  1. Thanks Peter van der Woude This is right what I was looking for and almost just a month after you posted that. A question. I am trying to figure out to have the container to recuse down. Or here is my scenario. Format he root of Device collections I have a folder called "Addon Apps" Below that I have Vendors of software. Like "Adobe", "Microsoft", "Autodesk", ect.... This way it is organized the same way as how i store the install files on my file server. With the command '$ContainerNodeId = (Get-WmiObject -ComputerName $SiteServer -Class SMS_ObjectContainerNode -Namespace root/SMS/site_$SiteCode -Filter "Name='$Container' and ObjectTypeName='SMS_Collection_Device'").ContainerNodeId' If the collection is at the "Addon Apps" it shows on the screen to be listed. If they are in the "Adobe" or any of the other folders underneath they don't show "Skip applications" but writes nothing. This is while using the -Container "Addon Apps" If I change the (-Container "Addon Apps") to (-Container "Adobe") it shows "Skip applications" It seems to only work with the root container or folder. Is this supposto or is there something else that i can change to get this to filter through.
  2. We have some Ergatroncis carts with laptops in them. They have managed cisco switches. Does anyone have information on how to setup and troubleshoot wake on lan with SCCM 2012 R2? Some of my machines have AMT but some does not. What information does it need to perform this and where does it get it from. Is this based from he hardware inventory? I know it needs mac address and ip. Is there a way to manually run the command that it sends out to trouble shoot? network setup. Yes my client computers are on a different vlan and network. Network is all cisco. Clients are Dell and HP desktop and laptops. HP Probook 6545b HP Probook 6555b HP Probook 6560b HP Probook 6570b HP Probook 450 G1 Dell Latatude E5430 Dell Latatude E5440 HP Pro 6300 (SFF and AiO) HP Pro 6005 (SFF)
  3. Does anyone know how to kick off all the Software App Installs after a OSD TS is run? Here is the scenario 1. The machine is apart of say 3 different collections and software is deployed to the collections as required. 2. The machine gets added to a 4th collection to image (from ts). 3. Machine is imaged with OS and base software 4. Right after I want the software assigned by those 3 collections to start installing with no interaction. Why. Because i have 1000 laptops in different carts that have different apps and want all the assigned apps to be installed before they get put back in the cart.
  4. There might be a way but for our setup we have an HTA that runs. I have at the top there username and password to proceed. That might be a way to do it. I us OSD not MDT. There might be a different way to do it with MDT. An HTA can give the the extra options as well. Like witch image, What software, or what collections to put them in. I take the machines out of the imaging collection daily. Plus you can put logging to see what people are doing. So when you have people that reimage the entire Business office then you know who did it and when. But also to know when was the last time the machine was reimaged. Also I have the HTA on the specific users machines. Once the machine is the collection (from actions from HTA) then they can pf12 or run the reimage TS from the Software Center. Hope this would give you atleast a direction you could go.
  5. Looked at some of them. It does not give me the machine status or that it is running.
  6. Is there any way from the console, report, or SQL to tell if a machine is running a current imaging task sequence. We have a few other techs and multiple buildings. I would like to know if there is a way to check to see if a machine is imaging. I have a collection for the image but i clear out the collection at 4am every morning.
  7. Can someone help help me get pointed in the right direction. I have SCCM 2012 R2 and would like to set up wake on lan. I am having problems finding information about this. I keep finding the 2007 information. Some of my machines have AMT and that is the other part of it. I have not been able to get that fully set up. I get the AMT status to say Detected and Not Supported. ( I would like to know why it is not supported.) I have versions of 8.1.31 that are detected and have version 8.1.20 and 8.1.40 that are not supported. My network setup has multiple subnets. I am trying to get a DP in each of the wired subnets. I am not sure if there is an role that needs to be added to the DP machines or if it just gets installed on the primary. I would like to wake the machines up and either re-image them or have windows updates applied and then shutdown.
