We took a trip this weekend to Castle Howard near York for their Christmas event. I decided it would be a good opportunity to use my 35mm prime lens that has be been buried in my bag for the better part of a year!
After upgrading to SP1 for SCCM 2012 R2 I found I could no longer edit my boot images.
I wrote a post a little while ago about my Puppet development workflow where I talked about using source control for your manifests and a CI server (Jenkins in that case) to automatically check your code and deploy it to your puppet master.
One of the biggest problems I’ve found with using Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and Hyper-V is that deploying a VM from a template can take a really long time (15 minutes in my case).
I’ve been working with puppet at Red Gate for a while now. Up until recently our code base has been fairly small – it was more of a trial than anything, but it has slowly proven itself and now nearly all new services are provisioned using puppet if it makes sense to.
Who needs psexec? We’ve got powershell…
I was watching this video of a session from TechEd on PowerShell earlier this week and I decided that I really should learn PowerShell properly and make use of it more. So, with that in mind, I’m going to make a point of using PowerShell wherever I can at work, and in the process hopefully learn a few things that I’ll post here.
