Now Micro has recently launched a new vlog series called What’s in the Lab. This series features Bernard Carter, Chief Technology Officer, going over various players we have in our lab. Our innovative digital signage & IoT solutions and services help customers from a range of industries better procure, deploy, manage and secure their visual communication devices.
Our first video covers the Lenovo ThinkEdge SE30, a rugged media player built to face the most hostile environments. The SE30 also uses the latest 11th Generation Intel® processors that run Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning to deliver the insights you need. The unit is also fanless and can function in a thermal range of -20 – 60C.
Stay tuned to our YouTube channel every Thursday for the next 4 weeks to see how our solutions and services can take your IoT beyond the edge!
The Configuration Manager Console is the primary tool used to manage an organization’s Configuration Manager environment. Currently, when using the ConsoleSetup.exe file to install the Configuration Manager Console silently, the R2 RTM version of the console is installed. Also, the Report Viewer is left out of the install. Now Micro’s team of expert engineers presents the process for creating a Configuration Manager application that will silently install the console and the report viewer while also applying the latest cumulative update.
The Windows Management Framework 4.0 is an update for devices running Windows 7 SP1, Windows Embedded 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, and Windows Server 2012. It allows these operating systems to gain some of the new improvements and functionality available in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
Deploying .NET Framework 4.5.2 as a Package/Program has always been a possibility, and now it can even be deployed with Software Update Management as a feature pack. But, since the .NET Framework’s only purpose is to support other applications, it makes a lot of sense to be able to deploy it using the Application Model in Configuration Manager. This means the .NET Framework can be defined as a prerequisite for another application. Having .NET Framework 4.5.2 ready to go as an application means any requirement can be covered .NET Framework 4 or above.

During a recent Microsoft Office 365 migration, Now Micro’s Cloud Sherpa, Micah Linehan, encountered a tenancy migration where he had to work through reinstalling Exchange on premise. In this particular case, a vase majority of users had previously been created without Exchange. As Micah moved forward and installed Exchanges, the users were directory synchronized; however, a remote user in Exchange was not. He put together the following recommendations and best practices for working through these issues, as he found there were few technical resources (articles, blogs, etc.) out there. Hopefully this post will alleviate some of the confusion and ease any off boarding or tenancy conversion issues within Office 365.
