Installing SCE 2010 console on a different domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an SCE 2010 server installed in our production domain and a remote console is running on another server in that domain.  I would like to install the console on my local laptop to use it whenever connecting to the domain via VPN to monitor/manage the servers out there.  I have followed the instructions to manyally install the necessary certificates, but am getting the following error when connecting to the SCE server from my new local console install.

    Application Version: 7.0.2432.1
    Severity: Error
    Message: Failed to connect to server 'vault'.  Insufficient privileges

    Aside from the certificates, i don't see anywhere to specify my domain credentials for the production domain.  All that is asked when connecting is the remote server name.  What am i missing here?  Is this configuration even possible?  thanks.

  • This might be the issue.  The new console install and SCE server are on different domains that are not trusted.  Is there no way to pass the proper domain credentials from the console to the SCE server?

    Hi,

     

    Please ensure you installed the console in a trusted domain and check the settings referring to the following guide:

     

    How to Install System Center Essentials 2010 Console on a Remote Computer

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb437322.aspx

     

    Meanwhile, please use the administrator account of SCE to logon the computer and open the console.

     

    If the issue persists, please also check the Event Log on the server and let us know the details if you find any related errors.

     

    Thanks.
