  • Question

  • I want to migrate from 1610 on Windows Server 2008R2 with a remote SQL Server 2012 to 1702 on Windows Server 2016 with a local SQL Server 2016.  Any recommendations?

  • No need to migrate: see https://home.configmgrftw.com/configmgr-site-server-os-instance-change/ and https://home.configmgrftw.com/configmgr-site-backup-restore/

    Moving the DB local is no different that moving it anywhere but I would highly recommend doing that as phase two.

  • Thanks for the response.

    Quick glance at those articles didn't help.

    I'll dig into them.

    I have already installed everything for a new site on the new server.

    I assumed I would be doing some sort of side-by-side thing.

  • That's the subject of the first article -- doing a side-by-side migration is wasted work and can cause you issues. Doing an in-place upgrade and then site backup and restore is far better.

  • Concur with Jason that side by side thing are more than things.

    Use site backup and restore to new hardware is much simpler.

  • I've already got Windows, SQL and SCCM 1702 installed on the new machine.

    Pretty sure the drive and all don't match the old machine.

  • You can only perform a restore to the same version of ConfigMgr. This is done during setup.

  • I think I will suffer thru migration using these instructions.
