SCCM 2007 : Changing your name/description of your secondary sites

February 13, 2009 at 10:27 am in AdminUi, ConfigMgr, ConfigMgr 2007, sccm, SCCM 2007 by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Today I ran into a weird customer question.They wanted to change the description on their secondary sites.

After some investigation I found a way of doing this without having to reinstall the entire secondary sites.

To do this , you must : 

  1. Stop the SMS executive service.
  2. Open the C:\Program Files\SCCM\Inboxes\SiteCtrl.Box\sitectrl.cto file.
  3. At the top of the file , you find your sitecode and below that you’ll find the site desciption.
  4. Change the name and save the file.
  5. Restart the SMS Exec service.
  6. The site name/Description has changed.

However , this method is NOT supported by Microsoft !
