How to Configure the System Health Validator Point Installation Account

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

The Configuration Manager 2007 System Health Validator point resides on the computer running Network Policy Server. To install this component for a site, Configuration Manager needs installation permissions.

When the Network Policy Server is in the same Active Directory forest as the Configuration Manager 2007 site server, or a trust exists between the two server domains, the computer account of the site server is used for installation without further configuration. However, when the Network Policy Server is not in the same Active Directory forest as the site server, or the domain in which the Network Policy Server resides does not trust the site server's domain (for example, through a forest trust or external trust), you must specify an installation account that can be used on the Network Policy Server computer.

This installation account requires administrative rights to install the System Health Validator point and to configure the System Health Validator component.

How you configure the System Health Validator point installation account depends on whether you need to define the Network Policy Server as a site system server, or whether you are adding the System Health Validator role to an existing site system server.

noteNote
The installation account will be used by all the selected site system roles on the server for both installation and configuration of that component.

To configure the System Health Validator point and specify the installation account on a new site system server:

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> – <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.

  2. Right-click Site System Roles, click New, and then click Server to launch the New Site System Server Wizard.

  3. On the General page, specify the server name and then click Use another account for installing this site system.

  4. Click Set, and in the Windows User Account dialog box, specify the account to use, type in the password and password verification, click OK, and then click Next.

  5. On the System Role Selection page, select System Health Validator.

  6. Click Next, click Finish, and then click Close.

To create the System Health Validator point and specify the installation account on an existing site system server:

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> – <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.

  2. Right-click the existing site system server to which you want to add the System Health Validator point, and then click New Roles to launch the New Site Roles Wizard.

  3. On the General page, specify the server name and then click Use another account for installing this site system.

  4. Click Set, and in the Windows User Account dialog box, specify the account to use, type in the password and password verification, click OK, and then click Next.

  5. On the System Role Selection page, select System Health Validator.

  6. Click Next, click Finish, and then click Close.
