  1. Hi, I'm trying to deploy Windows 8.1 x64, but my task sequence fails with Error 80070032 – Failed to make volume bootable or The request is not supported. Background: I have two disks in my machine, im trying to deploy to my MSATA disk. I consider my MSATA disk as primary disk since it's faster than the sata and a bit smaller. The issue is that my Lenovo L430 is recognizing MSATA interface as DISK 1. So using the wizard in SCCM 2012 R2 to create an task sequence called "Install an existing image pack.", i setup an brand new task sequence. In the Format and Partition step i choose Di
  2. Hi all, I have looked all over the Internet and found people with the exact same problem, but I can't seem to fix this issue with the suggested solutions. Suddenly PXE boot stopped working. It worked for a couple of months. No changes have been made on SCCM, Firewall or DHCP but PXE suddenly stopped working. Error message (also see attached file): Your PC needs to be repaired The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors. File: \boot\bcd Error code: 0x000000f You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you... Our situation:
  3. Hey all, All of a sudden our SCCM 2012 R2 (Patched up to date) is having issues. When we PXE boot we get to the stage in the OSD where we have to enter our password for task sequences. As soon as we enter the password the task sequence fails (Before presenting a list of available tasks). I can't see anything interesting in the smspxe log on the server so I have looked at the SMSTS log on the clients. It is suggesting issues getting client identity along with some communication issues affecting time and information about the client. I have tried rebooting the SCCM server but that has not fi
  4. Hi Experts, We are currently implementing SCCM Current Branch 1702 afresh for one of our customers replacing BMC Marimba, and it was only a week back that we were informed about another existing installation of SCCM in one of the regions. They are using SCCM 2012 SP2.for managing patching for both server and desktop endpoints, with one Primary site and 8 distribution points. Now in our current implementation, we are looking to manage approximately 10000 endpoints and 1500 servers via a standalone Primary with additional management server and multiple secondaries in remote locations and dist
  5. Microsoft explains that an in-place OS upgrade from Server 2012 to Server 2012 R2 is supported (let's make that clear before someone pulls out the backup / reinstall / site recover copypasta, ok?) for a site server running Config Manager 2012 R2 SP1. So, I did just that, and after wrangling with some problems with WSUS, the site server is working as intended. Yes, even WSUS is working properly; I had to fix some site binding problems and edit the web.config to support Windows 10 clients, but that was it. I had to do the in-place upgrade because WSUS 3 broke after a recent Windows 10 update, an
  6. My environment; Running SCCM 2012 R2 on 2012 R2 server DC Server 2012 R2 All running on VM's on Windows 8 hyper-v When doing any deployment now OSD deployment fails on "preparing network connections" ?I have recently upgraded all my lab to 2012 R2 servers and SCCM 2012 R2 I have built from scratch again.My deployments did work ok when it was all server 2012/sccm 2012 sp1 .I was thinking possibly need some sort of network drivers in the boot image - but my lab is all on a windows 8 hyper-v vm's and did not need to inject driver packages when it was the previous svr 2012/sccm 2012 S
  7. I am seeing an issue on Server 2012 R2 Clients that are reporting ‘Compliant’ in SCCM against a Windows Update Deployment but when I look on the server I am not seeing the KBs in the deployment installed under ‘Installed Updates’. On the 2008 R2 servers everything is installing properly. Below is a screenshot showing nothing installed on Server for some time. But yet this server is complaint against all Monthly deployments in SCCM. I am still digging into the SCCM and Windows Update logs. Wondering if anyone has come across this issue.
  8. I'm having an issue where my Windows 10 task sequence loses it's DNS servers right after the "Setup Windows and Configuration manager" Step reboot. Steps taken so far: - Downloaded all network drivers for this pc model and added them to Driver package and boot image. - Ran "ipconfig /all" and it returned good IP and correct DNS servers during winpe pxe boot - After " Setup Windows and Configuration manager" step reboot I ran "ipconfig /all" again and the dns server IPs have been changed to older (decommissioned) DNS IPs. Can no longer ping MP FQDN. (I can manually change th
  9. Hi, Simple question really. Whats the best practice when structuring windows client updates? Do people auto apply to test machines and then auto apply to all machines a couple of weeks after.
  10. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I've come across a problem which Im struggling to get past. We have an sccm distribution point which has PXE enabled. Whenever a machine tries to PXE for some reason WDS just doesn't respond. Eventually it just times out. Where shall I begin :S any help would be awesome.
  11. I'm trying to install DCIS 4.2 on my computer with System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 console installed. The installer runs until it gets to "Importing Custom Dell Reboot Package" and then goes right into "Rolling Back Option". I've tried this on a system with the SCCM Console installed fresh in case there was an issue with the original system's install with the same result. Has anyone run across this? Do I need to upgrade my DCIS version the actual management point server first? Thanks in advance. Ryan
  12. Hey Everyone! Another day and another problem with SCCM! Currently I am experiencing Hash value mismatches with numerous packages, it is very intermittent...One day it will be the main OS .wim and the next it will be a driver package. After a lot of reading it has been suggested that re-validating or re-distributing the effected files to the DP fixes the issue after a couple of hours, this has worked once or twice but isn't a permanent solution and sometimes it doesn't work which is a massive waste of production when you have to wait 2 hours before you find out. One powershell command
  13. Hi, I'm new here and also to SCCM. My objective is to provide a clean standardized source of software product information that can be loaded into a Configuration Management Database (CMDB). More specifically I'm looking to collect, and automatically maintain the following information: For each licensed software item, i.e. a product / version / edition that may be purchased e.g. Microsoft Visio 2013 Standard, I need a Standardized Publisher Name, Standardized Product Name and Standardized Version. The latest revision - this might include a build / patch number and more specific version e.
