Install SEPM on a standalone server?

I am upgrading from SEP 11 to 12 but installing 12 on a brand new virtual Win08 R2 server starting from scratch. Just wondering if I'd gain or lose anything by not putting the 08 server on our domain (not join it) and then install SEPM? I have <100 clients to manage on our network. All are connected via DHCP to a MS domain and AD.

Thanks

I would join the server on the domain, otherwise you may have issues with authenticating to the clients, pushing out updates, etc.  It's best practice not to put it on a domain controller but other than that SEPM should be on the domain

This is not a common practice but it is possible. SEP clients do not need windows authentication to be managed by SEPM; as long as they can talk to the SEPM over port 8014, it will work fine.
