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,

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

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

Do you require knowledge of active directory for SCOM

I believe SCOM 2012 does include configuration manager 2012 as well

Is it same as SCCM 2012? in that situation SCOM 2012 does the work for SCCM as well.

i believe SCOM 2007 does not have this feature

Is there any good documentation highlighting difference between SCOM 2005, 2007, 2012, 2016

Hello Folks,
I have the following scenario, I have few images working fine as far as deploying and distributed to my local distribution point. However, I didn't click "Copy the content in this package share on distribution points" -see capture1
Capture1.JPG
What would It happen IF I remove the wim from the source or I turned off that system source where it was initially taken from? -See capture2
Capture2.JPG
Isn't SCCM supposed to create it's own content once I uploaded to the distribution point or is it always drawing from the source?

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?

Hello:

I was looking to upgrade our SCCM 2012 installation I did several years ago to the R2 version as we will soon be adding Windows 10 clients to our network.  Our SCCM 2012 is running on Server 2008 R2 with SQL Server 2008 R2 SP3 and the SCCM itself has never had any service packs installed on it, so I was going to go to SP1 then SP2 and then jump to the R2 version.  I started with following the steps at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2801416/how-to-upgrade-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-to-sp1 and everything went well until I got to the actual install SP1.  When I started it, it gets to the prerequisite check and says that "Verify that the built-in collections have not been modified" and in the extended description it says that one or more built-in collections has been modified and modifications overwritten by the Configuration Manager setup and to make a note of the modifications so after the upgrade you can create new collections that have the same information."

So, I wanted to look at the Configuration Manager but when it starts it says it cannot connect to the site.  I tried manually connecting to the site using the 'Connect to site...' button but it doesn't connect.  I tried rebooting the server as well but did not help.  I looked in SmsAdminUI.log and here are the last several lines of logging:

[16, PID:6624][06/14/2017 13:39:35] :Property: 'License'\r\nSystem.Management.ManagementException\r\nNot found \r\n   at …

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
