  1. Dear Experts, I Would like to get some inputs from you Please. My Data Center is located in 2 Regions. This data center is supplying the services (Windows Server, Network., etc) At Present we are planning to perform SCCM CB Implementation with High Availability for SCCM Client Roles. In fact not for SQL (Due to Commercial items) Single Standalone Primary Site is fair enough for the environment. However, We would like to reduce the usage of SQL Server, and make the Client facing roles with HA. Hence your inputs would be helpful for us Data Center Region A: Server 1 - SCCM Site Server - A Primary Site with Roles (Component Server, Site Server, Site System, Reporting Service Point, Other Non Client Facing Roles) Server 2 - SCCM Site System - Client Facing Roles (Management Point, Software Update Point/WSUS, Distribution Point (With WDS/PXE OSD Capabilties) Data Center Region B: Server 3 - SCCM Site System - Client Facing Roles (Management Point, Software Update Point/WSUS, Distribution Point (WithOut WDS/PXE OSD Capabilties) So all Client facing role, will be working with HA Option. However, PXE Boot for OSD will work only with SERVER 2 from WDS (Which respond to the Client during the OS Imaging) - To make this happen I need to mention the IP Details of WDS Server (Server 2 from Region A) in the DHCP Scope. Am I correct? The reason, I do not preferred to give the SERVER 3 (From Region B)as WDS Role with PXE, which we do not need to give the multiple entries with DHCP Scope (Option 66, 67) for OSD Please suggest, if this is looks good for an organization. The Ultimate goal is to reduce the SQL CPU Utilization.
  2. Dear Experts, I Would like to take an advice from you all for ADK are talking about ADK: Would like to get few points here At Present, I am having SCCM 2012 SP2 with Windows 7 with ADK ** Assume the Site Code : ABC Now the Plan is to do side by Side migration with SCCM CB V1702 and Upgrade to SCCM CB V1710 and this is to support Windows 10. Site Code : DEF Before I install windows 10, I will be moving all the clients from Site Code : ABC to DEF I will be having all my Existing Client move from *Windows 7 Machines* to DEF Site In the New Environment, Will be Managing both windows 7 and windows 10 1. Application Management (Windows 7 and Windows 10) 2. Patch Management *Windows 7, 10* 3. OS Imaging *Windows 7, Windows 10* I Would like to make my environment to be stable with both OS.

  3. Hi All, I hope you are well, Currently I have an issue I have unsuccessfully been battling with for a few days now. The original plan was to have the sccm db running on a sql high availability always on group setup. 1 x primary server 1 x sup server 1 x dp server 2 x sql servers when I tried to install SCCM initially, on the clustered sql, I was getting issues with listener admin rights / ports Excerpt from sccm install log --------------- CWmiRegistry::GetStr: Failed to get string value MSSQLSERVER Configuration Manager Setup 06/03/2018 16:05:16 92 (0x005C) Failed to retrieve SQL Server instance name[MSSQLSERVER]. Configuration Manager Setup 06/03/2018 16:05:16 92 (0x005C) WARNING: failed to retrieve port number for XXX-SCCM-LST.ncc.local. Configuration Manager Setup 06/03/2018 16:05:16 92 (0x005C) WARNING: failed to retrieve port number for XXX-SCCM-LST.ncc.local. Configuration Manager Setup 06/03/2018 16:05:16 92 (0x005C) ---------------- End of Excerpt XXX-SCCM-LST = sql listener this is a named instance on the sql (SCCM) and the sql port is 1433 /broker 4022 Why is it looking for MSSQLSERVER ? why failing to retrieve port ? So - I recently gave up and installed SCCM on a named server (not the listener) (SERVER-A - which is to be used in the HA cluster) sccm installs and works fine. I have installed the DB on a single box, and SCCM is looking good and functioning / patched up to 1710 + hotfix. OK - So I think I can do SCCM site maintenance, and change the DB location to the SQL Listener. But no same errors in logs again. Any one got any ideas or further experience with sql availability groups and are we missing something simple. Hope to hear back from anyone Regards, WAZZIE
  4. Dear Experts, Very Shortly - I will be having SCCM CB in my environment. I would like to get an advice/inputs from you to perform the Windows 10 Deployment Scenario's. Would like to get an advice, what are the topics - I should cover for Windows 10 Readiness with SCCM CB Environment My Organization preferred to perform the Management in the same way which I am doing for Windows 7. However, I would like to give some value added proposal's Any recommendations from you Experts?
