In this part of SCCM 2012 and SCCM 1511 blog series, we will describe how to perform an SCCM Service Connection Point Installation. The Service Connection Point is a new site system role that serves several important functions for the SCCM hierarchy.

It might affect how you configure this site system role:

  • Manage mobile devices with Microsoft Intune– This role replaces the Windows Intune connector used by previous versions of SCCM, and can be configured with your Intune subscription details
  • Manage mobile devices with on-premises MDM– This role provides support for on-premises devices you manage that do not connect to the Internet
  • Upload usage data from your Configuration Manager infrastructure– You can control the level or amount of detail you upload
  • Download updates that apply to your Configuration Manager infrastructure – Only relevant updates for your infrastructure are made available, based on usage data you upload

Site System Role Placement in Hierarchy

Each hierarchy supports a single instance of this roleThe site system role can only be installed at the top-tier site of your hierarchy (On a Central Administration Site or a stand-alone Primary Site).
