Microsoft System Center: Configuration Manager Field Experience
The purpose of this book is to provide System Center 2012 Configuration Manager administrators with helpful and tested real-world guidance from consultants and product experts at Microsoft. We want you to get the most out of using Configuration Manager in your environment regardless of whether the task at hand is querying the Configuration Manager database for system information, creating and customizing reports, or deploying operating system images to client machines.
The book is divided into the following three parts:
- Part 1: WMI for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager administrators is designed to familiarize you with basic WMI concepts and tools, show you how to use WMI classes to create Configuration Manager queries, and help you understand the underlying database design of Configuration Manager so you can create custom reports for querying the information you need.
- Part 2: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager reporting is designed to familiarize you with SSRS and show you how to integrate SSRS with Configuration Manager 2012 and to customize and create new reports using SSRS.
- Part 3: Configuration Manager deployment tips provides tips that cover a wide variety of different scenarios to help you ensure the success of your deployments.
The target audience for this book is administrators who have at least three years experienced working with previous versions of Configuration Manager and who have begun deploying and using Configuration Manager 2012 in their environment.
