7 Tips for Mobile Device Management

By Garth Jones Thank you to everyone who attended the recent MVP Cloud Roadshow which was organized by the Ottawa Windows Server User Group. I had a great time talking about the 7 tips I recommend for mobile device management with Exchange Connector, Intune (hybrid) and Configuration Manager. As promised, here is a link to my presentation: http://www.enhansoft.com/downloads/PPT/7tipsforMDM.zip.

Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) Error

I exported the security role and emailed it back to the client, but when they imported it they received the error message below: Specify an XML file that contains the information that is required to define a Configuration Manager security role. I was a bit perplexed by the error until I found out that they are still running CM12 (RTM) and I’m running CM12 R2 for my main lab. A quick test on my end revealed that you can’t export a security role from CM12 R2 and import it on CM12, but you can import a security role from CM12 to CM12 R2. Normally, I would re-do the security role for CM12, but since th...
