  2. hi all, Most of you are deploying Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 in an automated fashion, some of you will use or are using SCCM 2007. I've put together a list of some of the step by step System Center Configuration Manager guides i've created to help those of you who are starting with SCCM and for those of you using SCCM in a lab environment, hopefully this will make it easier for you to find the area that interests you. The main areas are * Setup SCCM * Updating SCCM * Deploying Windows Updates using SCCM * Deploying Applications * Deploying OS * Capturing OS * Task Sequences * Migrating Data using USMT * Asset Intelligence * Troubleshooting and Other I hope that these guides help you to get your Lab up and running in record time and prepare yourself for Production. If you would like to contact me directly about this then reply to this topic or send me a pm, I'm happy to help. cheers Niall.

  5. sorry for the delay in replying, i've been busy. i'll try and answer some of your questions, as to your questions: 1. i'd say yes, pretty much, but you'll have to test/verify this, Microsoft offer a VHD of the SCCM 2007 r2 release, test it, it's free to test, but in reality you\ll want to setup a real lab and test it in steps (sccm is huge) 2. wake on lan yes, hibernate ? don't know, but if you can script something then yes via software distribution (packages) a. no idea, b yes 3. no, but you can re-image via pxe, slower but can achieve same thing, almost... 4. ask your Microsoft rep 5. as above 6. yes, absolutely 7. there isn't a feature to broadcast messages per se, but you can advertise a package containing anything you want, to any computers that you define in a collection b. as above, expect linux/mac pcs have to be managed with the addition of a plugin for SCCM via Quest
  6. in my guides, i've had the roles all together but that's just for a lab environment, in production you can separate the roles, see this post for some info about that, I'd suggest you start reading Technet to get an idea of how your subnets can work with SCCM, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680397.aspx cheers anyweb
  7. read this post to find out cheers anyweb

  13. product key issues with XP are usually related to the KEY type and media type, ie: a VLK key will only work with VLK *volume license key* media, and a retail key with retail media, same goes for OEM or MSDN media so what type of key are you using (is it one from the side of the pc, if it is it's OEM) and what type of CD did you use for the xp image ?
  14. is your goal to free up space on the DVD for some other stuff or what ?
  15. maybe you could delete the other CLG files on the dvd read more about them here cheers anyweb
