Managing Security Using Device Manager 2011

5/4/2012

This section provides information about how Device Manager 2011 uses the Configuration Manager 2007 security model.

Gg749297.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gifNote:
If you change user permissions and want the new permissions to be effective immediately, restart the Common Components Service. To restart the service enter the following Services Snap-in command: net start “EDM Common Components Service”. For more information about how to use the Services Snap-in commands, see Start, stop, pause, resume, or restart a service on TechNet. Otherwise the new permissions take effect in 60 minutes.

By default, the only accounts that have permissions to all the objects in the Configuration Manager console are the Configuration Manager installation account that was used to run Configuration Manager setup and the local system administrator account. You must explicitly add other accounts and grant them permissions to the Configuration Manager objects. If the accounts are not already a member of the SMS Admins group, you must grant them WMI permissions to run the Configuration Manager console.

Gg749297.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gifNote:
If you encounter issues using Configuration Manager security rights, use the local system administrator account that was provided during Configuration Manager installation.

When you enable hardware inventory to use collections and reports, use the standard security rights for inventory as documented in Configuration Manager Help. For more information, see Overview of Configuration Manager Object Security and WMI on TechNet.

Gg749297.note(en-us,TechNet.10).gifNote:
Users who create a collection create an instance of a collection object and are automatically assigned Read, Modify, and Delete instance permissions for that collection. These permissions may not match the class rights you have set for Device Manager 2011 collections. To make sure they match, expand Computer Management, click Collections, expand All Windows Embedded Devices, right click the new collection, click Properties, and then click the Security tab. Update permissions as needed. For more information, see the Security Rights Property Pages in Configuration Manager Help.

You need specific permissions to use the Configuration Manager console to create configuration items and configuration packages and assign them to collections. The following table shows the permissions that are required to perform a specific task across each security rights class.
