Adding a Secondary Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     We bought another company and currently I have a primary site SCCM2012 with 20,000 clients. Now the other company is currently using SCCM2007 with 50,000 clients. What is the best approach here?

    1. Add a secondary site from our current SCCM2012 with the 50,000 objects separate on the Secondary Site?

    2. Create a new Central Management Site with Both Primary Sites? (Of course upgrade 2007->2012)

    Thank you

    Tuan

  • There is no where enough details to answer this. Honestly the best answer is to hire a senior consultant to help with the redesign. And based on what little you have told us, there is no need for a CAS!

  • This can most likely not be answered here in the forums as there are many things to consider, like business requirements, detailed network layout, domain setup, infrastructure etc.

  • As Garth & Trosten said, you need to consider like network architect, domain setup.

    There is no need of CAS in your case,

    Stand-alone primary: For a hierarchy that has a stand-alone primary site as the top-level site, Configuration Manager supports up to 100,000 devices from client group 1. Beginning with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2, this number is 150,000. Additional devices from client group 2 and client group 3 are also supported. Unlike a central administration site, the edition of SQL Server that you use at a primary site does not affect the maximum number of clients that the hierarchy can support.
