  • My first gues was right. I should have choosen a-. When chosing b- it's like only for administration and reporting purposes.

    choose a- to also install a primary site with distribution site management point and so on.

  • I'm guessing it's a-

    But Do I have to join the primary site to an excisting hierarchy or Install the primary site as a stand-alone?

    thanks,

  • The only path from ConfigMgr 2007 to ConfigMgr 2012 is a side-by-side migration. There is no joining a ConfigMgr 2007 site to a 2012 site or vice-versa -- they are two very different beasts from a hierarchy perspective.

    ConfigMgr 2012 includes a complete migration toolkit to migrate from 2007.

    Thus, your choice of a CAS or Primary is dependant on a proper design of your 2012 implementation.
