  1. Have a working task sequence. Made a copy of it, but when I try to run the copy it fail instantly. The execmgr.log shows: OnOptionalExecutionRequests attempted for package CAS022E3 optional program * [QueueRequest: false RunOnCompletion : true QuietMode: true SDKCallerId: (null)] execmgr 08/02/2019 09:10:08 2320 (0x0910) Validating package CAS022E3 program * in the chain. The content request ID is {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} execmgr 08/02/2019 09:10:08 2320 (0x0910) Creating an optional execution request for package CAS022E3 program * execmgr 08/02/2019 09:10:08 2320 (0x0910) Cannot proceed while another Task Sequence is in progress. execmgr 08/02/2019 09:10:08 2320 (0x0910) OnOptionalExecutionRequests failed for program * : 0x87d01019 execmgr 08/02/2019 09:10:08 2320 (0x0910) Troubleshooting tried so far: -Ran powershell command which returns that there are no running task sequences. -Can run the original task sequence no problem at all. -Confirmed deployment settings are identical to the deployment for the original, working task sequence. The copied TS fails so quickly it does not get as far as checking for content - no entries in cas.log etc. Seems to be interrupted by erroneously thinking there is a TS running? Also fails before any smsts.log. Expect this is down to some silly error on my part that I am missing, but wanted to post incase anyone reconginizes the issue and knows what the likely cause is?
  2. Guys Been building Windows 10 1709 for about a year all fine... We are starting to build 1809 and all works except the TS/Naming now seems to ignore the Collection Variable 'OSDComputerName' I have both 1709 and 1809 images, both building from the same 'All Unknown Computers' collection, the 1709 works the 1809 does not. the 1809 uses a copy of the TS from 1709 with just the WIM changed. Any ideas? thanks
  3. I want to build and capture a ref image. Have a "Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2" Application Have checked "Allow this application to be installed from install application task sequence action without being deployed" Deployment type: Install: "NDP472-KB4054530-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe" /norestart /q /log "%windir%\Logs\Microsoft_.Net_Framework_4.7.2_Install.log" Uninstall: msiexec.exe /x {09CCBE8E-B964-30EF-AE84-6537AB4197F9} /q /l*v "%windir%\Logs\Microsoft_.Net_Framework_4.7.2_Uninstall.log" Detecion: {09CCBE8E-B964-30EF-AE84-6537AB4197F9} Above Applications work on a live running device. But it fail under a task sequence. My question is why and how do i debug on this?
  4. Hi all, I was trying to deploy a Task sequence, which I Copied from standard T.S. and made little change and trying to test it before using. This T.S. is to make BIOS system to UEFI system in boot (Dell system) and then install OS. But when I try to implement this its throwing an error code "0x80004005". I am pasting my SMSTS log file. Please help me. Log: please see the attachment.
  5. I am new to Task Sequence. I am working on a task Sequence to convert BIOS (Legacy) mode systems to UEFI mode systems (Dell Laptops)(SCCM with MDT) . Can some share a task sequence to do so or share your experience to do so. Actually my requirement is to add these steps for PXE OSD win 10 1607 task sequence.
