  • 18:30 – 19:-00 : Welcome
  • 19:00 – 20:00 : CM12 R2 Custom reporting 101( Kenny Buntinx + Bart Serneels ) Scugbe

Reporting in ConfigMgr 2012 is a powerful way to get information about almost everything in your environment. But sometimes the built-in reports that Microsoft has provided are enough. If you search on how to create a custom report you’ll get several results on the subject , but what most of them lack is how to create the actual query part of the report. You could of course search the internet and hope that someone else has already published a query for exactly what you’re trying to accomplish, but most of the time you’ll not find what you’re looking for. In this session Bart and I will walk through the steps to create a custom reports for usage in the ConfigMgr console, and the best part, you don’t need any heavy knowledge on how to write SQL queries.

  • 20:10 – 20:40 : Break with Pizza or sandwiches
  • 20:45 – 21:45 : SCOM: How to tune & tame the beast with Marnix Wolf (MVP) wmugnl

So you installed SCOM, imported the Management Packs and started monitoring. Now the real fun starts. How about the so famous 360 degree monitoring? Is it only marketing mumbo jumbo or not? How to get the most out of Distributed Applications? How about creating Classes for your specific monitoring needs? And do both – and more – without taking a deep dive into hard core Management Pack authoring? And when SCOM starts having issues, how to solve them? Where to start? In this session Marnix will show you how to get things done in a fast and easy manner. Also he’ll show you how to start troubleshooting in a consistent manner, pinpointing some common issues and how to solve them.

  • 22:00 : Networking (March) Drink at the Huiver (zaventem)
