Location:  Microsoft Office
Time:  5pm

We have a special opportunity this month to welcome Sherry Kissinger (Wells Fargo, Microsoft MVP) to our user group. Sherry took over the old monster.mof years ago and has since become known as 'the' industry expert on SMS\SCCM inventory. As luck would have it, she is in town next week and has offered to speak on ConfigMgr Hardware Inventory and customizing mof files. If you manage a SMS/SCCM site you will not want to miss this month, as Sherry will deep dive into an area that has confused many of us.

Topics to be covered:
  -  sms_def.mof vs. configuration.mof
  -  Extending: WMI, Registry. HKCU issues
  -  TRUE vs. FALSE. How to figure out what you want changed to be FALSE (if default is true).
  -  One or two extensions; (local admin, McAfee/Symantec, Physical Memory)

Please use the clicktoattend link below to sign up for the meeting. We use this to determine the food order and if you register using this link you will be eligible for our swag drawing.  This month we have a Microsoft Fingerprint Reader to be given away.  Directions are in the link as well.

If you've never been to a meeting we have a very open and welcoming atmosphere. Free pizza and beverages are provided usually around 4:30 and the meeting starts at 5:00 typically ending between 7:00-7:30.
