Migration from SMS 2003 -SCCM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am planning for an Upgrade from SMS 2003-SCCM 2012.

    My current environment has a Central-Primary-secondary

    and In 2012 I just need a Primary and a remote DP in another location.

    So what do I need for SCCM 2007. Do I just need a Primary if I am planning for a side-by -side migration.

  • Hi,

    If you are going to do a Side-By-Side migration from SM2003 - SCCM 2012 why first do a side-by-side migration from SMS 2003- SCCM 2007? It is the same amount of work to do it directly to SCCM 2012?

    As an option you could do an inplace upgrade of your SMS2003 -> sccm 2007 and then migrate to SCCM 2012 that is the easiest way.

    For the question what you need in SCCM 2007 it really depends on what you are using the different sites for today, without knowing all the details I would say yes you can go for one primary site, you will consolidate it in SCCM 2012 anyway.

  • Right, But the hardware currently in use is pretty old and I am not sure if it stays good for an inplace. I am not sure if it can withstand a restart. 

    So In-place is a eliminated.

    Back to my question: Considering my secondary is at a different location and what ever  role it may be holding. I am planning to attach the old SMS to SCCM 2007 as a child and do the replication. But what about my other small sites( Secondaries) . How do they get consolidated into one single Primary in SCCM 2007.

    Thanks,
