Swimage Distribution Point
Swimage allows for distribution servers to be created to help with distributing the content over your company’s infrastructure. Swimage can be synced with SCCM utilizing its available DPs based on the boundaries defined within SCCM.
Swimage also gives you the option to manually define override Distribution Points and/or create User State Servers
Log on to the Swimage Console as a member of the Swimage Admins group
Click on the “Global Settings” tab
Select “Resource Server Boundaries”
Click “New Swimage Resource Server”
Select the “Resource Type” – either “Distribution Server” or “State Server”
NOTE: Distribution Servers are used as local, distributed copies of the SwimDist content required to complete a deployment, i.e. OS WIMs, Drivers, Applications, settings, etc.
State Servers are used as temporary network storage locations for compressed migration files of user data during a PC Swap migration.
Provide a “Server Name”
If setting up a Distribution server, use the fully qualified server or share name only
If setting up a State Server, use a UNC path to the shared folder
NOTE: A static IP Address can be used instead of the fully qualified server name
Select Boundary Type
NOTE: Separate multiple IP Subnets, AD Sites or IP Ranges with a comma. Specify IP Range as: n.n.n.n-n.n.n.n
A NAS can also be created as a distribution point if there are network limitations.
