MMS Day 4 - Thursday 29th March

Today's keynote was a panel of big companies that use System Center including EDS.

Had a meeting with Neil Sanderson who is the Product Manager for System Center in the UK. Looks like there will be a "Best of MMS" session in the UK on the 1st May - more about this as soon as I know the details.

Attended a meeting with Brad Anderson (who basically "owns" SMS), and the other EDS folks where Brad gave us an insight into the future none of which unfortunately I can blog about as it's NDA.

Attended the closing party with the gang which to be honest was a bit disappointing compared to previous year's parties.

Managed to get to the SY20 Session SMS 2003/ SCCM 2007 911 Case Studies, my notes below:

CCM Change Window – Advanced Client Change Window Controller

  • SMS 2003 Change Window Controller – Way of setting a time that Clients WON’T receive Software distributions
  • Runs as SMS Change Window Controller service runs under Local System

TRSCLEAN – Clean up duplicate entries in TRS files (transaction file keeps transactions) – KB926617

 

Problems

Debugdiag.exe – allows to capture memory leaks

 

TRS files affecting replication performance REPLMGR

  • Upgrade to SP2 .TRS files increased 70% in size – can affect site server performance in large environments
  • Sms\inboxes\replmgr.box – takes a long time to open
  • Hotifx 926617 – known issue – only stops the issue happening in future, doesn’t fix problem – need to use TRSCLEAN.EXE needs to be run against each of the Child Sites TRS files.
  • Backup Site
  • Apply hotfix
  • Run TRSCLEAN e.g.

trsclean –v –t abc (don’t need to specify extension)

 

See KB926617 for full details

HWINV not being updated but SWINV is – all reporting to same MP but some reporting others not – DNS suffix missing on those machines

When files over 100K DNS used to connect to MP
