In Detail

Microsoft Configuration Manager is both extensive and complex, and for many, it is the primary tool for Enterprise management. With each new release, Configuration Manager continually proves itself to be the ultimate solution for managing both clients and mobile devices.

This book covers in detailed and easy-to-understand steps how to set up highly available Configuration Manager roles and backend services such as SQL, DNS, and AD. You will learn how to plan for high availability, what kind of roles there are, and how they scale.

The book starts by examining what needs to be taken into account when planning for high availability before moving on to focus on the different roles and how they can be set up. The book will also go through different scenarios as well as various backup and recovery procedures. You will learn how to identify bottlenecks within the different components and create sample design scenarios for high availability on Configuration Manager. The book will also look at the different high availability options and how to deploy them.

Approach

This book is a step-by-step tutorial that guides you through the key steps in implementing best solutions for high availability and performance tuning. It is split into two distinct approaches: client and site side HA and optimization.

Who this book is for

Microsoft SCCM High Availability and Performance Tuning is for IT professionals and consultants working with Configuration Manager who wish to learn the skills to deploy a redundant and scalable solution.

      Comments about oreilly Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager:

      I was looking for a way to get a basic understanding for SCCM and its components. In other words, I'm not a perfect match for the author's intended audience :) However, the book proved to be a good read even for someone like myself with limited to no experience of the product. The included scenarios were helpful in pointing out specific HA related considerations and sorting out backend components. I would recommend the book to someone who, like myself, wants to get acquainted with the product and learn about the different components and dependencies, but to get going will require additional reading. To the SCCM jockeys out there, the book is a quick read likely to improve your current HA configuration and/or give you food for thought for future improvements to your environment.

      I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It acts like a pocket guide giving you the essentials of SP1 from SCCM2012.
      Would have loved it to be bigger and have more content since it was a joy to read. bit.ly/1aNS1b9
