Wrapping up the series of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)-related chats last week was a discussion on the upcoming Dell Deployment Pack for ConfigMgr release, and you can get the full transcript here. Be sure to check out the recently updated Dell Deployment Pack Installation Instructions and Using the Dell Deployment Pack for ConfigMgr pages for detailed procedures and lots of great screen captures.

Upcoming TechTuesday chats for the rest of February will cover new firmware enhancements for the PowerVault MD3000i and OpenManage 5.5. Links to landing pages for those chats as well as transcripts for previous chats are available on TechCenter Chat Topics and Transcripts page. As always, there is the option to post a comment or further question on any chat page. Upcoming chats are each Tuesday at 3 PM US Central time:

  • February 17 – MD3000i New Firmware Enhancements offers a discussion of enhancements including RAID-6 and greater-than 2 TB logical unit support.
  • February 24 – OpenManage 5.5 provides a good opportunity to discuss downloads, articles, demos, links, and documentation for the latest version.

  • From last week’s TechTuesday chat on Dell Deployment Pack (DDP) for ConfigMgr: “We buy Dell and will continue to as long as we know that there are folks within Dell working to help us get through our days a little easier.” The chat’s transcript covers a lot of ground on the imminent release of DDP.
