How Many clients are supported BY SCCM 2012 Secondary Site


  • As per Microsoft each secondary site can support communication upto 5000 clients. So does it mean that MP on secondary site can support 5000 client. As per books like SCCM 2012 unleashed MP on secondary site can support only 2500 clients. i have a remote site with 4000 clients i don't want to place a primary site, how can i go with secondary site. because the statements seems to be confusing to me.

    Pls suggest.

  • A secondary can handle up to 5k clients. Microsoft changed those numbers from 2.5k to 5k just before the RTM release so some of those changes did not make it into the book because it was too late.

  • Note that the 5,000 number is just a guideline and that TechNet specifically says that with better hardware a secondary site can support more clients.
