SCCM 2012 Secondary site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    why we need to use secondary site instead of SCCM 2012 DP. if we use SCCM 2012 secondary site only for upward flow throttling how much bandwidth utilize each client for policy request and inventory/status messages.

    TIA

  • Note that the secondary site will have a DP -- you probably know this, just wanted to be exact.

    As for exact bandwidth requirements, there's no such thing as it depends upon multiple factors that are unique to your environment. The best that can be said is that it will be less because the secondary site consolidates and compresses the information sent back to the primary site. Additionally, the traffic can be scheduled and throttled.

  • Thanks Jason.

    I will agree with you. we can throttle the file based replication using DP except upward flow. If we deploy only DP instead of Secondary site. Each client how much bandwidth will utilize. what is your recommendation we will support Software distribution , Patch Mgmt, OSD.

  • Same answer. It depends upon many different factors that are unique to your environment and are therefore unpredictable. The only true way to know is to try it as there is no simple formula for this. Note also that ultimately, the clients themselves won't use any WAN bandwidth as they only communicate with the MP, DP, and SUP in the secondary site (although some limited communication is also required with an MP in the primary site also).

  • Hi,

    We can't provide the extact bandwidth utlization used by client for Software distribution, Patch Management and OSD.

    For Client to server communication, the bandwidth utilization is minimal.

    For Content download, it is based on your environment bandwidth configuration.

  • Thanks Jason.

    If we install secondary site, clients will communicate with secondary MP,DP,SUP. If we install only standalone DP client will communicate with MP through WAN( to download client policy, and send inventory, reporting status, and discovery information) . Need your update how much bandwidth utilize for upward data to MP.

  • Same answer -- every time you ask, it'll be the same answer. There is no way to predict it and it will be variable.

    This link will be able to calculate roughly based on your client count.

    At least can i have the information about how much WAN link speed we need to maintain between SCCM 2012 primary site to SCCM 2012 Secondary site.
