Of the above softwares, Configuration Manager and Operations Manager are the most known so far. Most often Configuration Manager and Operations Manager are referred to as SCCM and SCOM respectively.

SCCM 2012R2 and SCOM 2012R2 skills are currently high in demand with regards to IT Systems Engineer roles.

Also in demand are the ability to upgrade the 2012R2 versions to 2016.

I've written a few tutorials on installing SCCM 2012 R2 and SCOM2012 R2, with the plan to write tutorials on how to upgrade these to 2016 version.

The following is a tutorial on How To Install SCCM 2012 R2:

How to Schedule an Exchange PowerShell Script in Task Scheduler

Exchange Management Shell
Since Exchange 2007, Microsoft has provided the Exchange Management Shell so administrators can manage all aspects of the Exchange server from the command line.



The Exchange Management Shell has Exchange specific PowerShell cmdlets. These Exchange cmdlets are not normally available in an ordinary PowerShell command environment.



An example of what can be done in the Exchange Management Shell is to run a PowerShell script to list all the mailboxes on the Exchange server to a file. You can output columns based on display name, size of the mailbox, last logon, and other available mailbox attributes.

You can also schedule a batch migration of mailboxes from one database to another such as the migration of mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2013.

Scheduling the PowerShell Script

Once you have written a PowerShell script and utilised the Exchange cmdlets, you can run it with no problems inside the Exchange Management Shell. If you were to try to run it under a …

How To Migrate Mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016 using PowerShell

The Scenario

Your organisation have decided to migrate from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016. The Exchange 2016 server have been installed into your current Exchange Organization.

The common parameters that I use for the New-MoveRequest cmdlet is :

New-MoveRequest -Identity 'useralias@somedomain.com' -TargetDatabase "DB02" -BadItemLimit 10

The -Identity parameter identifies the mailbox to be migrated. I usually use the e-mail address of the mailbox for the identity since it's uniqu…

Elastic Load Balancing in AWS

Elastic Load Balancing is a service which allows for the automatic distribution of incoming traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances.These EC2 instances should be in separate availability zones in a particular region.This enables applications to achieve fault tolerance and high availability if they are designed so that they can be accessed from multiple server instances. Sometimes an application may not need to be designed as such if they both point to the same data source. More often than not, these applications can be run from anywhere. They are good candidates to be put behind the Elastic Load Balancing service.It is up to the system or cloud administrator to ensure that identical versions of the application exist across all servers that are going to be load balanced.

The Elastic Load Balancing service can be integrated with Auto Scaling in AWS. As more load is put on your application servers, additional EC2 instances can be launched by Auto Scaling.Once the load dissipates. EC…
