]]> <![CDATA[SCCM Package Task Sequence showing in Operating Systems]]> Mon, 10 Sep 2018 18:22:51 +0000 Patrick Kiley Hello Everyone!

I am in the process of building a task sequence for a package install.  The task sequence includes 11 steps:   install applications, copy files to c:\drive, enter an environment variable via the REG ADD.

As soon as I add a Restart Computer into the Task Sequence it ends up showing under Operating Systems in Software Center.

Is there any way to avoid this?  It needs to remain under Applications.

Thank you!





]]> <![CDATA[Powershell ForEach loop with embedded IF statements]]> Wed, 05 Sep 2018 09:54:04 +0000 sandeep kumar Hi all, I am Trained on SCCM Starting to write powershell scripts (very new) because SCCM tends to respond better to them (both client and server) So with the above stated here is my first script:
<pre class=”lang:default decode:true “>#Changes the ‘ProvisioningMode’ Key in the registry to False
$ProvisiongMode = New-ItemProperty -Path Registry::HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM\CcmExec -Name ProvisioningMode -Value False -Force
#Clears or ‘nulls’ the SystemTaskExcludes key in the registry
$SystemTaskExludes = New-ItemProperty -Path Registry::HKLM\SOFTRWARE\Microsoft\CCM\CcmExec -Name SystemTaskExcludes – Value “” – Force
$Success = “C:\Path\to.log”
$Failure = “C:\Path\to.log”
$Computers = Import-Csv “C:\Path\to.csv”
$SearchStr = Get-ItemProperty -Path Registry::HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM\CcmExec | select-object ProvisioningMode
$Online = Test-Conntection -Computername $ComputerName -Count 1 -Quiet

ForEach ($ComputerName in $Computers)
if ($Online -eq ‘False’)
Write-Output $ComputerNamet’Connection Failed’ >> $Failure
if ($SearchStr -eq True)


#Second Check
if ($SearchStr -eq ‘False’)
Write-Output $ComputerName
t’Registry has been changed’ >> $Success
The issue in question is the $Online variable. I would like to see if a computer is responsive to ping, if true then proceed to run $ProvisioningMode and $SystemTaskExclude. Then the other issue is querying that key to see if it changed. The issue with that one is $SearchStr = Get-ItemProperty -Path Registry::HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CCM\CcmExec | select-object ProvisioningMode returns
<pre class=”lang-bsh prettyprint prettyprinted”> <span class="typ">ProvisionMode</span>
<span class="pun">-----------------</span>
<span class="typ">False</span>

And I cant grab just the false data. Like I stated; very new at powershell and writing something that I will use helps me learn SCCM.

Edit: What I Have tried is
<pre class=”lang:default decode:true “>ForEach ($Name in $Computers)
Test-Connection -BufferSize 2 -Computername $Name.ComputerName -Count 1 -Quiet | Write-Output $Online

if ($Online -eq ‘True’) {Write-Output $Name`t’Computer is online’ >> C:\Online.txt}
And many variations of the same thing.
<pre class=”lang-bsh prettyprint prettyprinted”> <span class="typ">Test</span><span class="pun">-</span><span class="typ">Connection</span> <span class="pun">-</span><span class="typ">BufferSize</span> <span class="lit">2</span> <span class="pun">-</span><span class="typ">Computername</span><span class="pln"> $Name</span><span class="pun">.</span><span class="typ">ComputerName</span> <span class="pun">-</span><span class="typ">Count</span> <span class="lit">1</span> <span class="pun">-</span><span class="typ">Quiet</span>
Returns Data, which is what I want, but I need to input that into an If statement and still retain the $Name for the $StringStr and log files.

Those of you wondering, this takes the client out of provisioning mode when running an OSD. It fixes the ‘No Self-Signed Certificate’ issue.

]]> <![CDATA[Two SCCM Hierachies in same forest Desktops v Servers]]> Tue, 10 Oct 2017 22:35:34 +0000 Gman Hi all, really hope someone can help with some information please.

In our organisation we have complete separation between teams that manage the desktop estate and the server estate.

The desktop team already have an SCCM current branch deployment which is integrated into  the AD forest and used to manage a large desktop estate and some of their own servers.

For reasons I wont go into, we cannot picky back onto their deployment so we need to build our own separate SCCM current branch hierarchy. We would like to integrate it into the same AD forest but I am concerned about the impact this would have on the existing SCCM hierarchy such as overlapping boundaries.

I will also want to publish to another none trusted forest but they have no presence in that forest so that should not be an issue.

Is there any Microsoft or community guidance on this, I’m sure it must be a fairly common scenario in large organisations?
