Busy Busy Busy!

October 16, 2008

Have been so busy lately with work and things we are doing there. Binding macs to the domain, gathering advanced inventory of them through Inventory tasks from the notification server. I have the 3rd piece of the imaging series as well as another article for updating the ProcessorDesc.ini file to add descriptions for newer processors.

Should have these articles to the juice in the next week… so sorry for the long delay on the imaging article.

In other news, I have passed my Notification System Foundation exam with a 96% 🙂

This Altiris Juice article that I’ve written details the differences between using “model_num” and “prod_name” when doing hardware independent imaging. You can view the post here. Be sure to read dfrancis’s comment at the end of the story, very interesting.

I have started a 3 part series on the Altiris Juice website that cover building a master image. You can find part 1 here. You can find part 2 here. Part 3 is finished but has not been uploaded or published on the site. More to follow!

My article covering the installation of the NS and DS agents for Macintosh has been posted on The Juice. Here is an excerpt

“Macintosh information for Altiris is a little sparse and I’ve often been left in the cold with questions. Hopefully this article will help guide those who are trying to get Macs to show up in the Deployment Console.”

You can read the rest of the article here.

I wrote an article for the Altiris Juice website which was published. You can take a look at the article here.
