In my post regarding what’s new in NightWatchman 5.5 I talked about the new NightWatchman Console .  I want to cover the security aspect of the console in this post to show some of the flexibility of the console as well as explain how to set the proper security. In the NightWatchman Console the last tab on the right is Security , this is to manage the security of the console specifically, not...

1E released a new white paper written by Ian Godfrey last week entitled Remote Management of BIOS Configuration, which is centered around configuring Wake-on-LAN but the concepts and tools can be used to manipulate other BIOS settings as well.  This paper covers a number of different hardware vendors and how to remotely configure the BIOS, something that is not standard across the hardware vendors...

Right before Christmas 1E released not only the free tool Service Window that I mentioned in my last post but also new versions of NightWatchman now version 5.5, 1E WakeUp version 5.5, Nomad Enterprise 3.2 and our first version of the NightWatchman console.  Over the last 18 months I had been working with AT&T® to prove out the 1E Power and Patch Management Pack, which is a combination of...

Right before Christmas 1E released its first free tool for ConfigMgr admins in a while called Service Window .  This tool will allow you to edit, delete, add and view maintenance windows for ConfigMgr clients.  You can run the app on the client machine or by specifying the remote computer you want to examine.  Here is the app running on my laptop where you can see there are currently...

Finally got here after quite a long drive. We are staying at the Venetian and it is quite nice. There are quite a few people here already. When you register you get a backpack this year. It is blue, dark blue, but it is an OGIO backpack and it has a side zipper for your laptop as well as small side pockets, a large front pocket and a small front pocket. It actually looks like it will hold up quite...

I have gotten a ton of emails asking me if I am going to be at MMS this year and when and up until now I have held off because I was waiting for some things to finalize. But today 1E sent out an email to customer letting them know the booth number, and when Sumir, one of the founders of 1E, was going to speak.

It is not often I blog about 1E, I think it has only happened once before actually. Even before I got an offer from them they told me they didn't want me to blog about them or their products because they didn't want my blog to turn into PR for 1E. And over the last year I have not talked about the products at all. But as you may have noticed the number of posts I put up have also dropped dramatically...

Most IT related folks have an old laptop laying around that is too slow for what they need to do or they get a brand new one every six months. I know I have one that the hard drive has bad sectors on and don't want to spend the $40-60 to get a replacement drive since I have over half a dozen computers in my house and only four people. I have used it for testing in the past, setting up Server 2003...
