Monday, June 30, 2008 1:45 PMI am just starting with MDM and have deployed the Device Management server - 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 SP2 on VMWare ESX 3.5. I have installed MBCA, PowerShell 1.0, and the MDM Best Practices Analyzer. It can find my SQL server and Certificate Authority, but then when I run the pre-deployment scanner it says Scan Failed - Unable to run scan for all servers. I have tried this from the MDM server and from a WinXP SP2 PC with the same result. I can ping all the servers from each other and the PC, and I am running this logged on with my domain admin account.
Can anyone offer suggestions on how to get this to work?
Thanks in advance...
