  2. Hey Peter,

    I found your website blog posts on SCCM while doing a search this quiet Sunday afternoon.

    You really have a ton of info! Nice!

    I work with Jeremy Moskowitz, Group Policy MVP, and we run PolicyPak Software together.

    Based on what I see on your website, I thought PolicyPak might make an interesting blog entry for your readers.

    We can configure applications after software is installed on desktops, laptops and VDI machines. Interesting?

    We have a quick overview video here I think will give you the essentials:

    If you think this is a good idea, I can send you the bits and you can talk with Jeremy if you have technical questions during your writeup.

    What do you think?

  3. Wow! you blog is really very good.

    hello my name is liji i am from very small town in india. I remember one of the days when i was getting trained for MCITP-EA Windows 2008 R2 in 2012 while i was going for a class near the place where i stay.

    My trainer who is certified as MCT told everyone in the class SCCM as one of the biggest technologies in Microsoft. And i wish i will could become as MVP in SCCM one day to make my trainer happy about me.

    I love windows server and hardly know what an SCCM is.

    Cheers 🙂

  4. Hi,
    Maybe you can help me
    I am looking for any documents about Microsoft SCCM 2012 vs Autotask Endpoint Management.
    Benefits between the two products support. Etc.
    What is better?

  5. Hi all love the site!
    I was wondering if I could get some advice!
    We have a few Macbook Pro’s in our environment assigned to staff.

    We already have Intune for a bunch of mobile phones ( Android ) and would like to enroll these Mac’s so we have visibility over them and to have the ability to wipe them if they are lost or stolen.

    I have enrolled one Mac ( assigned the Intune license to the end user ) then enrolled it.

    I can see the device in our Intune portal fine – but how can I restrict the staff member from removing the Intune profile ?

    1. Hi Dan, unfortunately you cant by default. Maybe this works if you enroll a device via the Device Enrollment Program of Apple, but I have never tested this so I am not sure.

  6. Hi,

    Could you please share your mail id so that I can connect with you over there for some suggestions?
