  1. Hello Is this the official in-Place upgrade for windows 10 for the folks who just upgraded to SCCM12 R2 SP1? https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt426642%28v=vs.85%29.aspx I cannot find any documentation on how to go about the in-place upgrade. I run through the process on my systems and even though the OS is upgraded to windows 10. It's not a smooth process. If you never logged in on the windows 7 prior to the upgrade. New users cannot login. Running sfc /scannow seems to fix the issue temporarly. Also windows update seems to create a lot folders on the root of C drive. Does anyone have a link to point me to the right direction. Thanks
  2. See link below from Dell. It should work with CM12 http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/m/videos/19973263.aspx
  3. Hi I have been tasked to deploy application to users machines via sccm 2012. One of the requirements is that when the application is installed, We have to delete it from the ccmcache. The following scripts does the job but as you can see but the detection method is making loose my hair. It works on the 1st deployment but if I deploy another application and use the same script. It detects sccmcachecleaner folder and flags it as a success hense nothing is installed My application is configured to with 2 deployment types with priority 1 as the script and priority 2 with the actual app. The 1st deployment type is has a dependency to the 2nd deployment type. The software we are deploying are license restricted and we don't want people digging through the ccmcache to steal the applications. Any ideas will help on error resume next dim oUIResManager dim oCache dim oCacheElement dim oCacheElements set oUIResManager = createobject("UIResource.UIResourceMgr") if oUIResManager is nothing then wscript.echo "Couldn't create Resource Manager - quitting" wscript.quit end if set oCache=oUIResManager.GetCacheInfo() if oCache is nothing then set oUIResManager=nothing wscript.echo "Couldn't get cache info - quitting" wscript.quit end if set oCacheElements=oCache.GetCacheElements for each oCacheElement in oCacheElements oCache.DeleteCacheElement(oCacheElement.CacheElementID) next set oCacheElements=nothing set oUIResManager=nothing set oCache=nothing Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set objFolder = objFSO.CreateFolder("C:\Windows\Temp\sccmcachecleaner")
  4. Hi I am seeing a very strange behavour with our CM 12 collections. I created a folder called Departments and created collections underneath it that queries Dept OU. Random collection are being moved back to the Device Collection and everytime I move them back. They reappear back under Device Collection Below is the collection setup: Each collection under Membership rule has "Use incremental update for this collection checked and Schedule a full update with a schedule to occur every day. All the collection has a limiting collection pointing towards "All Workstation". (This was created to exclude server OS) We have not run any discoveries so NO PCs are being discovered. Any ideas? Thanks
  5. Hello We have users in AD group that we would like to write a query that will return a specific software installed on their PCs. The query I have below seems to return blank result. Any help will be highly appriciatted. select SMS_R_System.ResourceId, SMS_R_System.ResourceType, SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.SMSUniqueIdentifier, SMS_R_System.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup, SMS_R_System.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId inner join SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS on SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.UserName in (select UniqueUserName from SMS_R_User where UserOUName = "Domain/SMS Security/DEPT/Java Users") and SMS_G_System_ADD_REMOVE_PROGRAMS.DisplayName like "Java%" Thanks
  6. Hi I am need of wisdom. We are in the process of migrating to MS Exchange and currently we have users who use outlook 2010 configured as imap. This were deployed via SCCM. How Can I redeploy office 2010 with outlook configured for Exchange? Thanks
  7. Hi We have been using SCCM 2007 over the last 2 years and thinking about upgrading to SCCM 2012: our current setup: One Primary Three DP 8,000 Clients Our Deployment is usually broken into 2 pieces. Regular employee computers and Labs. With the new changes to SCCM 2012 am trying see what will be the best setup. This is what we are looking at rolling in the next year or so that might play a role with SCCM 2012 design. MDM Solution Intergrate WSUS and install SCUP with SCCM 2012. We are lookonh at getting 3 DELL R720 server with the following specs: Processor: Intel® Xeon® E5-2680 2.70GHz, 20M Cache, 8.0GT/s QPI, Turbo, 8C, 130W, Max Mem 1600MHz Additional Processor: Intel® Xeon® E5-2680 2.70GHz, 20M Cache, 8.0GT/s QPI, Turbo, 8C, 130W Memory Configuration Type: Performance Optimized Memory DIMM Type and Speed: 1600 MHz RDIMMS Memory Capacity: 16GB RDIMM, 1600 MT/s, Standard Volt, Dual Rank, x4 Data Width Hard Drives: 900GB 10K RPM SAS 6Gbps 2.5in Hot-plug Hard Drive Chassis Configuration: 2.5" Chassis with up to 16 Hard Drives RAID Configuration: RAID 10 for H710P/H710/H310 (4-16 HDDs in pairs) RAID Controller: PERC H710P Integrated RAID Controller, 1GB NV Cache Any input will be highly appriciated. Thanks
  8. Anyweb. My director asked me if SCCM has the capabilities to generate reports on how many softwares a tech deploys a month via SCCM. This is for perfomance evaluation. Can SCCM do something like this? Thanks
  9. I wok in a large environment where we have techs assigned to zones. How can I create a report showing how many time techs deployed let say office 2010?
