Gents, Does somebody know if it's possible to use HTTPS with BranchCache in a SCCM context to retrieve content from neighbor workstations ? I think this can lead to unexpected issue if we previously configured BrancheCache through client settings ... Any idea ?
Hi! I need some advice regarding designing a solution for remote sites in conjunction with SCCM 2012 R2. Im thinking about using BranchCache instead of DP´s, but I need some kind of approval that it actually works in practice. The scenario: We have 400 remote sites (retail stores). At 350 of the sites, theres 3-10 PC´s. At 50 sites, theres 10-30 PC´s. 95% of the PC´s are desktops used as cash registers. In total about 2000 Windows 7 clients. The bandwidth is 2mbit, and we shouldn´t/can´t use any bandwidth between 07-20. During the night we have to take some overhead into consideration since there´s a bunch of batchjobs running for the system used for the cash registers. In essence, we cant have 20 clients download a big update/application over the WAN-link. The staff at the sites wont have time for troubleshooting and/or reimaging the PC´s when they get new ones or if they have to reimage old ones, so we won´t have to take OSD inte account. They will use consultants at the local citys who will just come out and switch out the cash register/desktop when there´s a problem which cant be solved remotely or when they order new ones. So what I want is an easily managed solutions for getting applications and patches out over the WAN without using to much of the bandwidth. SCCM itself is up and running here at HQ. I could go with a bunch of local DP´s, either as dedicated servers or installed on one of the local desktops, but that seems like a high maintenance solution. Especially since the sites are remote and we have limited oppurtunities to troubleshoot/replace a DP when it breaks. My estimate is that we have to use about 30 DP´s at the sites with the most devices. Seems like a lot to manage, so I would really like to avoid that. Hence BranchCache! In theory, this seems like a solution that fits our needs perfectly, but I haven´t found any real world scenarios/case studys on the internets where this has been implemented with SCCM in a case like this. I can only find design studys on how to implement it. (and one case study from MS saying it works, but I dont know if i should trust them Maybe someone here has experience from implementing a solution like this? Does it work? Any particular problems we can expect? Will this solution give us less administration then using DP´s? Or will there be too many problems to recommend this solution in practice? Thanks in advance, any help appreciated!!
Hi, I am new to SCCM 2012 and want to use branchcache feature for some of our sites which have very less users and they are on WAN. To use branch cache in SCCM 2012, please guide me on following, 1. Can I use SCCM 2012 server as BranchCache DP in distributed mode for windows 7 clients? 2. Windows 2008 R2 - Is this the only supported platform for branch cache enabled DP in SCCM 2012 for Windows 7 client? 3. Is there any way to use 2012 branch cache feature to deploy applications without configuring DP role for windows 7 in distributed mode? 4. Is there any guide to configure Windows 2008 R2 DP in distributed mode for Windows 7 devices. Thanks in Advance
