I am testing the SMS server on win2k server. I'd like to use it for patch distribution. But after I install it successfully, I cannot see any computers except the SMS server itself.
BTW: the network discovery was enabled.
Anyone suggestions?

well I've learned that you can't rely on network discovery. There are some issues with it.
If you like to have sms installed on clients then check:
 - site boundaries
 - enable the Client Agents you need (Rc, Inventory)
 - enable "networking logon Client installation"
 - enable "networking logon discovery"

After SMS has done all the changes i.e. updated the logon points, log into a test client and check if "smsls" runs
