Site codes and migration from 2007 R3 to 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have SCCM 2007 R3 in our environment with one standalone primary server in our main office, secondary server in an off site location and another distribution point in another location. My question is, If I build a 2012 R2 server and prepare it on a VM, can I put the same site code on it or does it need to be different?

    Basically, I would like them to run side-by-side and migrate slowly but surely or am I going about it the correct way?

    Thanks,

    Niall

  • If you are going to do a migration, you must use all new site codes.

  • Agree with Jason, you need to use new site code.

    For SCCM migration side by side, you can refer below link

  • All ConfigMgr does is populate the System Management container. Thus, to start over, just delete the contents of this container.

  • Thanks a million for that, clears that question for me.

    One more quick question about this. I have already installed SCCM 2012 R2 on a VM with the same site code and on the same domain so I will uninstall and reinstall it now. Will this be ok with active directory or will it have 'confused' AD already? The new VM has been shut down since I installed it but just wondering has it updated this new info about the new server into AD?

    Thanks.

    Niall
