Configuring the AGPM Client

This section describes the process of how to automatically connect AGPM client to the AGPM server you have in your forest. If you do not perform this option step then each person that uses the AGPM will need to manually configure the Client to the correct AGPM server.

Step 1. Edit the Default Domain Policy using the Group Policy Management Editor (GPME) and navigate to Users Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > AGPM then edit the AGPM: Specify default AGPM Server (all domains)

Step 2. Tick Enable and then type the name/IP address then :Port number of the AGPM Server in the text field then click OK

(Hopefully this is the last non-managed GPO change you ever make again)
