Till Now we have completed understanding on below points.
Today I will share you the some inputs on when to use Distribution point sharing and Distribution point reassignment while Running Migration Jobs between Source and Destination Hierarchy. There are a few important points to understand before we choose these one of these options. Below I will provide 2 scenarios where I will Distribution point Sharing and Distribution point Reassignment.
Scenario 1: Distribution point Sharing.
Once Data Migration from Source hierarchy to a destination hierarchy is completed and we have following metadata for packages, Applications etc in destination hierarchy along with the Source that we have copied to new package source in destination hierarchy. So we have almost every thing ready for Client Migration to destination migration, except for the distribution points that will serve the content to client devices. If we are planning to use the same distribution points for both source and destination hierarchy then we can enable the distribution point sharing in the destination hierarchy. Distribution points that we share must meet the prerequisites for shared distribution points.
To successfully share any distribution points from a source site, at least one primary site or the central administration site in the destination hierarchy must use the same port numbers for client requests as the source site. ( Client -- > Distribution point ports like HTTP port 80 or HTTPS port 443) ex: If source server is using a port 80 for client to distribution point communication then we must configure port 80 for Client to distribution point communication in destination hierarchy.
For each source site, only the distribution points that are installed on site system servers that are configured with a FQDN can be shared.
To share a distribution point from source site, the Source Site Account (which accesses the SMS Provider for the source site server), must have Modify permissions to the Site object on the source site. You grant this permission to the account by using role-based administration. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/fundamentals-of-role-based-administration.
