Agenda
 General overview of 2012 console
 Creating a OS deployment task sequence
 Distributing content
 Deploying
 Creating boot media
 Adding an unknown device to ConfigMgr for
deployment
 Kicking off the deployment
Agenda – Cont.
 While deployment runs…
 What is user-centric deployments
 Why does is matter to me
 Software Center
 Applications with “rules”

Sample App to JoeUser
 Primary Desktop – full install
 Shared Desktop – App-V download or stream
 Term Server – App–V stream
 Completed deployment
2012 Console overview
 Similarities from 2007 to 2012
 Collections
 Packages
 OS deployment
 DCM
 Reporting
 Differences
 All of the above 
 Console is now function based instead of console tree
 New
 Applications
 Software Center
 Architecture (hierarchy, roles)
OSD in 2012
 Good news, it’s pretty much the same
 Bad news, not everything is obvious and in central
place
 MDT integration – requires MDT 2012 (will be
released together)
 Basically the same


some new logic for partitioning drives
Application groups have 3 digits and must be converted to 2
digits for ConfigMgr (PACKAGES001 now PACKAGES01)
 Can deploy whole drive WIMs with multiple partitions
Creating a base image
 Minimum pre-reqs you need
 Operating System installation files
 ConfigMgr Client installation
 Network share for saving image to
 Credentials to write to share (service account)
 Additional
 Software Updates
 Applications and/or Packages
Importing an Image
 Demonstration
 Previously captured image from ConfigMgr TS
 Adding image
 Reviewing details in console
Creating a deployment task
sequence
 Demonstration
 Creation
 Distribution
 Deployment
Kicking off a deployment
 Demonstration
 Boot media
 Adding device resource
 Assigning primary user
 Initiating the deployment
User-Centric Paradigm Shift
 More and more the user is being “trained” by the
connected world we live in to want to leverage all
means possible to do what they need to do.
 This causes stress on sys admins and security policies
who used heavy controls to standardize
 Survey – how many are being forced to adopt
technology your staff, systems, or policies are not
ready for?
How does this apply to you for OSD
 How do you handle reinstall of user apps?
 Manual
 Direct membership (goes to every PC)
 Deploy to user groups (goes to every PC)
 What kind of deployment type do you do more?
 REPLACE - prebuild on bench
 NEW - prebuild on bench
 REFRESH – in-place
 Do you do REPLACE instead of REFRESH?
 Refresh requires application and user mgmt.
 High level of trust in the solution
Infrastructure Optimization
Basic
Standard
•Ad-Hoc
• Minimal systems
• Low implementation cost
•High Support Cost (actual
or unseen)
• High Maintenance
• No Scalability
• Low skill level
Rationalized
Dynamic
•Some Standard hardware
• Some Standardized
Application
• Some Infrastructure
Systems used but not
connected
•Leverage Infrastructure
systems
• Standardization of apps,
hardware, tools, users
•Leverage data/attributes to
automate use of
infrastructure systems
• Economies of scale
• Economy of scale
• Lower support cost
•Minimal implementation
cost (evolution)
• Cost savings from
standardization
• Not enough time or
resources to integrate
• Minimal maintaining
• Scalable
• Low support cost
•Higher implementation
cost
• Requires some
maintenance of
standardization
• Low support cost
• High implementation cost
•Economies of scale for
system maintaining
• Low - medium skill level
required
• Medium - high skill level
• High skill level

To leverage User-Centric
 Understand the User Experience Equation
 Users
 “Access Layers” (Devices)
 Applications
 State
 Data
 Assigning primary devices to users
 Similar to managing the hardware but enable dynamic
changes
 Requires trust (with controls)
User Experience Equation

In some instances these are
combined
• Local
• Folder
Redirection
• Web Apps
• SharePoint
• Cloud Storage
• Private
• Public
User Experience
What are devices?
 Are devices the physical end-point, or should we look
deeper?
Device concept
• Tablet
blurs
• iPad
• Phone
(Android/iPhone/Windows)
• Desktop
• Laptop

Access Layer
• VDI
• Citrix
• Terminal Services
• Laptop
• Desktop
• App-V
• Web App
• Applications
• Client/Server
App
Applications
 Packages
 Applications
 Deployment
types
 Dynamics and
rules
State
 Application Settings
 System Settings
 Things that apply to an object to make it unique
 Don’t confuse it with data
 Data when accessed by the Application + State
(configuration of application) should become useful to
the user.
Data
 Information that becomes useful when accessed by an
application.
 Application, state, and access layer provide
presentation of data to the user.
 Word document – following 3 scenarios the data doesn’t
change, just the way it is accessed and used.

SharePoint 2010
Wordviewer 2010
Microsoft Word 2010
Software Center in ConfigMgr 2012
 Device driven installs in the console
 User applications in the web app
 Admin approvals
 Requests for software
 How does this tie into rumored Windows Store for
Windows 8?
Sample Application Deployment
 JoeUser Computer
 Temp Workstation
 Newly Deployed workstation
Wrap up
 We covered some basics around OSD in ConfigMgr
2012
 User Experience Equation
 Applications vs. packages
 Demonstrated New system deployment
