Progress Feels Good

 

It’s been a rough week or two at work. Security tightening is never a bad thing but it sure can slow things down. Despite that, today I hit a major milestone on a project I’ve been working on for almost a year. Here it is in all it’s glory – a production instance of SCCM 2012 R2. It was a cool 25 minute smooth install for the most part.

InstallThere were a few times I ended up referring to this blog article from System Center Dudes. It’s a bit outdated, but overall solid. Probably worth the $20 PDF which is supposedly being maintained with updates.

Quick note about something I haven’t seen documented elsewhere: Now that Windows 10 is out, I thought I’d be OK doing this new installing using the Windows 10 ADK. Nope – Start with the 8.1 ADK so that pre-reqs are met and the base install can be completed. Then do your SP1 update, and then your cumulative update, and then finally remove ADK 8.1 and install ADK 10.
