XP SP2 Need to provision an admin push account Multiple binaries used for client deployment Client install is not bandwidth-aware No visibility into the progress of client install 6 Client Deployment Methods Those that are the same as Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003: Client push installation

Automated client push or admin controlled Can now use the site server computer account as the Client Push Installation account Logon installation for high-rights users No support for low rights installation Software distribution Upgrades from SMS 2003 Upgrades to Configuration Manager SP1 Manual installation 7

Client Deployment Methods (2) Those that are new deployment methods in Configuration Manager 2007 Software update point (SUP) client deployment Client is installed through Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) Group policy installation Use software installation feature to deploy Ccmsetup.msi You can use whatever methods that meet your requirements

8 Supported Client Numbers Site Role Hierarchy (Central site) Primary site System Health Validator Management point Distribution point (non-OSD) Distribution point (OSD) State migration point Software update point (WSUS)

Fallback status point Branch distribution point 9 Maximum # of Client Systems 200,000 100,000 200,000 25,000 4,000 Limited by Network & Disk I/O Limited by Network & Disk I/O

25,000 100,000 Limited by OS License, Network & Disk I/O Components Used in Client Deployment Ccmsetup.exe Install, uninstall, upgrade Bandwidth aware Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) BITS 2.0 for Windows 2000 clients BITS 2.5 for most other Windows clients

BITS 3.0 already installed on Windows Vista 10 Components Used in Client Deployment (2) Windows Installer 3.1 v2 KB893803 update to all except Windows Server 2003 SP1 and later Windows Update Agent For Windows Server Update Services 3.0 Installed if same or newer version not already

installed Core XML Services (MS XMS 6 SP1) MSXML6.msi 11 Components Used in Client Deployment (3) MSRDC (Remote Differential Compression) Required for branch distribution points to support binary differential replication

Wimgapi.msi Imaging API for custom tools for image management Client.msi Windows Installer package of the Configuration Manager 2007 client 12 Client Assignment Configuration Manager clients can only be assigned to Configuration Manager sites

They cannot be assigned to SMS 2003 sites In order to validate site assignment, they must verify the intended sites version Required for automatic or manual assignment This occurs from one of two methods Active Directory if the schema is extended for Configuration Manager Configuration Manager server locator point 13 Client Registration Configuration Manager clients must be

registered as a client to be able to send data to it, or retrieve data from it Automatic process after assignment Client finds the default management and issues a registration request to the site This provides the client identity (self-signed certificate) to the site for validation 14 Client Approval Method Configuration Manager clients must be

approved to use the Network Access account Cant download the policy that contains the account until the client is approved Approval has three options in mixed mode No automatic approval (manual) Automatic approval for domain joined clients Automatic approval for all clients 15 Configuring the client approval method

17 Site System Roles Used in Client Deployment Site server When deploying via client push Management point Used to download client files for deployment Retrieve policies after deployment Server locator point

Used to validate assignment to the site in a nonextended Active Directory environment 18 Site System Roles Used in Client Deployment (2) Distribution point (including branch DP) Used for a software distribution client upgrade Can be used for operating system deployment Software update point Used when deploying the client through Windows Server Update Services

Fallback status point (FSP) Client sends state messages for the deployment to the FSP if configured to do so 19 Site System Roles Used in Client Deployment (3) PXE service point Can be used in operating system deployment in bare metal system scenarios

State migration point Can be used in operating system deployment in machine replacement scenarios 20 Site Systems used in Client Deployment SQL SQL Server Server SQL

22 Session Agenda Overview of Configuration Manager client deployment Site system roles used in client deployment Client push deployment Software update client deployment Group Policy client deployment Client upgrades 23

Client Push Installation Essentially the same as SMS 2003 Automated push or Client Push Installation Wizard The default is now SMSSITECODE=local site code The SMS 2003 default was AUTO The site server computer account can be used as the Client Push Installation account Is tried automatically if all other accounts fail 24

Client Push Installation (2) No longer uses Remote Registry to the target system Now use Remote WMI If Active Directory is extended for Configuration Manager, the Client Push Installation parameters are published Then used often when Ccmsetup.exe is run with no command line parameters Not used for push installs as they use the Client Push Installation method parameters

25 Installing a client using the Client Push Installation Wizard demo 26 Session Agenda Overview of Configuration Manager client deployment

Site system roles used in client deployment Client push deployment Software update client deployment Group Policy client deployment Client upgrades 27 Software Update Point Client Installation Client installed as a WSUS mandatory update to non-client systems No firewall issues if Windows Update Agent works

No issues with low rights users Client must point to the SUP via Group Policy Client will then install automatically getting parameters from Active Directory 28 Software Update Point Client Installation Configuration Site admin enables the Software Update Point Client Installation method Requires a software update point site system

Publishes the current Configuration Manager client to WSUS as a mandatory application update Only required to publish at the central site All child sites sync content from the parent site 29 Installing a client using a software update point demo 30

True Active Directory client deployment integration Use software installation to deploy the Configuration Manager client CCMSetup.MSI for software installation package Auto publish client deployment settings to AD ADM templates for settings No more auto removal of clients 32

Installing a client through Group Policy demo 33 Group Policy Client Assignment Allows assignment of resources based on business model instead of network Not constrained to Boundaries ADM template for OU assignment configuration

34 Assigning a client to a site using Group Policy client assignment demo 35 Session Agenda Overview of Configuration Manager client

deployment Site system roles used in client deployment Client push deployment Software update client deployment Group Policy client deployment Client upgrades 36 Client Upgrades The most common client upgrade methods are: Software distribution Can control targets and timing with advertisements

Client push installation Use the Client Push Installation Wizard Can also use: Manual installation Automated push (must clear the Install flag) 37 Service Pack 1 Client Upgrades There is a new client for Configuration Manager 2007 SP1

Configuration Manager RTM clients can exist in a SP1 site Configuration Manager SP1 clients not supported in an RTM site There is no new client with Configuration Manager R2 The client remains at Configuration Manager SP1 code base 38 Upgrading clients using software distribution

demo 39 Client Deployment Tips Consider pre-deploying required client files For example, BITS may require a reboot Ensure that the Active Directory schema has been extended If not, you need a server locator point for client assignment

Recommended to have a fallback status point available Provides access to great client deployment status reports 40 Client Deployment Tips (2) Deploy clients in a phased manner Validate success throughout deployment No more than a few thousand a day After initial deployment, deploy a test application

to upgraded clients Validates client can access the management point and distribution point For brand new installs, may want to consider configuring Heartbeat Discovery and inventory cycles for daily Validates client functionality and performance 41 Session Summary There are many unique methods to deploy clients in Configuration Manager 2007

For the most part, the same methods as SMS 2003 supported are available to Configuration Manager 2007 No longer manual Client.msi deployment New methods for Configuration Manager Software update point client installation Group Policy client deployment 42 Q&A Meet me in the
