[HELP SCCM 2012] Deploying a StandAlone Primary Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I just arrived at my Back office service company. They asked me to take care of the SCCM infrastructure, cause I have followed the SCCM 2012 "Administration" lesson.
    However I do not have the "Deployment" part, so, I need some help.

    Architecture Informations :
    90 servers
    500 clients

    At this time:
    A Primary Site Standalone RTM, which currently manage Endpoint Protection updates on 90 non-client ccm servers (the database is very low, no packages, no application, no queries, October 1 groin machines groupings)

    Target:
    A primary Site R2 SP1, which manages Endpoint protection and WSUS on 90 servers ccm client. (Workstations are not planned at this time)


    My questions:

    1 / How do I do to deploy a new standalone parallel directly R2 SP1, repeat the Endpoint configuration as existing?
    Once tested this feature with the new server, the old standalone will decommission.

    2 / Can I use the same site code?

    3 / Concerned HDD Server, I got 500gb available
    C: \ 100GB (for the system)
    D: \ 150GB (for the installation of SQL & SCCM 2012 + BDD)
    E: \ 250gb (for packages of the DP role and WSUS)
    This distribution seems appropriate?

    In advance thank you for your advice and your help

  • Well you can turn off the current server and install a new one using the exact same site code. It's technically possible (*if* you know ConfigMgr very well). It's better to use a new site code because it makes troubleshooting much easier.

  • To add to this:

    • C:\ OS only
    • D:\ CD
    • E:\ Everything else (CM12, SQL, Packages, etc.)

    Using the same site code is begging for trouble.

  • Why not just run an upgrade to SP1 then, upgrade to R2, then upgrade to R2 SP1. 

    Upgrade paths are here:

  • No Don't re-use the side Code.

    Is this a Physical or VM?

    Like Paul said, why not upgrade?

    Hi

    I dont really want update the actual standalone primary site cuz to to many update to do. All SCCM 2012 & SQL server 2008 updates. This server was build 3 years ago, and never maintained. This is a VM

    This primary have services errors on
    SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER
    SMS_HIERARCHY_MANAGER

    HDD parts are misallocated (C:\ 170gb contain  system + sccm + sql + db  / E:\ 99gb contain packages)

    I prefer run a new server (VM) with native last version of SQL server 2012 (SP2) & SCCM 2012 (R2 SP1) but want to keep the actual site code as possible :-(

    Best Regards

  • It is not possible.

    You will need to create a new one and then if you need to you can set up a migration hierarchy between the two sites and migrate objects over.

  • Microsoft has just replace ISO to download in partner

    Now iso name is 

    System Center 2012 Configuration Manager and Endpoint Protection With Service Pack 2 Multilanguage
    X20-21849

    Two weeks ago iso was :

    System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and Endpoint Protection With Service Pack 1 Multilanguage
    X19-18215

    On the web, few articles explain SP2 = R2 SP1. 
    Is that right ? these 2 versions is exactly the same ?

    which version must i chose to install ?

    Thx for your answer

  • Hello, exactly the same question:

    In VLSC the title of the download reads:

  • System Center 2012 R2 Config Mgr Client Mgmt License with Service Pack 1

    However, the downloadable file is named

  • SW_DVD5_Sys_Ctr_ConfigMgr_and_Endpnt_Prtctn_2012w_SP2_MultiLang_MLF_X20-21849.ISO

    I'm more than slightly irritated about this naming.

    Is it the wrong file or is it named differently now?

    Anyone knows more? Thanks in advance, best regards, Markus

  • That should be the same version. SP2 and R2SP1 share the same code base. 
    There's also an installer available that can turn SP2 to *R2*SP1 after starting with SP2 from scratch.
