DP Share Migration from different forest is possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello !


    SCCM 2012 Server is placed in CM12 domain/forest

    SCCM 2007 Server is placed in CM07 domain/forest

    Now, I need to migrate/share DP/s of SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012. 


    1) Is this possible and supported if there is NO trust between forests ?

    2) Is this possible and supported if there is TWO way trust between these forests?

  • 1) No, communication between sites require two way trust if in different forest. If there was one site within different forest you wouldn't need a two way trust.

    2) from what I understand; yes. Once you have the trust up and running you must create an account the the 2012 can use to gather info from the 2007 site. You will also need to make sure these ports are open which are used during data gathering:

    NetBIOS/SMB – 445 (TCP)
    RPC (WMI) - 135 (TCP)
    SQL Server - 1433 (TCP)
