  6. 6. Configuration Manager 2012<br />User Centric Client Management<br />EMPOWER<br />CONTROL<br />UNIFY<br />Reduces the complexity and improves visibility into systems compliance <br />Keeps assets available and helps keep the IT environment audit-ready <br />Simplifies and automates patch management<br />Simplifies and consolidates the IT infrastructure to provide a new operational cost model<br />Integrates security to create unified client management<br />New features around administrative control to reduce infrastructure <br />Enables IT to provide a flexible work environment <br /> Users can connect from anywhere, on any device they choose<br />Automatically detects network conditions and device configurations to determine the most appropriate services<br />
  7. 7. Embracing User-CentricThe End-User of the Future<br />
  8. 8. System and User-Centric <br />
  9. 9. Application Model Diagram<br />Keep your apps organized and managed<br />Administrator Properties<br />General information about the software application<br />End User Metadata<br />The “friendly” information for your users<br />App-V<br />Windows <br />Script <br />Windows <br />Installer (MSI)<br />Mobile (CAB)<br />Deployment Type<br />Workhorse for application<br />Is app installed?<br />Detection Method<br />Command line and options<br />Install Command<br />Can/cannot install app<br />Requirement Rules<br />Apps that must be present<br />Dependencies<br />Source files for the app<br />Content<br />
  10. 10. Embracing User Centric: End-User Promises<br />“A Fitting End-User Experience”<br />Web based software catalog<br />Easily find and request software<br />Choose software intelligently thanks to clear, consistent and concise information about applications and their impact<br />“The ability to define their relationships to their software”<br />User preferences control ConfigMgr behaviors (e.g. “my business hours”)<br />Manage impact from software installation and system restarts<br />
  11. 11. Application Lifecycle<br />Application Installation<br />(beta1)<br />Application Revision<br />(beta1)<br />Application Uninstall<br />(beta2)<br />New Application<br />Update Application<br />Remove Application<br />Application Retirement<br />(beta1)<br />Application Supersedence<br />(beta2)<br />Replace Application<br />Retire Application<br />
  12. 12. App-V in ConfigMgr 2012<br />
  13. 13. App-V in ConfigMgr 2012: What’s changing?<br />Integration requires App-V 4.6 client<br />New Application Model, User-centric features<br />Enable support for application dependencies<br />Improved update behaviors <br />Selective publishing of components<br />Dynamic Suite Support<br />Instant icon gratification for unlock events<br />Integration with Remote Desktop Services (TS)<br />Content Improvements<br />Streaming improvements<br />Reduce virtual app footprint when using Download and Execute<br />
  14. 14. New Administrator Experience<br />
  15. 15. Administrator Experience<br /><ul><li>Common look and feel across System Center products
  16. 16. Improve discoverability
  17. 17. Only show what is relevant
  18. 18. Complete scenarios within the console
  19. 19. Simplified navigation
  20. 20. Consolidated elements</li></li></ul><li>Role-Based Administration<br />Simplified administration of security permissions<br />Security Role<br />Group sets of permissions together that collectively define an administrative span of control<br />e.g. Read Program + Deploy Program + Read Collection + Advertise to Collection = Software Distribution Administrator <br />Supports assignment of Security Roles to Users, once in a hierarchy<br />Also supports instance level controls<br />ConfigMgr provides out-of-the-box Security Roles<br />Supports custom Security Roles<br />Removes clutter from the console<br />Supports “Show me what’s relevant to me” based on my Security Role and Scope<br />
  21. 21. Role-Based Administration Example<br />Peter assigns Application Deployment role to Meg<br />Meg is responsible for deploying software<br />Meg has a limited view<br />
  22. 22. Client Health<br />
  23. 23. Client Health<br />Server-side metrics covering policy requests, HW & SW Inventory, Heartbeat, Data Discovery Record (DDRs) and Status Messages<br />Customizable monitoring/remediation for:<br />Client prerequisites<br />ConfigMgr client reinstallation<br />Dependent Windows Services<br />WMI Repository, Namespace, Class, and Instance health evaluation and repair<br />In-console alerts when healthy/unhealthy ratio drops below configurable threshold<br />
  24. 24. Settings Management(aka DCM)<br />
  25. 25. Features and Improvements<br />Unified compliance-settings mgmt across servers, desktops laptops, and mobile devices<br />Simplify administrator experience<br />Role-based administration built in “Compliance Settings Management Role”<br />Browse gold system when creating configuration items<br />Simplified Baseline creation experience <br />Re-use of settings across CI boundary<br />Deployment of Baselines <br />User and Device targeting of Baselines <br />Define compliance SLAs for Baseline deployments and generate Alerts <br />True per user evaluation and remediation <br />Monitoring Baseline deployment compliance status<br />In Console monitoring<br />Updated reports to include remediation, conflict and error reporting<br />Automatic remediation (aka DCM “set”)<br />CI revisioning and change control<br />Migration of existing Configuration Manager 2007 Baselines and CIs<br />