  5. Hello experts, I am doing project at school (Windows Deployment). I have installed Windows Server 2016 onto VMware Workstation (DHCP, DNS, WDS, SCCM2012 R2, SQL Server 2012 SP1, ADK 10.1) and want to deploy Windows 7 x64 to other empty workstation. After powering the workstation on, it picks IP from DHCP, loads image, and after preparing network connections it automatically reboots without showing anything. You can see it here. I have tryed to troubleshoot. PXE is enabled, image, OS updated at distribution port, credentials are ok, imported vmware drivers, time is ok. I also run ipconfig, the device got correct address from DHCP. I will put the smsts.log - it shows PxeGetPxeData failed with 0x80070005. I spent hours and hours and still cannot find the sollution. I found some article - would it be my problem? The network port or DHCP may not be allowing the network connection soon enough though. The OS boots, loads, and initiates the TS process and connection to the site before the network is ready. By the time you press F8 and perform an ipconfig though, it may have completed successfully but too late for the TS initialization. Common solutions include ensuring that portfast is enabled on the port or adding a delay to boot process using a prestart command configured in the boot image. Thank you for your advice and tips! smsts.log ipconfig

  7. Hello to everyone, I'm beginner. The printer server has changed recently. We are using a new printer server. How can I remove the old printer on all clients from SCCM?
  8. A lot of my clients are stuck showing long since deleted deployments in Software Center. I've run all of the "client notification" options multiple times, and still the old deployed applications exist. I have also gone through the entire console and deleted all old revisions of any application. They are still there. Any suggestions??
  9. I have created a Windows 10 MDT task sequence in SCCM and am using the ztisetbackground.wsf script STEP_01 STEP_-2 etc My problem is that once Configuration Manager is loaded and the system reboots the screen goes black and stays on the "Setup is preparing your computer for first use." Is there a way to hide this screen during OSD so that my ztisetbackground.wsf script steps appear?
  10. I've previously blogged about Cireson's venture into SCCM management with their excellent ConfigMgr Portal. I'm happy to report that they havn't stopped there, they've listened to feedback and built upon that product to release a new product called Cireson True Control Center and below is a blog from Billy Wilson @ Cireson. Do yourself a favor and check it out ! I know I will ! cheers niall “With great power, comes great responsibility.” I heard that in a movie once. This is a quote that Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager Admins know all too well. Configuration Manager has a lot of power to manage a company’s servers and workstations from a central point. Gone are the days of carrying around discs to put an OS or application on a workstation or server. Also having to deal with multiple versions of multiple Operating Systems at multiple patch levels (if any). Then being told by the boss right before budget time, “Go forth and view the land and tell me everything we have, where it is, and who is using it.” With my Console, I can send out standardized images and applications from the comfort of my ergonomic chair and pull information from any of several hundred reports. That’s the great power. The great responsibility comes from the fact that if I am not paying attention, I can literally bring down every server, workstation, ATM, and/or slot machine (many ATMs and slots use Windows…fun fact) in my company from that same comfortable ergonomic chair. Its happened with SCCM before. There are career-ending horror stories (Google it). So, SCCM Admins must be on the ball and careful as the ultimate accountability for any mishaps with the system lies exclusively with them. So, when the Service Desk Manager comes by and asks if we can deploy the Configuration Manager Console to his or her team because they need to get response times down and don’t want to wait for me to deploy an app or get them info on a computer, I understand where they are coming from. I was there once. However, there’s no way I am giving out that Console willingly. Setting up RBAC so that a Service Desk person doesn’t re-image the Domain Controllers isn’t a lot of fun. And if anything goes wrong, do they hammer the Service Desk person? No, they don’t. The torches and pitchforks are all aimed at…. Giving the console out to anybody who isn’t a trained Configuration Manager Admin keeps people like me awake at night. But the need is still valid and Cireson has answered the call