After you install a Configuration Manager site, you might need to customize several features and configurations for use by your organization. Use this topic to help you configure settings that are used at individual sites and by the hierarchy.
In most situations you will not need to configure the following options in any specific order. However, some build upon each other, such as boundaries and boundary groups.
Several of these configurations have default values you can use without configuration changes, at least temporarily. Others, such as boundary groups and distribution point groups, require you to configure them before you can use them.
Plan to review these configurations over the lifecycle of your Configuration Manager deployment and to adjust them to meet changing business requirements or evolving network configurations.
Use the information in the following sections of this topic to help you manage these configurations:
