SMS2.0 SP2 Seconadry Site installs

Hi.  I'm installing 6 SMS secondary sites on BDC's on the domain.  Each secondary site has 3 or 4 subnet boundaries assigned to it.  However the clients are only being assigned if they are on the same subnet as the secondary server.  I have added the boundary addresses at the hierarchy level and included them in the network discovery subnets.  Several have been discovered but only a few assigned.

RE: SMS2.0 SP2 Seconadry Site installs


You have to be careful with Boundaries.  Many people become confused because the Subnet Mask is determined from the client computer.  Here's an example:

IP address for company XYZ = 10.34.x.x

Eventhough 10.34.x.x is a class "A" tcp/ip address, company XYZ utilizes a subnet mask.  

In this senerio, the SMS 2.0 boundaries for company XYZ can not simply be; If this was attempted, many client computers would be discovered but none would be assigned to the SMS site (unless they happened to be in the 10.34.0 subnet).  This is because with a subnet mask of hold the first three octets for the Network address.  Your Boundaries should involve every subnet address in the netork....for example,,,

The point is that the boundaries use the client IP subnet mask to determine if it should be assigned to the site or not.
