  1. Good morning all, As stated in the title, i'm trying to get Software Updates through SCCM 2012 going and I'm stuck because i'm used to the old school way of doing this on a standalone WSUS server. After I had already installed the WSUS role as well as SUP I looked at the guide generously posted by anyweb here : http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5683-using-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-part-5-adding-wsus-adding-the-sup-role-deploying-the-configuration-manager-client-agent/ I noticed the few differences in my setup and his was I was installing using Server 2012, and at no point do I remember it asking me if I wanted to setup a default WSUS webpage. I know in standalone WSUS you had to setup IIS website for clients, but is that required for SCCM deployment? What I've done is the following: 1) added WSUS role to Server 2012 server 2) added SUP role in SCCM 3) I've setup my classifications / programs requiring updates and synchronized 4) downloaded Windows 7 updates and put them into a Windows 7 Updates group 5) now i'm stuck. I'm honestly ignorant to the way that SCCM deploys updates, and I think it's because i'm stuck to the way WSUS worked in the standalone and i'm over-thinking it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I believe most if not all on the SCCM side is setup correctly, for all are online/ok in Component Status under monitoring...I just need a point in the right direction on how to grasp the logic of how to obtain / deploy with SCCM. I know it's a lot easier than i'm making it, just need some help Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
  2. Wonder if someone can help me figure this out, I have an issue with updates installing inside business hours. We have SCCM 2012 and we've configured our updates to install after 6pm on Wed but we do NOT have them checked to restart or update during business hours. The deadline is Thursdays 1AM UTC which is 6pm Wed our time, the default business hours are from 5am to 10pm. We've had a few hundred machines that have installed updates at 9am Wed morning, they upgraded to IE 10 and a few other updates. I checked their logs and sure enough they went and installed and sccm called for a restart of the machines. We did have IE 9 set to auto upgrade checked but most of our machines 3500+ updated as normal after the deadline and outside business hours.
  3. Hello, Wondering if someone could help me out. I'm trying to do a build and capture including Software Updates. I can do a build and capture (without) Software Updates and everything works fine. But when I include Software Updates, the task bar will just sit there for like 30 minutes then finally fail. Times out I guess. It never does any updates. I am able to image a computer with software updates but I'd like to include updates in the image to save time. And the schedule updates on the system image only installs a few updates then I end up with 100 updates still to do after imaging. I can't do this when I have 30 machines to image. I have included the SMSMP=FQDN in the config and put my B&C collection in my Software Updates Group. Any ideas?
  4. Not sure what is going on here but my Client workstations are not detecting any windows updates from SCCM software update point. I installed the WSUS on the SCCM server, configured GPOs to point to the SCCM server per AnyWeb's guide on this forum.

  5. Hello, The guy the use to do the server updates retired and my boss would like to utilize SCCM 2012 to do the updates. They are currently getting there updates from WSUS and group policy. He has specific policies setup to restart specific servers at certain times of the day according to what works for the users. I'm thinking the best way of doing this with SCCM would be to create a software update group that contains those servers he had in the policy which can get restarted on the same day or at the same time. My question is that these servers are Server 2003, Server 2008 and Server 2012 systems. Can I have one group that contains three different Operating Systems and apply all security and critical updates to these servers or should each group only contain one specific Operating System? Any help on the best way to setup these groups and deploy windows updates to them would be greatly appreciated. How does your organization go about deploying Windows Updates to your servers\desktops? Thanks Pat
  6. Hello all I am hoping I could get some help with this strange issue: I am trying to install WSUS on my sccm server prior to the software update point. This what I have done so far: In server manger I select to install the WSUS role>Click next (I notice there is a feature option to install Windows internal database) I unchecked this option because I am using my existing sql server for the WSUS instance. I cant seem to find anything that say tells me that when installing sccm 2012 on Windows Server 2012 and you are using the sql database instance for WSUS to do xyz. In my case as mentioned before unchecked the Windows Internal Database Feature. Then under Roles Services there are three option: WID Database, WSUS Services, Database. I chose WSUS Services and Database. On the next page I defined my source for the downloads, then the next page DB Instance I entered the instance of the sql server which in my case is also on my sccm 2012 server VMSCCM is the name> Click Check Connection and that was successfully connected to the server. So here is where everything goes wrong. I then select to install everything at the confirmation page. reboot the server once rebooted I open server manager and there is message that says Launch post - installation configuration. I then get the following error "Post-deployment configuration failed see log below is a image for the log located in c:\users\username\appdata\local\temp\tmpFC3D\
  7. I feel like I keep posting questions. I tried to do a search on this but everything was bringing me to the exact opposite of what I am trying to do. It seems that even though I have maintenance window set for 18 hours on a collection every day for my testing. The machines install the updates but the user's are prompted to restart instead of just restarting the computers. I can't seem to figure out how to force the computers to restart, RESTART Suppression is only set for servers.
