At MSIgnite 2019 was announced that SCCM is now MEMCM and that Intune and MEMCM can be managed in one portal. With the update 2002 this option is finally there. Microsoft Endpoint Manager is an integrated solution for managing all of your devices. Microsoft brings together Configuration Manager and Intune into a single console called Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.
Where to start with Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager for this update.
When opening the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager console the update is not there. this is the update is released in Rings and I want to download this update from the fast ring. When starting this make sure your servers are healthy and are patched. If you run a tight virus scanner on the MEMCM then you may need to disable this during the install
As the update is rolled out globally in the coming weeks, it will be automatically downloaded, and you’ll be notified when it’s ready to install from the “Updates and Servicing” node in your Configuration Manager console. If you can’t wait to try these new features, see these instructions on how to use the PowerShell script to ensure that you are in the first wave of customers getting the update. By running this script, you’ll see the update available in your console right away.
After downloading and extracting the file we have a PowerShell script
Running this Powershell script in Admin Mode. With the Server name and I do a verbose to see a bit more output.
C:\EnableEarlyUpdateRing2002> .\EnableEarlyUpdateRing2002.ps1 -siteServer mvpsccm17 -Verbose
C:\EnableEarlyUpdateRing2002> .\EnableEarlyUpdateRing2002.ps1 -siteServer mvpsccm17 –Verbose
Now that the Script has run the Update services will trigger the fast ring to get the update
Press check for updates and do a refresh.
The Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager update 2002 is now available for download.
Now that the Update is downloaded we can trigger the Install.
This Process is a Next Next Close wizard and the only choice you need to make is run the agent in a test collection or strait into production
Here you have the option to test this update in an isolated Collection.
In this case I go strait into the production as this is my demo lab server
I Accept and my end date of the SA.
Well this was a pretty strait forward process now in the back ground Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager is updating the servers.
The progress can be followed in the log files when go to status the logs will be opened.
when the preparations are done Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager will start the installation. This can take some time so be patient. Don’t do a sudden reboot etc.
If you had a pending reboot the installation will fail, Reboot the server first then do the update.
Or check the Task Manger when the update is finished.
When the Update is Finished and opening the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Admin Console The update of the console is triggered and need to install.
The update is installed. and we can configure Co-Management
The default setting for device upload is All my devices managed by Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. If needed, you can limit upload to a single device collection.
Now that the installation is finished we can see the connector.
You can verify this in the Azure AD there is an app registration called ConfigMgrSvc
- Open CMGatewaySyncUploadWorker.log from <ConfigMgr install directory>\Logs.
- The next sync time is noted by log entries similar to Next run time will be at approximately: 04/02/2020 11:45:05
- For device uploads, look for log entries similar to
Batching N records. N is the number of devices uploaded to the cloud.
- The upload occurs every 15 minutes for changes. Once changes are uploaded, it may take an additional 5 to 10 minutes for client changes to appear in Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center. http://endpoint.microsoft.com/
In a browser, navigate to http://endpoint.microsoft.com/ or https://aka.ms/memac
below You see only MEMAC
When the Machines are Hybrid AD joined you can see both devices. the sync take some time.
This is the start to manage the devices from MEMAC. In the next blog I’ll show you more on the management.
