Premise vs. Premises in ConfigMgr 2012

Last month during the "Windows Management User Group (WMUG) NL day with Wally Mead", one minor detail was seen in the demo's. I guess nobody was seeing it (?), but I did because a colleague of my (Rob Beekmans, @robbeekmans) was mentioning it to me earlier. Here it comes! :-)

In ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 a Distribution Point type is called On-premise. This is wrong because the proper term is On-premises as in - on your premises (see below).

In ConfigMgr 2012 R2 they corrected this, because a Distribution Point type is now called On-premises. Good job Microsoft!

From Dictionary.com
Premise: a proposition supporting or helping to support a conclusion.
Premises: a tract of land including its buildings.

As I was saying before: one minor detail fixed!


  1. For the whole explanation about why on premise is incorrect, read my blog; http://vthoughtsofit.blogspot.nl/2013/05/on-premises-like-on-site.html

  2. I love your blog. This is a cool site and I wanted to post a little note to tell you, good job! Best wishes!!!
