I’ve been working at Salford Council today performing a Microsoft Desktop Deployment Workshop. Great guys there, very strong techies and have a broad spectrum of experience. They’ve implemented MDT, SCCM, App-V, Lync, Direct Access etc. all well configured so there wasn’t much for me to give them in terms of introducing them to new technology’s. I have however been able to share various deployment techniques with a ‘configuring the MDT Database walk-through’.
One pain point they have is managing drivers in SCCM. I planned to host another workshop showing how to collect and manage drivers. Then I remembered a great article by my friend Johan Arwidmark posted 3 years ago. It’s part of a series and is found here:
Thanks Johan! Johan’s written a great book called Deployment Fundamentals: Deploying Windows clients using MDT 2010 Lite Touch (Volume 1)
In addition, MVP Chris Nackers has put together a huge resource here: http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/cnackers/archive/2011/02/09/driver-management-resources.aspx Thanks Chris!
