SCCM Custom Port Option is Grayed out on CAS Properties Configuration Endpoint Manager. Today, Manju (commented on my post about SCCM 2012 SP1 known issues) helped me to notice one more change that we can see after ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 upgrade.
It seems you won’t be able to configure or enable “Use Custom Web Site” on CAS server site properties after the SP1 upgrade. All the options on the “ports” tab are disabled or grayed out. After the SP1 Upgrade, we won’t be able to change anything from CAS properties –> Ports tab (It becomes read-only).
SCCM Custom Port Option is Grayed out on CAS Properties
However, this option is enabled on Primary server site properties. Why is the option “Use Custom Web Site” or Use Custom Port” is Grayed out on CAS Server Site Properties?
I’m not sure this feature is knowingly DISABLED from CAS or not. When I checked and confirmed with the RTM version, the same setting is enabled and configurable on the CAS server.
The following description about the feature helps us to better understand? ” Specify the ports that Configuration Manager uses to communicate with clients on this site. SCCM Custom Port Option is Grayed out on CAS Properties.
The client may not be able to communicate with site systems if an alternate port is not defined for client request service”. The CAS server is not managing clients directly, hence do we really need the custom port or Website Settings enabled on CAS server site settings?
I don’t think so. Again, this is my take on this, I’m not sure this will have some adverse impact or not. SCCM Custom Port Option is Grayed out on CAS Properties.
