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.
Fortunate I am indeed to get renewed as part of the ConfigMgr MVP programme for a second time:
Dear Rob Marshall, Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2010 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in System Center Configuration Manager technical communities during the past year.
Going to be an amazing “tech year” 2010, we’ll be seeing the shadowy outline of ConfigMgr V.Next as it makes its way towards a public release (earmarked for release around 2011 as most of you already know) and blows your socks off with its features and capabilities.
A big thanks to Microsoft for renewing me! And no less a thank you to all of you that helped me out during the year. If all goes well then I’ll be bringing you a wealth of v.next information over 2010 to help skill you up for its release in both WMUG virtual and physical meetings, more so once the releases are available for public consumption leading up to RTM.
