How to Configure the Intranet FQDN of an NLB Management Point

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

If you are using a network load balancing (NLB) cluster in Configuration Manager 2007 for a management point on the intranet, you can specify it using an IP address or fully qualified domain names (FQDN). You must specify a FQDN if the site is in native mode.

Additionally, the FQDN of NLB management points in mixed mode must be registered to use a Service Principal Name (SPN). For more information, see How to Configure an SPN for NLB Management Point Site Systems.

ImportantImportant
Configuration Manager clients locate FQDN NLB management points through Active Directory publishing, or with the server locator point. If you are configuring an NLB management point with an FQDN, and you have not extended your Active Directory schema for Configuration Manager 2007, or you have clients that can't access the Active Directory information, ensure that you have a server locator point installed in the Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy and that clients can locate it. For more information, see Configuration Manager and Service Location (Site Information and Management Points).

To configure the intranet FQDN of an NLB management point

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

  2. Right-click Management Point Component, and then select Properties.

  3. On the General tab, select Network Load Balancing cluster virtual server.

  4. Click FQDN, and then enter the intranet FQDN in the text box Private DNS.

  5. Click OK.
