Reinstall client after a domain migration? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a single current branch primary site hierarchy that manages 8 different forests, all trusted. We also a single PKI environment servicing all 8 of those forests, which doles out the computer certs used by clients for SCCM, WiFi, etc.... 

    Four of those domains/forests are being collapsed into the other three (APAC, EMEA and the Americas). We are planning to use the Quest Migration tools to facilitate those AD Migrations. 

    Both the SCCM and PKI environments sit in a resource forest that is not being affected by the migrations. 

    There should be no boundary changes, as all IP subnets are remaining the same. 

    Do we need to reinstall the SCCM client after the workstation has migrated to its target domain?

    (I'm aware we're going to have certificate challenges, but we're working on a solution for that)

    No. ConfigMgr doesn't care about or directly depend upon the domain membership of managed systems. As long as DNS works, the client-facing site roles are still accessible, and the certs are still valid, then nothing changes really as far as ConfigMgr is concerned.
