使用適用於延伸互通性的 Configuration Manager 用戶端軟體來搭配未來的「最新分支」站台版本使用Use the Configuration Manager client software for extended interoperability with future versions of a Current Branch site

適用於:Configuration Manager (最新分支)Applies to: Configuration Manager (current branch)  

商務需求可能不允許您定期更新某些裝置上的 Configuration Manager 用戶端。Business requirements might not allow you to regularly update the Configuration Manager client on some devices. 例如,您需要遵循變更管理原則,或裝置為關鍵任務所需。For example, you need to follow change management policies, or the device is mission-critical. 為配合這些需求,您可以安裝長期使用的新用戶端,稱為延伸互通性用戶端 (EIC)。Accommodate these needs by installing a new client for long-term use, called the extended interoperability client (EIC). 請將 EIC 只用於無法頻繁更新的特定裝置,例如資訊站或收銀機裝置。Only use the EIC for specific devices that can't be frequently updated, like kiosk or point-of-sale devices. 至於您大部分的用戶端,則繼續使用自動用戶端升級Continue to use automatic client upgrade for most of your clients.

運作方式How it works

一般來說,當您為 Configuration Manager 安裝新的主控台內更新時,用戶端即會自動更新其用戶端軟體,以便使用這些新功能。Typically, when you install a new in-console update for Configuration Manager, clients automatically update their client software so they can use those new features. 在這類案例中,您仍會更新為最新分支,並接收新功能和更新。With this scenario, you still update to the current branch receiving the new features and updates. 大多數裝置會使用您安裝的每個更新版本來更新 Configuration Manager 用戶端軟體。Most devices update the Configuration Manager client software with each version update you install. 不過,您可以在不想接收用戶端軟體更新的關鍵系統子集上,安裝延伸互通性用戶端。However, on a subset of critical systems that you don't want to receive client software updates, you install the extended interoperability client. 除非您明確地對這些用戶端部署新版用戶端軟體,否則它們不會安裝新的用戶端軟體。These clients don't install new client software until you explicitly deploy a new version of the client software to them.

支援的版本Supported versions

提示

EIC 至少在發行日期兩年內都會受到支援。The EIC is supported for at least two years from the date of release. 如需發行日期的詳細資訊,請參閱 Configuration Manager 最新分支版本支援For more information on release dates, see Support for Configuration Manager current branch versions.

在用戶端的支援到期之前,請針對您使用最新分支管理的裝置,規劃其上的延伸互通性用戶端更新。Plan to update the extended interoperability client on devices that you manage with the current branch before support for the client expires. 若要執行此作業,請從 Microsoft 下載新版本的用戶端,然後將該更新的用戶端軟體部署到使用目前延伸互通性用戶端的裝置。To do so, download a new version of the client from Microsoft, and then deploy that updated client software to your devices that use the current extended interoperability client.

如何使用 EICHow to use the EIC

  1. 將這些裝置新增至集合,然後從自動用戶端升級排除該集合。Add these devices to a collection, and exclude that collection from automatic client upgrades. 如需詳細資訊,請參閱如何排除用戶端不進行升級For more information, see How to exclude clients from upgrade.

  2. 從 Configuration Manager 更新安裝媒體的 \SMSSETUP\Client 資料夾取得支援的 EIC 版本。Obtain a supported version of the EIC from the \SMSSETUP\Client folder of the Configuration Manager update installation media. 確定您已複製整個資料夾的內容。Make sure that you copy the entire contents of the folder.

  1. 在那些裝置上手動安裝 EIC。Manually install the EIC on those devices. 如需詳細資訊,請參閱手動安裝用戶端For more information, see Manually install the client.

    重要

    將 1606 版用戶端升級為 1802 版時,請使用 CCMSETUP 選項 /AlwaysExcludeUpgrade:TrueWhen upgrading version 1606 clients to version 1802, use the CCMSETUP option /AlwaysExcludeUpgrade:True. 否則,用戶端可能會從管理點收到原則,在排除原則之前自動升級。Otherwise the client may receive policy from the management point to automatically upgrade before the exclusion policy.

限制Limitations

  • 您無法藉由使用主控台內更新,取得延伸互通性用戶端軟體的更新。Updates for the extended interoperability client software aren't available by using in-console updates. 如需如何更新 EIC 的詳細資訊,請參閱如何升級已排除的用戶端For more information on how to update the EIC, see How to upgrade an excluded client.

  • EIC 只支援下列功能:The EIC only supports the following features:

    • 軟體更新Software updates
    • 硬體與軟體清查Hardware and software inventory
    • 封裝和程式Packages and programs
