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.
Time to get some feedback to MS on the WSUS and Configmgr integration.
Check out the survey here, takes literally one minute, no login required and the feedback is seen by the product group, who, as you know, roll the dice on the features and any updates they get.
If you love taking surveys, and who doesn't, then you'll definitely want to stop by MyITForum and give ours a shot. And if you're thinking "Wow, I love surveys, but who has the time?" then don't worry, ours is only a single question. It doesn't get much easier than that. So if you'd like to send us some feedback on what your top pain points are with regards to System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and WSUS then head on over to the following link and let us hear from you:
This is a MS survey, hosted over on myITforum. Check it out here http://www.myitforum.com/absolutenm/templates/?a=17048&z=120
I've already fed back a request ...
