  1. Hi I have deployed Mbam 2.5 in our environment and the first tests (manual deployment of mbam client and encryption) have been successfull.(tpm and volume recovery work fine) However when trying to use the latest features, we can't get the TPM owner password to be backed up in Mbam. We use pre provisionning wih used space during the task sequence and it works fine. The user is prompted at first logon for the Pin and drive recovery is reported to the DB. However TPM password is not present. Whatever we tried, the TPM did not show up unless we suppressed pre provisionning. Has someone been able to take ownership of the TPM with preprovisioning ? During the TS, at the preprovisioning step, the Tpm shows as Enabled, Activated and Not owned, then in the log it shows that pre provisioning takes ownership. Of course, this prevents Mbam to do the same so no backup of TPM. in the following post, someone from Microsoft states that ownership is not taken, but it seems it does anyway. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/b915cd54-6371-4b28-aac7-bd3103dfd7ca/preprovisioning-bitlocker-mbam-and-tpm-password?forum=mdopmbam Thanks in advance for your feedback bruno
  2. Hi! I need some advice regarding designing a solution for remote sites in conjunction with SCCM 2012 R2. Im thinking about using BranchCache instead of DP´s, but I need some kind of approval that it actually works in practice. The scenario: We have 400 remote sites (retail stores). At 350 of the sites, theres 3-10 PC´s. At 50 sites, theres 10-30 PC´s. 95% of the PC´s are desktops used as cash registers. In total about 2000 Windows 7 clients. The bandwidth is 2mbit, and we shouldn´t/can´t use any bandwidth between 07-20. During the night we have to take some overhead into consideration since there´s a bunch of batchjobs running for the system used for the cash registers. In essence, we cant have 20 clients download a big update/application over the WAN-link. The staff at the sites wont have time for troubleshooting and/or reimaging the PC´s when they get new ones or if they have to reimage old ones, so we won´t have to take OSD inte account. They will use consultants at the local citys who will just come out and switch out the cash register/desktop when there´s a problem which cant be solved remotely or when they order new ones. So what I want is an easily managed solutions for getting applications and patches out over the WAN without using to much of the bandwidth. SCCM itself is up and running here at HQ. I could go with a bunch of local DP´s, either as dedicated servers or installed on one of the local desktops, but that seems like a high maintenance solution. Especially since the sites are remote and we have limited oppurtunities to troubleshoot/replace a DP when it breaks. My estimate is that we have to use about 30 DP´s at the sites with the most devices. Seems like a lot to manage, so I would really like to avoid that. Hence BranchCache! In theory, this seems like a solution that fits our needs perfectly, but I haven´t found any real world scenarios/case studys on the internets where this has been implemented with SCCM in a case like this. I can only find design studys on how to implement it. (and one case study from MS saying it works, but I dont know if i should trust them Maybe someone here has experience from implementing a solution like this? Does it work? Any particular problems we can expect? Will this solution give us less administration then using DP´s? Or will there be too many problems to recommend this solution in practice? Thanks in advance, any help appreciated!!
