I apologize if the scope of this question gets too big, but I have a question about setting up a Distribution Point, after I've already setup a standalone primary site. From what I have been reading online, it's not hard to create a hierarchy after the fact, but I do have a few questions on how to properly setup SCCM for storage. I learned the hard way that SCCM downloads the files directly to the server (if it's a distribution point) rather than just running the files from a network share. After reading online, I understand this a little better based on having a wide geographic location within a SCCM hierarchy, but it's now caused a problem with storage space on my server. If my second server will just be a distribution point, do I still need to expand the hierarchy (since it's currently a standalone primary)? Is there a proper way to setup the partitions on the server? For example, C drive only 40 GB and E drive as 1 TB. Will SCCM then use the E drive for storage when you enable the distribution point role? If there are other partitions, do you need to create the NO_SMS_ON_DRIVE.SMS files in the root of each partition? Source: http://www.cireson.com/sccm-tips/sccm-tips-1-how-to-control-sccm-data-storage-locations/ Could you simply add some SAN space to the current server to replace the small data partition that is filled up? Thanks for the help! Brad Meyer
Hello folks, I'd love to hear any ideas considering planning storage for SCCM 2012 SP1 heirarchy. I've read this and it gives absolutely no idea on what the IOPS requirement are for SCCM 2012. I wasnt able to find any storage calculators for SCCM either. I understand that IOPS requirements are different depending on a lot of things but there should be some general guide lines? I hope So basicly IOPS, which underlying raid should we use, acceptable queue length. Capacity is not an issue, we have a lot of space, performance may be, thou. So i'd really love to hear something from you guys thanks in advance.
