Delete existing System Management CN from 2007 and recreate before installing 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting ready to install SCCM 2012 clean, but wondering if I should delete and recreate my System Management CN in my Active Directory before installing SCCM 2012?

    Any best practice steps to do before installing SCCM 2012 into environment where SCCM 2007 was resident previously?

    Thanks,

  • Yep, once extended always extended and as Garth pointed out there are no differences so nothing to do.

  • No reason to delete the whole container, just delete the contents of it and re-permission it (the container) to allow the new site server full control (on it and all descendant objects).

  • Thank you Jason!!

    I see that I will run Extadsch.exe to extend the schema like I did with 2007.

    Any consideration here since I ran one for 2007?

    Just run it again for 2012?

  • No need to run it at all for CM12, it is the same as CM07.
