just one little note today: I’ve finally successfully configured and installed Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007. The thing is very tricky to install, mainly because most of the tasks pertaining to PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) that is, setting up the certificate infrastructure on your domain, are barely documented in SCCM 2007 Administrator’s companion. Thankfully, most of this is documented in this Technet article.
Make sure to do everything as mentioned and read it slowly. The most tricky part for me was the IIS certificate. I did it in a totally wrong way – I was probably doing something else at the same moment – and it was quite a mess! Thankfully it was fixed quickly enough. Provided that you reboot the machine.
One thing you should carefully consider is to make sure that your Active Directory domain controller is installed with the Enterprise edition of Windows Server 2003 otherwise you will not be able to deploy certificates using modified templates.
Have a lot of fun! 🙂
