Cannot view advertisements in Configuration Manager 2007 R2
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have just recently installed Configuration Manager 2007 R2 into my company network. I installed all required roles onto a single server using a SQL 2008 database. My current user account was used to do the initial installation, so I have administrative access to all aspects of the site server.
I have been using the Configuration Manager console from my local PC (Win2008 x64) to create new software distribution packages. The packages and advertisements seem to be created just fine, however, I noticed that when I try to view the advertisements on the server (Site Database - Computer Management - Software Distribution - Advertisements), I don't see any advertisements at all. I can see the advertisement status (Site Database - System Status - Advertisement Status), just not the advertisement itself.
I tried logging onto the Config Manager server itself, and from there I am able to view the advertisements just fine. So it seems to be something specific with my remote console running on my local PC.
I know running 2007 R2 on SQL 2008 is little buggy. I've installed some of the other recommended hotfixes, but I have been searching this particular issue and I haven't been able to come up with anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
