SCCM 2012 Boundaries and Boundary Group. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    we are in process of migration from SCCM 2007 R3 to SCCM 2012 R2 SP1. Is there any issue if we configure the boundaries in the both environments ( SCCM 2007 & SCCM 2012)?

    Its standalone primary site and enabled the fall back site.

    By default SCCM 2012 clients will check the site version and assign only to SCCM 2012 site.

    TIA

  • Overlapping boundary/groups for content location are supported - site assignment boundary/groups must not overlap (but there is basically no need for them when using a standalone primary site).

  • Thanks for the Update Torsten.

    I will agree with you. we are in process of SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 migration. I need information regarding Is there any issue if we configure the boundaries in the both environments ( SCCM 2007 & SCCM 2012)?

    Based on that we will configure AD forest discovery and boundary groups in SCCM 2012.

    Note : All clients are not upgraded to SCCM 2012

    TIA

  • As Torsten already pointed out. You must not have overlapping boundaries for site assignment.

  • Thanks for the update Garth.

    We are going to build single standalone SCCM 2012 Primary site. So no overlapping boundaries for site assignment.

    I need information whether we can define same boundaries in SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012 because we are not planning to do upgrade all clients at once.

    Also we can not expect all SCCM 2007 clients migrate to SCCM 2012 100%. 

    TIA.

  • Bhavani, As I have already said. "You must not have overlapping boundaries for site assignment." What is not clear about that statement?

  • Its 2 different Environments ( SCCM 2007 & SCCM 2012). In this scenario also we can not configure?

  • All replies given are valid for two (or more) different environments.

    I'm sorry but I'm not following you.

    You CAN'T have the same boundaries in CM07 and CM12 for site assignment.

  • Thanks Garth.

    I will build as Standalone Primary site . Hope not required to configure the site assignment will configure boundary groups for content locations.

    In this scenario can we configure boundaries on both environments ( SCCM 2007 & SCCM 2012)?

    If Yes, we will configure AD forest Discovery to create boundaries in SCCM 2012.

  • Bhavani ... please review all replies above. Overlapping boundaries/groups for content location are supported even in the scenario you described.

  • I will agree with you Torsten. I know Overlapping boundaries/groups for content location are supported but site assignment is not supported.

    My concern here i want to enable the AD forest discovery to create boundaries automatically instead of creating manual efforts.

    we are in part of migration from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012. Once SCCM 2012 up and running we will decommission SCCM 2007 servers. 

    In my new SCCM 2012 environment  have only standalone primary site . So not configuring the boundary groups for site assignment.

    In this scenario if both environments have same boundaries created will have any impact?
