By default, the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 management point uses its computer$ account when reading information from the site database, but you can configure a user account instead. You need this account if the management point needs to access a site database in a domain different than the site server domain, whether or not the domain is in the same forest.

To specify the Management Point Database Connection Account

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems / <management point name>.

  2. In the results pane, double-click ConfigMgr management point.

  3. In the ConfigMgr management point Component Properties dialog box, on the General tab, for the Management Point Database Connection Account, click Set.

  4. In the Windows User Account dialog box, specify an existing Windows domain user account and password, and then click OK.

  5. Click OK.
