Wow! This is TOTALLY awesome! Graham Davies has posted an almost COMPLETE series all about MP authoring using Visual Studio with the Authoring Extensions, AKA VSAE:
(The yellow highlighted part will be posted soon I guess…)
His approach is simple: Not duplicating other good postings written by other SCOM heroes, but instead referring to those sources and adding his own ideas to the mix.
For serious MP authoring there is – to be frank – only VSAE. Yes, there is the Microsoft/Silect solution which covers some basic stuff, but when you want to get serious with MP authoring, VSAE is the only tool in town.
With the new series written by Graham you’ve got an excellent starting point for beginning with VSAE.
