SCCM 2007 Guides


Recommended Posts

hi all,

Most of you are deploying Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 in an automated fashion, some of you will use or are using SCCM 2007. I've put together a list of some of the step by step System Center Configuration Manager guides i've created to help those of you who are starting with SCCM and for those of you using SCCM in a lab environment, hopefully this will make it easier for you to find the area that interests you. The main areas are

* Setup SCCM

* Updating SCCM

* Deploying Windows Updates using SCCM

* Deploying Applications

* Deploying OS

* Capturing OS

* Task Sequences

* Migrating Data using USMT

* Asset Intelligence

* Troubleshooting and Other

I hope that these guides help you to get your Lab up and running in record time and prepare yourself for Production. If you would like to contact me directly about this then reply to this topic or send me a pm, I'm happy to help.