  3. Hello Not sure where to post this so sorry if in worng place Thank you for reading my post. I am brand new to scripting so my apologies if this is rather basic – But everyone starts somewhere. We are running Windows 7 desktop on a 2003 Enterprise domain. I need to copy some short cuts files (eod8 extension) to the start menu under “All Programs” in a folder called “EOD”. The users must be able to save and open the shortcuts (so using the All Users folder did not work since a standard user can’t save to that location) So I am copying the files to the local user profile. My Script setlocal set Installpath=%~dp0 mkdir "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\EOD" echo "No" | xcopy "%Installpath%*.eod8" "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\EOD" /d ENDLOCAL Timeout /T 1 When I run the script locally it works – When I deploy through SCCM It fails “Unable to find the file *.eod8” – What I have noticed is that If I go to C:\Windows\ccmcache\XX And edit then close the script file (no change has been made) it works through the Software Center From my limited knowledge I think my issue could be with the location\path of my script Thanks for your advice
  4. we are new to sccm 2012 and have had no training, so kind of feeling our we through it. a task that has been given to us is to try and deploy sp1 for win 7 via sccm 2012 but dont using wsus server. so i guessing we need to download the standalone sp1, package it and deploy it. is this the best approach or is there a better option. we have over 1500 machines to deploy it to. look forward to your response
  5. Cannot solve this. Windows 7 32bit Currently we have one drive in our computers partitioned in to 2. (C: & D:) New setup One drive one partition. (C: only) Right now users store there data on the D: like documents and PST's. And some machines have the pagefile.sys Right now its easy I tell it to migrate the whole drive and I exclude some folders with an unconditional exlude. Works great. Even doesnt get the pagefile.sys on the D: If I run the loadstate on the machine now with just the one drive it dumps everything that was on the D: to the C:. Very messy plus the PSTs are now not connected. So I tried a realitive move comand to try and get it under the users profile in my custom.xml when I run scanstate. Now if the pagefile is on the D: and I add the relative move of the D: it fails saying it cant copy the Pagefile.sys. However I dont want it to and have specifically exclueded it. Any ideas to move the D: to a folder on the C: (doesnt really matter where) and make it work like it was when the D: was there?
  6. Hello everyone, I’m having issues with workgroup computers, not domain systems when I request a certificate. The domain computers are receiving their certificates via GPO. It’s extremely weird. It has something to do with Windows 7 and Windows 2008 machines. On a 2003 server, I can request a certificate manually with certutil and "see" the certificate template. I copy over the exact command on windows 7 and it can’t "see" the certificate template. The Error --- Template not found. I have the following configuration: CA Enterprise I have created the SCCM Client Certificate I have created the SCCM Web Server Certificate I have created the SCCM Distribution Point Certificate GPO is configured SCCM 2012 R2 CU2 configured to do HTTP and HTTPS Installed SCCM Client Certificate Installed SCCM Web Server Certificate Installed Distribution Point Certificate Deployed to a domain computer good on PKI Workgroup Computers: I’m having issues with deploying certificates Windows 7 – (ERROR) not successful Windows Server 2008 R2 – (ERROR) not successful Windows Server 2003 - successful Windows XP – successful How I’m getting the certs for the clients is by utilizing the following scripts from this URL. http://www.ithierarchy.com/ITH/node/48 I did find a couple of errors in the code, but if it’s working on my Server 2003, then it should work on the others. Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 seem to have the same issue. The error I’m getting is the following: Command line requesting the cert ---- CertReq –new –f testcomputer.home.pvt.inf c:\client\testcomputer.home.pvt.req Error --- Template not found. SCCMClientCertificate (this is my template)
  7. We have been using USMT for many years kicking off a command line script on each the old and new computer. (Scantate & loadstate). In most cases we use MDT just for the build on a hardware refresh. This allows us to prebuild 100's of laptops and have them on hand when someone has time to swap out. My question is could I use USMT to backup the old computer and then restore it to the new one directly? Basically a "computer to computer" data and settings swap. I thought years ago I read that this could be done. But all of the searches I have done recently come up with nothing. This method would cut down on server space that is needed and cut down on time of backing up then restoring separately. If anyone has information on please let me know. Thanks, Darren
  8. I have multple customers at Different Geograpical locations. Over the past few weeks when my customers perform OSD VIA PXE packages have suddenly stopped being added!. Normally I add Reader, Flash, Mcafee Agent to the OSD Task Sequence. Now they are no longer being added!. The Task Sequence completes successfuly but those packages are missing!. I have Continue on Error turned on to prevent More angry people from calling me about task failing!. I am not in front of my work computer now to check the logs, but what log file should i check in to see what is causing this? I know i can always turn Continue on error off but i want to leave that for a last alternative. I know boundaries are not an issue as the task sequence is able to start. Enviroment Windows Server 2012R2, SCCM 2012R2, Image being deployed is Windows 7 SP1 64bit
