BLOG-1000070A quick non technical blog to start the day with! Yesterday Microsoft announced that the licensing model around the Enterprise Mobility Suite is going to be changed on March the first, until now EMS is part of the Enterprise Agreement. As from next week the Enterprise Mobility Suite will also be available via the Open License model! This opens doors for a lot of customers to be able to use the Enterprise Mobility Suite. Early March, Microsoft Action Pack subscribers, along with Silver and Gold competency partners, will receive access to EMS and Azure AD Basic as part of their Internal Use Rights benefits. So this is really great news!

A couple of weeks ago one of my colleagues wanted to push the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 client after I had tested enrolling Windows 10 into Microsoft Intune, but for some reason he was not able to push it.

sccm2012-logoThis time not really a technical blog but a short story about what happens if IT people don’t talk to each other. A month or so ago a customer of mine emailed me describing an issue that OS Deployment was suddenly not working anymore. In the morning it was still working and during the afternoon it was not. For some reason WindowsPE could not be found on any distribution point.

After some digging around by the client, apparently the Active Directory Team renamed the Active Directory sites in their environment without telling the rest of their colleagues. So this behavior is indeed very logical because the actual AD site in which the client computer is in, is not known by Configuration Manager. Let’s see how this process works.
