Using vNext in a LAB. Part 2, Configuration.

In Part 1. of this series we Installed vNext, now we will configure it.

If you have used Configuration Manager 2007 before you’ll know that we need to use Boundaries.
You need boundaries or the clients will not find the nearest
Distribution Point when they make a Client Location Request. The
boundaries help them find the content at the nearest Distribution Point.
Before we can configure the boundary in vNext we will create a new
Active Directory Site based on our Ip subnet.

Step 1. Add new Active Directory Site

We will begin our Configuration by adding an Active Directory Site.

Perform the following on the Active Directory Domain Controller as a Domain Administrator
