Server Share DP in SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a single Tier Hierarchy with SMS 2003 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 SP2. And the SQL Version is SQL 2000 with SP3.

    And in the same hierarchy I have 4 other Server Share DPs on App servers with Windows Server 2003 (No SP).

    I will upgrade my Single tier hierarchy to SCCM 2007 with SQL 2005. The only question I have is whether my Server Share DPs will work in SCCM 2007 or not even though I don’t have any SP on those DPs

  • Server shares are still supported in Config Mgr. Windows 200o as site systems is not supported. Windows 2000 SP4 is supported as a client.

  • that's correct, but hopefully you are not installing any win2k3 servers without any SP :-)

  • According to the documentation, SCCM site systems are not supported on Windows Server 2003 without a service pack.  They must be Windows 2003 SP1 or greater.  See the general supported configurations page (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd547071.aspx).  So I believe the 4 server shares on Windows 2003 (no SP) would need to have at least SP1 applied.

  • As Kent indicated, site systems are not supported on Windows 2000, they can be clients.  Check the supported configurations link I posted earlier.
