  • Dear Sir,

    AD System Discovery can't discover AD Sites. It only search the specified AD Locations for computer resources (not disabled).

    AD Forest Discovery can find IP subnets and AD Sites and add them to configuration manager as boundaries if you configured. So you need to check the AD Forest discovery method.
