  • 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. 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. SQL Server Flexibility In Setup • Specify file locations for database and transaction log
  • 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. 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. 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. 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. PowerShell Improvements • New: Remove-CMContentDistribution – To remove a content from distribution points • Modified: Add-CMDistributionPoint and Set- CMDistributionPoint – New parameters: • IsPullDP • SourceDPs • SourceDPRanks
