Hello,

Is it possible to manage Windows Server 2019/2022 using Configuration Manager which are not joined to AD domain (i.e. standalone servers) ?

If yes, whether these servers can be managed by ConfigMgr over internet? Came across below article which talks about 2 options, but are these options supported for Server OS as well?

Thanks

    Hi @Anjana R ,

    In theory, it could be manage Windows Server 2019/2022 using Configuration Manager which are not joined to AD domain, as our mentioned, it is recommended to use CMG firstly, and then IBCM, here is the detailed information: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/clients/manage/plan-internet-based-client-management

    However, as we know, SCCM belongs to the kind of on-premises, if we use CMG or IBCM, it is harder to push client or deploy application and etc. In this situation, it is better to use Intune to manage the client.
