Setting up a Proxy MP in SCCM... (SQL question too)
Posted on 2011-03-25
Hi All. I just setup a secondary site w/o SQL and would like to set it as a Proxy MP and protected Distribution point. While setting up the site was easy, some of the options seemed ambiguous to me when running the 'Add Role' wizard. Sorry for all the questions, just that the MS documentation on what to do AFTER you select 'Add Role' for a proxy MP is almost non-existent. We are using SCCM 2007 R3 & SQL 2008 Std.
1. Setting up a ProxyMP on the new site. Asking 'Specify the account used by management points computer account. I selected 'Use the management points computer account.' Correct? Or should I use the SCCM Administrator account, which is in our Domain Admin AD Group?
2, Should I check 'Allow only Site server initiated data transfers from the site system?'
3. Should I check 'Allow devices to use this management point.' Is this for client pcs, or does it mean mobile phones, etc.
4, 'Specify the account used by the management point to connect with the database.' Default is to use the management points computer account. Or should I use the SCCM Administrator account for this?
5, Perhaps most important, how do I add the new secondary sites computer into SQL for proper permissions? I did not setup SQL on the primary site this one will connect to, and not a 'SQL guy' in any way. Is there a (relatively) easy guide that will walk me through doing this so the new secondary site ProxyMP can properly connect to the parent SQL db?
