Deploying Office 2007 with ConfigMgr 2012 RC1

It’s so easy to deploy Microsoft Office 2007 with Configuration Manager 2012 as well as Configuration Manager 2007. For this, you have to follow these steps :

1. You have to create a msp file for Office 2007 using OCT then place it under the folder called “Update”

  1. Hello,
    I tested all this on our test environment, deploying Office 2007, Upgrading Office 2003 to 2007,
    I
    just have a question, what if i am deploying Office 2007 to a remote
    site (with a slow network connection, but has its distribution point),
    in the step 3, what should i put? a directory in site system, or UNC
    share folder??
    If i put site system, which one willl be selected??
    the primary in the central site, or the remote site system (the creation
    of the package is made in the primary server)
    and if i put UNC share folder, then i’ll have to recreate Office 2007 package as much as remote sites that i have???
    Which one should i choose please???
    Regards,
    Lotfi
