As you configure your environment to deploy MDM 2008 SP1, use the MDM Deployment Worksheets to compile information about IP addresses, server names, port configurations, and so on.

To complete the pre-deployment tasks in the checklist, see System Requirements for MDM Servers and Managed Devices.

After you complete the pre-deployment tasks, complete the deployment and post-deployment tasks by following the instructions described in the MDM Deployment Guide.

Dd261940.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gifNote:
You can use MDM Best Practices Analyzer Tool to analyze a group of servers to determine if prerequisites for deploying MDM 2008 SP1 are met. You can also use the tool to analyze servers post-deployment to verify things such as port settings. To download the tool, see MDM Best Practices Analyzer Tool at this Microsoft Web page: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=127030.
