  1. After I installed the Configuration Manager 2111 Hotfix on the server, several people are no longer to run the Configuration Management Console. They get the message "The Configuration Manager Console cannot connect to the Configuration Manager site database. Verify the following" However I am able to run the console from the server and my PC.
  2. Hello, we have a test environment and a productive environment. In the test environment we could install and configure an end point protection manager. In the production environment we get errors as these: Cannot find path for destination inbox Notification Manager on server REGISTRY. The current component is possibly not installed. Cannot connect to the inbox source, sleep 30 seconds and try again. [Software Inventory Processor (Site Trusted)] cannot update environment so skiping outbox processing. Cannot find path for destination inbox Distribution Manager (incoming) on server registry. ~~ same goes for: Software Metering Processor Usage (Site), Success Policy Requests / Discovery Data Manager, etc. [Notification Manager] cannot update environment so skiping outbox processing. [Distribution Manager (Incoming)] halting execution. Remote site is in pull-mode. Coult not read registy key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\SMS\MPFDM\INboxes\ on the server. The operating system reported error 2: cannot find the file We have no clue how to resolve this. We opened a case with MS, but so far nothing. It seems during the installation stuff from the new epp-server should be pushed onto the siteserver (and stuff should also be written in the registry of the site server,) but this fails. The SiteServer is admin on the new Site System (we tried to install using the site servers computer account as well as the install service account - both failed). The service RemoteRegistry runs on both systems. Thank you for ideas. Sincerely Andreas
  3. Hi all, I have an error that has plagued me since, I think, upgrading to SCCM 2012 R2. I have a handful of OSD's which I have setup and generally, they all exhibit the same issue at seemingly random times. I could have multiple machines on my bench all using the same OSD and a couple of them will hang during the installation of applications. So, it installs the Windows image, sets up the CCM client, reboots and finishes the client install and then starts installing applications. When it hits about the third or fourth application it just sits there and does nothing for as long as the machine stays on (no error). It seems to be something that happens after a fixed amount of time (not sure how long), probably ~10 minutes after the last reboot. It makes no difference how I order the apps to install. I've sorted the log list by date and time to try and find an error somewhere but I can't see anything. The really frustrating thing is, if I have a machine that is failing it will usually keep failing repetitively but then suddenly it might start working and completed the TS all the way through. Can anyone give me any advice as to what logs I should keep a closer eye on (client/server) or if anyone has heard of anything similar. It's really frustrating when you have hundreds of machines to do! Sorry if I'm a bit light on info, I'm not sure what to provide as I'm still learning! Cheers!
  4. This series is comprised of different parts, listed below. Part 1 - Introduction and server setup (this part) Part 2 - Install and do initial configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 3 - Prepare the HTTP Web server for CDP and AIA Publication Part 4 - Post configuration on the Standalone Offline Root CA Part 5 - Installing the Enterprise Issuing CA Part 6 - Perform post installation tasks on the Issuing CA Part 7 - Install and configure the OCSP Responder role service Part 8 - Configure AutoEnroll and Verify PKI health Introduction Security is everywhere, and a core component of security is certificates. Public key infrastructure (PKI) is a set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption (1). In this series of guides I will show you how to set up a 2 tier PKI hierarchy running on Windows Server 2016 and you can use this to set up your own LAB so that you can learn about PKI and later use it for related System Center Configuration Manager roles such as Co-Management (3). Note: I don't claim to be an expert on PKI and would absolutely advise you to consult with a PKI expert if you plan on setting up PKI in production. This guide is designed to help you setup your LAB, it's based on a Windows Server 2012 R2 PKI guide on Technet from here and kudos to those guys for writing it (2). The difference here is you'll be using Windows Server 2016 and you'll see more screenshots and hints to guide you through the experience. I'd highly recommend you go through this entire series at least twice, just to get a feel for how PKI works and to become familiar with the terms involved. The first time you complete this series will probably feel laborious, however the second time you do it things will start to make sense and you'll have a better understanding of why you are doing it. This series will be tough to wrap your head around especially if you are new to PKI, but take it one part at a time, one step at a time, methodically. If in any doubt, about any of the content then please ask your questions here by starting a new thread. By the end of this series of guides you'll have the following setup and running in your windowsnoob.lab.local PKI LAB. Domain Controller (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.1 Issuing CA (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.2 Webserver (Windows Server 2016) - 192.168.11.3 Offline Root CA (Windows Server 2016) Windows 10 (Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1803) - 192.168.11.4 (Optional) Smoothwall NAT (linux) - 192.168.11.199 and MMC based applications like this screenshot from the Enterprise Issuing CA will become familiar to you Before we start the series let's list some of the terms you'll see popping up over and over. I will try to explain them as we move through the guide. PKI - Public Key Infrastructure AIA - Authority Information Access CDP - Certificate revocation list Distribution Point CRL - Certificate Revocation List OCSP - Online certificate status protocol CA - Certificate Authority Note: I'd recommend that you snapshot (checkpoint) the Virtual Machines at the end of each part of this series, so if you make a mistake, you can always back track to a known good state. Step 1. Create the Virtual Machines I use Hyper-V for my labs, as it's a role built into Windows Server 2016 (and even Windows 10), so as long as your computer is relatively new and the hardware supports virtualization, you can use it (simply enable the role, reboot, and start using it). You should have at least 16GB of ram and 500GB of SSD storage to set this lab up comfortably. To quickly create the virtual machines I use a PowerShell script which I wrote, you can download it here. Download the script - Create HyperV VMv2.ps1 Virtual Machine Names For this LAB, please use the following naming convention for your virtual machines (note this is not the computer name but the virtual machine name). #11_DC01 #11_IssuingCA #11_RootCA #11_W10_1803 #11_Webserver #11_Smoothwall Note: The #11 prefix is simply a method I use in Hyper-V to separate my labs visually in Hyper-v manager, so #11 is one lab, and #10 is another (and so on). You don't have to use the same convention as I do, but it would make it easier for you to follow the entire series. I use the Smoothwall linux based NAT to provide Port Forwarding capability and to share internet into my various LABs. Virtual Machine Roles The Virtual Machines created will have the following functions #11_DC01 Roles: DC, DNS, LDAP CDP,AIA #11_IssuingCA Roles: Enterprise Issuing CA #11_RootCA Roles: Standalone Offline Root CA #11_W10_1803 Roles: A Windows client #11_Webserver Roles: Webserver HTTP CDP, AIA #11_Smoothwall Roles: Port Forward, Internet sharing Note: When prompted for a network switch, create a unique one (#11) for the first VM created, and use the same one for each of the other vm's (we will remove the network from the Offline Root CA). For generation type, use Gen 2. Below is how I created the virtual machines listed above. Note: After creating the virtual machines and before installing Windows Server 2016 on the Offline Root CA, you must remove the Network Card for the Offline Root CA virtual machine as it should not be connected to any network. Step 2. Install the virtual machines Install Server 2016 On DC01, RootCA, IssuingCA and Webserver, install Windows Server 2016. It's up to you how to do this, you can use an Automated MDT PowerShell script, or install them manually. To install all Windows Server 2016 on all 4 servers as WorkGroup joined computers do as follows.. Choose Windows Server 2016 Standard (Desktop Experience) Continue through the installation wizard until prompted for a password, use P@ssw0rd as the Administrator password Click Finish. And then logon using the Administrator username and password configured above. Once Windows is installed, set the IP address for each virtual machine as shown below. Note: Below are the Computer Name and IP addresses used in this guide. For the Offline Root CA, you must remove the Network card in the Hyper-V virtual machine settings. Computer Name: DC01, IP address: 192.168.11.1, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: IssuingCA, IP address: 192.168.11.2, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: Webserver, IP address: 192.168.11.3, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: RootCA, IP: <NO NETWORK> Computer Name: W101803, IP address: 192.168.11.4, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway: 192.168.11.199, Preferred DNS server: 192.168.11.1 Computer Name: smoothwall11, IP address: (Green, static) 192.168.11.199 (Red, DHCP internet IP) x.x.x.x Here's how you can set the IP address for DC01. And configure the Computer Name as per the list (in this example it's for the Domain Controller) Reboot when prompted. Install Windows 10 Enterprise version 1803 Install Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1803 on the remaining virtual machine (#11_W10_1803). Configure the Computer Name and IP address as specified. Leave it WorkGroup joined. Optionally install Smoothwall To learn how to setup Smoothwall express as a firewall see this blog post. Step 3. Configure ADDS on DC01 Now that you've installed the servers, it's time to make DC01 a domain controller, to do that we'll install Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) and to do that we'll use this PowerShell script, simply run the script as Administrator in Windows PowerShell ISE on DC01. Download the script -Configure ADDS.ps1 After running the script, DC01 is prompted to a Domain Controller and is ready for the next part of this series. Note: Please only run this script on the DC01 virtual machine. After running the script, the Domain Controller is ready for Part 2 (configured as dc01.windowsnoob.lab.local) and internet is working (via the Smoothwall) To continue with Part 2 of this series, click here.

