  1. My task sequence fails with - "this task sequence cannot run because the program files for 00100002 cannot be located on a distribution point" (00100002 is config manager client). Does anyone have any idea why? I notice that my client package says 0 programs and has DEPLOY greyed out, so cant be deployed. Has anyone seen this before? the 'version' field is also blank
  2. Hello, This is my first post on this site and I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using SCCM 2012 R2 and I was able to capture a Windows 7 Enterprise image from a reference PC for testing. I then deployed that image as a task sequence to another PC. My question is, why both PCs now have the same product ID under Windows Activation? Every other PC on my institution has a different license/product ID for each system. Do I have to use the build and capture guide instead? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi - I need some advice about where to search or what log to look at.... all of a sudden my Task Sequences for OSD are delayed in becoming available. For example: I deploy a TS to a collection but then when I boot, that TS isn't available for about a half hour and sometimes up to an hour. I have Googled Task Sequence logs, but I can't seem to find a log for just the process of deploying the TS to a collection, not the actual OSD itself. Any help would be appreciated. Jodi
  4. Under the 'Advanced' tab on a task sequence, I've noticed the option "Disable this task sequence on computers where it is deployed." As I can't seem to find any details about that option other then the fact it exists, I'm curious as to how System Center detects this and then disables the task sequence for the device? Is there a way to clear it for a computer that is needing to be re-imaged after?
  5. I work for a college and we have a windows 8 OS pre-existing in my lab. Those machines are frozen by DeepFreeze. I want to deploy another windows 8 OS to the same machines which will make them dual boot. We were using Ghost before and were able to do this by creating a separate partition and applying the OS to that partition. We moved to SCCM infrastructure recently and when I tried to accomplish this through the task sequence, the existing image get wiped out. Please help me with this.
  6. Hi All, Would like to know if there's a way to create a new Status Filter variable (Eg. %msgsys, %msgsrc and etc.) . At the start of the TS, the user who kicked-off the TS requires to authenticate before proceeding. Would like to capture the user's details (email, givenname and sn), store these into a variable (Eg. %email, %givenname & %surname) then pass it to the SCCM Status Filter Rules. Regards, ej
  7. Recently I updated my SCCM 2012 configuration manager to R2 SP1 in order to be able to be able to deploy Windows 10. Now I am trying to image machines using my old Task Sequences and my existing windows 7 captured images. I am able to boot and begin the old task sequences using the new boot images (Version 10.0.10586.0) but it errors out when it begins to apply the OS. As I understand the new boot images are supposed to support the deployment of Windows 7. I could use some help in troubleshooting this issue. I've included a video showing what happens during OSD deployment and the SMSTS.log file. Any help will be greatly appreciated. OSD Error on Apply OS.wmv smsts.log
  8. Hello Folks, Long time Windows Noob fan, first time poster... I have a question about a Task Sequence in SCCM with MDT... So when creating a TS via MDT, you'll have that nice wizard that helps you out and I could not find anything that would define when to create a new XYZ Package and when to reuse it or not reuse it in another SCCM MDT Task Sequence... Create MDT Task Sequence > Boot Image Step > you have a choice to use an existing one or create a new one... Since I only have the stock SCCM Boot images, i do want to make an MDT boot image for x86 and x64... - Can I use these MDT Boot Images for another TS, if yes, when would i want to create another set of MDT Boot Images x86 and x64? Create MDT Task Sequence > MDT Package Step > you have a choice to use an existing or create a new one. When you create a new one, the folders at the given UNC Path look like as if it is a new deployment share which you would use for WorkBench. - Can I use this MDT Package for another TS, if yes, when would i want to create another set of MDT Packages? Also, what is the best practices for naming convention or organization? Create MDT Task Sequence > CustomSettings.ini Step > again, you have a choice to use an existing or create a new one. Since i dont have one, i'd create a new one but when would you want to reuse it and when would you want to create a brand new one? For all 3, i feel like if i make a new anything, i should make a new folder though i'm not quite sure what the best folder plan is for organization would be. Thank you for any help, i really do appreciate it!

  10. Hi there Hopefully someone can help me out here. I plan on using a custom UDI Task Sequence to deploy a particular software package in our organization. The reason why a Task Sequence is been used is that we want to able to allow local admins/users choose the language of the software package that gets installed. I actually have it working already where, depending what a user chooses in the UDI, triggers a Task Sequence variable to run and install the particular language that the user had chosen. This works just fine and will probably suffice for our needs but i was hoping to add some more logic into the TS so that it would detect the OS language that the user has and then have the equivalent language of the software package already selected when they reached the the selection screen. As an example, if a user happened to have a Japanese OS, then when they came to the selection screen for the software package, the Japanese version would be automatically selected. I have already done something similar in the past with an OSD scenario (using CustomSettings.ini) where the default gateway IP determines what the timezone, keyboard settings, etc are automatically selected but what i'm trying to attempt right now is a "refresh" scenario, i.e., the TS will run inside the Windows OS and not PE. Anyone have any ideas on this? Thank you.
