SCCM TP 1806 – Download content from a CMG

The Cloud Management Gateway keeps getting better and better. In recent release of the Technical Preview 1806, clients can now download content from the Cloud Management Gateway. This means you do not need to deploy a Cloud Distribution Point which will save costs of not needing additional Azure VM’s and certificates. It is also not mandatory now to use the trusted client root certificate. This is useful if you are only using Azure AD authentication. More information can be found Here.

Going through the new CMG wizard and signing in as normal and selecting to deploy the CMG in Azure Resource Manager.

You can notice a few things different here. First I do not need to select the trusted client root certificate, before this was mandatory. And also there is a new checkbox “Allow CMG to function as a cloud distribution point and serve content from Azure storage

Once the CMG has been deployed, I will use the Configuration Analyzer to make sure everything is OK.

Now when you distribute content you can select your Cloud Management Gateway.
