  1. Hi! I'm using a VBS script during OS deployment to set the AD computer description. But results are unpredictable at best (if you use numbers or gaps) Does someone has a suggestion for a good working solution ? script that I was testing : cscript.exe adcompdesc.vbs “%ComputerDescription%” dim Computerdn, strComputerName dim Args Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") '----Get Computer DN------ Set objADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo") ComputerDN = objADSysInfo.ComputerName strcomputerdn = "LDAP://" & computerDN Set objADSysInfo = Nothing '-----Read commandline--- Set args = WScript.Arguments strdesc = args(0) Addcompdesc strdesc Function addcompdesc(strPCdescription) Set objComputer = GetObject (strComputerDN) objComputer.Put "Description", strPCdescription objComputer.SetInfo end function
  2. EventId 5 Security-Kerberos

    Hello to all, I open my record again at the forum with a problem that is driving me crazy I have in my work environment a problem with many accounts that are abnormally block. I started all the troubleshooting steps, and slowly I'm probably coming to realize what it is, but I have this event that I can not read well: EventId: 5 The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_TKT_NYV error from the server% 1. This Indicates That the ticket used against That server is not yet valid (in relationship to That time server). Contact your system administrator to make sure the client and server times are in sync, and That the KDC in realm% 2 is in sync with the KDC in the client realm. Ok I found that could be a problem Kerberos ticket but the strangest thing I do not understand is why this computer receives this error from another pc and not by a server: The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_TKT_NYV WORKSTATION1 error from the server. This Indicates That the ticket used against That server is not yet valid (in relationship to That time server). Contact your system administrator to make sure the client and server times are in sync, and That the KDC in realm DOMINIO.NET is in sync with the KDC in the client realm. You can help me ?? THANK YOU
  3. Here's a quick resume of the current setup I am using. I've been using AD groups to deploy applications from SCCM with query-based collection membership for devices. In short, this means that in AD a computer is added to a group and whenever SCCM runs AD Group discovery and sees a change, the collection which queries that group also updates that group and the application is deployed on the target computer. This was done in order to preserve the historical AD structure and method of deploying applications (previously done with GPOs). This works flawlessly and is relatively quick. Since we do not have a way to remove applications as of now, I am trying to trigger an uninstall deployment whenever a computer is removed from an AD group. I cannot push an uninstall deployment method on a collection that would include all systems except those that are members of the deployment group since this would break systems with the target application installed before SCCM implementation. There is however something that I have tested with a single application which consists of deploying a configuration baseline to all systems that detects if that particular application is installed. I then create a collection that excludes the "Install target software" collection and queries for compliant computers. I then deploy an uninstall application on the resulting collection therefore uninstall the application from the member systems. It seems to work properly for now. I am using configuration baselines because of their ability to run powershell scripts as part of the compliance process. My question is, is it against best practice to have a lot of configuration baselines? I have around 40+ applications that are deployed through SCCM and it would require the same amount of configuration baselines to ensure application are uninstalled in sync with AD group membership. Thanks.
  4. Sharing and Folder Rights

    I am new to active directory and I am having issues with folder rights. This is my situation - Folder Structure Folder A Subfolder B Subfolder C Share folder "A" with GrpAdmin Read only Change Security for Folder "B" with user Teacher - who is a member of GrpAdmin - to have full Control User Teacher still cannot create files in folder B. Do i need to share folder B with user Teacher?
