This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

Recently someone suggested to me to manage Windows Updates in my organization using a WSUS server, SCCM and powershell patch audit utility.   Before the person suggested this this to me I thought I would manage updates using 1 of the 3 above, not all three.  I am familiar with WSUS, and powershell patch audit utility.  

 Could someone provide me with a top-level breakdown of how these components work together?  
Or... can you suggest your preferred method?

SCCM for Windows 7 Deployment on Vmware Workstation LAB

I have SCCM 2012 installed on a Virtual Machine in VMware Workstation.
I have Windows 7  VM (That I will use as Reference Computer) , I also have  Windows 7 iso

I would like an Expert to guide me through :
Creating an Image of the Existing Windows 7 VM (Reference Computer).
Creating a bootable window 7 USB drive

for instance, if I plug USB drive in Windows 2012 VM and boot the VM , it should format it and  install Windows 7 similar to the Reference Computer.

Thank you

Using SCCM with USB Bootable drive to deploy windows 10

Any Expert in SCCM to lay out the steps that need to be taken to deploy windows 10  using USB drive to boot the target computer?.

I have read articles and watched youtube videos, but it seems like it is hard to follow.

for instance you have Reference Computer where you install you Apps and Updates and Drivers,etc... then you create an image  of the Reference computer then you copy the image to a folder in the network , and you create Task Media in SCCM , you point to the location of the image created, then proceed creating bootable USB drive.
Assuming I am correct so far...

then when rebooting target computer off USB , how does it know where to get the image ?

Well, this is just a summary of things that I am thinking should be included in Image deployment.. this is just brain storming..I could be wrong
So, I need an Expert to lay out the steps to be taken , to deploy windows 10  using USB as the bootable drive.


Thank you

Configuring SCCM to use USB Boot

I would like to know what needs to be  set  up before configuring SCCM to use USB boot to install Windows OS. For instance :
 - Do we need WDS to be set up ? or we just  need add a base image to SCCM ?
- What BIOS settings do we need to consider before booting off the USB ?
- When Booting off the USB , the new computer will still be able to get an IP address from DHCP ?
- Can we boot the new machine while it is connected to the network or can be done offline ( I believe it needs to be connected to the network so that it will make contact with SCCM and DHCP )


Thank you

We configure our SCCM/WSUS to automatically approve the security and critical updates only every month and deploy at maintenance windows managed by SCCM.

this month (08-2019), noticed something strange, as  Microsoft released two security updates first of August,
2019-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB4512517)
2019-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 (1803) for x64-based Systems (KB4512501)

But when checked today for pending updates, I didn't find these updates waiting to install, and I noticed that Microsoft releases new updates superseded the above ones and classified as Update not under security and critical, and for sure it will not download by SCCM as per our configuration, the new updates are
2019-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 (1803) for x64-based Systems (KB4512509)
2019-08 Cumulative Update for Windows Server 2016 for x64-based Systems (KB4512495)

More details:
https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=2019-08%20update%2Bwindows%20Server%202016

Can anyone helps me/ Explain why this could happen?
Can we consider these updates like security updates and approve it

SCCM multiple domains

Dear Experts

I need some advice please; I currently have an SCCM CB environment running in the corporate domain and my company is planning on buying a few companies and they want to keep the domains separate but will have trusts in place.

The current environment is set up as follows
Domain A (Based in Europe)
150 users
1 site
Currently has the only stand-alone primary site
Bandwidth not an issue

Domain B (Based in Africa)
350 users
3 sites
No SCCM service
Bandwidth is very limited (reminds me of the old PSTN dial-up days)

Domain C (Based in South America)
300 users
5 sites
Not bandwidth issues

So what I’m looking for is some advice on how I should implement my SCCM infrastructure?
What I was thinking was extending my current primary site with a CAS server and then installing a primary site server in each domain and extend those sites with secondary sites and DP’s?
If I go this route will it give each local IT team the ability to manage there own SCCM server while having the corporate CAS server pushing down applications and policies? As each SCCM server will be installed into its own domain/forest will I have any issues or challenges?

Back at the release of Windows Server 2016 we did initial testing of installing updates on server 2016 and found the same issue as everyone else, the server automatically reboots outside of active hours. This wasn't a huge deal as we generally deploy updates via SCCM with WSUS.

This week someone came to me and asked if I could deploy an update via SCCM using a standard package with an update and using the wusa command with the /quiet /norestart switch. My question is, does installing updates using this method cause servers to automatically reboot after a certain amount of time outside of it's active hours?

Or does the Automatic Reboot behavior only apply to updates installed using Windows Updates on the local server?

Thanks

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

We need to set up a SCCM report that shows all machines missing a hardware inventory. I had thought this would be a simple task but every query I can find is focused on age of inventory, not simply missing one.

For Security reasons I would like to know if it's possible to remove admins from the high risk security groups on AD such as domain admin group for users which are assigned to services such as SCCM, SCOM, SQL, Exchange, Skype fb..etc

I have tried to remove SCCM user from domain admin for instance but SCCM ended up having issues with Active directories not being able to copy data to users. For SCCM I found the following link but I would appreciate if someone has already been through this and came to a summary of placing all required permissions into a single account to manage computers/users in all sites.

For Example:

For Exchange the only required groups for an admin user is Organization Management and Remote desktop (In case of RDP login to Exchange Server).
For Skype (CSAdministrators and Remote Desktop) ..etc

I am using an article I found (https://tcsmug.org/blogs/sherry-kissinger/316-configmgr-inventory-per-user-network-printer-mapped-information-datashift-replacement)  to use a VBscript to create WMI classes, and populate them, with a list of the logged in users mapped network drives.

The query works three of my Windows 10 machines, but not the other seven. The OS is Windows 10, 1803 in all cases.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Replication between our site server and our CAS went down.  We found what caused the issue but I would like to know if clients will still function properly and deploy applications/packages when the CAS is down.  Do clients continue to do their job if site/CAS replication is down and what client symptoms might show up in clients if that replication is broken.

Pleasr guide me by step by step details for what I need to purchase in terms of licensing after uploading win 10 either in WDS or SCCM?

Hey All!
I am trying to use packages in SCCM 2012r2 to deploy AutoCAD during an OSD Task Sequence. The package works, but it downloads the entire thing to the PC before it installs. This takes about 45-60 minutes before installing which also takes 45-60 minutes. I wouldn't care much but we have to do 3 versions of AutoCAD per PC. Now when I deploy AutoCAD (same exact package) to a regular PC as a package installation, I can have it install from the DP instead of downloading the package, which works great. Installs in 45 min-ish with no download.

Is there a way to do the same thing via TS? It would save time and I could remove a step that clears the Cache after each one is installed. Does anyone have any experience with this?

EDIT:
The package is about 30GB, which is why I want to avoid downloading if possible, and why we run it from a DP during installation.

We're having issues regarding patching and reporting via SCCM.  This seems to stem from two sources, DNS and SCCM.  Some of the issues originate from multiple sources...

1.  When help desk would reimage the same machines, they did not go into AD to delete the "old" machine name or clean up the process on the backend.

2.  We migrated from one SCCM server (site) over to another.

3.  Some machines on the current SCCM are still pointing to the "old" site.

4.  On our DNS server, there are multiple IPs showing for the same machine name.

We need to do the best possible way as far as time and man power...while at the same time, with the least possible downfall should anything occur (uptime for our users).  

Please let me know your recommendations.
