I would like to inform you about two great Operations Manager courses that will be delivered in Sweden this spring.

Microsoft System Center Suite Bootcamp

The SMSE Bootcamp is a dynamic, new 3-day training course from the System Center Technical Readiness team which brings together the core products from Microsoft’s System Center Suite in a series of “Real World”, data center management scenarios. The course has been specifically designed for Technical Consultants to give them the skills and understanding they need to successfully implement the System Center Suite for customers and end users. The course consists of a series of instructor led, hands on labs (HOL), which guide the student through the steps required to both successfully configure and use System Center Operations Manager 2007 (OpsMgr), System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (ConfigMgr), System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) in conjunction with core data center applications such as Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2007 running on the Microsoft Hyper-V platform.

App-V File Streaming Primer

Subject: App-V File Streaming Primer

App-V 4.5 includes a great feature: file streaming. This is a super-easy, lightweight way to get an application published and loaded for use on an App-V client. There are no server or network pre-requisites required so it’s a very low overhead way to quickly get an application up and running.

When would you use file streaming? It’s ideal for any scenario when you don’t want a publishing or streaming server. For example, these situations come up when you’re testing a newly sequenced package, or fine-tuning the prescriptive guidance used; or you might be scoping a problem to be either a server-side issue or a client-side issue: if the problem still happens when you file-stream, the problem is client-side, otherwise it’s likely a networking or server-side issue.

To run through the steps needed to setup file streaming, we’ll keep the application generic and call it “SampleApp”. We assume that you’ve sequenced SampleApp using the App-V 4.5 Sequencer. No special steps are needed during the sequencing process. Here is the output from the Sequencer:

Subject: What's New in the Configuration Manager Documentation Library for February 2009

imageThe Configuration Manager Writing Team posted a list of updated docs over on the Configuration Manager Team blog.  These all look to be updated as of February 2009 so if it's been  a while since you've read these then you might want to check out what's new. 

I have their list below but you can read their entire post at http://blogs.technet.com/configmgrteam/archive/2009/02/19/announcement-configuration-manager-documentation-library-update-for-february-2009.aspx.

========

The following information lists the topics that are new or contain significant changes since the December 2008 update.

About Report Models in SQL Reporting Services

– Updated with new information about deploying report models for use in the Configuration Manager console.

Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Report Model in SQL Reporting Services – Simple

– Replaces the topic "Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Report Model in SQL Reporting Services" to provide updated procedures for creating a SQL Reporting Services report model using a single view from the Configuration Manager database.

Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Report Model in SQL Reporting Services – Advanced

– New topic providing procedures to create a SQL Reporting Services report model using multiple views from the Configuration Manager database.

Step-by-Step Guide to Deploying a Report Model to Configuration Manager

– New topic providing a procedure for making SQL Reporting Services report models available to report authors from the Configuration Manager console.

About Configuration Items in Desired Configuration Management

– Updated with the information that providers retrieve configuration information by using objects and settings defined within the configuration item. The objects that can be defined are assembly, file or folder, and the registry. The settings that can be defined are XML queries, WQL queries, SQL queries, scripts, registry, Active Directory Domain Services, and the IIS metabase.

Prerequisites for Out of Band Management

– Updated with clarifications that the Intel HECI driver is required for in-band provisioning only; DHCP is also required for in-band provisioning; IPv6 is not supported; in-band provisioning is not supported with Windows 2000 Professional or Windows XP Tablet PC.

AMT Provisioning Issues for Out of Band Management

– Updated with the entry "Configuration Manager Fails to Provision Computers In a Child Domain Because of Missing DCOM Access Permissions", which describes a CA configuration requirement when the issuing CA is in another domain. To identify this troubleshooting scenario, look for ERROR: ICertRequest2->Submit failed: 0x80070005 in the log file amtproxyomgr.log.

How to Configure Windows Server 2008 for Site Systems

– Updated to include the fallback status point.
