How does that work for Work from home employees, is it slow? You should delete an unknown device record before you reimage the machine. When doing so, there are a number of considerations that must be taken into account. Another important consideration is the format in which you enter this information. Will it consider it as unknown computer and start Imaging it? I understand it's probably not your call though. Normally we would target workstation computers, but you can also target groups or particular users.
Only concern I'm unable to deploy the task sequence to known computer. I have zero trouble F12'ing a unknown computer and applyin drivers through auto detect, or through a driver package. A few apps installed on the build Office 2010 mainly A few more apps installed by the task sequence stuff that gets updated semi regularly and stuff that doesn't work as a ThinApp The rest are ThinApps deployed by user group so no install required. After the help that I had from previous questions, I have another one that someone might have the experience to give an opinion. I'd say it takes about 15-20 minutes to push the image to the computer. So go the days of our lives.
Now that means you'd have to import drivers for all of the hardware you use of course, and keep doing it when your clients get new hardware. Also, what kind of system is serving up the image? What I described here now is only the very basic way to accomplish this. Which reminds me, I have to build my Anniversary Update image. How can we image those machines if we do not know the computer name. Keep in mind though, that refreshing a computer involves many tricky steps.
We have data retention requirements that usually prevent us from just dumping the image on the user's machine if it's decided a rebuild is needed, so they either swap drives or just pull the whole box for rebuilds. People whose job it is helpdesk? Have to limit how many of those there are of course to not be a performance hit, but it's all about prioritization. This article simply points out some of the more common gotchas you are likely to encounter during the process. Why is everyone leaving things mostly manual? However, unknown computer imaging does require a bit of tweaking to make the process run smoothly. Your task sequence must include a method of installing the Configuration Manager client. If not, I'll manually install the client and see if they appear in Conflicting Records. We are in the process of upgrading all machines to Win10.
So go the days of our lives. Deployment of a new system from the start of the process to the system being at the user's desk and fully functional with all required applications working is at bare minimum two days for a rush job maybe one if there is only standard bare minimum software. This is a fancy way of saying that it needs to know about the computers that it is managing. Asked us if we still needed the laptop we requested last summer for one of our developers. Yesterday found this link: and tried it.
How long does the process take your shop start to finish? Look through the task sequence options and make sure they are all correct. Desktop and My Docs redirection is in effect for all users. Using this method, and running the user state migration tool in the task sequence to capture and restore user profiles, we were able to do 100% unattended upgrades to W7. One of the primary features of System Center Configuration Manager is its ability to distribute software packages to client computers. .
They were all imaged the same way, using the same image and using their old computer names. After it restarts, the machine boots up to the local admin account where I manually set the local admin password, add any domain users who will be using the machine, do a quick updates check for any new updates since hte last time the. You can select a task sequence if multiple devices are deployed, and you can assign a computer name before the installation occurs. How long does it take your team to deploy a new system, and why? We don't check the modqueue very often. You know what really sped up image creation for me? If I can concentrate purely on the task which is seldom the case around 2-3 hours mostly depending on Bitlocker.
I'm aware of the message that comes up normally with High risk deployment. It can be hard to get that piece in place if you don't have it already. It can do exactly what you want, the question is will the time investment be worth the payoff. We're running 100% Windows 7. Since your system a client computer in this case has already been deployed before, ConfigMgr already knows about it and therefor the Unknown Computer support will not pick it up.
Question for everyone that says it takes under 3 hours. Although this is technically possible, there is a process to follow and some pitfalls to avoid. You can restart the BitLocker Management Client Service to speed things up. I was paid in several 500 Euros bills, tax-free, under the table. When we update a computer to W7 we are using the same computer names as before.
