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.
News on an extension to the Scopalis ConfigMgr IP ...
One of our favorite community members, Ryan Andorfer, has just created a new community IP for Configuration Manager 2007! You may know Ryan from his previous IP’s (available on CodePlex) for Active Directory, Exchange, VSphere, Scheduled Tasks, and Opalis Utilities. Well, he’s done it again! This new IP for Configuration Manager 2007 currently has 43 different activities with another 17 still in development.
If you've got Scopalis running, so worth checking out this IP ... some really cool stuff happening, so check out the article for a run down on what is in the IP Extension.
Made by a community member, and probably going to be used by the world. That's what I like about Microsoft and ConfigMgr ... you really can be creative and get it recognised and used world-wide ... kudos Ryan.
Oh man! You can do so much to ConfigMgr inside your Scopalis(Orchestrat) runbooks !
