    15. 15. OS Deployment UI Amit Gatenyo Infrastructure & Security Manager Dario
    16. 16. Task Sequence Actions <ul><li>Two kinds of actions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fixed set of built-in actions that are implemented as part of ConfigMgr </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Custom actions that can be any command line executable, including running VBscript </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No requirement that OS deployment operations be included </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hence task sequences provide a more general purpose sequencing mechanism in ConfigMgr </li></ul></ul>
    17. 17. OS Deployment Architecture DP MP Site Server Client 1. Admin creates OS image and boot image and replicates to DP 2. Admin creates Task Sequence and advertises to collection containing client 3. Client retrieves Task Sequence from MP and executes it 4. Client retrieves boot image and OS image referenced in Task sequence 5. Client sends status as Task Sequence executes
    18. 18. OS Deployment Architecture Bare Metal starts here
    19. 19. Task Sequences Amit Gatenyo Infrastructure & Security Manager Dario
    20. 20. Driver Catalog <ul><li>Catalog of ConfigMgr- managed device drivers </li></ul><ul><li>“ Drivers” node </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Import drivers into this node </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set properties on drivers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assign drivers to Driver Packages </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ Driver Packages” node </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ConfigMgr packages that are copied to DPs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Typically group related drivers into one package </li></ul></ul>
    21. 21. Driver Catalog <ul><li>Used to implement “one worldwide image” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lay down generic OS image onto hard drive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Scan hardware for devices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Retrieve corresponding drivers and install into deployed image </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Boot into new OS image with all required drivers already present </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Can populate Vista driver store on target computer </li></ul>
    22. 22. Driver Catalog <ul><li>Task sequence actions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Auto Apply Drivers”: automatically determines needed drivers and selectively downloads and inserts into deployed image </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Apply Driver Package”: inserts all drivers in the package into the deployed image </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Both actions run in Windows PE </li></ul></ul>
    23. 23. Driver Catalog Amit Gatenyo Infrastructure & Security Manager Dario
    24. 24. PXE <ul><li>Integrate with Windows 2008 WDS PXE server </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Managed as an ConfigMgr site role </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use “Import Computer Information” wizard to create computer records (DDRs) in ConfigMgr database </li></ul><ul><li>Advertise task sequence to imported computers </li></ul><ul><li>PXE boot target computer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PXE server responds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Checks ConfigMgr database </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Downloads Windows PE </li></ul></ul>
    25. 25. WDS & ConfigMgr Integration New Computer ConfigMgr Site Server 3. ConfigMgr provider in WDS looks for computer in ConfigMgr database 4. If computer is found, WDS proceeds. If not found, WDS tries next provider 5. WDS Server downloads WinPE to new computer ConfigMgr MP WDS PXE Server hosts multiple providers. ConfigMgr puts its provider first in the list. WDS Server 6. ConfigMgr code in WinPE contacts MP to get task sequence that was advertised 1. Admin advertises task sequence to collection containing new computer 2. New computer PXE boots Site DB
    26. 26. User State Migration <ul><li>Uses Vista User State Migration Tool </li></ul><ul><li>Repository is State Migration Point </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SMP is a new ConfigMgr site role </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A file share with ConfigMgr management software </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple SMPs can be configured per site </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ConfigMgr records relationship between old and new system so only the new system can retrieve the state </li></ul><ul><ul><li>State is encrypted while stored on SMP and while in transit over the network </li></ul></ul>
    27. 27. <ul><li>ConfigMgr drives down OS deployment costs </li></ul><ul><li>Highly flexible & end to end via task sequences </li></ul><ul><li>Builds on tools provided in Vista/Windows 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>An integral part of Microsoft System Center family </li></ul>Summary &quot; הבנו שהטמעת Configuration Manager תאפשר לנו לנהל את תחנות העבודה והשרתים באופן פשוט ולהבין בקלות איזה תוכנות מותקנות ועם איזה חומרה עובד כל אחד &quot; גיל קרפט , מנהל סיסטם , סימטרון
