Does ZCM 10 need to be installed in a Windows Domain?

Hi There,

this maybe a bit of a silly question, so please try not to laugh too much! 🙂 I just wanted some clarification as to if ZCM10 needs to be installed and configured on a server that is part of a domain - basically i am looking at setting up a MS 2008 server that sits on it's onwn outside of a domain that then manages several sites within different domains - does that make sense?

Any help or guidance much appreciated. mike.

It makes NO difference.

The ZCM Server can be a stand-alone server, It could be in a Domain with
the the devices it helps manage, it could be in a different domain than
it manages, you could have two ZCM servers in two different domains,
etc.. etc.. etc..

Hi Craig,

Thanks for that, the only reason i was asking is that ZCM 10 install moans about not being able to find fully qualified domain name because this isnt in a Domain and was wondering if that will cause problems later on - i have DNS confiugred and running accordingly for my setup. Thanks, mike.

Re: Does ZCM 10 need to be installed in a Windows Domain?

Well, That warning may cause an issue going forward.

If you completed the Install, make sure the Certificate Created has the
correct "Subject" It should be the proper fully qualified DNS name.

Then you need to check to make sure that both Forward and Reverse DNS
work for that Subject.

You'll need to setup stub zones for the other domains in the DNS you point the ZCM server to.

>It makes NO difference.
I saw a case where they had the firewall(s) turned on, on a Windows
2008 r1 system.
That meant the "local" firewall settings automatically changed to the
"system" firewall when added to the domain. That causes the ZCM system
to be unable to use certain ports, that are opened when installing the
ZCM.

It's probably a good idea to make GPO's specifically for the ZCM
servers to handle that problem.