  8. We have a trouble patch (http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2013/09/11/outlook-folder-pane-disappears-after-installing-september-2013-public-update.aspx) that is messing things up and I can't figure out how remove this one update out of the Automatic Deployment Rule I setup for Office 2013 updates. Is there a simple way to remove one specific update out of the group? Thanks!
  9. Can anyone tell me where to look to find out why software updates would not have run/installed at deadline? We deployed updates last night with a deadline of 8:00pm. We have a nightly maintenance window from 8:00pm to 4:00am. Typically updates run without issue, but this morning I've come in to updates being available for install. Nevermind i found it. For any other n00b that may be looking. UpdatesDeployment.log on the client, as if it could be any clearer. Sorry my brain is apparently sleeping in this morning.
  10. Hi, we're looking at deploying windows / office updates to our Windows 7 machines via SCCM 2007 R3. We have both x64 and x86 machines in our environment. Most of the x64 machines are remote users and x86 machines are LAN connected in Head Office. Question is would you be better off patching these as seperate entities ie having deployment packages for x86 and x64 or have one set of packages that deploys to both machine types? We're trying to avoid making the packages we push out over VPN to the remote users larger than needed as they're cached locally from DP prior to installation. Any advice would be most helpful.... Cheers
  11. I am trying to figure out how to remedy a bunch of expired Microsoft updates (1,000+) that Is showing up in my SCCM console after I ran my first sync once WSUS and SUP was installed. Below are the steps take so far: Removed SUP role from my site server (SCCM) Removed WSUS from Server 2012 Restarted server Reinstalled WSUS (I noticed that the 2 previous synchronizations I performed from the WSUS console on the server was still there as if I never deleted WSUS.) Reinstalled SUP on the site server (SCCM). This time from the product list I only selected Security updates as opposed to: Security, Critical, and just plain old updates, which is why I think I have over 1,000 expired updates Also I elected to delete the expired updates as soon as they are superseded. I then let the synced the updates from the SCCM and let it run over night. I went to check the All updates section under application management node and there are about 648 new none-expired updates but the old expired updates are still there (over 1,000) I did notice also that the previous syncs that I performed on the WSUS console are still there even after I removed the WSUS role Hmmm, scratching my head.
  12. Hello all I just finish configuring WSUS and my SUP on my SCCM server but seem to have made an error in judgment. During the setup of the SUP I was given the option to select which software updates to received form Microsoft: Security, Critical, Office etc. Well I selected one called updates and I think that was a general option which is why I have like 1,000.00 updates siting in the All Software Updates section. I would like to do the following 1) reconfigure which updated I subscribe to (hopefully this does not involve removing sup or WSUS) 2) Remove all of the updates and resync from WSUS from scratch.
  13. I am new to SCCM and have built a test lab to learn the product. So far everything has been good, but I am running into an issue where my clients are not respecting the defined maintenance window. As far as I can tell, the device is not a member of any other collections with additional windows defined. The deployment is not configured to allow installations outside the window after the deadline is reached, so I am not sure what is allowing the clients to pull the updates outside the window. Some advice would be greatly appreciated!
  14. I setup a test lab using Hyper-V and following the guides here. Everything seems to have gone OK, however I tried deploying software updates to my test client and get what you see in the screenshot below. I tried tracking down a log file that might tell me what is going on however nothing jumped out at me. The client has a few software update logs but I'm not seeing any errors in any of them.
  15. I am implenting ADR for patch managment and I am having a bit of a Property filter issue. I would like to create an ADR that creates monthly deployments for my patch managment that I have control on when deploying. So I have checked Create new Software Update Group under general and cleared the "enable the deployment after this rule is run". My problem is setting up the property filters under software updates. Here are my concern: If I check "date released or revised" and set it to last 30 days, my first Software Update Group will only have Updates valid for the last 30 days. If I don't set that time frame it will create a new group each month with all the current updates and over time that will put me over the 1000 update mark esplecially if I incorprate SCUP. What should i do to set that first deployment or how should i setup my property filters? Any thoughts?
