UPgrade SMS 2003 or Install SCCM 2007 R3 SP2 fresh? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is recommended here, if we don't have hardly any packages or other items in SMS?

    I think, since schema already is extended, and SMS site already is set up, might be easier to upgrade vs. unisntall SMS & then install SCCM?

    Thoughts?

  • Hello - You can get upgrade options in the below technet article.

    There are two types of upgrades

    1. Side by Side Upgrade with new hardware (if you wanted to create new hierarchy this is the best option)

    2. In Place Upgrades (Upgrading the existing SMS servers with SCCM)

    Details given below.

    When preparing to upgrade a Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 site hierarchy, or preparing to administer a mixed SMS 2003 and Configuration Manager site hierarchy, you should carefully consider the information in this section.

  • Hi,

    If the SMS installation is not "really" working then I would reinstall and get a fresh installation of CM2007.

  • I successfully installed sccm 2007 r2 sp2.

    BUT, at end of install, it has two "Question Marks" beside

    Management Point and Management Point Control Manager"

    This is the ONE and ONLY site/mp, etc. that we have - Main SCCM server is the only MP and so forth.

    So, why do all other items upgrade okay, but then it has the 2 question marks - here's what is shows at bottom of upgrade log:

    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Begin monitoring - SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Timed out monitoring.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> End monitoring - SMS_MP_CONTROL_MANAGER.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Begin monitoring - SMS Management Point.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Timed out monitoring.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> End monitoring - SMS Management Point.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Completed monitoring installation of Configuration Manager services.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> All core services are available.
    <01-27-2011 14:13:13> Enabling Next button.
    <01-27-2011 14:25:49> Dumping data to C:\ComponentSetup.log.
    <01-27-2011 14:25:49> Moving to Finish page. Installation and Configruation processes are done.
