SCCM-Script to get some MDT Variables

Hi All, Every time when I go to customer to perform Operating System Deployment, customer always ask about MDT, so I’m here to try to clarify things: – MDT is a great tool, however, it only does OS Deployment, nothing else. It also only does LTI (or Little Touch) – SCCM does what MDT does and much more, it does application deployment, inventory, compliance, as well as OSD (LTI as well as ZTI – Zero Touch) But why there is always this talk?!?! For companies that do not have any tool that can do OS Deployment, MDT can be used. it is really easy to install and configure, in couple of hours you can have an environment ready to start deploying your 1st Windows.

SCCM 2012 R2 & MDT 2013 – Pausing task sequence

Hi All, have you ever wonder why and how to pause a task sequence?? well…the why is simple, troubleshooting…but how, that is the complicated part… Actually not, and if you stop a bit and think, there are many ways: 1- create a script to wait many minutes (lets say, 120min), i think this is enough to do any troubleshooting 🙂 2- create a script to look for something (ie. a file) and when the file exist, it deletes and continue… 3- create a script… 4- create a script… as you can see, everything is down to a script, unfortunately, there is no “out-of-the-box” step to do it… but now that you know how to pause a TS (ok, you still don’t know how to create a script, do you?) let’s look at the options 1- create a script that waits for 120min… and if you finish your troubleshooting before?!?!!? you…
