Role Based Administration: Tips and Tricks

During this Webinar, Chris Nackers will take you through the ins and outs of Role Based Administration in System Center Configuration Manager 2012.  For example, do server administrators want to set up their own ConfigMgr environment?  View this webinar to learn how to separate the server and desktops teams and keep the peace.  We also cover some tips and tricks you won’t want to miss!


We also had a few questions during the webcast which I promised to post a follow-up for everyone as well.

Q: How to set RBA for Software meetering to delete a rule?

A: You will need to create a custom Security Role and  allow Delete-access to Software Metering.


Q: Any idea when RBA will be turned on for reports?

A: This has been added in R2.

Q: Are any changes or enhacements to RBA coming w/ R2?  Might our existing custom security roles get messed up?

A: One major change is the ability to finally be able to control reporting through RBA. Existing custom security roles should be fine with the R2 upgrade.


Q: Can you grant read-only to a scope instead of a collection?

A: You can associate read-only access to a particular scope.


Security Role Templates

Last but not least, I promised I would provide some of the custom Security Roles I showed in the Demo.
