Hi Guys,


Our company has 32 sites across the UK, and a data centre where our SCCM 2012 R2 server sits. We don't want to put servers back into the sites, so I was wondering can you or has anyone used NAS devices as distribution points?


I know you can use branch cache for application deployment, but what about OS deployment, as the WIM files can be massive! Our WAN's aren't the best in the world so OS deployments will take an age, so was wondering if this is possible?

I work for a global retail company. Most of our DPs are just Dell PCs (running server 2008/2012). No server needed! Agreed it may not be as efficient as a server but a DP is just a file share. Not tested PXE boot tho.
