perfectly. But I was also trying out the same for Lync 2010, but it didnt go well.. Could someone give me some guideance ?