  6. My TS OSD used to take around 35-40 minutes to complete. But after enabling Pre-Release in Hierarchy, my TS now takes over 1 hour. It struggles when it gets to packages/applications. This is the changes I made after enabling pre-release Time it takes to complete the TS OLD TS After enabling Pre-Release and Share Content It looks like it's waiting for something to happen, but I don't know what. How do I fix this? Or go back to how apps/packages are deployed. Many thanks,
  7. Hello everyone, I'm currently trying to learn about SCCM and deploying Windows 10 using PXE and MDT, however my clients never seem to get to the task sequence part, instead they just reboot when it says "Preparing network connections". I am able to stop the reboot by pressing F8 and it shows I have an ip, disk looks good using diskpart, can ping sccm fqdn and I'm able to use net use to map a share. I have crawled every possible forum and posts and nothing seems to help, and I really feel like everything is correct and should be working. I hope to get some help from you experts. The clients I have tried to deploy to are a Dell Optiplex 7040 client and Vmware VMs. I downloaded all the necessary drivers for the Optiplex 7040 and the vmxnet3 driver for the VM which I injected into the WinPE x64 boot image. I also tried to PXE boot without any driver in the boot image. I created a user in AD named SCCM_NAA which has been used as the network access account. The firewall has been completely turned off on the SCCM server. Deployed task sequence to All unknown computers and a collection called Windows 10 Deployment containing PC02. SMSTS.log (included in post) - All clients always show the same three possible errors PxeGetPxeData failed with 0x80070005 RegOpenKeyExW is unsuccessful for Software\Microsoft\SMS\Task Sequence GetTsRegValue() is unsuccessful. 0x80070002. The guide I've been using to set everything up this one: www.windows-noob.com/forums/topic/14057-how-can-i-deploy-windows-10-with-mdt-2013-update-2-integrated-with-system-center-configuration-manager-current-branch/ Lab setup is as follows, all MSDN media: SCCM01 - SCCM Server 1702 - Server 2016 SQL01 - SQL Server for SCCM - SQL Server 2016 DC01 & DC02 - AD, DNS and DHCP set up with option 066 and 067 configured pointing to the SCCM server and SMSboot\x64\wdsnbp.com Dell OptiPlex 7040 - Client PC02 (VM) - Member of SCCM server as a client PC03 (VM) - Newly created VM with no OS, but has a virtual HDD attached Boot image and operating system image Task sequence smsts_PC02.log
  8. I'm trying to create a new .wim capture of an updated Windows 10 1709 (Hyper-V VM). I created capture media w/ SCCM, ran it on NewBuild18v2 (my VM), it reboots, say username and password are wrong and shows defaultuser0 as option - can’t log into it. Administrator is listed, takes password and then gets stuck at “Just a Moment”. was able to get a cmd window w/ F12 and entered this via regedit - [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OOBE]"SkipMachineOOBE"=dword:00000001 Thanks to Frank Maxwitat from TechNet. It was able to restart and login but left me w/ a broken machine - start button wouldn't work, right click on task bar won't work, run works but I'm still stuck. I took the .wim it saved to my share and placed it in my TS and get an error (0x80070400) element not found. I don't know if it's a bad unattended file, but I've included it and the STSMS log for those who read them better than I. Main question - is there a way to salvage the VM and do another sysprep and capture, or do I need to start over? Thanks in advance for the help! smsts.log unattend.xml
  9. Hello Windows Noob family! I am attempting to a very basic, nothing crazy refresh from windows 8.1 to windows 10 using SCCM with MDT. I am doing a user driven installation with the latest ADK installation. I create a standard User Driven task sequence. Under the capture user state step I have Capture all user profiles by using standard options selected, with verbose logging and Copy by using file system access - checked continue if some files cannot be captured and capture locally using hard links. Then under Restore User state I am using Restore all captured user profiles with standard options. When kicking off the task sequence from within the OS, I have no trouble managing the wizard... which reboots me into WinPE and begins the image. I watch it run the USMT package which "Processes the User State". When the image is done, the user profiles are not restored, altho - all the data is still there under C:\StateStore. I can browse through that folder and see all the user profiles that were backed up, and all the content is there. It just appears to be skipping, or failing? On the Loadstate portion... I cannot find any scanstate / loadstate logs - and the SMTS.log files don't appear to display any errors. Any thoughts from the gurus here? Thank you!
  10. Is it safe to import drivers for a newly acquired model while an osd task sequence might be running? I say might be running because our company is a global one and imaging of machines can be going on without my knowledge. Should I wait for our change management window to import new drivers for use in the OSD or is it safe to do so during business hours?
