Description of CSM for SCCM
CSM for SCCM integrates into the Customer's Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) management system. The integration is done through the Client Software and the CSM background services. CSM for SCCM configures the deployments, and certain other things, into the SCCM management system based on the Management Portal’s and Client Software’s configuration.
As a result, the SCCM system deploys the desired applications onto those workstations that are members of SCCM and the collections configured as the deployments’ target.
The Provider is not responsible for the Customer’s SCCM environment’s operation. Instead, it’s the Customer’s responsibility to take care of the environment's operation, any related platform services, and the necessary telecommunication connections to the CSM background services.
The Customer is also responsible for deploying the Client Software, and the necessary telecommunication connections to the CSM background services.
Task Sequence Auto-Update
The additional Task Sequence Auto-Update service automatically updates the new versions of the activated Supported Applications for SCCM’s tasks, immediately when the new versions are released into the Service. The tasks are used, for instance, to install applications into devices while an operating system is installed on a computer with SCCM. With this additional service, the CSM Supported Applications are up to date the minute the operating system’s installation finishes.
