70-243 & 70-242 – Call to Action!

Ok Everyone, it is time to tell MS what you think a stem Center Configuration Manager 2012 and System Center Operations Manager 2012. http://borntolearn.mslearn.net/btl/b/weblog/archive/2011/03/24/system-center-folks-we-need-your-input.aspx

The Survey is 5 questions lone with the most “taxing” question being “What are the top 10 tasks that a ConfigMgr should be able to perform?”

I’m sure that there are some debates on what these should be but there are some of my suggestions: (listed in no particular order)

  • Create a basic app model
  • Create a basic SSRS report
  • Create a collection
  • Create a task sequence
  • Deploy Win 7 (OSD)
  • How to create Software Metering Rules
  • How to deploy SU
  • How to setup Power Management
  • How to troubleshoot client deployment issues
  • How to use AI
  • How to use DCM
  • How to use NAP
  • How to use Remote control ( and what is new with RC!)
  • Mobile support
  • Name all the feature and what they do
  • Set client setting via a collection
  • Setup up RAC
  • Understand all the site roles and what they do.
  • Use the help file or Superflows (Yes this is important! It is surprising how many people don’t RTFM)
  • What is OBB and what does it do
  • What is WOL and what does it do

So I expect all MVP, MCC, Heck everyone to do this survey! I also expect all of you to:

So expect me to start chasing everyone shortly! It is too bad that they had to announce this after MMS otherwise I talking to everyone at MMS about this! It is about time ConfigMgr became a FIRST class citizen in MSL eyes! So let’s not do what we normally do and make MSL wake-up and know we are here!
