I need to be able to identify the name of the SMS Distribution Point that is assigned to a client machine.  I have VBScripts that can return the Site and Management Point but have been unable to return the DP value.

Does anyone have some VBScript that can do this?

Clients aren't assigned to a Distribution Point, each time that a client requires access to a SCCM package, it performs a content location request, and the most appropriate distribution point is returned to the client for the package in question.

From memory, distribution points are returned in the following order (given that the package requested is available on the distribution point):

BITS enabled distribution point in same subnet
BITS enabled distribution point in site boundary
SMB enabled distribution point in same subnet
SMB enabled distribution point in site boundary
BITS enabled Distribution point in same ConfigMgr Site (if site boundary is not protected, or advert allows fallback to uprotected DPs)
SMB enabled Distribution point in the same ConfigMgr Site (if site boundary is not protected, or advert allws fallback to unprotected DPs)

As the client may be returned different Distribution Points depending on Package availability and advert configuration, there is no easy way to script what DP a client will use.
