Management Packs, do you find them hard to build. How can we help?


The thought of creating the Management Pack can be, well scary. Where is the knowledge base, the info that we need to learn and understand then go onto creating the pack that fits out need? System Center Central is a great resource for this, why guess when you can get great advice on this site from very clever people who wish to help. Otherwise there are a few sites or people that we can follow like Dan Rodgers, David Allen and a few others.

By why not have ago in a test environment start with a small theme, learn as you go then move on to bigger MP when the time is right for you?

This is a great contest and although coming to an end if you choose to enter now is the time, if not no problem just submit your pack if you want to this site where we will help you measured to the effort you have put in already.
