Event Overview

Successfully implementing Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager requires detailed planning, and it is important to understand that planning process. While System Center Configuration Manager 2007 is very similar to Microsoft Systems Management Server, there are a few new issues you need to take into consideration when planning for and deploying System Center Configuration Manager 2007 clients effectively. Once deployment of the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 site is complete, it is necessary to prepare the infrastructure for deploying and upgrading clients. In this session, we cover the various methods of deploying clients in System Center Configuration Manager 2007. We discuss the prerequisites, in addition to the new client deployment methods that you need to know about to execute a successful deployment.
