Configuration Manager 2007 Primary Site Server is shown in Uninstalled roles rather than in Installed roles in SCW when the Configuration Manager site uses a remote SQL server
Description: When you run the Security Configuration Wizard, in the Installed roles view, the Configuration Manager 2007 Primary Site Server does not appear if the site is using a remote SQL server. However, it does appear in the Uninstalled roles view. Proceeding in the wizard with the Primary Site server listed as “uninstalled” will disable the “Configuration Manager 2007 Site Component Manager” service and the “Configuration Manager 2007 Site VSS Writer” service.
Workaround: To configure Configuration Manager 2007 Primary Site Server’s security settings in Security Configuration Wizard where the site server uses the remote SQL server, go to Uninstalled roles and check the checkbox of Configuration Manager 2007 Primary Site Server.