with True Control Center. True Control Center (or TCC) is a web-based Portal that SCCM Admins can provide to other levels of IT so that they can utilize the power and utility of Configuration Manager (and then some) to make their day-to-day lives more productive. However, the Admin has the ability to easily limit and target that power and utility so that these Analysts can do only what the need to, only to the users and computers they should access, keeping the rest of the company safe and allowing the Admins to sleep better. Here are some of the key benefits and features of the True Control Center. Web Based True Control Center is a web-based Portal that is easily installed, configured, and hosted. No more deployment of the Configuration Manager Console. Access from anywhere in the company using Windows authentication. Power and Utility with Remote Manage Information can be at your fingertips. You can give your Analysts the ability to access computer data such as: Current health status Network information Uptime Hardware information Installed Applications Installed & available Software Updates Currently running processes Current status of services Status of Software and Task Sequence deployments Primary User information (if you are utilizing UDA) They can access user data such as: Active Directory information Primary Device information Status of User-based Software Deployments You can also provide access to any or all of the hundreds of out-of-the-box ConfigMgr SSRS Reports that you find relevant to the Analysts’ job responsibilities and, if that isn’t enough, export the results of views directly to Excel or PDF! And that’s just information. You can also provide Analysts the access to perform the following functions on computers remotely: Deploy Applications, Software, and Task Sequences Initiate Config Man Client actions such as Heartbeat DDR, get client policy updates and hardware and software inventory cycles Reboot or shut down Create a PowerShell remote session RDP or initiate a Config Man Remote Control session Repair or uninstall the ConfigMan client or WMI Clear or clone app deployments Add or remove computers from Collections Terminate processes or stop and start Windows services Add or remove Primary Users Add and configure MDT roles Create and manage Applications, Software, or Task Sequences Add, pre-register, or import computers into Config Man For End Users, you can give Analysts the capability to: Initiate user-based application deployments Reset or unlock their AD accounts and passwords Manage their primary devices Integrated Not only does True Control Center integrate with Configuration Manager but it can also integrate with MDT. You also have the ability to link to External Tools so that you can initiate action on other systems and pass in data, such as creating an Incident or Change Request for a computer. Peace of Mind As a Configuration Manager Administrator, True Control Center will give you the ability to provide the power and utility with mitigated risk. Access to the data and actions above are easily scoped to Analyst role via Active Director group membership. You have the power to limit what computers, users, and software that a group of Analysts can even see in their Portal using any criteria that makes sense for your organization. You can make it so that there is no possible way the someone could accidentally push and application or OS to a server or collection. The result for an Analyst group such as Service Desk could be… You can also provide Analysts templates so that they do not have to remember what settings go with which deployments. There are even templates for adding Applications and Task Sequences to Config Man through the Portal as well. We help you take the guess work out and keep the amount of training required for an Analyst to use the Portal to a minimum. Easy training and offloading tasks will help you be more productive in your day as well and that is money. The fact of the matter is… the Configuration Manager Console was designed for Admins, not Analysts. Being able to offer a safe, intuitive, and easily accessible alternative will allow you to make your Service Desk Manager’s day and maybe your average work day, a bit more peaceful. Get started with a free demo today or take True SAM for a spin in the online demo lab.
  11. We are testing deployment of applications that require administrator approval. I would like to enable the Service Desk to approve these requests. But I don't want to make them full blown admins, or even application administrators. What kind of custom (or built-in) security role do I need to create, and do I include the computer or user collections (or both) in the scope for this role? We're running SCCM current branch 1706.
