Hi All,
I need to brush up on my Server 2012, SCCM, AD and Citrix knowledge,
Since I have a longish cycle ride  to work every day I thought Id try and find resources I can listen to
and wondered if anyone could recommend any podcasts or other audio IT self learning resources for Server administrators.
Cheers

Hi,

I like the get-scripting Powershell podcast by Jonathon Medd.
The two other places are Channel 9 and Microsoft Virtual Academy (mva). There is some overlap, but both are free and Channel 9 has MP3 files you can download.


For ConfiMgr:
https://channel9.msdn.com/Series/System-Center-Configuration-Manager-Deploying-Software-and-Operating-Systems 

You have to join mva but it is free and then you can save courses for offline by clicking on the download in the top right.


For Channel 9, there's a script you can use to download things en mass on the MS scripting gallery:
https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Channel9-Session-04b2558b

which makes things a lot easier.

As for YouTube, yes it's free but stick to content by MVPs. I've found that quite a lot of content is either wrong or explained how they think it works, not how it actually works, or show you bad ways to do things.
Names to look for are Kent Agerlund, Johan Ardimark,, Maik Koster.
