4 System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Release Candidate Availability ConfigMgr RC available for trial − cloud/archive/2011/10/27/system-center-2012-configuration- manager-release-candidate-is-here.aspx cloud/archive/2011/10/27/system-center-2012-configuration- manager-release-candidate-is-here.aspx RC for additional tools −Download Package Conversion Manager RCDownload Package Conversion Manager RC −Download the Configuration Manager P2V Migration ToolkitDownload the Configuration Manager P2V Migration Toolkit

5 ConfigMgr RC Changes Overview Key Features −Endpoint Protection Integration −Application ‘Deployment Simulation’ (Pre-Flight) −Improved Discovery DCRs, Bug Fixes, More… 5

6 System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection Integration (formerly known as Forefront Endpoint Protection 2012) Fully integrated setup and management Key Features −Expedited malware events: client to admin within 5 minutes −Built-in security admin role −Network-friendly definition deployments −Improved scalability and reliability −Simpler to setup and operate − subscriptions for alerts 6

7 System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection Overview Demo

8 Application Simulated Deployment (“Preflight”) Goal: Confidence in moving to state based dynamic applications −Did I do detection method right? −Did I get rules/relationships right? −What will my deployment type mix be? What it does: Runs application as required in “rules only” mode −No content download, no execution of deployment type −Results – what would the system have done? −Processes detection method, requirement rules, dependencies and supersedence −Does NOT simulate the install!

9 Feature Areas A quick overview

10 Hierarchy FQDN throughout the product All ConfigMgr Replication through Data Replication Service (DRS) (No more SQL transactional replication) Replication Link Analyzer (in RC) Cross forest support - untrusted forests for site system roles (not site servers) Secondary site content routing (one layer) SQL Configuration Options: Ports, Instances MP replica support 10

11 Performance Scalability and performance improvements throughout the product: −General console operation −Replication −State and Status messages (alerting) −Discovery Data Processing −Application Catalog 11

12 UI and Admin Console Ability search via dates (e.g. last x days) Added security scopes into the listview with filter/sort/search Only one admin console installer - 32 bit Improved multi-lingual support, including server setup Reporting −Reports are grouped by folders in the UI −Report Folder “Show-Me” - Folders are now associated with security role permissions 12

13 Applications Application Catalog: −Ability to change application catalog color scheme −Updated Application Catalog appearance −Catalog tables update on a schedule, (3 minutes – 24 hours). "Run Now" action to force immediately Software Center −Ability to filter by type of deployment (applications, operating systems, updates) −Ability to show or hide optional deployments 13

18 Monitoring and Discovery Monitoring −Alerts now have subscriptions with −Added an "Endpoint Protection Status" node Discovery −Add Forest Discovery −Remove System Group Discovery −Rename Security Group Discovery to Group Discovery −Change the responsibility of −Group discovery: Discover groups and membership of these groups −System Discovery: Discover basic information of computers and OU of these computers −User Discovery: It is responsible for Discover basic information of users and OU of these users 18

19 Delta Discovery Group discovery Discover security groups and distribution groups. Discover membership of groups, including both user and computers Support specifying individual groups as the discovery scope. (Recommended) Detect any changes of group membership 19

20 Stale Computer Filtering Based on two Active Directory attributes: −Lastlogontimestamp: Record the last logon timestamp of the computer. It requires Domain function level >= Windows Server 2003 −Pwdlastset: Record the last time when the computer changes its password. By default Active Directory policy enforces each computer changing password every 30 days. 20

21 Client Settings and DCM Compliance Settings Management (DCM): −Baseline remediation can now be limited to maintenance windows (default) −Baseline deployments can now generate Operations Manager alerts −Ability to create dynamic collections from baseline compliance (RC) Client Settings −Custom Client Settings can now be exported and imported (Not just for default) 21

22 Client Health Client health: −Rule checks expanded from 12 to 21 including: −WMI service WMI Repository Integrity −BITS serviceConfigMgr client, prerequisites install −SMS Agent Host serviceConfigMgr Remote Control service −Antimalware service (EP)Network Inspection (EP) −Windows Update Agent −Client health state is now live data (versus summarized) −Can disable automatic remediation of client health via Registry (e.g. Mission critical systems such as servers) 22

23 Other Remote Control: −Ability to have agent create required Windows firewall exemptions −Remote Control Viewer shortcut in the ConfigMgr program group −Agent is disabled by default Platform Support: −Added platform support for −Windows Embedded 7 SP1 −POSReady 7 −Windows 7 Thin PC −Windows Embedded Compact 7 23

24 Other Embedded Device Management −Ability to use task sequences to manage write filter enabled systems Tools: −RBA modeling tool: −Live modeling of security roles and assignments −Authoring and modeling of custom security roles −Replication Link Analyzer (post RC) 24

25 Call to Action Download and evaluate ConfigMgr RC in test environmentConfigMgr RC Refer to the latest technical documentation: us/library/gg aspx us/library/gg aspx Continue to participate in the Community activities and share your feedback and best practices Thanks!
