I am designing SCCM 2007 in Single Forest (Empty Domain) with Multi-domain with the help of Adaptiva OneSite which eliminates need of a lot of SCCM requirements for such a design.

Customer wants a Primary site in a child domain.
Schema for this domain has been extended.
All domains in the forest have two way trust.

Question:
1) Do I need to extend schema at the top level (Empty domain) as well?
or this will work because of the two-way trusts
2) What effect will this have on the MP traffic?

Thanks

Thanks

If you have a single forest with multiple domains you can manage all domains simply by extending the AD schema. If you have clients in untrusted domains or in another forest then you can use a Server Locator Point so the clients will find their management point regardless of what domain they are in if they are in a domain at all.

 

SCCM AD System Discovery only supports discovering systems in trusted domains to the domain it is installed in. If you want to discover systems in untrusted domains or  untrusted forests you would have to use network discovery or Enhanced System Discovery 2007 from my site.

Thanks, I am aware of this but may be my question was not clear enough    

The question is -
if The schema is extended only in the child domain where SCCM server will be located and not at the root of the domain.
a) will this work as is? Because of the trust between the domains?
or
b) Will have to extend the schema at the root level, meaning creating Systems Management Container there and giving SCCM Server from child domain full permission to it and Child objects ?

Thanks
