Steps to determine MS Endpoint Manager server name

I have Microsoft Endpoint Manager installed on my Windows 10 computer which is a member of my organization's Azure Active Directory domain.


I also have delegated administrator rights to our organization's on-premises domain controller and to Azure Active Directory and Office 365.


What steps can I follow to determine the computer name of the server running the Microsoft Endpoint Manager server?

From the server itself(?) open DOS window and type hostname
From a client open the CM agent and check the general tab, only if the Site server is your Management Point.
You have installed SCCM / MEM or just the console?
I would expect you are running only the console on Win 10, right?
If it is only the console application, you possibly find it in the control panel of you client, if your computer is a SCCM client. If not, you may ask the person, who set it up.

SCCM also published it information into AD (if setup in the right way) and the OU location is
your domain OU\system\System Management.
The server name can be found in one of the subkeys..., i.e. CN=SMS-MP-ServerName

The problem is that the Assigned management point value within the Configuration Manager Properties isn't displayed on all of the computers where I have looked for this value.

I have seen this value in other organizations where I have worked that have used SCCM but this value doesn't display within this organization.

What other methods can I use within Active Directory or Azure Active Directory to look up the server name of the Microsoft Endpoint (SCCM) Manager?

Also using the steps that Bembi provided, I don't see any System Management values within the OU\system location even though I have the Advanced Features enabled. This might be because I have only delegated administrator rights and not full domain admin rights.

Or is the System Management value located within a sub-OU or another location?

What other methods or PowerShell commands or scripts can I use to determine the Microsoft Endpoint Manager server name?

Does anyone know of any alternative methods to determine the SCCM server name?

From what I have been told there is only one SCCM server in this organization.

I need to document its name.

Yea, you even can not see it in the CCM settings.., there is usually a "Assigned Management Point" line.
If it is not written in the local AD, it is maybe cloud based.

I would have a look into the
C:\Windows\CCM\Logs
folder...
See ccmeval, ccmcloud, clientservicing, datatransferservice, wuahandler...
At least I can see there my management point URL. But possibly you find also something in other logs, dependent from the configuration.

What exactly or where exactly should I look in the logs to determine the hostname of this SCCM server?
