Description

With a primary site and site server now installed, this course turns the attention to MECM's clients. While MECM is a great solution for deploying software, there is as you might imagine some client-side bootstrapping that's required to install clients and begin communication. MECM supports at least six different ways to deploy client software, as well as innumerable ways to customize client behaviors once installed.

In this third course out of sixteen, Microsoft Endpoint Manager: Deploy MECM Clients, you'll begin by exploring the preparatory configurations that are required for any MECM primary site before beginning client deployment. Next, you'll first walk through four of the six major client deployment options, including all the steps you'll need to successfully automate your deployments. Finally, once installed, you'll explore the MECM client itself. By the end of this course, you'll understand the user-focused UI, as well as the monitoring solutions in the MECM console for validating client health over time.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the third course in my learning path on the implementation on everyday use of Microsoft Endpoint Manager, including Configuration Manager, or MECM, and Microsoft Intune. I am a principal author evangelist here, at Pluralsight, and I've been working with MECM since way back in the days of SMS version 1.2. With a primary site and site server now installed, this course turns our attention to MECM's clients. While MECM is a great solution for deploying software, there is, as you might imagine, some client‑side bootstrapping required to install clients and begin with communication. MECM supports at least six different ways to deploy client software, as well as innumerable waves to customize client behaviors once installed. In this third course out of 16, you'll begin by exploring the preparatory configurations that are required for any MECM primary site before beginning client deployment. Next, you'll first walk through four of its six major client deployment options, including all the steps you'll need to successfully automate your deployments. Finally, once installed, you'll explore the MECM client itself. You'll see the user‑focused UI, as well as the monitoring solutions there in the MECM console for validating client health over time. If you've just been tasked with implementing and/or managing a Microsoft Endpoint Manager environment, this course is your next stop for brushing up on those skills for success. And then from there, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we explore all the major areas of endpoint configuration that you get with a fully realized Microsoft Endpoint Manager solution. Let's get started.
