Technet Webcast – Configuration Manager 2012 Compliance Settings 101

June 16, 2014 Leave a comment

Metro-EventTomorrow I will be delivering a Technet Webcast on Configuration Manager Compliance Settings. The session starts at 10.00 AM (GMT+1) and I will kick off with a short overview of this very powerful feature, then outline how to implement it, and also cover and demonstrate some practical scenarios.

This is the session abstract:

Compliance settings, formerly known as DCM, remains one of the often unexplored features in Configuration Manager. During this session we will walk through the new capabilities and improvements of this feature in ConfigMgr 2012, discuss implementation details, and demonstrate how you can  start using it to fulfill actual business requirements.

This week was a very busy and exciting one with the first edition of ITPROCeed taking place. All the effort put into the event by many paid off and the event was really a success – stay tuned for a short debrief somewhere next week.

In-between project work and the event preparations there were a few items that I did flag for further reading. Here they are outlined in this week’s review:

See you next week!

Time again for my weekly list of things to look further into:

  • Beginning of the week Microsoft has announced that it will be retiring Azure guest OS Family 1 images (Windows Server 2008). Retirement date is September 2nd. This is a concern for those having Configuration Manager implementation with cloud based Distribution Points. Currently recommendation from Microsoft is to hold off on updating cloud based DP’s. Read more about this here.
  • Short tutorial on how to Deploy a web clip on iOS devices that links to the Mobile Web Portal.
  • Brian Mason has been experimenting with Management Points and Distribution Points with the server GUI. Read all about the idea, its purpose, and the outcome of the test here.
  • Kent Agerlund blogs about troubleshooting issue with collection updates in Configuration Manager 2012.

Enjoy the weekend and see you next week!

Time flies – another week and month have gone by. Here are a few things that I personally wanted to catch up on from last week. Maybe there are a few things of interest for you as well:

  • Microsoft support published an article entitled Configuring and Troubleshooting Operating System Deployment in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. If you are looking for the basics on setup up OSD then this article may be of interest to you. I’m missing the details about the troubleshooting though.
  • Must read article on myITforum on Configuration Manager 2012 Index Optimization
  • Released: KB2961924 – A command-line action that has a linked package doesn’t start in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.
  • Released: KB2962909 – Active Directory discovery creates computer names that use the domain NetBIOS name in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.
  • Saw this tweet from David O’Brien flying by talking about something called Chocolatey applications. Never heard of them but they look interesting and I definitely will look further into these for usage in my labs.

See you next week!
