Of all the software I have had to deploy at a customers site, the most common is probably the Visual C++ Redistributables. They are not difficult to setup but can create headaches due to the number of them. In this post I will share some information to make the deployment of them much simpler.
I have been working with a customer on a migration and consolidation project, moving from ConfigMgr 2007 and removing secondary sites for field offices and replacing them with distribution points, during this process I identified a number of task sequence issues and issues with their existing environment due to Trend OfficeScan.
With all the excitement of the SP1 release this is something many people will have overlooked or not even seen, especially if you already have all your distribution points setup. Pull Distribution Points allow us to specify a distribution point to act as an upstream server for a specific distribution point.
