If you are deploying a Cloud Management Gateway (CMG) in System Center Configuration Manager, and you are using a newly created Azure Subscription, you might see the following error when deploying the CMG:Resource Manager – Failed to list keys for storage <name of cmg> with status code: NotFoundIf you then navigate to the Activity log on the Resource Group for the subscription, you can see that the Microsoft.ClassicCompute resource provider is missing.This is a recent change (to my knowledge) that will affect all new Azure Subscriptions as the Azure Team has decided that the Microsoft.ClassicCompute will be disabled on all…

Update: This feature still requires Global Admin rights! You can change and configure all the settings as “Intune Administrator” but you can’t click “Save”… This is by design!As a consultant I do a lot of Intune and Windows Autopilot projects for both small and large enterprise customers. Most of the small customers will most likely just provide me with Global Admin rights, but normally that’s not the case for large customers.If I’m there to work with Microsoft Intune, then the Intune Administrator role should be just fine. But one of the first steps we need to do, is to enable…

Two weeks ago, at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Microsoft announced the public preview of Password-less phone sign-in. We enabled this feature right after the session in our company tenant, and we have all been super excited about this cool way of signing in. One big step closer to a more secure and password less world. This blog post will explain how to configure password-less phone sign-in and how to enable this feature for your users. Please note that this is still a pre-release feature. Prepare the Tenant First we need to install the latest version the of Azure Active Directory…

Yesterday I started a new Windows 10 1803 project with a customer. They want to start deploying Windows 10 1803 to new machines and also start upgrade existing Windows 10 clients to 1803. To upgrade existing clients, I’ve created a Task Sequence template that I’ve been using at many different customers in previous projects (including 1803). But yesterday I got the following error displayed in a Command Prompt during the deployment: winpeshl.ini file is present, but no commands were successfully launched. This could be caused by incorrect formatting or an invalid executable name. Please consult the documentation for more information.…

IntroductionThe Cloud Management Gateway (CMG) feature was first introduced in version 1610 as a pre-release feature. Last week Microsoft released 1802, and this feature is no longer a pre-release feature. We also now have the option to create the CMG using Azure Resource Manager (ARM).In this blogpost I will share some learnings that I got from migrating the first customer from an existing (Classic) CMG deployment to the new modern (ARM) deployment.Pre-Migration TasksThere is really not that much that needs to be prepared, but you should spend the 15-20 minutes it takes to read the following documentation before you start:Plan…

There are a few pre-requirements that need to be completed if you want to use co-management, and the most important one is that you need have your MDM authority in Intune set to Intune.The following are general prerequisites for you to enable co-management: Configuration Manager version 1710 or later Azure AD EMS or Intune license for all users Azure AD automatic enrollment enabled Intune subscription (MDM authority in Intune set to Intune)See all…

Sometimes when troubleshooting the Cloud Management Gateway (CMG) feature in System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) you need to access the IIS log files from the Virtual Machine that runs the cloud service. From the Azure Portal navigate to Cloud Services (classic) and select the Cloud Management Gateway service. Select Remote Desktop, and Enable Remote Desktop to the Service (Virtual Machine), and click Save. This will normally take 3-5 minutes to activate. When Remote Desktop Services has been activated, you can connect to the Virtual Machine by selecting Roles and Instances, and selecting the ProxyService (ProxyService_IN_0). Click Connect, to download the…
