A while back, I posted a few articles on this blog that contained ‘no frills’ steps on how to get ConfigMgr installed, up, and running.  Of all the System Center products, ConfigMgr seems to have more moving parts and therefore perceived to be the most complex in installation and configuration.  So – I have once again posted an update to my steps to keep in line with the latest versions and such.  The attached are the updated steps that can help you get ConfigMgr up and running the fastest way that I know how using ConfigMgr 2007 SP1 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2, and SQL Server 2008.  As a bonus, I have also recorded two screencasts over on EDGE where I walk through these steps and explain things along the way.  Hope someone finds these useful!

Here are the links to the screencasts:

And again, attached to this blog are the updated ‘no frills’ steps…
