scom monitoring non domain computers (Windows Server 2012)

snoopaloop used Ask the Experts™

I've installed the SCOM agents manually on each of the non-domain Windows Server 2012 boxes and completed the first step in the article above which was to import the certificate via mmc.  I believe the second part of that document was written for Windows 2003/2008 as I cannot locate the add Stand-alone snap-in account.  Does anyone have documentation on how to complete this task for Windows Server 2012 non-domain workgroup machines?

The snap-in you have to add only exists on a server that has the Certificate Authority role installed on it. After that is installed, you can open the MMC and add the Certificate Templates Snap-In. Note that the steps outlined there required that you first have a Certificate Authority server in your Domain. If you do not have one yet, you'll need to create one.
