The January 2017 MEMUG session drew great interest and a large crowd. Many thanks to Kevin Fason (from the community) for demoing Upgrade Analytics on how he uses it to help his organization plan and prepare migration to Windows 10. Outlined below are resources and additional tips that he asked to be passed along to everyone.
- Above all, be patient once you run the script in a workstation. There are a lot of moving parts. Generally data shows up in the portal within 48 hours but can take longer.
- When you make changes in the console it will take a day for the snapshot to update and the “buckets” to appear and populate.
- You can sort by multiple headers by using commas such as below. Note the headers are caps and your query will be case sensitive.
Importance="Not reviewed" Type=UAApp IsRollup=true RollupLevel=Granular | sort AppVendor desc, AppName desc, AppVersion desc
- Another neat query is this that sorts by reason
Type=UAApp | measure count() by Issue
Our annual holiday gathering for MEMUG had a great turnout and was well received by everyone! Thank you to Joe Raleigh of Microsoft for traveling to Denver to present on his very informative “12 Troubleshooting Tools for your Stocking”. His presentation materials can be downloaded from OneDrive.
An exported PDF of the July 2016 MEMUG presentation is now available to be downloaded from Microsoft OneDrive.

Resources for the BitLocker portion of the September 2012 MEMUG session can be accessed with the OneDrive link below. It includes the PowerPoint presentation as well as an example task sequence which can be used as an example for configuring BitLocker during a ConfigMgr 2012 task sequence.

Wally Mead gave a great presentation on the free Cireson Remote Manage app and the next version of Configuration Manager. If you missed the presentation or would just like to review the content, his PowerPoint slides can be downloaded from http://1drv.ms/1FXFn8U.
During the Q&A and feedback for the Remote Manage app, a couple of us stressed the need to be able to run the tool with alternate credentials (such as an admin account). It was found that the shortcut created by the initial setup doesn’t allow to run as a different user. So if you need this ability, then create a new shortcut straight from the .exe, which does allow this functionality.
As discussed in the Nov/Dec 2014 MEMUG session, the following list of Microsoft security updates has recently caused known and widespread problems. Prior to deployment in your environment, you may want to ensure thorough testing has been completed for functionality of your business systems and/or applications.
