This book is perfect for IT administrators who are looking to enhance their skills on system and asset management. A fair understanding of the core elements and applications related to SCCM would be helpful.
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is a powerful system management product that helps IT administrators perform better asset and organization management by grouping them into logical containers. These logical containers allow you to perform application deployments and software and security updates in no time.
Mastering System Center Configuration Manager explains the Configuration Manager architecture, hierarchy, and components, as well as how to use them. It also provides advanced-level content on how to set up System Center Configuration Manager and integrate it with an existing system. You will also find information on deploying applications, creating client settings, and integrating Configuration Manager with Windows Azure to utilize its full power. At the end of the book, you will learn how to troubleshoot issues with SCCM 2012 R2 on the server side and also on the client side.
Design, implement, and improve your infrastructure administration with System Center Orchestrator 2012 R2's automation process
This book is targeted at those who want to gain time in their administrative tasks and profit from it to also improve their environment by reaching a more autonomous infrastructure.
With the increasing complexity of systems in our infrastructure designs, administrating these systems has become more complex and repetitive. This ultimately translates into an inefficient environment and a loss of time. System Center Orchestrator 2012 R2 is the tool that can help you regain that time again, by simplifying repetitive tasks (or complex ones) into a simple one that will require minimum intervention from you, or even none.
Starting off with the fundamentals of Orchestrator, this book helps you to learn the configuration and deployment of the Orchestrator 2012 R2 in a corporate environment to successfully deploy and mitigate real life issues that you might encounter. You'll learn the most used part of Orchestrator, the Runbook Designer, with all its components and mechanisms to help you efficiently design and implement your Runbooks from top to bottom. You finally round off by gaining insights on the maintenance aspects of Orchestrator, while simultaneously covering the troubleshooting, backup, and recovery features.
Efficiently administer, automate, and manage System Center environments using Windows PowerShell
If you are a Microsoft System Center administrator who manages System Center environments and utilizes the console for management, then this book is ideal for you. This book is also for System Center users who now want to learn to manage systems using PowerShell.
Microsoft PowerShell as a scripting language has been growing strongly over the last couple of years. It has given administrators and IT professionals much more control when managing and implementing tasks within System Center environments. System Center facilitates the configuring, monitoring, and managing of the components of a private cloud. It covers products such as SCCM, SCOM, SCSM, SCVMM, and so on.
Starting with an introduction to PowerShell, this quick reference guide will enable you to get the most out of the latest Microsoft PowerShell techniques to manage the suite of System Center products. You will also get acquainted with the enhancements in the latest version of System Center automation with real-time examples.
By the end of this book, you will have the confidence to create a variety of PowerShell scripts and efficiently administer and maintain your System Center environment with PowerShell.
Over 40 practical recipes to help you plan, create, and manage reports efficiently for all components of Microsoft System Center

Welcome to Microsoft System Center: Optimizing Service Manager. We (the authors) all work with systems management at Microsoft and believe that the Microsoft System Center suite is one of the most integrated suites on the market for this purpose.
s businesses move more toward cloud computing, one important factor for success is adopting multi-tenant software-defined networking (SDN) solutions in data centers Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) is a key enabler for a multi-tenant SDN solution and is essential for implementing a hybrid cloud environment where tenants can bring not only their own IPs, but their entire network topology since the virtualized networks are abstracted from the underlying fabric network Network virtualization in general and Hyper-V Network Virtualization in particular are relatively new concepts Unlike server virtualization, which is a mature, widely-understood technology, network virtualization still lacks this kind of broad familiarity.
According to the Hyper-V Network Virtualization Overview found at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134230.aspx, Network Virtualization “provides virtual networks to virtual machines similar to how server virtualization provides virtual machines to the operating system. Network Virtualization decouples virtual networks from the physical network infrastructure and removes the constraints and limitations of VLANs and hierarchical IP address assignment from virtual machine provisioning. This flexibility makes it easy for customers to move to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds and efficient for hosters and datacenter administrators to manage their infrastructure while maintaining the necessary multi-tenant isolation, security requirements, and supporting overlapping Virtual Machine IP addresses.”
Microsoft System Center is one of the three pillars of Microsoft’s Cloud OS vision that will transform the traditional datacenter environment, help businesses unlock insights in data stored anywhere, enable the development of a wide range of modern business applications, and empower IT to support users who work anywhere while being able to manage any device in a secure and consistent way. The other two pillars of the Cloud OS are, of course, Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Azure, and Microsoft Press has recently released free Introducing books on these platforms as well.