  5. Hello guys I need help in design in (AD) and SCCM 2012 my topology is : central site (HQ) and 16 branches each branch have 15 users and connected via IP-VPN to central I cannot make additional domain or even RODC in the branches , I just organized them by create OU for each branch My Question : what's the best practice to organize and manage those branches (in domain controller and in sccm) thank you all
  6. Hi guys, I'm new here, but I've been visiting every now and then and found a solution most of the times. I'm not an expert of GPO but I was tasked to look at a solution either ways (just joined a new team). Our security team wants to make sure that every single person in the company has to change his password every tot days. Now, that's done already, except for global accounts. Let's say _No-Expiration is a group containing all the users that I want their password not to expire. Now, what I want to achieve is to get a GPO set for all OU's which has to overwrite the Password never expires option in AD and unflag it (unless that user is a member of the above group). So I actually want to: Overrule AD Actually change the flag of the object Is this possible? Thank you
  7. I am having an issue with our client push. When I push the client to our machine it installs fine but it gets a incompatiable version and will not automatically assign the site code. I can manually set the site code as a local admin and it works fine. I am thinking this may be a problem with the way I have the boundaries set up in SCCM. My question is, if I change the boundaries or boundary groups in SCCM will I need to extend AD again? Or does the changes automaitcally get replicated to AD? Thanks!
  8. Afternoon All, I'm new to SCCM 2012 and really trying my best to get things working as I thought they should be... I'm trying to push a simple application out to a user colleciton which only contains and AD group, which intern has the specific users added. The AD Group is called SCCM_Deploy 7zip The user collection is called Deploy 7zip it has the AD Group (SCCM_Deploy 7zip) inside of it. I have the 7zip msi, all defaults turned on, and once I tell it to deploy to the 'Deploy 7zip' user collection nothing shows in software center. I have attached a few screenshots. Thanks in advance for your help
  9. I have one SQL server that is complaining about missing SPN principals. SCOM monitoring is saying SQL can't authenticate using Kerberos because it's missing the SPNs "MSSQLSvc/[server.domain.tld]:1433" and "MSSQLSvc/[server.domain.tld]". It's the default instance. This doesn't seem specific to SQL. I attempted to list SPNs in use with klist and setspn. klist will give me a list for the currently logged-on user, but setspn -L will fail, claiming this: C:\> setspn -L username@domain.tld FindDomainForAccount: Call to DsGetDcNameWithAccountW failed with return value 0x00000525 Could not find account username@domain.tld I'm also seeing odd security log entries, telling me the failure reason is "Account currently disabled," when it is not. The logon failures use Kerberos for the authentication package where the logon successes use NTLMv2. The setspn failure occurs on a domain-joined Windows 7 PC as well as on my affected SQL server. I can't list SPNs for any domain user account or domain computer account. I can log on using a username@domain.tld username from a console or remote desktop. Kerberos seems to work on at least two non-Windows PCs; there are two MacOS X 10.8 PCs that use Outlook 2011 and they log on to Exchange using Kerberos; the users log on to the domain from the MacOS logon screen and they get a Kerberos SPN they can select from Outlook. --
  10. I am working on a task within an OS build process to disable the previous computer object in AD. Within my OSD task I have the option to change the system name. When the name is changed I set a variable to trigger a script to disable the object within the full OS portion of the task sequence. (The task is setup after the ConfigMgr agent is installed.) Because, the local system does not have access to AD I need to use a service account to disable the object. No matter how I run the script I get an error code 1 from the return of the script. I have triple checked the password and the accounts access. The script runs fine from the command line once the OS starts. I just can not seem to get it to work during the task.

