    8. 8. Microsoft System Center 2012R2 The good, the bad and the automated
    9. 9. Agenda • Introduction • Overview - System Center Suite capabilities • System Center components and what they do • Benefits of unified management, integration & automation • System Center on-premise and in the Cloud demonstration • How to get started or if you have System Center where to go next
    10. 10. Introduction • IT has to let go • What does systems management even mean? • Business unit leaders call the shots • BYOD is here to stay • Cloud is the new reality • System Center does not stand alone – – PowerShell, Azure, O365, SQL, mobile • What’s an IT guy to do?
    11. 11. Overview - System Center Suite Capabilities • Virtual Machine Manager • Service Manager • Configuration Manager • Orchestrator • Operations Manager • Endpoint Protection • Data Protection Manager
    12. 12. V-SCOOPED
    13. 13. Data Center Automation • Template based VM deployment • Monitoring of critical servers • Backup and disaster recovery • Dynamic scaling of heavy use applications
    14. 14. Client Automation • User driven incident management • Self-service request portal • Automated provisioning • Web based knowledgebase
    15. 15. Service Desk Automation • Automated incident remediation • Change Management Workflows • Runbook Driven Escalation • ITIL / MOF aligned knowledge management
    16. 16. System Center Configuration Manager • Client Application and Desktop Deployment Updates Management, Operating System Deployment • Multi-Platform Device Management iOS, Android, Mac, Linux, Unix • EndPoint Protection • Hardware and Software Inventory Reporting, Asset Intelligence • New in SP1: Windows 8 and Mobile Device Intune Integration for On-Demand MDM, Robust Alerting
    17. 17. What’s New In Platform Support? • Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 – Full client and site system role support • Windows Embedded – Support for Windows Embedded 8 Industry – Support for Unified Write Filters (UWF) • Mac OS X – Enrollment UI
    18. 18. Upgrade/Interoperability Considerations • Only supported upgrade path is from ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 • Must upgrade Windows ADK first • Improved site to site interoperability This hierarchy currently contains sites that have not been upgraded to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1. Objects of this type cannot be created until all primary sites have been upgraded.
    19. 19. SQL Server Flexibility In Setup • Specify file locations for database and transaction log
    20. 20. SQL Server Flexibility In Setup • Specify file locations for database and transaction log • Restore to a different SQL Server instance – Requires same SQL Server version
    21. 21. Reduced Need For Multiple Sites • Why might you need multiple primary sites? – More than 100K clients – Organizational politics – Reporting from the CAS – Clients reside in multiple untrusted forests
    22. 22. Reduced Need For Multiple Sites • Why might you need multiple primary sites? – More than 100K clients – Organizational politics – Reporting from the CAS – Clients reside in multiple untrusted forests • Solution: multiple network access accounts per site – Supports backward compatibility for SP1 clients – Troubleshooting assistance provided through DataTransferService.log
    23. 23. Easy Client Mobility • Scenario: I installed a new primary site in my hierarchy and would like to move some or all of the clients from an existing site to the new site (e.g. load- balancing, server replacement). • Solution: Client reassignment – Supports single or multi-select client reassignment – Enforces proper client/site versioning – Uses standard client policy channel (no client notification) • Note: This will not work for disaster recovery scenarios.
    24. 24. PowerShell Improvements • New: Remove-CMContentDistribution – To remove a content from distribution points • Modified: Add-CMDistributionPoint and Set- CMDistributionPoint – New parameters: • IsPullDP • SourceDPs • SourceDPRanks