  11. Hello all, hopefully you can help solving this issue that's bugging me for quite a time. When we're deploying new computers, or computers that are not in the sccm database, we use the OsdComputername variable to name the computer, it's working well but when I'm looking for the logs in the console under system status> advertisment status the default computer name (minint-xxx) appears in the system column instead of the given name, until the task "Setup windows and ConfigMgr" has completed (and still the new name is displayed only for the "Software Distribution" component. here is a screenshot of what I see, it's not really important for 1 or 2 computer but when we're deploying 100 at the same time it's impossible to troubleshoot. https://skydrive.liv...3E677D04EA!5652 so how could we have the name we had specified in the osdcomputername variable at the start of the task sequence displayed in the "system" name in the status messages report? I know there is the the _SMSTSMachineName buit in variable but i'm sure how I can use that in my task sequence. thanks
  12. Hi Everyone, I am trying to automate MBAM Encryption during the OSD Task Sequence using the "StartMBAMEncryption.wsf" script provided in the following blog. http://blogs.technet.com/b/deploymentguys/archive/2012/02/20/using-mbam-to-start-bitlocker-encryption-in-a-task-sequence.aspx The command I use is - cscript.exe StartMBAMEncryption.wsf /MBAMServiceEndPoint:http://<MBAM Server Name>/MBAMRecoveryAndHardwareService/CoreService.svc I have used the script in both a "Install a Package" & "Run Command Line" group & both fail with the below error. Failed to run the action: Install a Package The system cannot find the file specified. (Error: 80070002; Source: Windows) Yet if I exit out of the Task Sequence, log onto the Laptop, & run the exact same command, MBAM Encryption starts first time without any problems. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! Jordan,
  13. I am trying to build and capture a Winddows 7 X64 Image using SCCM 2012 R2 (SP1). I have also installed Cumulative Updates 1 for R2 SP1 and made sure the client Patches CU1 during setup. I have been using Software Updates to clients on the Domain successfully but the OSD is failing to complete with the error "timeout period expired. Error: 800705B4" in the SMSTS.log (see attached). I have ensured the Client install includes the following (note the FQDN is different to this, trying to not publish to the world): SMSMP=server.com SMSSLP=server.com DNSSUFFIX=com I have added the hotfix KB2522623 and also included the following command prior to the updates: WMIC /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000113}" /NOINTERACTIVE I have made sure the client correctly connects with an IP on the active Boundary. Also I have made sure the updates are correctly Distributed to the DP. I am at a loss for what is happening here?

  14. Hello I am trying to put together an imaging process for where I work using MDT and WDS, I am learning to do it as I do it and so there is much much I not understand. Does MDT copy the %ScriptRoot% some where on to the C drive? If I say wanted to copy a file from the deployment share on to the C drive how would I go about doing this? When you execute a script you have placed in %ScriptRoot% how do you give the script access to a network share and the local C drive of the client computer simultaneously if you say wanted to copy a file from the share to local c drive? Or maybe this is already done for you if you place it in %ScriptRoot% - if not is it possible to edit the scripts such as LTICopyScripts.wsf and get it to copy your custom script across for you so you can then run it with only local permissions. Just seems to be a pants way of doing things - there must be something I am missing? I have spent a long time googling and searching forums and maybe its an easy answer (hopefully) but I am struggling - if you can point me in the right direction that would be awesome! Thanks Dan
  15. Hi, I have created a TS to disable the antivirus (Trend - PS script) and then do a Software Update cycle and install Windows Updates on our servers - see: The plan is to reduce manual intervention and hours of work, watching and waiting - for our manual servers (ie clusters etc) However I find I have to login to run this or it fails, then when it does the restart step I have to login again to complete it. Any ideas on how I can get this to run under Computer permissions so I can push it out to multiple computers without having to login. Anything else I should be adding/any ideas?
  16. Hi forum, I've added this command into my task sequence but unfortunately I still have to log in after the build has completed and click on Activate. I don't need to enter a licence key as that's in the T/S. When I run this command from a Run command it says it needs elevated privileges to run. Any idea how incorporate this into the command? cscript.exe %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato Thanks
  17. Hi everyone! I am experiencing a weird issue with a newly created task sequence in our new CM12 environment. This is a brand new install of CM12 R2 SP1, and nothing was migrated over from the old environment. We are a small shop with a simple environment, one single site server. I've created the OSD task sequence using our custom WIM that was captured in our old MDT/WDS environment (MDT 2012, not sure specific version) with ADK 8.1. The issue I'm having is that the task sequence hangs during the "Applying Operating System" step, and it doesn't go anywhere. I am working off-site today and have not had the opportunity to look at it, but a coworker did tell me it was sitting at a black screen with the message "No operating system installed, press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" which tells me the OS did not install properly. I was looking through SMSTS.log and didn't notice anything peculiar, but it seemed to stop logging after that step began. I've been Googling and asking others, but I'm at a loss right now. Is there a way to turn on verbose logging for task sequences? This is my first foray into using OSD, I've only used MDT/WDS in the past. Any help is appreciated. Thanks much!
