My enterprise is currently undergoing a large SCCM 2012 migration, however, we still have SCCM 2007 site servers that are in production use. When I went to go check out my locationservices.log file on my Secondary Site server, it stated that an entirely new MP server was assigned rather than my SCCM 2007 Primary MP. I already notified the SCCM 2012 project team about this, but I wanted to ask if anyone here knows how to go about getting my Secondary Site server re-assigned back to its proper SCCM 2007 MP? I already uninstalled the SCCM 2012 client and reinstalled the 2007 SCCM client and removed and re-added the MP role on my Secondary Site server, but it still is being re-directed to use this new SCCM 2012 MP instead. I'm assuming what is going on is that Active Directory Domain Services are at play here or something. Anyway, if someone can provide some info, I would appreciate it. Thanks

You seem to have overlapping boundaries.

Check for boundaries in both SCCM 2007 and 2012 and see which ones overlap.

Remove the clashing ones after consideration. You can re add them.

Also, sccm 2012 can create them automatically so you may want to discuss this with sccm 2012 project team. They should have the timeframe etc for this.

After notifying the SCCM 2012 Project Team, I recieved an email back regarding the issue and someone had inadvertently set the "Use this boundary group for site assignment" check box when they were not supposed to since we still have SCCM 2007 sites in production.

By the way:

2012 clients can tell the difference between a 2007 and 2012 site, and will only communicate with a 2012 site.

2007 clients are unable to check the version of the site, and will communicate with either.
