How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Site Server High Availability or Clustering

Configuration Manager is becoming more mission critical every day. The ability to Cluster the Site Server role (Inboxes & SMS Provider) is more and more important as that is the single point of failure for a Primary Site.

If the Site Server role goes down the Primary Site is down no matter how many Management Points or SMS Provider etc. exist.

If we could Cluster the Site Server or at least have 2 systems share that role for High Availability then this would no longer be an issue.

Even though we can designate multiple SMS Providers, if the site system itself goes down, consoles will not connect to ANY of these other providers. That’s because the console ALWAYS collects to the Site Server for a list of the SMS Providers every time a console is opened, so it’s not true SMS Provider redundancy if the Site Server goes down, no new consoles can connect.
