ConfigMgr Software Update scanning failed with OnScanComplete with error=0x80244017

Scanning, deploying and installing software updates should be a walk in the park, and most of the times it is. But (luckily) sometimes we run into issues that we haven’t seen before. Like in this case where clients stopped scanning for software updates in ConfigMgr 1602. What I have learned in my years working with […]

Android OS version not on the requirement list

Managing mobile devices can be different compared to managing traditional computers for many reasons. One of them being the lack of control with operating system versions on the devices. We simply don’t control when Android and iOS devices are being upgraded and as such we don’t control what version users are using. That can be […]

Win PE Peer caching in ConfigMgr Current Branch

There are so many reasons for migrating your environment to ConfigMgr CB (current branch), one of them being the new content management feature – Win PE Peer caching. To me it’s important to understand what the feature is bringing to the table, and what it is not. Win PE Peer caching is introduced to save […]

ConfigMgr Client failing to install on Management Point

In ConfigMgr Current Branch, version 1511/1602 you have a new pre-production client upgrade feature that allows you to test the new client install on a pre-preproduction collection. The feature works like a charm and allows you to gain control over the upgrade process by testing first. However, while testing the new client, you might run […]

Configuring backup in ConfigMgr Current Branch

With the introduction of Configuration Manager Current Branch (CB), the game of backup has changed slightly.  A SQL backup is still valid for restoring the database, but re-installing ConfigMgr CB must be started by running setup.exe from the cd.latest folder. I know most of you are backing up the virtual machine (which is good), but […]

Why cmtrace is a man’s best friend when deploying Win 10 1511 upgrades using Configuration Manager

ConfigMgr 1511 is a great Win10 management tool, and so far the only real enterprise management tool I have seen when it comes to deploying Win 10 1511. There is a minor UI issue that might make you freak out. When downloading the upgrade our Download Software Updates Wizard is not really moving although everything […]

Windows 10 Servicing in ConfigMgr 1511

Playing around with Windows 10 Servicing in ConfigMgr 1511 is kind of cool. But having said that; you might want to know the consequences of creating custom servicing plans. A servicing plan is basically an automatic deployment rule with a twist. The twist being (right now), you are unable to filter on the updates being […]

Why cmtrace.exe is not always your best friend

I once heard a very wise guy saying the notepad is all you need to read log files. I do not say I agree, as I find cmtrace a slightly better tool…. but that’s right until I ran into a ConfigMgr 2012 upgrade to ConfigMgr 1511 earlier today. My upgrade failed, during the file copy […]

Windows WI-FI profiles

Currently working on an Enterprise Mobility project, and thought I should share a little trick. In the project; we are deploying WI-FI profiles to Windows 10 devices. Some WI-FI profiles use SCEP/NDES certificates while others are configured using a pre-shared secret. When working with Windows WI-FI profiles, the only way to add a pre-shared secret […]