  11. Install Active Directory Domain Services Now that we have the VMs created, and the OS installed on both, we need to first install/setup Active Directory (AD). When you log into a new installation of Server 2012, Server Manager will auto launch. From Server Manager, click on Manage, and choose ‘Add Roles and Features’. On the Add Roles and Features Wizard, read the information on the Before You Begin dialog, and then click Next. On the Installation Type screen, select ‘Role-based on feature-based installation’ and then click Next. On the ‘Server Selection’ screen, since we are installed Active Directory on this local system, ensure that it is selected, and click Next. Side note: Windows Server 2012 has a new feature that allows you to remotely install Roles and Features on other systems. On the Server Roles screen, select ‘Active Directory Domain Services’. When you select ‘Active Directory Domain Services’, immediately you will be presented with the following dialog. Click Add Features. On the Features screen, accept what has already been selected by default, and click Next. On the AD DS screen, read the information presented, and click Next. On the Confirmation screen, check the ‘Restart the destination server automatically if required’ checkbox, and then click Install. Note: You are not required to check the ‘restart’ checkbox, however, you’re going to have to restart the system anyways after the installation, so you might as well let the system do it for you. Note: When you check off the ‘Restart the destination server automatically if required’ checkbox, you will immediately be prompted with the following dialog. Click Yes. On the Results screen, click Close. After the system restarts, and Server Manager launches, you will have to promote the server as a domain controller. This is because Active Directory has been installed, but that process does not automatically promote the server. Click on the ‘Promote this server to a domain controller’ link. On the Deployment Configuration screen, select ‘Add a new forest’ since this is the first domain controller in our lab. Then enter a root domain name, and click Next. In my example I am using “SC.LAB” for System Center Lab (since I will be installing all other System Center products in my lab eventually). For the Domain Controller Options, select the appropriate Forest functional level, and Domain functional level. This is more applicable if you already have an existing domain and are adding a new domain controller. But since this is the first domain controller in our new domain, then we’ll use the highest level, that of Windows Server 2012. Also, don’t forget to create the Directory Service Restore Mode password. Then press Next. On the DNS Options screen, you can ignore this warning message and click Next. On the Additional Options screen, click Next. On the Paths screen, normally you would change the location for the database, log files, and SYSVOL, but since we are just in a lab environment, we’ll leave it at the defaults and click Next. On the Review Options scree, review what you have entered/selected, and click Next. The Prerequisites Check screen will check and confirm that everything passes before promoting the system as a domain controller. You will notice in my screenshot, that I have 1 warning because I didn’t set a static IP for the server yet. After installation completes, the system will automatically restart. You will then be presented with the login screen. Something to note here, that because we were originally logged in with a local account, the first time you want to log on using a domain account you will have to type the domain\username; in my example SC\Administrator. When you login, you will then see in the Server Manager, that AD DS is now listed, along with DNS. Now all that you need to do is assign a static IP to your domain controller. To do this, in Server Manager, select Local Server from the panel on the left. From there, click on the Ethernet link labelled ‘IPv4 address assigned by DHCP, IPv6 enabled’. This will cause the Networks Connections explorer to open. From here, right click on the Ethernet network that is displayed. This is in fact the network connection that we configured when we first created the VM. On the Ethernet Properties dialog, select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’ and click the Properties button. Within the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties dialog, enter a static IP, gateway, and DNS that is applicable to your network. Once all the items have been entered, click OK. You will also have to click Close on the Ethernet Properties dialog as well. Congratulations, you now have a domain setup in your lab environment. Add Systems to Your Domain Now that you have your domain setup, you need to add your other VM (the one that we will use for DPM) to the domain before being able to install DPM. Log into the system you want to add to the domain. To do this in Server 2012, launch Server Manager, and click on Local Server. Then click on the computer name. This will launch the System Properties dialog. From this dialog, click the Change button. From this dialog, select the Domain option for ‘Member of’, and enter the domain name you want to join and press OK. After pressing OK, you are immediately presented with a Windows Security dialog, in which you need to enter the credentials of an account that has Domain Admin rights. Enter the credentials and click OK. Once the system is successfully joined to the domain, you will receive the following Welcome message. Press OK. After you press OK to the Welcome message, you will receive a second prompt, indicating that you need to restart the system for the changes to take effect. You will be back on the System Properties dialog. Press Close. When you press Close, you will receive yet another prompt about restarting the system. You can choose to Restart Now or Restart Later, but you won’t be able to install DPM without the VM being added to the domain. After the system restarts, you will then be presented with the login screen. Something to note here, that because we were originally logged in with a local account, the first time you want to log on using a domain account you will have to type the domain\username; in my example SC\Administrator. Now we have our Active Directory server setup and ready, and the VM we will be installing DPM on is joined to the domain.