  26. 26. Browse on gold system when creating CIs<br />Scenario: Simplify configuration item creation. <br />Design principal: Admin can create DCM setting and rule without typing by browsing gold system registry and file system, eliminating human errors. <br />Browse local / remote machine<br />Registry and File System only<br />
  27. 27. Mobile Device Management<br />
  28. 28. Mobile Device Support<br />New: SCCM 2012 will supportthefollowingdevices:<br />iPads<br />iPhones<br />Symbian<br />Android<br />Windows Phone 7<br />
  29. 29. Managing users means managing beyond desktops with “Single pane of glass” administration <br />Reaching beyond Windows platforms<br />User Centric – Device Management<br />“Light”<br />Provides basic management for all Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) connected devices<br />“Depth”<br />Broad feature set<br />Common administration model for mobile devices, desktops, and servers<br />
  30. 30. Cross Platform Management<br />
  31. 31. Who we are Targeting<br />Targeting enterprises where: <br />Windows clients and servers predominate<br />UNIX/Linux management is important due to security, regulatory requirements<br />Simplification and cost drivers demand a unified management solution<br />Targeting servers & server scenarios, not desktops & client scenarios<br />Most comprehensive solution for heterogeneous environments, but is not “best-of-breed” for a specific UNIX/Linux OS<br />“Just a Check-Box”<br />“Best-of-Breed” <br />ConfigMgr for UNIX/Linux <br />
  32. 32. Planned Features for UNIX/Linux Servers<br />
  33. 33. Planned OS Platforms Supported at (Release To Web) RTW<br />21 Platforms supported at RTW<br />AIX <br />Version 7.1 (Power)<br />Version 6.1 (Power)<br />Version 5.3 (Power)<br />HP-UX<br />Version 11iv3 (IA64 & PA-RISC)<br />Version 11iv2 (IA64 & PA-RISC)<br />Red Hat Enterprise Linux<br />Version 6 (x86 & x64)<br />Version 5 (x86 & x64)*<br />Version 4 (x86 & x64)<br />Solaris<br />Version 11(x86 and SPARC)<br />Version 10 (x86 & SPARC*) <br />Version 9 (SPARC)<br />SUSE Linux Enterprise Server<br />Version 11 (x86 & x64)<br />Version 10 (x86 & x64)<br />Version 9 (x86)<br />* CTP Support for 3 Platforms<br />
  34. 34. Software Updates<br />
  35. 35. Software Updates<br />State-based Update Groups<br />Deploy updates individually or in groups<br />Updates added to an update group automatically deploy to collections targeted with the group<br />Auto Deployment Rules<br />Use search criteria to identify class of updates to automatically deploy: category, products, language, date revised, article id, bulletin id, etc.<br />Schedule content download and deployment based on sync schedule or define a separate schedule per rule<br />
  36. 36. Operating System Deployment<br />
  37. 37. Operating System Deployment<br />Offline Servicing of Images<br />Support for Component Based Servicing compatible updates<br />Uses updates already approved <br />Boot Media Updates<br />Hierarchy wide boot media – no longer need one per site<br />Unattended boot media mode – no longer need to press “next”<br />Use pre-execution hooks to automatically select a task sequence – no longer see many optional task sequences<br />USMT 4.0 - UI integration and support for hard-link, offline and shadow copy features<br />
  38. 38. Remote Control<br />
  39. 39. Remote Control<br />IS BACK!<br />Send Ctrl-Alt-Del to host device to regain previous feature parity<br />
  40. 40. Infrastructure Changes<br />
  41. 41. Infrastructure Promises<br />Modernizing Architecture<br />Minimizing infrastructure for remote offices<br />Consolidating infrastructure for primary sites<br />Scalability and Data Latency Improvements<br />Central Administration Site is just for administration and reporting – Other work distributed to the primaries as much as possible<br />File processing occurs once at the Primary Site and uses replication to reach other sites (no more reprocessing at each site in the hierarchy)<br />System-generated data (HW Inventory and Status) can be configured to flow to the Central Administration Site directly<br />Be Trustworthy<br />Interactions with SQL DBA are consistent with Configuration Manager 2007<br />Configuration Manager admin can monitoring and troubleshoot new replication approach independently<br />
  42. 42. Simplify Your Hierarchy<br />Central Site<br />Primary<br />Primary Site<br />Primary<br />Primary Site<br />Primary Site<br />Primary Site<br />Distribution Point<br />Distribution Point<br />Distribution Point<br />Distribution Point<br />Secondary Site<br />Secondary Site<br />Secondary Site<br />