  10. Nerver Mind. I figured it out. Thumbs up for James Avery and Jorgen Nilsson. I created 4 Ts 2 UDI TS for Unknown computer collections and 2 for custom collections that pulls in PCs from the AD. http://social.techne...23-9fd5ea57f3ea http://blogs.catapul...collection.aspx
  11. Hi So I have been playing with the MDT Intergration with SCCM in particuler the UDI peice and I like it a lot but here is question of the day. We have wage employees that we don't want to give them access to the SCCM console. Majority of them usually will reimage PCs on the field. The UDI gives me options to choose OUs during the wizard. How Can I make this option availabe to known computers. I have tried the Uknown Computers collections and it works great. Is there a way to image an active PC via SCCM without adding the PC to a collection everytime? Am I making any sense? Thanks
  12. Has anyone tried to use the following plug-in "Universal Imaging Utility System Deploy Plug-in (UIUSD)" It looks promising but I haven't test it yet. It is created by Big Bang LLC and I was wondering if I can get an input if it's worth the time testing it. There is a lot of tools that are recomended by most user when it come to sccm plug-ins but this seems to be new. I work in an organzation where each Dept can buy anything they want. My challange right now is how to package drivers to support all of them. Thanks
  13. rana.rai I saw this one of our labs. Am assuming net boot is set as the 1st priorty. If so see the 2 fixes below. boot up to normal windows and do ipconfig /release reboot you PC. If you it goes through then go to step 2 to fix this the problem for good. if step one succeeded. what I can say from what we saw on our lab is that you dont have enough IPs. To fox this make sure the netwoek is set to keep the same IP when it PXE boots. If this is not possoble, make sure your PC is in netowk space with enough IP. Hope this helps.
  14. Hi Am hoping someone can help me out with this query. The query below pulls all the PCs that do not have the SCCM Client installed. Our discovery is based on the AD. The problem is we have all sorts of OS in our environment. How can I pull only Windows XP, Vista and 7 and exclude OSX, Linux and Server OS. select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System where (Client = 0 or Client is NULL) Thanks
  15. dcherry8 Check the link out. http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1735-using-offline-mode-in-windows-pe-using-usmt-4-via-a-task-sequence-in-sccm-2007-sp2/
  16. I saw this error task sequence has failed with error code 0x00000001when I rerun the TS before deleting the 3 folders on the C: drive. Delete the SMSLogs USMToffline USMTbits Rerun your TS and you should be good to go. Check you smsts.log and you'll notice the error "failed to create USMToffline folder. Hope this helps. Thanks
  17. The only difference am noticing is that the TS I imported from you doesn't have the hardlink load parameters. I don't think this makes a big difference. Thanks
  18. Anyweb No loadstate.log that I can find on the system. I have checked on the following location C:\Windows\System32\CCM\Logs and C:\SMSTSLog. I also rerun the TS and verified the loadstate log does not get created on both locations. Am I looking on the wrong place. Thanks
  19. Anyweb Hope this will be an easy one for you. I have your steps all the way to: do x86 scanstate. Am only running the loadstate and scanstate process. No OSD on the Task Sequence Here is what I can see USMTbits folder is created with the vb script USMToffline folder is created with sub-foders But when i navigate to C:\\USMTOffline\USMT\File\c$\users\user1. The profile is blank and no data has been moved. Any Ideas? Thanks
  20. Trevor I tried your suggestion with no luck. This is what I have Package Class Permisions on Dept A - Read, Distribute, Create, Delegate Package Class Permisions on Dept B - Read, Distribute, Create, Delegate Package Instance permission for Dept A - Read, Modify, Delete, Distribute Dept B can still deploy the package to their dept coll. Am I missing anything? lol if only technology can do that . Life will be very simple. Thanks
  21. Hi We are facing an interesting scenario. We have 1 site with 2 DP. All Depts that have their own techs who have access to buid and deploy packages. The problm we are facing is you have Dept A that has a software with limited Licences. They want to deploy this only to users who they approve within their Dept. How can I reistrict Dept B from not deploying that same software to another machine? I have tried to tweak around the class and instance permission with no success. How can I make it so if you biuld the package you can deploy it but no one else? Thanks
  22. Very interesting Idea. So if I understand you correctly. If a Tech try's to deploy a packages that does not belong to his DP. The deployment will fail based on the boundaries restriction. But what if the Dept spans across different vlans meshing in with another SCCM users?
  23. We have roughly 6000 machines. Over 100 Depts. As of now we have 3 depts using sccm and growing. If the solution above is not the best. How can we make the SW and OSD locked down so that each group can only see what they own? I was able to achieve this on the Collections.
