So, Config Manager version 5.00.8239.1000 is upon us. I wasn’t too excited about this, till I realised that you can now treat Management Points in the same way as Distribution Points for preferred Content Access.
It’s a very straight forward task, assuming you already have your boundaries configured. Personally, I already had all my Management Point and Distribution Point servers assigned to an AD site boundary, and set for FAST or SLOW accordingly.
Yes… I had been waiting for this day 😛
Go into the Administration Node, and click on Sites. Then click on the Hierarchy settings button in the ribbon. Now tick the new box, and you’re good to go. Clients will now use a preferred Management Point.