  5. I am trying to setup a test sccm server running the tech preview with a site code of TP1 in the same domain as my main lab sccm server with a site code of RYK. When I install the client on a windows 10 pc from the TP1 sccm console after a while it will be assigned to the RYK site. My boundaries for site RYK are setup as such: 10.0.0.2-10.0.0.99 (clients) 10.10.0.20-10.10.0.24 (servers a) 10.10.0.26-10.10.0.99 (servers b) so here i am excluding the IP of 10.10.0.25 which is the TP1 site server. My boundary group for my main RYK site is called production and it contains the three boundaries listed above. I do have another boundary which is my AD site but there are no site systems in it and its not a member of any boundary groups, My boundaries for site TP1 are setup as such: 10.0.0.200-10.0.0.210 (test clients) 10.10.0.25-10.10.0.25 (cm02 TP1 server) this site server also has a boundary which is my AD site the same as above and it also does not contain any members or is a member of any boundary groups VM-PC08 has an manual ip of 10.0.0.201 and is joined to the home.local domain, both site servers RYK (10.10.0.24) and TP1 (10.10.0.25) are members of the home.local domain as well. How can i run a production version of sccm along side a test tech preview version of sccm and have my clients assigned to the correct site. when I installed the client on vm-pc08 initially it was assigned to TP1 but after a while it moved to RYK. As you can see my boundaries and groups don't overlap so in theory that shouldn't be an issue but what am i missing? Client push is disabled on both sites. My clients get installed via a OSD TS on the RYK site and manually from the console in TP1
  6. I recently removed HP MIK and some client settings it's created which weren't deployed and ever since i've been getting the below errors every 30 minutes. I wonder if anyone else has had this and if they have a resolution to the problem? I saw a post on redit where someone just ignored the error as after 100 reports sccm stops trying to delete the record. SMS_OBJECT_REPLICATION_MANAGER 620 Errors Microsoft SQL Server reported SQL message 547, severity 16: [23000][547][Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0][SQL Server]The DELETE statement conflicted with the REFERENCE constraint "DataItem_ActionID_FK".

  7. Gents, We are currently facing Sync issues between our site server and our 2 SUPs (separated servers). After some investigation we noticed that the site server wants to tell one of our SUP to start a synchronization but nothing is happening on the SUP side because of an access denied when the site server wants to connect to the SUP on port 8531. This error does not happen all the time ... The system wide proxy is configured to bypass the local range where the site server and the SUPs are located. We already cleaned up our WSUS. I think I have similar issue in WCM.log : Do you have an idea ?
