    Hi All,

    A client of mine wants systems centre essentials on a non DC box,
    I know this isnt what MS reccomend and im also not sure if this will work
    Any ideas and thoughts on System Centre 2010 or previous versions ?

    Do you mean on a DC as as far as I know it's not recommended to be on a DC?
    It should be a member server and not a domain controller.

    Hey Luke,

    Mate i checked the official MS deployment guide and it said that it NEEDS to be on a DC.
    Are you running it another way ? im talking about installing the the full fat product, not reporting or console
    But everything on a single box.

    Hey, I've tested it and it runs fine not on a DC. We didn't go for it in the end as disk requirements for VMM is 150GB and we wanted to run it as HA VM and we haven't got that much space available. Also it doesn't do OS deployment which was a dealbreaker for us.

    But as I said. I'm sure it works fine on a member server (Microsoft advises not to install anything on a DC anyway).
    Do you have a link to that deployment guide handy by any chance? I wouldn't mind taking a look.

    Regards

    Hey man. I can see where you coming from. I'm sure this means it's supported on a domain controller as well as a member server. I've never seen Microsoft actually encouraging to install anything on a DC.

    So, don't worry about that. It just tells you that if you wanted to install it on DC, it is supported .
