How do you set up your collections?
Just setting up SCCM2007 for the first time (need it now, will look at 2012 later) and right now, all I want to do is get FEP ready to push out to Windows 7 and I'll look at the rest of the possibilities later (although not OS deployment, contrary to the forum - FOG already does that for us).
I'm guessing I can just set up a collection for all Windows 7 machines to push FEP out to, but it does have me thinking: how do you all use collections for deploying software?
At the moment we only use MSIs with GPOs, and beyond an Essentials GPO for Flash, Java etc. every package gets its own GPO as they often end up being assigned rather randomly - e.g. Science have booked the tech computer room for a lesson, need package X, can I push it out in time please.
I don't want to start creating a security group for every SCCM software package to replicate this, so wondered what the various approaches were. Do you just have "IT rooms" as a collection and push all IT-related software to that collection? Do you then add other rooms into that collection if you suddenly need the software elsewhere? Do you just use collections tied to AD OUs?
(a lot of this comes from the fact I've forgotten everything I learnt about collections and what they actually represent, and I havenae the time to go through TechNet again this close to needing it all just working. Can I push software to multiple collections? Can computers be in multiple collectons? Will we ever find out why toast always lands butter side down? So many questions, so little time)
