Replacing Distribution Point in Branch Office SCCM 2012 R2

Recommended Posts

Just setting up some new servers in our head office ready to send out to our branch offices to replace their aging servers.

 

Can I setup the new server with its temporary IP etc and distribute all the content to it before I send it off?

 

When it is in destination it will have a new IP and be a member of a different AD site.

 

Alternatively if I wait until it is at the branch office before I add it as a site system server. Then distribute the content. Will the content be transferred from the old server that is in the same AD site or will it be transferred over the WAN?

You should be fine with a temporary ip, because ConfigMgr works with the FQDN of the machine and not it's ip address. Just keep in mind that you can't move a site system from, for example, a primary site to a secondary site.

Thanks Peter. All worked great.

 

I added the servers as Site System Servers. I then added the Distribution point role. Once this was done I added them to our Global DP group and all the content was disturbed as expected.

 

Next I shipped to the branch offices. Once in the branch office I set the static IP, promoted to a DC, Installed DHCP, & WDS. made the relevant config changes. I then enabled PXE on the DP and all worked great!
