My SCCM 2007 is up and running
In the past I have used WDS for large deployments of laptops. I recently have moved to SCCM 2007 on a Windos 2003 server. I have also tried on Windows 2008 server. Both works. I have tried SCCM on Domain controller and on member server. All works. The deployment is successful now. I am now deploying large number of laptops again. I just need to PXE boot and the rest is done without any intervention. Joining OU is automatic, laptop naming is automatic, driver integration is very easy. Forefront End Point Protection is integrated in the SCCM console and easy to deploy. Windows updates are easy to deploy as well.
I am not an expert on this product. I did face problems at every step. But step by step I have overcome all problems and now I have a functioning SCCM. I did a bit everyday. Watching youtube videos, windows-noob website and this site has helped me on the way.
If anybody is planning to deploy SCCM 2007 then you can ask me questions. I do not know all answers. But will try to help.
