Custom Naming Distribution Points

If you are using standard machines as distribution points in your remote offices, the naming might be an issue for you, as it was for us. There was nothing in the naming that distinguished them to allow us to know their location. The only option we had was to keep a spreadsheet list of the machines with the associated location. The easy way around this is to create a distribution point group that allows you to custom name the group. You only associate the one distribution point to that group, which then  gives you the custom naming schema you were looking for. When you distribute and deploy software, you select from the distribution point group instead of from the distribution points, thereby allowing for easy dissemination.