  9. Hello! First time poster and also new to SCCM (2012) in general, but catching on pretty quickly. Much thanks to this forum. A little back story - we created capture media so that we could capture a manually built reference machine (a virtual machine). This capture spit out what would be our new base WIM. It worked great. This base WIM is essentially Windows 7x64 Enterprise SP1, all up-to-date software updates, MS Office 2010, and Internet Explorer 10 only. We kept our base very simple. The issue - We are running in to a very strange problem where we add our base WIM to our deployment task sequence, all seems great until you log in with a domain account. The Windows theme is some sort of "Windows Classic" or "Windows XP" theme. This does not happen for the local admin account though. So, you can log in as local admin, you get Windows 7 Aero theme. Log off, log in as a domain user and you get "Windows Classic/XP" theme (I've tried 4 domain user accounts to rule out the possibility of it being tied to a specific account). Log off and log back on as local admin and you get the Windows 7 Aero again. No idea what could be causing this. I thought it was possibly group policy because I was using a domain user account and maybe something was tied to it, but then I figured this would most likely happen to a lot of users in production and it isn't. I asked a friend and he said maybe look in to the unattend.xml, but I don't really know where to start with that. What could be in there that would be kicking off that classic theme look? This is especially weird when I am using a base WIM that I created from a Win7x64 Enterprise virtual machine that did have Aero turned on when it was captured. I found the following article from TechNet, but this talks about when migrating from XP to Win7. We are going from Win7 to Win7...We are simply updating our Win7 image because our most recent version was created with poor practice. The base WIM has so many programs that not all users need installed on - essentially a fat image and it's no good. The article seemed very close to what my issue is, but I cannot undererstand it. I do not know what scanstate and loadstate are, nor a config.xml. Plus, since I am not coming from XP this probably won't fix my issue. http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2010/02/24/get-shiny-with-usmt-turning-the-aero-theme-on-during-xp-to-windows-7-migration.aspx Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  10. I know that if you use to deploy through SCCM default instal.wim (from Windows Vista or Windows 7 instalation media) it will arrive on a D:\ drive, becuase all we know. But when I start testing with a local PC and appling image using ImageX /apply option to a partition with C:\ letter, write boot inf. (using bcdboot) it all goes good. The OS is boot to OOBE, ask lang., user name, time zone, etc. and start as after normal (through Setup.exe method) installation. And now I want to know, if it dangerously to apply image to a local PC without Setup.exe?
  11. Hey Everyone! Hopefully someone will be able to help me on this as I have been tearing my hair out the last few days trying to nail down what is causing my issues. OK, so I have had an MDT 2012 Update 1 server (Server 2008 R2 with WDS) up and running for quite some time now with (usually) no issues. I have gone ahead and started making my new image for my school system (Windows 7 x64 w/SP1) and am using a thick image approach so that everything is in the image and we can hopefully get things deployed faster. However, when I go to deploy my new image, the client makes the connection and goes through the process of downloading the image, restarts (as part of the normal standard task sequence) and then presents the attached error shown below in PrimaryImageError2.PNG. After click OK on that error, I am then presented with the deployment summary screen with a listing of errors (as shown in PrimaryImageError.PNG). The odd thing is that if I go into my Deployment Workbench, right-click on my Deployment Share and turn off multicasting, the image loads perfectly every time. Seeing as how I am trying to apply this to several hundred machines this Summer, using unicast sessions is far from ideal. I have Googled up and down the internet for possible fixes. I have re-captured my image (made in VMWare Workstation) several times with different options in sysprep thinking that may have caused issues, but no luck. We were hoping to start imaging machines almost 2 full days ago now and I can only stay up till 1-2AM so many times in a row trying to figure this out. Anybody out there have any ideas or advise? Was debating upgrading to MDT 2013 to see if that fixes any issues, but I'm trying not to cause other problems/conflicts as well this close to my deployment time . However, if anyone thinks that might work, I'll definitely try it... Thanks in advance for any suggestions and your time Scott
