In a previous post about SCCM 2012 Beta 1 and the fact that it can manage Linux/Unix systems:
Since then, I’ve received many questions about it, specifically – which systems can be managed and what type of management can be done.
I haven’t testing it myself, yet, but here’s a list of all the supported systems and the management features:
- AIX Version 7.1 (Power)
- AIX Version 6.1 (Power)
- AIX Version 5.3 (Power)
- HP-UX Version 11iv3 (IA64 & PA-RISC)
- HP-UX Version 11iv2 (IA64 & PA-RISC)
- RHEL Version 6 (x86 & x64)
- RHEL Version 5 (x86 & x64)
- RHEL Version 4 (x86 & x64)
- Solaris Version 10 (x86 & SPARC)
- Solaris Version 9 (SPARC)
- SLES Version 11 (x86 & x64)
- SLES Version 10 SP1 (x86 & x64)
- SLES Version 9 (x86)
- Hardware Inventory – Hardware inventory can be viewed through Resource Explorer and can be used to create collections of UNIX and Linux computers.
- Software Inventory – Through hardware inventory the list of natively installed software can be gathered from the UNIX and Linux computers – similar to add/remove programs for Windows systems.
- Software Distribution – Deploy new software, update existing software and apply OS patches to collections of UNIX/Linux computers (using a package and program). Run arbitrary maintenance scripts on a collection of UNIX/Linux servers.
- Secure and Authenticated Communications
- Consolidated Reports
