DOS Script to Reset Windows Update Agent

There comes a time when a workstation or server is not getting updates. Doesn't matter if its via Microsoft Update, WSUS, or even SUP. This is one of those things, that its better to use the broadsword approach, then spend a lot of time to diagnose and...

8dot3name Short File Name settings not enabled via ADK Partition Disk step in SCCM OSD 2012 SP1

We updated our SCCM 2012 environment to SP1 back in late January of 2013. About 6-8 weeks later I was escalated a problem that some Design software was not installing nor working correctly and they were blaming the image. Primarily, it was several Bentley apps such as ProjectWise. In digging into it we found that 8dot3name (SFN) were no longer enabled for the file system and these applications were installing or calling the executable via SFN.As part of the SP1 upgrade, it changes from using AIK (windows 7 base) to ADK (windows 8 base) for OSD deployments and Windows 8 does not enable 8dot3name by default. So when you deploy a system, the Partition Disk step creates the volume with no SFN support. Microsoft added native LFN support in the Windows 95/NT4 days via VFAT so in their defense ...
