Clean migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to do a clean install for CM2012?  Ideally I'd like to uninstall SCCM2007 and then just bring up 2012 as a fresh configuration and then add in just the packages needed.   If so what's the best way to deal with the agents on the workstation that already exists, does it just get overwritten when the 2012 agent installs itself?

  • I would leave the SCCM 2007 site up and running, create new Boundaries and boundary groups in sccm 2012 and don't enable the boundary groups for Site Assignment, thenyou will not have any overlapping boundaries. That way you can migrate in your own pace.

  • Hi,

    Yes that is possible. When you deploy the ConfigMgr 2012 client to the computers, it will automatically uninstall the old sccm 2007 client. It is not supported to have SCCM 2007 clients reporting to a sccm 2012 site anyway so you would still have to deploy the new client.

  • So in that case the best approach is to a) leave 2007 up and running until 2012 has taken over or b) need to remove 2007 completely prior to installing 2012?