  12. Long time lurker, first time poster. Niall, your guide has been invaluable and Microsoft is lucky that people like you exist in the community. I'm sure it's a lot of hard work without much thanks - so THANK YOU! I followed your SCCM 2012 guides to setup a fresh install of SCCM 2012R2 Update 1 on a VM running Server 2012 + SQL 2012 + MDT 2013. My goal is to have a Windows 7 64-bit 'fat' image with Office 2013 + all Windows Updates installed that I can then use in a separate Deploy sequence. I am using a standard TS and not a MDT TS for the Build & Capture because I read somewhere that it was easier to use the standard to Build & Capture sequence to capture and then the MDT sequence to deploy. If I follow your Build & Capture guides for Windows 7 (also referencing the Windows 8 one because I'm using the install.wim method) everything APPEARS to go successfully. No errors appear on screen during the Build & Capture sequence and an image file is created. However after the image is created and the Build & Capture machine reboots, I'm asked to enter a computer name, an administrator password, time zone, etc. All things that I thought were spelled out in the Build & Capture task sequence. This makes me nervous that something isn't working properly behind the scenes. Additionally the root of C: still has a SMSTSLog folder. Digging through the SMSTS.log, I can see several failures that usually indicate a problem with DNS. I'm confused at how I have network during 99% of the process but then name resolution fails *right* after the Prepare OS step? I'm using VMware 5.1 and the VM is a standard Windows 7 64-bit template using the e1000 adapter. It's my understanding that the e1000 adapter works in all the recent flavors of WinPE. DHCP is running on a Server 2003 machine in the same subnet as the SCCM server and VM and DNS entries are correct in the scope and in the DHCP Server Options. I'm able to hit F8 during the Build & Capture sequence and I can verify the IP is correct, I can nslookup against the SCCM server, and ping. Things I've tried so far: * Recreated my boot files just in case (with ADK 8.1) and updated my DPs * Deleted all my TSes, and OS Installers * Download a fresh Windows 7 Enterprise with SP1 64-bit from Microsoft's site and imported it again * Created a new Build & Capture task sequence. The only modifications I made to the stock SCCM Build & Capture sequence are: Modify the 'Partition Disk 0 - BIOS' step so it only creates a single primary partition (not using BitLocker) and setting SMSMP=mysccmhost.domain.local * Resetting the SCCMNA password * Creating an SCCMNA2 account and specifying it under the Software Distribution Network Access Account tab (based on other folks' experiences) * Deleted the Build & Capture VM's device out of the collection and re-added it * Recreated the Build & Capture VM from scratch Any ideas at all? I spent the past two days going line by line through your guides again double checking everything I've done. smsts.log smsts.log

    Currently I am in the process of testing out the GPO settings including a pilot group of users for MDOP MBAM Bitlocker encryption. The only question I have is how do you suppress that box where it ask for Postpone/Start; (below image). I am doing this on machines who already have Windows 7 and deployed without Bitlocker enabled. First project was XP -> Windows 7 migrations. Now we are circling back around enabling Bitlocker on existing machines. All clients have MDOP MBAM 2.0 installed already. Everything works as I have intended, but with Postpone and Start GUI popping up to initiate it from the user. So we are looking to have it without any user interactions soon as Policy kicks in, so forth. I did try using the supplied regkey template in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\MDOP MBAM but I can't figure out what keys to add/remove, if any that could run without user interaction. Adding NoStartDelay DWORD doesn't seem to do anything other than display the pop-up sooner than the default 90 minute random cycle. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

  14. Hello All, I have tried searching but have not found anything that covers my specific need/concerns. I am trying to deploy a clean install of Windows 7. That part completes successfully however Windows 7 does not have the drivers for the network adapter built in. As soon as windows deploys, communication with SCCM and the rest of the world halts. What can I add to the task sequence to make sure that the driver is downloaded to the machine before/during the windows install? My Build: SCCM 2012 Sp1 CU3 Windows Server 2008 R2
  15. I need help imaging Windows 7 (64) Enterprise. I have been trying to use both the BrianJackson WinPE3.1 with GimageX on a usb stick and also a build using just ImageX. I can capture the image with both ImageX and Gimagex but I have been unable to apply the image. GImageX will look at the captured image and after a while will just close. If I try to apply it using Imagex then after a bit I see a message pop on the screen that says my PC has encountered a problem and then reboots. I have been unable to read the entire message before it reboots but it does not apply the image. I have tried using diskpart with no system partition created as one person told me that they do not use or create that and it works. The Microsoft pages all tell me that I have to create the Windows system partition but even doing that does not work. The times that I have managed to get a different image onto the computer the system will not boot and when trying to run BCDEdit and BCDBoot tell me there is no configuration store and so boot files never get copied to that partition. We do not have a Microsoft network so we are not using Active Directory or SCCM so deployment is not an option. The hardware that I am capturing the image from is identical to the hardware that I am applying it to and those are Intel DQ67 motherboards with 500gb hard drives and 8gb ram. Can someone help me find what I am missing in this process? It does not seem that hard and should work but definitely has not worked yet. Thank you.
