CMG allows us to manage our internet facing clients. Previously we have used Internet-based client management where we had to configure secure internet-facing site systems so that internet-based clients could communicate. This was a good technology with many advantages. However, there were also some disadvantages. Now we can use CMG to manage these clients. It consists of a Microsoft Azure cloud service and a ConfigMgr site system role that communicates with that Azure service. Internet clients can then use the Azure service to communicate with ConfigMgr.

This is really cool technology and gives us many advantages over traditional internet based client management. In this session, we'll learn how to set up a CMG.

You will learn:

  • About the Cloud Management Gateway and how it works to manage Windows clients over the Internet
  • How to configure the Cloud Management Gateway
  • See the management experience on a CMG client
