Package Distribution behavior in Remote DP and PeerCache Sources. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We are having one Primary SCCM CB 1806 Server and 20 Remote DPs and 50 Peer Cache Sources.  

    • Software Update / Software Deployment Package created in Primary Site Server and Distributed to Remote DP.                After Successful Package Distribution to Remote DPs, If we delete Package source from Primary Server will it affects remote DP location Clients to download the package file or It will download without any problem from Remote DP ( Since Packages are already distributed to Remote DPs) ? Please someone clarify on this. 
    • What is the recommended Network Bandwidth to Configure and Manage New Remote DP and PeerCache Sources.

  • You should never delete the source content. There won't be an immediate impact, but it may/will cause problems in the future.

    There is no recommended bandwidth as there are multiple subjective variables involved some of which are non-technical in nature including client count and network topology.

  • Hello, 
     
    Thanks for posting in TechNet.
     
    1> What is deleted, the source file or folder? If the files in the source location are deleted, clients still could download original package until package is updated manually or automatically, then corresponding files would be deleted from DP as well. If the whole source folder is deleted, it would cause content status marked as failed after being updated, and package would be unavailable on the DP.
     
    2> There is no best practice as mentioned by Jason, and it all depends on your actual situation and requirement. For DP, we could set the Schedule and Rate Limits in DP Properties. For PeerCache Sources, keep in mind that their download behavior is just like other clients and they only download the content when there is a deployment with it.
     
    Hope my answer could help you and look forward to your feedback.
     
    Best Regards,
