DP to manage Azure VMs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I read - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2889321   I want to know why is there no support for scenarios like a distribution point in Azure to act as data point for Azure VMs. We will have expressroute connectivity from on-premise server to Azure but I am told that expressroute can be expensive due to data traffic limits. We plan to have some 300 VMs in Azure. The Azure cloud is planned to be connected via expressroute with on-premise SCCM 2012 R2 primary. Can i consider a single distribution point in Azure instead of building a whole standalone primary site?  What could be possible issue with it?  Thanks in advance.

  • You need to open a support case with Microsoft for questions like this although I doubt you get an answer beyond something like because that's what we chose.

    The next version of ConfigMgr is supposed to support most scenarios involving Azure IaaS hosted systems.

    You could consider a lot of things. Should this work? In general I don't see a reason why it wouldn't as long as the IP traffic is routed properly and there is no IP overlap.
