System Center: Where to start?
Spent the day, again, yesterday getting my head around MS licensing and finally got a couple of PO's fired up the chain of command. Just saw this thread this morning: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/enterp...tml#post920902 - and it got me thinking. I know I want/need to get to grips with System Center, and sooner rather than later, but I'm actually completely lost at where the best place to start is?
Here's what I want to implement:
Replace our WDS with SCCM, and that thread made me want SCUP as well
Replace MSI role out with APP-V
Replace AVG with SC Endpoint
Replace Yosemite Backup with DPM
Introduce SCVMM to manage our network.
We have three host servers currently in the process of being upgraded to Windows 2012 DataCenter and Hyper-V v3. Each server is barely half filed with VM's. So we have plenty of space and licensing. I have a 1 VM : 1 Service policy, so we have nigh on 30 virtual servers now. The way I see it, each of the SC components should have their own virtual server? But, I know that the components are all inter-related - and I assume work together in the SC framework?
So where to start? How would you implement this set up?
