Configuring SMS Site Settings

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

Systems Management Server (SMS) is highly configurable, yet very little configuration needs to be performed to use the product. When you do need to perform configuration tasks, you perform them in the SMS Administrator console, under Site Settings.

Note Each SMS site is configured individually (child sites do not inherit the properties of their parent sites).

Mandatory Configuration

You must configure the following items before using SMS:

Addresses 

You must create addresses for each additional site that a site will communicate with. If you have only one site, no addresses are needed.

Senders 

You must create senders for each connectivity system that a site uses to communicate with other sites. If you have only one site, no senders are needed.

Discovery Methods 

Before SMS can manage resources, it must find them. There are several resource discovery methods. You must enable the methods you want to use in each site.

Client Installation Methods 

Client installation is the act of turning discovered site resources into SMS clients. You must choose which client installation methods to enable.

Client Agents 

Client agents determine whether clients can be controlled remotely, receive advertised programs, have their software usage metered, and provide hardware and software inventory. You must choose which client agents to enable.

Optional Configuration

Although you do not need to configure the following items before you use SMS (they are set to usable defaults), you might want to modify their default settings for specific purposes:

Component Configuration 

You can customize the behavior of SMS components that manage data processing and storage, software distribution, software metering, status reporting, NetWare accounts, and intersite communication functions.

Connection Accounts 

To gain access to the various resources that SMS manages, SMS can use accounts on clients and servers in a site. By default, only the minimum necessary accounts are created during Setup, most notably the SMS Service accounts. SMS will function with just these accounts, but they are highly privileged and often have more privileges than they need to perform certain tasks. Therefore, SMS can use several optional accounts to perform specific tasks that need fewer privileges. You can strengthen site security by minimizing the propagation of highly privileged accounts.

Site Systems 

By default, all SMS components run on the site server (the server on which SMS is installed). To lighten the load of the site server, other systems in the site can take over some of the site server's duties.

Status Filter Rules 

The SMS status filter determines which messages are processed, stored locally, and/or replicated to the parent site. The SMS status filter comprises a set of status filter rules that you can configure.

Status Summarizers 

Status summarizers provide a real-time summary of various status message categories. You can change the thresholds that, when exceeded, cause the status of a component or site to change to Warning or Critical.

Database Maintenance 

You can perform database maintenance tasks to keep your SQL Server databases running efficiently.

About Site Hierarchies

Systems Management Server sites are typically arranged in hierarchies. The site at the top of a hierarchy is called the central site. Relative positions within a hierarchy are denoted by the terms parent site and child site, as shown in this diagram.

When SMS is installed, a primary site is a stand-alone site; it has neither parent sites nor child sites. The site can remain a stand-alone site, or you can attach it to other sites to build a hierarchy.

Building a hierarchy involves choosing a primary site to serve as the central site, and then making the central site be the parent to other primary sites. You can continue attaching primary sites, installing secondary sites, or both, until you have created the hierarchy you want. You can reconfigure a hierarchy by changing a site's parent.

Even when sites are connected in a hierarchy, each site is complete in its own right. If a site loses its connection to other sites, it continues to collect inventory information, distribute software, and run scheduled instructions. When the hierarchy is restored, the site synchronizes its status and data with that of the other sites in the hierarchy.

Configuring Site Communications

A site must be able to communicate with its parent site, all of its child sites, and all sites in which it performs remote control. For sites to communicate, they must have a connectivity system (LAN protocols, RAS, or SNA Server) installed and configured (according to the connectivity system's product documentation) on all site servers in the SMS system. Then, for each site in the SMS system, you must perform the following tasks:

  1. Create addresses. Senders need addresses to destination sites in order to communicate with them, and each type of sender needs its corresponding type of address. For example, for the current site to communicate with site ABC using a Standard Sender and an ISDN RAS Sender, the current site needs a Standard Sender address for site ABC and an ISDN RAS Sender address for site ABC.

  2. Prepare servers for senders. Before senders are created on site systems, the site systems must be correctly configured.

