Hi,

I'm doing an upgrade to SCCM 1702 from 1606 soon.

Would you guys also update the Windows 10 ADK to the latest version (1703) or leave it for what it is?
And why?

Currently I have Windows 10 ADK 1607 installed.

I'm just looking for tips.
I know that ADK can be tricky. It was never without bugs. Now there are some bugs as well with this version.

But I was thinking, now that I'm upgrading the environment I could upgrade the ADK as well as that would upgrade my boot images as well.

I am planning to deploy Windows 10 Creators Update soon.
Can that one be deployed with Windows 10 ADK 1607 as well?

I have about 150 computers.  I do not have Group Policy and or SCCM.  I am looking for a simple batch file to copy a file to the desktop of these computers instead of typing each ip address individually.  I work in a lab where the systems are XP because of the custom applications.  Any suggestions?

I thought about xcopy or robocopy, but not sure how to specify a range of ips.

Hi,
We have:
SCCM 2012 R2
DP in remote office with PXE options enabled (VM within HyperV)
DHCP is on a Cisco switch
Option 66/67 set on the switch, option 66 ip [address] & option 67 ascii smsboot\x64\wdsnbp.com

When we try to do a PXE boot it displays the following error: PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout, see screenshot attached.

We use to have DHCP on the physical server at the remote office and that was also the DP and this worked fine. Since moving the DP to a VM and the DHCP to the Cisco switch it is no longer working.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

I am trying to run a report in SCCM 2012 R2 which doesn't appear to be out of the box.

Basically, I need a report that tells me number of patches missing per device in a collection against a baseline (If that makes sense lol).

For example, The below report is close to what I want, it tells me each and every update thats missing but I just want a summary.

Compliance 7 - Computers in a specific compliance state for an update group (secondary)

So an example would be:

Computer1 - missing 10 updates
Computer2 - missing 12 updates

All per a specific software update group.

It needs to be something I can export to Excel, so it can even just be a SQL query.

I appreciate any help and thank you in advance :)

Many Thanks

Hello, I have been working on trying to repair a WSUS server role on my SCCM2012 server and I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the WSUS role from the Server 2012 R2 server. I am having problems with getting client computers to access and report into the server. I have run the Solar Winds WSUS diag tool and I keep getting these three errors. But, as I research it looks to me that these are all false positives. I am not sure what to do at this point as I have over 800 machines that have been in a Not Reported status for 4 days. I have looked at the GPO and everything looks correct. I have them pointing to http://SERVER:8530. I am not really sure what else I can look at. I feel this is more of an issue with IIS and the machines can't report back? Looking forward to any help.

Thank you!
-Mike

hi guys

Barring Microsoft' SCCM, I was looking for any other applications out there which offer you the ability to automate deployment of applications, and configurations, and enforce security rules?

Even if the latter one doesn't work, perhaps the deployment of applications across a network? Any advice or any good products you're using would be appreciated.

Thanks for helping

Hello Folks,
I'm tying to write a Poweshell Script to delete objects from AD as well as SCCM
so far i have to deletion part working but i'm trying to add the reports and this is where I need help

For AD I have the following
foreach ($ComputerNameAD in $CLIENT) { 

    # Echo remove from AD
    dsquery computer -name $ComputerNameAD|dsrm -noprompt >>C:\Temp\REPORTAD.csv

    # Echo Results
    Write-Host "Removed $ComputerNameAD from AD server." -ForegroundColor White -BackgroundColor Black
}

Open in new window

Howerver the CSV log file only writes the computers that were actually deleted but not the ones that failed

and for SCCM console i have this
foreach ($ComputerNameSC in $CLIENT) { 

    # echo remove from SCCM
    Remove-CMDevice -DeviceName $ComputerNameSC -Force
	if($?) {            
		Write-Host "Object named $ComputerNameSC was deleted successfully from SCCM">>c:\temp\ReportSCCM.txt
}   else {            
	write-host "There was an Error trying to delete object named $ComputerNameSC ">>c:\temp\ReportSCCM.txt
}
    # Echo Results
    Write-Host "Removed $ComputerNameSC from SCCM server." -ForegroundColor White -BackgroundColor Black
}

Open in new window


but it doesn't write anything to the report.
Now, with that said the command to delete doesn't give anything message, it only ask if you are sure to delete then it just jumps to the next line or proceeds with the next object if there's any...

Any ideas would be welcome or any other method that will perform the same task. thanks for looking

Hello -

I am using SCCM 2012 and trying to create a 'Application deployment'  within 'SCCM Device Collections', that applies to Office x86 versions and x64 specifically. I am trying to created a membership rule to set specific objects from a query, hence only deploying to Office x86 (for one deployment) and x64 (for another). One deployment will be for x64 systems and also by computer name/department. The second deployment will be for x86 systems.

How would I set this up? I appreciate your help and thank you so much for your time!

I am trying to automate the setup of site servers. I can get as far as making a server a distribution point, but we have 2 other roles that we assign to our site servers that I can't figure how to add in powershell so far.

