  1. Not sure how to even search for this, and trying to set up a computer association isn't doing anything (seriously seems to be limited strictly to user state data). And I need to be able to set this up for computer names that have yet to be created. Is there a way to quickly make computer objects with just a name and collection membership? When we deploy windows to the new machines, they all need different software installed and rely upon collection membership to provide the right packages. If this is not something that can be done, how do you all deal with a new batch
  2. I have a requirement to create 2 collections from AD groups and return only the users/machines that are in both. I have tried something like the following:- SELECT ... WHERE ResourceID IN (SELECT ResourceID FROM SMS_R_User where SMS_R_User.SecurityGroupName = <GroupA>) AND ResourceID IN (SELECT ResourceID FROM SMS_R_User where SMS_R_User.SecurityGroupName = <GroupB>) But if a user is in both groups the result is 0 not the expected result e.g Collection from ADGroup1 = 12345 Collection from ADGroup2 = 34567 Collecti
  3. How can you quickly figure out what collections are associated with a Computer? I am trying to figure out what policies are being given higher priority by viewing what collections they are associated with. Does anyone know how to find this information?
  4. Hi, Can anyone help me to create a collection for all the machines with a particular file (nlwnsck.dll) in a specific path (c:\Windows\System\) Thank you,
  5. Hi everyone, I wonder if someone could help me. In my corporate environment, we have collections setup for deployments that our Service Desk use to build machines. The idea is that machines are created or added into that Collection, and the Task Sequence is also deployed to the Collection. We have upgraded to SCCM 1702 in recent times and ntoiced that we cannot always import machines to the collection - we get an error code, like 2152205056. I just looked at: So will test that out tomorrow when I am back in the office. The other issue I am having is; when w
  6. Hello everyone! Some years ago I was looking for a script to create collections in SCCM based on AD OUs. I've found some of them, but they seemed a bit complex and incomprehensible to me. So I've wrote my own rather simple script, added a few options that I think would be in hand for SCCM admin and added a lot of comments to make the script easy to understand and modify. So I present it to your judge. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated. <# Crafted by Maestro, 17/03/2017 The purposes of this script: 1. Create device collections in SCCM based on AD. Assign Canoni
  7. Hello all, Ever since I've upgraded our environment to 2012 R2 SP1 (5.0.8239.1000), my admin console has been acting goofy when I pull up collections, apps/packages, driver packages...etc. Anything with user created folders. I have folders under "Device Collections" to make things more organized. Apps/Packages, Driver Packages...etc follow suit. Basically, no matter what folder I click, I get the full list of collections as if I was clicking "Device Collections". Not just the ones that are under that particular folder. Same result in other areas. If I click back and forth enough, I
  8. I have a working query (Membership Rule) that gathers computers into a collection based on computer name. I also have a working query that gathers by OS (in this example we will use Windows 7). I have been trying to get the two combined into one query (basically an "and" statement instead of creating two separate membership rules, which apparently is an "or" statement). I readily admit that building queries is not my strongpoint, and I don't even know if this is the proper way to go about it, but I have been tinkering with it quite a bit. Here are the two queries...I know that
  9. I have built a collection with no clients assigned and have a task sequence deployed to the collection to re-image the clients that are placed in. I have followed the steps to create the script and status filter rule. In my case it does not work, and I don't know why. I followed the instructions to the letter and even went through them several times. What am I missing? Does the task sequence have to be a MDT, at what point does the status rules run, or does when does the task sequence report back the success code? The machines work fine and I did have to change the deployment rule to only re-r
  10. Hi we've a large number of devices with a few PCI and PCIe devices installed, not in the same slots. would like to push out a configuration script, the settings of which, for long-winded reasons or prerequisites, depends on how many, and which, slots are in use. the solution to this would therefore be query based collections and separate packages containing the variables and then deployment en masse allowing configuration to be tailored to the hardware. -hopefully avoiding the months of work which would be a manual visual audit and inspection and then collation into collections. NOTE:
