  1. There are couple of ways to check that, easiest what I found is using this PowerShell command: $MUSM = New-Object -ComObject "Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager" $status = $MUSM.Services $status | select name, IsDefaultAUService IsDefaultAUService will give you values for "Windows Server Update Service" and "Windows Update". One will be true, easy to analyse to check which one is your default Automtic update service set for device.
  2. The easiest way to understand this - is to distribute a small package and monitor the progress through distmgr.log immediately with time stamp. I hope you are using cmtrace.exe tool (not notepad), also make a note of thread ID in distmgr when you start distributing the content, so that you are 100% sure you are tracking the same package. It's not difficult, the content info for distribution will not be too much, once you go through it couple of times you will be easily able to understand it.
  3. If DP is installed on a server which is not a primary site, then look for distmgr.log on Primary site. On Distribution point look for smsdpprov.log under d:\SMS_CCM\logs. It seems the DP installation went fine as SCCM content library folder and all supported folders got created. Check the installation status through smsdpprov.log. Another way to check installation status is through Monitoring \ Distribution status \ distribution point configuration status

  8. This all depends upon the hardware inventory. Check Client settings > Hardware inventory. This might be set to 5 or 7 days, if you want to device to send the info faster reduce the Hardware inventory schedule, but beware of additional load you will be increasing on Management point and Database as all devices will start sending the info based upon the settings you have specified.
  9. Windows 11 might be the upgrade for your device as it comes with few requirement such TPM 2.0 and others. Run the PowerShell script provided by microsoft to check Windows 11 hardware readiness https://www.manishbangia.com/windows-11-hardware-readiness-check-powershell-script/ There is a PC health check also available which can be downloaded from MS site, the file name is WindowsPCHealthCheckSetup.msi which can be downloaded from aka.ms/getpchealthcheckapp
  10. It seems you are not pressing F12 (PXE Boot sequence) correctly on time. I would say hit F12 or Fn+F12 multiple times so as not to miss pxe boot process initiation. Other thing to check is to look into BIOS. If you are still struggling to do PXE, try changing boot sequence with LAN / Ethernet on the top.
  11. Microsoft has recently announced changes in lots of product categories. Hope this will help you.
  12. Use following portal to give feedback or suggestion to Microsoft Intune team. Microsoft Intune · Community This also comes handy on what others are looking for in Intune. Definitely a page to be bookmarked if you are into intune.
  13. Prevent systems from getting upgraded to Windows 11 To prevent system from Windows 10 to upgrade to Windows 11, we need following registry changes: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate "ProductVersion"="Windows 10" (REG_SZ) "TargetReleaseVersion"=dword:00000001 (REG_DWORD) "TargetReleaseVersionInfo"="21H1" (REG_SZ) ProductVersion can be used as: “Windows 10” “Windows 11” TargetReleaseVersion: setting value to 1 means we are locking / enabling the OS version upto a specific OS Build /version. TargetReleaseVersionInfo: setting up the version such as “21H1”, “21H2” etc. This can be achieved through Group Policy as well: Navigate to Local computer policy > Computer configuration > Administrative models > Windows components > Windows update > Windows Update for Business (newer name: Manage updates offered from Windows Update) Select the target feature upgrade version to Enabled Set Which Windows product version would you like to receive feature updates for? - "Windows 10" Target Version for Feature Updates: 21H2
