Great post by Peter Daalmans on Details of New Remote Control Features (CEP).
After a period without any Community Evaluation Program session, another session was held today. This time Eric Orman presented the latest information about the Remote Control feature in Configuration Manager 2012.
Like mentioned earlier the gold (CTRL-ALT-DEL) key is back! Woho! The feature is rewritten from scratch because of security issues like there where in SMS 2003 and earlier. Let’s see what’s there.
