Default-First-Site-Name and SCCM Site Boundary

I've got a single site 2008 Domain and SCCM 2007 R2 installed.  I'm about to configure the site boundaries in SCCM, and would like to use an Active Directory site.  Since this is a vanilla, Windows Domain, in a single physical location, there is only the "Default-First-Site-Name" with no subnets configured.  We do use a number of subnets (10.1.0.0/16 to 10.15.00/16) on a fully switched network.

Will I need to explicitly configure the subnets in Active Directory Sites and Services if I use this as the basis of my SCCM Site Boundary?  Thanks.

Yes, you should do this as a part of your domain configuration anyway....the more systems MS release....(exchange 07, SCOM, SCCM) the more it is calling off AD backend setup.....get that right, and all else works smoothly...

Thanks Jay Jay.   In configuring the AD Site, should I include subnets that don't have Windows clients/hosts?  We have VLANs 10.2.0.0/16 through to 10.18.0.0/16 but only four of those VLANs have Windows hosts.  The rest contain Linux clients, OSX, Printers, security cameras and so on.

The idea of subnets is to control phsyical network structure in a logical view...it also controls replication, and authentication boundaries etc....so anything that authenticates against a DC should have subnet assigned to it....anything that doesnt, is irrelevant :)
