  1. Good Morning - The CSV doesn't include the name of the collection - just the hostname and domain FQDN. The collection names are "Prod Servers: valuein2ndcolumnofcsv" with that value being the domain FQDN. That's why I added the line you mentioned above plus changed the variable used in the next line that adds the rule to use the new variable. Hope that makes sense and apologies if I explained it incorrectly earlier. Thanks
  2. OK - So I just tried it out and having an issue... I had to make a couple of changes to values to add in $newcolname as the names of the collections is "Prod Servers: domainfqdn" plus match headers in my source file therefore the script I tested is below as well as the source CSV and finally the resulting echo when testing the script. I'm going to play with it a bit more, but if you have any suggestions or thoughts, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! Modified Script Source CSV Resulting Echo To note, yes, the collections exist and after refreshing them each are stil
  3. Thanks! I'll give it a shot and reply back soon...
  4. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm trying to script something which I've done parts of in the past, but not together at once and need some assistance, please... Overall, I'm trying to add hostnames as direct members to a different collection referenced on the same row of a CSV source. Below is an example of the CSV source which states the hostname in the first column and its domain in a 2nd column. A collection already exists per domain which is "Prod Servers: domainfqdn". For example, below is a similar CSV with headers: svr_name,svc_domainfqdn SYSTEM1,DOMAIN.5.com SYSTEM2
  5. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm in a bind and need some suggestions, please... I'm currently in the middle of rebuilding our OSD task sequence from scratch to resolve a few issues. It's TS is fairly lengthy as it's MDT integrated and uses the UDI Wizard for customization of the build. One of the most used UDI features is the ability to select Applications & packages not installed by default for automated installation during the build. This has worked great in the past with Applications and Packages. The issue is that many of our applications are installed via task sequence &
  6. Hey Guys / Niall - So I'm in the process of revamping our OSD build process and therefore performing a couple of new build & captures. After creating a pretty much standard task sequence (non-MDT) and having it install a couple of applications, I ran it. It performs 90% of the TS correctly as it applies the OS, installs applications, etc. When it reboots to capture, though; it fails when "Initializing Hardware Devices" - opening a command prompt shows no network adapters. I can understand not having the drivers on the boot image or for Windows, but why not at this point? It
  7. Hey Guys - Sorry for the late reply. Found out that there were some routing issues with the server which I think caused the issue. Actually tried a site recovery a couple of days ago. Checked the status today and it said it completed successfully, but the site was still in the "Recovering" status. In addition to the initial warnings, it now also had the warning: Setup is unable to establish a remote connection to WMI on the secondary site. I still think there are routing issues, honestly; but in the meantime am trying a full install again to make sure by performing the below ste
  8. Hey Guys / Niall - When learning SCCM years ago, Niall's guides were my foundation. Despite having installed numerous DEV and PROD environments since, I still use the guides for reference. I'm currently planning on implementing Out of Band for our current Production environment as i haven't ever done so before, yet see a wide variety of guides online for how to do so. Some integrate Intel's SCS, some a variety of hardware classes, some use two certs, and some use four. Unfortunately, I looked on the dedicated Step-by-Step Guides page hoping to find a guide for this as I trust Nia
  9. Hey Guys / Niall - I've got a straightforward question for you all, please... We recently retied a Secondary server which was installed temporarily and did so by choosing to uninstall it from the console. Unfortunately, the uninstall seemed to only partially work. The console currently doesn't show any reference to it or its site code, but we are being flooded with the below status message every ~30 minutes: Site QDC has failed to detach. Refer to rcmctrl.log for further details. The thing is, when looking in rcmctrl.log, there is no reference to QDC. The server the seconda
  10. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm wrapping up the build of a brand new environment on a new domain we are migrating to and installing the last Secondary Site of 7. The destination servers of all the Secondary sites are all new 2012 R2 installations where I manually installed all pre-reqs, deployed the Secondary site from the console, and once complete added SUP & SMP. All 6 installed prior to this one went great with no issues. However, this last one is a pain even though I installed it the exact same way. It shows it completed successfully, but that's not the case. Below is a list of char
  11. Yes - In the new SCCM environment, boundaries & discovery are both configured for the old domain and workstations appear under Devices. I tried migrating another test VM today. I kept it in the old domain, but ran a script to change it's site code to the new SCCM environment on the new domain (even though staying on the old domain.) Still no luck. ClientIDManagerStartup.log keeps showing "RegTask: Failed to refresh MP Error: 0x8000ffff after I migrate it to the new site. I decided to ensure that the SRV record for the new sitecode was set up correctly in the old domain's DNS a
  12. Yes! - The schema has been extended, is showing entries for the Secondary sites I've added, plus clients installed onto workstation which are joined to the new domain are working perfectly. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  13. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm in need of assistance with an issue, please. Our company is moving all systems over to a new domain over the next few months. One other change will be that the new domain will have a new SCCM environment. Since I'd rather not manage multiple environments, the plan is to migrate all workstations over to the new SCCM environment over about a week's time before migrating the domain on the systems. I've already built the new environment and all site servers on the new domain so was ready to start client migration. Changing a system to the new SCCM site and new dom
