Good Grief.. Just skipped about a months worth of content here... ugh. Been way to tired and way to far behind to keep up. And with work, just don't have time.
Smoking some cheese after a weekend of normal chores and house work. Also working offloading some images from the phone.. Don't want to believe that tomorrow is Monday again... sigh.. oh well. Time marches on.
I can empathize. The past two weeks at work have yielded me little time to take part in forums.
I have come home completely beat. It's a 45-60 min drive in, and a bit more coming home. This makes for a full 10 hour day really. And i'm not sitting like I had been, so this is good, but I'm just not accustom to it. Oh and the freight elevator was out two days..
I've managed to deploy about 30 24" monitors, manage some inventory, learn a bit about OrcaScan for barcode scanning, and get two computers deployed - with stress.
State applications are horrrid... They have SCCM and gods I miss ScreenConnect, and Chocolatey... I mean barf.
They have had to build and move to a new SCCM server, which broke every package they had... not that they were good to start with.
It's crazy the amount of personal touches you have to make on EACH stupid software in some cases.. Like,.. this one REQUIRES Firefox 52.2.... NOTHING ELSE works!!! like FFS WTH.
Ah well.. It's a pay check. I went into this as a stopgap measure.
We use SCCM (and GPO for stuff). I actually don't mind it, I've just never had the time to really dive into it and use it "right." My time with it has been more of make-what's-already-there-work. Mind you I had zero experience with SCCM prior to this gig.
For the most part I don't mind it. But I miss the SC Command line and Chat. It was nice to just do things to the remote computer without having to interact with the end user.
It is what it is. I'm still \learning how it works
Are you working a state contract now? I assume you can't suggest something like Mesh Central - no cost except for the VM space/compute/RAM needed - assuming they have that, it's basically free.
For now - yes.
And not likely moving from SCCM in my life time here.