  8. Introduction On Windows 10 version 1607 and earlier during Windows 10 upgrades from one version to another, after the computer reboots to upgrade the operating system you'll see a screen similar to the below At this point you could press Shift and F10 to bring up a command prompt, which is extremely useful if you need to check a log file, verify driver installation or to do troubleshooting. The screenshot below is from Windows 10 version 1607 which was being upgraded from Windows 10 version 1511. Security changes everything However there's a downside to this, having the ability to open a command prompt in the wrong hands could mean elevation of privileges or data theft. We all know that security is a big focus with Microsoft and as a direct result of the concerns above, the diagnostic prompt ability was disabled by default in Windows 10 version 1703 and later. That's all well and good for Joe public, but what about the SCCM admin who is trying to debug a task sequence ? Fear not, help is at hand. To re-enable the Diagnostic command prompt (Shift F10 during Windows setup in an upgrade scenario) you need to modify your task sequence to set a variable, and that variable is called OSDSetupAdditionalUpgradeOptions which is described here. This variable allows us to pass command line options to Windows setup during the upgrade and that's how we'll re-enable the diagnostic command prompt, however we don't want it available to everyone, except those 'in the know', aka the SCCM admins who need more info while troubleshooting. Step 1. Set a task sequence variable To make this work you need to add a Set Task Sequence Variable step before the Upgrade Operating system step in the Upgrade Task Sequence, like so. Task Sequence Variable: OSDSetupAdditionalUpgradeOptions Value: /DiagnosticPrompt enable Step 2. Add Options to limit exposure (optional) To limit the exposure of this diagnostic command prompt to only you (or your admins), you can add an option on the step to check for a file, reg key, variable or something that works for you, in this example, you'll look for the presence of a file on C:\ called windowsnoob.txt. Note: As stated, you can use whatever method you wish to limit exposure, Mike Terril has a nice blogpost on using collection variables to achieve something similar here. Step 3. Test it ! That's it, apply the changes and optionally create a file called windowsnoob.txt on C:\ on a computer you intend to test this on. Here's the file, created by the SCCM admin who plans on troubleshooting an Upgrade. Starting the upgrade... Before the reboot you can see the check for the file presence step is here, and as the file was present, the set task sequence variable step will run and here you can see the option has been appended to the Setup.exe command line by opening C:\Windows\CCM\Logs\SMSTSLOG\smsts.log in CMTrace After rebooting into the Windows Setup portion, try pressing Shift and F10 together, if everything went ok you'll see this. So that's it, now you know how to re-enable the Diagnostic command prompt during Windows 10 1703 or later upgrades and to do it in a reasonably limited way.

  9. I created an offline media of the Windows 20H2, where I have two Windows version options, I'll call version A and version B Version A: is a standard task sequence, which disables the bitlocker, partitions the disk, installs install.wim, installs the configuration manager, restarts, then adds 3 programs, which are: 7Zip, Adobe and Notepad++, and finishes Version B: identical to version A, but without 7zip. The most bizarre thing is that in version B, everything works without a problem. But in version A, at the end of the Task Sequence (NOTE: I use TSBackground, but that's not the problem, otherwise it would affect both versions) the success screen appears, and I click the Finish button, and then I go to a screen blue (not the BSOD) saying: "Sign-in process initialization failure, Interactive logon process initialization has failed. Please consult the event log for more details." How is this possible if the difference between them is just 7zip? This screen does not corrupt the system, it only appears once, restarts, and I can log in again without any problems, and 7Zip is still there without any problem, and consulting the smsts.log, 7Zip is terminated with Exit Code 0. This error does not interfere with nothing, but it bothers me a lot, even more that I will distribute this system to more than 2,000 machines, everyone will have doubts about this screen, and this is not pleasant to leave showing. I googled it, but it seems that it happens when it really corrupts the system, in my case it doesn't, it shows up once, but I wanted to understand why the hell it shows up because of a 7Zip (already tested it with msi version, exe, old version, version new, and etc and with no result, I tried to put another program in place, like CCleaner for example and it causes the same result) I created an offline media, where I have two Windows version options, I'll call version A and version B Version A: is a standard task sequence, which disables the bitlocker, partitions the disk, installs install.wim, installs the configuration manager, restarts, then adds 3 programs, which are: 7Zip, Adobe and Notepad++, and finishes Version B: identical to version A, but without 7zip.

  10. I need to install Symantec Endpoint Protection, what would the command line be like in powershell where I can call a .ps1 script in a completely hidden and silent way? I did a previous TS that copies the setup64.exe from SEP to "C:\TEMP\" I don't have much knowledge on powerhsell as would the script that would install it silently? the argument for installing it via Batch File is / s. However, the CMD window appears during Windows logon, and Powershell can do all of this without any windows appearing, and I wanted powershell to wait for the installation to finish (I researched this and think the parameter is -WaitProcess but I don't know where how to put it) and after the installation is finished, delete the TEMP folder and restart the computer. Any help with that please?
