Distribution point migration from sccm 2007 to sccm 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    We are planning to migrate sccm 2007 r2 to sccm 2012 sp1 , here we have lot of distribution point in remote location with huge size package , after migration if we distribute the package again it will lot of time , so to avoid that is it possible to upgrade the DP from 2007 to 2012 in any way ? or can we use the same distributed package in 2012 ?

  • Yes. As long as the communication paths are open and the site server has local admin permissions on the DP, then the forest/domain membership of the DP is irrelevant (as long as it a member of a domain).

  • During the migration you can share the old distribution points with the new environment and later migrate them to the new environment. For all the details, please refer to: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg712275.aspx

  • Why not skip 2012 altogether? I sure wouldn't be migrating to 2012 right now.
