A distributed repository doesn't really manage any nodes. All nodes are managed by the ePO server.
All a distributed repository does is provide a local copy of install files and DAT rather than the node pulling them across the LAN/WAN from the master repository.
If your question is "How can i tell if my node is pulling it's updates from the DR rather than the MR?" then have a look at this thread
As it has some links to pre-built dashboards that report repository usage.
Hello Tristan thanks for your response, I understand the nodes are not managed by Distributed Repositories, so please forgive my poor choice of words.
The thread you have sent me is perfect, a set of queries and reports that will show what nodes (if any) are getting DAT updates from a specified DR.
I have the “EPO-Repositories-Dashboard.xml” I guess this is a query/report I can import into ePO4.0 ?
