Update December 2013

Since this blog was posted in 2011, we have rolled out many updates. All versions of SCCM 2012 are supported, including SP1 and R2.

 

Archived Blog from December 2011…..

There has been a lot of curiosity about our plans for supporting SCCM 2012 in Adaptiva OneSite.

We have so far expressed a general commitment to supporting SCCM 2012 within 90 days of RTM, barring any major late-breaking design or schema changes.

Soon after the release of SCCM RC1 in late October, we had announced our detailed OneSite plans, which you can see here.

Today’s post provides an updated SCCM 2012 support statement for Adaptiva OneSite.

Current Features

All OneSite features continue to work unchanged with SCCM 2012. The underlying schema changes are detected and handled automatically.

You can install OneSite in under five minutes on an SCCM 2012 Site, from start to finish.

The administrative experience continues to be as seamless as before. All SCCM objects, new and old, are available from inside the Adaptiva OneSite Workbench; the object explorers automatically refresh in real time, and you can drag and drop everything everywhere, as long as it makes logical sense.

On To The New Things

Complete support is provided for the new Application Model. An Application Explorer is included. As you create, modify, or delete Applications, OneSite detects your changes in real time, and take appropriate action, as it does for other types of content: packages, software updates, and images.

Applications automatically download on demand to your remote locations using OneSite P2P and bandwidth harvesting technologies. All advanced OneSite content management features – compression, byte level differencing, disk space harvesting, automatic cache management, and daisy chaining – work unchanged for Applications.

You can pre-stage Applications to any part of your network using OneSite Content Push policies. You simply open the Application Explorer, and drag and drop the desired Application into a Content Push Policy. The selected Application is added to the Content Push policy, and is pre-staged to the selected collections on the schedule(s) you specified.

Packaging

We plan to ship a single common version (Version 2.1) of OneSite that works transparently for SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012. It will figure out the differences during installation, and automatically adapt itself depending on what you’re running.

Version 2.0 of OneSite is currently available under evaluation license upon request directly from Adaptiva. It is fully supported for lab use on SCCM 2012 RC1. If you have a Microsoft support plan for SCCM RC1 in production, we will support you in production.

Upgrade from Version 1.3 and Version 2.0 to Version 2.1 will be fully supported, and will be a simple 5-minute process. All cached content in branch offices will be automatically preserved.

Release Dates

Version 2.1 will be available within 90 days of SCCM 2012 RTM by Microsoft.

Support

Microsoft’s support for pre-release software can sometimes vary depending on the program through which you’re participating. Our support for OneSite will generally match or exceed your current level of Microsoft support for SCCM 2012.

Version 2.0 releases are fully production worthy. If you’re testing SCCM 2012 RC1 in production, we’ll happily support OneSite in production for you.
