If you have decided to change the behavior of Configuration Manager 2007 native mode clients for HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment, follow these procedures to enable or disable this option for a native mode site.
The default setting for a native mode site is that this option is not enabled. To verify this setting for individual clients, see How to Identify Client Configuration Details for Native Mode and Internet-Based Client Management and the Https State Flags value.
There are two supported procedures you can use for this configuration. Choose the procedure that is suitable for your environment. The two procedures are as follows:
- Configure the option as a site property.
Client computers that can access site properties published to
Active Directory Domain Services will be automatically configured
with this option on a periodic basis (including at site assignment
time, every time the client starts, and every 25 hours). Clients
installed using the client push installation method will be
configured with the option at installation time only.
For installed clients to be configured with the setting using Active Directory Domain Services, the following conditions must all apply:
- Active Directory Domain Services must be
extended with the Configuration Manager 2007 schema extensions
- The site must be publishing to Active
Directory Domain Services
- Clients must be on the intranet
- Clients must be from the same Active
Directory forest as the site server's forest
- Active Directory Domain Services must be extended with the Configuration Manager 2007 schema extensions
- Specify the settings using CCMSetup.exe
command line options. You can use CCMSetup options when the client
is first installed, or supplied as a script to run after
installation, which will reinstall the client with the new
configuration. If the client is already installed, you can use the
software distribution feature to send the CCMSetup commands to the
client, or use a Configuration Manager 2007 task sequence to
Note If the settings supplied with CCMSetup conflict with those published to Active Directory Domain Services, and clients can access the settings in the Active Directory Domain Services, the settings from Active Directory Domain Services will take precedence and the settings specified with CCMSetup will not be used.
Additionally, you can also specify the settings using your in-house client management tools, which might include incorporating the settings in a standard build image and deploying custom scripts to edit the registry.
To configure HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment by configuring the setting as a site property:
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management.
Right-click <site code> - <site name> and then click Properties.
On the Site Mode tab in the site properties dialog box, select or cancel the option Allow HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment.
To enable HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment by specifying the setting using CCMSetup.exe command line options:
Use CCMSetup.exe with the command line property /native:FALLBACK (for native mode communication and HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment), or /native:CRLANDFALLBACK (for native mode communication and CRL checking and HTTP communication for roaming and site assignment).
