When you are frequently deploying devices without a build-in network device, like MS Surfaces, DELL XPS devices and tablets, you know the burden of using USB-Ethernet adapters. These devices have their own MAC-address and when used repeatedly, you constantly have to remove the old devices to add new devices for deployment. Before SCCM CB version 1610 you could add these MAC-addresses to the registry by adding them to “ExcludeMACaddress” under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSMSComponents SMS_DISCOVERY_DATA_MANAGER
Apr 12, 2018 The Clients for Additional Operating Systems allow you to manage Apple Mac, UNIX and Linux computers using System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 and System Center Configuration Manager (current branch). The Parallels Configuration Manager Proxy then identifies the discovered resources as Mac computers, push installs Parallels Mac Client on them, and enrolls Mac computers in Configuration Manager.

From CB 1610 on you can now add these USB-Ethernet adapters to the field “Duplicate hardware identifiers”. The idea behind this is that you don’t have to remove the devices, associated with certain USB-Ethernet adapters, anymore. Underneath a short tutorial on how to add MAC-Addresses to the “Duplicate hardware identifiers”
Step 1. Open your Systemt Center Configuration Manager console and go to “Administration > Overview > Site Configuration > Sites” and left-click on “Hierarchy Settings” in the ribbon.
Step 2. Click on the tab “Client Approval and Conflicting Records”
Step 3. Click on “Add” to add your MAC-addresses to the field “Hardware ID’s”.
Step 4. When you have added all your MAC-Addresses you can close all windows by clicking “OK”.
Now you can keep using your USB-Ethernet adapters without removing the old associations with the devices you used them on before.
Any questions or comments, please post them below! Happy deploying!!
Now, if you are a Mac user, you can give Easy Screen OCR a try. Just drag your mouse cursor to take a snapshot, then click OCR button. Wait for a second, you will get editable and copiable text grabbed from the picture. What you see in the picture is what you get from EasyScreenOCR for Mac. Text on pc for mac.

In what feels like 90% of all cases when a client computer does not run an SCCM OSD task sequence and states “PXE boot aborted”, it is because it has not been deleted from SCCM, which therefore has two client objects with the same MAC address in its database.
To find out, which entries these are, you can use a short SCCM query.
In SCCM, go to Monitoring -> Queries and create a new query. Name it reasonably and click Edit Query Statement -> Show Query Language. There, paste the following query:
Manage Macs With Sccm
When you run the query by double-clicking, enter the MAC address in the standard format with colons (00:00:00:00:00:00) and you will easily find duplicate client entries.
