Hello -

I am trying to deploy an application to a Device Collection (All Devices with x86 Office), however I have over 350 devices and would like to break this device collection into smaller collections for deployment. How can I achieve this within SCCM 2012?

Thank you!

HI Team,

can someone help me with SCCM WQL query to get installed software information for a collection of machines. I don't have access to run sql queries, so i required wql query to run and get required data. I already ran wql query based on product name & version but it is getting me lot of software info. so how to find out only important installed software info like in Add Remove programs but not the query based on specific software.

Thanks in advance.

I'm using SCCM 2012 R2.

I created some Task Sequences to Capture and Restore user state.  Both work when doing an in-place migration but fails doing a side-by-side migration to another pc that is already imaged and is recognized by SCCM.  Both computers are in the same Device Collection.

First, I did the in-place migration.  The MIG gets created in the SMP, the computer association gets created and the restore completes without error.

I then manually created a computer association from the same source computer to a different destination computer leaving the original in-place association in SCCM; thus, at this point I have two computer associations:

Source1 to Source1 (auto created during in-place upgrade)
Source1 to Source2 (manually created).

I log into Source2 and launch the Restore Task Sequence but it fails.  

I delete the original in-place association and try the TS again and it fails.

Both times it fails with this this in the smsts.log.

SMP request to "http://sccm.domain.com" failed with error: E_SMPERROR_RESTORING_CLIENTID_NOT_FOUND (207)

Any ideas?

For non-DMZ Distribution Points, there is no problem on enrolling certificates.

Please advise and thanks in advance..

I currently have an SCCM CB environment installed, and discovered systems in AD via system discovery. I do not have auto client install enabled because I would like to use group policy to push to systems that login actively on the network. I see how to configure the policy to install clients, but how do I use it to upgrade the client rather than install? Is it automatic? There needs to be a site re-assignment and upgrade so the new system center does not needlessly redeploy software. The upgrade allows for each system to maintain installation history (as far as I know). Thanks!

I have an SCCM 2007 environment with over 100 DPs running Windows 2008R2. I have a disk space problem whereby my C drive is getting full and now need to send more packages to the DPs. I want to add an additional TB drive to the DPs and mount it. The next step would be to move the SMSPKG and SMSPKGC$ folders(as in the attached file) to the 1TB drive (mount drive called Tier2Data)  to create more space on C.

1. How can I achieve this so that the move is "global", ie the folders are moved to the mounted drive across all the DPs in the environment?
2. What impact if any could arise if I do this?
3. Can I make this the default setup for the folders going forward for the new DP s to be added in the environment?

Thanks

Hello -

I am trying to deploy Cisco's AMP client to a group of test users. I wasn't sure if I should use a new packaged setup or new Application. I want the client AV to be installed /s (silent) and put a shortcut on desktop GEI_IT_Protect_FireAMPSetup.exe /s /desktopicon 1.

What is the best way to deploy this out?

Thanks,

Does anyone remember the "Computer Details" report you can get in SCCM 2007? You can find the report by clicking on the link next to a computer listed in one of the many canned reports.  I can't find a report ID for it b/c the url is different.

http://<sccm_server>/SMSReporting_Site2/MachDetails.asp?Machine=XXXXXXX

I can't find an equivalent in our new SCCM "Current Branch" setup (which is relying on SQL Server reporting services on a separate SQL server). Our old SCCM server just runs reporting locally. So I'm dealing with an apples to oranges comparison.

When I search for help on this, I only find links back to SCCM 2007 specific articles.  I found this report helpful on occasion and I'm hoping it's just hiding in plain view where I haven't thought to look yet.

Thanks.

Not sure if this really counts, because I wasn't the SysAdmin in this scenario; instead, I was the problematic user! But here goes: back when I was a student at CalPoly, we had access to the school's UNIX system for things like our email. I had taken the C and UNIX class, so I knew my way around the command line enough to do more than just use PINE to check my email. I also really liked the SETI @ Home project, so I got the UNIX version of the client and installed it on my account on the school's system and would just let it run.

I think maybe I had it going for a month and I have no idea what sort of resources it was taking up. I imagine it wasn't really all that bad, but eventually, a SysAdmin did shut it down and told me not to do that again...

I imagine college SysAdmins have to deal with a lot of shenanigans like that! :-D

Hi

I manage various Active Directory domains that contain Windows servers and am looking for a solution to manage servers on all the domains.  These are separate domains in separate Forests and are on separate VLANs.

I am aware of SCCM but from investigations I would need a Distribution Point on each Domain but that is not practical.  Is there a tool(s) that I should use for the following?:

  • Assist with server deployment by adding roles and installing base applications
  • Manage updates of non Microsoft products (or Microsoft patches not available via Microsoft update), including managing reboots before and after installation
  • [Nice to have]: Ability to roll out a Group policy change to each domain without having to log into it
Thanks

for deployment of windows 10 through system center configuration manager, i read in some articles that MDK is integrated with SCCM

which i think is windows  ADK ? am i correct.

Does SCCM use USMT to do so which is part of MDK?

my question is:

A)if i want to deploy windows image or OS  i can directly do it from SCCM  distribution point or application  so  why use Microsoft deployment kit

B)and if i want to deploy the image to let us say 100 computers, how long it should take through SCCM

Hi Guys,

Just curious if the DHCP options 66 & 67 need to be enabled for PXE boot if i have an IP helper address on the VLAN set to the SCCM host.

Just having a few issues with the PC booting the image. Seems to find the server fine, but has a few issues.

Such as when DHCP option 67 is set to the bootfile name to (\smsboot\x64\wdsmgfw.efi)  I get a "File too big to fit in free base memory" Error.

And when its set to (\smsboot\x64\wdsnbp.com) I get the no response from WDS server error.

Our SCCM, WDS, ADK, and MDT are all installed on the one box so not sure if this is causing any conflict.

See attached files

I am running into a very frustrating error when trying to deploy a Windows 10 pro x64 image from a WDS server to a Lenovo L560 laptop. I am getting the attached error (Really useful eh?)

I have tried quite a few things but have not had any luck. Things I have tried:
Re-capturing the Image
Using a different laptop
Getting the most up to date SCCM driver pack
When I remove the unattend xml file the error does not some up, it just wants me to install Windows by hand (Which defeats the purpose)

I booted to a usb and found this error log in F:\Windows\Panther\setuperr.log

Hello - I have a software package I'd like to deploy to only users with x86 office and another package to be deployed to x64 office users. I have successfully created the software package however not sure how to deploy to only those specified users. I am using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. Thank you so much for your help.

I was wondering if you  could help me with this issue.  I am working on security in SCCM 1610 to give certain users access to report information for  their specific department needs.    
I have created a test user, created Security Scope, made a copy of the Report Viewer Only role and added user to this security role.  I am happy with most of the access they are limited to.  
The only reports that I cannot restrict their access to are the MBAM reports.  The user is able to see all the collection ID's listed rather then just the collection ID for their department.   Is this because the MBAM reports are not native SCCM reports but added when installing MBAM on SCCM so the security policies don't applied to these reports?
Can you tell me how I can restrict these reports to only show information for the collection/collection id's they need to see?  
Thank you.
