Configure sites and hierarchies for System Center Configuration Manager


Aplica-se A: System Center Configuration Manager (current branch)

After you install your first O System Center Configuration Manager site or add additional sites to your hierarchy, use the following checklist to ensure you consider the most common configurations that affect both sites and hierarchies.

In most deployments you will not need to configure the following options in any specific order:

  • Some options build upon each other, such Active Directory Forest Discovery, boundaries, and boundary groups.

  • Several configurations have default values you can use without configuration changes, at least temporarily.

  • Other configurations, like boundary groups and distribution point groups, require you to configure them before you can use them.

Configure role-based administrationRole-based administration is how you to segregate administrative assignments to control which administrative users can view and manage different objects and data in your Configuration Manager environment.

Configurations for role-based administration are shared with all sites in a hierarchy.
See Configure role-based administration for System Center Configuration Manager
Publish site data to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)When you publish site data to AD DS, you make it easy for clients to find services and make efficient use of site resources.

You must first Extend the Active Directory schema for System Center Configuration Manager, and then each site must be configured to Publish site data for System Center Configuration Manager individually.
Configure a service connection pointAt the top-tier site of your hierarchy you should plan to install and configure the service connection point. For information, see About the service connection point in System Center Configuration Manager.
Add site system rolesInstall one or more additional site system roles to individual sites. See Add site system roles for System Center Configuration Manager
Configure site boundaries and boundary groupsSpecify boundaries that define network locations on your intranet that can contain devices that you want to manage, and then configure boundary groups so that clients at those network locations can find Gestor de configuração services resources. See Define site boundaries and boundary groups for System Center Configuration Manager
Configure distribution point groupsConfigure logical groups of distribution points to make managing deployments easier. See Manage distribution point groups in Install and configure distribution points for System Center Configuration Manager.
Run DiscoveryRun discovery to find resources on your network including network infrastructure, devices, and users.

See Run discovery for System Center Configuration Manager
Add redundancy and capacity for those who manage your infrastructureYou can install additional SMS Providers and Gestor de configuração consoles to expand capacity for administrators to manage your infrastructure:

 Install additional SMS Providers to provide redundancy for contact points to administer your site and hierarchy. See Manage the SMS Provider in Modify your System Center Configuration Manager infrastructure

 Install additional Configuration Manager consoles to provide access to additional administrative users at the same time. See Install Configuration Manager consoles
Configure site componentsYou can configure site components at each site to modify the behavior of site system roles and site status reporting. See Site components for System Center Configuration Manager
Create custom collectionsUsing information that is discovered about devices and users, create custom collections of objects to simplify future management tasks. See How to create collections in System Center Configuration Manager
Configure settings to manage high-risk deploymentsConfigure settings at a site that will warn administrative users when they create a high-risk task sequence deployment. See Settings to manage high-risk deployments for System Center Configuration Manager
Configure database replicas for management pointsConfigure a database replica to reduce the CPU load placed on the site database server by management points as they service requests from clients. See Database replicas for management points for System Center Configuration Manager
Configure a SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Group to host the site databaseBeginning with version 1602, you can configure availability groups as a high-availability and disaster-recovery solution for hosting the site database at primary sites and the central administration site. See SQL Server AlwaysOn for a highly available site database for System Center Configuration Manager
