SCCM System Management container is empty

Installed and configured SCCM 2012 R2 and was able to discover AD forest, groups, etc. no problem there.
However, the System Management container is empty.
I have given SCCM server full access to the container and to all subfolders.
Schema was extended successfully prior to SCCM installation.

Not sure why the System Management container isn't being populated by objects as it should be.
Please help...

Try using the delegate permissions wizard. Remove the existing permissions first.


Then, restart SMS EXEC or the site server.


hi Thanks for your response.
I just did what you suggested. Removed the original permissions and set it again using delegation.
Re-started the site server. And I still don't see the objects. Does it take sometime to populate?
I did run ad sync....but it is still empty.

Please upload hman.log and sitecomp.log
well....after spending hours and days on this issue....it now sees the site, and all publishing status are successful.
I ended up removing the sccm server from the domain, deleted the computer AD account,  added the server to the domain, setup all the SQL permissions,deleted the System Management container, re-created it, and gave the SCCM server full control to the container....now it sees the site....

Thank you for trying to help me with this.
