A proxy management point is a management point installed at a secondary site. The proxy management point is used by Configuration Manager Clients to retrieve policy at secondary sites attached to their assigned primary site. The proxy management point receives inventory data and status messages and sends them to the secondary site server to be forwarded to the parent site. Using a proxy management point increases bandwidth usage efficiency for clients at secondary sites.

Proxy management points can be installed only at secondary sites.

To install a proxy management point at a secondary site

  1. In the Configuration Manager console of the secondary site's parent primary site server, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <primary site site code> - <site name>/ <secondary site site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems / <server name>.

  2. Right-click the name of the server that you want to install the proxy management point on.

  3. Click New Roles and then complete the New Site System Roles Wizard to install the management point on the server.
