SMS 2003 SP1 Administration Feature Pack

Updated: December 15, 2004

The English version of the SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack contains three tools that have been updated to support SMS 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1): the Managed Site Accounts Tool, the Transfer Site Settings Wizard, and the Elevated Rights Deployment Tool. The table below describes each tool.

Note: The SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack is localized in French, German, and Japanese only. If you run a localized version of SMS 2003 in any other language, then you should use the English version of the SMS 2003 Administration Feature Pack.

Feature Pack Contents

Manage Site Accounts Tool

Description

The Manage Site Accounts Tool manages accounts and passwords in use by one or more sites in a hierarchy, as well as the associated domain updates.

Features

  • Command-line and scripting interface with random password generation option

  • Enacts account and password updates for multiple sites in a single transaction

System requirements

  • SMS 2003 SP1 or later

  • Windows 2000 Server SP2 or later (SMS Administrator console computers)

Deployment notes

After installing the tool on a computer running the SMS Administrator console, access the tool using the Start menu program group and icon created by Setup. From the command prompt, you can enter commands to update accounts and passwords for SMS accounts and services for one or many target sites (or the local site). These changes will be processed in the background and SMS will replicate the changes to each target site using its built-in replication features (just as if you made the changes on a single site using the SMS Administrator console without the Manage Site Accounts Tool). Scripts can easily be created to integrate the tool into larger scale management of accounts or for the rapid password updates needed in critical situations.

Transfer Site Settings Wizard

Description

You can use the Transfer Site Settings Wizard to copy the settings from a source site to one or more target sites. Supported settings include site configuration, package, and collection settings.

Features

  • Import and export configurations and settings from an XML file

  • Supports offline or inactive sites automatically

  • Command-line interface for ongoing transfers to enforce a settings policy

  • Changes are recorded in an audit trail of status messages

  • Supports transferring SMS 20031 SP1 and Device Management Feature Pack settings

System requirements

  • Windows 2000 Professional SP2 or later

  • SMS 2003 SP1 System Administrator console

Deployment notes
  1. Install this tool on a computer with the SMS Administrator console that you use to administer and configure your sites (both the source site and target sites need to be visible to the Wizard).

  2. Select the source site, settings, and target sites to be processed.

The Wizard will make the changes and, in the background, SMS will replicate the changes to each target site using its built-in replication features (just as if you made the changes on a single site using the SMS Administrator console without the Transfer Site Settings Wizard).

Elevated Rights Deployment Tool

Description

The Elevated Rights Deployment Tool (also known as RunOnce) helps you deploy applications that require local administrator rights after a system restart, such as:

  • Microsoft Office 2000 System File Update

  • Office XP System File Update

Features

  • Migrates entries from the RunOnce registry back to SMS for managed execution.

  • Provides status reporting for both the pre-boot and post-boot phase of installation.

System requirements
  • Windows 2000 Server SP2 or later, for setup on the primary site server.

  • Windows 2000 Professional or later, for the SMS client.

Deployment notes

  1. Prepare the application to be deployed by placing it on a network share and identifying the setup program and command-line parameters that you would normally use to perform the deployment.

  2. Run the installation program for the Elevated Rights Deployment Tool and indicate the location of the network share, the setup program, and its command-line parameters.

Setup will create an SMS package, programs, program dependency settings, and an advertisement that is preconfigured. Run this tool once for each application that requires elevated rights after a system restart, such as the Microsoft Office 2000 and Office XP System File Update. SMS will then install the application on computers that you make members of a testing collection, allowing you to open the deployment more broadly.
