SCCM Boundary Group Evolution

Way back in 2007 , Boundary Groups did not exist.  Then came SCCM 2012 and changed the game.  We were given a “more better” way of dictating our content servers.  But Microsoft didn’t stop there.

With the release of 2012 R2 SP1 (or 2012 SP2, but whose counting), we got to see “Preferred management points” make its debut.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Microsoft continued to make use of the Boundary Group as if this was their plan all along.  As of 1702, Software Update Points can now be added to boundary groups, thus minimizing the need for a secondary site.

Here is a link to the Microsoft Docs (the new technet)  page discussing boundaries:  Boundary Groups

What are your thoughts on the future need for secondary sites?

Intro and Agenda

Hi Reader!  I’m a systems consultant for various Microsoft products with over a decade of real world experience.  I have so much information packed up in this head, it’s time to start letting a little out into the world!  Look at it as my way of giving back to all the hard working men and women that have been instrumentally responsible for my success.  Thanks, Bloggers!  This site is for you!

I’m working on a series for the O365 Pro Plus client to help answer the burning question my clients have:

  • Huh?
  • What?
  • How?

Stay Tuned and I will drop it this month.
