SCCM 2012 RC2 – Install Console on Remote Client / Language Pack

The new release candidate 2 (RC2) is available, and there are small changes on this topic.

So that means, you can deploy the SCCM client with the languages you want, after this, install the Windows 7 language pack, change your display language, logoff/login, and after this you will get your SCCM client in the langauge of your choice. Continue reading

SCCM 2012 – Trace32.exe? No, CMTrace.exe!

In SCCM 2012, CMTrace.exe will replace the well known log viewer Trace32.exe. And now it’s an integrated part of the installation. On the first start of CMTrace, it will ask you, if this log viewer should be the default viewer for .log files.

On the server you will find the tool here: [SCCM2012InstallationPath]ToolsCMTrace.exe.

And the viewer is also available while OSD (Operating System Deployment). In this case, the path for x64 is:

[BootDiskDrive; usually x:]smsbinx64cmtrace.exe

And for x86 it is:

[BootDiskDrive; usually x:]smsbini386cmtrace.exe
