2012 SP1 to 1710 In Place Upgrade

    General discussion

  • I am planning an inplace upgrade of SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 to SCCM 1710.

    The clients distribution point in their main office has that distribution point setup on a Windows 2008 Server, will this still be a supported configuration when upgraded. I see that all support for 2008 ends with SCCM 1702.

  • You cannot upgrade directly as 1710 is only available as an in-console update. You must upgrade to a baseline version first; 1702 is the latest baseline version.

    Site Systems hosting only a distribution point are still supported on Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. From

    "This operating system is not supported for site servers or site system roles with the exception of the distribution point and pull-distribution point. You can continue to use this operating system as a distribution point until deprecation of this support is announced, or this operating system's extended support period expires."
