Export Software Update Group -> Import into another SCCM 2012 instance. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm about to migrate from SCCM 2007 to 2012 in the second of our 5 domains.

    The first environment is now working as it should and I want to export the software update groups I've created (metadata only) from my completed environment into a new SCCM 2012 instance on a different domain.

    Does anyone know if this is possible? I'm happy to download the updates in the other environment, but would prefer not to manually create an identical software update group again and again.

    Thanks!

  • Unfortunately, No. There is no export option for Software Update Groups. 

    You could potentially look at setting up migration so that you can suck content out of the SCCM 2012 server into another SCCM 2012 server in another domain (I think that's supported) - just as you did when you migrated content from CM07 to CM12.

  • I found a solution in another forum. May or may not be what you're looking for.

    Within a software update group, select all and then ctrl + c to copy. You can paste this into Excel.

  • we use a script to export the approvals (for each SUG in CM12) and then import those approvals to WSUS for our MDT reference image.

    You might be able to use a similar approach, but might need another WSUS as intermediary?

  • I know you needed something from 2007=>2012, but I wanted to share the following scripts I wrote for a SCCM2012R2 => 1511 migration

    Export the 2012R2 Update Groups:

    Import-Module "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1"
    Set-Location CAS:
    
    $SoftwareUpdateGroups = Get-CMSoftwareUpdateGroup
    $SoftwareUpdateGroupsName = $SoftwareUpdateGroups.LocalizedDisplayName
    
    
    
    foreach ($Group in $SoftwareUpdateGroupsName)
    {
        $Updates = Get-CMSoftwareUpdate -UpdateGroupName $Group 
        $Updates.LocalizedDisplayName | Out-File C:\Temp\SCCM\$Group.txt
    }

    Import into SCCM 1511:

    Import-Module "D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1"
    Set-Location NXT:
    
    $UpdateGroups = Get-ChildItem -Path "C:\Temp\SCCM" #| % {$_.BaseName}
    
    
    foreach ($Group in $UpdateGroups)
    {
        
        $GroupName = $Group| % {$_.BaseName}
        $GroupName
        $Updates = Get-Content C:\Temp\SCCM\$Group
        $Updates
        New-CMSoftwareUpdateGroup -Name $GroupName
        foreach ($Update in $Updates)
        {
            Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup -SoftwareUpdateGroupName $GroupName -SoftwareUpdateName $Update
        }
        
         
    }

    Please note that you have to sync all updates first in the new environment, before running the import script.

    Cheers,

    Stefan
