In October I already mentioned the Configuration Manager Field Experience eBook which was made available by Microsoft. In November a second eBook in this series was released: troubleshooting Configuration Manager.
This book is covering the following topics:
- Troubleshooting common Configuration Manager tasks such as software distribution, software updates, and deployment.
- Understanding how the various components of Configuration Manager on both the server and client side work together when such tasks are performed.
- Dealing with the enormous number of log files that are generated on both the server and client side of Configuration Manager.
