SCCM 2012 R2: VPN Profiles Step-by-step Guide

SCCM 2012 R2 is now able to deploy VPN settings to users in your organization. VPN Profiles only support the following

  • Devices that run Windows 8.1 32-bit
  • Devices that run Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Devices that run Windows RT or Windows RT 8.1
  • IPhone devices that run iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7
  • IPad devices that run iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7

Below is the step-by-step guide that I created from my lab.

Configure VPN Profiles in SCCM 2012 R2

image
Navigate to \Assets and Compliance\Overview\Compliance Settings\Company Resource Access and Right click on VPN Profiles. Select Create VPN Profile

image
Specify the Name of the CPN Profile and then click Next

image 
Select the dropdown menu from the Connection type of your vpn connection. I’ve selected Microsoft Automatic for mine.
Click Add to add your vpn server and finally the DNS suffix. Click Next when you’re done.

image
Select the Authentication method from the dropdown menu. I’ve selected MSCHAP v2 for mine.

image
I don’t have any proxy on my lab environment, hence I leave it default and click Next

image
I didn’t configure the Automatic VPN, default settings

image 
On the Supported Platform, I’ve only selected Windows 8.1 devices for mine

image 
Confirm the settings and then click Next

image 
On the Completion page, click Close

Deploy VPN Profiles in SCCM 2012 R2

Now you’ve already configure the VPN Profiles in SCCM 2012 R2. It’s time to deploy to the users that need VPN connection. Yes, you can only deploy the VPN Profiles to User Collections.

image
Navigate to \Assets and Compliance\Overview\Compliance Settings\Company Resource Access\VPN Profiles. Right click on the VPN Profile you’ve created, and select Deploy.

image
Click on Browse to target the User Collections and then click OK

SCCM 2012 R2 Client

image
I forced the client to grab the policy by running User Policy Retrieval & Evaluation Cycle.

image 
The VPN Profile deployed should appear under Configurations tab after the client receive the policy. Evaluate the policy manually.

image 
The VPN should appear under the Network Connections after the evaluation completed

image 
Click on the Network icon in notification area and you should able to see the VPN connection deployed. Click the VPN Profile and select Connect.

image
Enter the credential and click OK

image
The VPN Profile that I deployed to the lab environment is connected.

Enjoy!!!
