Configuration Manager 2007 site systems are assigned site system roles to help support the site and its clients. Each site system can be individually assigned different site system roles. Site system roles for individual server, or server share, site systems can be assigned in the Configuration Manager console.

To add new site system roles to site systems

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

  2. Right-click <site system name>, and click New Roles to start the New Site Systems Role Wizard.

  3. On the General tab, you have the options to do the following:

    • Specify a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for intranet-based clients to communicate with this site system. This configuration is recommended, but not required.

    • Specify a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for Internet-based clients to communicate with this site system. This option is required for supporting Internet-based client systems.

    • Select the account to install the site system files. The site server machine account is used if a Windows domain user account is not specified.

    • Enable the site system as a protected site system (responding to client requests only from specifically configured site boundaries).

    • Configure communication between the site system and site server to be initiated only by the site server.

  4. On the System Role Selection page, you can select from the roles available to assign roles to the site system.

  5. For each site system role selected, configure the site-role-specific properties (if applicable).

  6. On the Summary page, review the settings for the site system and the roles assigned to the site system before continuing. To make changes to any settings or site roles assigned to the site system, click Previous until you return to the page in the wizard where you set the detail. Once you are finished, return to the Summary page. To begin site system role installation, click Next.

  7. The Progress page displays the progress of saving the site system settings to the site server.

  8. The Confirmation page displays whether or not the site system settings were successfully saved in the site database.
