Configuration Manager Clients on Workgroup Computers
Configuration Manager 2007 supports client installation for computers in workgroups. You can install workgroup computers in the below options
- The client must be installed manually on each workgroup computer. During installation, the logged-on user must possess local administrator rights on the workgroup computer.
- The workgroup computer must be able to locate a server locator point to complete site assignment because they cannot query Active Directory Domain Services. The server locator point can be manually published in WINS, or it can be specified in the CCMSetup.exe command line properties.
- There are a number of limitations to supporting workgroup computers in WINS:
- Workgroup clients cannot locate their default management point from Active Directory Domain Services, and instead must use DNS, WINS, or a server locator point
