  1. Hi Abheekdutta,
    I have worked with SCCM for the last 3 years and always keen to bounce ideas around with what can be done with the product. I have just project managed our internal upgrade from 2007, 7 sites condensed into 2, 150 DPs and 10000clients. Once I wrap this up I’m considering R2 for our environment, do you know if there any enhancements to user state migration to run from DPs?
