How to: Installing Microsoft SCCM vNext Beta 1

Today I’ve installed the new version of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, named vNext! What a fantastic product! The installation is almost simular to the SCCM 2007 SP2 installation. I’ve made the following steps.

1.) Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 x64
2.) .NET Framework 4.0
3.) Microsoft SQL 2008 Server Service Pack 1
 4.) Database Engine Services
 5.) Reporting Services
 6.) Management Tools Complete
7.) Microsoft SQL 2008 Server Service Pack 1 CU8 CU8 (10.0.2775.0)
8.) Install the schema extension (extadsch.exe)
9.) Install BITS and Remote Differential Compression (RDC)
10.) Install Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) optionally
11.) Install Windows Deployment Services
12.) Give the vNext computerobject “full control” rights within your active directory on the organizational unit “System” (this object and all child objects).
13.) Install the PXE Service Point service role within SCCM vNext. This step is optionally when you’re going to use OSD.
