    I need a small help from you. we are planning to come up with four new datacenters, two in europe, one in asia pacific and one in america region. We also have small branch offices in different regions apart from these major datacenters.

    Now, i am planning to deploy sccm for the 4 major datacenters:

    1) one central site with software update point (with wsus) in one european datacenter.
    2) one primary site with software update point in second european datacenter.
    3) one distribution server with sup in both asia pacific and us datacenter

    The idea here is, all the clients in europe will report to the european data center. other clients in us and asia pacific will report to the primary site. However, for updates and packages they will contact their local sup and distribution points.

    all remote clients in different boundaries in asia pacific and us will talk to the distribution point in asia pacific and us for updates and packages.

    Now, i want to understand am i planning correctly. Should i put distribution points and sup in asia pacific and us datacenter or not? Or should i allow the clients from apac and us to talk to the primary site in europe without having any distribution point and sup in asia pacific datacenter and us datacenter.

    Can you please guide me, what should be the ideal planning for sccm 2012 considering 4 datacenters, 2 in europe , 1 in US and 1 in asia. Apart from these datacenters we also have small clients (50 in number) at different geographical boundaries in asia, us and europe. M i planning correctly or is there any thing you would like to suggest.

    Please email me with your suggestion.

    Anticipating your prompt response.

    We planned to devlope a tool called as Termination Tool. This tool with help us to delete the package, program, collection & advertisement from console. Also it will delete the package from DP’s. All this needs to be done from VBScript. It would be helpful to me if you can guide me, as I am a complete fresher to VBScript.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Eswar,
    I follow your posts and like them ! Go on like this.

    I do have a request. Do you know if there is a SCCM 2012 report which will display my succesfull advertisements between a period.
    E.g. between 01-02-2013 and 01-03-2013 and the list will be all advertisements and the amount of succesful deployments of them

    Any idea ?

    Hi Eswar……Few days back i’ve recieved 1 mp error below is the error.
    ConfigMgr 2007: MPControl.log shows HttpSendRequestSync fails with status code 500 ‘Internal Server Error
    Now this error has attacked my another secondary server. Will revert with logs tomorrow till 11.30am.basic troubleshooting what technet has suggested i’ve tried but so far no luck. I think its issue in AD(SPN) related…..
    My SCCM hierarchy is as below
    Central server
    Primary Server for HO locations as 1000+ systems are there and 40 secondary sites national as well international(30national+10int’nal)
    if anything else is required then let me know…..

  23. saurabh said

    I have went thru this technet solution but at the starting of the website it has clearly mention as below…..

    Note: The information below does not apply to Windows Server 2008. Do not run these steps on a Windows Server 2008-based computer.

    I believe its a (AD)SPN related issue…..

    Hey Eswar,
    Thanks for sharing all your knowledge with the community. Your blogs/website has been such a life saver a million times. Glad we have such a gem hiding in India somewhere, and contributing to the world. Great work, and keep up the good work.
    I have been struggling to find how I can use powershell to upgrade remote Distribution point. We would like to use scripts to upgrade our remote DP’s from 2007 to 2012. So far there has been no luck in finding a solution to this.. thanks for your help in advance. (I know this is not a forum, so sorry about posting my question here)
