    Fantastic sessions at MMS 2013!!
    I am new to SCCM 2012(Previously Exchange Engineer) and I wanted to say your’s and Brians sessions were very beneficial!

    You mentioned in your session above you would release the “Database Estimate” spreadsheet, do you have a link?

    I want to say first I really enjoyed all your sessions.I have attended all of them.

    Here is my question…..
    I have 4 DMZ no trust relationship in different forest. I want to have only one site server sitting in my corporate network because it is managing three domains (trusted each other). In each DMZ I have 40 and max 270 clients. Can I manage these DMZ clients by opening ports 80/443/8351 to my site server? Do I need PKI cert? If yes, how do I setup? Or do I have to put DP/MP/SUP in each DMZ? I prefer the first option to the second one. I might get new DMZ in the near feature and don’t want to add MPDP for each DMZ created.

    Thank you

    Hi Kent,

    I have my environment set up and pushing out applications is working great. The issue lies with Task sequences. The policy will not download. It gets stuck. The IIS log on the MP is referencing the IP of the Primary site server. I don’t have IIS on that box and am wondering if that could be the issue. Please let me know if you have seen this problem and/or know what to do to overcome.

    not happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