  11. I am having an issue with imaging the surface pro 7+ everything goes through I apply the driver package which works for some I found once completed the touch screen doesn't respond I have to connect a keyboard and mouse anyone else having this issue?
  12. In a previous series of guides I showed you how to configure PKI in a lab on Windows Server 2016. In another series, I also showed you how to install System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) version 1802 on Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2017. In this lab, I will show you how to configure SCCM to utilize that PKI environment. This series is based upon an excellent video by the talented former Microsoft Premier Field Engineer Justin Chalfant here. If you haven't seen it yet, do check it out. The intention here is that after you've completed this PKI enabled SCCM lab you can then use this in future guides, and to dig deeper into new technologies from Microsoft, for example enabling a Cloud Management Gateway and/or Cloud Distribution Point and using later on, using Co-Management. Note: To complete this lab you must first complete the PKI Lab series (8 parts) and then install a new virtual machine within that PKI lab running System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) version 1802 utilizing this series (4 parts), that installation of Configuration Manager will be in HTTP mode. In addition, you must configure the Software Update Point role (in HTTP mode) on CM01 See this guide (step 2 onward) for details. For details how to configure that, see this post. It will take some time to setup but you'll be glad you did. Also, don't do this in production without consulting with a PKI Expert. I don't claim to be one, I'm just helping you get it up and running in a lab. This is intended for use in a lab only. In part 1 of this series you created an Active Directory Security Group to contain your SCCM servers that host IIS based roles such as Distribution Point, Management Point and Software Update Point, you then rebooted that server after adding it (CM01) to the group. You then created 3 certificate templates for SCCM on the Issuing CA server (IssuingCA) and issued them so that they could be available to applicable computers. You verified that you had a GPO in place for AutoEnrollment before requesting the IIS and DP/OSD Certificates on the IIS Site System (CM01) using certlm.msc. Step 1. Edit bindings in IIS for the Default Web Site and WSUS Administration Websites On the SCCM server (CM01), start Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand Sites so that you can see the Default Web Site and the WSUS Administration websites listed. Select the Default Web Site, this web site is where the management point, distribution point and other SCCM roles such as Application Catalog can be found (if they are installed). Edit bindings on the Default Web Site Right click on the Default Web Site and choose Edit Bindings from the options available. In the window that appears, select the https section (port 443) and choose Edit. In the SSL certificate dropdown menu, select SCCM IIS Cert. Click OK and then click Close. Verify changes made Once done, you can open up Internet Explorer and verify that it's reporting back in HTTPS mode for the default web site by browsing to the following addresses to verify the Netbios name and FQDN resolve in HTTPS mode. Click on the Lock in the address bar to get info about the connection. https://cm01 https://cm01.windowsnoob.lab.local/ Edit bindings on the WSUS Administration Web Site Repeat the above operation, on the WSUS Administration website (note that it uses port 8531 for https mode). click OK and Close when done. Step 2. Modify WSUS Administration SSL Settings WSUS itself requires some additional changes documented here (1) that we need to configure to allow WSUS to use HTTPS. In the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, expand sites and selct WSUS Administration. Select ApiRemoting30 under the WSUS Administration web site, in the right pane, click on SSL Settings and select Require SSL and verify that Ignore is selected before clicking Apply. Next, select ClientWebService under the WSUS Administration web site, in the right pane, click on SSL Settings and select Require SSL and verify that Ignore is selected before clicking Apply. Next, select DSSAuthWebService under the WSUS Administration web site, in the right pane, click on SSL Settings and select Require SSL and verify that Ignore is selected before clicking Apply. Next, select ServerSyncWebService under the WSUS Administration web site, in the right pane, click on SSL Settings and select Require SSL and verify that Ignore is selected before clicking Apply. Finally, select SimpleAuthWebService under the WSUS Administration web site, in the right pane, click on SSL Settings and select Require SSL and verify that Ignore is selected before clicking Apply. Step 3. Configure WSUS to require SSL In an administrative command