Hello -

I am trying to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection and replace with new AV within SCCM 2012. I have the install application for Symantec and new AV. The Symantec application should have a uninstall switch, however not sure how to double check that with .exe I have for Symantec. I have tried to run uninstall of Symantec with Uninstall.exe however no luck. I have also tried to run a batch file from my desktop with wmic product where "name like 'Symantec Endpoint Protection%'" call uninstall /nointeractive, however no luck.

I am looking to Schedule the deployment of windows updates to a client using SCCM. So far this has been a manual process with the following:

  • Test machine Collection
  • IT Users Collection
  • Test Users Group
  • Day 1 Deplyment
  • Day 2 Deployment

I have created an Automated rule for the initial "Test Machine Collection" following PrajWaldesai but I would like to have the whole process automated something like:

  • Test machine Collection
- Patch Tuesday
  • IT Users Collection
- +24 Hours
  • Test Users Group
- +48 Hours
  • Day 1 Deplyment
- +4 Days
  • Day 2 Deployment
- +6 Days

I am sure that i am not the first looking to complete this and automate the global roll out of the updates and wondered if others could offer experience.

Or is it as simple as an automatic deployment rule for each collection.

I am trying to load SCCM on a Windows 2016 and getting the following errror on the server in question:

Download Update: A recoverable error has occurred.  A retry attempt will be made


I have re-imaged this server multiple times and get stuck at this point. The c:\windows\ccmsetup folder only gets half of the files it should and that's when it gets stuck. I am open to any ideas on what to check.

I have loaded SCCM before on many servers (including Windows 2016); but on this one I am STUCK !

If I let the load continue, this last time keeps happening every 5 minutes for HOURS !


MANY THANKS in advance for ALL the help !

Hello all,

I've been using SCCM OSD to image machines for about 2 years.  Suddenly last month, it stopped working.  I assumed that we had a corrupted driver or boot wim.  I re-created both the x64 and x86 boot wims, downloaded the newest WinPE 10 drivers, etc.

and am still having the issue.

When doing PXE boot, I"m getting the failure at preparing network connections.  When loading PE from a usb, it loads but then says "There are no task sequences available for this computer."  If I do an F8 , ipconfig shows an IP and diskpart shows the drives, which I assume means that I have the correct drivers.  Fwiw- I've tried just about every driver combination that I can think of, to no avail.

The packet captures seem to be failing at an IPsec port 500 error, but I can't see what would be causing that. -it might be a red herring.

To make matters worse, our MS premier support contract ended the day before it broke and we're waiting for our legal dept. to sign the new enterprise agreement, so I have no MS support.

I'm including the smsts.log from one of the machines and wireshark packet traces from a mirrored port for both PXE and USB PE boots.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated, as I need to start pushing Win10 out by the end of the month.

Hello -

I am trying to create a query that will give me all my Windows 7 x64 and x86 systems.

What I have is this below, however it doesn't give me the details I want. I want it to list OS, IP, Name, client active or not and whether or not it's a x64 or x86 system.


select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Workstation 6.1%" or SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Windows 7%" and SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.SystemType = "x64-based PC"

I run this for x86 and it gives me same result as the query above

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM on SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Workstation 6.1%" or SMS_R_System.OperatingSystemNameandVersion like "%Windows 7%" and SMS_G_System_COMPUTER_SYSTEM.SystemType = "x86-based PC"

Thanks,

Hi All,
We have SCCM 2012, Current Branch.
Been installed (by a consultant) about 6 weeks ago. We have ran into an issue with clients updating and not sure if they have ever updated since it's been installed
I think (I will double check) most of our clients are showing the following errors from the windowupdate.log

2017/08/03 22:09:18.4202729 312   3520  ProtocolTalker  SyncServerUpdatesInternal failed 0x8024401c
2017/08/03 22:09:18.4246690 312   3520  Agent           Failed to synchronize, error = 0x8024401C

I have attached logs from 3 Windows 10 machines. These include WU log and WUAHandler.log
Also attached are 2 SCCM Log files

What I have tried.
1. Can telnet onto port 8530 from any client machine
2. Checked event logs
3. Rebooted SCCM Server
4. Made the changes as per this article - all through I don't think it was relevant - https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/the_secure_infrastructure_guy/2015/09/02/windows-server-2012-r2-wsus-issue-clients-cause-the-wsus-app-pool-to-become-unresponsive-with-http-503/
5. Ran through this article - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb735874.aspx.
But still haven't been able to crack the issue.

Questions
1. Can you still use WU to check for updates that will just go to your SCCM Server and expect to find and install updates? Or do updates get installed differently using ADR's?
I was expecting to click "Check for Updates" and find available updates.

2. Under update history, would I still see updates …

Hello -

I am looking to deploy a application within SCCM 2012 and the application is a .exe and vendor says it doesn't have any installers to accommodate any management installation platforms.  I'd like to know how I can use a batch file to run exe and silently without any user interaction. I can push out from SCCM and place package in Software Center to be deployed , however there is a popup that needs software license agreement to be checked. I do not want users to have to do this and I want it silently installed. Is there any way to accomplish this with .exe?

Thanks,

Hi Team,

I want to create a package & deploy through sccm that contains a batch script that will stop service, delete file and start service.
 
Below are the commands that I am including in script which I want to create as package & deploy on all machines using sccm.

Script:
Net stop HAgent /y
Cmd /c Del "C:\programFiles\WDM\Hagentsettings.in"
Net start Hagent /y

Will this work through sccm?

Hello -

I pulled a SCCM 2012 query on all systems and I see a lot of duplicates. Not sure why I am seeing duplicate devices all with same computer name. What is the best way to clean up?

Thanks,

are there any common reasons why devices in a domain may not be showing in system centre, or any pointers on where to start on how to resolve? I am not a SCCM admin myself, but wondered how the device initially gets added to the SCCM database? Is it a manual process when you procure and build new devices to add them into the system.

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?
