In terms of IT compliance having valid GPOs is essential. They must be update to date and the GPO directory should be free of any unlinked GPOs. Retrieving a list of unlinked GPOs in the management console is impossible. With PowerShell it is quite easy.
“Manage the life cycle of your SCCM applications with PowerShell” is a short post series where I share my PowerShell experience with System Center Configuration Manager. In my last post I’ve shown you a script to distribute application content and deploy an application to its collections. In my final post I’ll show you the last part of the app life cycle – the termination.
“Manage the life cycle of your SCCM applications with PowerShell” is a short post series where I share my PowerShell experience with System Center Configuration Manager. In my last post I’ve shown you a script that creates applications and all assets required to deploy it. This time I have a script to distribute the application content and deploy the application to its collections.
I’m currently planning and building a System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) infrastructure for a local hospital. SCCM is a complex system composed of various components to make the client and software life cycle management feasible. While configuring SCCM is a tedious job which is done once, managing applications is a recurring process. That’s why the application life cycle is the perfect candidate for scripted automation. With the most recent SCCM release Microsoft made it a lot easier to use the power of PowerShell. I’ve developed a few scripts which help creating, deploying and deleting SCCM applications. Configuring applications manually can be very bothersome and is always at risk for misconfiguration. The benefit for automation is huge.

This walkthrough shows how to build an automated registration form that closes down registration if the seats in the class fill up.
Here’s an example of what the result will look like:
As in on of my last post I’ve showed you my approach to manage distribution groups in the hierarchical structure of an ActiveDirectory installation. In the mean time I’ve adapted a similiar approach for the security groups.
Here is an example of the structure: Read More
One of my company’s requirements is the retention time of 10 years for user accounts and their mailbox data, I have to admit, this might not be common or even recommended.
However I have to deal with it.
One problem to face is the availabilty of user account names, by the number of about 500 employees there’s a hight change that two or even more people are having the same name.
To clean up the available names in the system I’ve written a script that renames a users identity and the mailboxes address.
So let’s see what this script does:
The Managed Metadata feature in SharePoint 2010/2013/Office365 enables a new way to manage your documents and other company related informations.
Yet most file systems store their files in an hierarchical structure, with SharePoint and the Managed Metadata Service you can setup a document management system.
