Migrate SCCM 2012 to a new server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a server with some issues. It currently also hosts our certificate authority and AV along with SCCM.

    Our setup is a single server with SCCM installed. (Central\Primary site) There are also 6 other satellite offices that host distribution points. The Database resides on a different server.

    I have run up a new Windows 2008 R2 standard VM that I want to move SCCM over to and remove it from the current site.

    I have found a lot of sections about migrations that simply mentioned backup, turn off the old server, name the new server the name thing. That wont work in our scenario as the old server as mentioned hosts other services and wont be turned off.

    Any help or links to places would be great.

    Cheers,

  • As a best practice don't run CM on a shared server, especially your primary site. For this scenario your only two options are 1.) Start from scratch 2.) Use the 2012 migration wizard to do a side by side migration.

  • Hi John,

    I have started the process. I have a new SQL instance I am moving the old SCCM database to so I can do a side by side migration.

    Have an issue though.

    During the site reset the log comes up with:

    INFO: SQL Connection failed. Connection: SMS ACCESS, Type: Secure

    The only person I have found with the same issue is here. They are also trying to move from one SQL server to another. SPNs are not my strong suit so I don't suppose you know anything about confirming that the temporary server (Development Server) has correct SPNs configured for its SQL instance.

    Cheers,

  • A more updated log is:

    *** [08001][-2146893019][Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0]SSL Provider: The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.
    *** [08001][-2146893019][Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0]Client unable to establish connection
    *** Failed to connect to the SQL Server, connection type: SMS ACCESS.

    I am at an absolute loss.

  • You only need SPN's configured in certain cases. Jeff Gilbert has a great article on that here. http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/jgilbert/archive/2007/10/11/using-sql-server-named-instances-to-host-the-configuration-manager-site-database.aspx
