Microsoft SCCM License
Microsoft System Center(SCCM License) is a set of server management products used to help managers or IT companies manage their systems, typically a network of Windows servers and desktops. These products are sold separately and work together to achieve integrated management to reach a common ground.
Microsoft System Center and related licenses offer a variety of services to users and network administrators. In the following, we will briefly explain some of these services.
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
The most important tasks of this service are configuration management, management of hardware resources and distribution of security packages on clients and reporting of clients, software and hardware.
Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager
This service is a great platform for managing virtual machines and data centers, as well as a management tool for managing Hyper-V. Hyper-V as an enterprise-scale platform, features such as failover clustering and replication of multiple Hyper-Vs across different types of physical servers help simplify and scale the MSCVMM virtual infrastructure.
Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager
The most important function of this service is to protect data and recover data in Windows-based environments, as well as to support shared folders, Exchange mailboxes and disks by the SQL Server database.
Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
The service monitors operating systems and virtualization infrastructure, provides critical information such as the health status and performance of services to network administrators and notifies system administrators in the event of errors or security problems in the configuration.
Microsoft SCCM Features
Using this platform provides features to network administrators and users that we will mention in the following.
The SCCM service has a feature called OS Deployment that installs Windows seamlessly on all of an organization’s computers.
This feature not only simplifies the installation process for the organization’s users’ computers, but also saves time. In OS Deployment, the original version of Windows is applied in two ways:
Through the original version of Windows (default) in which no changes are made to the Windows image and is installed on OS Deployment by default.
Through the edited version of Windows, that is, a series of programs are already installed on the original version of Windows, and then the original version, which is installed on the OS Deployment, is installed on the computers of users of the organization when installing Windows.
Using tools such as Windows ADK and Windows PE, it is possible to create a custom version of Windows. Using the USMT tool inside Windows ADK, the user’s profile can be easily transferred from the old version to the new version of Windows. Also in the SCCM management console, you can make the original version of Windows Capture and use it if necessary.
This feature can be used to install and manage applications in SCCM and its licenses with the help of Software Center that is installed on the organization’s clients under licensed SCCM. This feature helps IT managers a lot in managing, installing and removing applications.
When assigning an application to a client or device, determining how to install an application in a Deployment Type will depend on the requirements and dependencies of that application.
Multiple Deployment Types can be used in an organization. For example, A Deployment Type to install similar programs for Windows 10 operating systems in an organization and a Deployment Type to install monitoring programs on servers and so on.
Some extensions or Deployment Type are:
- Script Installer
- Executable (exe)
- Web Application
- Windows Installer (msi)
- Windows App-V v4 and v5
- Windows Phone App Package (xap)
- Windows App Package (Appx or Appxbundle)
- Windows Phone App Package in the Microsoft Store
Software Update Point
This feature in the SCCM License allows all software updates to be downloaded from the Microsoft License site and installed and updated on the organization’s clients. This feature provides excellent benefits such as maintaining the organization’s resources and preventing security threats in organizations. With this feature, you can also receive updates such as security updates or software updates from the Microsoft site on a weekly or monthly basis and updated on the organization’s servers and clients.
This service has other features that it will not reinstall if it was installed on the client before updating the software or security. Because this service regularly synchronizes its information with the Microsoft site.
Deployment of program updates is done automatically and manually:
Automatic Deployment Rule: Configured with a feature called Automatic Deployment Rule (ADR) that organizations will use for their monthly updates.
Manual method: In this method, admins in organizations will perform the process of selecting software updates.
This feature also supports Third Party Software Update for updating non-Windows applications such as Macs and Linux.
This feature allows network administrators to troubleshoot hardware, software, and other network systems management on client computers through remote access. Users can also be members of the Domain or Workgroup of this section.
Remote Control feature dependencies are:
- The Client Agent must be on the client side of the installation.
- Client card client drivers need to be upgraded to the latest version for better remote access.
- By default, this feature is disabled when a licensed SCCM is installed and must be enabled for all clients.
- The Reporting Services feature, which is discussed below, must be installed for the Remote Control service before reporting.
Reporting Services Point is a service that is installed on a server running the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting service. Reporting Services Point Copies the settings manager’s reports to the Reporting service, creates report folders based on the category of reports, and creates security policies in the reports folder, and the report settings manager adjusts reports based on role-based permissions for office users.
In this SCCM License feature, the Reporting Services Point connects to the Reporting service over a period of 10 minutes to change security policies again if changed. When you run a report in the Configuration Manager console, the Report Viewer opens and connects to Reporting Services. After specifying each required reporting parameter, the Reporting service retrieves the data and displays the results to the viewer. Managers of organizations can also connect to the SQL Server Reporting service and then to the site data source and execute the reports.
