A very good site for that problem.


Today I was thinking I get crazy. I was sucessfully booting with PXE, but run into one error. I was fixing that, but after that I was not able to boot again with PXE boot.


If you come from SCCM 2007 you would now know what to do, but I need a couple of hours to see and fix the problem.

In the collection All Desktops and Server Clients find the device(s) named Unknown. Right-click and delete the and you are done and are able to boot again with PXE.

Another thing was our SCCM 2012 environment. The easiest way to upgrade is to do an inplace upgrade. What you have to do if you are using multiple languages in your SCCM, you have to remove it bevore you upgrade. If you finished you can start the upgrade process beginning with the central site. I am not sure if you have to begin with the primary site or not, but I dont think it makes big difference and we have with the way of central site and then primary site no problems.




If everything wen’t well you will have an error in the upgrade log file, which you can safely ignore.



Today we have difficulties to change or better to upgrade to the new VMM 2012 RTM. What I did is to solve that problem is to change the Database Version from RC (3.0.5007.0) to the final version edition (3.0.6005.0). See below. After that the upgrade was working perfectly.


Happy new VMM 2012 RTM and don’t forget to upgrade the VMM hosts! Zwinkerndes Smiley

Today I get the following error if I wanted to try in a LAB the Remote Assistance in SCCM 2012 RC2


The problem was easy to solve. You need to set the “Manage soliciated Remote Assitance settings” to True. Otherwise the Remote Assitance will just work if your customer is sending you a Remote Assistance offer.


Smiley Good Luck.

Today I found a really nice overview about the new Hyper-V 3.0 Components.

“Provides a visual reference for understanding key Hyper-V technologies in Windows Server “8” Beta and focuses on Hyper-V Replica, networking, virtual machine mobility (live migration), storage, failover clustering, and scalability.” (c) Microsoft Corp.

Here you have a good overview. If you print that PDF, please make sure that you have at least an A3 printer.

Weltbild / Hugendubel TrekStor eBook Reader 3.0


  Ich möchte die Gelegenheit nützen über diesen eBook Reader meine eigene 

  Erfahrung schreiben. Diesen eBook Reader gibt seit geraumer Zeit (ca.

  Oktober 2011) zu kaufen. Auf der Homepage wird mit dem folgenden Slogan

  geworben: “Der beste eBook Reader zum besten Preis”.

  Im Internet wird viel negatives und wenig positives über dem eBook Reader

  berichtet. Allerdings kann ich vieles nicht nachempfinden und versuche hier


in dem Artikel die Vorteile näher zu bringen. Besonders für Personen, die nicht genau wissen ob sie das Gerät kaufen sollen oder nicht. Ist ja schließlich kein Wunder, weil es soviele unterschiedliche Arten von Geräte gibt, wie etwa Amazon Kindle, TrekStor, CAT, iPad, Samsung Galaxy TAB etc.
