MMS SD-B317 follow up

I would like to start by saying THANK YOU to all 625+ that attended mine and Pete session and made it to one of the top-10 sessions at MMS 2013 🙂 Based on the request in the evaluation form and requests after the session I will try to share all things shown in the session. Video of the session can be found here http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MMS/2013/SD-B317 , and PowerPoint SD-B317_Bengtsson. Marnix Wolf made some good notes during the session http://thoughtsonopsmgr.blogspot.com/2013/04/mms-2013-best-practices-for.html

The Excel sheet we used during the session to estimate the Orchestrator database size can be found here, Estimate the Orchestrator database size.

I have written a set of runbooks that will check your other runbooks according to best practices, download the runbook validator here. The “runbook validator” will check most of the things that Pete and I talked about during our session.

The runbook we discussed during the BOF session is included in this BOFdemo export file.


Please post a comment if you have any more questions around what we showed and discussed in the session


  1. I just wanted to stop by and thank you for an outstanding session. This was definitely in the top 3 as far as best sessions is concerned.
