Migration from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a doubt.

    Our environment has been migrated from 2007 to sccm 2012. I can see that the collection ID's are changed.

    For eg: SMS001 is the collection id for the collection Adobe in SCCM 2007

    But in SCCM 2012 the collection ID has changed for the same collection. May i know the reason behind it? 

    Regards,

    Midhun

  • Been awhile since I did a migration but I think they are changed to reflect the new stie code. In other words collection ID's are always prefixed with the site code.

  • Hi,

    John is right, when you migrate a Collection from SCCM 2007 to 2012 the Collection ID is changed to reflect the ConfigMgr 2012 site code. PackageID's are not changed when they are migrated to prevent computers to rerun the Deployment.

  • Please come back with more information. Collection ID's shouldn't change unless you create new collections. The example collection id is not a valid ID so please do provide screenshot or something similar.

  • Yes, what you said is correct but the characters after site code also changed.
