Boundaries with AD Sites for SIte Assignment ??

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have a question about how to best implement boundaries for the purposes of Content Locaation and Site Assignment. We have 4 sites, say A,B,C & D.

Should I create 4 separate boundaries for A,B,C & D and then put them into one Boundary Group for Site Assignment?

 

Then create boundary groups using IP Address Ranges (Auto-discovered) for Content Location?

 

We only have the one primary site so I'm just confused about these boundary groups and am trying to prevent any overlaps. If I were to use the IP Addresses strictly, then I would end up with boundary groups with overlapping boundaries (using same IP address ranges) <- hope that makes sense.

 

I've read up on a few blogs including http://myitforum.com/myitforumwp/2012/08/02/secondary-sites-and-boundary-groups/ and http://blogs.technet.com/b/elie/archive/2012/05/14/system-center-2012-configuration-manager-part3-boundaries-and-boundary-groups.aspx but I still don't quite understand.

 

Thanks Guys!

Best way is to create Active Directory Forest assignment , it will create Site boundaries and IP boundaries, then assign the needed boundaries to your site

But is it necessarily 4 different AD? Maybe site A,B,C,D are in the same AD/Forest.

Yes, it's sites A,B,C & D are in the same AD/Forest.

 

AmrelMahdy, excuse my ignorance but how/where do you create AD forest Assigment?

 

Thanks,

Jon

Thanks kingen,

 

I don't know how I missed checking that box. I've now corrected it and have run a 'discover' and it's found all the AD site boundaries.

 

So back to my original question.. Do you only use the AD site boundaries for client site assignment only and IP boundaries for content location only?

 

Thanks again,

In your case if you have 1 Primarysite and 4 DP for packages, i would run the Forest Discovery, it will create a boundary, enable it for site assigment. Then i whould create 4 different boundaries yes based on IP ranges, it will actually overlap the first one that Forest discovery creates, and assign them to my DP's only for content location described in the article you mentioned.

Another question,

 

When creating a boundary group, in the general tab, under Boundaries would you use the IP Address range boundaries here or the AD Site Boundaries for Content Location and site assignment?
