Remove distribution point role from the primairy site server

Copper Contributor

Hello fellow sysadmins!

I have got a question:

A few years ago we had a distribution point role setup on our primairy site server and added a lot of content to it. But because of performace issues we stopped using the site server as a DP and removed it form the boundary groups and distribution groups so that no content would be send or downloaded to/from this server.

But strangely content still gets added to the DP disk on the primary site server, even if we don't have it in the deployment group when distributing content.

Should we just remove the DP role from the site server or would this give issues?

Did you also check the automatic deployment rules for security updates that they are not adding content to DP?
