This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a pretty good grasp on DS 6.9 but have never used the CMS/SMS suite and it was just recently purchased without any training credits or anything (was never asked).  Anyway, I am looking for a book, video, webinar, or webcast on a basic setup and configuration for AT LEAST SMS 7.x?  Can someone help out and/or guide to somewhere?  There is not even anything on Amazon at this time.  We have roughly 1300 machines that will need patching, inventoried, etc. I am a bit dismayed that Symantec just wants $$ for everything and does not include training and/or a book anymore?  We just spent about the same amout of money with EMC and they GAVE us a years online training for FREE!!

posted on this website (select videos or articles instead of forums) and (although not as much 7.x content there). There is loads of documentation available on the official doc website. Shane Faber has his CMS7 Cookbooks on his website.

There are online and handon training you can purchase, as well as attending Symantec Vision, a conference that offers a mix of presentation and training materials (amongst other options).

Don't forget the knowledgebase, SYMWISE, which is getting better in pulling up good answers to your queries.

Last, but not least, check out the version 6 to 7 migration link on the upper right side of the forum.

Of course, you can always post your questions here, and we'll do our best and be glad to help you out.