  16. I figured I start a new post on this. My CIO and I have been going back and forth on this question for several days now and I want to share some insight and get some opinions. We used this post as a starting point http://blogs.technet...nager-2012.aspx Our Goals Protect all Windows 7 Machines with the latest security patches (Builten Id:MS) and Updates Protect all deployments of Mircrosoft - Now Windows Desktop (Office, Visual Studio, ETC) with latest security patches and updates Protect all Windows 2008R2 Servers with the latest security patches and Updates Protect all deployments of Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash with securty Updates and Patches Deploy Latest Drivers and Updates to our Dell PC's Monitor Compliance of Deployments Implementation, Limitations & Concerns All Updates Create an All Update Group for Reporting Purposes. We Selected all updates and put them in this group. DO NOT DEPLOY this group to anyone. We will use it only for reporting Purposes. (Not sure exactly how yet) WIndows 7 Machines Inital Setup 1. Create an Initial Updates Package. We called it "Windows 7 Software Udpates - Initial". This package contained all updates up to and including 05.31.2012. Our Search Criteria consisted of: Product=WIndows7 Expired=no Superseeded=No Date Released or Revised is less than or equal to 05/31/2012 This gave us at the time of writing this 286 Updates 2. Create The Monthly Update Package for June 2012. We called it "Windows 7 Software Updates - 2012 06" This Package contained all the updates in the month of June. Similiar Search criteria as above only different Date Range. This gave us 37 More Updates 3. Both of these Software Updates Groups where then deployed to a "Windows 7 Machines" Device Collection we created based on the following WMI Query: 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 SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Workstation 6.1%" Monthly Procedure Create a New Monthly Update Package after each "Patch Tuesday" and Deploy it to our Windows 7 Machine Device Collection. (We may do an Automatic Deployment Rule for this that we can later Green Light, not sure how to yet. We are currently using an ADR for Endpoint Protection Definiton Updates) Remove all the Expired and Superseeded updates from all Deployments - Just create a search criteria for Expried and Supersceded to yes and Edit Membership. Uncheck the Check Box and they will remove themselves from your deployment group and delete themselves off the server in 7 days. Another good post about this procedure http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2012/04/12/software-update-content-cleanup-in-system-center-2012-configuration-manager.aspx Update the All Software Group with New Updates Concern - We will never be able to delete any of our Monthly Updates or the Intitial Update package as that would create a hole in our security Updates. I.E. If a laptop left the network for 6 months and came back. I am not sure if I care, it's just that in 5 years I will have 60 of these Update Groups. I also do not know if having so many deployments will effect Client / Server Performance in anyway. Microsoft - Non-Windows Inital Setup 1. Create an Initial Updates Package. We called it "Microsoft Udpates - Initial". This package contained all updates up to and including 05.31.2012. Our Search Criteria consisted of: Product=Expression Design 4 Product=Office 2010 Product=Visual Studio 2010 Expired=no Superseded=No Date Released or Revised is less than or equal to 05/31/2012 This gave us at the time of writing this 103 Updates 2. Create The Monthly Update Package for June 2012. We called it "Microsoft Updates - 2012 06" This Package contained all the updates in the month of June. Similiar Search criteria as above only different Date Range. This gave us 2 More Updates 3. We had to create serveral deployments for this. One for each application that we deployed. Concern/Question 1. Again you will not be able to delete any of these deployments for threat of creating a security hole. 2.. Should we just combine the packages and deploy them to all Windows 7 Machines? Will this create any Client/Server Performance Issues? Adobe Updates **This Assumes you have already setup SCUP and have an understanding of it. We used this youtube tutorial to get started. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyEGWSFWyy0 SCUP In SCUP we are going to Create 2 Publications. One for the intial Deployment and then another for the Monthly Updates. You will find that the updates here or a bit more infrequent and you may switch to a quaterly update 1. The Inital Publication we selected all updates, there were 39. 2. We assign the updates to a new Publication called "Adobe Updates - Inital" 3. We published Full Content 4. We will do the same thing for "Adobe Updates- 2012 06" ***Not 100% sure we need to seperate out these updates or if we can publish to an all encompasing group. Inital Setup 1. Create an Initial Updates Package. We called it "Adobe Udpates - Initial". This package contained all updates up to and including 05.31.2012. Our Search Criteria consisted of: Product=Adobe Acrobat Product=Adobe Reader Product=Adobe Flash Player Expired=no Superseded=No Date Released or Revised is less than or equal to 05/31/2012 This gave us at the time of writing this 39 Updates 2. Create The Monthly Update Package for June 2012. We called it "Adobe Updates - 2012 06" This Package contained all the updates in the month of June. Similiar Search criteria as above only different Date Range. This gave us 2 More Updates 3. We had to create serveral deployments for this. One for each application that we deployed. Same Concerns and Questions 1. Again you will not be able to delete any of these deployments for threat of creating a security hole. 2.. Should we just combine the packages and deploy them to all Windows 7 Machines? Will this create any Client/Server Performance Issues? Conclusions I know I left out a bunch here, Still have to discuss Windows Server 2008 Updates and Dell Update. THe main thing we are still trying to figure out if it is OK just to have Several Big Intial Updates and then Just one Software Update for Everything. How will that effect client/server performance. I will clean this post up over time. Just wanted to get some feed back to start. Not sure if I am overthinking this or not..
