Is upgrade from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 1802 possible?

    שאלה

  • Hello everyone, 

    I have this scenario where an existing SCCM 2007 hierarchy in this organization requires to move over to ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802. We have following resource which states upgrade paths to ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/deploy/install/upgrade-to-configuration-manager


    SCCM 2007 is not mentioned there. 
    Give this situation; would following high level be a better approach to adopt? Please comment. Thank you.

    Side-by Side migration

    1. Create new ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802 hierarchy. 

    2. Evaluate if existing development work in SCCM 2007; advertisements (Deployments in later version), collections, packages, programs can be migrated to new ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802; using migration jobs. 

    3. Use existing SCCM 2007 distribution service; to deposit a scripted ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802 client installation; on all endpoints which are eligible for client upgrade.

    4. In phased approach; using batch by batch; trigger that deposited ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802 client installation to initiate. The upgrade script itself will actually uninstall existing SCCM 2007 agent and install newer ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802. Once newer client gets installed; use AD integration to assign it to its new ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802 hierarchy. 

    5. Once entire endpoint estate gets migrated over to new ConfigMgr Current Branch 1802 hierarchy and reports active; commence decommissioning SCCM 2007 hierarchy. 

    6. GO live! :)

  • I'm not sure what your question is here. Migration is the only choice. Client deployment can be done in one of many different ways.
