So, is been a couple of years since I have been the blogger I had once been around SharePoint. But with the release of System Center 2012 and the upcoming release of Server 2012 and WIndows 8 pending, I felt it was a great time to start blogging again. For those of you still subscribed, similar to SharePoint, my goal with this blog is to share what I feel are the best links, best resources, and share personal experiences around these technologies. For me, it ends up serving as my personal library of these items, and hopefully for you, it will do the same, or at least help you find the resources you need.
The link above will give you access to the admin folder for non enterprise versions of Office 2010. This is critical to create a silent install (create an msp and place it in the updates folder of the structure). You activite the Office admin tool by "running setup /admin" once you create the admin directory from the download.
This is the link to the steps for Office 2010 and SCCM
One snag I ran into, and knew I needed to set this way but can be lost in all the screens for configuration, is that if you don't state the package does not require the user to be logged on (default), while creating the program for the package in SCCCM, it won't populate when you go to create the install application task sequence (whats funny is we test for this condition but not if you actually checked the "can be called from a task box directly" but I chalk that up to learning :)
Hope this helps folks!
As I continue to dive through challenges for OS Deployment, I keep coming across great links that help me along the way. Wanted to share this one:
Great materials here (also, make sure you check out the pre-reqs before installing, there are quite a few required to ensure a succesful installation.

Came across this one while looking for information and think its a great resource that wanted to share.
Turns out permissions are missing.
For each share the document requests you make, you need to add NT Authority\System with Read/Write permissions (Package$ in particular). Found this out through the comments on the deployment guys site (which the original post was to videos you might find interesting)
Hope this helps!
Turns out the file does not always update even though you may have updated the settings via the IIS manager. The steps here fixed the issue I was experiencing in my SCCM 2007 SP2 R2 instalaltion with Windows Server 2008 R2.
Read all about it here:
Gives you step by step directions for installing MOSS on Windows Server 2008 and provides other information.
Nice article I ran across this morning.
Great site for getting started on developing on the Microsoft Platform.
I wanted to share this link for what I think is a good article on configuring SSL for Host Header accessed sites. This is a question I have seen come up often with customers. Enjoy!
May be old news, but it is new news to me. Here is a link to the SharePoint Deployment Guide, a quick read leaves me with very good impressions of the detail provided.
I also wanted to share this example Logical diagram from the product team, which is GREAT.