The two roles are:
Component server

Hello,
I have a task sequence that joins windows 10 deployments to domain. I recently found that a few deployed pcs were in workgroup. I checked my Task Sequence and verified credentials were good to go, but as soon as  I verified, closed, opened to verify again I got this error:
join domain error

I know for a fact that the sequence was working, becuase my previous pcs I had to add to workgroup to change and back to domain to change the names. I know I can just leave the task sequence if i am changing the names after, but its just that I want it to work and right now not knowing or understanding this issue is killing me. suggestions of troubleshooting 101?
Thnx

I have recently run Windows patch and deployed to several of our machines. I am trying to figure out which machines I need to reboot this evening since I have a maintenance window scheduled. A lot of machines show up as Compliant. Does this mean those machines are all set? Do they simply need rebooted to finish applying the patch? I also have several machines which show up as unknown. What does this mean? Are they needing the patch re-applied?

Hi,

We use Automatic Deployment Rules to push out Updates. At certain times we need to push critical updates (zero-day) independently.  When we search for the updates under all software updates we see the pie chart of compliant, required, not-required and unknown. Is there a way to tell which computer  are required or compliant, the pie chart doesn't have anywhere to click, but seem there must be a way since it lists the exact computer amount that is required. When I look under deployments there is no information, assuming this is because we use automatic rules to deploy updates. Attached is an example. In some instances we see 15 computers required but want to know which ones to patch manually. Thanks in advance for you help.

Hi,

I am not that bad in Powershell scripting, but I really suck in VBS.
I need a custom detection method in SCCM which checks for a version number in the registry and check if a file DOES NOT exist.

If version number = X AND file does not exist Echo Installed

The file and the registry keys might be in different places depending on OS bit.

Can someone help with converting this Powershell Script to VBS?
Reason why I don't use the Powershell script for the detection method is because it needs to be signed. I would rather work with a VBS.


[boolean]$Is64Bit = [boolean]((Get-WmiObject -Class 'Win32_Processor' -ErrorAction 'SilentlyContinue' | Where-Object { $_.DeviceID -eq 'CPU0' } | Select-Object -ExpandProperty 'AddressWidth') -eq 64)
        
If ($Is64Bit -eq $True)
{
    [string]$appInstalledVersion = Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\PluginPackages\XenAppSuite\ICA_Client' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | select -ExpandProperty Version
    [boolean]$ssonsvr = Test-Path ("${env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\Citrix\ICA Client\ssonsvr.exe")
}
Elseif ($Is64Bit -ne $True)
{
    [string]$appInstalledVersion = Get-ItemProperty -Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PluginPackages\XenAppSuite\ICA_Client' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | select -ExpandProperty Version
    [boolean]$ssonsvr = Test-Path ("$env:ProgramFiles\Citrix\ICA Client\ssonsvr.exe")
}


if (($ssonsvr -eq $False) -and ($appInstalledVersion -eq "14.7.0.13011"))
{
    Write-Host "installed"

Does anyone know of a SQL query that can be run against the SCCM database to pull out the information that can be found on the "update" tab on the endpoint protection client on each device, namely I need the results to return device name, definitions created on, definitions last updated, virus definition version, spyware definition version.

Is there a way to generate a report for All microsoft products and usage? I cant find one in the reports for something like that

I need a way to "cross match" a list of all devices in our domain to the SCCM security reports to ensure all clients are being actively reported on in terms of endpoint protection status and patch (windows update) status. Which standard SCCM reports would show a list of all devices and their status, so I can export them and cross match to other AD reports? or are we going to have to pull this information from the underlying SCCM database?

Following up on previous question https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29001886/SCCM-2016.html

If I install SQL 2016 on same server where I am planning to install System center 2016, would  SQL installation modify schema on domain for SQL server, as my production SQL still uses 2008 Ent and it is critical for all our website.

Also, how easy it is to remove SCCM, if it does not perform they way it is supposed to. Does it need extensive cleaning of metadata for SQL and SCCM after removal and unjoining VM from domain?

Our previous environment was with Config Manager 2012R2.  We had a CAS and two primaries.  Those three servers are in readonly mode due to Microsoft trying to fix an issue we had with replication.  Microsoft cannot fix the issue or get them back out of readonly mode.  I have spun up another SCCM server and have installed Current Branch onto it.  I am using just a Primary site, as we do not need a CAS or the 2nd primary.  I have pushed out the client with the new SiteCode to 9 test computers, successfully.  I have created two packages and deployed them successfully to one of the test machines.  

I have set up a Software Update Point on the new Current Branch server.  I have the sync settings set to Synchronize from Microsoft Update.  The updates synced yesterday (it took 4.5 hours).  However, when I deploy to the clients, the WUAHandler.log displays the following entries:
4/27/2017 10:09:45 AM      Its a WSUS Update Source type ({91AF792C-F745-433A-8D97-A7E0344FAF1E}), adding it.      WUAHandler      4864 (0x1300)
