A Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Site Address Account is not always required. If trust relationships exist between the site domains, you should use the site server's computer account as the Site Address Account. If you must connect to a site in a different forest, you must configure a Site Address Account.

If you specify a Site Address Account for an address and then later decide you want to use the computer account as the Site Address Account, you must delete the address and re-create it. Changing the account name is not sufficient when switching from a user account to the computername$ account.

To specify a new Site Address Account

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / Site Database / Site Settings / Addresses.

  2. Right-click the address whose Site Address Account you want to change, and then click Properties.

  3. In the Address Properties dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Set.

  4. In the Windows User Account dialog box, specify an existing user account.

  5. Click OK to close the dialog box, and then click OK to close the Address Properties dialog box.
