Managing SCCM from a workstation RRS feed

  • Question

  • If someone already asked this question, I appologize - I've browsed to the questions and discussions but not seen it.

    When SCCM 2007 is installed on a server, is it possible to manage it from an e.g. remote XP or Windows 7 machine, using domain admin credentials to open the console - without RDP that is.

    I don't actually want to install the SCAP extension on the server to perform compliance audits, but prefer to install it on my own workstation instead, hence my question above.

  • Hi,

    Sure it's fully supported to install the ConfigMgr. admin console on a workstation - Check this article for installation information http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632991.aspx

  • One follow-on point to make here is that domain admins do not automatically have permissions to do things in ConfigMgr -- as a matter of fact domain admins have zero permissions by default in ConfigMgr. Security must be separately granted to any and all users or groups requiring permissions using the ConfigMgr console.
