WMI for the SCCM Admin (Techdays Belgium 2010) – MMS 2010 Birds of a feather session

2:08 pm in ConfigMgr 2007, configmgr2007, events, mms by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Hi All,

I just proposed a birds of a feather session on WMI for the SCCM Admin.

This is the session I’ll be delivering at the end of this month at the Belgian Techdays. Quite a few people have asked me whether the session will be recorded, to which I have no answer right now. However, if you can’t come to Belgium (shame on you, as we have great beer and chocolate), yet you will attend MMS and would like to hear more about this, here is your chance.

 

If you want to see this session go through than vote for this session by performing the following procedure:

· Log into CommNet (http://www.mms-2010.com)

· Click on “BOF Survey” in the left Nav

· In the “Commonly Requested Topics” dropdown select “WMI for the ConfigMgr Admin”

· Press “Submit”

Some of the fancy things I’ll demonstrate:

· Have suppress notification enabled when creating virtual applications

· Have the program of an advertisement disabled at advertisement creation if it is targetting a collection with more than X number of members to prevent Mass-deployments (Unless the program is in the mass deployment category or the advertisement has no mandatory schedule)

Some of the fancy things I’ll explain how to do

· Have any created program limited to predefined target platforms

· Eliminate the need for a Big Red Stop Button (BRSB) (copyright Shaun Cassells) http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/scassells/archive/2008/05/14/how-to-stop-an-errant-advertisement-in-sms-2003-sccm-2007.aspx

And that’s just the plain easy stuff J. If this has you intrigued, than be sure to vote, and yours truly will come to the party (I have some way more fancy tricks up my sleeve, and believe me by the end of this session you’ll think the M in WMI stands for Magic).

Enjoy.

SCUG: Getting Started with out of band management

3:50 pm in chopsticks, ConfigMgr, ConfigMgr 2007, events, out of band management by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Session video of ” Getting Started with out of ban management” given by Kim Oppalfens:

 

Configuration
Manager 2007 SP1 added this brand new feature called out of band
service management. In my opinion a worth-while addition, yet it
competes with the NAP feature for the position of least used SCCM 2007
feature, whereas it deserves a place up there with the feature hotshots
like software distribution and os deployment. The main reason it isn’t
up there in the popular feature list is most likely because the
provisioning of systems to support out of band service management can
be a little bit tricky. During this session we’ll show you how to get
provisioning going. We’ll talk about the 3 different ways of
provisioning, and show you the easiest way to get going.

Heading to MMS-2009 : What a challenge, Murphy’s Law was there !

4:42 am in events, mms by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Well , I am writing this article from the JFK airport in New York instead of O’Hare in Chicago. Murphy’s law was there to not get me to Las Vegas for some reason. But hey , he doesn’t know Kenny yet.I am not a quitter !

It all started yesterday around 13.00 h , when I discovered that my wife left with my glasses on the top of my car roof. You should say that I am a stupid ass to put my glasses there , but hey , it happened as you expect.

She leaves with the car , my glasses drops of the roof and the car does the job by crunching it into 100.000 pieces :-)

Goddammit , I can’t find my spare glasses …. so I called my optician for lenses . He responds to me : “ I call you back into 1 hour to see what I can do , because normally we need to order your lenses “ . Yes , I am pretty blind …

I was shocked , talking to myself : “ forget about Vegas without glasses or lenses “ , but my optician called back and said : “ I have a pair of lenses for you “. HOERA !!

But things can get even worse.

This morning I arrived at the airport and the first thing I noticed on the billboard was that my flight was delayed with 4 to 5 hours …. WTF !!  I went to the check-in and argued that this wasn’t an option. After some discussions and getting in touch with the manager of American airlines , they transfer me on the flight heading to “New York” instead of “Chicago”. Well I have to say that the services of AA are marvelous … It was my best international flight in years for economy class .

Well , after landing in New York , I discovered that I wasn’t allowed calling with my company cell … WTF !! It always worked ….When I am in Vegas , I will send a mail to HR to rectify it . Until then I hope I will find my SCUG friends in Vegas .

 

Tomorrow another story , but this time I hope nothing goes wrong anymore ! Hopefully my hotel isn’t cancelled or something :-)

Hope it helps ,

Kenny Buntinx

SCUG Session Getting started with Out of band service management

12:22 am in ConfigMgr, ConfigMgr 2007, events, SCCM 2007 by

SCUG Session Getting started with Out of band service management

 

Date: 02/04/09

Time: 18u30

Place: Microsoft Belgium

Speaker: Kim Oppalfens

 
 
Abstract: Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 added this brand new feature called
out of band service management. In my opinion a worth-while addition, yet it
competes with the NAP feature for the position of least used SCCM 2007 feature,
whereas it deserves a place up there with the feature hotshots like software
distribution and os deployment. The main reason it isn’t up there in the
popular feature list is most likely because the provisioning of systems to
support out of band service management can be a little bit tricky. During this
session we’ll show you how to get provisioning going. We’ll talk about the 3
different ways of provisioning, and show you the easiest way to get going. If
you have ConfigMgr 2007 SP1 running and have machines with Intel Vpro
capabilities then you can’t miss this session. Unless the following features
are not apealing to you at all:
 

  • Powering on/off one or many
    computers.
  • Restarting a nonfunctioning
    computer or booting from a locally connected device or known good boot
    image file.
  • Re-imaging a computer by
    booting from a boot image file that is located on the network or by using
    a PXE server.
  • Reconfiguring the BIOS settings
    on a selected computer.
  • Booting to a command-based
    operating system to run commands, repair utilities, or diagnostic
    applications.
  • Configuring scheduled software
    update deployments and advertisements to wake up computers prior to
    running.
