Advanced Automation of Housekeeping Tasks within MEM in the Real World
Description:
An environment needs the care to work flawlessly and securely. One important point is to clean up orphaned items, check naming conventions, and much more. But what does that mean in a real environment? Normally, we have various systems like MEMCM, Intune, Azure AD, AD, and hopefully an asset management system in use and should detect and sync differences. In this session, we will show possible ways to achieve this based on past projects. Attendees will get access to not published scripts that are shown during the session.

What you will learn:
  • How can I save time and frustration?
  • How can I detect and resolve deviations automatically?
  • Azure Automation knowledge tailored to MEM engineers
  • Stories from the field

PowerShell and MEM Automation - Get Your Head Out Of The Console
Description:
There are no doubt tasks that you do on a repeated basis that just eat away hours of your day. You get a list of users from some other team and they ask you to create a collection to deploy content. You update your base image with the latest updates. You're standing up a new distribution point and retiring another. You're regularly creating applications in the exact same way with just the metadata being a little bit different. While not everything is ripe for automation if it's worth doing more than once, it might be worth looking at ways to outsource your work to scripts. Of course, with any venture like this, there are good ways and bad ways to slice it. Join us as we talk about different things that we have automated and the lessons we've learned along the way.

What you will learn:
  • Repeatable tasks that almost everyone does
  • Things to avoid when automating
  • Modules to help you along the way
  • Sharing is caring - contributing to already existing automation scripts

Windows 365 - Already Started
Description:
While Cloud PCs can be treated similarly to physical devices, these Azure-hosted Cloud PCs do have unique differences from their physical counterparts. Fortunately, Endpoint Manager has additional capabilities tailored to ensure end-users have a good experience, the Cloud PCs are secure, and the type of Cloud PC deployed is the right size. This session will demonstrate how to leverage Security Baselines to make securing the device straightforward. Endpoint Analytics' Cloud PC specific functionality will be demonstrated to show where end-user experience problems are occurring, as well as ensuring the SKU of the Cloud PC is just what the users need. The target audience should have some familiarity with Windows 365 Cloud PCs, but hands-on experience is not required.

What you will learn:
  • Security Baselines
  • Endpoint Analytics
  • Right-Sizing Cloud PCs

Do You Want to Build a Home Lab?
Description:
Do you want to build a home lab? ... C'mon, let's go and play! ... I'll never test in prod again ... because that's a sin ... it's like prod has gone awaaaaay! ... ...

How many of us test our changes in production? How many of us have an actual lab or development environment to test changes and new features? Do you learn by watching computer-based training or just reading Microsoft Docs? Having worked in many small and medium-sized environments, we know that a good lab or development environment just isn't available for many organizations. And for many, the thought of building their own environment is super daunting. This doesn't have to be the case - home labs are a very affordable way to test new ideas, get your feet wet in new technologies, or even shore up some skills in a product you already work with. Join us as we talk about:
  • What equipment do you need to get started (or what you might already have)
  • The important pieces to understand (Hypervisors, Virtual Networking, etc.)
  • Overcoming knowledge obstacles (a.k.a. fears)
  • Automating the creation of your labs (build, destroy, rebuild)
  • The fastest MEMCM Lab build this side of Azure
  •  Building an Intune Autopilot lab

What you will learn:
  • What you need to get started with your own home lab
  • How to build a MEMCM Lab in less than 60 minutes
  • Building an Intune Autopilot Lab

TPM Management - Getting Ready for Windows 11
Description:
TPM Management is about as much fun as going to the dentist. With Windows 11, TPM is one of the hardware requirements, which means unless you already managing TPMs for things like BitLocker, then you are going to need to start. In addition, TPMs also need to be flashed or updated from time to time for security vulnerabilities. Flashing the TPM often requires clearing the TPM and certain vendors make this more difficult than it needs to be. In this session, we will cover what it takes to get your TPM estate in order for Windows 11 (or anything that requires a TPM).

What you will learn:
  • Why you should be keeping up with TPM updates
  • How to automatically configure, provision, and update the TPM

A fun, and entertaining, yet highly educational session with technical questions about ConfigMgr, focused largely on the latest release of the product. At the request of Kim's therapist, this year will have a new rule. Mentioning Kim's once lost laptop won't only get you disqualified, it'll get you escorted out of the room.

Automations to Brag About
Description:
Big Bank has built big and small automations. Come see which automations we are most proud of, what problems we had to overcome while building them, and what problems we've encountered when they were deployed.