  12. Hello IT Geeks, I have a task got assigned by my boss to update the BIOS firmware on all the systems in company. which included different types of laptop and desktops models likewise, OptiPlex 7010/9010/9050 and Latitude E6450/7440 etc.. I would like to ask your support/help to do the risk analysis and the best way to doing this? I have pull the report from SCCM and found that we have barely 5000+ objects. It would be really nice if you can explain the workflow to carry this out smoothly? 1) How can i check what is the latest BIOS firmware version available for specific model? 2) Do i need to create application package for user based install or classic package for device based install? 3) How many types of collection do i need to create? 4) We have many offices globally so how this deployments needs to roll out on global location? 5) What are the things i should keep in mind first ? OS Overview/Impact, Updates and patches available, Potential actions, and best approach? Any help would be appreciated? -Roshan

  14. Basically we have one Primary site and few distribution points on branch sites. Our current version of SCCM is 2012 R2 1710. We do not want to upgrade it to version 2016, we would like to install a new fresh server with SCCM 2016 on it. Question is, is it possible to transfer all of the roles and put it as a primary, after that to decommission the 2012 ? Thanks in advance!:)
  15. Good night friends ! Is it possible for SCCM to include HP Blades with ESXi operating system in hardware inventory? Is this type of management possible?
  16. Hello, I have a somewhat strange issue where SCCM updates will stop coming through on Servers after a few weeks of working successfully - all maintenance windows are ignored and any new Windows updates are not delivered. After a reboot the servers will successfully then download the latest updates again and reboot during maintenance windows. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how I can resolve this issue? Thanks
  17. Hello Folks, I'm new to this forum. I believe that this is right place to post my query here. Here is problem with SCCM. I wrote a script that copy file from desktop to shared location. the script works perfectly fine when I run as administrator. Created package \ application for this script and deployed to my test machine. but It doesn't do anything while installing from my test machine even though I checked run with admin's right in SCCM. FYI: Method 2: Created bat file that calls my power shell script. No luck yet all! Method 3: Run the Powershell script by using coomand line i.e Powershell -ExecutionPolicy -Bypass -file "file.ps1" in SCCM Package\ Application. But No luck yet all. Please share your thoughts.
  18. Hello all, I hope someone can help me with this issue. We are using SCCM for managing workstations and servers and all worked so far with 1706 version for servers part (2003SP2 + bits2.5 ,2008R2 and 2012R2) My collegue have upgraded sccm 1706 to 1710 for having a new functionality for the workstations side. Since this upgrade I am not able to push sccm client on W2003SP2 servers (and yes, unfortunately we still have these systems which hosting critical applications) Pushing method: Only 2 files are copied (ccmsetup.exe and MobileClient.tcf) when I try to start it manually , the popup message "is not a valid Win32 application" appears. Manual method with older version 5.00.8498.1008: The process seems goes well but stay stuck at the client.msi install:failed during patch install CLP1031.msp SCCM pushing them from the last version: Windows Installer installed an update. Product Name: Configuration Manager Client. Product Version: 5.00.8577.1000. Question: Is it possible to install a old sccm client version which still work with 1710 and 2003SP2 ? Have you got any solution for me ? Thank you for your help and time, I am stuck with this issue and I am not a sccm expert. Kind Regards,
  19. Hi, We are currently looking at deploying windows 10 education 1610 across our corporate network (we are a college). The gold image has been created and successfully deployed to machines however we are finding that there are some drivers missing from the machines on completion. I know that drivers can be added into SCCM as packages to be used in the deployments but since we dont run on a standard model of machine this can become a bit of a laborious process. We noted that when you install a standard version of windows in a non corporate environment, windows will try to find drivers for unknown devices via windows update. Obviously updates within the network are controlled by SCCM but what we want to be in a situation where a machine is imaged and then windows update searches for any missing drivers. We have updated the configuration of the updates within SCCM to include updates for windows 10 and servicing to hopefully enable this (see the below images). I think really we need to know if what we want to do is actually possible within the scope of SCCM or if we are going to have to stick to the classic method of creating and importing numerous driver packages each time we add new hardware to our network. Any advice from the experts would be most useful! Thanks, Simon
