How to Prestage Content to Distribution Points Located on a Site Server

Updated: February 1, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

You can prestage content to add content files to the content library on a site server or distribution point before you distribute the content. Because the content files are already in the content library, they are not transferred over the network when you distribute the content. When a distribution point is installed on a site server, you must use the following procedure to successfully prestage content. When the distribution point is not enabled for prestage content or when the distribution point is not located on a site server, see the Prestage Content section in the Operations and Maintenance for Content Management in Configuration Manager topic.

  1. Use the following steps to verify that the distribution point is not enabled for prestaged content.

    1. In the Configuration Manager console, click Administration.

    2. In the Administration workspace, click Distribution Points, and then select the distribution point that is located on the site server.

    3. On the Home tab, in the Properties group, click Properties.

    4. On the General tab, verify that the Enable this distribution point for prestaged content check box is not selected.

  2. Create the prestaged content file by using the Step 1: Create a Prestaged Content File section in the Operations and Maintenance for Content Management in Configuration Manager topic.

  3. On the site server, export the content from the prestaged content file by using the Step 2: Export the Content from the Prestaged Content File section in the Operations and Maintenance for Content Management in Configuration Manager topic.

  4. Assign the content to the distribution point by using the Step 3: Assign the Content to Distribution Points section in the Operations and Maintenance for Content Management in Configuration Manager topic.

    noteNote
    When the distribution point is on a secondary site, wait for at least 10 minutes, and then by using a Configuration Manager console that is connected to the parent primary site, assign the content to the distribution point on the secondary site.
