Update to 1702 from 2012 R2 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 with all latest CUs applied running on Windows 2012 server.

    I'm planning to update it to the latest 1702, move it to the new Windows server (2016), and change the IP. The server name will remain the same.

    I'd appreciate any guidance/tips concerning the order of events.

    Many thanks.

  • Yes, that'll work just fine and will give you an opportunity to test out your DR procedures as well.

  • Upgrading to Server 2016 isn't a bad thing necessarily, is there a specific reason that you are rushing to get it done? Also, why are you planning any sort of server move? This isn't required.

    There' really not that much to this:

    1. Upgrade to ConfigMgr 1702 (with media)

    2. Upgrade to ConfigMgr 1710 (through console/servicing)

    3. Upgrade OS in-place.

  • Thank you Jason.

    I'm having issues with some Windows updates on the "old" SCCM server (they get installed, but after the reboot the server rolls back updates), so I was thinking instead of troubleshooting I'll use this opportunity to deploy a fresh 2016 server.  The old server runs on Windows 2012 (not even R2).

    How about:

    1) perform in-place upgrade to 1702 on the old server + upgrade to 1710.

    2) Backup of SCCM and restore on 2016 server.

    Do you think that makes sense?
