Replace SCCM 2012 standalone primary site server, no backup available RRS feed

  • Question

  • An unexpected raid failure took out my logs disk with the result that my SCCM wont run. I tried replacing the failed disk but for some unknown reason it completely wiped several of my volumes including Wsus and Distribution point. I do have the original SQL database files and the disk where the SCCM binaries were installed, but it strikes me it would be easier just to rebuild the server from scratch. Is this likely to be successful. If not, is it possible to completely remove any trace of SCCM from my systems and start again.

  • Well it depends ... rebuilding might be an option if there were not many objects (packages, applications etc). You can use the database to restore though.

  • There were very few objects, this was mostly used for AV and windows updates for 150 systems

  • If you stand up a new environment give it a new site code and hostname. You can manually remove the items from within the System Management OU and tidy that up.

    Container, not OU.
