New SCCM Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a old distribution server setup I was using for imaging it was pointing to my SCCM 2012 R2 virtual server. I have a new SCCM 2012 R2 on a physical server.  Is it possible to point that distribution server to my new SCCM server?  Thanks.

  • I'm not sure on how the "New" server will handle the "Old" ContentLib.

    Is it still hooked up on the old virtual SCCM ? I would recommend deleting the role from that console before adding it to the new one.

  • No its on a separate physical server but its tied to the virtual machine.  If I turn of the virtual machine imaging will not work because some of the dependencies are on the old virtual machine.  Should I just export the images and add them to the new physical machine and then point the physical image machine used for imaging to my new physical SCCM server?

  • Yes. You won't be able to directly migrate the content of the DP to the new site. Also, all of the talk of physical and virtual machines is irrelevant. Clients, applications, network traffic, etc. is no different. An OS instance and the applications it hosts have nothing to do with the hardware being physical or virtual.

  • Help with what? Just export it from the old ConfigMgr site and import it into the new one. Or just grab the WIM file from the old sire and import it into the new site.

  • Thanks.

    When I try to run the export task sequence wizard on the task sequences it fails.  Error: doesn't have access to the path.  Has anyone seen this error?  Thanks.

  • Sure, just double check the permissions then.