prompt on CM01, browse to the location of WSUS installation files. cd C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools Next issue the following command where CM01.windowsnoob.lab.local is the Fully qualified domain name of your ConfigMgr server hosting WSUS. WsusUtil.exe configuressl cm01.windowsnoob.lab.local The results are shown below: Step 4. Configure SCCM to use HTTPS In this step you will configure SCCM to operate in HTTPS mode. To do that, first bring up the site properties in the SCCM Console on CM01. To bring up the site properties, select the Administration workspace, select Site Configuration, select your site and in the ribbon choose Properties. Next, click on Client Computer Configuration, select HTTPS only from the options and then select Apply. Note: If you have both HTTP and HTTPS site systems in your environment, keep the second box checked (HTTPS or HTTP) and enable the Use PKI client certificate (client authentication capability) when available check box. Step 5. Configure Trusted Root Certification Authorities Note: If you fail to add the Root CA (ROOTCA_windows noob Root CA.crt) specified here, PXE boot will fail to download policy after entering the PXE password. In the site properties screen, click on Communication Security and then click on Set beside Trusted Root Certification Authorities, and click on the yellow star to add your Root CA, in this case, the Root CA for your lab (from the offline root ca), in other words point it to the ROOTCA_windows noob Root CA.crt file which is the Trusted Root Certificate for this site (the Root CA cert). Step 6. Verify that the Distribution Point, Management Point and Software Update Point are using SSL Next you need to verify the DP (and perform some additional configuration), MP and SUP roles are using SSL. To do this, select the Administration workspace in the console, click Site Configuration, select Servers and Site System roles, and select the Distribution Point role. Right click it and choose Properties to bring up the Distribution Point role properties. You should see that it is already configured for HTTPS. Next you need to add the certificate used by clients being imaged by operating system deployment in WinPE or for WorkGroup based clients, to do so, click on Import Certificate and select Browse, browse to the location where you saved the OSD Cert.pfx file (which you created in Step 5 of part 1 here), enter the password you specified, and click Apply. Click OK to close the Distribution Point role properties. For more info on the DP Cert requirements see - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/network/pki-certificate-requirements Next, select the Management Point role properties, they are shown below, again, HTTPS is selected by default as you set it site wide with the HTTPS only option. When you selected HTTPS Only in the Client Computer Communication of the site properties, this initiated the Management Point to reinstall itself with the new settings, as you can see here in the sitecomp.log. In addition in the mpsetup.log you can see that it's configured for SSL Finally you can check mpcontrol.log this log logs the status of your Management Point, and in there you can verify that the Management Point is up and running and communicating OK in HTTPS mode and that it has successfully performed Management Point availability checks. Next, double click the Software Update Point role to review it's properties. Place a check in the Require SSL communication to the WSUS Server check box. Click Apply and click OK to close the Software Update Point properties. At this point open the WCM.log and look for a line that reads Step 7. Verify Client Received Client Certificate and SCCM Client Changes to SSL Logon to the Windows 10 1803 client and start and administrative command prompt, from there launch certlm.msc to bring up Certificates on the Local Machine. Browse to Personal and Certificates, and you should see the SCCM Client Certificate listed. Note: I assume you've already installed the ConfigMgr client agent using whatever method your prefer on the Windows 10 1803 virtual machine. Next, open the Control Panel and locate the Configuration Manager client agent in System and Security, and open it. If the client was just installed the Client Certificate will probably state Self-Signed (or None if you have just installed the client..). After a couple of minutes, close and then reopen the client and you should see that the Client Certificate states PKI. At this point, open the ClientIDManagerStartup.log in C:\Windows\CCM\Logs and you can see Client PKI cert is available. You can also verify client communication to the Management Point in the CCMMessaging.log and we can see it's successful in that communication. Job done ! You've successfully converted SCCM from HTTP to HTTPS using your PKI lab, and you've verified that the client is operating in HTTPS mode. In the next parts we'll look at the Cloud Management Gateway and Cloud Distribution Point.

