SCCM: How to limit distribution point packages to one drive.

When you install a distribution point, you specify which drive it should use. When this drive is full, the distribution point will automatically start using another drive.

For drives where you don’t want any packages from the distribution point, create an empty file with the name “NO_SMS_ON_DRIVE.SMS” and place it in the root of the drives.

This trick works on both SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012.
