The SMSAdmin account should have Full Administrative priveledges on the SCCM server. To do this you can add the SMSadmin account to the Local Administrators Group on the SCCM Server.

Go back to SCCM ConfigMgr, expand Site Settings and Site Systems, and click on your Server name. You should see that several Roles are already installed (Component Server, distribution point, management point, site server, site system, site database server).

Note: If you are not using the Configuration Manager AD schema *ie, if you have not extended the AD schema for SCCM as outlined here* , then you do need an SLP.For Server Locator point, however, if you plan on doing Build and Capture, then read below.

Select the Server Locator Point even though the AD schema has been extended for SCCM. This is because when doing Build and Capture of an Operating System, best practise means the computer is not domain joined, therefore it cannot get the information it needs (to install windows updates) from AD, it therfore retrieves the information from the SLP. Read this post for more info.

For State Migration point, click on the red exclamation mark to input a path to store the SMP data for example d:\smp this is where data will be stored during the OSD process if it has to be stored on the network.

Then we will have the Software Update point, WSUS 3.0 sp1 or later must be installed to use this feature, but if you’ve followed my guide from start to finish you’ll already have it (WSUS 3.1) installed.
