Integrating Primary Site from existing Heirarcy with CAS to new hierarcy with CAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am facing a SCCM 2012 SP1 setup with 1 CAS and 2 Primary Servers. Out of which only one Primary is being extensively used. I have to create a Hierarchy with SCCM 2012 SP2 which would have atleast a couple of more Primary Sites added.

    Is it possible to deploy a fresh SCCM 2012 and integrate the one Primary from SCCM SP1 setup (which is being used )to the new setup?

    Regards,

  • Not completely sure what you're looking for, but you can't move a primary site from one hierarchy to another. You can migrate the information that you want to the new environment, but the recommendation is that you migrate from and to as site of the same version.

    How many clients are we talking about per primary and in total?

  • Actually the number of clients is still within limits but need to give local admins of one region all permissions only on their regional hierarchy. Plus there are different domains with no trust.

    It doesn't work like that in CM12. There is no such thing as a full administrator on a single primary site. It is all or nothing.

    Both are no valid reasons for implementing a CAS and multiple primaries. Sites are no longer security boundaries (as they were in CM07) and there has to be a two-way trust in place for setting up a primary site there. Clients in (un)trusted forests can also be managed by a single primary site. Re-think the design.

  • The regional site also wants to maintain their own OSD, Imaging etc and we don't want it to travel over the wire as its not useful for other sites.

    Will using a single primary result in any bandwidth concerns when OSD binaries are replicated?

    If you put a CAS is place you will need to worry about replication traffic to all sites. So really what does it matter in the end. With no CAS your environment will be a lot simpler to manage with less hardware! Remember that you can decide exactly which DP will store data.