  16. Hi All, I was wondering if you could help me in renaming PC's during deployment. I am just getting started with SCCM and OSD deployments. I have a basic working deployment that deploys drivers per model using a wmi query to find the model number. My (dell) desktops / laptops will install and join the domain to a specified OU. My problem is when i add the OSDcomputername task sequence variable %serialnumber% i get the following error just before it finishes the task sequence. "Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]." My task sequence settings have been attached if that helps. Enabled it and it breaks things, disabled it and it goes back to working again. 1) Firstly is this the correct way for automating PC renaming during deployment? 2) What are others doing to rename PC's during deployment? I have read a lot of posts on forums regarding this process including scripts etc but i cannot make any of them work via OSD. I have a working powershell script that i can run from the desktop that checks if the serial number (TAG) matches the computer name, if it does not it renames the computer to the Serial number (TAG). Then i join the domain but i would like this to be part of the task sequence so we dont have to revisit workstations. If anyone has a working solution for renaming PC's during deployment please let me know. Thanks for reading Regards Dave
  17. Hello, I think its called Zero Touch Deployment, I do not want to have to select the task sequence when I deploy an image on a pc. Can someone show me how i can make that? sorry for my english Gary
  18. Hello! I have been having an issue trying to get the correct storage drivers for a Dell T7400. I have used the Dell WinPE driver packs and the drivers that are listed on the Dell website. Has anyone been able to successfully pxe deploy this model? Every driver I have tried so far does not enable the hard drive to be seen in WinPE. I also have a T7500 and T7600 that is similar hardware that works. Could all the different versions of the drivers I have included conflict with each other? Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Hi everyone, I have to migrate 8500 PC from XP to Win 7 (and later 8.1) using a fresh install of SCCM 2012 R2. My goal is to be able to use USMT to backup user's files on a SMP server and I would like to do this in Offline mode. As USMT 6.3 is incompatible with XP, I found this article and successfully managed to backup data using Online mode and 2 TS as explained. Now, I need to be able to do a MDT task that captures data in Offline mode using SMP and not Hardlink because I want to reformat every computer. Has anyone been able to do this and is willing to share his TS ? Is it even possible ? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hi guys. I have been working on deploying bitlocker on running windows 7 machines using a task sequence. I have only found guides showing how to do this via scripts, or how to do this when deploying a computer. Not how to push this on active running windows 7 machines. Im hoping that this thread could help me with some issues i have, and hopefully assist others. Im using scripts from here: http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/bdedeploy/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=3205 So there are a couple of Scenarios i have to consider when deploying bitlocker: * Computers with a bitlocker partition, but not active TPM chip * Computer with active TPM chip but no partition * Computers that does not have active TPM chip or a bitlocker partition (would be most common) Im running allot of batch files, this is because it gives me better logging possibilities. I want to store what happens on a network drive so in case of problems we can easy find out what have happened. Plus, i just like batch files. Outline of the current tasksequence (all steps have continue on error) Connect to network folder (maps a network folder, in my case W: in order to later copy log files to network share). Create a folder. Command line, that runs a .bat with a service account that´s local admin on machine folder.bat :md c:\Bitlockertemp Create partition (have issues with this step). Command line: Partition.bat >>c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSpartition.txt Disable 64-bit file system redirection, running with service account. Partition.bat: PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1;C:\WINDOWS\system32\en-us; bdehdcfg.exe -target default This should either create a bitlocker partiotion, or say that you already have one Enable TPM (and bitlocker if possible), command line: enable.bat >>c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSLogEnable.txt . Running with service account This will either enable TPM and require a restart, or enable bitlocker Enable.bat: cscript.exe %~dp0EnableBitLocker.vbs /on:tpm /l:C:\bitlockertemp\BitLocker.log echo off if EXIST w:\%computername%\bitlocker-backup-key-package1 (echo "Already done") ELSE ( %~dp0keyupload.bat>>c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSLogKeyupload.txt) echo on Net use w: /delete /y rd c:\bitlockertemp /s /q Keyupload.bat: echo off md w:\%computername% cscript %~dp0GetBitLockerKeyPackage.vbs C:\Bitlockertemp\bitlocker-backup-key-package >> c:\Bitlockertemp\BitLockerKey.txt copy c:\Bitlockertemp\BitLockerKey.txt w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSpartition.txt w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSLogEnable.txt w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\DOSLogKeyupload.txt w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\bitlocker-backup-key-package1 w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\BitLocker.log w:\%computername% copy c:\Bitlockertemp\ADupload.log w:\%computername% rd c:\bitlockertemp /s /q The get GetBitLockerKeyPackage.vbs is for checking if AD have recived the bitlocker key 5. Restart computer, set to " The currently installed defualt operating system" Notify the user before restarting "Your computer is being restarted, if prompted to press F1, please do so" 6.Connect to Network Folder again 7. Enable bitlocker, runs enable.bat again, same as step 4 8. Disconnect network drive, simple command: Net use w: /delete /y My current issue: It´s with creating a bitlocker partition, Running just "bdehdcfg.exe -target default" , fails. I had to add PATH=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1;C:\WINDOWS\system32\en-us; In order to get it to actually run. But the issue im seeing is that when running this the computer stops at creating partition. Nothing happens, the tasksequence does not stop. Not sure if the whole tasksequence is fubar or if I am on the right track. Running the scrips by double clicking on them works like a charm. And the rest of the steps seems to work fine. Any assistance or input would be appreciated. Edit: Im running SCCM 2007
  21. hi guys i'm doing a lab from the book System Center 2012 Configuration Manager: Mastering the Fundamentals by Kent Agerlund, and in it, there is a refresh to win 7 from xp lab using mdt integraated with config manger. I'm following the instructions exactly, but everytime i run the task sequence to install the os, im getting an error even before getting to boot to winpe. Everything seems to be running fine, but then the task sequence errors out with this message Task Sequence: Windows 7 ent x64 has failed with the error code (0x0000264C). For more information, contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator. Then in Software Center I see this error Error: 0x4005(16389) I examined the smsts log and only see this error Error getting system isolation info. Code 8027000C Remediation failed. Code 8027000C Remediation failed with error code 8027000c researching the error codes i dont find a lot of information, suggesting maybe it could be a driver issue. i didn't add any drivers to my boot image but I was able to get into winpe before and it was the same task sequence using the same boot image so i'm unsure if thats the reason for the error im using vmware workstation 9 and sccm 2012 sp 1. thanks to anybody that can help EDIT* Ok i resolved the above issue (memory wasn't set correctly) but now im booting in win pe and getting "unable to read task sequence configuration disk" and navigating to smsts log i see error failed to find the configuration path error 80070003 One person resolved it by updating the bios but im not sure if that is the issue
  22. Good morning, I have printers set for inventory on my SCCM 2012 environment. I need to run a query on all USB/LPT connected printers in the district. Can someone please help me with a query/report or something that I can run that will give me a list of all printer models that have been collected from all my clients? This will help me in collecting drivers while we go forward with our district-wide windows 7 migrations. Many thanks!
