  1. I want to get rid of my 2008R2 distribution points so that I can upgrade to SCCM 1702. I created new servers with 2016 on them and used a powershell script to export (create prestaged content) the content from my old DPs. I then added the new DP's to my Distribution Point Group and imported the data using extractcontent.exe /P:<packagelocation> /F. The SCCM Console shows that the package is on the server but if I look at the "Distribution Point Job Queue Manager", it says the job is queued and/or is transferring. If has been like this for a week so it looks like it is transferring the data over even though it is there. How do I fix this?
  2. Does the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) need to run on my DPs? I installed a new 2016 server to configure as a distribution point. By default, the BITS service is installed and set to Automatic (Delayed). The service won't stay running though and I'm wondering if that is an issue.
  3. I am running Configuration Manager 1610 with hotfix KB4016483 installed. I can't install 1706 yet because I still have DP's that are on 2008R2 (which I am building new 2016 servers for). So of the 2016 Stand servers that I have installed in my domain are showing up as Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 10.0. Others are showing correctly as Microsoft Windows NT Server 10.0. I verified, the OS installed is NOT Advanced Server and it shows up as having Windows Server 2016 Standard in Users and Computers. Where does SCCM get this information? How do I fix it?
  4. I have 2 questions. I have 30 sites and each site has a distribution point installed. Each site is a separate location with multiple VLAN's, the main ones are a )servers, b )clients -connected via network cable, and c )clients - connected via wireless. Should I use branch cache, will it help? If I do use branch cache, do I keep my DP's at each site? What is the difference between branch cache and peer cache? Do I use both?
  5. I have not. I've been extremely busy so this has fallen off of my list of things to look at.
  6. What is the best way to update clients from Windows 10 1511 to build 1703? I have clients in multiple languages: English, German, French, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish, etc. I looks like if I use Servicing Updates, I would have to download each LP individually and deploy them.
  7. I have a site that has 2 buildings. Each building is on a different IP range. We are moving the servers from one building to the other so the IP addresses need to change. What do I need to do to change the IP address of a management point? Does everything in SCCM use the DNS name?
  8. Ok thanks. I will see about ordering a copy.
  9. No I have not. Do I need to book about SQL reporting or Configuration Manager reporting?
  10. Ok, I must be dense, but where do I add these values?
  11. How do I find out why clients say they are "At Risk" in System Center Endpoint Protection status?
  12. I have a subscription to a report for Endpoint Protection that shows infected computers. The report only shows the date range from when the report was initially created. How do I get it to show a "floating" range (the past 10 days)?
  13. My SCCM server (CM 1606 With Hotfix KB3186654))is currently running on server 2012 R2 with SQL 2014. Is there a way to either upgrade the current server or migrate to a new server with Server 2016 and SQL 2016?
  14. How do I set the time computers take between application deployment evaluations? I have an application that check to see if a process is running and won't deploy if the condition is true. (Like deploying Java, it won't deploy the new version of Java if Java is currently running). How do I set how frequently it checks? What downside is there to setting it to be more frequent? Hopefully this is a clear explanation.
  15. Is there a way to change a computer (Lenovo and Dell) to use UEFI instead of BIOS during the OSD? I have computers that we previously set to legacy BIOS mode but now that I can set up DHCP for both (Using Server 2016 Policies), I want to start moving the computers to UEFI. I figured I would look to a way to do it automatically before writing up documentation.
  16. I have a computer that disappears from the console any time it sees that the client in installed. The only way to get it back is to do a full discovery but the it shows that the client isn't installed, even though it is. I've tried reimaging the computer, removing the SCCM client, reinstalling it, etc. with the same results. Anyone ever see this before?
  17. I use EMCO MSI Package Builder Enterprise to build mine.
  18. Ok, I found the issue and fix but now my default profile isn't correct... I removed <CopyProfile>true</CopyProfile> from my unattend.xml file. Should that be copying the language too? Since I'm not copying the profile, how do I configure the profile so that users can change the settings if they want? I want to show all icons in the notification center, show only the search icon and not have anything pinned to the start menu.
  19. Before I created the WIM and ran sysprep, I installed multiple language packs (German, French, Chinese, etc.). As a test, I just removed the language packs and then recreated my image, same result though.
  20. To add more mystery. If I add another language after I sign on, that language that is set to default changes to say it "Will be display language after next sign-in" and it does indeed change.
