Renaming SCCM 2012 Boundary Groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have another question about SCCM boundaries. The last SCCM admin named the boundary groups as server names and then placed the "Boundaries" (Austin) inside the "Boundary Groups" (SRV-TX-A91). Since our servers are constantly getting updated and go some go offline.

    EX: (The "SRV-TX-A91" server is now "SRV-TX-A921", over half of the servers have been replaced and some sites have been split off.)

    It's starting to get confusing. Wondering if i can rename the "Boundary Groups". I want to rename the "Boundary Groups" by region (TX-Central).

    Would it cause a problem? I don't see why it would, but i though I would see if anyone has had to rename their "Boundary Groups" and if it caused a problem or if there were any caveats.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

  • You can rename *everything* in ConfigMgr with no impact except programs and the site itself.

  • As long as you only modify Name / Description on Boundaries or Boundary Groups, you should be fine.
