The Windows imaging server (ISCS-MDT) has been updated to include the Campus Labs Windows 7 image and all software included on that image. If lab computers come to the build bench for any reason and need to be re-imaged you can PXE boot to MDT as you normally would and select the Windows 7 master image under the Campus Labs section.
Task sequences are now associated with IP subnet. For example, if a computer PXE boots on the CN or ROOTS build bench you will see the task sequence selection screen. If a computer PXE boots in one of the computer labs MDT will perform what’s called a “zero-touch” installation and automatically re-image the computer. This assumes the IP range or individual workstations in Cyder are pointed at the OSU-MDT-PXE workgroup.
The ISCS-MDT server (used for Windows deployments at the build bench) has been moved to new core and to the same VLAN as the build bench in Milne. Anyone using a USB boot stick to do deployments will need to update. Some quick notes about the move:
– Cyder workgroups (DHCP options) OSU-MDT-PXE and OSU-MDT-PXE-UEFI have been updated with the server’s new IP address.
Old: VLAN 463, 10.198.0.68
New: VLAN 1112, 10.217.96.133
Note: Next week I will be asking NOC to configure IP helpers on the Milne building router. This will replace the workgroups above for the build bench, allowing any client (BIOS or UEFI) to PXE boot.
– MDT boot images have been updated to use the server’s FQDN/DNS name instead of IP address.
– The build bench firewall (CN2-FW) has been updated to allow the necessary ports through for remote management and OS deployment.
New Windows images with Office 2016 will go live tomorrow.
Windows 7/8.1: Added .NET 4.6.1, PowerShell 5.0, Office 2016 (replaces 2013)
Windows 10 CB/LTSB: Added Office 2016 (replaces 2013)
Added the following applications/packages to the MDT build share:
- All IE11 prereqs
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 for Win 7
- Created a custom deployment package with IEAK 11
- Microsoft .NET 4.6.1
- Microsoft Windows Management Framework 4.0
- Microsoft Windows Management Framework 5.0 for Win 7
- Microsoft Windows Management Framework 5.0 for Win 8.1
- Kernel Mode Driver Framework 1.11
- User Mode Driver Framework 1.11
These applications have been added to all applicable build task sequences to reduce manual work on reference images.
Tonight @ 10 PM we will be pushing an SCCM package to remove bad patch KB3114717 from Windows computers with Office 2013 32-bit or 64-bit installed. This push will not force a reboot.
Note: This patch has already been removed from WSUS and has been added to MDT for the build bench to run after builds have been completed.
This push will impact the following computers:
Devices with KB3114717 on Office 32-bit – SCCM Detailed Report
Devices with KB3114717 on Office 64-bit – SCCM Detailed Report
The following applications will be updated tonight via Ninite:
Flash IE + Firefox: 22.214.171.1246 -> 126.96.36.1996 (details)
Java: 8.0.710.5 -> 8.0.730.2 (details)
VLC: 2.2.1 -> 2.2.2 (details)
Internet Explorer 11 has been re-approved on the new WSUS server. A little over 2,000 computers should be receiving this update; customers have been notified.
All Windows users can expect to see ~1GB of updates, the majority of which are for Microsoft Office (details).
Note: These updates do require a reboot.
No issues to report.
