What is the SCCM Management Point?

A management point is a site system role that provides policy and service location information for clients and it also receives configuration data from clients. When we deploy software to a client, the client sends a content request to a management point.  The management point sends a list of the preferred distribution points to the client, and the client uses one of the preferred distribution points as source location for content. If contents are not available on the preferred distribution point, the management point sends a list to the client with distribution points that have the content available.

Management Point can be defined on client computers when they are installed, or client can get the list of Management points through DNS or WINS.

Clients search for a Management Point by using the below options in the order specified:
  • Management point
  • Active Directory  Domain Services
  • DNS
  • WINS
