When considering a managed print services provider, here are three key questions you need to ask to ensure superior service and support.
Here's how to fix Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2012 error code 0X87D00668: Failed to install update(s), Software update still detected as actionable after apply.

I’m often asked by our customers how to save costs related to printing, copying and faxing. One of the easiest solutions to implement, with cost savings realized almost right out of the gate, is Print Governance.
In the case of an outage, it's important for organizations to prepare their disaster recovery (DR) strategy now so they have a plan in place to prevent business downtime and revenue loss.
One basic task I found very underwhelming in the Microsoft Azure Resource Manager (ARM) portal was the backup. If you're thinking about taking a snapshot of a server as a precaution before you make any updates—sorry—snapshots don’t exist. You'll have to replace snapshots with backup and restore. I’ll break this down into the three parts: Backup, Recover, and Restore.
Did you know that you can configure NetScaler so users don’t have to type in the https:// when going to StoreFront or the NetScaler Gateway URLs?
More often than not, this is accomplished using a crude method in which port 80 http Virtual Server is configured on the same IP as the https site and the Redirect URL field in the protection section of the Virtual Server is set. While this works just fine, it unfortunately also renders a permanently Down Virtual Server in the Load Balancing screen.
Good news though, there is a better way to configure the redirection that renders all of the Virtual Servers as Up by using Responder Policies.

Ever try running an extra thick piece of paper through your printer only to have it cause a pain-in-the-you-know-what jam?
If you’re like the rest of us, you have. (Queue paper jam meme #1)
Even if you’re running the sheet of paper through the bypass tray (which can accommodate specialty papers more readily), can one sheet of paper really make that much of a difference?
I recently ran into a snag where my Citrix XenApp Session Host was created in my Azure Premium Storage account. When you capture an image as a template, Azure places the template in the same storage account in which the server is currently running.
The Template folder is hidden by default in the ARM portal. You can use Azure Storage Explorer to navigate and see the Templates folder to get the template path and vhd name. However, the Storage Explorer doesn’t show the Template folder in the Premium Storage account. I can only guess that this is a bug.
Here’s a work around by running a few PowerShell commands. Now I’m able to see the Template folder right from the ARM portal.
The new Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.9 has a lot to offer and worth making the upgrade, but being at the front of the line to implement a new release can also come with the risk of a few bugs. Here’s one we've come across and a quick fix to resolve the error.