  13. Hi Niall, Hope you are doing great. I was following your tutorial on migrating from MBAM to SCCM Bitlocker, as i am working on a project for a customer for same. Tutorial: https://www.niallbrady.com/2019/11/13/want-to-learn-about-the-new-bitlocker-management-in-microsoft-endpoint-manager-configuration-manager/#comment-2150 Background: They are currently using SCCM version 2006, and wanted to migrate bitlocker from MBAM. They already have a PKI infrastructure (AD Certificate Service), with the SCCM client showing being in PKI mode (in the sccm client). I followed your steps to enable https mode (as they are in HTTP/HTTPS mode) and when i did that it broke the environment, and the clients (across 15 regions) stopped connecting, so I reverted back. My question to you is, i want to continue and finish the project, can i do so without changing SCCM to full https mode? Thanks in advance for taking the time out to reply and assist, as well as to the forum members

  15. I have been getting lot of sms software inventory processor errors. I turned off the Software Inventory from client settings but that hasn't fixed the issue, I still keep getting these error messages. BADSINV folder is getting filled up with huge number of files, the size of the folder has reached 25 GB now. Error message is: Software Inventory Processor failed to process software inventory file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\auth\sinv.box\abc.SID," and has moved it to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\sinv.box\BADSinv\xyz.SID." Is there any solution for this? It was all working fine and just started happening few weeks ago. I can see on what date we started getting these errors, I didn't make any changes on that day. There is other SCCM Admin but he's not sure what might have lead to this as he's been making lot changes. Also, how do I clear the BADSINV folder? Thanks, Bunny

  17. I am deploying Windows 10 to HP Z840 and Z8 PC's using OSD in Config Manager 2010. Some of the Z8's are brand new, but most of the systems are running Windows 7 and are managed by SCCM. Some of them have single SATA or SSD drives. Some have multiple SATA or a mix of SATA and SSD drives. In systems that have an SSD and a SATA drive, I want to ensure the OS gets deployed to the SSD. In systems with multiple SATA drives, I want to ensure the OS gets deployed to the smaller drive and the larger one will be used for data storage. How best to accomplish this?
  18. Hello, We do have site wide client push set up to install the client to Workstations only. For servers, we have chosen to deploy the SCCM client in a "control way". I have an AD group "Server client deploy". I created a collection based on this AD group. My team would add selected servers to this AD group. I pushed out the client to this "Server client deploy" collection. However, every time new members are added to the AD group and show up in the SCCM Collection, the client is not installed automatically. I have to manually push out the client to the collection again. How do I deploy SCCM client to a specific collection so that whenever a new member is added, the client is installed automatically? Thank you in advance for your help/advise!
  19. I had a client that was unable to download the Endpoint Protection Policy. I browsed to the Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine folder and delete the file: Registry.pol then rebooted.

  20. Hi I have an issue whereby my Windows 10 IPU task sequence is downloading all driver packages specified in the TS (Download Package Content) allthough the correct driver packages already exist in the CCM cache on the PC running the TS. I have used the following guide to create a PreCache task sequence: https://www.imab.dk/windows-as-a-service-sharing-my-precache-and-in-place-upgrade-task-sequences-part-1/ (credit to Martin Bengtsson for the excellent guide) and it works very well. A PC which has successfully run the PreCache TS downloads the correct drivers (using a WMI query) and other packages specified that are needed and then places the computer in a collection to where the actual IPU task sequence is deployed. The problem is that the IPU task sequence which is deployed with the setting "Download all content locally before starting the task sequence" (the setting found under the "Distribution Point" tab) starts to download driver packages for other hardware models that are specified in the TS (despite using WMI queries in this TS also). Because of the current Covid-19 pandemic the majority of our users are working from home so we obviously want to keep the amount of data transfered to a minimum, it seems stupid to cache driver content that´s not needed to work around the problem. I thought that the IPU TS would evaluate the queries before downloading (i read somewhere that this was only possible for upgrade packages/language packs but in later versions of current branch also included other packages). We are running CB 1910. Hope this makes sense, if anyone has experienced this and can suggest a workaround or confirm how it´s supposed to work it would be greatly appreciated. Regards Emile
  21. I am trying to build a collection based on the Last Online time (within an arbitrary number of days). I know typically this is done using the Heartbeat, ClientActivity, or Hardware scan property. but I would like to see all machines, to identify which machines may not have the client installed. I cant for the life of me find where the column in the collections view populates from. I have the queries to filter out machines based on Last Hardware Scan shown below. I am looking for something very similar, but as I said, i cant find the property for "Last Online Time"
  22. Hello, We have created Automatic Deployment Rules and collections for our Software Updates for our servers. In the Software Update collections, we have defined a specific Maintenance Window, which relates to Microsoft's Patch Tuesday as shown in attached graphic. However, we are finding that as soon as we populate our collection, the updates are being download and installed! (i.e. Outside the Maintenance Window) Obviously this isn't right. One concern I have is that a particular server can be a member of multiple collections which might have different Maintenance Windows, so any tip on how these conflicting windows "add up" would also be helpful. Can someone give a tip on whether there is a particular log or setting in the infrastructure we can refer to to investigate this?
