After the creation of Win 10 OS package it shows that the package cannot be distributed to DP:

Distribution Manager is waiting for package content to be prestaged on the distribution point ["Display=\\. You must manually prestage the package  on the distribution point before the content will be available.

To  resolve this issue it is necessary to uncheck::

Issue with pushing SCCM Client 2012 to client machine using SCCM 2012 console

There is an issue when the SCCM 2012 client is pushed using SCCM 2012 console.

Here is the message on the client machine:

GetHttpRequestObjects failed for verb: 'CCM_POST', url: 'HTTPS://  /ccm_system/request'
GetDPLocations failed with error 0x87d00280
Failed to get DP locations as the expected version from MP 'HTTPS:// '. Error 0x87d00280
Failed to get client version for sending state messages. Error 0x8004100e

Here is the error message reported on SCCM Server:

---> Unable to connect to WMI (root\ccm) on remote machine "", error = 0x8004100e.

Execute query exec [sp_CP_SetLastErrorCode] 2097152001, 0


Changing to use HTTP Client communication helped to eliminate the error message related with the certificates.

After trying to push the client again there were new error messages on clients log:

FindAvailableSource failed with error 0x80004004
Failed to get client version for sending state messages. Error 0x8004100e
ITaskService::GetFolder failed with 0x80070003
CcmSetup failed with error code 0x80004004


 Source \\SCCM2012.MTFailed to find accessible source. 
Waiting for retry.L.LOCAL\SMSClient is inaccessible (67)

Switching both DP an MP to HTTP helped to resolve the issue;

SCCM 2012 client was installed successfully:

Uninstalling silently SP 2 (Service Pack) for Microsoft Office 2010

Uninstalling line of SP 2 for MS Office 2010 can be found in registry:

Uninstalling string contain:

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14\Oarpmany.exe" /removereleaseinpatch "{90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}" "{DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B}" "1033" "0"

Applying this string in CMD doesn't provide silent uninstall. Tried separately Oarpmany.exe with help switch doesn't show any silent switches.

Workaround for silent uninstall of SP2 for Office 2010 was to apply the following command:

MsiExec.exe /package {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /uninstall {DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B} /qn

where {90140000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} is Office 2010 GUID and {DE28B448-32E8-4E8F-84F0-A52B21A49B5B} is SP2 GUID specified in the uninstall string.
