So now that we are finished with configuring and preparing the integration of the ENGL Driver Manager 3.0 with Configuration Manager 2012 it is time to look at the real integration
In the earlier blog about the ENGL Driver Manager we looked at the installation of ENGL Driver Manager and the gathering Hardware Inventory information which we need for managing the drivers. Now we will have a look at the preparation for integrating the ENGL Driver Manager with Configuration Manager 2012.
A couple of weeks ago ENGL released the 3.0 version of their Driver Manager with support for MDT 2012 and Configuration Manager 2012.

While implementing Configuration Manager 2012 at a customer recently, I had a nice Configuration Manager experience which I really want to share. See the following scenario; for security reasons a customer is not allowing DHCP in their network. For this customer I need to implement a Operating System Deployment solution with Configuration Manager.
Great news via Kent Agerlund; Yesterday at TechEd North America Wally Mead and Mark Florida announced (some of) the features and enhancements that Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 will bring us.
Some of the highlights are for instance the extra support for the following Operating Systems:
But also support for adding a CAS to a stand-alone Primary Site and the possibility to use the migration feature when migrating between 2 Configuration Manager 2012 sites.
Read the complete list at the blog of fellow MVP Kent Agerlund here: http://blog.coretech.dk/kea/configmgr-2012-sp1-announced-teched-2012/
Hope to hear more details in the near future at for instance TechEd Europe at the end of the month. A CTP is released later this week..
This week I needed to move a Configuration Manager 2012 database from the local primary site to a SQL Server 2008 R2 environment that is clustered. A fairly simple action but you need to keep a couple of things in mind when moving a Configuration Manager 2012 database to a cluster. Let’s see what you need to keep in mind.
