How subnets and ranges are used internally by ConfigMgr 2012

We’ve had a community discussion recently over a post by the ConfigMgr product team about IP boundaries in ConfigMgr.  It seems there’s the real world way of doing something – and then the Microsoft way.  This is really an age old dilemma.  Microsoft develops a product to work one way, but customers find other ways to use it because their needs don’t necessarily match what was given to them.  No big deal.

However, the conversation about the IP boundaries was a long one and it was suggested that a follow-up post would be made.  Well, I’m not sure this is a true follow-up to that conversation, but Saud Saud Al-Mishari has taken a different stance on the topic and instead produced something extremely worthwhile.  Instead of providing a rebuttal one way or the other, he has put together a nice piece on how subnets and ranges are actually used internally by ConfigMgr 2012 and then talks about what he sees customers doing.  It’s great to be able to see both sides and also receive some practical direction.

Read it:  A subnet by any other name…
