I'm Rob Marshall, a consultant who specialises in the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager product. I like to share, i do so by blogging and helping out when I can in the MS SMS newsgroups and participating in the ConfigMgr MVP program.
I was awarded and joined the program in 2009. It'd be an understatement to say it has to be one of the best experiences an IT engineer can have, if they really enjoy specialising in a product.
My biggest weapon for troubleshooting is, my formidable knowledge, no, only joking, you, the community. I find if I cannot answer a question, then I can usually find the answer from using Bing\Google, pouring over the documentation, and if that doesn't work, tinkering in mine or someone elses virtual lab.
The blogs pretty much about ConfigMgr, but it is also a platform for me to express my random urges to display something I've stumbled across, and that I imagine would entertain you or what not as equally as it did me.
I was just speaking to an engineer based out in Brazil, he
has been pestering me for operations stuff for a few weeks now and it was only
when he said he’d learnt a lot about the product from me that I actually
realised how much knowledge I was pushing in his direction, and how he’d been
keeping up! He’s consumed all the internal documentation we can throw at him.
Anyway, now I felt it was time to un-tether him from me and
let him grow his knowledge independently. So, I passed him these two very
important links that everyone that both knows the product, or is just starting
out should have in their browser favourites.
The Configuration Manager 2007 Documentation Library
The Configuration Manager 2007 Documentation Library in
There is also a Vista Gadget that allows you to search the
Documentation Library, get it from here
The SMS Docs team are pretty approachable and friendly
bunch, and are always willing to hear about any issues with the documentation.
So, if you have something to feed back to them send an email to email@example.com
Hope this helps grow your knowledge