  12. Orphaned printer queues.

    Hi I have a problem that I have been trying to resolve, and am not having much luck so far - hopefully someone has an idea. In my infrastructure I have a bunch of printer queues that are published in AD, but they are orphaned as the printer server that they were associated with died unexpectedly, and we did not have chance to remove these published queues in print manager. If a user tries to add a new network printer, via the directory, an error is thrown that the printer cannot be connected to (obviously) Now I know that the printer pruner service that runs in AD should clean these queues as the print server is no longer available. But this is not happening. I have been into the DC GPO, and enabled the pruning service (even though "not configured" is enabled) I have reduced the time and number of retries before the printers are pruned The printer server is not in ADUC I have looked through our ADUC with ADSIEdit, and the server is not listed anywhere, so I cannot remove the queues via ADSIEdit The server is not in DNS or DHCP reservations I cannot add the printer server in printer manager Other fix's MS provide include making sure that the pruner has permissions to the printer queue - but I cant do this, as the propertied don't open, as the object does not really exist. It looks like the objects are in the AD database somewhere, but I have no idea where, or how to remove them. Domain functional level : 2003 4 x AD DC's 1 x Printer server 1 x dead printer server which has caused this issue Thanks in advance if anyone has any ideas of where to go. Warren
  13. I have a problem at work where my new sccm 2012 server discovered way to many users. I had enabled the Active Directory Forest discovery and I thought it was only supposed to discover the forest and possibly add those as boundaries, but now I have 44.000 users from other locations I do not want in the DB. Is there a quick way to clean the DB for these users? The server is not in prod, but don't want to start over for I've already created some tasks and packages. I have since then setup the user discovery from the right ou, but is it safe to just select all -> delete? tried with a few, but its an extremely slow process. I'm going on vacation soon, so if that's what it takes, I can live with it And it's safe to delete users? It's only the users from the sccm db. It will never touch AD? Edit: All the objects that I want to delete has the Agent Name: "SMS_AD_SECURITY_GROUP_DISCOVERY_AGENT"
  14. Hi there, Just getting into SCCM 2012 and I have a question about what might be the best way to setup my boundaries. I would like to use our AD sites as it seems to be the least administrative heavy option, however because of our configuration I'm not sure it is possible. The way our AD sites are configured is this - we have all of our major offices with domain controllers created as a site in AD with all of their subnets defined, however we have branch offices that do not have domain controllers in them as they have too few clients located there. Those subnets are defined in the main office AD site instead of having their own site - which from what I have read is the MS best practice. My question is, is there a way to utilize these AD sites as boundaries and somehow override those specific subnets that are for branch offices, or do I have to scrap the AD site plan and do all of these boundaries as ip subnets and manually add the approriate ones to boundary groups? Thanks!
  15. Hello Thanks for reading my post To start with some basic info about my VM test lab Part one – My Lab I have two Windows 2012 Servers: Main DC called – NEW-DC01-W12 – Running DHCP – IP address 10.0.0.1 SCCM Server called – NEW-SCCM-W12 10.0.0.1 On my DC I made a container called System Management and give the SCCM server (NEW-SCCM-W12$) and my SCCM admin (SCCMADMIN) account full Control permissions to the System Management container and all its child objects. Not sure where the $ came from but it adds it when I enter my SCCM server name.

  16. Dear all; First thing I would like to thank all of you for your support and knowledge sharing. I have an issue with SCCM 2012 and Active Directory, I will describe it here. I have three Active directory one of them OS 2003 r2 and tow are 2008 r2. 2003 was handeling all FSMO roles and I moved the FSMO roles to 2008 r2 and tried to demote the 2003 to get the full 2008 r2 features, but when I was turned off 2003 for a while to make sure all our systems are up and running SCCM 2012 can not connect to database which the database on seperate server. For the information when I trune of AD 2003 SCCM 2012 connect to DB. I wish if someone helps me to resolve the issue. Best Regards
  17. Self-service AD

    Hi! I'm trying to figure out alternatives for domain-users to change/reset their password themselves. I know there are tools that run as a webservice, I know OWA can be used - but are there anything else, or are those the options? Due to cost, it's hard to justify spending that much money on a solution - but if anyone can reccomend anything, or got other solutions it would be great! Does any of the System Center 2012 parts allow for such a thing?