  17. Hi everybody After I have downloaded the first set of updates, subsequently set up the first Software Update Group and assigned it to a Device Collection I defined beforehand, I am currently struggling with the following issue: Not even one single Software Update in the Software Update Group is shown as "Required" in the Console. The clients in the Device Collection are definitely not having these updates installed already. Which should put the status of all the Updates to "Required". To me, this makes absolutely no sense since applications can be deployed without any problems. So it's not basically a communication issue between the client(s) and the backend. The architecture here consists of 4 servers and is set up as the following (NAME - ROLES): SRV1 - Component, Site Server, Site System, Reporting, DB SRV2 - Component, Site Server, Site System, App Catalog, DB, Management Point SRV3 - Component, Site Server, Site System, Distribution Point SRV4 - Component, Site Site System, Software Update Point Some logfile-entries from the client: UpdatesDeployment.log <![LOG[Evaluation initiated for (0) assignments.]LOG]!><time="09:50:44.931-120" date="08-31-2012" component="UpdatesDeploymentAgent" context="" type="1" thread="5272" file="assignmentsmanager.cpp:1108"> <![LOG[Message received: '<?xml version='1.0' ?><SoftwareUpdatesMessage MessageType='EvaluateAssignments'><UseCachedResults>False</UseCachedResults></SoftwareUpdatesMessage>']LOG]!><time="10:06:15.033-120" date="08-31-2012" component="UpdatesDeploymentAgent" context="" type="1" thread="5996" file="cdeploymentagent.cpp:189"> <![LOG[Removing scan history to force non cached results]LOG]!><time="10:06:15.033-120" date="08-31-2012" component="UpdatesDeploymentAgent" context="" type="1" thread="5996" file="assignmentsmanager.cpp:1217"> <![LOG[Assignment({8E213C0E-2B01-46C8-9293-8F9DA552C464}) already in progress state (AssignmentStateDetecting).

  18. Below is an error message I'm getting when I launch a Sync from the Config Manager console. This error shows in my site system status. Failures were reported on WSUS Server "TECH-SCCM1-MSV.forneyisd.net" for WSUS components "WSUSService,". Solution: Verify that the failed WSUS components are installed and running. Any ideas?
  19. Dear All, Some background information... Over the last few months my colleagues and I have been working on building the foundations for our Windows 7 project. We have previously used WSUS as a stand alone service (This will still be used for Windows XP and Server based updates), however we have now built a new WSUS server specifically for use with SCCM 2007 SP2. Now for my problem... Our WSUS server has been installed and the updates are being populated into SCCM. I have created an update list and i am now attempting to download the updates and assign them to our deployment package. It appears that some of the updates download OK but as for other i am prompted with errors such as below: - Warning: Security Update for Microsoft Chart Controls for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (KB2500170) Errors The requested header was not found What have a i tried so far to troubleshoot the error? I have attempted to download the update on both the SCCM Server and the WSUS Server directly - this works OK I have checked and compared the proxy/PAC File settings on the old WSUS and the new WSUS/SCCM Servers and all of these match OK I have attempted to re-create an update list, deployment package and share but i am still prompted with the same error message I have compared the source location with the distribution folder and these match like for like, however not all updates are visible in the deployment package If anyone else has come across similar issues or can provide further suggestions this would be highly appreciated Thanks Richard
  20. Hi I have question regarding some OS installations that are stuck in the running state long after the installation has finished. This is a problem for us because other software will not get installed unless the OSD has finished successfully. The final step in our OSD task sequence installs all software updates that are advertised. And I have selected to ignore errors in case they do occur. Because software updates will get install later on anyway (not preferred). But the problem is that when we are advertising more updates to a computer than are available on the DP. Reason might be that the updates are currently being staged or we have forgotten to stage them. And the installation waits until they are available. Is there a way to change the installation status from running to succeeded? Either by a registry hack or an sql query? Or to have a time out in the task sequence causing it to "fail" which is ok because it's the last step. I have found the following key in the registry and someone here pointed out that if you want to rerun an advertisement that has the option rerun failed advertisements you can change it from succeeded or exit code 0 to exit 1 or whatever and the installation will restart next policy refresh. HKLM>Software>Microsoft>SMS>Mobile Client>Software Distribution>Execution History>System>"advID".
