If you’ve wondered about ConfigMgr & Endpoint Protection Support for Azure Virtual Machines, here’s a great article for you.
Obviously, there is the new Cloud Distribution Point feature, but what about managing your Azure VMs with ConfigMgr?
There are 2 supported scenarios for this:
- Use an existing on-premises Configuration Manager infrastructure to manage Windows Azure Virtual Machines that are running Windows Server or Linux through a secure site-to-Site connection.
- Set up a single stand-alone Primary site in the Windows Azure Virtual Machines environment to manage Windows Azure Virtual Machines that are running Windows Server or Linux in the same virtual network.
The second scenario does have one important prerequisite, however. The all-in-one, stand-alone Primary site must be a single Windows Azure Virtual Machine that runs all required site system roles and Microsoft SQL Server locally without using any remote site systems or roles.
