MDT installed on primary site server - any upgrade risks? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    We have noted MDT is installed on SCCM 2012 R2 primary site server one of our customers has. I understand they used this in the past for building windows 10 clients (as current SCCM version on site does not support). 

    We are looking at in-place upgrading the SCCM instance to 1802, but is there anything additional we need to consider given that MDT is also installed on the Site Primary or can we ringfence/ignore this? We dont expect it will be used or needed once the in-place upgrade is completed given SCCM will be able to build the Win10 machines, we were looking to remove it once in-place is complete?

    Will having MDT installed on the site primary pose us any issues during this process?

    Thanks.

    I don't see why it would cause issues. MDT is installed alongside SCCM quite often (and integrated with SCCM).

    You can make a backup of the deploymentshare for good measures, and update to the latest version of MDT once the upgrade of SCCM is complete :-)
