It's been a while

Hi All,

It's been nearly 6 months since my last post. As some of you know i've been working on System Center Reporting Manager for the last 9 months or so. I even got to meet some of you and present at this years MMS 2005 conference on SCRM ("Implementing and Customizing System Center Reporting Manager ").

Because I've been working on SCRM 2005 for so long I've had little chance to test and post findings related to SMS 2003.

That said a post by Eileen Brown peaked my interest. It related to the number of secondary sites supported by a single Primary Site. I've replyed to this blog with just some of my observations. This area has generally recieved little converage. To some extent that this is because "supportability" depends on so many factors no one is really willing to "sign in blood".

What i can say is that in a well managed environment the sweet stop for large scale deployments of secondary sites appears to be between 200-500 secondaries per primary site. Please see Eileen's blog for more details.

On another matter, it's nice to have another Kiwi and Auckland University Alumni at Microsoft.
