SCCM 2012 Pull DIstribution Design RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All ,

    I have query on SCCM 2012 Pull Distribution Design where I couldnt find any specific information and hopefully i can get answer from here : 

    In our Design , we propose to have 3 tier of DP Setup 

    Level 1 Standard DP HQ - Windows Server 2012 + SCCM 2012 R2 DP

    Level 2 Province DP - Windows 7 32 bits + SCCM Pull DP

    Level 3 City and Branch DP - Windows 7 32 bits + SCCM PULL DP

    Question : 

    1. Can we Configure SCCM PULL DP from Level 3 to Grab the COntent from another PULL DP from Level 2 ? 

    2. Level 2 - Windows 7 32bits + SCCM Standard DP only. 

    Will Windows 7 32bits Distribution Point Setup able to perform PULL Distribtion Point Function in Level 3 if we plan to perform this setup ?

  • I just checked with the product group and you can actually daisy chain Pull DPs so that one Pull DP pulls from another. Architecture does not matter as DP is a DP is a DP.

  • I haven't found it, but the PullDP section tells that the wizard will only show DPs that are eligible as source DPs - so it's very easy to test.

  • Hi Torsten,

    How about my second question , if we having a Standard DP but installaed with WIndows 7 only. 

    can we still configure Windows 7 PULL DP to grab content from another Windows 7 Standard DP ? 

    Sorry that i do not have any virtual lab to setup for testing.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Jason ,

    thanks for the reply.

    base on my reading even a Client OS DP also a DP it just whout the PXE and Multicast features only.

    Mean i can safely use Windows 7 for multi-tier DP for this purpose?

  • Yes. From http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2013/06/06/introducing-the-pull-distribution-points.aspx:

    "Pull-distribution points can be installed on all operating systems that support a regular distribution point (even client operating systems)"

  • Depending on the infrastructure design and client numbers you might not need to hard code a DP, but use BranchCache instead.
