SCCM R2 SP1 Deployment Task Sequences Bug


Have you deployed a Task Sequence in SCCM R2 SP1 and then cannot see it when you PXE boot your machine? Well, this is a bug and it is very easily fixed.

All you need to do is go through your normal process of creating and deploying a Task Sequence, but after you have created the deployment, you need to go back into it and amend the “available from” date and time. This is due to a bug in the system in relation to time zones (apparently!).

So, go into your deployment, click the “Scheduling” tab and change the date to a few days ago and click ok:

You should now see that your deployment is available to you now!
