pcnscfg, domain wide setting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When you're implementing PCNS, once you have PCNS installed on all your DCs and you add a target using the Pcnscfg.exe addtarget command in the command prompt. Is this setting domain wide? Do you run it just once on one of the DCs and the value for the target FIM instance will replicate to all the others or do you need to run the command on each DC with PCNS installed?

  • It is a domain wide setting. It is stored in the schema (after the schema extension). Replicated using AD schema replication. More info: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1597.troubleshooting-pcns.aspx.

    You need to add the target only in once DC.

  • All settings are stored in configuration partition not in Schema.

    One thing that is good to know and that I could not find. If you PCNS is installed in a different forest the SPN should be created in the domain that the target server is in. The pcnscfg.exe will tell you about that the SPN is missing but it's ok if you got it right.
