Deploying Configuration Manager Current Branch with PKI - Step by Step
Deploying Configuration Manager Current Branch with PKI - Step by Step
About the Book
This book covers the entire end-to-end planning, installing, updating, configuring and deploying a complete system with a full PKI infrastructure to boot! That element alone, documented in Chapter 2, cannot be overemphasized and is worth the cost of the book all by itself! When I was looking into the implementation of the then-new and shiny Internet Based Client Management (IBCM) feature many years ago, all I knew of PKI was how to spell it. I would have given anything for this information back then. For you, it’s all crystal clear, and found right here in chapter 2.
Beyond that element, you will first see listed out all the prerequisites necessary, the various roles and features to be implemented, the black magic that is SQL Server, your domain configurations clearly explained and necessary (which will keep your Domain Admins away from your desk!), and then walk you through how to install it all. You’ll then end up with SSL security, the MDT Toolkit fully integrated, updated to Current Branch 1710, initial configuration settings applied, and clients deployed. In other words, you’ll create a completely functional system with all of the latest-and-greatest. If you’re naturally lazy like me, and you don’t particularly want to go through all of this yourself but just want it DONE so you can get on with it, guess what? There’s a SCRIPT to do it all FOR you!!!
Lastly, the authors’ then go on to also manage all of that hocus-pocus called networking! I never pretended to be a network engineer. As far as I’m concerned, they all live in a foreign land complete with its own language. NAT? Wasn’t that a famous singer back in the day??? What’s that got to do with anything? Well, in a simple-to-follow procedure in the prerequisites section, they make it all clear, and why.
