  1. I'm running SCCM 2012 sp1 with MDT integration. I'm using a UDI from MDT to set some basic machine informatoin for imaging (select the OU in the domain, etc). I also have some optional apps that a tech can select from the UDI to install during the TS. All is working great with network based installations. However, I have a need for some installations using stand alone media. Is there a way to create stand alone media that will include those optional apps in the MDT UDI so that those apps can install during the TS? I don't think there is, but there are more brilliant minds than mine
  2. I have a question on the Evaluation schedule and the Deployment Schedules and how they interact. When you set your custom schedule to have the ADR run on Patch tuesday, there are 2 dates. The START date, which is when the rule goes into effect, and the Recurrence pattern, which tells it to run on the 2nd tuesday every month going forward. The deployment Schedule, which is when the updates are to be available for install, might have a delay of 10 days. But that 10 days is based on the START date, not the run date. So I might create my rule on April 1, schedule it to run on April 7, an
  3. Hi all, I'm looking at integrating a PKI infrastructure, and setting up an environment so clients can be supported over the inter-web. Does anyone have a 'how-to' out there? how about a basic doc outlining what you can / can't do? I've never touched it with SCCM. I'd like to setup software updates for 'roaming' clients that aren't in the office, push out software apps/packages etc. I've also got a few machines in a DMZ I'll probably manage full time through that model. I'd also appreciate any guidance regarding PKI integration and how to get that working. I know enough
  4. SCCM 2007 with an SMP. I want to do an inplace upgrade. Current machine is WinXP. The idea is to run a USMT Capture, replace the hard drive, then run an OSD on the new drive, and a restore. The problem is, because I'm swapping drives, I can't really create a computer association for the SMP, so I can't restore the data. The inplace association doesn't work because it's a new SCCM Client/Guid and a side by side association can't be created because the MAC address is already in use by the old Comp object. How can I do this? Anyone with any ideas? Thanks!
  5. Do you have any guidance on how to customize the UDI options? For example, within the default UDI the state store options do not allow selecting the state migration point as an option. How could you modify the UDI so that it will use an SMP?
  6. I'm running SCCM 2007 R3, USMT 4.0. I'm migrating User data from an XP machine to a new Win 7 install on a different machine. (side by side migration) And I've got my Stat MIgration Point configured, with a computer association configured. The user capture appeared to work just fine, as a data capture did happen. I'm running an UDI /MDT task sequence from MDT 2012 UP1 with almost no changes to the default settings that MDT would build when you create the TS to install the OS and restore the user data. When I run the task sequence to install the OS, and restore the user data
  7. Is there a way to migrate a task sequence that runs in pure MDT 2012 (not mdt within SCCM) into SCCM 2012? Thanks!
  8. Hi all, I'm curious about a best practice question. Assume you have a CAS and a primary server. WSUS/SCEP replication with MS is setup on the CAS. Do you let your CAS manage your SUP and SCEP deployments? For example, build your collections on your primary, then configure an autodeployment for SCEP and one for SUP on your CAS? Or should you then setup WSUS/SUP/SCEP on your primary and deploy from there? It seems to be that you should do SUP/SCEP from the CAS, but I thought I would ask. Maybe there's a reason you shouldnt. Thanks
  9. When you have SCCM configured to handle WSUS, should a client machine be able to run Windows update? Or will they get this error? My clients are getting a Windows could not search for updates error when they try it manually.
  10. I'm still working on the details of this.. but this appears to be 'normal behavior' which bugs me as I think it's poorly implemented. It appears that if a machine fails during a TS, or is interupted, SCCM leaves the unknown device in the system. Even if I re-image that machine, starting a new TS from scratch, it actually leaves the old object in place. Which was weird. If you watch a TS from start to finish, you can see the unknown device get created at start, which is normal, and then get renamed later at the end of the TS. This appears to be documented and there are discussions about
  11. We are trying to get the MDM running (light management through ActiveSync). But we are having problems connecting to our Exchange server. I'm NOT an exchange guy. I'm pretty sure we are just not hitting the hooks on the Exchange box. Here's relevent data from our log file. Anyone have any ideas on what we can try? Thanks!

  12. Well, that's good to know which is the right setting. I am curious... is there a way to change the settings after the SUP is configured in SCCM? Or must we remove the site role and reconfigure? We are set for port 80. As for our issues... I'll post the log here. As you'll see when you review it you'll see different errors over the last week 2 weeks. Initially, we had a conflict with the old WSUS server, then you can see we played around with various GPO settings until we got it 'working'. We tried 'disabled' but that clearly wasn't a good setting. At one point we modified the ser
  13. Is this Software Update Group that we created updated automatically? Or must we re-create a group like this on a monthly basis to deploy updates to the clients?
  14. Anyweb, I would like some clarification... perhaps you can help me out here.
