How to use SCCM Dynamic Queries in your Deployment Collections

Stephane FaubertSCCM7 Comments

In this post we will be looking at using SCCM dynamic queries to populate collections in our deployments. As a SCCM administrator, you most likely had to plan out mass deployments to all your servers or workstations or even both. How did you go ahead and populate your collections? Queries? Since the introduction of SCCM 2012, we now have a multitude of options, most notably: Direct membership Queries Include a collection Exclude a collection Chances are, if you are deploying a new software to be part of a baseline for workstations (for example), you will also add it to your task sequence. In my passed life, I must admit, I really did like queries. They can be such a powerful tool to populate your collections. I always was looking for ways to pimp the usual types of queries we use.

Failed to resolve selected task sequence dependencies 0x80040104

Benoit LecoursOSD, SCCM6 Comments

I had to troubleshoot a problem where a Task Sequence return the error Failed to Run Task Sequence. SMSTS.log shows : Failed to resolve selected task sequence dependencies 0x80040104 Not big of a deal, this error oftently occurs. It just means that some package referenced by a task sequence is not distributed to the distribution point. This should be an easy fix… well not in this case. Troubleshooting When reading SMSTS.log we can find the problematic package ID. In this case KR100048 was the bad guy. So I did the basic troubleshooting in those cases : Open the SCCM Console Navigate to Software Library\Operating Systems\Task Sequences Click Reference tab at the bottom Locate the problematic ID (KR100048) Note the package Name (Windows x64 – HP ProBook 650 G1) First problem : the Size column is 0.00MB ?!? I immediately thought that I’ve probably forgot to distribute this package on my distribution point. … Read More

Benoit LecoursPowershell, SCCM2 Comments

We have recently experienced a SCCM 2012 management point error 1603. Scenario : Installing a new MP gives an error 1603 SCCM 2012 R2 Windows 2012 R2 The first thing to check is the MPSetup.log, you can see the error 1603 but you have not much information about what’s the problem really is. You have to dig deeper in the MPMsiLog.LastError to see the root cause.                     As you can see the error is cause by a previous version of the client being installed on the server. My environment had SCCM 2007 configured with the client push so my 2007 client was installed.                                         I’ve removed the client using ccmsetup /uninstall and remove the MP role.
