1 What’s coming in Sccm 2007R2 aka Sccm 2007R2: 10 reasons to upgrade Kim Oppalfens SCUG.be

2 SCUG.be Founded in 2008 Microsoft System Center product family Related Knowledge (posts, forums, downloads) Membership is free Community Events 4x/Year More Info? Alexandre verkinderen, Yves Jansens, Kenny Buntinckx

3 Agenda Who am I? Why have a R2 release so soon after Sccm 2007? Reason1: Forefront Client Security integration Reason 2: client health reporting Reason 3: SQL Reporting Services-based reports

4 Reason 4-6: operating system deployment enhancements Reason 7-10: Microsoft Application Virtualizaion integration Agenda (Continued)

5 DCM Configuration pack Baseline that checks FCS Agent installed Recent scan, signatures up-to-date? FCS services running? What’s missing? Support for distributing the antivirus signature files as software updates. Signature files distributed using software distribution feature, could be dynamic based on DCM Forefront Client Security integration

6 Built upon the scenarios in the SMS 2003 Client Health Tool External service which queries site systems and ConfigMgr clients for client status on agent activity and overall health Reports on key indicators of client activity to help administrators monitor and maintain the health of their ConfigMgr clients client health reporting

7 Monitors ddr, hw/sw inv, status messages, policy requests, ping (icmp, wmi connect, services running) Health metrics stored in Sccm 2007 R2 database Runs on a 32-bit host system external to configmgr site system roles Client health reporting (continued)

8 New server role called the “Reporting Services Point” Ability to convert/copy classic SMS reports to Report Definition Language format and publish them to a Reporting Services Point (report server) New node under “Computer Management -> Reporting” for accessing the SRS ConfigMgr reports Ability to manage, browse and run SRS ConfigMgr reports from the ConfigMgr Console SQL Reporting Services-based reports

9 Integrated virtual application server infrastructure Streamed virtual application delivery from Sccm distribution point Roaming support for virtual application delivery Dynamic application delivery Microsoft Application Virtualization integration

10 Requires Microsoft application virtualization 4.5 Requires Microsoft application virtualization 4.5 Customer needs to be licensed for MDOP Customer needs to be licensed for MDOP Support stand-alone mode, which allows for Sccm 2007 R2 integration Support stand-alone mode, which allows for Sccm 2007 R2 integration Uses Sftmime command-line to deliver virtual applications Uses Sftmime command-line to deliver virtual applications Microsoft Application Virtualization integration Integrated virtual application server infrastructure

11 Streaming component installed on Sccm distribution point Virtual Applications delivery can be pre- provisioned or streamed Roaming support for virtual applications Microsoft Application Virtualization integration Streamed virtual application delivery from Sccm distribution point

12 Thinks Sms 2.0 “Remove when advertisement no longer applies” Not the same problem as Sms 2.0 solution because you have virtual applications User & computer targetting supported Application delivery / removal and upgrades supported Microsoft Application Virtualization integration Dynamic application delivery

13 Multicast support Unknown computer support Tasksequence credentials Operating System deployment enhancements

14 Multicast of OS images to Windows PE Requires DP running Windows Server 2008 with WDS ConfigMgr multicast builds on WDS multicast Like WDS, 2 modes: ScheduleCast and AutoCast ScheduleCast: Maximum wait time or minimum client amount exceeded AutoCast: CarrouselCast Operating System deployment enhancements Multicast Support

15 Removes the need to pre-create a computer record via Import Computer Info Works with boot media and PXE boot Implemented with two new resources that can be put into collections and targeted with task sequences x86 Unknown Computer x64 Unknown Computer Warning: You can unexpectedly re-image a computer! So use with care Operating System deployment enhancements Unknown computer support

16 Can specify credentials on Run Command Line task sequence action Provides “Run As” capability For applications such as SQL Server that should be installed under a specific account Unfortunately doesn’t let you run step as logged on user Operating System deployment enhancements Tasksequence credentials

17 (Ms Virtual app & confimgr 2007R2 beta) Resources
