During this preperation I just noticed a new default built-in query; “All jailbroken or rooted devices”.

It really made me smile, and gave me a few ideas to a new demo. So I though I’d share it here

Updating Microsoft Office (Service Packs) using Software Updates


Today I got a support call from a customer, where all software update was being deployed successfully, except the Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 2. About a year ago, I had customer with a similar issue, so I though, it might be worth sharing in a blog post…

Installing SCCM 2012 SP1 CU2 – Quick Start Guide


A couple of months ago, I wrote the “Installing SCCM 2012 SP1 CU1 – Quick Start Guide”, and this post has been one of most visited blog post I’ve ever created, so my guess is that it would good idea to create one for Cumulative Update 2 (CU2).

Installing this update is very similar to CU1, but a few things has changed. In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the upgrade process step-by-step, in a standalone primary scenario.
