- There are multiple Management Points in a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager site.
- Some Management Points reside in an untrusted forest
- There is a firewall between the Management Points in the untrusted forest and the intranet.
When clients boot from PXE, the Distribution Point contacts Management Points to query client and deployment information. The Distribution Point does not differentiate between local Management Points and those in an untrusted forest, it merely selects Management Points in alphabetical order. If the Management Point in the untrusted forest is the first in the list alphabetically, and there is a firewall between the Distribution Point and the Management Point, the client PXE boot may fail.
