This will be to document our migration from Symantec Client Managment 6 to SMP CMP 7.1. It is scheduled to be set in motion sometime Jan 2013 with the help of Xcend consulting services which also implemented our 6.x environment.
We are a school district with 80+ remote sites. 25,000+ Windows XP machines, a few Win 7, 300+ Mac's, 6,000+ iPads. We have a centralized datacenter, with fiber connections to each site. We have Cisco networking gear with gigbit connections at most ports, along with Cisco Aironet access points at some campuses.
We use Altiris for all new and existing SO and software automation except for the Apple equipment. The suites used in Altiris are:
Depoyment solution, we have 10 DS 6.9 SP2 servers divided up amoung the sites.
Inventory via NS, we have 3 client facing NS with a report server. Lots of custom reports for compliance and inventory questions.
Patch managment, for desktop and servers.