  8. Has anyone tried deploying skydrive? Not the skydrive pro for sharepoint in office but skydrive? I am trying to get SCCM 2012 R2 to deploy the application. I am running into a lot of issues with finding skydrive pro not skydrive installs.
  9. Is there a way to change the color on the Software Center window? I know how to change the color of the Application Catalog. The Software Center to me stays blue. Is there a file option or registry key to change the color?
  10. Not per say... Are that check can be added. It is loading the AD powershell module a you would just need to add another check to say if status disabled then remove from sccm. Now I am not sure maybe someone else or you already know the answer to this. The AD discovery, I would think that it would pull the account back into SCCM. I am not sure if there is a check on status on that.
  11. I have run across this. It has worked for me. http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Cleanup-in-AD-deleted-b80e452d
  12. How do i add Dot Net 3.5 Framework to a win 8 wim or in a task sequence how do i do that during deployment? Also for adding this I know that somehow I have to install KB2771431 but can't find a way to slipstream or apply that to the image. I have also tried but was not successful in installing that update for the Dot Net 3.5 to install before in a TS.
  13. binarymime, Did the support agent come back with anything. It has been a month.
  14. Are you trying to use windows 7 boot wims. If so that will not work. It is windows 8 boot wims only. The boot wim files are located "?\Microsoft Configuration Manager\OSD\boot\" The ? is there you had told SCCM to install at.
  15. Did you find anything out or can you shed some more light on the subject?
  16. I have the ADK. This only uses the windows 8 wimpe. I need to create a windows 7 for the Intel P4 processors. Thanks for the reply
  17. I am testing to different models in my environment to move from SCCM 2007 R3 to SCCM 2012 SP1. I have run into an issue do to SCCM 2012 boot wim's are windows 8. We have some intel p4's that we have and they do not support the boot wim of windows 8. I took the x86 boot wim that I had from the sccm 2007 R3 deployment and tried to import that into SCCM 2012 SP1. It tells me that the image is not finalized. I have downloaded the WAIK 3.0 and tryied importing the wimpe.wim straight up and it would not. I am not sure if there is a way to take the install.wim from the dvd or another wim. I do not need very much in the wim, I use vbscripting. Or if there is a wim that i can download from someone to try? I need help finding out if there is something different that i need to do to create an boot wim and finalizing it to work with SCCM 2012 SP1.
  18. The user that you have setup in sccm 2012 an administrator on the client?
  19. So if i need to run updates for application "x" at version 4.0.0. So I deploy application x. What i want to know what is the best practice or best way to start the updates? Now the updates have to be deployed in order. So 2 months there is 4.0.3 Then 2 months there is a 4.1.0. Also how does it handle if I deploy Application X and then create an update through SCUP. Will sccm try to re install X to 4.0.0 or will it leave it alone and allow 4.0.3 to be applied with nothing after that.
  20. Peter33, What is AIP? Can you post a link to that? I just got the SCUP installed and got the 3 Adobe catalogs added in. Acrobat X, Adobe Reader, and FlashPlayer. Is there away to get more catalogs from Adobe? Another instance of updates that i might not have a msp, and I might have to look at SCUP for is like classroom management software that updates every 2 months. It is an exe? I did not know if I would update the application install or would i create a new application in sccm and then do something to tell the clients to update?
  21. In my environment we are running the Primary Site on a VMware cluster. In our other builds that are attached with 2 gb fiber links we have dp's. Our dp's are virtual but we use the esxi not in the cluster. The reason that we do that is so if the machine is getting outdated we can just copy the vm machine off and then we can move it to new hardware. We do not have issues with Disk i/o.
  22. Using SCCM 2012 and deploying applications. Say I deploy Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro (9.0.0) now say 1 month goes by and there is an update to 9.1.0. How would I deploy that to the already installed 9.0.0 and then update the install to the collection so it installs 9.0.0 and then updates to 9.1.0? I am using ad groups to collection and then advertising to the collection. I would like to perform the updates even though they are up to 9.4.1 and have to increment. Most of this is to clean up old installs that have not been patched. I have more applications then just this one? Do I create a new application for each of the updates or is there a better way?
