Good day all – if you were able to attend MMS2013 hope you had a great time, if not, no worries you are in luck. All MMS2013 sessions should now be available on Channel 9.

Check out my session ‘Complex Maintenance Using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager and Orchestrator: Patching a Cluster’ – http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MMS/2013/UD-B341 .

During this session, I detail a sample Orchestrator / Configuration Manager Solution which is used to gracefully apply updates to a Windows Failover cluster. In this session, I demonstrate this live against a 2 node Hyper-V cluster (hosting 20 VM's, Live migration and all).

Finally if you like what you see, I have made the Runbooks available at the following location – http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Cluster-Patching-Runbooks-5bda907a

Enjoy – and as always, you can subscribe to my twitter feed using the button found on the upper right hand section of this page.
