My previous blog I posted talked about how to Deploy System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager with Multiple Site Servers for a Lab Environment. It was an example I to show how one can deploy ConfigMgr across many site servers based off of different deployment scenarios. I decided to do a quick follow up blog that would help someone deploy ConfigMgr 2012 R2 to a more realistic environment. If you happened to read my previous blog this one will contain a majority of the same information but geared to a single site server deployment. In most cases unless you are an extremely large organization this type of deployment is what you will be doing anyway.
Just like my previous blog I will split this into three parts.
I will break it part down and focus more on certain areas of deployment and configuration. For the infrastructure section I will assume that the audience reading this blog is sufficient in IT infrastructure and keep that at a higher level. In this blog I will only discus the basic configurations of a a few site server roles and components. I won’t go into much details about Operating System Deployments (OSD), Software Updates, Configuration and Compliance settings (DCM), and detailed Endpoint Protection configurations. These are all good topics that should be dealt with in more details within their own blog.