  23. I created a task sequence to deploy Windows 7 and for some reason when I run the first disk the first step ask for the second disc and then through out the deployment it keeps asking me to insert each media over and over until it completes. The image was split between two discs and after selecting the task sequence it will not run in order. For some reason each step in the sequence is split between the .iso's and no matter how many times I create a task sequence it will run in order. Here is the tasks: Initial Steps 1. Run Command Line (HTA Frontend) Apply Operating System 2. Format and Partition Disk 3. Apply OS 4. Apply Driver Package 5. Apply Windows Settings 6. Apply Network Settings 7. Apply Device Drivers Post Install Steps 8. Setup Configuration Manager 9. Move Computer to OU 10. Copy Background
  24. Hi, I have been trying to get our OSD setup going for a few months on and off. I have overcome a number of issues by research, but this one just confounds me. When deploying Windows 7 x64 via PXE to new machines, I boot them from PXE, start the TS, and it successfully applies my Win7 x64 image. The TS joins the domain, applies drivers and reboots the machine, at which point it should run the step 'Setup Windows and ConfigMgr.' At this point, on all machines I've tried on, the TS fails. Drilling through the logs, I see the following activity: From ccmsetup.log: Adding file 'http://mbcmmp01.daysup.com:80/CCM_Client/x64/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe' to BITS job, saving as 'C:\Windows\ccmsetup\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe'. ccmsetup 9/10/2013 2:00:48 PM 2268 (0x08DC) A Fallback Status Point has not been specified. Message with STATEID='309' will not be sent. ccmsetup 9/10/2013 2:00:48 PM 2268 (0x08DC) From smsts.log: Executing command line: "C:\_SMSTaskSequence\OSD\DSC00053\ccmsetup.exe" /useronly /config:MobileClient.TCF /status:560 OSDSetupHook 9/10/2013 2:00:42 PM 2196 (0x0894) Process completed with exit code 1 OSDSetupHook 9/10/2013 2:00:48 PM 2196 (0x0894) Client installation failed, code 1 OSDSetupHook 9/10/2013 2:00:48 PM 2196 (0x0894) ...

Failed to execute task sequence (0x80004005) OSDSetupHook 9/10/2013 2:00:49 PM 2196 (0x0894) If you look at the time stamps, you can see the line in smsts.log that calls ccmsetup, then the logging passes to ccmsetup.log, which fails and returns to smsts.log with error code 1. Research told me to investigate BITS, which showed me two suspended jobs for CCMSetup and no apparent way to resume them (bitsadmin /list /allusers /verbose). Yesterday, I had found an error 404 when the client was trying to download ccmsetup from the BITS server. I restarted the server and today the 404 seems to be gone. I now see a status 207 for ccmsetup, which according to wikipedia is a multi-part success message. Here is that part of the IIS log on the server: 2013-09-10 18:00:48 GET /CCM_Client/ccmsetup.cab - 80 - ccmsetup 200 0 0 93 2013-09-10 18:00:48 PROPFIND /CCM_Client/ClientPatch - 80 - ccmsetup 207 0 64 62 2013-09-10 18:00:48 CCM_POST /ccm_system/request - 80 - OSD+Client 200 0 0 15 2013-09-10 18:00:48 CCM_POST /ccm_system/request - 80 - OSD+Client 200 0 0 15 Once ccmsetup is called and executed, I expect the TS to go on to the next part of the TS, which is Install Office and a number of other software titles. Unfortunately, since ccmsetup returns error 1, the TS fails and no software is installed. I am left with a machine that has joined the domain and can be logged in to, but it won't find its site code (even if left overnight) and there is no software on the PC. I'd love any information, as this project has been ongoing (albeit low priority up until now) since July. Any input would be helpful!
  25. Hi, We are running a Windows 7 rollout and have external engineers building the pcs off site by USB stand Alone Media they have no connection to our network. The two task sequences are the exact same except that one has Office 2010 Std and the other has outlook 2010 and the office viewers. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to have two task sequences on one usb or if there is any way to select different applications from the usb. Thanks
