  • Question

  • Hi,

    Our SCCM 2012 SP1 environment has one CAS, one Primary and Three secondary. Now we are in the situation of move the CAS and Primary server to new datacenter, with existing data servers are not allowed in share datacenter. Secondary server no need to move anywhere.

    So I feel three below options to resolve this , which one would be good? Or else do we have any other option apart from this?

    Option 1)

    Go for fresh reimplementation.

    Option 2)

    Side by side Migration of Primary server:

    Introduce another primary server as an additional primary server and get the Global data replication done, remove the existing Primary and make the additional primary as a main Primary.

    Option 3:

    Decommission the existing CAS and Primary SCCM Server and remove it from the domain, build the new server with the same name and keep same drive structure as the existing SCCM server and restore the SCCM service from SCCM backup.

    What are the major risk we will be facing in above three options , since we are distributing existing environment?

    Thanks,

    Senthil

  • Why are you using a CAS if you are using just one single primary site? Sounds like a bad design.
    Why can't you just move the servers from location a to location b? It is no problem if the IP address changes, as long as the name and domain stay the same.
    Have you considered setting up another standalone primary site and migrate the existing objects over? That way you can eliminate the CAS.

  • Since we are going to use the shared datacenter , servers are not allowed inside with Data.  We may go with some more primary site , thats why we have CAS.

    Which option would be best ? Please suggest.


    The data will exist at BOTH the CAS and the primary server... So How does having a CAS help you?
