Yet another SCCM 2012 R2 migration question RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello all, hope you are well...

    so like many others out there I am finally starting the process to migrate our SCCM.

    Our Environment ( All server OS are Windows 2008 r2 unless stated)

    • 1 x SCCM server
    • 1 x SQL server
    • 4 x DP ( 2 of which a PXE boot )
    • 6 x WIndows 2012 R2 DP located in branch offices

    We are running SCCM 2012 R2 CU4, and have approx. 12500 client devices - so its not a massive estate

    So after going round in circles and a poor MDS engagement with local MS Partner I am now seeking help here....

    My initial plan was

    • Build new servers 2012 r2 with new names
    • Install SCCM 2012 R2 CU4 on new servers
    • Export current DB
    • Shutdown existing servers
    • Import to new servers
    • Rename new servers
    • In Place upgrade to 1710???

    any thoughts, advice would be appreciated.

  • Why do you want to still install Server 2012 R2? That's on old OS.
    One way would be installing a new CM CB site and migrate everything over; use DP sharing and "move" them to the new site then.

  • hello, thanks for the reply

    at the moment we have some licensing issues, that would need to be resolved before looking at later MS OS.

    Cool idea about a new site and migrate over, is there a good blog post anywhere about the process?
