Shared Distribution Points - OSD and App V RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to use Shared Distribution points for our migration from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012.  I understand however that you can't share the DPs if you use App V(or OSD).

    You cannot use a shared distribution point from a Configuration Manager 2007 source hierarchy to host packages for Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V). App-V packages must migrate and be converted for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager clients. However, you can use a shared distribution point from a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager hierarchy to host App-V packages for clients in a destination hierarchy.

    As we are using APP V,  does this mean I need to buy a new server and set it up as a dedicated 2012 DP, then decommission the old one? Or are there any alternatives?
