About Data Priorities

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

You can prioritize various types of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 data that is passed from site to site. The three priorities (low, medium, and high) are used in two ways:

  • As relative rankings by Configuration Manager 2007 Replication Manager to determine which data is sent first. High-priority data is sent before medium, which is sent before low. For example, you can configure Configuration Manager 2007 to replicate the site control file at high priority, status messages at medium priority, and MIF files at low priority, which causes Configuration Manager 2007 to send site control files first, status messages second, and MIF files last.

  • As restrictions by sender addresses. You can configure sender addresses to pass data with a specific priority during certain times of the day. For example, you can modify an address to pass only high-priority data between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Medium- and low-priority data would wait during those hours and would be passed only between 5:00 P.M. and 8:00 A.M.
