The “WHY” Series

One of my sessions at MMS this year was titled “The WHY of Configuration Manager”. It focused on why would you choose to do things a particular way in SCCM. There are many tasks that can be performed multiple ways in SCCM…and plenty of resources to tell you how to do those things. But there aren’t many resources to answer the question of “Why”. Why would I choose to do a task (or configure a setting…or design a hierarchy…etc) one way instead of another. The session took on several of these questions and attempted to answer the question of “Why?”.

With that in mind, my plan is to start a series of blog posts that I’m calling “The WHY Series”. The plan is to think through the options of a task/setting/design/etc and lay out the reasons why you might choose to implement things one way or another. At this point I don’t foresee a specific outline for the topics to be covered. I also don’t know that it will be solely limited to SCCM questions…although that is where many of the initial posts in the series will come from.

Also…I would love some feedback. Is this something you are interested in? If so…what topics would you like to see covered? Either leave a comment on this post, send me a message via my contact form, or ping me on Twitter.

Check back soon…I hope to have the first post up this week.

  1. Why would you use a virtual machine as opposed to physical hardware for implementation of ConfigMgr Site Servers?
    Why would you use a virtual machine instead of physical hardware to generate a deployment image?
    Why would you use a UDI Task Sequence instead of a ZTI task sequence?
    Why would you use hard-link migrations/ upgrades from one OS to another instead of using the SMP?
