SCCM 2012 R2 Server 2012 migration to New server 2016 -CB 1802 with new site name RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    Can anyone suggest me the best Server migration steps for SCCM Server 2012 migration to Server 2016 CB 1802. 

    • 1) New Server 2016 build --> Install CB 1802 
    • 2) New Server 2016 Build  --> SQL 2016

    Configure SCCM server disk drives, boundaries, primary site , Secondary site and DP's. 

    1. Can i take DB backup of old sccm server and replace in the new DB server ?
    2. Taking site server backup and replace in new SCCM server ?
    3. Moving contents using content library. 

    Can anyone suggest me the approach to successfully complete this migration.

  • Yes, don't migrate. Perform a simple backup and restore. Done. See https://home.configmgrftw.com/configmgr-site-server-os-instance-change/

    1. Yes, this is how you perform a site backup. See the page linked above.

    2. No, a server backup doesn't help. See the page linked above.

    3. Just copy them. See the page linked above.
