So I finally managed to get a server deployed to a remote site, connected via a throttled WAN link. It only took three years or political style lobbying, before it was agreed that two or three hundred people pulling their monthly software updates down a capped WAN link probably needed to be changed.
I gleefully fell upon my server, and dived straight in. Admittedly this was a mistake. I haven’t setup a Management or Distribution Point for some time, and I had forgotten a couple of key points.
Namely pre-requisites, but they’re boring, right?
I dived in, just about remembered how to sort the web server certificate and the distribution point full private key; IIS was installed with the same options as per the existing Management Points. What could now go wrong? I sat back and basked in my all-encompassing glory.
Of course it didn’t work though. Now yes, Config Manager loves to chuck out errors the first time it does something, but when you’re still getting those errors an hour later, you’ve derped something.
Honestly boss, I’ve got this.
