Distribution point groups provide a logical grouping of distribution points and collections for content distribution. A Distribution point group is not limited to distribution points from a single site, and can contain one or more distribution points from any site in the hierarchy. When you distribute content to a distribution point group, all distribution points that are members of the distribution point group receive the content. When a new distribution point is added to a distribution point group, it receives all content that has been previously distributed to it. You can also associate collections to the distribution point group. When you distribute content, you can target a collection and the distribution points that are members of all distribution point groups with an association to the collection receive the content.
|After you distribute content to a collection, and then associate the collection to a new distribution point group, you must redistribute the content to the collection before the content will be distributed to the new distribution point group.|
Use the following procedures to help you configure distribution point groups.
