Thanks, webdes03, I did find that post too, but it doesn't apply to my question as he assumes (see the assumptions) that you are running on the PS server. I would like to know how to get PS to manage SP from a client (Windows 7 to be precise). With SCOM and also with SQL, this is a separate installation, but nothing is readily apparent regarding SP 2007. – user2589 Mar 9 '11 at 20:21
