Enable Multicast | SCCM 2012

This is a quick post to show you how to enable Multicast deployments through SCCM 2012.


  1. Click Administration
  2. Click Servers and Site System Roles
  3. Click on the SCCM server
  4. Double-click on Distribution Point
  5. Tick the Enable Multicast option


Once you have done that, you will need to enable the multicast distribution for any packages/operating systems you may have.  To do this, do the following:


  1. Click on Software Library
  2. Click on the folder where you've saved your packages or operating systems
  3. Right-click on the Operating System or Package and click on Properties
  4. Click on Distribution Settings
  5. Tick Allow this package to be transferred via Multicast



It is not recommended that you enable Multicast when using SCCM.  This has been known to cause issues with the WDS service constantly crashing.
