Installing SCCM 2012 R2 Distribution Point in RODC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I'm new in SCCM 2012.

    May i know is it in best practice for me to install SCCM 2012 DP in existing server 2008 RODC? Will there be any impact to the RODC if IIS installed? Is there any article on this matter?

    I read somewhere that it is not recommended though the reason why is not elaborated.

    Any help will be very much appreciated :)

  • It's never a good a idea to place other roles on (RO)DCs. Placing a DP on it is supported though.

  • I always say  never put anything on a DC ,  leave the DP isolated. No print server,  DHCP,  etc.  I seen it all!

    that way if the DC goes down the DP still works,  or vice versa
