Is an in-place upgrade from SMS 2003 to SCCM 2007 technically possible and what are the caveats ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently managing a central SMS 2003 server, a primary and a number of secondary servers.  Due to hardware availability limitations we are looking at the possibility of an in-place upgrade of the central server as a first step to moving to SCCM 2007.

    Is a SMS 2003 in-place upgrade to SCCM 2007 a supported upgrade path ?  and short term would there be any impact for the child and secondary servers reporting up ?

    thanks in advance.

  • Yes, is it supported to do an in-place upgrade to Cm07 from SMS 2003  and SMS 2003 child sites will still work and be able to communicate with the new CM07 site.

  • Yes, you could certainly find this on your own by looking at the Technet site for Configuration Manager 2007. Very easy to search and find this type of information on your own.

    Everyone should always please do your own research first, then ask here :-)
