4 Free Deployment eBook http://bit.ly/Win7DeployEBook
Deploying Windows 7 – Essential Guidance from the Windows 7 Resource Kit and TechNet Magazine. It is 412 pages of very detailed content for those that really want to learn as much as they can about all aspects of Deployment.

5 Infrastructure and Networking
Significant Cost Savings Can be Achieved by Using a Management Tool, and by Deploying into a Managed Environment Benefits Can be Achieved by Utilizing Capabilities such as : System Center Active Directory Group Policy Branch Cache Direct Access

6 The Focus Areas of a Deployment
Hardware Compatibility Application Management Infrastructure and Networking Security and Data Protection Imaging Migration and Installation Management Virtualization

8 Introduction to Client Management with System Center

9 Overview: System Center Configuration Manager
Automated solution for assessing, migrating and deploying windows server and client operating systems Broad support for advanced delivery: Operating systems Applications Software and hardware updates Support for both physical and virtual environments Increased scenario support: Corporate Network Branch locations Mobile Workforce Home workers (Internet based) Desired Configuration Management System Center Configuration Manager

11 Customized / Specialized Operating System Deployment
System Center Configuration Mgr has the flexibility to customize the OS deployment process Rather than a generic “template”, actually get a customized guest session WITH apps installed Highly automated solution for assessing, migrating and deploying Windows server, Apps, and Data Dynamic deployment of drivers at runtime Utilize Windows PnP detection for bare metal deployments

12 Configuration Manager 2007 Feature Summary: R2
Application Virtualization Management Seamless integration to Microsoft Application Virtualization OSD Enhancements Additions of Multicast and Unknown Computer Support Client Status Reporting Client summary rollup of key performance indicators SQL Reporting Services Integration Migration of ConfigMgr reports to robust reporting platform Forefront Client security integration Configuration Pack knowledge of the Forefront client status

13 Microsoft Confiential: Preliminary Information: NDA Only
Windows 7 Deployment Imaging Delivery Migration Deployment Image Servicing and Management Add/Remove Drivers and Packages WIM and VHD Image Management Windows Deployment Services Multiple Stream Transfer Dynamic Driver Provisioning VHD and WIM Support User State Migration Tool Hardlink Migration Offline File Gather Improved User File Detection Integrated Solutions Microsoft Assessment and Planning Application Compatibility Toolkit Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

14 Planning for OS Deployment
Setup Firewall Rules (Group Policy) see notes Inventory…MAP: Download the free Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (“Solution Accelerator”) Or skip this step and start off with SCCM 

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 The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit is the must have tool for application compatibility. 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)

16 User State – User Data User State Migration Tool
Easy Transfer Wizard – One machine at a time… think grandma’s computer  Lite-Touch, High-Volume Deployment ( machines… [or everything except grandma’s machine] {MDT 2010 – User State Migration Tool} Migrate 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) 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

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: 5000 machines migration Avg. 4Gb of user data per machine Equates to 20,000Gb of data: Transferred up the network to a share Stored Transferred back down

18 MDT 2010 What’s New New! Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) version 2.0 User State Migration Toolkit (USMT) version 4.0 Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool Upgrading from Previous Versions of MDT and Microsoft Business Desktop Deployment (BDD) System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 Boot Configuration Data (BCD) Management Tool Windows 7 Default Disk Partition Configuration Automation of Management Tasks Using Windows Powershell™ Cmdlets

26 Grouping Computers for Deployment
Grouping Method Description Properties Geographically Group configuration settings based on resources located within a geographic region (such as a shared folder on a computer within a geographic region). DefaultGateway Target Computer Hardware Attributes Group configuration settings based on hardware attributes (such as the make of the target computer or processor architecture of the target computer). Architecture CapableArchitecture Make Model HALName Target Computer Software Attributes Group configuration settings based on hardware attributes (such as the operating system version of the target computer). OSVersion Default Attributes Apply configuration settings to all target computers when the properties are not located in other sections. Default 26

27 Targeting Individual Computers
Computers target specific computers Uses Asset Tag, UUID, Serial Number, or MAC Address Associate Properties Settings, Applications, Packages, Administrator-level Accounts, and Roles Identification Method Description Properties Target computer hardware attributes Identify the target computer by using the hardware configuration. MACAddress Target computer software attributes Identify the target computer by using the software or firmware configuration. Product (with Make and Model) Target computer user-defined attributes Identify the target computer by using attributes that are assigned to the computer but are not a part of the hardware or software configuration. AssetTag SerialNumber 27
