I have a group of 20-30 Win7 machines that I want to install, update, do some small configuration to and then deploy into 'the field'. At my job they use SCCM to maintain the systems so I started looking into using this. Its quite a complex app!
What Im wondering - is it possible to install and use this program in a (reasonably) simplified fashion to do small deployments? If we can get the Win7 bits to work we'd use it for other installations as well though none larger than a few hundred units.
Up till now we've always used Ghost to create our system images... and then recreate them when something is missing.. or updated.. Im hoping that SCCM is a 'better way' without being so huge as to take longer to setup that just imaging by hand.
FWIW: we have an msdnaa license so the cost(s) of the various apps are legal and covered.
