ConfigMgr Task Sequence “Deploy” greyed out

This is a quick post. Just notice two of my Task Sequence “Deploy” is greyed out. What?!?!?! It is Friday, and I am not really much want trouble shoot anything..So.. I click “Disable”..Then “Enable”. Wow, “Deploy” is green again. The TS was created on beggining of last year, I don’t remember what build of ConfigMgr I was using at that point. Perhaps after upgrade ConfigMgr builds so many times, some really old TS that was… 

SCCM: Workaround for CB1610 replica MP issue (sp_BgbConfigSSBForRemoteService)

Before you read this, please understand Microsoft does NOT supported this kind of direct SQL edit, so please do not use this “workaround” in production. This is also a knowing issue, hotfix from Microsoft will come later. UPDATED: KB4010155 update rollup fix this issue. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4010155/update-rollup-for-system-center-configuration-manager-current-branch-v     I have been testing replica MP based on https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh846234.aspx and https://sccmentor.com/2015/05/19/installing-a-replica-mp-in-configmgr-2012/ many months ago, using CB 1606. Everything works just fine. In this weekend I was trying to… 

SCCM OSD: Tweak OSDResults without UDI (Part 2)

As I mention early in SCCM OSD: Tweak OSDResults without UDI (Part 1), I will try write a part 2 of how to show up OSDResults without UDI step. Before you start to doing this, I will highly recommend you disable F8 debug mode in winpe boot image for your production environment, for security matter. Because the script is password involved. When you don’t use UDI to select what applications you want to install, you… 

SCCM OSD: Tweak OSDResults without UDI (Part 1)

After integrated MDT to SCCM, you can create MDT TS in SCCM. End of the TS, there is “OSD Results and Branding”, it should be use with UDI wizard, you can see in “Options”–“Condition” has set “SkipWizard” is NO. But I don’t want to UDI wizard, because we want “zero-touch”, or we already have our own wizard. What ever reasons they are…So I deleted those conditions. End of the deployment TS, OSDResults show up nicely.…

SCCM package copy file to C:\Windows\System32 folder

I know you are going to laugh why did I write this post, this is not new, but once again I forgot it and spent few hours wonder why my SCCM package didn’t work. (Maybe shouldn’t do any SCCM stuff after vacation. I was on one week holiday trip in Tenerife. :D) The job was simply, copy one file to C:\Windows\System32 folder use SCCM package, not application. What…it didn’t work ?!?! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ Why?!?! Well, because… 

SCCM Content Settings Tool 2.1 (PersistCache, BranchCache, FallbacktoDP, DownloadOnSlownetwork)

Fixed: 23.10.2016, Change “PeerCache” to “BranchCache”, thanks for Phil! (I remembered why did I put peercache in the beginning, when using Application SDMPackageXML, it use a keyword “peercache” to define BranchCache settings. ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Updated: 23.10.2016, Added Package (Advertised), so please download the tool again. I thought was easy to make this tool when I started to make it, but it took me almost three weeks. Had a bit troubles with those little checkboxes and…

Is this a good way to update ADK 1607 and custom boot image in SCCM?

NOTE: Read this article before you start do anythingย  https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/09/configuration-manager-and-the-windows-adk-for-windows-10-version-1607/ I don’t know if this is a good way to update ADK 1607 and custom the winpe.wim, that is how I did it. Since I have not been any MS events, classes or trainings. Honestly I have been only one day SCCM class in my career as an IT. So don’t trust everything what I said. ๐Ÿ™‚ PS. if this it not a correct way… 

SCCM Search Tool (beta)

Has been in my mind to make a new tool, just didn’t know what do I make. Finally on Friday I made up my mind to make a SCCM search tool. Some time ago when we were doing troubleshooting, reading sccm log files, and have no idea what those long numbers means, example: 674ab-eec5-40e1-a5f2-9. ๐Ÿ˜€ You need Admin Console installed and connection to SCCM server before you run the tool. This is just a beta,…
