I have now completed my tour of Systems Center Essentials (SCE) 2010 and here is the complete list of videos and posts for this series:
Part 3 Post setup administration
Part 4 Computer Administration
Part 5 Monitoring
Part 6 Managing updates
Part 7 Software deployment
Part 8 Authoring
Part 9 Authoring continued
Part 10 SCE Backup
Part 11 Restoring SCE
Part 12 Virtual Machine Management
Part 13 Reporting
Hopefully that’s all of some use and shows how SCE can provide a comprehensive view of your IT infrastructure to ensure you know about any problems and can respond to them before the help desk phones start ringing. SCE is included in the TechNet Subscriptions here or you can get a time bombed trial version here and I would also recommend looking at the SCE deployment guide and SCE Operations Guide which will enable you to get going in the real world.
Thank you for the videos - we have just installed SCE2010 (along with DPM), and I've found these videos very helpful indeed.
