SCCM2007 Migration to SCCM2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    we have SCCM 2007 SP2+FEP2010 and we are going to migrate to SCCM2012+FEP2012, SCCM2012 already installed and used the same site code and same site name. and when going to create a migration job and adding the hierarchy from the existing SCCM2007 it is saying Failed (Duplicated site code with current hierarchy), that is mean I cannot use the same site code! now if there is a way to change the site code after installing of SCCM2012? OR I have to re-install with different site code?

    thank youi

  • Correct, you can't use the same site code. Reinstall CM12 using a Unique site code.

But to answer your question you can't reuse site codes it not supported you will need to re-install your 2012 site using a different site code: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb633287.aspx

    Site codes should never be used more than once in a Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy for active sites. If you have uninstalled a site that was publishing site data to Active Directory Domain Services in preparation for installing a new Configuration Manager 2007 site with the same site code, you should ensure that the previous site's information has been removed from Active Directory Domain Services, and possibly WINS, before attempting to re-use the old site code for a new Configuration Manager 2007 site. All references to the original site need to be removed from all other sites in the hierarchy, and you need to clean up any objects previously replicated to potential child sites of the new site. If this is not done, any newly replicated objects from the newly created site could overwrite objects already replicated to the child sites by the previous installation.

    Changing the site code or site name after installation is not supported.
