Configuration Manager Clients Not reporting to local Management Point

Posted on 2009-05-18

I've started to deploy Configuration Manager accross my WAn to remote sites by installing a management point on their local DC.  But they still show that tyey are reporting to the intial manahement point, which happens to be the single reporting server in the architecture.
Note I ahve one SQL/Site server at my main dtb cebter and want a distributed achitectur for Config Manager, so each local DC will be a management and softwre distribution poin.  In rder to do this I istalled the server rols on the locla DC and then the clients but they are showing up as clients to another management popint (the main server)

Can I get remote site A clients to report to its local DC for all data.  As I have DCs at over twenety sites that need to be the local distribution and manegement points rather than the main core server accross the WAN

Only one MP is supported in a site, if you have a lot of clients in a site you can use NLB for the MP (MS recommends this when you have more than 25 000 clients). I recommend that you create secondary sites on your remote offices and also install a Proxy Management Point in that server. Then you get the feature that I think you are looking for.

This is the way you have to design it if you want to control client traffic over your WAN.
