Use the following procedure to provide information about the System Center Configuration Manager central site server; System Center Service Manager 2010 uses this information for self-service software provisioning.

Later, using the software deployment process you create, the site server information is also used to import the software package list. The software package list is made available to Self-Service Portal users so that they can request software.
