I am attemtping to get SCCM 2007 running on our domain but continue to get the error "Automatic site code discovery was unsuccessful" when manaully trying to set the site code since it did not on the client push.
This is a new install of SCCM, no upgrades from earlier versions and we are at svcpck1.
The install seemed to go smooth.
This is a single domain.
I have all systems populated as well as all users.
I am using active directory and have updated the schema and based on research all the items are present in AD.
SMS-MP-NWC-PHANTOM      mSSMSManagementPoint            
SMS-NWC-2304262662-2304262662      mSSMSRoamingBoundaryRange            
SMS-NWC-2304263680-2304278526      mSSMSRoamingBoundaryRange            
SMS-Site-NWC      mSSMSSite
I have boundaries currently set to our default first site.
Have also tried IP range. (No luck)
Their was NO SMS service account created for the SCCM server in the domain.
(assumed SMS&_PHANTOM)
The sitecomp.log states that my server,phantom, is the default management point.
I have not setup SLP in WINS because of using AD.
When manaually trying to assign the site code I have tried putting in our dns suffix for the assignment below section but it does not help.
I have tried finding the DCOM entry for client on the SCCM server to change the rights on it mentioned in several other threads but that entry does not exist. (Can't find that thread again to be more specififc).
Out of these logs:

sitecomp.log
clientlocations.log
locationservice.log
ClientIDManagerStartup.log

Only the sitecomp.log exists.
Do I need the SMS&_PHANTOM account, if so can I just create it and the system will use it?
Should I add this account to the local admin group of each client?
Do I need to add this account to the AD items created when extending the schema?


Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Did you extend the AD Schema? Even if you did when upgrading/Installing you must hace Schema Master rights for it to work properly.

Here's a link that might help.

Yes tha active directory schema was updated succesfully as mentioned above.
While the AD update was succesfull I did not log into the server and install CM as the SMS admin.
Mainly for the reason that it did not create and SMS admin.
Not sure what else that article does to help me based on the error I get.

you must have a slp and choose not to use wins.

Do I need the SMS&_PHANTOM account, if so can I just create it and the system will use it?
YES.
Should I add this account to the local admin group of each client?
Yes or you could use the machine account.
Do I need to add this account to the AD items created when extending the schema?
No but the SCCM machine needs to have full rights to the system container and all object underneath.
What did the log file say when you extended the schema? It will be in the root of c:

This solution gave me clues to look for things I had not done like installing the necessary roles.
