Site Problems

Sorry to all those that have tried to contact me via the contact form, for some reason hotmail has been blocking emails from anyone not in my address book for what seems to be some time. I have no idea why or when they started this. I have changed the destination address for the contact form to another of my email accounts, so hopefully this has solved the problem. If you tried to contact me in the past and I have not replied it is most likely due to this. Please try again and I will respond, if you do not get a reponse please add a comment to this post so I know you have tried to contact me.



Dump Variables during OSD

A while back I had a support case open with MS about some scripting in winPE. In order to debug the problem we wanted to see what variables were declared & what their values were. The support tech came up with the attachted script, I never got round to adding it to my scripts folder, so I ran it by opening a command shell in winPE (F8) then “net use Z: \\\c$\users\\desktop\”. Then I ran the script with “cscript.exe SCCMVarDump.vbs” a file is created in the same location as the script.

Dell & HP Warranty Info in SCCM

Updated: 2011-08-18

This is the next evolution in the warranty info fight, Dell keep changing their site which is rather frustrating. I have re-written the Warranty Info Scripts in powershell as in my opinion the code is a lot cleaner and more manageable, I’ve tweaked the MOF edit required to read this.

One major change to the script is that I have added support for HP systems, now I must stress I only have one or two of these, both are out of warranty and only had base warranties so something may have been missed / may not work as expected. You can either fix it and let me know the changes you make or let me know, via the contact page, the tag of one of your systems and I will look at it when I get a chance.

If you use any other version of the script from my site you will need to update sms.mof as the reports have changed.

I am quite shameless so if you find this useful feel free to click on donate and well, donate. :D

What info do you get?
