    SCCM R3 Out of Band Management Console - Serial Connection Failed


      Hello everyone,

      Really at a dead end and wondering if anyone had any suggestions.


      I have SCCM 2007 R3 installed on Server 2008 R2, and have been progressing with the configuration of Out of Band Management. Everything seems to be working correctly with the exception of the Serial Connection in the Out of Band Management Console within the SCCM console.


      The CA (also on Server 2008 R2) is issuing the certificates and I can see the SCCM server as the requester.


      My test workstation provisions correctly, I'm using a cert from Go Daddy and I'm able to connect with the OOBM console and control power etc. But the Serial Connection fails.

      AMTOPMGR.Log shows "Enable SOL with true and IDER with true"


      The OOBMConsole.log file shows the familiar errors:

      IMR_SOLOpenTCPSession fail with result:0x00000020


      I've seen the posts \ messages regarding the incomplete certificate chain but I'm not sure that is the problem.

      I've added the certificates in the SCCM server cert store too.


      If I run KVMView.exe independently of the SCCM console, but on the same server, I can establish a successful TLS connetion, just not from within the SCCM console itself.

      Other features, such as the WebInterface are also working correctly.


      Does anyone have any ideas where I'm going wrong, judging by the error in OOBMConsole.log it must be cert related, but I've run out of ideas.


      Thanks in advance
