Are old Machines working with new CCM agent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dears

    We have plan to migrate our SCCM 2012 to SCCM 2012 r2 in new server 2012 r2. Most of the machines are installed SCCM agents package already. my questions is when I install new SCCM 2012 r2 on new server 2012 r2 if I create new windows 7 package and deploy to the windows 7 machines what about old machines which they already have CCM packages? Are they taken new CCM packages from new SCCM 2012 r2 again? or is the updates compatible with old CCM package in C:\Windows?

    What about if I make new endpoint update package and deploy for machines which are already installed endpoint. Are they getting updates from new SCCM?

    So backup and restore to a new server? Or what have you planned to do exactly?

  • My plan is create new windows and endpoint update packages and deploy for new machines and old SCCM agent packages which is already installed on client machines. Is that is working?

  • My plan is install new SCCM 2012 r2 sp1 on Windows server 2012 r2. The old SCCM 2012 RTM already installed SCCM packages on machines and everyday sending windows updates and endpoint updates. The question is if I send SCCM packages to new windows 7 machines and other OS, are the old packages which are installed before with SCCM 2012 RTM are they getting updates?

  • Dear Sir,

    Regardless how you upgrade and do post-upgrades, Configuration Manager primary site or secondary site should be able to support communication from clients that have a lower service pack version. However, these clients can't use new functionality coming with new ConfigMgr version.

    Best regards
