SCCM 2007 SP2 MP - Branch Distribution Point Availability Monitoring RRS feed

  • Question

  • The SCCM 2007 SP2 MP Guide for SCOM 2007 R2 indicates the following excerpt:

    Added Distribution Point Availability Monitoring

    Distribution Point availability monitoring is currently only available for Branch Distribution Points. The availability of the role is reported by the BDP Agent running on a Configuration Manager Client.

    Question: Do we need to deploy the SCOM agent to (each) BDP to obtain this monitoring functionality?  It seems that perhaps the BDP does not require a local SCOM agent for this, but I want to be sure.

    I doubt it matters, but just in case, we plan to setup BDPs on Windows 7 x64 workstations at the smallest sites and Windows Server 2007 R2 workstation-class hardware at sites without server racks at small sites.
