When do we need a local Distribution Point? In SCCM 2012?

  Below are the three key points to consider a local distribution Point’s

  • BITS not enough to control the WAN traffic
  • Multicast for Operating System Deployment
  • To stream APP-V Applications

Ok..  Now when we do not need a local Distribution points in SCCM 2012? Below are the key considerations…

  • Clients are well managed with-in BITIS provided control for WAN traffic
  • If BranchCache deployed(below points are pre-requirements for BranchCache)
    • DP’s on 2008 R2
    • Vista Sp2 with KB960568 and above OS’s(windows7 & 8)

Note:- Distribution Point role can be enabled on Client OS or Server OS.
Note:- Branch Distrubution Point Role is removed in SCCM 2012.
