SCCM 2007: Clients and boundaries
I have a primary site with 2 child sites. I created restricted boundaries for each site; however, when I review the clients from all of the 3 sites, they are all reporting to the primary site. I checked the boundaries and it the boundary do appear to be setup properly. Addresses and Senders do appear to be setup correct as well. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks

two child sites as in secondary sites? Then that's by design as clients can only be assigned to a primary site.Kent Agerlund | My blogs: http://blog.coretech.dk/author/kea/ and http://scug.dk/ | Twitter @Agerlund | Linkedin: /kentagerlund

Thanks for the response. Ok, I might have this wrong then. I setup the child sites to keep traffic down to a minimum. I was trying to get each site's clients to report to thier local SCCM server (DP) to get updates, software, etc... I am looking to get the clients to report to this local SCCM server and for the SCCM server to report to the Primary server.

child sites mean ? secondry site or child primary sites if it is the enviroment with one primary site with 2 seconday sites then as soon as u install clients the clients changes its site code to the primary site code. and if you have 3 sites like one central and 2 primary sites with seperate databases with each site then all clients are assiged to there respected sites. let us know if u need further clarification on it.Syed Kasif | My blogs: http://syedtechblog.wordpress.com | Linkedin: /syedkashif

I believe its a secondary site with its own site code. I have the primary site and under the primary I have the 2 other sites (which I beleive is secondary). I have only the one SQL database. So based on the above, how can I make sure the secondary site clients are pulling down updates and other packages from their local SCCM server? Also, If the secondary sites have their own site code, why doesn't the clients in that child site report to the local SCCM server with its site code?

1) You can check the locationservices.log on one of the client (or the clientlocaiton.log) To verify that it's using the local ressources 2) That's the way it is :-)Kent Agerlund | My blogs: http://blog.coretech.dk/author/kea/ and http://scug.dk/ | Twitter @Agerlund | Linkedin: /kentagerlund

as kent already mentioned that it is by design, client always assigned Site code of primary site as soon as agent installed on to it. several ways to verify updates are received by clients there are numurous builtin reports that can help you to get the result of successful deployment one is compliance 1 overall compliance compliance 2 specific software updates these are all rely on software update catagory one more state 1 enforcement state for a deployment there are arounds 15-20 reports that are in software update catagory which will greatly help you to find out a successful deployment of an update. to make traffic down you can assiged a SUP and DP and proxy MP role at each secondary site so the clients get the content from there local DP and can contact to there local management point about site code and about site code assignment http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb681005.aspx Syed Kasif | My blogs: http://syedtechblog.wordpress.com | Linkedin: /syedkashif
