We are running SCCM 2007 SP1 on a Windows 2008 x64 with SQL 2005, we have the Out of Band management setup already and we have a couple of workstations that are clients. Now we want to start using V-Pro on laptops. Does anyone know what the requirements have to be for the wireless connection in terms of secure or unsecure?
Hi Esaboopa, I see your looking for bring up info on SCCM and wireless, you have come to the right place. I would also suggest you do a search on "Deploy Wireless with SCCM" as a search string, there are a number of docs and discussions on this topic. BUT! the first thing to do is make sure you have the latest wireless FW available for your laptop. AMT 2.6 wireless firmware is the latest and has support for certificates of authority and other wireless support that will make it easy to deploy wireless.
here is a partial list of articles you can read on vPro Expert center about SCCM andwireless deployment
Thanks so much for the feedback, I will let you know when we deploy how it goes, I might be posting back.
For the wireless communications - is there anything required in terms of networking encrpytion?
Yes, wireless Encryption requires the use of a Radius server running 802.1x there are articles available on Expert center. Search on "Wireless encryption", there are multiple documents and people that can help with your initial implementation. good luck
