SCCM 2016

Q: SCCM 2016

So, I had errors occurring in SCCM (Version 1702), and not being able to login to the SQL database, I decided it was easier to do a complete reinstall of SCCM with a new instance of SQL 2016.. However I've now got different issues that I'm having trouble resolving.

We're only a small organisation with around 300 PC's, but spread over several locations. Initially in SCCM I had the client pushed out, several DP's, and Windows 7, and 10 both being deployed as well with no issues. Since the reinstall I have been unable to get the client to install on any PC's - even new ones that have never had the client previously, I'm also unable to pxe boot.

I've distributed both the x64 and x86 boot images, enabled PXE on the DP, the options in DHCP are still there from the previous install obviously but for reference option 67 is "smsboot\x64\wdsnbp.com"

The client gets the initial boot file from the server, then instead of loading WinPE I get:

"The Windows Boot Configuration (BCD) file from the PXE server does not contain a valid operating system entry. Ensure that the server has boot images installed for this architecture"

I've read that turning off PXE on the DP, then waiting and re-enabling it will work, however it hasn't done so for me.. I wonder if this and the client not being installed anywhere are linked to the same problem.

I'll apologise in advance if that seems a little vague, but I'm fairly new to SCCM. Can anyone offer a suggestion to what I may have missed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have tried to install the HP Client Integration Kit (2.4.1.1) on a server running SCCM 2016, however the installation fails.  In the release notes, it states that SCCM 2012 R2 is supported, but there is no mention of SCCM 2016. Can somebody from HP provide a statement on whether the HP Client Integration Kit will support SCCM 2016 and when? thanks

Hi All
 
i'm trying to turn on TPM via a task sequence set whilst building the machine via SCCM 2012
 
I have included the following cmd as a step in the task sequence:
 
cscript.exe SetConfig.vbs SecurityChip Active
 
then use a 2nd step in the task sequence to enable  bit locker encryption and use TPM.
 
Now step 2 works fine as we have used this on our previous HP laptops, but it will not work on the lenovo's Am i missing something in the first step of the task sequence?

I've been trying to set SCCM 2016 up so I can use it to deploy OSs via PXE boot. But I just CANNOT get my client machines to boot correctly. It keeps booting to WDS and not SCCM. I enabled PXE boot (all options and password) on the distribution point, enabled DHCP on a separate server, and distributed both boot images and enabled PXE support on them as well. Also, when I create the Task Sequence and go to distribute it, it allows me to deploy it (PXE and boot media only), but does NOT give me any distribution points to distribute it to. After hours of rebuilding my VM network (Windows Server 2016 Standard running in a VMWare Workstation 14 environment), reinstalling and re-configuring everything, I STILL can't get my client machines to boot correctly. Do I even need WDS installed? If so, how am I supposed to configure it for SCCM PXE boot? Do I configure it before or after I install SCCM? I just can't seem to find a nice, clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide on how to properly set all this up. PLEASE HELP!!!

Heyye.
 

A:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

Have a look here for Avast and Bitdefender info:

I understand its Free vs Paid product comparision but anyway
 

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!
Thanks

So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

In my opinion, Norton gives you a better protection. He has SONAR( Behavior protection), very good feature.
Fsecure uses Bitdefender engine but isn't the best AV according AV Comparatives.
Norton is light, has strong firewall, good signatures and cloud reputation + Sonar protection for zero-day threats.

We're using SCCM to configure all our notebooks with Windows 10 and using BCU in a tasksequence to configure the correct settings. With both the 820 G3 and the 850 G3 we've run into a problem with activating bitlocker automatically. This happens because a BIOS setting, which was available on the previous models, is missing: Activate TPM on next boot: Enable Why this setting is needed is explained here. Without this option, enabling bitlocker automatically from a tast sequence fails which results in a lot of manual work after SCCM is finished. Until now, I've found no alternative to accomplish this so it seems that the new Elitebooks can't be deployed in a professional way (in a corporate setting). I hope that I'm overlooking something here or that HP will bring back this setting in a future BIOS update?
