SCCM 2012 Environment move RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a SCCM2012 environment which is being moved to a new data center, does anyone have any opinions on shutdown/start up procedures (from shutting down the servers, moving and starting back up), see below environments:

    1 x Primary Site Server - AppCatalog, Asset Intelligence, Component, Distribution Point, Management Point, Site Server and System.

    1 x SQL Failover cluster (with 2 nodes) - Component, Site Database, Reporting

    2 x SUP - Component, SUP

    6 x Distribution points (at various sites) - Distribution Point

    We are currently designing a plan for the move, so any opinions would be great.

    Thanks

  • It really shouldn't matter at all. For my OCD I'd start up SQL first, the primary second then the DP's but CM is pretty good at self healing in such a situation.

  • Yep, nothing special whatsoever but as John mentioned, since ConfigMgr relies on SQL Server, it should be last down, first up.

    Unless you are changing the server -- which you actually can't do unless you want to break ConfigMgr -- there's nothing else to worry about except making sure the DNS records get updated for the IP addresses (assuming those are changing).
