Create DP a local site and ship to remote site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Quick question:

    If I have eight remote sites that are branch DPs, and I'm shipping replacement devices (workstations) to each location, can I stand up the servers locally, create the DP in ConfigMgr, distribute the content (packages), and then ship the machine to the remote site? When it comes online at the remote location, will it work as required? I'm already accounting for putting the DPs in the correct boundaries and whatnot. These will be branch DPs.

    Seems like it should work fine but I wanted another set of eyes on it. Thanks.

  • You can do that as long as the name doesn't change.

    If they are branch then yes you can prestage them.  on the local machine you can copy the package files over and pre load them and then send them on the primary and it should check and see they are aloready prestaged and complete out.
