Does anyone know if installing SCCM2007 and the site database on the same server affects SCCM Discovery?

It shouldn't, the main reason to separate the database and site server is to separate the workload. If you run lots of ad hoc database reports regarding the SMS inventory then it is probably a good idea to keep them separate.

Thanks.

I've just SCCM2007 installed in my site but I can't discover any resource despite enabling network, user, heartbeat, AD system discoveries.

I've now had to launch the SMS_NETWORK_DISCOVERY from ConfigMgr Service Manager & I can see these 2 devices in my log file - netdisc.log but the devices won't appear in my console!

I haven't installed SCCM in my lab yet but I did play with it at Microsoft Management Summit so I'll try to add some knowledge. The SCCM logs are a great way of putting together what the server is doing and where things are failing so become very familiar with how information flows into SMS and what logs are for which comonent. If the devices are in the netdisc.log then that is a good sign. Have you queried the database to see if there is any data in the discovery database table views? If there is then chances are there might be an issue with the collection evaluator.

The resources are now in the site database. But this is quite strange as the DDRs had been created more than 24 hours ago. The only change I made in the last 30 mins before I did a direct membership to a collection was to install my SLP (but this shouldn't really affect it, as the SLP only helps with the detection of MPs whenever the AD schema hasn't been extended).

I think the problem is with the collection evaluation as the default Collections aren't getting populated with the resources that have been discovered.
