Hi, I have Microsoft Configuration Manager 2303 infrastructure in my company. Recently, remote DP in primary site crashed (physical server) - it hosted Distribution Point and Site System roles. I want to fully remove this server from MCM 2303 hierarchy. Is it enough just to go to Administration - Site Configuration - Servers and Site System Roles, right click on server in question and select Delete? Would that remove all server's entries in primary site, DB, distributed packages references ... since I want clean environment before I set up new remote DP as replacement.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Yes, you can remove the crashed remote DP from the primary site by going to Administration - Site Configuration - Servers and Site System Roles, right-clicking on the server in question, and selecting Delete. This will remove the server's entries in the primary site, DB, and distributed packages references.

    However, it's important to note that if the remote DP was also a site system server, you will need to remove any site system roles associated with it before deleting the server.