Every automation we talk about will be open sourced so you can implement it in your own environments tomorrow!

Automations we'll demo and open source:
  • RunAs: How do we run code that needs to run as another user account?  What if we want to run as a gMSA and use no password? We have a module for that!
  • APE: Process enforcement to ensure no deployments happen in ConfigMgr without proper approval
  • Monitoring: A module that uses Pester tests to alert us if there's a problem in the environment
  • EFPosh: Turn PowerShell classes into database tables easily to quickly query databases, modify data, or even build from scratch!

What you will learn:
  • PowerShell tricks to process big data
  • SQL tricks to process big data
  • How to monitor an environment with Pester
  • What security challenges have we encountered

Azure Monitor and Azure Automation Solutions That Can Replace SCOM and MEM
Description:
Learn about two solutions in a step-by-step manner that (1) deliver server infrastructure monitoring and (2) achieve server OS update management for Azure VMs and Azure Arc servers. Make informed decisions about when, where, and how to replace SCOM and MEM as business and technical opportunities emerge.
  • The monitoring solution encompasses an assembly of Azure microservices that probe and assess the availability, configuration, and performance of a server’s OS. It achieves parity with existing industry-standard tools like SCOM for monitoring core server functions (availability, configuration, and performance). This solution represents a new industry paradigm: suitable, low-cost server monitoring from Azure Monitor delivered via a no-cost cloud service management platform (Azure Arc) that offers infinite scale and global availability.
  • Update Management in Azure Automation is a Microsoft solution to manage OS updates for Windows and Linux virtual machines in Azure, in on-premises environments, and in other cloud environments. With this solution you can quickly assess the status of available updates on one or all agent machines and manage the process of installing required updates for servers. The solution can either run in parallel to any existing updating tools like MEM as an out-of-band check, or completely replace an existing server OS updating solution by performing the update installations. Except for microcharges to log machine status, the Update Management solution with Azure Automation is free of charge.

What you will learn:
  • Achieve a clear understanding of the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) management control plane that delivers monitoring, security, access, and governance using Azure Lighthouse and Azure Policy
  • Deploy a curated set of Azure Monitor rules including detection of the most common alerts from rules and alert-generating monitors contained in the SCOM management packs for Windows Server OS
  • Author an Azure Logic App that reads the update group tags on Azure VMs and Azure Arc servers and writes them to Azure Log Analytics
  • Create Azure Automation scheduled update jobs using PowerShell, one job for each ‘computer group update window’ combination

Maintaining BIOS in Intune (Option 1)
Description:
Traditional ConfigMgr admins have grown up with tight control measures to allow them to deploy driver and BIOS packages. The move to modern management with MS Intune has made these tasks more challenging. With MS Intune you can use Windows Update for Business or utilize OEM software to keep your estate up to date. The main issue with this is that you lose control and the opportunity to perform thorough testing before you release it to your clients. In this session, you will learn about all the options using native options in Intune to maintain your drivers and BIOS. You will also learn about how to use OEM and community tools together to apply complete control over when a BIOS or Driver update is being deployed to your end-user devices and how to report on your current status.

What you will learn:
  • Understand the built-in functionality for BIOS and driver management.
  • Understand the risks associated with not maintaining BIOS and drivers.
  • Get real-world examples of maintaining BIOS and drivers via Intune
  • Support multiple OEMs without having to deal with multiple portals or tools.

Maintaining BIOS in Intune (Option 2)
Description:
Traditional ConfigMgr admins have grown up with tight control measures to allow them to deploy driver and BIOS packages. The move to modern management with MS Intune has made these tasks more challenging. With MS Intune you can use Windows Update for Business or utilize OEM software to keep your estate up to date. The main issue with this is that you lose control and the opportunity to perform thorough testing before you release it to your clients. In this session, you will learn about all the options using native options in Intune to maintain your drivers and BIOS. You will also learn about how to use OEM and community tools together to apply complete control over when a BIOS or Driver update is being deployed to your end-user devices and how to report on your current status.

What you will learn:
  • Understand the built-in functionality for BIOS and driver management.
  • Understand the risks associated with not maintaining BIOS and drivers.
  • Get real-world examples of maintaining BIOS and drivers via Intune
  • Support multiple OEMs without having to deal with multiple portals or tools.

What you will learn:
  • Learn the basics of GUI building in PowerShell with XAML
