Endpoint Manager and Intune Learning Resources for Always On VPN Administrators

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM), formerly Intune, is the recommended solution for deploying and managing Windows Always On VPN client configuration settings. Always On VPN is designed for Mobile Device Management (MDM), with configuration settings deployed specifically to the VPNv2 Configuration Service Provider (CSP) interface.


Getting up to speed on all things MEM isn’t difficult at all. I’ve found the MEM community to be exceedingly helpful, and there are many available training resources in various formats from which to choose.


The following is a list of Microsoft Endpoint Manager books Always On VPN administrators will find most helpful for learning about MEM.


The Intune Training channel on YouTube is an incredibly valuable resource for Always On VPN administrators learning MEM. Hosted by Steven Hosking, Adam Gross, and Ben Reader, there are countless videos covering important MEM configuration tasks.


Pluralsight offers video training courses for a wide variety of IT-related topics. Recently I published the  Implementing Always On VPN video training course. There are several Microsoft Endpoint Manager video training courses available as well. Pluralsight is available via subscription. You can sign up for a free trial here if you don’t have a subscription.


The Midwest Management Summit (MMS) is the premier event for systems management professionals. Their annual conference takes place each spring in the U.S. (Minneapolis, MN). The event is the best place to learn about Microsoft Endpoint Manager and network with systems management professionals worldwide.

As a reminder, MEM topics such as certificate deployment and Always On VPN profile deployment and management are covered in detail in both my Implementing Always On VPN book and the Implementing Always On VPN video training course on Pluralsight. 😁

Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Cookbook

Recently I had the opportunity to read Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Cookbook by Edvaldo Cardoso published by Packt Publishing. I really enjoy their “cookbook” series as they take complex concepts like virtual machine management and break it down in to detailed, step-by-step guidance that can be consumed in easily digestible chunks. The style lends itself well to following along in a virtual lab, working through the steps outlined in each chapter to configure a component or enable a specific feature. My specific goal with this title was to learn how to implement the Hyper-V network virtualization features of Hyper-V with System Center 2012. The book met my needs perfectly. Of course the entire book will be helpful to datacenter administrators interested in leveraging the power of server and network virtualization in their organizations. If you working with System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 today, or are planning to deploy it in the future, you’ll definitely want to have this book in your reference library.
