  1. Deploying Windows 7 using SCCM 2012 RC1 What do User-Centric deployments mean for OSD NE Ohio System Center User Group February 2012 Jason Condo jcondo@bennettadelson.com

  2. Agenda • General overview of 2012 console • Creating a OS deployment task sequence • Distributing content • Deploying • Creating boot media • Adding an unknown device to ConfigMgr for deployment • Kicking off the deployment

  3. Agenda – Cont. • While deployment runs… • What is user-centric deployments • Why does is matter to me • Software Center • Applications with “rules” • Sample App to JoeUser • Primary Desktop – full install • Shared Desktop – App-V download or stream • Term Server – App–V stream • Completed deployment

  4. 2012 Console overview • Similarities from 2007 to 2012 • Collections • Packages • OS deployment • DCM • Reporting • Differences • All of the above  • Console is now function based instead of console tree • New • Applications • Software Center • Architecture (hierarchy, roles)

  5. OSD in 2012 • Good news, it’s pretty much the same • Bad news, not everything is obvious and in central place • MDT integration – requires MDT 2012 (will be released together) • Basically the same • some new logic for partitioning drives • Application groups have 3 digits and must be converted to 2 digits for ConfigMgr (PACKAGES001 now PACKAGES01) • Can deploy whole drive WIMs with multiple partitions

  6. Creating a base image • Minimum pre-reqs you need • Operating System installation files • ConfigMgr Client installation • Network share for saving image to • Credentials to write to share (service account) • Additional • Software Updates • Applications and/or Packages

  7. Importing an Image • Demonstration • Previously captured image from ConfigMgr TS • Adding image • Reviewing details in console

  8. Creating a deployment task sequence • Demonstration • Creation • Distribution • Deployment

  9. Kicking off a deployment • Demonstration • Boot media • Adding device resource • Assigning primary user • Initiating the deployment

  10. User-Centric Paradigm Shift • More and more the user is being “trained” by the connected world we live in to want to leverage all means possible to do what they need to do. • This causes stress on sys admins and security policies who used heavy controls to standardize • Survey – how many are being forced to adopt technology your staff, systems, or policies are not ready for?

  11. How does this apply to you for OSD • How do you handle reinstall of user apps? • Manual • Direct membership (goes to every PC) • Deploy to user groups (goes to every PC) • What kind of deployment type do you do more? • REPLACE - prebuild on bench • NEW - prebuild on bench • REFRESH – in-place • Do you do REPLACE instead of REFRESH? • Refresh requires application and user mgmt. • High level of trust in the solution

  12. Infrastructure Optimization Skill Automation, Standardization Administration Administration Speed and Agility

  13. To leverage User-Centric • Understand the User Experience Equation • Users • “Access Layers” (Devices) • Applications • State • Data • Assigning primary devices to users • Similar to managing the hardware but enable dynamic changes • Requires trust (with controls)

  14. User Experience Equation In some instances these are combined

  15. Are devices the physical end-point, or should we look deeper? What are devices? Device concept blurs

  16. Applications • Packages • Applications • Deployment types • Dynamics and rules

  17. State • Application Settings • System Settings • Things that apply to an object to make it unique • Don’t confuse it with data • Data when accessed by the Application + State (configuration of application) should become useful to the user.

  18. Data • Information that becomes useful when accessed by an application. • Application, state, and access layer provide presentation of data to the user. • Word document – following 3 scenarios the data doesn’t change, just the way it is accessed and used. • SharePoint 2010 • Wordviewer 2010 • Microsoft Word 2010

  19. Software Center in ConfigMgr 2012 • Device driven installs in the console • User applications in the web app • Admin approvals • Requests for software • How does this tie into rumored Windows Store for Windows 8?

  20. Sample Application Deployment • JoeUser Computer • Temp Workstation • Newly Deployed workstation

  21. Wrap up • We covered some basics around OSD in ConfigMgr 2012 • User Experience Equation • Applications vs. packages • Demonstrated New system deployment

  22. Questions
