if we have supernet so should i convert to IP Address range first


Hi Team,

I am preparing new environment of SCCM and networking team provided me below IP Address range and it looks supernet . Should i create IP address range Boundaries first? if i entered supernet in SCCM boundaries IP Address range so it break anything.

Networking Team provided

    You can manually create individual boundaries. However, direct entry of a supernet as a boundary is not supported . Instead, use the IP address range in boundary type. I think you are right in track.


    Yes that is correct supernet is not supported

    But the ip Range you have given above is different from the first one given when you started the question.


      my apology sir.

      it means I am OK to create IP address range for below IP Address address.

      IP Address Range

      Earlier, I was thinking i should enter below Ip adders which given by networking team and believe its no support by SCCM

      Type :: IP Address Range
      Starting IP Address :
      Ending Ip address :

      but i now understand I should enter all IP Address Range


    I don’t know much about supernet …. so I can’t answer

    But if you can confirm the IP range of means 254 ips or devices then it’s good to go from SCCM side.

    1. Create boundaries with this IP range
    2. Create Boundary groups with those Boundaries https://www.anoopcnair.com/create-boundary-groups-in-configmgrsccm-boundar/

      Thanks Sir,
      i want to know if i start creating IP Address range Boundaries as i believe supernet not support by SCCM.


      ach boundary represents a network location in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, and it is available from every site in your hierarchy. A boundary does not enable you to manage clients at the network location. To manage a client, the boundary must be a member of a boundary group.

      Configuration Manager does not support the direct entry of a supernet as a boundary. Instead, use the IP address range boundary type. When Active Directory Forest Discovery identifies a supernet that is assigned to an Active Directory site, Configuration Manager converts the supernet into an IP address range boundary. For more information about Active Directory Forest Discovery, see the About Active Directory Forest Discovery section in the Planning for Discovery in Configuration Manager topic.
