Using this GUID, you must configure DNS with a DNS alias (CNAME record) to map the service name that you define in the Configuration Manager cloud-based distribution point service certificate to the automatically generated GUID.
If you use a proxy web server, you might have to configure proxy settings to enable communication with the cloud service that hosts the distribution point.
Use the following sections and procedures to help you install a cloud-based distribution point.
The wizard creates a new hosted service for the cloud-based distribution point.
Configuration Manager uses the Site System Installation Account to install site system roles.
You specify this account when you run the applicable wizard to create a new site system server or add site system roles to an existing site system server.
The Windows Power Shell cmdlet, New-CMSite System Server, performs the same function as this procedure.
For more information, see New-CMSite System Server in the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 Cmdlet Reference documentation.
For more information about these certificates, see the section for cloud-based distribution points in the PKI Certificate Requirements for Configuration Manager topic.
For example, a remote distribution point is a site system server on a computer other than the site server, and which has installed on it the distribution point role.
When you install a site system role on a remote computer (including an instance of the SMS Provider), the computer account of the remote computer is added to a local group on the site server.
