Microsoft’s resident Rapper, D.C. Tardy, has written up an excellent post talking about the new SQL replication for ConfigMgr 2012. No longer will you have to sit and watch inboxes while corrupt files pile up. Instead, you’ll need some SQL skills should anything happen.
Honestly, this is a huge improvement in ConfigMgr. Replication will be much quicker and a bunch of headaches will be eliminated. In fact, the only file replication left in ConfigMgr 2012 is for software package installation bits, software updates, and boot images.
