  • There are many things to consider: hardware specs of the site servers, current load, number of clients, LAN/WAN setup etc .. this cannot be answered without knowing much more details.

  • How many clients are in your environment?

  • I'm with Torsten here. From a technical standpoint you can probably do 1000's but from a supprtablity standpoint that number will likely be much less.

  • These guys did 9000 PC's and 450 servers in one night. LOL.


    I've heard other stories where someone did like 40,000 in one night. Of course that too was not intentional.

  • thanks for the reply. Probably 1k per day per primary site should be reasonable and maybe further breakdown by 125 clients per hours into 8 hours to minimize site server load.

    Anyone has experienced the migration with 1k per day per primary site or less? Do appreciate to share your migration experience.

  • Asking the same question again without providing additional details (see my questions above) does not change the fact that it cannot be answered. 1k per day is not a big deal if all clients are well connected and ConfigMgr is installed on a high class hardware. The same scenario would not work if 95% of all clients are behind slow and unstable WAN links and the server is already performing bad.

  • Hi Torsten, thanks for quick respond. Did not know that you respond so quick.. 

    My intention to get more feedback from others forummer share their experience of the migration.

    My client have about 160k clients around the globe and around 50+k on each primary site.
