After a Configuration Manager 2007 client is installed, it must be assigned to a site before it can be managed.

Before assigning clients to a site, ensure that one of the following conditions are true:

The exception to these requirements for site assignment is if you assign a client to an Internet-based site that does not manage clients on the intranet.