  20. Hello guys, I need help, im trying to deploy a Win10 task with SCCM with MDT integrated via PXE in my lab. Everything work fine up until the point the task initiates. Basically what happens is that after downloading the boot image and starting to run the TS after a short while, when the Preparing Network Configuration Screen appears my VirtualBox just reboots and it tries again to download the boot image to run the task again. I´ve searched for a workaround and found one where it basically creates a sleep.vbs to stall for the network configurations to initialize, but still to no avail. Can some help me with this problem pls? Would greatfully apreciate the help Some notes: Both the MDT boot image and the original have the same problem. I´ve Tried with network drivers and without network drivers and still to no avail. I tried to deploy with MDT Task and just a Build an Capture Task it and got the same thing. The Configuration on my VirtualBox on the lan scheme is the Bridged adaptor. I've also tried with VMWare and got the same luck. I disabled the firewall on my machine that has the virtual box. I also created a GPO to enable the UDP ports that PXE uses I tried with 2 different network acess acount and got the same error. While in the machine it as an IP and it can ping my server. The SMSTS.log is in here: https://imgur.com/a/qjvze

  22. Introduction Microsoft (together with a bunch of Microsoft MVP's in Seattle) have released the latest Technical Preview release of System Center Configuration Manager namely System Center Configuration Manager Technical Preview 1711. There are two main versions (of Configuration Manager) available: System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) System Center Configuration Manager (Technical Preview) System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) is designed for use in production, for managing anything from small to very large Enterprises whereas System Center Configuration Manager (Technical Preview) is for lab environments only and is limited to 10 clients. The Technical Preview releases are released monthly, and contain the latest and greatest features being trialed in the product, and usually these new features are the result of feedback from uservoice. Current Branch releases on the other hand are released only a few times per year and contain stable, tested features that are mature enough to release into production environments. System Center Configuration Manager Technical Preview 1711 is now available. This release offers the following new features: Run Task Sequence step – This release includes improvements to the new Run Task Sequence step, which runs another task sequence creating a parent-child relationship between task sequences. See the online documentation for more details about the improvements. This is currently the feature with the third highest number of votes on UserVoice Allow user interaction when installing applications as system – Now users can interact with an application installation user interface in system context even during a task sequence. This feature is a popular request on UserVoice. This release also includes the following improvement for customers using System Center Configuration Manager connected with Microsoft Intune to manage mobile devices: New options for compliance policies – You can now configure new options for compliance policies for Windows 10 devices.

  23. Hi All, Recently we started experiencing issues with our OSD process creating an "Unknown" computer object with the PC's MAC address as soon as the first "Next" button is clicked at the Welcome to the Task Sequence Wizard screen causing the built to present the "There are not task sequences available for this computer" error. We advertise our task sequences ONLY to the x86/x64 unknown computer objects, so as soon as this object is created in the database the TS availability fails. We are running SCCM 1706 (5.00.8540.1500). Object Properties: Agent Name: "Heartbeat Discovery" Client: NO Client Type: Computer Decommissioned: No MAC Addresses: "A4:4C:C8:0A:C0:2C" Name: Unknown NetBIOS Name: Unknown Resource Type: System Unknown Computer: 1 Attached is the SMSts.log file for review. Any help is greatly appreciated! Matt smsts.log
  24. Hi We are moving from using SCCM OSD to using MDT for Deployments. In our SCCM OSD environment we used an HTA that would take user input and would generate a Computername (Specifically populate the OSDComputerName TS Variable). This worked fine in SCCM but since i've imported this into MDT its not working, meaning the build completes with an MDT generated Name like MININT-87976. I have disabled the computername part in MDT. I have also dumped all the variables during the OS Deployment to a text file, and ive noticed that the OSDComputerName is set to the HTA generated(correct ) name. So it seems like the variable is correct but its not passed to the OS. Any help appreciated and will provide more info if requested. Thanks
  25. Hello, I`m trying to recreate my customsettings.ini file in order to Join and provide a computer name during OSD, i`m wondering if it`s possible to achieve it based on the "constraints" that we have : 1-Diffrent OUs for each type of computer and locations: Desktop and Laptop 2-Diffrent defaultgateway for floor in each location. 3-Diffrent naming convention for each location and diffrent computer type. Thanks,
