When the Configuration Manager 2007 site is operating in native mode, operating system deployment clients require root certification authority certificates for the certification authorities used with Configuration Management.

Follow this procedure to specify the root certification authority certificates for operating system deployment clients assigned to the primary site and to its secondary sites.

noteNote
This procedure requires that you have exported the root certification authority certificates. For more information, see How to Prepare the Root Certification Authority Certificates for Operating System Deployment Clients.
