    My SCCM 2007 is up and running

    In the past I have used WDS for large deployments of laptops. I recently have moved to SCCM 2007 on a Windos 2003 server. I have also tried on Windows 2008 server. Both works. I have tried SCCM on Domain controller and on member server. All works. The deployment is successful now. I am now deploying large number of laptops again. I just need to PXE boot and the rest is done without any intervention. Joining OU is automatic, laptop naming is automatic, driver integration is very easy. Forefront End Point Protection is integrated in the SCCM console and easy to deploy. Windows updates are easy to deploy as well.

    I am not an expert on this product. I did face problems at every step. But step by step I have overcome all problems and now I have a functioning SCCM. I did a bit everyday. Watching youtube videos, windows-noob website and this site has helped me on the way.

    If anybody is planning to deploy SCCM 2007 then you can ask me questions. I do not know all answers. But will try to help.

    I am on holiday now. When I am at school I will answer your question. The server is not infront of me now.

    If you want to make good use of SCCM in a school environment you need to spend a lot of time learning bit by bit. You could in fact wipe an entire network if used incorrectly. But it works great when it works well

    A quick question for people using SCCM. Is it supposed to take literally hours to deploy a package to clients even though I have selected "run as soon as possible" on the schedule on the advertisement?

    Thanks

    no, sounds like you have your BITS set to like 20kbps, which means things will take a long time.... Go to "Computer Client Agent", under Client Agents, under Site Settings, click the BITS tab and see if throttle is ticked at the bottom and if it is increase the transfer speed or tell it not to throttle

    Thanks, made some tweaks so hopefully it will speed things up.

    Also i used to work for a place that had a script (run from the client) that would force the install of advertised programs. Does anyone have anything like this please?

    Do you have any plans to upgrade to SCCM 2012 now that it has been released?

    Ive been running some tests on it, transferring the setup I have now to 2012. It will be a Summer project if I do it. Some more tests with the RTM version...

    Its not officially released yet... is it?

    by the way it maybe down to the refresh of when it does a machine retrieval policy. I set mine to 15 minutes instead of the basic 60 minutes.

    Same with us, except we've never used SCCM before.

    I am setting up SCCM here and I have got to the point where the TS is called

    Task Sequence Wizard
    Select Task Sequence

    but at the moment this is where my install fails with a message about a missing package. Time to create a new task sequence.
