Sharing and Upgrading Distribution Points Thursday, October 05, 2017 1:14 AM (permalink)

Distribution points contain data for all your SCCM 2007 packages that have been advertised. Usually there's quite a lot of data residing on a distribution point, so you first need to decide whether to create new SCCM 2012 distribution points or share the source site's distribution points with your new SCCM 2012 destination site. Sharing the SCCM 2007 distribution points allows the destination site to use the existing data content without sending large amounts of data to a new SCCM 2012 distribution point. After the migration is complete, you can upgrade the SCCM 2007 distribution points to SCCM 2012 distribution points if you choose, as long as the minimum hardware requirements for SCCM 2012 distribution points are met.
There are a few things you should know about sharing and upgrading distribution points when designing and implementing SCCM 2012:
  • Branch cache and cloud-based distribution points are supported in SCCM 2012, but not all features are available to them, such as OSD or software updates. I wouldn't attempt an OSD from a cloud-based distribution point just yet.
  • In SCCM 2012, sharing distribution points automatically creates boundary groups to be used for accessing data. These boundary groups aren't used for site assignment. Clients in the SCCM 2007 site can still access data from the distribution points as always and so will the new 2012 clients. When the migration process is successfully completed (clients and all), you can upgrade your shared distribution points to SCCM 2012 distribution points. But you better be sure you're ready because once a distribution point is upgraded to SCCM 2012, it will no longer respond to SCCM 2007 clients.
  • When you upgrade an SCCM 2007 branch or standard distribution point to SCCM 2012, it becomes an SCCM 2012 standard distribution point capable of bandwidth throttling and rate limit scheduling to control data flow (new to SCCM 2012).
  • SCCM 2012 primary sites support up to 250 standard distribution points, which gives many organizations the option of replacing existing SCCM 2007 secondary sites with 2012 standard distribution points.
  • SCCM 2012 SP1 introduced a new type of distribution point called a pull distribution point, which is designed to pull content from another distribution point. Pull distribution points aren't capable of throttling or scheduling content flow. Only standard distribution points have these capabilities.
  • In SCCM 2012 R2, updating content on distribution points has been streamlined. When SCCM 2012 R2 refreshes data on the distribution points, it updates the fastest distribution point first instead of randomly selecting a distribution point to update. In addition, you can now cancel updating a distribution point.
To share SCCM 2007 distribution points, go to the Administration workspace in the Configuration Manager Console, expand Migration, click Source Hierarchy, highlight the source hierarchy you already created, and choose Configure from the ribbon. Then in the bottom left corner, select the Enable distribution-point sharing for this source site check box and click OK. You can view your shared distribution points by highlighting Source Hierarchy and clicking the Shared Distribution Points tab at the bottom. This tab also gives you valuable information about which distribution points can and can't be migrated in the Eligible to Upgrade column.
To share a distribution point, the account used to access the source site's SMS Provider requires only Read access. However, to upgrade a distribution point to an SCCM 2012 standard distribution point, you need Read, Modify, and Delete access to the Site object. You can upgrade shared distribution points to SCCM 2012 distribution points by following these steps:
  1. Within the Configuration Manager Console, go to the Administration workspace, expand the Migration node, highlight Source Hierarchy, and click the Shared Distribution Points tab.
  2. On the Shared Distribution Points tab, right-click the shared distribution point and choose Upgrade to launch the Upgrade Shared Distribution Point Wizard. (Alternatively, you can highlight the shared distribution point and choose Upgrade Distribution Point from the ribbon.)
  3. Walk through the Upgrade Shared Distribution Point Wizard. The wizard is pretty self-explanatory. Just be sure to:
  • Attach the distribution point to the correct site code from the Site code drop-down list on the General page.
  • Select whether you want Microsoft IIS installed (if needed) on the Distribution Point page. The version of IIS that gets installed will be determined by the OS of the distribution point being upgraded. Remote Differential Compression (RDC) will be installed if it isn't already present, but the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) won't be installed.
  • Choose the amount of drive space reserved, the primary and secondary content library locations, and the primary and secondary package shares location on the Drive Settings page. For those drives where you don't want SCCM content to reside, using the NO_SMS_ON_DRIVE.sms text file still works. You can monitor the distribution point upgrade by expanding the Migration node in the Administration workspace, clicking Distribution Point Migration, and highlighting your distribution point. You might need to refresh the screen to see the status changing. You can also monitor the distribution point upgrade by reviewing the ConfigMgrSetup.log.

      The operations were unpleasant. After the first my nose was "pressed". This implies with a specific end goal to stop the dying, the ENT master/specialist put a lot of cloth in my nose, which implies that one can just inhale through the mouth for the week or so of recuperation time. At the end of the day, gulping and breathing can't happen in the meantime. This is a decent approach to get thinner, as one can't eat much, yet it isn't an extraordinary approach to live. Toward the finish of this period, before hauling out the cloth, the specialist said "this will feel like I'm hauling your brains out through your nose". This was the most precise explanation he at any point made to me.
      Thanks& regards,
