Hi there,
Followed one of the article for installing SCCM2012 where it is advised to open up WMI and file and print services ports on the 'Default Domain Policy'.  Is it safe to open these services for everyone on Default Domain policy?

Normally those ports are opened on all Windows Domain Computers by Default in the Firewall.
So i would not deploy and policy....and never do such Settings in the Default Domain policy. Leave the policy as it is
