I'm Robert Marshall, director and principle consultant at SMSMarshall Ltd, who's specialism is in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager product and all of its dependent products, covering all aspects from Architecture, Implementation, Migration to Break-Fix.
I've been in front of computers for over 30 years now, with my roots in programming 8 bit computers, I've taken an often exciting journey which has led to becoming an expert in an enterprise product. I consider my career as starting 17 years ago, when I began my first serious role as a deployment engineer. I've seen 8 bit through to 64 bit, the rise and refinement of the interface we take for granted now, the rise of the Internet from land-line based modem access for the few, to the powerful broadband connections we have today for the masses, I saw mobile phones come into existence, and I've seen Microsoft evolve from more than a handful of employees to the company it is now, while pretty much tinkering with every OS they have released, as well as seeing an industry that has evolved around those humble beginnings to become what we have today. I'm a keen technical puzzle solver, I love to solve gnarly problems around my area of specialism. And, I love to share when I have time. I hope you enjoy the blog.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope this helps grow your knowledge
