    • System Center Configuration Manager 2012What’s New and what it Means Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • AGENDA• Architecture Changes• Security Changes• Reporting• User-centric Management• Cross-Platform Support• Software Distribution• Configuration Settings Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • ARCHITECTURE CHANGES• Flatter, unified Architecture – No more “mixed mode” (removed) – Clients are no longer “tied” to a site – Schema must be extended, but schema extensions are unchanged from 2007• More Scalable – SCCM 2007 R3 scales up to 300,000 devices – SCCM 2012 scales up to 500,000 (still 100k per Primary)• Central Administration Site (CAS) – Does not process client data – Does not accept client assignments – Does not support all site system roles – Participates in database replication Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • ARCHITECTURE CHANGES – PRIMARY SITE• Primary Sites manage clients in well-connected networks – Additional primary sites allow the hierarchy to support more clients. – Cannot be tiered below other primary sites – No longer used as a boundary for client agent settings or security – No longer supports NLB solutions, all fault tolerance is realized by introducing additional Primary Site Servers to the Site (and using a CAS to manage) – Participates in database replication Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • ARCHITECTURE CHANGES – SECONDARY SITE• Secondary Sites control content distribution for clients in remote locations across links that have limited network bandwidth – SQL Server is required and SQL Server Express will be installed during site installation if required – A proxy management point and distribution point are automatically deployed during the site installation to give clients a local check-in – Secondary sites can be tiered to support content distribution to remote locations – Participates in database replication. Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • SECURITY - RBAC• No more Classes and Instances – Replaced with Security Roles, Security Scopes & Collections that can span sites• Benefits: – Sites are no longer administrative boundaries. – You create administrative users for the hierarchy and assign security to them one time only – You create content for the hierarchy and assign security to that content one time only – All security assignments are replicated and available throughout the hierarchy. – There are built-in security roles to assign the typical administration tasks and you can create your own custom security roles. – Administrative users see only the objects that they have permissions to manage. – You can audit administrative security actions. Los Angeles: 310-426-0600 I Orange County: 949-732-1122 I www.prosum.com
    • ADMINISTRATIVE SEGMENTATION• Security Roles – What types of objects can I see and what can I do to them? – Example: the “Software Update Manager” role gives rights to read and deploy collections and Software Updates.• Security Scopes – Which instances can I see and interact with?• Collections – Which resources can I interact with?
