I am trying to install SCCM2007 over an existing SMS2003 site wiht a new site name and replace it. About 30 clients installed, while the rest refuse to install, a handfull the site code is lised but the client status is not installed. I also have a flood of errors in SMS_MP_Control_Manager and ~40 warnings under SMS_Inventory_Data_Loader. This is a clean installation and I am trying to get up and running. Can anyone help? Mainly want to use this for software inventory and remote tools, not so much deployment.

you havent really given us much info there.
I think what your saying is that you've done a side by side deployment? (as you cant "install over the top with a new site code"). Have you updated your boundaries correctly and when pushing the SCCM client, are you specifying to always install or upgrade ?

It is a side by side deployment, the old 2000/2003 site code was "SMS" the new is "UFS"

ok, so your site boundaries basically assist clients with finding what site they are assigned to. so if you create a SCCM bounday specifying to use the "Head office" AD site, any client that is a member of the "head office" AD site, will fall into that SCCM boundary, and therefore be managed by the associated SCCM site.
So you must remove the boundaries from your old sccm server and create them on your new sccm server.
Once that is done, clients can then find the server they are meant to report to.

On the old sms machine, i stopped the sms executive service, because it was never configured correctly and did a force upgrade/install for the clients

I deleted and re added site boundaries and after a couple days of neglecting it had installed the client across my network. I guess its extremely delayed due to BITS.
