To migrate an MDT 2010 Task Sequence, you need to integrate MDT 2012 with the ConfigMgr 2012 site. But the wizard can only migrate MDT…

When troubleshooting OS Deployment in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, I really miss the state messages from the advertisement status in ConfigMgr 2007. You can find the same information in reports, but for this scenario, I really prefer the Status Messages. This guide will help you create a Status Message Query for a Specific Deployment ID. First you need to get the deployment ID of the Task Sequence you wish to monitor. Monitoring -> Overview -> Deployments. (The Deployment ID are not displayed by default). Navigate to the Status Message Queries: Monitoring -> Overview -> System Status -> Status Message…
