Reinstalling a Stand-alone Primary Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a freshly installed Stand-alone Primary Site. I have no clients as of yet. Because of some drive related issues I am thinking about reinstalling the server.

    I was wondering what are the correct steps to reinstalling the site server. I don't see any need to make a backup/restore since it's a fresh install. I would like to reuse the sitecode if possible.

    Should I run the SCCM setup and choose "Uninstall a Configuration Manager site"?

    Should I just reinstall the server and remove the site-specific entries from the System Management container in AD?

    I would appreciate any thoughts on the matter.

  • Generally I would say yes for the single reason that if "something" "somewhere" is trying to report back to or use the old site code, you'll know immediately. If you use the same site code, you won't know. In your case, without having deployed any clients, I would consider it OK.

  • Uninstall, double check the system management is removed from ad, and DNS if you published there, double check everything is removed from DB server and re-install.

  • I concur with Per. There's really not much to it. You could skip the uninstall and just manually clean the System Management container and delete the old DB.

  • Thank you very much for your help. Is there any reason why I should not use the same site code?
