Windows 7 Distribution Device but also have OSD


Hi All,


As I’m new to this forum I would like to apologize in advance if I’m posting this in the wrong thread.


The challenge we have is that we need a design for OSD (Win7) with SCCM 2012 SP1. Actually we need our first “Green Field” SCCM 2012 SP1 implementation.


Functionally we need a way to have OSD over 2 main sites (+500 clients each) and 40+ smaller sites worldwide. The system we have at this moment was custom build a while back in time. But what we can do wright now is deploy unattended OS installs on every site thru a self-build “distribution point” (Windows XP) which works with a 3COM PXE service.

With SCCM 2012 it’s possible to have a Windows 7 Distribution Point however it’s not possible to have PXE enabled so for that the OSD is a bit of a challenge?


Is there a way for us to have a Windows 7 DP and also be able to do OSD?

If not is the only way to go to have a server on each site to have OSD possible.

The bandwidth to most of the small sites is probably not large enough to have a remote DP push an OS.


This forum/website is an absolute winner for SCCM lovers.


Thanks in advance.
