  • Hello!
    Can you be a bit more specific when you say "integrate" FCS and SCCM?  What are you trying to accomplish exactly?

    Thanks

  • Originally FFCS was marketed as being integrate-able with some of the System Center products such as Essentials so that one could go to a single console and verify things such as Updates/Software packages/AV definitions are all up to date in a single view...

    This never came to fruition.

    This may or may not be Shalureddy 's question, I'm not sure....

  • Got it - the integration of a single uber-console where you can do everything was not really the goal.  At this stage, it's more about leveraging the underlying infrastructure (MOM for data gathering/reporting, SCCM for distirbution of the clients,etc) - and reducing the # of overall consoles required. 

    The next edition of FCS will do a better job of reducing the console count, but we aren't there yet for  a single uber console

    Hope this helps
