Session 1
“ConfigMgr Daily Maintenance and Upkeep”

While ConfigMgr generally does a good job of taking care of itself, there is additional care and feeding that an administrator of any non-trivial site should undertake in order to maintain performance, ensure health and operations, and ultimately prevent any RGEs (“Resume Generating Events”). This session will cover these in the form of recurring manual tasks, automated tasks, configuration tweaking, and general proactive, preventive maintenance and monitoring tasks.
