2 Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 Automating Inventory, Deployment and Configuration of Your Windows Infrastructure Dan Stolts, Microsoft Like most IT professionals, you are an administrator in a heterogeneous environment. You have a myriad of tools to inventory, deploy and configure your Unix/Linux machines but how do you do this for the rest of your machines? Come to this session to learn about the tools you must have in your toolbox to inventory, deploy, and remotely configure your windows desktops and servers. We will discuss the free tools as well as the top of the line fully automatable solutions available by Microsoft. Dan Stolts is a technology specialist with more than 24 years in the industry. He is proficient with many Microsoft products especially those in the server area and holds many certifications including MCT, MCITP, MCSE, TS, etc. Dan is currently specializing in Systems Management and Security and is also very passionate about virtualization technologies. Dan is and has been a very active member of the community. He is the current president of Boston User Groups. MIT E-51, Room 149Boston User Groups.

15 Application Compatibility Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor which will scan an individual computer and give information on the applications and the hardware that are running on that computer Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit is the must have tool for application compatibility.Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit Compatibility Problems? −Shim the applications −Remote Desktop Services −Application Virtualization – App to App … NOT OS Compatibility −XP-Mode – XP on Windows 7 −Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V) (even web applications) 15

16 User State – User Data User State Migration Tool Easy Transfer Wizard – One machine at a time… think grandma’s computer Easy Transfer Wizard Lite-Touch, High-Volume Deployment ( machines… [or everything except grandma’s machine] {MDT 2010 – User State Migration Tool} Lite-Touch, High-Volume Deployment −Migrate Windows XP to Windows 7 Using USMT (User State Migration Tool) [Upgrade XP or Vista] Step By Step or Vista] Step By StepMigrate Windows XP to Windows 7 Using USMT (User State Migration Tool) [Upgrade XP or Vista] Step By Step or Vista] Step By Step −Upgrading Windows XP to Windows 7 and Migrate Microsoft Office and Other Applications Using The User State Migration Tool (USMT)Upgrading Windows XP to Windows 7 and Migrate Microsoft Office and Other Applications Using The User State Migration Tool (USMT) System Center Configuration – Zero Touch Deployment of OS and Applications as well as post deployment management, updates and configuration changes – Integrates with the same tools … More on that later 16

17 User Migration An OS image can be the smallest part of a deployment payload when compared to user data USMT v4 - User State Migration Toolkit will completely eliminate any data move with a new feature called ‘Hardlinking’ ‘Hardlinking’ allows you to simply scan the system for what you want to migrate, make a record of its location on the disk, and leave it there At the end of your deployment, you reconnect to this location in the new user profile Scan and copy times from hours to minutes Remove network storage completely Preserve bandwidth Integrated with System Center for total automation and reporting An example: machines migration 2.Avg. 4Gb of user data per machine 3.Equates to 20,000Gb of data: 4.Transferred up the network to a share 5.Stored 6.Transferred back down An example: machines migration 2.Avg. 4Gb of user data per machine 3.Equates to 20,000Gb of data: 4.Transferred up the network to a share 5.Stored 6.Transferred back down
