Internet DNS servers must be registered with a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the site systems that will support Internet-based client management, so that clients on the Internet can resolve the FQDN of Internet-based site systems to the public IP address of the Internet-based servers. These same Internet FQDNs must also be configured in Configuration Manager 2007 with the same Internet FQDNs.
The site system roles that can support Internet-based client management are the following:
- Management point
- Distribution points
- Fallback status point
- Software updates point
To configure the Internet FQDN of site systems that will support Internet-based client management
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.
Select the first server that will support Internet-based client management to display the list of roles.
Right-click ConfigMgr Site System, and then select Properties.
On the General tab, select Specify an Internet fully qualified domain name for this site system.
In the Internet FQDN text box, enter the Internet FQDN that is registered on the public Internet DNS for the server.
Repeat steps 3 to 6 for any remaining servers that will support Internet-based client management.