  23. Hello, is it possible to directly load and boot into the Windows Recovery Environment over PXE? To apply repair-tools or diagnosis for example. Our company is trying to accomplish this to support our technicians whenever a user is having some kind of trouble booting his standard image. The technician then can apply the RE over PXE and try to repair the users system. However I'm not sure how to make a winRE deployment over SCCM. What I have done is creating a task sequence where the according .wim file is loaded as a boot-image. When testing the task sequence just runs through and shuts down or restarts the computer. What I want is for the computer to remain inside the Recovery Environment and to be able to apply repair options etc. With WDS it's pretty easy to accomplish this. I haven't figured out how to do it with SCCM, as you are only able to apply task sequences and not boot-images directly. Im glad for any help.
  24. Hello sorry for my english i'm french . I have been trying for several days to install an SCCM push client, but remotely through a FortiGate. So the problem is that the clients seem to have settled into the machine: Capture task manager Capture of SCCM files present: Capture of the ccmsetup.log LOG File: And then I put the Configuration Manager capture where I don't see the PC as clients: Do you have any ideas how to solve the problem?
  25. Hi All, Since yesterday i can't open SCCM console (from remote machine and from the main server) I'm getting the default screen when the console will not open (Attached) I accidentally changed permissions under the :"SMS_Site Code" Share and i think this is what caused this problem but I'm not sure. Here is the main error i'm getting from SMSAdmin.log file: 1st error : System.Management.ManagementException\r\nProvider load failure \r\n at System.Management.ManagementException.ThrowWithExtendedInfo(ManagementStatus errorCode) 2nd Error: Transport error; failed to connect, message: 'The SMS Provider reported an error.'\r\nMicrosoft.ConfigurationManagement.ManagementProvider.WqlQueryEngine.WqlQueryException\r\nThe SMS Provider reported an error.\r\n at Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.ManagementProvider.WqlQueryEngine.WqlQueryResultsObject.<GetEnumerator>d__0.MoveNext() 3rd Erorr: Transport error; failed to connect, message: 'The SMS Provider reported an error.'\r\nMicrosoft.ConfigurationManagement.ManagementProvider.WqlQueryEngine.WqlQueryException\r\nThe SMS Provider reported an error.\r\n at Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.ManagementProvider.WqlQueryEngine.WqlQueryResultsObject.<GetEnumerator>d__0.MoveNext() 4th Error: at Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.AdminConsole.SmsSiteConnectionNode.GetConnectionManagerInstance(String connectionManagerInstance)\r\nConfigMgr Error Object: 5th Error: Error Code: ProviderLoadFailure \r\nSystem.Management.ManagementException\r\nProvider load failure \r\n at System.Management.ManagementException.ThrowWithExtendedInfo(ManagementStatus errorCode) 6th Erorr: System.Management.ManagementException\r\nProvider load failure \r\n at System.Management.ManagementException.ThrowWithExtendedInfo(ManagementStatus errorCode) Any help will be appreciated!