  18. I've been getting my info from this site for some time now. Great stuff and a big thank you for that! But I've come across a problem which I can't seem to find a solution for. I want to deploy software through AD security groups in which I put our computer objects. SCCM doesn't seem to cope with that though. You can create a user collection and link it to a security group, but then only users which are linked to the group get the software. That works just fine. I tried putting computer objects in there, but they won't get it. Only users will. Since I want the installation to be computer based instead of user based, that doesn't work for me. I then tried to create a device collection (which seems more logical to me than a user collection) and I thought I chose the perfect membership rule by using "System Resource/Security Group Name". But to my surprise no security groups are found. When I enter a wildcard in the value box, I only get to see client names. No security groups whatsoever. Security groups seem to be only linked to user collections. Why can't I see them? If the option is there, I should get to see them, right? This part really confuses me. Of course I can create device collections within SCCM as a solution, but I want to be able to manage software deployment through AD so we can drag a computer to a security group in order for the client to get the software. Is this the way it is designed, or am I overlooking something here? Or is there a way to get around this? I really hope there is, but I can't seem to find much about it on the Net. I don't understand why this doesn't seem possible. It just seems so logical. Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to pull in only computer objects that are part of a specific Active directory Security group to a collection, and how such a query will look. Has anyone had to do this in the past, and is it possible? Ultimately we would like to separate computers by departments, and our AD access is such that we cannot create new ou's. Thanks. Coenie
  20. Our AD went down the other day and we had to restore it from a backup. Ever since then, something has happened to the clients and they won't associate with the Site. I can't push the client install to any computer, but I am able to manually install the client on the the computer. Prior to having to restore the AD everything was working great. I have gone through and checked that all of my SCCM user accounts are still there, checked that the Schema was still intact (following this post). I ran the extADSch.exe and the log comes back and states that everything already exists. On the computer that I am trying to install the client on, here is the error message I get in the "Location Services" log... Failed to resolve SLP from WINS, is it published. Can anyone point me to something that I may be overlooking? Let me know if any other log files are needed, or if I should be looking at a different one.
  21. In a deploy task sequance you can set the AD location of the machine to build to, can you how ever have the machine detect the location (OU) that is is currently in and build to the same place or do you have to have a different ask sequence for every AD location? Thanks

    I am running MS SCE2010 on a windows server 2008R2. It installed ok, it complained about a few GP's, but I fixed those. Now I have a few problems, in the middle of the night, it insatlls and updates my servers, which I do not want, with my GP, I configured that to never do that, but with SCE2010, I don't know how exactly to configure it to only notify of updates, but to NOT download them or install them on my servers. Also, I'm trying to install the agent on PC's and it continues to fail on one laptop. The agent on all other PCs installed ok except with one laptop. I'm not sure where to go for the logs, as the failure notice is very generic and doesn't do anything good. Does anyone have any recomendations?
  23. Hi! I have a collection grabing all the computers that are a member of group2, and that works great. I also have this group1 that are a member of group2 with a lot of computers in it but that does not work. Is it possible to also grab the computers in Group1 aswell? SQL 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.SystemGroupName = "DOMAIN\\Group2" Thx for the help!

  24. Good morning, I'm setting up a system based on this guide: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1782-how-can-i-deploy-applications-based-on-ad-security-group-membership-for-computers-using-a-task-sequence/ Here's what I'd like to do: When I set up a computer association, I'd like SCCM to check what AD groups the old computer is a member of, and add the new computer to the same groups as part of the replace task sequence. That way, the migration would "migrate" the user's software along with user preferences and settings. Is this possible? The only way I've found is to write a powershell script that would copy a computer's AD groups. Would I need to write this script and have the replace task sequence run the script? The script would have to create the computer in AD and move the group settings. Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.
  25. I tried to modify the schema following this guide in preparation for SSCM installation. http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/489-how-can-i-configure-sccm-2007-sp1-in-windows-server-2008/ I am an Schema Admin but I am running this command on my SSCM server itself not on the DC, does it matter? and I am getting the following errors.