  14. Trying to import the Surface Pro 3 drivers into SCCM 2012 R2. The process completes however the import wizards gives the error below: Error: Some driver package(s) are updated on distribution points successfully. But some are not. Errors Surface Pro 3 - The SMS Provider reported an error. This also results in the source directory being empty. DriverCatalog.log shows a number of successful imports with a “Successfully initialized driver digest.” Testing in home SCCM 2012 R2 lab with Windows Server 2008 R2 and the same driver package imports successfully with files in the pack
  15. Hi, We have around 500 machines deployed across multiple sites which we have noticed that around 60% of these are now showing inactive. As a comparison, I have found 2 machines, one active, one inactive, both from the same site in the same boundary, to try and figure out why they may be inactive. I Have attached multiple logs for both machines, does anyone have any insight into what may be causing this? We are currently running on 2012 R2 SP1. server 2012 R2 Any other suggestions on where to begin to look or if there are any other server/client logs to go through, would be grea
  16. Consider the following: The BIOS date & time are correct Date & time remain correct up until the Task Sequence selection screen Once a Task Sequence is selected, the date & time are updated to the built-in WinPE timezone, thus making it the incorrect time. Is this normal and expected behavior?
  17. Is it possible to get application deployment status using powershell. I read couple of articles which suggest running SQL query but i am looking for something like WMI that can connect to SCCM and pull information like success, in progress, error and unknown status. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hello all! I've been trying to deploy Windows 7 64-bit to our new HP EliteDesk 800 65W G2 Desktop Mini PC. All goes OK up to apply operating system step (error occurs at the end of apply OS step). After downloading and applying OS.wim to C-drive, i get following errors to smsts.log: _________________________________________________________________________ Failed to save environment to (80070057) TSManager 28.1.2016 12:08:23 1348 (0x0544) Failed to save the current environment block.

  19. I am dealing with a really weird issue. We have two environments one is SCCM 2007, and we just stood up the SCCM 2012 R2 environment to transfer over. I am trying to transition the clients over subnet by subnet using the client push install. SOme installs go without issue. But a good number of installs fail with a 1603 error. I know that the 1603 error is a generic error, so I was able to go through the Client.msi.log to find this error. "[10:25:19] ERROR: ITaskService::Connect failed with error 0x8007045a". This error is not in a successful deployment, and unfortunately no where in th
  20. Howdy! Slightly new to SCCM and have been given the task to enable Bitlocker on a bunch of imaged Win7 Laptops, HP with TPM disabled. Have already found the biosconfigutil for HP devices and the config files that ill need to enable TPM however was not too sure where to go from there? Is it possible to simply create a separate Task Sequence and deploy that to the device collection? Cheers, GHaMNoob

  22. Hello, I have been working on upgrading the operating system for our SCCM server from 2008 R2 to 2012 R2. I recovered the site from a site system backup through the Configuration Manager Installation wizard. My SCCM databases are on a separate server and upon installing WSUS I had the database stored on it. I have also confirmed that the database is in SQL. Since the recovery, I am unable to synchronize software updates. In the wsyncmgr.log it lists all of my distribution points with "DB Server not detected for SUP SERVER NAME.domain from SCF File, skipping." My primary site and DB server
  23. Hi Guys, Our company has 32 sites across the UK, and a data centre where our SCCM 2012 R2 server sits. We don't want to put servers back into the sites, so I was wondering can you or has anyone used NAS devices as distribution points? I know you can use branch cache for application deployment, but what about OS deployment, as the WIM files can be massive! Our WAN's aren't the best in the world so OS deployments will take an age, so was wondering if this is possible? Cheers Res
  24. Current Scenario We have a Primary standalone SCCM 2012 site in a single Domain hosting multiple location with the connectivity to MP & DP’s, we have SQL installed on same site server. Usage: Software Distribution, Software Update, Reporting. We do not use it for Image Management. Requiring: If the current site server connectivity is broken and takes long time to recover because of any reason. We are looking to host another SCCM server to leverage all our tasks during that disaster recovery plane. Plans: Is it good idea to build another SCCM standalone site with in a single domain with
  25. Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone might be able to shed some light on the whole pxe boot process. I don't completely understand how it works and now we are having an issue with our workstations not pulling an image. It would certainly be in my best interest to understand all this. We are running SCCM 2012 R2 and only use it for imaging workstations and servers via pxe, for now. Here's what's going on, we pxe boot a device, it grabs the boot.wim file and downloads it successfully. After it's downloaded WinPE starts loading (we can see our custom background), and the task sequence is su
