  2. Adventures in Macland... my experiences with ConfigMgr 2012 and Macs Part 1

    by , 22nd March 2013 at 06:12 PM

    During the planning stages, we have been evaluating the Mac component of the product. My colleague @Roberto has written a little about it on his blog at It's Always My Problem. You should go read it. Go ahead, I'll wait.

  3. SCCM 2007 Native Mode - fun with certificates

    Pretty much every guide I see on SCCM2007, including windows-noob.com and @TheScarfedOne's excellent missives here, say to install in mixed mode. Pfft, says I, how boring and ...

  4. Getting scarily close to Summer and our entire new network setup.

    by , 22nd April 2012 at 08:44 AM
    I'm confident enough to say it'll work well. But there's always that little nagging doubt in the back of my mind; the bit that says OK, this was my idea and the majority of implementation and testing is down to me and me alone. If it goes wrong, I'll never hear the end of it!

    Anyway, after many successful years of CC3 (I only joined about 16 months ago, personally though) our school has decided to take the bull by the horns and update just about everything. A choice that started in ...
