Can I delete System Center servers and Build new? Is that a problem? Any special steps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I appreciate any help in advance. I started building out a System Center environment and stopped after realizing although it was System Center 2012 it was not compatible with Server 2012. I was not able to add WSUS since it was not compatible.

    Now that SP1 is out, rather than updating I would rather just rebuild all my servers and start a new System Center environment. Can I just remove (disjoin from the domain) these current servers and build new? Or do I have to do some more work before doing that? Or would it just be best if I updated the existing servers to SP1?

    Also, if I can just disjoin the servers and build new, do I have to use the same hostnames or anything special? Again, any help is much appreciated.

    Current servers up and running (SQL 2012 (holds sccm db), SCCM, SCOM, SCEP, & SCWSUS (not configured at all).

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    You can reinstall Everything, you should clean the \System\System Management container in AD for all objects from the Configuration manager 2012 site that you are reinstalling.

  • Adding to Jorgen's reply, I would use a different site code too.

  • And one other things ... not very well known, but you should only reinstall everything on a Thursday and not a Friday :-)
