Automated association of win xp & win 7 systems for Replace scenario's in SCCM 2007.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi all,

    we are working on replace scenario currently & have imported few xp & win 7 machines in different collections using CSV files.

    the only part we are stuck is on the association of these machine ,we don't want to do it manually we want to have an automated process which does this work so that after the machine association we can run the Replace TS.

    Can we do this in SCCM 2007 or do we need scripts for this process.

    Thanks

    Pranay.

  • Hi,

    There are som examples covering this in the SDK, for instance here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc146283.aspx that should get you going.

  • thanks for the reply,

    the code used here is just for a single computer association at a time can we do this for multiple number of computers.

    like checking the names of XP and Win 7 machines and associating multiple machines at once.

    thanks

  • Not sure what you're after here. Someone has to pick the source and destination systems -- there is no way for ConfigMgr to determine this so there must be some manual intervention or some other criteria involved that can be used to create the associations.

  • exactly that's the thing i am talking about how can i use my condition here.

    Consider if there is a xp & win 7 collection xp machine names start with Winxp1,2,3... & win 7 names start with win71,2,3...

    we want to associate Winxp1 with win71 and so on...

    Is there a script which does this or close to this.

    Thanks

    Pranay.

  • Hi,

    I haven't seen such a script,but scripting the association as you wrote should be possible but you need to create the script yourself using the SDK which I pointed out above:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc146283.aspx
