Prepare for HTTP-only client communication depreciation in ConfigMgr

Introduction

Microsoft recently announced that HTTP only communication will be dropped from ConfigMgr in 2022 here.

The advice is to enable a more secure communication method for the site either by enabling HTTPS or Enhanced HTTP. If you’d like to learn how to setup HTTPS in your lab and convert ConfigMgr from HTTP to HTTPS then please review the following blog posts.

What about enhanced http ?

Microsoft recommends using HTTPS communication for all Configuration Manager communication paths, but it’s challenging for some customers due to the overhead of managing PKI certificates.

Since ConfigMgr 1810 (first seen in 1806), Enhanced HTTP was made available to fill that gap. For more information see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/hierarchy/enhanced-http.
