  • Technically yes but I wouldn't recommend it. If you're doing something new, using a more recent OS version is much better for many different reasons.

  • SCCM 2012 is dead.  You will need to move to CB. 

    I would assume your boxes are 2008 which are not supported.  You would need to perform a side-by-side move of the systems.  Move to a new OS and the latest version of ConfigMgr

  • Hi Matthew

    yes we are running with server 2008 for SCCM 2007, now we have new setup installed with windows 2012 R2

    to migrate our SCCM, now should I installed SQL, SCCM and all in the new server then migrate the old one ?

  • You need to install Server 2016 to be compliant.  If not you can't do Surface updates and 2012 doesn't have much life left.  

    After you setup the new boxes you can use the Migration task to help move collections, packages, etc over to the new box or you can choose to move it manually and create everything yourself.  Then you need to push the new client to the boxes and have them point to the new infrastructure while turning off the old infrastructure.

  • It would be best for your new SCCM environment to run Server 2016 (if possible). Also, SQL server 2017 would be best too. The version of SCCM would be 1802.

    SCCM 1802 checklist

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/manage/checklist-for-installing-update-1802

    Here is a good step by step on how to install 1802 from scratch

    https://prajwaldesai.com/sccm-1802-install-guide/

    You have a couple choices on migration. You can migrate everything manually or use the build in function of 1802 to perform the migration once you have it setup.