  3. Create senders. For each type of address you create, you must create the same type of sender.

By default, all addresses can be used all the time for data of all priority levels. However, you can set schedules for addresses to determine when certain priorities of data are sent.

By default, the transfer rate to an address is unlimited at all times. However, you can limit how much connection bandwidth is used at different times of day by setting maximum data transfer rates for addresses.

SMS Accounts Configuration Overview

Change from SMS 1. x Previous versions of Systems Management Server (SMS) used only two accounts: the SQL Server account for access to the SMS site database (a SQL Server database), and the SMS Service account for everything else. SMS version 2.0 uses many more accounts, for supporting NetWare, for new features such as logon points and CAPs, and for improved security.

SMS can use several accounts to gain access to client and server computers, but the mandatory accounts are either specified during SMS Setup, or you specify them when configuring the features that rely on them.

Optional accounts are used for improving security. The SMS Service account is a highly privileged account that you might not want to propagate throughout your environment. Using the optional, lesser privileged accounts keeps the use of the SMS Service account at a minimum. However, if this security issue is not important to you in your environment, you need not create these accounts; SMS will work without them.

SMS Accounts

The following table lists the accounts used by SMS.

Create a Trusted Domain SMS Service Account in a Windows NT Domain

Within a site, if you set up trust relationships between Windows NT domains, you must:

  • Set up one SMS Service account in one master Windows NT domain in the site, and have other Windows NT domains use this account. Do not set up other SMS Service accounts in the other Windows NT domains.

  • Make sure that all Windows NT domains in the site trust the master Windows NT domain (which contains the SMS Service account).

  • Make sure that the SMS Service account in the master Windows NT domain is a member of the Domain Admins group (or, for a greater level of security, a member of the local Administrators group in all Windows NT domains at the site), and that it has Log on as a service rights in all Windows NT domains at the site.

For more information about Windows NT domains, user accounts, and network security, see your Windows NT product documentation.

    Caution Make sure that the SMS Service account password is different than the account name, because Windows NT and NetWare servers can be configured to prohibit accounts with passwords that are the same as the account name. 

  2. Add the SMS Service account to the Domain Admins global group.

Site Systems Configuration Overview

Site systems are Windows NT Server computers, Windows NT shares, NetWare bindery servers, or NDS volumes that provide Systems Management Server (SMS) functionality to your site. Each site system plays one or more roles in supporting an SMS site. Some site system roles can be assigned to site systems within the site by configuring the site system, while others are automatically assigned by the system. A third class of site system roles is informal and not recognized by the system.

Roles that you can assign to site systems from Site Systems in the SMS Administrator console include:

  • CAP (can be assigned to any server within the site; NetWare clients must have NetWare CAPs)

  • Distribution point (can be assigned to any server within the site; NetWare clients must have NetWare distribution points)

  • Software metering server (can be assigned to any Windows NT server within the site)

Besides the system roles that you can assign in Site Systems, there are other site system roles that are automatically assigned:

  • Site server (automatically assigned to all site servers during installation)

  • Site database server (automatically assigned to the server in the site that hosts the SQL Server database being used by SMS)

  • Logon point (automatically assigned to any Windows NT domain controller within the site)

  • Component server (automatically assigned to all servers with any Windows NT service that is part of SMS, which includes site servers, site database servers, CAPs, distribution points, and logon points)

These roles are recognized by the SMS system and appear as entries in the Roles column of Site Systems. In addition, there are other less formal roles that exist in the SMS site hierarchy but are not recognized by the system:

  • Software metering database server (automatically assigned to the Windows NT server that hosts the software metering database)

  • SMS Provider (automatically assigned to any site system that contains the SMS Provider)

In the SMS Administrator console, information in Site Systems enables you to identify computer systems that are already acting as site systems and performing roles in supporting an SMS site. You can also add new site systems and have them act as distribution points, client access points, and software metering servers.

