  1. We found after reviewing the recovery partitions that they all contained a volume name that we could exclude from reports and alerts. I didn't think about @DarrenWhite99 recommendation, which would cover the event that a manufacturer changes the name.
  2. We did something similar to how @Rafe Spaulding did it. Most machines were mobile laptops, so had to download to each workstation individually. First rolled out PowerShell v5 to utilize BitsTransfer through PS, provided the ability to download in the background on user machines during idle time and not on metered connections as most were sales people roaming the states and typically used hotspots. Downloaded the ISO's from Microsoft's Media Creation ToolKit website. A little trick, go to the website, switch in developer mode to emulate ipad/safari browser. It'll let you just download the iso you want. Saved those iso's to OneDrive and used BitsTransfer to download from a "anyone" shared link. We didn't have to worry about UAC as the upgrades ran silently in the background under the system account. The 7za trick is neat, we used a different 3rd party tool that mounted the ISO and extracted to a local directory via command line. Then of course had a friendly script that would run when the upgrade was ready to be started, it allowed the user to initiate the upgrade by clicking yes and counted the number of times users clicked no. Prompted each time the user clicked no and after X amount of times, the upgrade forced itself.
  3. I would suggest you investigate what is generating those services before you attempt to blacklist them.
  4. It looks like Windows Store Apps updates. What verison of LT Server you running?
  5. @RickDubs Is the patching policy properly applied to the second server? Is the Windows Update service malfunctioning? Is maybe one server in a pilot stage and the other in a production stage? Do both servers have the same exact hardware and driver sets? Some times patches are not approved for a specific set of hardware.
  6. @lgs141 Thanks, we played with that, but it just doesn't provide good feedback. Like we'd want to know if there's a file conflict when enabling protected folders. Or like etaylor said, it shows "NotInstalled" or we had another error reported when sync'ing was happening. Forget what the specific message was but it indicated that it was not configured. For now the best we found is to roll out the registry keys for automatically enabling OneDrive Sync, Protected Folders, and cross check the LastLoggedIn key. Maybe when I get adventurous enough, I'll work on something that utilizes the SyncDiagnostics.log file and breaks down results. %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\logs\Business#\SyncDiagnostics.log
  7. If you've figured out a way. Could you share the general details of how? Just starting to investigate this ourselves.
  8. I know this is an old thread and maybe you've figured out how. But we do a similar thing for large file downloads, due to being on a hosted plateform and not enough storage space on our L Drive. The keys to accomplish this is a publicly sharable link (With or without edit) and change after the last ? to ?download=1.
