  • Install a SCCM 2012 MP in a DMZ environment

    I’m installing a SCCM 2012 MP (SCCM setup) in a DMZ environment for SCCM/IBCM. The DMZ is only trusted one way from internal intranet to external in the DMZ. I’m using a sole service account for both the SCCM administration and SQL DB. The account is an intranet account.

    During the SCCM “Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 Setup Wizard” on the MP the “Connection to SQL Server on central administration site” FAILS. Error message: “XXXXXXXXXXXX.extranet.ABCDEF.com;    Connection to SQL Server on central administration site;    Error;    Setup failed to establish a connection to the SQL Server for the central administration site, or the user running Setup does not have sysadmin rights on the SQL Server.”

    All the SCCM communication ports have been open from extranet to the intranet and vise versa.  I tested them also using telnet just to rule out.

    Has anyone run into the trouble having and/or setting up the extranet SCCM MP to communicate to the CAS/DB internal? Is there a different method for configuring SCCM IBCM in a DMZ? Do I really need a SQL replication for internet base client to communicate internal. Do I need a SQL to begin with? Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
