Need advice on SCCM Architecture

Occasional Contributor

Hello Team,

I have seen that after SCCM client is installed in a secondary site location, the initial communication is done with the Primary site management point for the client to be managed. If i have limited connectivity (only server can communicate across sites) from the sccm client to the primary site MP, is there a way around for the sccm client to get managed?


e.g. Will having a primary site MP (passive) located in the remote site (where the sccm client is installed) handle the initial communication for the client management?


Thank you in advanced.

All clients must be able to communicate with your Primary site MP.
Hello Garth,
Thank you for the response. I understand that communication is necessary. However, if I setup a passive Primary site MP in the same subnet as the client. Will that allow the client to do the initial communication to this MP instead of the active one ?

No it will need to talk the the active MP.
Okay. Thank you Garth. I got what i needed.
