Q. I'm creating a PC image that will contain the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Advanced Client. How can I ensure that SMS site assignment occurs dynamically when the imaged machine starts?

A. The best way to accomplish this is to install the client without configuring site assignment--that is, you should make sure that the SMSSITECODE=auto switch is set. Before the PC is imaged, run the CCMDelCert command on the system that's being imaged to remove machine-specific SMS information. Doing so ensures that every new image generates a brand-new client certificate the first time the imaged system is started.