  11. Dear Experts, My Sincere thanks for your extended support and great mentorship with System Center Products I am trying to Perform the Build and Capture and Unable to do getting an error Very Shortly - We are planning to upgrade the Environment from SCCM 2012 SP2 to SCCM CB 1702 (Upgrade) and also Windows 7 SP1 to Windows 10 V1702 To perform the Windows 10 Deployment, trying to perform the Capture Image Wizard with limited sequence, but getting an error while installing SCCM Agent. Please do the needful. Console :SCCM 2012 SP2 Target OS : Windows 10 V1607 LTSB Earlier, tried with Windows 10 V1511, which also failed to install SCCM Agent and do not find the Site Code. Any advice pls. SMSTSLog.txt
  12. Hi, I'm testing an Upgrade TS to Win 10 1709. I tested 4 devices now. On devices, all was working fine. Update was successful. On other two devices, the OS upgrade was successful, but after the OS boots again the TS doesn't complete successfully. I have two batch files in the Post-Processing group which are not executed. One of them just creates a txt file so I know it did run actually. In Software Center, the TS has status "Installing..." and it keeps spinning like that for hours. The smsts.log files is also not updated anymore after the last reboot. So the Setup command executed successfully, device rebooted, did the OS upgrade successfully, and when booted to the OS the TS just stopped. New Windows 10 works perfectly fine though. I can install other apps via Software Center as well without issues. Anyone has an idea where to look? Due to this, the status of the deployment is also not reported back to CM. If 2 out of 4 devices have this problem, I guess it's not a good sign. Of course I'll do some more testing but this is definitely not a good sign.
  13. Hey Guys / Niall - I'm in a bind and need some suggestions, please... I'm currently in the middle of rebuilding our OSD task sequence from scratch to resolve a few issues. It's TS is fairly lengthy as it's MDT integrated and uses the UDI Wizard for customization of the build. One of the most used UDI features is the ability to select Applications & packages not installed by default for automated installation during the build. This has worked great in the past with Applications and Packages. The issue is that many of our applications are installed via task sequence & some are pretty lengthy. They are built as such due to their complexity and ability to support multiple locations (different steps are executed depending on the system's location), scenarios (Install, Repair, Upgrade), etc. It would be easy enough to copy / paste these steps into a folder in the OSD TS and have them tied to a UDI variable - but - when attempting to do so have found that it makes the task sequence too large and I get memory / handle errors when trying to save it. As a workaround, I did adjust specific settings in WMI on the Primary server as described here to the settings shown below (quadrupled values for first 3) plus the server is only using 27% of 16gb of RAM, but that didn't help. So - what is the most reliable way to install a task sequence during OSD (if any) I know that the latest version of SCCM includes this ability, but we are on 2012 R2 SP1 CU4 for the next 2 months. The only way I can think of is to pre-advertise the TS to collections OSD is advertised to then create and Application which executes a PowerShell script that initiates the desired TS similar to this post. I've used it before for the App Catalog, but it hasn't been that consistent and I haven't tried it with OSD yet. Surely, there's another workaround for this or way to safely be able to add more steps to OSD's TS. I'd appreciate any suggestions - Thank You!
  14. Helloy guys, I'm experiencing a very strange behaviour in SCCM OS deployment... my task sequence seems to work fine for all laptops, desktops, tablets etc. except for one laptop model (Deployment for Lenovo E570 - Win 7 OS). I assume that there is a driver issue ,but I simply can't solve it.. During the task sequence the join to the domain "fails". The log claims that no adapters are found. Funny thing is, that during the TS the drivers are installed and after the TS completes, the NIC is present in the device manager. So WTF!? All other models are working fine... I've removed the complete NIC drivers from the package and re-added them. And I added different driver versions. Even added the driver to the boot-image. No success... *UPDATE* I figured out that, after the driver has been installed the adapter is not loaded. When u open a cmd and run ipconfig only the WiFi adapter is present... HEEELP!!
