  • Blog Post: SCCM 64-Bit WoWness

    Jim Wightman's blog posting on SCCM not natively being a 64-bit app has been on my mind for a while now. I'd like to wave a wand and magic up a 64-bit version of the production today, so that we can leverage even more performance out of the OS and Hardware. But realistically, it won't arrive...
  • Blog Post: ConfigMgr 2007 RTM\SP1 - Component Status Summarizer acting like a dead duck?

    This issue won't impact many of you, and to induce the following behaviour you really need to go toggle some values most SMS Admins leave well alone. Hence why this one hasn't been spotted in the wild (there is a technet forum thread on this ...). Have you noticed in your environment that...

  • Blog Post: ConfigMgr SP1 installation causes BSOD

    Had an interesting problem yesterday, ConfigMgr RTM upgrade to SP1 two thirds of the way through induced a BSOD. Hard to troubleshoot, system reboots and all you're left with is a minidump (depending on your OS configuration for debugging) and a partially completed ConfigMgrSetup log file. ...
  • Blog Post: ConfigMgr client install failure - Errors 1708 & 1603 in

    Seen an interesting issue where the CCMSETUP parameters incorrectly specify MP as SMSMP, resulting in failure and exotic errors appearing in the CLIENT.MSI and CCMSETUP logs: Just need to fire up CLIENT.MSI in SMSTRACE, find Return value 3 and you'll possibly see the following: WARNING: The...

    Guys, Looking to share knowledge with anyone that has implemented IBCM for Configuration Manager 2007.

  • Blog Post: Looking for a UK based ConfigMgr admin

    Isn't it funny, as that saying goes, you wait around for a bus and three come along at once. Well I've not been waiting for a bus, instead I've been waiting around for some exceptional ConfigMgr projects to get stuck in too. I'm taken care of now, but wonder if there are any UK ConfigMgr...
  • Blog Post: Configuration Manager 2007 SDK (V4.0) - Part 2

    Doh, had to correct a URL in my previous post The Configuration Manager 2007 SDK link on http://www.microsoft.com/smserver/default.mspx is still pointing at an invalid address ... pinged customer services to let them know, but doubt i'm the first ;-)
  • Blog Post: Configuration Manager 2007 SDK (V4.0)

    I noticed that the Configuration Manager SDK link that is shown on www.microsoft.com/smserver is turning up a page not found, it points to http://mscompub/dmt/dialogs/preview/preview.aspx?d=preview&user=deniselr&familyid=064a995f-ef13-4200-81ad-e3af6218edcc&languageid=f49e8428-7071-4979-8a67...
  • Blog Post: SCCM2007 - Exam

    I passed the 70-401 - Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 exam yesterday (13th June 2008). Wasn't as easy as the SMS2003 exam I have to admit. But, I passed with a score high enough to make me buzz all day. I found some of the questions to be really challenging, a lot of NAP and Software...

  • Blog Post: SCCM2007 VHD - Evaluation

    Microsoft have released a SCCM2007 VHD for download at Microsoft Download Center Not too sure why it's saying the download can be between 551.6MB and 7551.6MB when there are several files that seem to be parts of a single archive: WIN03_SCCM.part01.exe - 700.0 MB WIN03_SCCM.part02.rar...
