SCCM 2007 Secondary to SCCM 2012 Secondary Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • we are planning to upgrade SCCM 2007 secondary to SCCM 2012 Secondary Site, As per the TechNet document that I understand i can't do in place upgrade of Secondary site. I can do only upgrade of 2007 DP to 2012 DP,

    This is what I plan,

    1. Install a SCCM 2012 Secondary site

    2. Enable DP sharing in 2012 and share the DP of 2007

    3. Upgrade the 2007 DP into 2012 DP on 2012 Secondary Site.

    My question is,

    1. How to copy the DP package to 2012 Secondary Server DP, it will happen during the upgrade or we need to use Export/extract Content feature in SCCM 2012

    2. How the client migration will happen? Do we need to distribute the 2012 client prior to DP update or we can use client push to upgrade old client.

    3. before share the DP, do i have to remove the MP, PXE role on the 2007 secondary?


    Thanks for your support

  • Thanks for your response Torsten,

    when I try to reassign the shared DP of secondary server, I don't see any package in content convention.

    I don't know if I am missing something.

  • Before you upgrade a shared distribution point, ensure that all content that is deployed to the distribution point is migrated (text copied straight from the article).

  • I have already few packages available in that DP that I am going to migrate

    The second shared DP that I want to migrate to 2012, but it is not working.

    Do I need to specify any thing in reassign distribution point wizard, because I only select  the site code where I want to migrate the 2007 DP, and all other option I leave default and client on next.

    This is what I am trying to do.

    I have build a SCCM 2012 Primary and Secondary Server and I am trying to move the DP from exiting SCCM 2007 Secondary Site DP to 2012 Secondary Site.

    I set a source hierarchy for primary server with enable shared DP then I am trying to reassign a DP.