  15. Hi, I've been having problems with an install for a looong time. I need to install the latest Salesforce plugin for outlook on my companies computer but many different versions are installed which I need to uninstall prior to installing the newer version.To do so, I have found a Powershell script that if I run from PS ISE works correctly however, if I do it from a task sequence it says it has run but it doesn't do anything.This is how I did it: Created a package with the .ps1 file with no program. Added a Run powershell script step where I invoke the package and specified the script name. After many troubleshooting I think it could have to do with the account the task sequence is executed.The PS script is the following: $uninstall32 = gci "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" | foreach { gp $_.PSPath } | ? { $_ -match "Salesforce*" } | select UninstallString $uninstall64 = gci "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" | foreach { gp $_.PSPath } | ? { $_ -match "Salesforce*" } | select UninstallString if ($uninstall64) { $uninstall64 = $uninstall64.UninstallString -Replace "msiexec.exe","" -Replace "/I","" -Replace "/X","" $uninstall64 = $uninstall64.Trim() Write "Uninstalling..." start-process "msiexec.exe" -arg "/X $uninstall64 /q" -Wait} if ($uninstall32) { $uninstall32 = $uninstall32.UninstallString -Replace "msiexec.exe","" -Replace "/I","" -Replace "/X","" $uninstall32 = $uninstall32.Trim() Write "Uninstalling..." start-process "msiexec.exe" -arg "/X $uninstall32 /q" -Wait} it should find the uninstall string for the app and execute it. Also, the app I'm trying to find is installed on the user profile, and if the uninstall string is run from another account it wont find it.... this is why I think it might have to do with the account
  16. Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone out there can assist. Sorry for the length post but my aim is to provide as much information as possible to eliminate any of the common gotchas. ConfigMgr is 1702 with latest Hotfix I've spent the better part of two weeks trying to figure out why OSD has all of a suddenly stopped working. It seems to have happened around the same we upgraded our last DC from server 2012 to 2016 (swing migration) and raised the domain fictional level from 2012 to 2016. From the many hours spent doing google kung fu, ConfigMrg should not have any issues working in 2016 etc. DNS, DHCP AD are all reporting healthy with the usual couple of things that we can ignore from the BPA (Best Practices Analyzer). How we do OSD: We exclusively image Unknown Computers and have done so for many years (Since 2012 R2). We do not image our machines using deployments to any other collection. We delete the computer from the SCCM DB when we need to re-image. This works well for us in our environment. :-) All Task Sequences are deployed to the Unknown Computer collection. We are using ADK 1703 (the most recent one with all bug fixes) and boot boot x86 and x64 boot images are distributed and enabled but we only use the x64 boot image. The issue: Machines can successfully PXE Boot into WinPE, all machines no matter make, model, physical or virtual) all get an IP address and we can ping the ConfigMrg server without any issues. Once a computer gets into WinPE the screen goes blank and the computer reboots straight away. Actions taken so far: Common gotchas I have checked: Checked the date and time are correct on the client Made sure to delete any unknown computers or any references to the machines I have been using for testing or imaging in general Thinking that it might possibly be a Boot Image/PXE related issue I followed a couple of very detailed guides online and removed the PXE role from the Distributions Points by: Unticking it from each DP, deleting the files in the Windows Temp folder, deleting the RemoteInstall folder, removing the Boot images from DP's, the usual reboots, checking logs, re-enabling the PXE roll on DP's rebuilding the Boot images, deploying the boot images, enabling the both x86 and x64 boot images, making sure that my Task Sequences were referencing the newly created boot images. I then booted a machine up (in this case a test VM) and pressed F8, I ran cmtrace and opened up X:Windows\Temp\SMSTSLog\smsts.log. Then I found this error message: There are no task sequences available to this computer.. Please ensure you have at least one task sequence advertised to this computer. Unspecified error (Error: 80004005; Source: Windows) TSPxe 12/07/2017 12:28:40 PM 1284 (0x0504) So I thought perhaps my Task Sequence deployments themselves might have some issue on the DP's. I tried redeploying the task sequences and creating a brad new Task Sequence to test and I still got the same error. I checked the boundary groups and Active Directory Sites and Services and everything looks fine. I tried initiating a discovery of everything possible. Here is an example screen capture video of the issue we are experiencing: Looking forward to any comments below!
  17. Hi All, Is it possible to get the save path in the capture & build task sequence?
  18. Hi, I'm struggling to find a definative answer to a question. Is it possible to rebuild a machine via an OSD task sequence within SCCM 2012 R2? Is SCCM working correctly in that if I have previously built a machine via a task sequence, then try to rebuild that machine it does not see that same task sequence and therefore will not be able to be rebuilt? I have a sequence deployed to all unknown computers. The 1st time it builds fine, if I then try to rebuild, it will not see the task sequence. I am assuming as it's no longer an unknown computer. Part of the sequence places the computer in a specified OU, it seems that sometimes it will see the sequence, sometimes it will not. I am using a usb build key with not pxe boot server. Is it expected behaviour that you should delete the computer from SCCM and then rebuild, is there a work around to allow support staff who don't have access to SCCM to rebuild machines? Any help appreciated.
