Deploying WPA-2 personal WIFI profiles using ConfigMgr & Intune

For hybrid environments (that being ConfigMgr integrated with Microsoft Intune), it’s not possible to deploy a WIFI profile using a pre-shared secret in the UI. This will however not prevent you from creating and deploying WPA-2 Personal security WIFI profiles in the console. You will just be deploying the WIFI profile without the WIFI password.  […]

Intune Extensions will not install

It’s a common issue, but still worth mentioning. Being a Full Administrator is NOT the same as having full control of all features in the ConfigMgr console. An example is enabling new Intune Extensions like the one released in late December. As usual you are prompted when new Extensions are available. In this example I’m […]

Welcome to the Coretech x-mas blog Calendar where we will give you a little insiders tip every single day in December.   Even if I don’t deploy 3rd party updates with SCUP 2011 I still use the tool for two purposes. I always upgrade my ConfigMgr clients and consoles to the latest CU using the […]

Upgrading ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Primary site server from Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2

Maybe my most boring blog post ever, but just finished upgrading the primary site server from Windows Server 2012 to Windows Server 2012 R2. After the upgrade I performed a ConfigMgr Site reset (not required, but just in case). Testing out the different features and all but one looked to be doing just fine. The […]

Why do my ConfigMgr clients not report having the new CU3 installed?
