2012 SP1 to 1710 In Place Upgrade RRS feed

  • 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 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/configs/supported-operating-systems-for-site-system-servers:

    "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."
