July 2018 MNSCUG Meeting

The July 2018 Minnesota System Center User Group meeting will be Wednesday, July 18th from 4:30pm to 7:15pm at the MTC in Edina. 3601 76th Street West. Edina, MN 55435 6th floor.

Configuration Manager is a treasure trove of data.  But getting that information from query return to reports fit for your boss's consumption is not always straight forward.  Better yet, that teeth gnashing feeling, when you know Configuration Manager has some of the information you want but isn't collecting that one extra value you so desperately need.  

Well don't be frustrated. Instead come to the July MNSCUG meeting where Mark Godfrey, current MNSCUG President and Software/Systems Engineer for Recast Software, along with Gary Blok, OSD Engineer at Wells Fargo and author of the beloved Garytown.com blog show us how to:

  • Create and Populate Custom WMI Classes
  • Collect Custom Classes via CM Hardware Inventory
  • Create Collections and Reports from Collected Data

 OSD day has been rescheduled for August check back at MNSCUG.org for more information ... coming soon.

June 2018 MNSCUG Meeting - Software Updates

The June 2018 Minnesota System Center User Group meeting will be Wednesday, June 20th from 4:30pm to 7:15pm at the MTC in Edina. 3601 76th Street West. Edina, MN 55435 6th floor.

What's new in Software Updates?

MNSCUG Vice President Julia Kambiri, Senior Systems Engineer at SPS Commerce, will bring you a session on recent changes to windows servicing with Configuration Manager including, Windows Updates for Business, Express Updates, Windows and Office 365 Servicing, Delivery Optimization and the long awaited 2018 update of System Center Update Publisher (SCUP).

This session aims to translate the processes and terms that we have used in traditional Patch Management into the new language of Modern Management. Give a general introduction to some of the new software update tools that have been introduced in the past year, explain which are compatible with on Prem, Hybrid or Cloud management solution(s). Julia will also share how she uses these tools in concert with more standard update practices, along with some personally experienced pitfalls to avoid.

A special thanks to @PatchMyPC for sponsoring our June meeting!
