    1. 1. Delivering People-centric IT with Configuration Manager 2012 R2 Ronny de Jong @ronnydejong
    2. 2. Welkom Session Objectives & Takeaways People-centric IT Demo’s Q&A Agenda
    3. 3. Review infrastructure changes in Configuration Manager R2 Discuss new and updated features in Configuration Manager R2 Highlight changes to support Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 Session Objectives and Takeaways
    4. 4. Today’s Challenges Deploying and managing applications across platforms is difficult. Apps Data Users need to be productive while maintaining compliance and reducing risk. Users expect to be able to work in any location and have access to all their work resources. Users The explosion of devices is eroding the standards-based approach to corporate IT. Devices
    5. 5. People-centric IT AppsUsers Empower users Allow users to work on the devices of their choice and provide consistent access to corporate resources. Unify your environment Deliver a unified application and device management on- premises and in the cloud. Protect your data Help protect corporate information and manage risk.Management. Access. Protection. DataDevices

    7. 7. Increased SQL Server flexibility in Setup Easy client mobility Reduced Need For Multiple Sites Improved visibility into a better optimized content system Upgrade/interoperability considerations 64-bit native PowerShell module What’s New In Infrastructure?
    8. 8. Specify file locations for database and transaction log SQL Server flexibility In Setup
    9. 9. Specify file locations for database and transaction log Restore to a different SQL Server instance Requires same SQL Server version SQL Server flexibility In Setup
    10. 10. 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 User standard client policy channel (no client notification) Note: This will not work for disaster recovery scenarios. Easy client mobility
    11. 11. 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 dts.log Reduced Need For Multiple Sites
    12. 12. Easy client mobility Demo
    13. 13. In-console monitoring improvements Pull DP on par with standard DP Clearer and more detailed messages Cancel/retry distribution Pull DP improvements Source DP ordering and randomization Improved scalability (no more polling) Migration of branch DP’s to pull DP’s General content improvements Content download optimizations (client side) for superseded applications Content distribution optimizations (priority, send requests in SQL, versioning auto-cancel Improved visibility into a better optimized content system

    15. 15. Only supported upgrade path is from ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 Must upgrade Windows ADK first Improved site to site interoperability Upgrade/Interoperability Considerations
    16. 16. Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 support Virtual Hard Drive (VHD) management Native integration of some MDT actions What’s New In OSD?
    17. 17. Requires new version of Windows ADK Added multi-version boot images support Deploys just like Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 Support for OSD-specific site system roles State Migration Point on Windows Server 2012 R2 Distribution Point with PXE on Windows Server 2012 R2 Distribution Point without PXE on Windows 8.1 OSD for Windows Server 2012 R2 & Windows 8.1
    18. 18. Expanding virtualization scenarios Example: workstation image validation, datacenter integration Create VHD Requires Hyper-V on ConfigMgr console computer User standard task sequence (new template available) Modify VHD Uses offline servicing Upload to Virtual Machine Manager Virtual Hard Drive (VHD) Management
