Last Day to Request April’s Free SSRS Report, SCEP Computer Details

This free report is only available in APRIL, so send an email to Info AT Enhansoft to get your copy TODAY. The SCEP Computer Details report will give you a good overview of the System Center Endpoint Protection status (including malware detection) for a specific PC. Please note that this SCEP report is only intended for use with ConfigMgr 2012 and ConfigMgr 2012 R2. One of the interesting facts that we learned while creating this report was that, unlike many other anti-virus software products available on the market, SCEP uses three different items (anti-virus signature version, engine version, and client version) to detect the latest malware. If you have never heard of client version (sometimes called platform version) you are not alone. Many people are unaware that they need to update th...

Windows Azure Pack in a FIPS compliant environment

I am just about to deploy a Windows Azure Pack (WAP) express installation in an environment where they have to turn on FIPS compliancy. There are companies that turn everything in GPOs on that have “security” in the name or description field, but actually don’t really need it, and then there are companies that actually need it. Windows Azure Pack configuration fails Usually installation and configuration of a Windows Azure Pack installation is really easy and straight forward, especially when using the Express install, which puts every feature on one server (only for really small / limited PoCs!). I’ve done that multiple times already, but this time the configuration failed. […]

PowerShell scripting guidelines

Like always, if people are talking languages they will have dialects or accents (I don’t ). PowerShell is not an exception here. There are so many people nowadays writing PowerShell all over the world or even in just one company, that there have to be some ground rules. Obviously PowerShell already has its own rules, otherwise it wouldn’t work, but just knowing the words doesn’t make it easier for everybody to understand. Especially in environments where a lot of people are working on the same scripts / code, there have to be rules so that anybody can go and understand and edit anybody’s script PowerShell scripting guidelines This here is […]
