I totally forgot to post about a super great guest speaker at the upcoming AZ Systems Management User Group (AZSMUG) Meeting this coming Wednesday, March 21, 2012, at the Microsoft office in Tempe from 2:30 PM – 6:00 PM. If anyone has used the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), then you may recognize the name, Michael Niehaus. Michael is the Senior Program Manager that has been responsible for this tool for quite a long time.
If there is anyone I want to hear talk about this tool, it is Michael Niehaus. He will be presenting at Microsoft Management Summit 2012 and Tech Ed 2012. If you are in the Phoenix area and won’t be able to make it to either of those upcoming conferences, you should definitely take advantage of this opportunity to hear from him for FREE!!
The topics for the meeting are:
What's New in Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012? The next version of the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) will be released soon! Learn about all the new features and enhancements in this version, including support for Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager; the ability to deploy to UEFI computers; integration with the DaRT tools; and much more.
Introducing the Application Approval Workflow solution accelerator In System Center 2012, the Configuration Manager application catalog provides the ability to require administrative approval for new application requests. In this session, we’ll explore how the Application Approval Workflow solution accelerator can be used to process these requests, delegating approvals to the appropriate people.
Inside a Configuration Manager 2012 Task Sequence In this session, we demonstrate the inner workings of a task sequence, showing the various steps in the process, how information is passed to and between each step, what the steps do, and how to troubleshoot when things don’t go as expected.
