SCCM Content Locations

All SCCM content locations for applications, packages, and drivers have been moved to the new IS-CIFS share:

  • Original content location: \\tss-softstore\SCCM Staging\…
  • New content location: \\is-cifs.sig.oregonstate.edu\SCCM Staging…

For those who might not be aware, this is where all of the source files are located for packaged content in SCCM. This content is then distributed to OSU-CM-DP01, our primary distribution server. All systems with the SCCM client receive content from this server.

Testing was performed to ensure that OSU-CM-DP01 received new content from the new location when new content was added.
