Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 with R2

Infrastructure Planning and Design Series

what is ipd
What Is IPD?

Planning and design guidance that aims to clarify and streamline the planning and design process for Microsoft ® infrastructure technologies

IPD:

  • Defines decision flow
  • Describes decisions to be made
  • Relates decisions and options for the business
  • Frames additional questions for business understanding
purpose and agenda
Purpose and Agenda
  • Purpose
    • To assist in the decision process to plan a successful Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager SP1 with R2 implementation
  • Agenda
    • Define the project scope
    • Determine which roles will be deployed
    • Determine the number of sites required
    • Design the sites
    • Determine the number of hierarchies required
    • Design each hierarchy

What Is Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 with R2?

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) 2007 SP1 with R2 is a configuration management solution that:

  • Contributes to a more effective IT department by enabling secure and scalable operating system and application deployment and desired configuration management.
  • Provides comprehensive asset management of servers, desktops, and mobile devices.
applicable scenarios
Applicable Scenarios

The guide addresses the needs of:

  • Organizations with no configuration management solution that want to use ConfigMgr.
  • Organizations that presently use another configuration management solution and are planning to move to ConfigMgr.
  • Organizations with multi-forest environments where ConfigMgr will be employed to manage systems that span Active Directory forest boundaries.
  • Organizations that have distributed environments with systems separated by wide area network (WAN) links.
  • Organizations with mobile devices, such as smartphones, that operate beyond firewalls but must be managed centrally.
step 1 define project scope
Step 1. Define Project Scope

Answer the following questions to align goals with business motivation:

  • Will project encompass entire enterprise?
  • Which features will project address?
  • What is the client population to be managed?
  • What are the organization’s service expectations?
step 2 determine which roles will be deployed
Step 2. Determine Which Roles Will Be Deployed

Establishing which site roles are required and where they are located determines site design and sizing, network sizing, and if the ConfigMgr client will be deployed.

step 3 determine the number of sites required
Step 3. Determine the Number of Sites Required

Start with one site, and then add more as required by the following:

  • Scale
  • Privacy concerns
  • Internet-connected clients
  • Active Directory forests
  • Network location
  • International languages
  • Organization
step 4 design the sites
Step 4. Design the Sites
  • Task 1: Plan the roles that are always required
  • Task 2: Plan the roles that are optional
    • Task 3: Plan the roles that are feature-specific
    • Task 4: Determine where to place hierarchy roles
    • Task 5: Determine where to place primary and secondary sites and branch distribution points
    • Task 6: Determine if native mode is required – the two options are native mode and mixed mode
step 4 task 6 option 1 native mode
Step 4, Task 6. Option 1: Native Mode
  • Benefits:
    • Higher level of security by integrating with a public key infrastructure (PKI) to help protect client-to-server communication.
    • Enables the management of clients that are connected to the Internet, such as laptops used by mobile workers, computers used from an employee’s home, and smartphones.
  • Challenges:
    • PKI infrastructure is required.
    • Estimated native mode site operations are 10-15 percent slower in overall performance compared to sites configured to operate in mixed mode due to added load of encryption and signing.
    • Cannot interoperate with SMS 2003.
    • All parent locations up to and including the central site must be in native mode.
step 4 task 6 option 2 mixed mode
Step 4. Task 6. Option 2: Mixed Mode
  • Benefit:
    • Enables integration with SMS 2003.
  • Challenge:
    • Additional design may be required to ensure the security of connections beyond the organization’s firewalls.
step 4 design the sites continued
Step 4. Design the Sites - continued
    • Task 7: Assign Clients to Sites
    • Task 8: Design boundaries of protected distribution point systems
    • Task 9: Design the site systems
  • Task 10: Determine the Fault-Tolerance Approach
step 5 determine number of hierarchies required
Step 5. Determine Number of Hierarchies Required

Start with one hierarchy and add more, if required.

Some possible scenarios requiring additional hierarchy are:

  • Size
  • Central site is mixed mode and native mode is required
  • Isolated networks
  • Politics
  • Regulatory requirements
step 6 design each hierarchy
Step 6. Design Each Hierarchy
  • Task 1: Determine where to place central site
  • Task 2: Plan the site hierarchy
summary and conclusion
Summary and Conclusion

The guide summarized the critical design decisions, activities, and tasks required to enable a successful design of ConfigMgr.

It focused on decisions involving:

  • Which ConfigMgr roles will be required
  • The server roles, role placement, databases, and connectivity of the ConfigMgr infrastructure
  • The number of ConfigMgr hierarchies required, and how many sites are required within each hierarchy
