Configuring Windows Server 2008 for SCCM Site System

Decided to put this down to make it easier to remember the things needed to be done before SCCM can be installed. I want to make it as easy as possible instead of going through the online library.

So, to begin, here are the list of things you need to tick when installing roles/features.

  • Background Intelligent Transfer Services (BITS)
  • Remote Differential Compression
  • WebDAV Publishing
  • ASP
  • Windows Authentication
  • IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
  • IIS 6 WMI Compatibility

Now, you just need to go to the IIS Manager and navigate to the default website (unless you are using SMSWEB for custom Web site). Here you are to configure WebDAV.


Here just go ahead and Enable WebDAV


Then add an Authoring Rule


Select All content, All users and Read.


Now, WebDAV Settings…


Look for the Property Behavior and just flip the first 3 items from “Fales to True” or “True to False”. The final setting should be True, False, True. Look at the picture below:-


Also flip the “Allow hidden files to be listed” to True. Don’t forget to Apply the settings. That’s all folks. Now that’s a lot easier.

    • Though this has nothing to do with installing your site server on Windows Server 2008, you do need to run the Active Directory User Group discovery first.
