Configuration Manager Site Assignment Flowchart
noteNote
If the Active Directory schema has not been extended for Configuration Manager 2007, site information required to complete client site assignment cannot be published to Active Directory Domain Services, and clients must have an alternative mechanism to complete site assignment.

Additionally, clients that are not in the same Active Directory forest as the site servers (such as workgroup clients or clients from a different Active Directory forest) are not be able to locate the site information they require from Active Directory Domain Services.

In either of these scenarios, a server locator point is required for clients to complete site assignment. For more information, see About Client Site Assignment in Configuration Manager.