Valid computer systems or subsystems for use as site systems include Windows NT Server computers, Windows NT computer shares, NetWare NDS volumes, and NetWare bindery volumes. NetWare NDS volumes and NetWare bindery volumes are supported only on Intel systems, not on RISC-based systems, and they cannot be assigned as software metering servers because software metering is not supported for NetWare.

For information about SMS 2.0 features that are supported on a Windows NT Terminal Server, see the SMS 2.0 release notes.

Note If you want to assign a CAP, distribution point, or logon point role to a Windows NT server in another domain, you must either create a trust relationship between the site server's domain and the remote domain, or you must create a client connection account in the remote domain and then specify the new SMS client network connection account in the SMS Administrator console.

Client Agents Configuration Overview

As Systems Management Server (SMS) finds resources and assigns them to sites for management, you can configure client agents to run on these resources. Client agents determine whether clients can be controlled remotely, receive advertised programs, meter software use, report hardware and software inventory, and translate Windows NT events to SNMP traps. Located in the SMS Administrator console tree, Client Agents enables you to configure which SMS client agents are installed on clients and how these agents are configured and maintained.

Note For information about SMS 2.0 features that are supported on a Windows NT Terminal Server, see the SMS 2.0 release notes.

Discovery Methods Configuration Overview

Before Systems Management Server (SMS) can manage a site, SMS site databases must be populated with resources and knowledge of your network. In SMS, resources are divided into g. SMS provides the following discovery methods. If the site was installed using Express Setup, these discovery methods are enabled by default (except Network Discovery). If Custom Setup was used, none are enabled by default.

Network Discovery

Finds system-class resources and, optionally, the operating systems that the resources run.

Windows Networking Logon Discovery

Finds system-class resources that run Microsoft Windows-based operating systems when a user logs on to an SMS logon point.

Heartbeat Discovery

Periodically updates the SMS site database with fresh discovery data from resources discovered with the Windows Networking Logon Discovery method.

NetWare NDS Logon Discovery

Finds system-class resources on a NetWare NDS system when users log on to logon points.

NetWare Bindery Logon Discovery

Finds system-class resources on a NetWare Bindery system when users log on to logon points.

Site System Discovery for Windows NT Server

Finds site systems that run Windows NT Server and automatically makes them SMS clients.

Site System Discovery for NetWare Bindery

Finds site systems that run NetWare bindery and automatically makes them SMS clients.

Windows NT User Account Discovery

Finds Windows domain user accounts.

Windows NT User Group Discovery

Finds Windows domain user groups.

  2. Right-click Network Discovery, and then click Properties.

    In the Network Discovery Properties dialog box, complete the settings in the following tabs:

    • Enable and specify the type of Network Discovery in the General tab.

    • Specify community names and the number of router hops that Network Discovery should make in the SNMP tab. If you are unsure about how many router hops to specify, select a small number (you can increase it later). For more information, see the example.

    • Specify when Network Discovery should run in the Schedule tab. Generally, Network Discovery generates large amounts of network traffic, so it is best to run it when you anticipate your network being lightly loaded.

    In addition to searching the local domain, local subnet, and any other subnets found within the number of router hops specified, Network Discovery can search:

    • Subnets that you specify on the Subnets tab.

    • Domains that you specify on the Domains tab.

    By default, Network Discovery gets information from the SNMP devices in the local subnet and any other subnets found within the number of router hops specified, and from the Microsoft DHCP server (if any) used by the server running Network Discovery. Network Discovery can also get network information from:

    • SNMP devices that you specify on the SNMP Devices tab.

    • Microsoft DHCP servers that you specify on the DHCP tab.

    Note If the server that is running Network Discovery is using a static IP address, rather than leasing one from a DHCP server, then Network Discovery will not communicate with any DHCP servers unless you specify them on the DHCP tab of the Network Discovery Properties dialog box.

About Network Discovery 

Network Discovery Overview 

Which Subnets Are Searched?

