comment What, exactly, is the SCCM client doing when it installs an .msi for a system?
@alx9r Sure. Make sense. But if works via psexec but doesn't through SCCM you could do something super hacky and just have the client call psxexec... I may or may not do this... :(

@alx9r Yeah. There's more than one way to skin a cat... er Application. Apparently. I love the Application-Program model, better detection logic, supercedence, Application Catalog, etc. For crappy (uh "creative") MSI installers I just use the Script Installer Deployment Type and call msiexec directly (or alx9r could use psexec).

Ah. Disregard. I had it the other way around. I was thinking Win32_Product vs. Win32_AddRemovePrograms. blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2012/04/19/…

Add or Remove Programs is special - I can't remember why but it has something to do with the WMI classes being regenerated? Is it possible your software installs fine but just doesn't register in Add or Remove Programs? @bighomie - What's your thoughts?

Excellent SCCM question! Come join @BigHomie and I - custodians of the [sccm] tag. There are literally a couple of us.

@Basil - Yep. Literally "snapshot full". The Alarms are being generated by NetApp OnCommand DataFabric Manager 5.0.0.7636.

comment Removing SCCM Offline Servicing schedules without a next run time
@P.Turpie "It doesn't make sense" Many things in SCCM don't make sense. If you want to dig deeper I'd suggest a support call but there's no recourse that I can see. The product is working "as designed".

comment Removing SCCM Offline Servicing schedules without a next run time
@P.Turpie I don't think you can run re-occurring Offline Image Servicing. It is a one time shot - either "now" or at a custom scheduled time.
