Determine Windows Server 2012 readiness : MAP Toolkit v7.0 Beta now available. Find out about more new features

May 24, 2012 1 comment

Key Features for a detailed insight to address an upgrade, migration, virtualization :

  • Understand your readiness to deploy Windows in your environment with Windows readiness assessments
  • Determine Windows Server 2012 Beta readiness
  • Investigate how Windows Server and System Center can manage your heterogeneous environment through VMware migration and Linux server virtualization assessments
  • Size your desktop virtualization needs for both Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and session-based virtualization using Remote Desktop Services
  • Ready your information platform for the cloud with the SQL Server 2012 discovery and migration assessment
  • Evaluate your licensing needs with usage tracking for Lync 2010,  active users and devices, SQL Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 Beta

You can use the MAP Toolkit to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Desktop and server migration to a Windows Operating System such as Windows 8, Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 365, and Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 and Windows Thin PC.
  • Assess and identify computers running Windows Server operating systems in your environment.
  • Assess and identify computers running virtual technologies in your environment.
  • Discover and report on computers running Microsoft, VMware, HP-UX and Linux platforms, including the Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (LAMP) application stacks in your environment.
  • Assess and identify computers that have outdated or no security-based software (antispyware, antivirus, and firewall products) in your environment.
  • Discover and report on computers that are virtual machine candidates.
  • Assess and inventory Microsoft SQL Server® instances, databases, and components in your environment.
  • Discover MySQL, Oracle, and Sybase databases in your environment and assess the ability to migrate to Microsoft SQL Server.

 Installation Prerequisites

  • Dual-core 1.5GHz processor,  2 GB RAM (Itanium processors are not supported)

Operating system. Any of the following:

  • Windows Server 2012, W2008R2 SP2, W2008 SP2 (x86 or x64 versions)
  • Windows 7 SP1 (x86 or x64 versions)
  • Windows Vista SP2 (x86 or x64 versions)

Software pre-req

Recommendations

  • Do no install on a domain controller.
  • Close all open applications before running the setup wizard.
  • If your firewall doesn’t accept listing a service like WMI or Remote Administration, you will also need to open ports 135 and 1024-65535. The reason for this has to do with the way RPC works. WMI uses DCOM to communicate with remote machines, and DCOM uses RPC extensively
  • If the computer is in a workgroup, you must manually change the “Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts” policy setting from Guest only to Classic on the local computer
  • To connect remotely and perform the WMI inventory, you will need to provide accounts that are members of the local Administrators group on the computer being inventoried

Collectors by Inventory Scenario:

  • Windows computers – WMI
  • Linux/UNIX computers – SSH
  • VMware computers – VMware
  • Active Devices and Users – Active Directory, WMI
  • Exchange Server – Active Directory, WMI
  • Forefront Endpoint Protection Server – PowerShell, WMI
  • Lync Server – PowerShell, SQL Native, SQL Windows, WMI
  • SQL Server Inventory – WMI
  • SQL Server with Database Details – SQL Native, SQL Windows, WMI
  • Windows Azure Platform Migration – Oracle, SQL Native, SQL Windows, SSH, WMI
  • MySQL, Oracle and Sybase – Oracle, SSH, WMI

2. Edit the following local computer policy settings:

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Credential Delegation / Allow Delegating Fresh Credentials
  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Credential Delegation / Allow Delegating Fresh Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication

There are two methods that you can use to make the following policy changes. You can edit the local group policy, or you can open a command prompt and run a series of WinRM commands. If you edit the local group policy, it can take some time for the changes to take effect. If you run the WinRM commands, the changes take effect immediately.

  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Remote Management (WRM) / WinRm Client / Allow CredSSP authentication
  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Remote Management (WRM) / WinRm Client / Trusted Hosts

WinRM commands ( open the command prompt – Run as Administrator ):

winrm qc -q

winrm set winrm/config/service/auth @{CredSSP=”True”}

winrm set winrm/config/winrs @{AllowRemoteShellAccess=”True”}

winrm set winrm/config/winrs @{MaxMemoryPerShellMB=”2048″}
