I followed Management Console cannot access endpoint admin$ and everything worked according to the expected output in the guide. However, I still can't add endpoints to management server. Thanks.
So the issue your running into is not deployment of an agent but just "pre-adding" a computer to a deployment group so you can push the agent. You can simply bypass all this by installing the agent on the endpoint with command line switches to have it join the correct group.
msiexec.exe /qn /i "<MSI file path>\CommunicationsAgent.msi" WEB_SITE="https://<Management Server Name>/" GROUP_NAME="<DeploymentGroup>"
Make sure allow self-registration is enabled on the deployment group. Also the Management Server needs to be setup in anonymous mode as windows authentication will not work. To change this to into the Server Configuration Portal and change the authentication there from windows to anonymous for the management server.
Side note, personalization will not work in a workgroup, just EM, AM, and PM policies.
Well, Landon I think that would probably work, but I cannot get into the Server Configuration Portal. After looking around I found this little nugget (The Server Configuration Portal can only be accessed for servers on the domain, it cannot be accessed for servers in a workgroup.) at the bottom of this page: User Workspace ManagerServer Configuration Portal Getting Started
So, without being able to get into Server Configuration Portal to make the change... It appears that Microsoft AD is mandatory for UWM and suite. Unless there is another way to make the change you suggest, by config file, command line or powershell?
To my knowledge, the Management Center server must be joined to a domain. But as Landon states, non-domain endpoints can be managed, as long as authentication is set to anonymous.

So the Management Server has always worked in a workgroup. Its the new Server Configuration Portal in 10.0 and up that doesn't. That doesn't mean you can't use the Management Server in a workgroiup. Here is a quick setup in my lab with the AMC in a workgroup an a client connected.
You would need to use powershell to configuration the AMC. You'll also need to use SQL authentication for the configuration account and the service account.
You can get the powershell script here. Installing v10 into the default website
