SCCM2007 to 2012 Migration queries RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have SCCM 2007 and 2012 infra running side by side(Single SCCMsite for each). SCCM 2007 infra is for Servers(based on Active directory  OU=Servers)& SCCM2012 infra for the Endpoint Devices i.e Laptops, Desktops(Active Directory OU=Clients).

    SCCM 2007 is not actively used. so we are planning to migrate SCCM 2007 to 2012.

    For obvious reasons we have few overlapping boundaries (for site assignment) i.e on single AD site we have Desktops & servers, so this AD site has to be present on both sites. And auto client push is not enabled on both sites.


    1.If we migrate all objects from SCCM 2007 to 2012, will the Overlapping boundaries causes any mess?
    2. (i)If we migrate all objects(collections,Boundaries) from SCCM 2007 to 2012, Will servers appear in SCCM2012? or(ii) We have to add 'system discovery' on SCCM2012 for Server's OU, till then they wont appear.
    3. if (ii) is the case, will it casue issues because of overlapping bounaries.
    4.Online reading said client push will uninstall 2007 and install 2012. Is this true for rest methods(GPO,Logon script,Manual install)?

    Please clarify these questions. We migration target date is nearing.

    Thank you,

    Mahesh

    2. it depends.
    3. No if system discovery is enabled it will NOT cause any problems as long and client push is not enabled too.
    4. yes it is true for all methods.

  • Hello Jones,

    for above point 1, what do you think is the alternate. Will i be able to control client migration using Boundaries, by moving one after another and delete from SCCM2007?

  • Moving the boundaries will NOT migration client from CM07 to CM12.

    If you use auto-push or the AutoDetect then your you need to remove boundaries form CM07 first.

    BTW, Why are you not looking at going to CMCB (CM Current Branch) instead of CM12?

  • ok, we are not using auto-push. We will go with Manual client push. So i think are good to go.
