I'm very pleased that TrueSec have just published my video training series
Manage ConfigMgr Internet clients with the Cloud Management Gateway
There are five videos in the series:
Introduction to the CMG
This video is an Introduction to the Cloud Management Gateway. Previously when we wanted to manage ConfigMgr clients over the internet we would use Internet-based client management. This was a good technology with many advantages. However, there were also some disadvantages. Now we can use Cloud Management Gateway to manage these clients. It consists of a Microsoft Azure cloud service and a ConfigMgr site system role that communicates with the Azure service. Clients can then use the Azure service to communicate with ConfigMgr.
This is cool technology and gives us many advantages over traditional internet based client management.
Prerequisites for the Cloud Management Gateway
This video describes the general requirements for the successful implementation of a CMG solution. This includes specific ConfigMgr requirements and the certificates required for Cloud Distribution Point and Cloud Management Gateway.
Certificates for the Cloud Management Gateway
This video is all about certificates. These are the tasks that admins find the most difficult. We’ll be creating the certificates necessary for the configuration of the Cloud Distribution Point and the Cloud Management Gateway.
Configure the Cloud Management Gateway
In this video we will create the Cloud Distribution Point and Cloud Management Gateway. Then we’ll add the Cloud Management Gateway Connection Point.
Finally, we’ll configure the Management Point and Software Update Point to allow CMG traffic.
Managing clients with the Cloud Management Gateway
In this video we’ll have a look at a Windows 7 client and see how the behaviour changes when the client moves from the intranet to the internet. We’ll deploy software to the internet client. Finally, I’ll show you a couple of tricks that should be useful for your deployment.
I hope you enjoy the videos. Thanks to Johan Arwidmark and the guys at TrueSec.
Until next time......
