I am trying to find out whether the AD schema has been extended for SCCM. I can see objects in the Systems Management container one of which is for an SLP. Obviously the schema has been extended for a systems management product but I am looking to find out whether it has been extended for 2003 or SCCM.

I am trying to resolve an issue a secondary site (the first secondary) whereby I get an error trying to determine the site code.

Some of the errors I am getting on the client are

Unable to verify the sitecode 'ESG', AD schema is not extended or SLP is not present. Cannot continue site assignment.

LSVerifySiteVersion: Failed to get Site Version from AD and SLP

LSGetSiteVersionFromAD : Failed to retrieve version for the site 'ESG' (0x80004005)


I was led to believe that the schema extensions were put in place.....due to the above errors I am beginning to doubt!

(BTW, is there not a zone for SMS/SCCM on Experts Exchange?)

Here is the Microsoft TechNet article "How to Verify That Site Information Is Published to Active Directory Domain Services"

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb693614(printer).aspx 

This should give you the info on if the schema has been extended or not.

If the AD hasn't been extended then this link should help you out.

Hi

if you need to make sure the schema has been extended , you need open schema patition using ADSIEDIT.MSC and check the below attributes :

cn=MS-SMS-Site-Code
cn=mS-SMS-Assignment-Site-Code.
cn=MS-SMS-Site-Boundaries.
cn=MS-SMS-Roaming-Boundaries.
cn=MS-SMS-Default-MP.
n=mS-SMS-Device-Management-Point.
cn=MS-SMS-MP-Name.
cn=MS-SMS-MP-Address.
cn=mS-SMS-Health-State.
cn=mS-SMS-Source-Forest.
cn=MS-SMS-Ranged-IP-Low.
cn=mS-SMS-Version.
cn=mS-SMS-Capabilities.
------
and the below classes

cn=MS-SMS-Management-Point.
cn=MS-SMS-Server-Locator-Point.
cn=MS-SMS-Site.
cn=MS-SMS-Roaming-Boundary-Range.

for more details check my attached image

the link below only check if That Site Information Is Published to Active Directory Domain Services or not , this can be happend after you install SCCM and publish it in AD

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb693614.aspx

also you can know when the schema was extended as the attached image

More .........

if you found the Schema not extended you can use ExtADSch.exe to do it using the link below
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680608.aspx

then you have to Create the System Management Container in Active Directory Domain Services
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632591.aspx

Set Security on the System Management Container in Active Directory Domain Services
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb633169.aspx

and later  Publish Configuration Manager Site Information to Active Directory Domain Services
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680711.aspx

if you need to know you sms version , you need to valuse of mSSMSVersion attibute for MP after publish in AD as attached image

Good Luck
