Prepare MultiPoint Server Deployment

When you begin your preparations to deploy MultiPoint Server, you must decide which network scenario best suits your needs, as described in Understand Your MultiPoint Server Network Environment. The decision you make will depend on the version of MultiPoint Server you have purchased, Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 or Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 Academic, and how many computers you plan to install MultiPoint Server on. For example, if you purchased Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 Academic, you might consider connecting the MultiPoint Server system to a domain, if that meets your organization’s requirements.


Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 for OEMs does not support joining a domain.

Additional deployment preparations can include the purchase and implementation of hardware and software for your MultiPoint Server system.
