ConfigMgr TP1706 Adhoc PowerShell Script Support

The ConfigMgr Product Team released TP1706 late last night (6/23), and much to my surprise, they added some native functionality for running scripts on endpoints on demand.

MMS 2017 Retrospective – Part 2

MMS 2017 is a few weeks in the rear-view mirror at this point, and now that I’ve had some time to mull over everything I learned and the experience in general I wanted to put some of those thoughts and takeaways out there for those who couldn’t make it.

Every year when I get back home I immediately download all the slide decks and pour over the sessions I made it to, and more importantly, the sessions I couldn’t attend. Unfortunately this year Andrew Johnson’s excellent download script (http://www.andrewj.net) was not functioning.
