SCCM 1706+ Passive Mode Site Server SMS Provider RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please can someone on the MS team (or anyone else :p) clarify a point for me that will make all the difference to our architecture.

    I see that with the passive mode site server, MS specifically say that the SMS Provider role is not normally installed by default on the passive box. My question is... can it be installed as a role manually, so that when you promote the server from passive mode to active, there is an SMS provider for the consoles to connect to?

    Many thanks!

    Having to run up another box JUST for the SMS provider so consoles can connect, seems a bit odd, we would rather have another SMS provider running on the passive, and if we can connect to it when the server is in passive/active mode, great!
