Primary Site Server vs Distribution Point RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my setup, we run Microsoft Configuration Manager 2012 R2  with a Primary Site Server which was our main Distribution point for in our office and another local distribution point we have been migrating data to.  We also have roughly 200 some remote Distribution Points that our sites contact for all their software/updates/etc.  We have set our corporate office boundary groups to point to our secondary local distribution point since our primary site server is getting low on space.  However, when pushing applications out, if I distribute it to (we'll call it DP1) the software will never get deployed.  Once I distribute the content to (PSS1), the software will begin to deploy.  Is there a reason why any applications we deploy have to be distributed onto PSS1 despite the boundary groups telling it to look at DP1 for data?

  • Hi,

    Agree with Sherry, the LocationServices.log records the client activity for locating management points, software update points, and distribution points.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    Cas.log on client Records details when distribution points are found for referenced content.

    MP will return a list of DPs that host the content, so please make sure DP1 is working properly.
