About boundaries in SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I ever pushed sccm client installation wizard, but it won't work when i check option "include only client in this site boundaries", though the client PC is within the subnet boundaries...

    I read from this link and saying after create the boundary, i need to publish this site at AD Domain Services:

    http://deployingwindows.co.uk/site-design/installing-your-sccm-site-part-two/

    What i would like to know, what the exact changes at Active Directory (what entry) appears in AD...?


    Thanks!

    You need SLP OBJECT in AD without extending the shema is not possible.

    If you wanted to manage clients without extending schema. See, more details on the article below Decide If You Should Extend the Active Directory Schema

  • I dont see relation between your answer and my questions.

    What i was trying to do is just use service locator point to deploy sccm client.

    But in order to achieve that, i did the client push installation, and found that the installation wont work if i check "include only clients in this boundary", which the term boundary i understood is the one i set with IP subnet/AD site <= i've done this.

    My question is, what kind information/entry will be written at AD once i publish the site at AD services ???

    I think, you have not gone through the links in details:)

    There are lot of information which is stored in AD like SCCM Boundary details, SLP details, MP details, SMS-site details etc....

    See each and every details about attribute http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680568.aspx

  • It will publish, information about the site, boundaries, MP, SLP, and the installation Commandlines used by the client. With those information published, a client will be able query AD for it's assigned site. Futhermore you can start a manual installation of the client just typing ccmsetup.exe then the installation process will automatically query AD for the published commandlines.

  • Hi all,

    Thanks for clarification. So what i catch so far, plz CMIIW, the information that will be published to AD IF i publish them is only happen if i use the AD EXTEND SCHEMA method, not the service locator point method (which is currently i use)...

    I was thinking that by chose "Publish this site to AD" will solve my previous problem (cannot push client installation if i check ''include only clients in this boundary")...but apparently it doesn't in case i use service locator point...


    Thanks!

  • Fist of all you need to extend the AD schema. Once that is done you may need to create "System Management" Container in AD (follow the process mentioned in the article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632591.aspx)

    Then you can select the default option publish this site AD and this will create relevant objects under "System Management" Container
