Removing a branch distribution point is sometimes necessary when maintaining a Configuration Manager 2007 site. Removing a branch distribution point will also delete that branch distribution point from all packages.
When a branch distribution point role is removed from Configuration Manager, it is necessary to wait a short time (usually about 15 minutes) for this change to propagate through the entire site before deleting the resource from a collection.
To remove a branch distribution point
Remove all distribution package folders and the SMSPKGSIG signature folder from the branch distribution point computer.
Important You must manually remove these components before removing the branch distribution point role.
In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.
Click the specific branch distribution point to be removed.
Right-click the ConfigMgr distribution point role in the results pane, and then click Delete.
Click Yes in the Confirm Delete dialog box.
