System Center User Group Denmark (SCUG.DK) was founded in 2009 with the main goal to help IT Pro’s to design, deploy and manage IT solutions using Microsoft System Center products.

So I’m really happy to announce that we’ve recorded some of the sessions from our meeting last week, and published the video’s on YouTube.…

Friday Microsoft released the 1602 update to System Center Configuration Manager, and Monday morning I had a scheduled a new SCCM/Intune hybrid project starting at one of my customers. Perfect timing! The customer was already on 1511 and they provided me with a newly created admin account. I got “Full Admin” rights to SCCM and even Domain Admin. To get the new build you might have to run a PowerShell script on the CAS or the Primary Server. More info here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrteam/2016/03/11/now-available-update-1602-for-system-center-configuration-manager/ The update was downloaded, but the update didn’t show up in the console.

Today I was working with a customer that wanted upgrade MBAM from 2.0 to 2.5 SP1. It was a simple stand-alone configuration with a two server setup. Deployed exactly like this example: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3046555. Great guide. The upgrade process is (normally) pretty straight forward. Basically, you need to back up the database, uninstall the old version of MBAM, Install the new version of MBAM and then run the configuration wizard. But in this scenario the IIS service didn’t survive the upgrade, so the helpdesk and the self-service portal wasn’t working. So while we’re trying to fix this problem, helpdesk calls for…

With the release of Windows 10, more and more customers are starting to move from the traditional KMS based activation model to Active Directory-based activation (ADBA). In a single domain environment, the setup process is really simple, and a complete step-by-step guide can be found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn613828.aspx. But if you’re using a multi domain setup, you might see this errors when you try to Activate online. In this specific scenario, we had the KMS server installed the child domain, and new servers in the forest root domain was activated using a MAK key. This is not supported if you want…
