ConfigMgr hosted on Azure - Local DP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to find some resources on hosting ConfigMgr within Azure, and have some Distribution Points on the LAN.

    Is anybody able to point me in the right direction?

  • Not sure exactly what you are looking for as there's really nothing special about doing this. As long as you have connectivity (via a VPN to Azure or ExpressRoute) between the Dp and site server, connectivity between the clients and the client facing roles (MP, DP, SUP), and all of the other pre-reqs are met, this is exactly the same as setting up ConfigMgr in any other scenario. Of course, it's not support in 2012. It is in Current Branch though.

    Remember though that clients communicate with the MP role on a regular basis as well as the SUP so having these in Azure will possibly incur additional cost.
