SCCM Site Assignment

Hello Experts,

I have 2 questions,

1.) I just installed a new installation of SCCM on a new server with a new database and a new site code. The problem I am having is that I can't get a client to automatically assign to the new site. I can manually assign it fine, but it won't go automatically.

So far, I have added the boundary by AD site, and removed it from the old server. I also removed the server locator point from the old server and deleted it from the system mangement container in AD.

I am trying to keep the old server running until I know everything is working on the new server.

2.) I also have 2 secondary site servers. Is there a way to migrate them to the new primary site server without reinstalling?

I'm sorry sorry if I have this in the wrong zone. I could not find one for SCCM.

Thank You.

1. Run AD discovery to apply the site assignment change.
2. Secondaries cannot change their parent.

After running the AD discovery it still does not pick up the site code automatically. For now, I just setup a group policy to change the site code until I can turn off the old server.

That is exactly the issue I was having. I had the accounts setup and the site code specified in the client push, but it was not enabled. I set it up that way because that was how the old server was setup. Shortly after enabling it, I started to see several machines start showing up as clients.