  11. Hi all, I've been reading articles an topics here that already helped me a lot, but i'm very new here as a members. I'll need your help to set my mind about Active directory group based collections in SCCM 2007. My configuration: Both "AD System Group discovery" and "AD Security Group discovery" are enabled with the polling schedule set to occur once a day. Active Directory group based collection are also set to update once a day. and dynamic update i activated. My problem: Sometimes it take a very long time to see a computer added to an AD group, appear in the appropr
  12. Here's one for you. I have some Windows XP PC's that dual boot between two partitions. One is commonly used and the other not. The countdown to select the more commonly used partition ( default ) sits at 999seconds. Like using the right click tools on a collection in sccm 2012, does anybody know of a way I could WOL then wait 20 seconds and send a signal 'return' key to select the default partition and start booting. Any help would be greatly appreciated. W
  13. Hi! I ran a AD System Discovery when I first set up SCCM 2012, and all the computer accounts in AD has been listed in the 'All Systems' collection as intended. The only issue here is, almost 2000 of these computer objects are objects that hasn't been active or been in contact with a Domain Controller for the last 180 days. Yesterday, I started a cleaning process in AD, so the old computer objects in AD has now been disabled. Is there any possibility for me to clean the 'All Computers' collection and get rid of the disabled computer objects? Any help is highly appreciated :-)
  14. Hello All We are having an issue with our new SCCM Environment. SCCM was happily working, Deploying OS's, Installing and Uninstalling applications and the other day just stopped Uninstalling applications. It will install but wont remove. We are SCCM 2012 SP1 installed on Server 2008R2 we have a Standalone site and our Collections are populated via Querying AD Groups. Our Install and Uninstall Collections are updating and when we check the deployments within properties on the Device it shows the relevant 'Install' or 'Removal' for the required application. What we have noticed is:
  15. Need help building a Device collection for Machines that have AHCI enabled in the SATA operation in the BIOS Settings. Thanks Garrett
  16. Hey When i redeploy a system, I have to wait for all the applications to be install after the TS has completed. Is there a way to get the task seqence to install software based on collections, without making an individual install step for all applications, that tests for collections membership ?
  17. Is it possible to build a colllection off of machines that failed a deployment?
  18. We have a pretty basic SCCM 2012 setup for now with a single primary site with AD intergration. Things are working great but we are at the point where we would like to begin implementing security for the rest of the IT staff. I'm hoping that someone can help me with an issue that I'm having or suggest a better way of doing things. I'm new to the SCCM world and am learning as I go so if you need to ask any additional questions, please ask away. Basically, we are implementing device collections based on software needs. So if a computer requires MS Project, we have a collection to which that
  19. Hey guys, After setting up a new domain and deploying SCCM 2012 I came to realize how much work it actually is to set up new applications. I have made a script which creates AD groups and Collections. I still create the Applications manually because they usually differ when it comes to how they need to be set up. Some products can be imported as Applications (MSI etc) while some (Autodesk products in particular) need to be set up as Packages. Here's a link to the script. http://heineborn.com/tech/powershell-create-collections-and-ad-groups/ Enjoy!
  20. So, I've ran into a bit of a conundrum. I have a large amount of domin-joined devices populated and organized in AD. I want to break them up for specific software deployments by further separating them using Device Collections in SCCM 2012. I use System Resource > System OU Name to break them down into generalized collections, but often times need to break them down further by either excluding nested OU's or only including devices with specific naming strings. My conundrum is this: When creating a query that only lists machines with a specific name string I get no results listed in the
  21. Imagine that you add a new computer to the "Deploy W7" Collection, but also want to add it to 2 different optional business app OUs. This PC also needs App X and App Y. Apps. X & Y are optional apps. Is there a way to ensure that during the TS, it looks at the collection membership and realises that it needs to also install apps. X & Y and force them to be installed, not wait until the collection policies are parsed?
  22. A few questions on maintenance windows for SCCM 2007 collections. I have created a Parent collection that finds all of the servers I need to work with. I then have created child collections that feed off of the parent and split them based on other selections like so. Servers I Manage - (Parent) Domain Controllers - (Child)Windows 2008 - (Child)Windows 2003 - (Child)SQL Servers - (Child)Misc Servers - (Child) Now, if I set a maintenance window on the Parent Collection (Servers I Manager) and then deploy a package or update to the Child Collection (Windows 2008). The server that resides
