The Configuration Manager 2007 R3 client needs to know the boundaries for the site. Unless the site boundaries are specified, the client assumes that the computer running Configuration Manager 2007 R3 is in a remote site. Add a site boundary based on the IP subnet that WDG-MDT-01, WDG-REF-01, and WDG-CLI-01 use.

To configure the Configuration Manager 2007 R3 site boundaries

1.   Click Start, point to All Programs, and then point to Microsoft System Center. Point to Configuration Manager 2007, and then click ConfigMgr Console.

2.   In the Configuration Manager console navigation pane, go to Site Database/Site Management/NYC - New York City Site/Site Settings/Boundaries.

3.   In the Actions pane, click New Boundary.

4.   Complete the New Site Boundary dialog box using the information in Table 14, and then click OK.

Note   For this sample, the site boundary is specified by network address. However, you can also specify site boundaries using an AD DS site name or an IP address range.
