Implementing Internet Based Client Management on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

leave a comment »


Implementing HTTPS on ConfigMgr 2012 R2This video explains how to configure Internet Based Client Management (IBCM) on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

An important component on implementing IBCM is to implement HTTPS. I have another video series on Implementing HTTPS on ConfigMgr 2012 R2.

As of the time of posting, I am still figuring out how to switch Internet/Intranet clients without requiring a firewall (just for purposes of demo). However in a nutshell, the absence of the Domain Controller renders the client an “Internet” client. I will update the post when I stumble into a development.

My Tech Video Music

leave a comment »


I was asked by some readers where I get the intro and outro music for my tech videos.

I composed and recorded them.

Geek Rock (“The Cowbell Song”) was recorded around 2008/2009 and was used for the Windows 7 Deployment Series Videos. And for those of you asking if the Saturday Night Live skit has something to do with this song, the answer is No. In fact, I only got to look up that SNL skit when someone commented “We need more cowbell” in the Deployment Series Part 1 video!

Here is the Windows 7 Deployment Series where Geek Rock was used.

External Sync was recorded around 2011 while I was experimenting with the arpeggiators of the Motif synthesizer. After I came across the arpeggiator pattern that we hear in the song, and cooked up the instruments in my head, my next problem was how to configure an external synchronization source. This is for me to sync up the Motif arpeggiator with the MIDI drum programming. I never got to solve that issue during recording.

Here it is!

Both songs were recorded in my home studio, which I guess some techies who produce tech videos have to accommodate vocal recordings for the tech videos.

Implementing HTTPS on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

with one comment


Implementing HTTPS on SCCM 2012 R2This video series explains how to configure HTTPS / PKI certs in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. It is intended for the ConfigMgr administrator who would want to get a quick understanding on implementing Configuration Manager 2012 R2 to use HTTPS.

To implement PKI certificates on ConfigMgr 2012 R2, there are four tasks that we need to perform:

  1. Implement Windows AD Certificate Authority
  2. Create Certificate Templates Required for SCCM
  3. Enroll the Certificates
  4. Configure the ConfigMgr Services for HTTPS

If you administer Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, with the proliferation of  devices that could be managed by Configuration Manager, and the fact that you could now manage devices even when not connected to the internal network, you will find yourself in a situation where you will need to configure HTTPS for Configuration Manager 2012 R2.

Implementing HTTPS on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager – Part 2 Certificate Templates

with one comment


This is Part 2 of the video series on Implementing HTTPS on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. This discusses the different certificate templates required, creating those templates and then enrolling certificates to  the servers using these templates.

Certificate Templates Required by Configuration Manager

  1. Client Certificate is used by all Configuration Manager clients
  2. Exportable Client Certificate is required for implementing HTTPS on Distribution Points
  3. Web Server Certificate is used by all MPs, DPs, SUPs, RSPs and other Configuration Manager services that use IIS.

Creating the Certificate Templates

  1. Create an Active Directory Global Group and grant Read, Enroll and Autoenroll permissions for each of the 3 templates.
  2. Configure the templates to use Subject Name (not Alternate Name as mentioned in the video) DNS format
  3. Publish the three templates to the CA and restart the Active Directory Certificate Service.

For more details, refer to this article Step-by-Step Example Deployment of the PKI Certificates for Configuration Manager: Windows Server 2008 Certification Authority.

My First Music Video Production

with 3 comments


This is the first music video I directed and produced. The band is called Pulse! from Singapore. This song won for them the top prize in the Yamaha Asian Beat 2010 Grand Finals in Bangkok, and they also bagged the Best Vocalist (Liza) and Best Bass Guitar Player (Izzudin) as well! So glad to have worked with this group of young, energetic musicians!
