Jonathan LefebvreSCCM6 Comments

One of the common mistakes we still see is having SCCM Move Content Library folders on many different drives, most of the time not on purpose.

Benoit LecoursOSD, SCCM28 Comments

For this post, I’ve built a little scenario to explain how to use SCCM Collection variables in Task Sequence. I get often asked how to reduce the number of SCCM task sequences and how to make them dynamic. I’m always surprised when I hear from an SCCM administrator that they don’t use variables in their task sequence. Let’s say you are working in an international company and use SCCM to deploy operating systems. Each office has its own configuration and specific software to install. You decide to create 1 task sequence per office. Wrong! You’ll end up in a management nightmare. … Read More

Here’s a simple tip to know which SCCM server logs files to check if you want to dig an error returned by an SCCM Component.
