  • Hey,

    You definitely do not want a CAS. A CAS is only needed when supporting 100,000 + clients and adds another layer of complexity to the site. For an environment so small, Your best option would be a single primary site. You should install the site server (All the roles you want e.g. MP, DP, EP etc.) in the head office and a distribution point at each remote site (You won't need a secondary site for such a small number of clients at the remote sites) the DP at the remote sites will allow client to pull content locally instead of coming back to the primary office. This should work just fine for you and will simplify your ConfigMgr environment.

  • Hi,

    As suggested by Justin you can go with a single primary server that will do the job. You can install almost all roles on this server.

    For the hardware sizing you can refer to the following link:
