  1. Hi all, I'm new to SCCM (this is day 4), and I'm trying to get some laptops that are only connected with Wifi to run an OSD, including a domain join, all the way through. By having it cache the files locally, I've gotten pretty far. I used USMT to preserve a netsh wifi export xml file. Now, where I'm stuck is getting that xml imported as the first thing that happens after the first reboot, and I'm not sure how, because none of the steps in the TS are very descriptive in what all they are doing or when the reboot is happening. Now, I know I can make an image with the xml in the
  2. Is it safe to chain an OS upgrade Task Sequence? For example, I've finally been able to upgrade Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 to Windows 10 Enterprise 1703, then once that upgrade is complete, I want it to immediately upgrade from 1703 - 1903. Will it work like this? Or do I need to create some sort of variable, etc. Thanks!
  3. So, I have a few custom groups in my task sequence that install applications based upon some WMI queries using a naming convention. But I am having some issues trying to get it working exactly. Here is what I am trying to do. I have two groups. Employee and Labs. The naming convention for employees is LIB-AU and for the Labs its LIB-AUXXXXX-XX where the X's represent numbers I have this particular "If" statement. Here is the query in question that I currently have for employee SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem WHERE Not Name LIKE 'LIB-AU%-%' Here is the query for the l
  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. Hello everyone After 4 days fighting with Upgrade task sequence, I don't know what to do anymore As I can't use the custom Windows 10 image with OEM + Theme + Provisionned app removed in Upgrade task sequence I had to repeat the action within the Upgrade TS I used the Provisioning packages for Windows 10 way, generated a PPKG & tried : DISM /Online /Add-ProvisioningPackage /PackagePath:TOTO.ppkg DISM /Image:%OSDISK%\ /Add-ProvisioningPackage /PackagePath:TOTO.ppkg DISM.exe /Image=C:\ /Add-ProvisioningPackage /PackagePath:TOTO.ppkg none working So I tried
  7. So I have been on version 1702 for a few weeks now and at the start of this week, the deployments have been failing when the os is starting to be deployed. I have made no changes to the task. On Monday I was told that it failed to image a desktop. I looked at the logs and saw the 80070002 error looking more there are other errors none of them make any sense. I have double checked the Network access account nad redistributed the os package. I have even tried and built a new TS still the same results. Please help. I have attached the log file. smsts3.log Edit: I have looked at o
  8. Hi guys, I've the issue that all Install Application Steps in my Win7 x64 Tasksequence fail, but Install Package Actions run normaly. I get Error:80004005 Source:Unknown. We use SCCM 2012 SP1 with CU2 installed. It would be create and would rescue my holidays if someone could help me with this Problem. I've attached the smsts.log for more details. Thx, Lars log1.log
  9. Hi Everyone, I found a great link on TechNet regarding information on Prestaged TS. The author even provided a TS ZIP that I was able to import " ConfigMgr 2012 Task Sequence to apply Prestaged Media to multi-partitioned BIOS & UEFI PCs"The last successful action in the TS was to shutdown Win PE. From there when you boot the PC back up it fails at writing to the drive. I was wondering if someone else could recreate the issue I am seeing or provide a solution if got it work? Thanks in advance Apply Prestaged Media for BIOS and UEFI PCs - CM12.zip
  10. Hi all. I have one Active Directory Domain with 12 sites, one Primary Site SCCM 2012 (with 2 servers) and 11 secondary sites. I create TS with 2 package and 1 application. Deploy this TS on all DP (11 DP on secondary site). One of secondary site is fail (ver diedser).

  11. Hi all, I'm in the midst of learning the OSD process that's handled by SCCM. My task sequence is using the default steps in order to minimise confusion / issues. The problem I'm facing is that during the disk partitioning steps, the C: partition isn't being set as active, so when the TS steps through to deploying the OS, it cannot find an area to put it. The key areas of the log are pasted below, but I've attached the entire log just in case. Any guidance would be thoroughly appreciated. Thanks in advance. ==============================[ OSDDiskPart.exe ]============================== O
  12. Hi, if you are using UDI wizard to deploy your OS and If you want to have drivers installed for same laptop/machine but different OS you need to add a condition for both packages: 1. First you configure the operating systems in UDI wizard, then their name (Image Name, NOT display Name!) is what counts. 2. Then you implement OS into UDI task sequence, and for that to work you also use OSDImageName variable. For example Windows 7 x64 Enterprise you Add condition->TS variable->OSDImageName equals "Windows 7 x64 Enterprise", I got that name from UDI wizard. F
  13. Hi All, I am quite new to SCCM, but I'm slowing getting to grips with it. I am just wondering if there is way to add a PC to a collection and it then rebuild automatically. So far i have created a collection and deployed a TS to it as required. But i still have to PXE boot the PC for it to rebuild. IS there a way where it will PXE boot itself? For example if i open software store and tell it to re install the OS, it knows to PXE and start up in PE. Thanks, Craig.
