Description of CSM for MECM
CSM for MECM integrates into the Customer's Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM) management system. The integration is done through the Client Software and the CSM background services. CSM for MECM configures the deployments, and certain other things, into the MECM management system based on the Management Portal’s and Client Software’s configuration.
As a result, the MECM system deploys the desired applications onto those workstations that are members of MECM and the collections configured as the deployments’ target.
The Provider is not responsible for the Customer’s MECM 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
Task Sequence Auto-Update feature automatically updates the new versions of the activated Supported Applications to MECM task sequences, 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 MECM. With this additional service, the CSM Supported Applications are up to date the minute the operating system’s installation finishes.
