Screencast (Part 1 of 4): Master Your Environment with System Center Configuration Manager 2007
Part 1 of 4: The Administrator Console:
This four-part series introduces you to System Center Configuration Manager 2007.
As more clients and servers are added to your environment, the task of managing these resources becomes much more complex. Knowing the range of available hardware and software, while keeping the machines current with the latest applications and patch updates can become onerous. But don’t despair – there’s a solution to this problem. System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM 2007) is the ideal way to comprehensively assess, deploy, and update your servers, clients, and devices – across physical, virtual, distributed, and mobile environments. Not only can you take control of your infrastructure, but you can also leverage SCCM 2007’s integration with Network Access Protection (NAP) to quickly and easily remediate machines throughout the organization that don’t meet the network policy requirements. You’ll see how simple this remediation process can be, regardless of whether machines are communicating with your network through VPN, hardwired, or wireless connections.
In this screencast we will review the basics of SCCM 2007. We’ll walk through the administrator console and see how we configure the ConfigMgr environment.
