Hi all, as discussed in my previous blog post I have been tasked with replacing a clients Distribution Point servers. In that blog post I explained the process for commissioning the new DP servers and in the this post I will document the process for decommissioning the old DP servers.
Fortunately the process is decommissioning old Distribution Point servers is simple. All we need to do is to remove the server from SCCM and then shutdown the server, so lets go through the steps
At this stage I would wait at least one hour before continuing, this will allow for all downloads already in progress to complete and clients should no longer receive this Distribution Point as an available location for downloading content
Complete – it really is that simple!
