I have DPM 2012 server with a single disk pool that needs to be replaced with a larger pool. Can someone please outline the process? Do I remove the pool from DPM prior to destroying the raid 5 array in windows? Once the new disks are added to windows and then DPM Will the backup jobs need pointing to the new DPM disk pool somehow?

I am deploying software via SCCM, I have MSI files that have worked fine, and some .exe files that have worked fine.

I am working with a few that are getting stuck on "waiting to install". It looks like it gets the content from the DP point no issue.

I cannot figure out which logs to check to see where the install is hanging up if it is at all.

The example I am using is for Microsoft Office. I have used this document (yes for sccm 2012, but still helps with having the instructions)
Windows 10 Enterprise 1809,   Deploying Language Packs.  

Can someone help me with deploying Language Packs for Windows 10, 1809.    

There is very little information for 1809.

We are using MDT for our reference image, and then we create the WIM and insert into SCCM.    

What is best practice, and if you can provide step-by-step it would be appropriated.   I am new to deploying images.

I am unable to install SCCM client onto computers using client push. All the needed dependencies have been configured properly. Firewall ports, adminshare, GPO, etc.
So i created a test collections consisting of several machines and tried to push the client onto them. Unfortunately, the installation continues to fail. I tried to look at the logs on these machines, but the ccmsetup.exe file is no where to be found. On the SCCM server, all the site and component roles are showing green.  No issues there.
Any idea what I am doing wrong?
I can post the logs from the SCCM server if needs be.

Also, would it better to do this via GPO, instead of client push?

Any help would be appreciated.....

SCCM Client 5.00.8740.1031 will not update on a bunch of computers.  
I have looked at the C:\windows\ccmsetup\logs  and I am not seeing any error, but nor am I seeing newer ccmsetup.log, client.msi.log, ccmsetup-ccmeval.log.  I have to be missing something.

I have manually attempted to update by right clicking on the computer in SCCM and select install client, but nothing.

I am running the most current SCCM 5.00.8740.1033 on the server and 5.00.8740.1031 is the most current client.
Hello, I need help creating a PowerShell script to deploy the sccm 1810 client
smsts.logHi Experts,

We recently upgraded Microsoft SCCM configuration manager to version 1810 (console version 5.1810.1075.1700), and now imaging of client machines fails. SCCM is installed on Windows Server 2012 R2

There is no problem starting the imaging and the process will put the Operating system (windows 7 x64) on the machine and all the relevant drivers correctly but when it is trying to install the configuration Manager Client onto the machine at some point it fails to complete it and then just drops into Windows 7 as if the task sequence has finished.

I have been over the steps I have taken since the upgrade as follows:
•      Created new task sequence
•      Created new Boot Files. (Imported relevant network drivers)
•      Created new configuration manager client.
Everything should be updated to match the new ADK and MDT binaries.
There is one thing I have discovered and that is that the original 2012 client is part of the base image so is installed before the task sequence tries to put the updated one on the device. When the imaging drops into windows, I log in and check the client version and it is the old one.

There doesn’t appear to be a lot of info in the logs apart from the mention of failing to install the client. Such as this line in the smsts.log: ![LOG[Failed to execute task sequence (0x80004005)]LOG]!><time="09:43:28.544+00" date="01-14-2019" component="OSDSetupHook" context="" type="3" thread="2828" file="osdsetuphook.cpp:395">

I have a request to create a report in SCCM that will show how often a specific user has logged into a specific system in the past 30 days.

I could also try SQL query directly on the SCCM database if that is an option - just not an expert with SQL queries.

I've become pretty adept at hacking canned reports to do what I want but I don't have the skill to write this report from scratch.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to update windows 2012 server manually. but, Windows Server 2012 server keep searching for an update. We have SCCM installed in our environment.  I have no issue updating manually on 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 R2 servers. The only issue in Windows 2012 version. Any input to resolve this issue?
Hello there,We are running SCCM 1801 and have the following in place:
1. We have an automatic deployment rule for Windows 10 and Office 2016 Updates.
2. This rule starts during the first week of each month.
3. The software available time is set to "as soon as possible"
4. The installation deadline is set to Specific time: 7 days
5. This rule alows system restarts and Software Update Installations outside the maintenance window once the deadline passes
6. However, Device restart behavior is set to suppress the system restart

We are encountering a situation where reboots don't get forced after the deadline passes. We want users to have some control over this by allowing them to set up their setting via the Software Update Center they get when the deployment rule runs each month. However, if they ignore it, we do want forced reboots after the deadline. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to fix this?
I would like to create an SCVMM 2012 availability set that takes in mind that the host servers are blades in the same chassis. So I've got 12 2012R2 blades, four in each of 3 blade chassis. I've been reading on creating an availability set so that SCVMM prevents certain VMs from sharing the same host. Is there any way to prevent them from sharing a group of hosts? For example, I have two web app servers (redundant to each other). I would prefer that out of blades 1-4, 5-8, and 9-12 that the two VMs are separated on say 1-4 and 9-12. The goal is to reduce downtime in the case of a complete chassis or interconnect failure. If SCVMM just separates by blade, then the VMs may be on blades 1 and 2, and they'd both go down if there was a chassis failure. I don't want to create an ownership so that the VM isn't allowed to start on certain blades if that's avoidable, because then what happens if we need to take a chassis down and the VM has been banned from all the blades except for one chassis? Hoping someone can help me with a solution that I'm missing.
I am trying to upgrade Windows 10 Enterprise from 1703 to 1809 using SCCM Current branch on Surface Pro 4 and Surface Pro 5.
I have just published the upgrade to a collection which will then appear in Software Center "Updates".
The update is received and installed and you then get prompted to reboot.
Once rebooted the upgrade hangs on around 75% or 79%. The upgrade never completes and you have to power off\on and Windows remains on 1703.
Some upgrades have worked and have successfully completed, but it seems I have a batch that has issues.

