How can I configure Windows 10 to send an error report to an internal Corporate Error Reporting (CER) server while connected only to an internal network that has no internet access?
Windows pops up a dialog box when attempting to check for a solution for a problem: Problem Reporting, "Connect to the Internet, or try again later - Solutions are available online only. Make sure you're online and try again. If you still can't see the solution, the service might be temporarily unavailable."
I'm able to switch networks (from the internal restricted network to an outside network that allows internet access) by physically switching the cables and running
ipconfig /release and then
ipconfig /renew and all of the error reports immediately send to the CER server.
I'm able to ping and map network paths to/from the CER server while on either the restricted or external networks.
It seems to me that the idea of an internal CER server is to allow errors to be reported internally and should have no need for an internet connection, just a valid network connection to a CER server. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
My setup info: The CER server is setup on Windows Server 2012 R2 w/ SQL Server 2014 SP1 and System Center Operations Manager 2012 R2. The specific part of SCOM that I'm interested in is Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM). I've configured Windows 10/7 systems to send reports using group policy and occationlally by manually editing the registry. For the sake of this question, I've only applied settings directly generated from SCOM into an .adm file to enable AEM. I'm happy to answer any clarifying questions.
TechNet Article (old) form MS that leads me to believe this is possible:
The best method to use to prevent the automatic flow of error reporting information to and from the Internet is to redirect error reports to a server on your intranet by using Group Policy and to set up Corporate Error Reporting (CER).
