SCCM Linux examples

Recommended Posts

I'm currently writing a thesis about SCCM. I'd like to write more about SCCM and Linux (because we've had a lot of Linux classes). I've found out how to install the SCCM client on Linux, this was easy to find.


Apparantly it is possible to use in SCCM to:

-deploy software to linux using packages (not applications)

-install program updates

-install OS updates


But I can't find any examples of this. Does anyone have or know interesting examples for this?


The only thing I found was this link that deploys a command to linux, and it doesn't even work for me. http://blogs.technet.com/b/michaelgriswold/archive/2013/09/02/testing-software-deployment-for-a-linux-machine.aspx


Any advice would be much appreciated.

the only thing I actually found was this:


which deploys a script. I didn't succeed in getting it to run though. Nothing happend. In some podcast I found they showed a package which installed a program on a RPM-based linux using the command rpm <filename>. I tried something like that with deb-files (I use Debian) and the command dkpg -i packagename.db. It failed too.