  19. Morning All, I have a Windows 10 Task Sequence for a standalone laptop which I need to encrypt with Bitlocker as part of the OSD build. The machine encrypts with bitlocker fine but I cannot find a way to export the recovery key either to a network share (with appropriate credentials) or the local disk (to then backup from the device) during the task sequence. Wondering if anyone has managed to get this working or if has to remain a manual step, i'd appreciate any help/advice? thanks in advance,
  20. Strange issue I cannot find any posts about. I deleted some obsolete driver packages, then the drivers, and then the data files and they still appear in the Task Sequence deployment. Tried a few different script out there to delete driver packages and the did not see them either. Restarts and no success in removing them from the TS Deployment. Server: Windows 2012 R2 SCCM CB 1702, WADK 10.1.15063, MDT 6.3.8443.1000, and SQL 2014 in 2012 mode Thank you.
  21. Hey guys Got a new machine, to image. Imported all the drivers as usual, and the network driver was already in the boot image from an earlier model that uses the exacy same network driver. ( already double checked this to ) Turned off secure boot in the Bios, and attempted to pxe boot into the Task Sequence window. The machine reboots right before it manages to bring up the task sequence window. Looking at the smsts.log it display the error in the subject of this post Did a F8 before it rebooted the second time round and issuing an ipconfig shows no IP address. It just displays Windows Ip Configuration. The network drivers are in the boot image so not sure what else to do here? The machine is a Lenovo M910z (10NU)
  22. Hello, I'm having a weird issue with the HP 1030 G2 x360 laptop\convertible. When I tried to image it ,my TS failed to detect it as a Laptop, it turned out that it has a new chassis type 31. So I added the chassis type to the ztigather.wsf, however it still didn't detect the chassis type. If objInstance.ChassisTypes(0) = 12 or objInstance.ChassisTypes(0) = 21 then ' Ignore docking stations Else If not IsNull(objInstance.SMBIOSAssetTag) then sAssetTag = Trim(objInstance.SMBIOSAssetTag) End if Select Case objInstance.ChassisTypes(0) Case "8", "10", "11", "12", "14", "18", "21", "31" bIsLaptop = true Case "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "15", "16" bIsDesktop = true Case "9" bIsTablet = true Case "23" bIsServer = true Case Else ' Do nothing End Select End if
  23. Hello everyone! I have a few ready-to-deploy OS Task Sequences. They were tested and successfully deployed via SCCM (v.1606) already. And now I have the task to prepare these "OSD-TS"s for installation from USB drive. So the question is: do I have to create new TS, pointing the output to stand-alone media (the very beginning of "New TS Media" Wizard) or there is more quick way like just copy existing TS and "redirect" it's output to stand-alone media? Maybe some kind of PS script can help me? Thank you in advance.
  24. Hi All, Hope you are all well, and sccm'ing away on the CBB I have been asked to look into a standalone task sequence from usb, which will include the djoin steps for a offline domain join. I went thru the djoin provision steps etc process manually in a lab, and got a fresh build win10 box to join the domain. but cannot seem to get this to work with vanilla sccm cbb. I have read articles that mdt has a specific step for this, but I'm not sure the boss wants mdt in place ?? Anyone got experience of a way to get this to work ? Regards, Wazzie
  25. Hi guys, I am having an issue deploying a "Required" Task Sequence to our Thin Devices. The devices in question are HP T630's and they have a Unified Write Filter. I am trying to rebuild them using a task sequence which is set to required. The collection where the device resides has a maintenance window set and the deployment has the "Commit changes at deadline or during a maintenance window (requires restarts)" checked. When the maintenance window starts, the device will start a countdown and reboot and go into maintenance mode so the UWF gets disabled, but then nothing happens. If I login with a local admin account and start software center, i can see the Operating System that I am attempting to deploy but it says available rather than required. After a period of time the device will reboot itself again and go back into production mode. If i boot the device off standalone media the task sequence starts immediately which makes me think its something with the config manager client on the device Any help would be appreciated as I am at a bit of a loss. thanks, James