  18. Hi, we're looking the possibility to request Username and Password ( so the HD staff can specify while we deploy a OS Task sequence (windows 7 standard image)). I saw the possibility to add a Variable to the device collection for request the computer name while the OSD start so i belive that if i add OSD varialble (OSDJoinAccount, OSDJoinDomainName, OSDJoinPassword, OSDJoinType) to the collection (and i specify the data request during the deployment ) the sccm join the client on domain with this credential but it doesn't work. what'is wrong ? Thank's in Advance. SCCM 2012 R2 Sp1 on windows 2012 server.
  19. Hello all. I am well versed in the Software Update functionality of SCCM but am just now getting into Task Sequences and could use some help. I am attempting to create a task sequence that performs the following: Check for pending reboot state If pending reboot state = true then restart computer After reboot, install deployed software updates Restart computer Perform scan cycle and determine compliance If non compliant, install software updates Restart Computer Repeat steps 5 through 7 again if necessary Complete I have been messing around with the Get-PendingReboot PowerShell script from the gallery: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Get-PendingReboot-Query-bdb79542 I'm a bit lost on how to take the results of a Run PowerShell Script task and use it as a condition to run a Restart Computer task. I also have no idea how I would execute a compliance scan and initiate a software update install of the computer if found to be non-compliant based on the software updates I've deployed to it. If it matters at all, I'm specifically focused on servers with strict maintenance windows. Our business is adverse to downtime so I need to attempt to configure SCCM to make the most of the small maintenance windows we have. Ideally our servers should come out of a maintenance window fully compliant and not in a pending reboot state. Any help provided is greatly appreciated.
  20. Hello, I'm pretty new to SCCM, and have made some progress in capturing a reference image in a vm, and creating a task sequence to install applications (Office 2010, Sophos antivirus, Reqourdit integration plugin) to a few of our new PCs which I'm testing. Everything seems to be working well except after the machine joins the domain, the applications in the sequence that are supposed to install are just sitting in a status of "Waiting to Install." I've tried putting a maintenance window on the collection that my test machines are members of, but it does not seem to effect anything. I'm begining to gather that this is an issue with scheduling, but I'm unable to decipher or gather much from the logs. I must admit I'm not sure which one would give me any concrete clue. What, other than setting a deadline in my deployment, and creating a maintenance window on my collection could allow for my applications to install immediately after the OS has finished being installed. Also what logs should I focus on to troubleshoot this issue. Thanks for your help!
  21. Hi All, Recently I have been trying to bit locker devices during OSD on a 2008r2 domain, with sccm 2012 r2 sp1. the schema has been checked and is correct (the 5 entries are present) CN=ms-FVE-KeyPackage – attributeSchema object CN=ms-FVE-RecoveryGuid – attributeSchema object CN=ms-FVE-RecoveryInformation – classSchema object CN=ms-FVE-RecoveryPassword – attributeSchema object CN=ms-FVE-VolumeGuid – attributeSchema object CN=ms-TPM-OwnerInformation – attributeSchema object The ad DC's have the bitlocker tools installed, and I can see the 'bitlocker recovery key' tab for a device in ADUC. I have a AD GPO in place on an OU where the device exists in AD But my task sequence fails at the ENABLE BITLOCKER stage towards the end of the TS. The TS was created by sccm wizard, nothing special in it as yet. If I disable the DISABLE BITLOCKER, PREPROVISION BITLOCKER and ENABLED BITLOCKER steps in the TS and build the device, then enable bitlocker manually logged on to the device, it works and saves the key to AD, I am obviously missing something here, anyone know where I should look in the logs... The device is uefi and has secureboot enabled The OS is Windows 81 x32
  22. Good morning, I'm trying to figure out how to apply a concatenated icacls command as part of a task sequence to enable inheritance on two files. Here's the command below: icacls "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config\machine.config" /inheritance:e & icacls "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config\machine.config" /inheritance:e I tried inputting this same command as part of a task sequence but it did not work. Any and all help is appreciated.
  23. By any chance... I am deploying new OS and when I give a name to the new computer before running the task sequence, for some reason if have more than 8 characters when applying the new OS the task sequence fails. Is there any way I can override and set it to take more characters? I noticed it fails during the applying Operating System step
  24. Hello, The Task Sequence that was deploying W7 with SCCM 2012 SP1 has stopped to deploying the Lenovo X240 laptop. The Laptop must load WinPE on Workgroup & PXE When I get on F8 to get an ipconfig, nothing but the message "configuration IP" is dysplayed, then WinPE reboot.

  25. I have some new HP Pro One 600 All In One units I am trying to pxe boot to run a task sequence on. Everything is normal until it starts to configure network settings, once that pop-up goes away it reboots. When I hit f8 and run an ipconfig it does not have an IP or anything. I am pretty sure I have the right drivers for the nic but could be wrong. When checking the smsts.log I get the following four errors, in order: Failed to download pxe variable file. Code(0x00000001) PxeGetPxeData failed with 0x80004005 RegOpenKeyExW failed for Software\Microsoft\SMS\Task Sequence GetTsRegValue() failed. 0x80070002. Hopefully it is just a checkbox somewhere but have been scratching my head with this for sometime. I am currentling imaging other machines right now with the same task sequence. Thanks for the help.
