Migrating to SCCM 2012 R2. Should we start deleting collections or just exclude them from the migration wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am looking for some experienced advise. We are in the process of migrating from CM07 to CM12 R2. My questions is should we starting deleting collections now or just let data discovery run and then select only the collections we would like to keep. From my understanding there may be some possible dependency and linking t other objects (Advertisements, quires..etc)

    Thanks,

    Phil

  • Hi Phil,

    First of all, R2 is still in beta, and the EULA does not allow you to inplement it in production.

    Furthermore, you can simply exclude the collections from the migration. should there be any dependencies with other collections, the Migration Wizard will let you know.

  • Why do you want to delete collections at all?

    Hi Torsten,

    Some of the collections (Direct, and Query) were created just for some softeware deployment projects that have since completed. Also some where just used for testing deployments.

    Hi Klaas,

    Yes you are correct (slapping my self on the hand). It is schedule to release on October 13th. I would actually then like to start the migration from CM07 then and wrap it up before the end of the year.
