Looking for some advice on SCCM 2012 setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. We are starting to plan for the migration to SCCM 2012. I have been looking through the documentation but cannot find the answers to a few items. Are there any SCCM benefits from running Server 2008 R2 versus Server 2008 on the CAS, Primary and/or Secondaries?

    Also, I am assuming that there is no SCCM benefit for using SQL 2008 R2 over SQL 2008? Is this incorrect?

    Thank you.

  • A CAS is basically only needed if there are more than 100.000 clients to manage (or huge remote locations).
    The only benefit of SQL 2008 R2 is the new SRS implementation (Report Builder 3.0).
    Server 2008 R2 is needed if you want to make use a branch cache on distribution points.

  • We will be having multiple primaries for political reasons. We will be using the CAS for reporting mostly.

    I am familiar branch cache and Windows 7. I knew that R2 was needed for it to work but I never knew that the DPs could benefit from it. That is interesting. I will also check out the report builder.

    Thanks for the helpful information.