  14. I've been beating my head against the wall with this problem. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to further troubleshoot it. Let me know if you need further information. We have a couple task sequences for deploying Win7 Ent and Win7 pro to a variety of machines in our offices, and adding a couple of applications. These have been working fine, and continue to work fine with all machines except for some Lenovo Z570 laptops, which to my mind rules out any cert issues, as has been suggested by some posts I've found with similar problems and log entries. Parsing through SMSTS.log files
  15. Hello All Been a many time reader of these great forums but first time asking for help. I have an issue with trying to run a task sequence. I have created a new wim through CM and originally I put down one of our servers as the save point for it. When I built the TS I selected this file as the windows image but when I ran the TS it failed at this point saying it couldn't find the file "a package referenced by the task sequence could not be found". I moved the wim to the SCCM local server as the distmgr.log said it couldn't find the file/or didn't have access rights to it. Again I got the
  16. Hello, Would anybody be able to assist me with instructions on how I can distribute a folder to "Users, Public, Public Desktop" I would like to add this to a functional existing task sequence, but I'm lacking the knowledge to do so. Any assistance from the users of this awesome forum would be GREATLY appreciated.
  17. Just started having an issue when attempting to PXE into configmgr console for OSD. My machines will pxe to server, load boot image, load WinPE, prepare windows, load nic adapter, hang at 2012 SCCM splash scrren for about 20 seconds, then reboot. Would anybody happen to have a resolution to this issues we are seeing? I have redistibuted/updated distribution points in terms of content including boot images. This just started since i've moved and isolated this pxe service point to a new vlan. Thanks
  18. Hello, i've had some success deploying WIndows 7 / 8.1 with bitlocker pre-provisioning. However today i've tried to bitlocker a Dell Latitude E6540 laptop and noticed the bitlocker pre provisioning step taking very long. After the wim file and the drivers are applied the disk is only encrypted to 8 % or so. After the setup configuration manager reboot the enable bitlocker ts step fails because the encryption is not completed. I've seen this behavior on older models (eg. Optiplex 960) but i would not have expected this to happen on new hardware. Has anyone experienced something similar ?
  19. Hello all the experts out there. I have recently upgraded SCCM 2012 R2 and am now experiencing and issue with my task sequences not completing correctly. They all (Build, deploy, win7 and win8) get to the point where they install the client and then reboot straight into windows without installing updates or applications. Things I have checked: Boot image version is: 6.3.9600.16384 TS uses correct boot image TS is Newly created CM TS not MDT TS Network Account password I am using ADK 8.1 and MDT 2013 The smsts.log file has the strange error "Failed to get password, Failed t
  20. Let me start by saying Thank you! for writing such awesome tutorials - you guys rock! I have somewhat of a unique (at least I think it's unique) situation. I have several remote sites that all have their own local ISPs - these sites are not networked to the point of being able to access the CAS directly. We are using Win 7 Enterprise so we can take advantage of MS DirectAccess and/or a 3rd party zero touch VPN client. My trouble(s) are this: I need to upgrade some Windows XP SP3 machines that reside in these 'independent' sites to Windows 7 Enterprise. I have created a TS on Standalon
  21. We are currently running SCCM 2012 R2 on a Windows Server 2012 environment. We deploy Windows 8.1 - 64 bits through a task sequence. Our question is, is it possible to deploy a Wireless profile through a script/package during the OSD task sequence? I've fiddled around with a script using NETSH, and manually i'm able to import / export a profile. However, this only works in the current user context. Unfortunately you cannot use 'user context' driven packages in a task sequence. Is there another method? Thanks in advance.
  22. Hi, I have a really odd problem that I’ve never seen before when deploying an OSD TS to an HP ProBook 6560b. I’m deploying Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit using Confg Manager 2012 SP1. I have the latest driver pack for this model from HP (sp61783.exe), and the correct driver pack is selected in the TS using a WMI query. The driver package is installed OK, however the wrong NIC driver is installed. The NIC is an Intel 82579V (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1503), however the driver for the 82579LM (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502) gets installed. Checking the setupapi.dev.log I can see that in the f
  23. Hi, I found that KB2821895 was breaking my TS (B&C and Deployment) What happened is a reboot that apparently could not be supressed and it kept on breaking my tasksequence. Updates install, TS reboots, starts task update again -> during that proces again a reboot -> patch is applied, but TS is unable to resume and exits. Anyone had similar experience and found a sollution? except removing the patch from updates that are deployed? Thx
  24. Hey guys! I'm new here but I really enjoyed reading on this forum about troubleshooting and found many awesome guides here. Now my first post. Didn't find anything within at least 20 hours of troubleshooting and googling without a single result. My Lab Setup: Server 2012 Hyper-V Host - Server 2012 with SCCM 2012 Standalone Primary Site Server (SCCM 2012 SP1 CU2) - Server 2012 with SQL Server 2012 SP1 - Server 2012 as Domain Controller, DHCP Server, DNS Server etc. Installed roles on the SCCM: - Application Catalog web service point - Application Catalog website point - C
  25. Please help. The error I am receiving is "the task sequence cannot be run because the program files cannot be located on a distribution point" I know there has been other topics concerning this issue. But I've tried a lot of those suggestions. I am booting a virtual machine with an iso instead of PXE booting. I am still in the testing phases of this (obviously). The ID it is pointing to is the configuration manager upgrade. However with that said If I were to delete the current package, rebuild it, distribute and deploy it, the next time I try to run the TS it will point to a differen
