Site Code not showing in Console for all clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hopefully this is a quick question, in the console we have created a collection of systems with no configmgr clients. Why do some of the clients in this collection have a site code of PRI and the others are blank?

  • Mostly. Systems without a site code and without the client agent installed are not within the scope of defined boundaries that are also included in site assignment boundary groups.

    Two parts there. First only clients without an agent installed and properly reporting back to the console are relevant. Once the client agent is installed and reporting back to the console, boundaries are meaningless for site assignment.

    Second, boundaries must also be included in boundary groups in 2012 and for site assignment, that boundary group must be enabled for site assignment.

    Last thing to note, don't use any boundary type except IP Address ranges: http://blog.configmgrftw.com/?p=343

  • If SCCM ad discovery manages to find its inside of the boundaries defined it will show with site code, if im not mistaken.

  • So then systems that do not have a site code listed are not in the boundaries, If I understand you right.
