After installation, MDM 2008 SP1 does not support the modification of the driver and services configuration files. These XML-based files should not be changed by the administrator.

The following is required before you install Mobile Device Manager Enrollment Server:

Before you take a computer that is running SQL Server offline for planned maintenance or backup, you must stop MDM Enrollment Server. After you bring the computer that is running SQL Server back online, you must restart MDM Enrollment Server. If MDM Enrollment Server loses access to an SQL database, MDM services that are running on MDM GCM may stop. If this occurs, you must manually restart MDM services.

To install MDM Enrollment Server

  1. On the installation CD for System Center Mobile Device Manager, on the Setup menu, choose Enrollment Server.

  2. On the Enrollment Server Setuppage, choose Next.

  3. Read the End-User License Agreementand then select the I accept the License Terms for Microsoft Softwarecheck box. Choose Next.

  4. On the Instance Selection, select the instance you want to add the server to. You can only add servers to MDM instances of which you are a server administrator. Choose Next.

  5. On the Installation Directorypage, type the path of the directory, or accept the default directory path, and then choose Next.

  6. On the Database Installation Optionspage, type the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the location of the computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server®. If you have a server that is running Microsoft SQL Server locally, you must still supply the FQDN, and you cannot enter the value, localhost or localhost\ <sqlinstance>. Select the Current Windows credentialscheck box, unless you can access the SQL database instance only by using another user name and password. Choose Next.

  7. On the Enrollment Server Locationpage, in the Configure the Enrollment Serversection, type the external FQDN for MDM Enrollment Server in the External enrollment FQDNbox. Type the internal FQDN in the Internal enrollment FQDNbox. If you are using more than one server that is running MDM Enrollment Server, type the internal and external FQDN for the load balancer. To continue without enrollment FQDN validation, select Skip Enrollment FQDN validation(not recommended), and then choose Next.

    To clarify, the administrator must enter the FQDN of a specific MDM Enrollment Server, such as servername.yourdomain.tld. The external address is the MDM Enrollment Server address accessible from outside your company network. The internal address is the MDM Enrollment Server FQDN used from inside the company network. In some cases these FQDNs may be the same. If you are using, or will ever use, multiple servers that are running MDM Enrollment Server, you must enter the FQDNs for any load balancers to make sure that Setup correctly configures the MDM certificates and service connection points (SCPs).
  8. On the Enrollment Setuppage, specify the port that you want to use for the Administration Web site, and then choose Next. This port will be used for all MDM Enrollment Server administration. You must make sure that the port is currently not in use.

  9. On the Device Certification Authoritypage, in the Device Certification Authoritybox, type the location and the name of the certification authority that will enroll and manage the certificates for the Windows Mobile devices, and then choose Next. Type the certification authority in the form of <ca_server_name>\<ca_instance_name >. This should be a certification authority where you have the MDM certificate templates enabled.

  10. On the Server Certification Authoritypage, in the Certification Authoritybox, type the location and the name of your certification authority server, and then choose Next. Type the certification authority in the form of <ca_server_name>\<ca_instance_name>. This should be a certification authority where you have MDM certificate templates enabled.

    If you prefer manual certificate installation, select the Do not request certificates during setupcheck box (not recommended).
  11. If you have not already configured Microsoft Update on the server, a Microsoft Update page will appear that prompts you to configure the server for Microsoft Update. Make your selection and choose Next.

  12. On the Ready to Installpage, verify your selections, and then choose Install.

  13. Choose Finishto complete MDM Enrollment Server Setup. You must allow enough time for Active Directory replication to finish.
