Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager Cookbook - Second Edition

Hi folks,

Just wanted to do a quick post to announce my book on the latest System Center Configuration Manager CM that I wrote last year with my ex-coworker from Microsoft, Chuluunsuren Damdinsuren aka Chuka (PFE).

Important note: this book has been written on my private time and I'm not talking on behalf of Microsoft (as I used to work there) but just as me sharing my own experiences over the years. Since I don't work at Microsoft anymore, this blog will be probably discontinued, thank you for reading me until now!! (I will still try to convince my ex-coworker Chuka to continue this blog).


This practical cookbook is based on the 1602 current branch of System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). It shows you how to administer SCCM, giving you an essential toolbox of techniques to solve real-world scenarios. Packed with over 60 task-based and instantly usable recipes, you’ll discover how design a SCCM Infrastructure, and dive into topics such as the recommended SQL configuration for SCCM and how to deploy Windows 10 with Operating System Deployment (OSD).

You will learn to easily manage Windows 10 devices by deploying applications, software updates, and feature upgrades, andl be able to leverage Mobile Device Management (MDM) using SCCM and Microsoft Intune. Finally, you see how to gather the inventory of all your PC park and create reports based on it. By the end of the book, you will have learned the best practices when working with SCCM and have a handy reference guide for troubleshooting.

Good reading!!