A subnet listed in the Subnets tab of the Network Discovery dialog box might not be searched during a Network Discovery, even if the subnet is valid. To be searched, a subnet must be in scope. To ensure that a subnet is in scope, you must specify all subnets leading to it from the server running Network Discovery, or the subnet must be within the number of router hops specified in the SNMP tab. Consider the following network:

Cc723612.router(en-us,TechNet.10).gif

In a Network Discovery run from Server 1, subnets D and E will be searched only if Subnets A and C are specified in the discovery. If you specify Subnet A, Router 2 is reached, and Router 2 knows about subnet C. If you specify subnet C, Router 3 is reached, and Router 3 knows about Subnets D and E.

Subnets D and E can also be reached from Server 1 if at least two router hops are specified in the SNMP tab.

Resources on an out-of-scope subnet can be found, but only in these two cases:

  • The subnet is known to an in-scope Microsoft DHCP server. In such a case, the subnet's resources are found by reading the information about the DHCP server. The DHCP server will likely provide the computer name and address of the resources that have leased an IP address from the DHCP server.

  • An in-scope router or some other device with a good source of SNMP information is connected to the out-of-scope subnet. (This will also find other routers, which might be useful in future network discoveries as a source of SNMP information.)

Client Installation Configuration Overview

Client installation is the act of turning site resources into Systems Management Server (SMS) clients. SMS provides the following client installation methods:

Logon client installation

SMS commands are inserted in the logon scripts of SMS logon points. When a resource logs on to the logon point, the resource runs the logon script, turning the resource into a client. Use this installation method for all clients that participate in a resource domain environment, except as noted in the next two sections.Note Logon points are supported on NTFS partitions only, not FAT.

Windows NT remote client installation

This installation method turns all servers that run Windows NT Server and are domain members into SMS clients. Either Resource Discovery or Network Discovery can initiate this method. Use this installation method for Windows NT resources that lack an account that is a member of the local Administrator group.

Manual client installation

A user on a resource runs the SMSman.exe file, turning the resource into a client. Use this installation method for any of the following:

  • Clients that do not participate in a resource domain environment.

  • Clients that have a subnet outside of a site's boundary.

Note Clients are assigned to sites based on the subnets the clients are in. Each site claims certain subnets as its own; these are specified in the Boundaries tab of the Site Properties dialog box.

Status Configuration Overview

Most Systems Management Server (SMS) components produce status messages. The SMS status system need not be configured to work; its default settings are reasonable for most environments. However, you can configure three aspects of the SMS status system:

Status reporting

You can configure which status messages are generated by specifying the types and/or severities of messages to be generated. For example, you could suppress all informational milestone status messages.

Status filter rules

You can configure status filter rules to specify what happens to various messages after they are generated. You can filter messages based on their properties, and you can specify what actions are taken when messages have the properties you specify. For example, you could specify that all errors from Inventory Processor are to be forwarded to the parent site and written to the Windows NT Event Log.

Status summarizers

You can configure status summarizers. Status summarizers use status messages and other data in the SMS site database to generate visual summaries of problems in particular areas. For example, if you want information about the status of components at child sites, you can configure the Component Status Summarizers on child sites to replicate their messages to their parent site.

Security Configuration Overview

Systems Management Server (SMS) grants access to its functionality based on security rights. Configuring SMS security means creating various security rights so that SMS administrators have access to certain functionality and data.

A security right has three parts:

A user or user group

The Windows NT user name or group name to which the security right applies, such as Chris Smith, Administrator, or Power Users. (See About User and User Group Permissions for information about assigning permissions to users and user groups.)

A permission  

The type of action that is permitted, such as Read, Create, or Delete.

A security object  

The entity on which the permission acts. Security objects can be either a class (such as all collections), or an instance (such as a particular collection).

Not all permissions apply to all security objects. (See About Permissions and Security Objects for the complete list of permissions and the security objects they apply to.)

SMS administrators who do not have permissions for all security objects in the SMS Administrator console will only see those security objects for which they have permissions.
