  1. I am having a strange problem, on a new captured reference image when it is deployed via PXE the client machine object becomes obsolete as expected but if i run the OSD TS on a live machine the client doesn't. I have checked the SMSTS.log and cant see anything but the one done via pxe is much larger than the one done on a live machine. Any suggestions guys? Thanks
  2. Hello I have an OSD task sequence, there are around 20 applications that install along with the OS Some are MSI, some are vbscript wappers I normally have all the content download locally but i want to try and run the content from the DP(much faster). my problem is the vbscript wrappers, they dont work from a UNC path. Now in the program for each app you can set the drive mode to "requires a drive letter" which works when you deploy the application through a normal advert. But doesn't work when i do it as part of the TS which is "accessing content directly from the dp" It just maps the drive, in the log it looks like its running the script but just hangs till it times out Any advice please
  3. Thanks for the reply Jorgen i have followed your work for a few years. What is the syntax that you set for checking the app is installed. I work for a university and will be deploying 350+ applications to over 3000 machines in the next few months. The TS will be based on application types so "Geography", "Advanced Computing", "Multimedia". The largest TS will be about 30 applications but i will be running several TS's on each machine. Any tips would be appreciated.
  4. Office 2010 http://www.itninja.com/software/microsoft/office/14-47 this is pretty easy to customize. You will need to add activation via KMS or MAK to make sure its completed silently. Adobe reader 10 Use http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4950 this creates an .msp download from http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/enterprise/ winrar Not sure about this as i normally use 7-zip Flash player There are 4 versions x86 and x64, all msi but to disable updates http://www.itninja.com/software/adobe/flash-player-3/11-1436 Adobe Acrobat 10 Pro If you have master collection use http://www.adobe.com/devnet/creativesuite/enterprisedeployment.html, other wise use http://www.itninja.com/software/adobe/acrobat-professional-x/10-263 and the http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4950 K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 8.4.0 If i remember the .exe extracts an .msi into %temp% but on installation i think it tries to open a webpage but sccm should suppress this Hope this helps Terence
  5. Hello All, Last year we deployed around 50+ applications via advertisements to a large number of pc's. The only problem was there was no way to set what installed first and if an advert failed. I would need to re-run each on on the machine it failed on. I want to install all 50+ via a TS, i wanted to know if anyone else has done this. I am testing many options I have tired adding applications one by one to the TS. I have tired using a variable to install each applications. I have tired getting it to download all the contents first. The testing has been pretty good so far but i would really like to see how other people are doing this and what problems they have come across. Thanks T
  6. Hi, its a UDI task sequence and it gives it a MININT name, i will run it again on a machine and copy the SMSTS.log file off it thanks
  7. Hello I have integrated MDT2012 into our SCCM 2007 environment but i have noticed a problem, in the UDI settings i have set it to "use existing computer name" but when i run the my TS using in PXE it doesn't pick up the existing name. Does anyone know why or what i am doing wrong Note the previous version(2010) picked up the name thanks
  8. Hello, when setting permissions in AD , once you have created the system management object and you delegate control, do you have to add the SCCM computer account or can you just add a group (which the SCCM server can be a member of). I added a group today but SCCM doesnt appear to have the right permissions to publish. thanks
  9. Crap i was hoping people wouldnt say that. Anyone else have the same experience?
  10. I dont know if anyone wants to know but i have a script now that does the job nicely, hope it helps someone. Just run this in the TS using the cscript.exe %scriptroot%\win7config.vbs dim strAllUsersDesktopPath, strUserProfilesDefaultFolder, strUserProfilesAdminFolder, strFileExt, strSharWiz, strCheckBox dim objWshShell Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") strAllUsersDesktopPath = objWshShell.RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell

  11. Hello All, I am wanting us a generated Config.xml does anyone have experience of using this in SCCM. I have seen three options on the forums but i am not sure which one actually works. /config:config.xml (This doesn't seem to work,some posts say that it looks for the file in the windows folder) /config:\\server\SMSPKGE$\CEN0007\config.xml (point directly to a DP) /config:%_SMSTSCEN0007%x86\config.xml (point to a the USMT package) If anyone has actually done this can you let me which option i should use. thanks in advance T %_SMSTS<packageid>%
  12. Thanks for all the suggestions, i think a vbscript is a good idea for modifying the default profile I found a sample script on appdeploy which is pretty good.

  14. Hello this is my first post, be gentle I am currently working on a project to deploy windows 7 to about 2000 machines. Using SCCM R2 Previously we would use a VM to build the capture a build but we are going in a different direction Windows 7 will install a vanilla image using a unattended.xml Install Office and a few adobe products then join the domain My problem is that i want to make changed to the default user(certain icons on the desktop etc, i have the reg key but , i have seen that some people have used the setupcomplete.cmd to add the registry entries to the default user before the gets to the login screen Has anyone else done this or has any other idea Thanks in advance Terence
