If your Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 site servers and System Health Validator points are not in the same Active Directory forest, you must designate the Active Directory forest and domain that will store the health state references, and you must specify an account to use when System Health Validator points read health state references from Active Directory Domain Services.

If no account is configured, Configuration Manager attempts to use the System Health Validator point computer account to read health state references.

To specify the Health State Reference Querying account

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

  2. In the results pane, double-click System Health Validator Point Component.

  3. In the System Health Validator Point Component Properties dialog box, click the Health State Reference tab, and then click Designate an Active Directory forest.

  4. For the Health State Reference Querying account, click Set.

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