I have tried the following:
1. Increased the maximum runtime to 240min (Made no difference)
2. Installed the latest Surface Pro driver and firmware pack (Made no difference)
3. Ran Microsoft Fix it tool which did delete the MS update datastore and created a new one (Resolved the issue on a few but not all – Not a solution)
4. Ran Setup.exe from the VLSC Windows 10 Enterprise iso. Same issue gets stuck around 75% or 78%.

I have attached the setuperr.log and a screenshot of the error which presented with running setup.exe from the iso.

Be grateful for any help.

Hello SCOM guru's

We have SCOM 2012 R2, and we have forgotten how to put a specific monitor/alert in maintenance mode at certain times. We CAN do it for an entire computer, but I cannot recall the steps to just put a specific single monitor/alert in maintenance mode.

Could someone help us with solving that puzzle again?

Thank you so much


We have SCCM 2016 and i am newly assigned to it.

Application deployment has never worked outside of our office we have remote sites connected to us with a very decent connection so bandwidth is not a problem for application deployment. when i deploy and application the computers in remote site can see it in the software center but it just get stuck at 0% downloading. we do not have distribution points at these sites because the computers are not that much. some logs are attached from the client computer.LogsLogsLocaationservices.PNG
We presently use Hangouts chats in our organization and installing via SCCM. It installs fine until Hangouts gets updated then when the user tries to update the software they get a message stating "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable." It also asked to be pointed to InstallHangoutsChat.msi which is avalilable but the updater will not work. If I remove the software and install without SCCM the updater will work fine.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this so that Hangouts Chat will update even after being installed with SCCM?
I have SCCM 2016 but i am also very new to it

I want to add a shortcut on all the desktops of a specific URL that should open with chrome.
1) How do i create a short cut
2) after users test the new url shortcut i want to delete the old one.

How can install google chrome not the msi but ChromeStandaloneSetup64.exe silently through SCCM on computers in the network. I don't want to use the MSI.

We are using SCCM Branch Cache 1710, and I created a task sequence for a  Windows 10 machine with 2 SSD drives.

Disk 1 needs to be where windows is installed.
I create a  task sequence
If I create a single partition (Partiton Disk 1-UEFI): Disk number: 1, Disk Type: GPT
For disk1 it works

Then when I add a second task sequence for Disk0,  Disk number: 0, Disk Type: GPT
It goes to the larger disk, which is what I don't want.

Can anyone help me on having the OS install on the smaller disk.
When attempting to use PXE boot on a client PC I'm getting the error: "Configuration Manager is looking for Policy." And then it aborts.

I'm following the article:

Near the very bottom. It says to use SMSPXE.log but the log only has 4 errors:
Failed to load global logging configuration. Using defaults
Could not load logging configuration for component ccmperf. Using defaults.
Failed to load global logging configuration. Using defaults.
Could not load logging configuration for component ccmperf. Using defaults.

So I'm kind of stuck at this point.
In all sccm clients updates showing downloading 0% under a primary site server.error coming in DTS.log.log file attached.
Any solution.Thanks
While using SCCM Current branch v1810 I am trying to update my Boot images to the latest image of v1809. I have uninstalled Windows ADK and installed the latest version which was v1809. And I also installed the add on Windows PE addon as well.

Basically I followed this guide to the T:

Once I got to the final step where I needed to update Boot image (x64) by going to update distribution points I get an error: "Failed to insert OSD binaries into Mounted WIM file"
(often happens if unsigned drivers are inserted into x64 boot image)

So I'm not sure what to do at this point to get it working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
i am trying to Create an image to add to SCCM. (first time ever, new to this in SCCM)

Built winpe USB 3.0 (16gb FAT32) with 1809 ADK and 1809 WINPEADK.
i have a fresh 1809 build.(Dell optiplex 5060. i7 8th gen) never connected to Internet or domain.
installed the applications i wanted. (offline)  no encryption on the disk.
ran sysprep
Booted into WINPE try to run this command:
dism /capture-ffu /imagefile=e:\Win10.ffu /capturedrive=\\.\PhysicalDrive0 /name:Win10 /description:”Win1 1809 ffu”

and it starts and immediately fails and gives me this error : 1009 ' the configuration registry database is corrupt."di
*usb im trying to write to is 64GB 3.0 NTFS

i then booted into the OS ran sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

then sysprep /oobe /generalize

all the above worked. then i booted to PE again and it still fails and gives the same 1009 error.
