Hi,

My customer using MECM Primary Site with CMG (first CMG) which working perfect.
They now add Secondary Site and want to using separate Azure subscription for another CMG (Second CMG) instance.
the purpose is to separate the billing on Azure subscription.
So we have create 2 CMG with 2 Azure subscription.

My question is, how we can configure MECM client on Primary Site can only connect to first CMG and client on Secondary Site can only connect to second CMG.
Seems right now the client can either connect to first CMG or second CMG.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

    ==>My question is, how we can configure MECM client on Primary Site can only connect to first CMG and client on Secondary Site can only connect to second CMG.

    Per my experience, it's hardly to achieve this goal. Clients simply do not select CMGs based on any deterministic criteria -- it's basically a random selection. There is no way to direct clients on the Internet to a specific CMG.

    Best regards,
