SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 Migration – Step by Step Guide – Part 2


In this Post , You will learn on how to Migrate SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 . Although the Actual Environment would be a more Complex Scenario but the Underlying steps remain the same .

Before we Migrate , I will give you a brief about the Environment in which this Migration has been Performed ( It is Based on MS Virtual Lab ) with One SCCM 2007 Primary Site Being Migrated to SCCM 2012 Central , There is One Primary Site and One Client which is Finally Upgraded to SCCM 2012 From SCCM 2007 .

It Should be Noted that there is no Direct Method of Migration but the only way to perform Migration is a Side by Side Migration , Which Involves Specifying Source Hierarchy , Migrating Collections , Packages , OS Images , Etc .

Very First step is to Specify the Source Hierarchy on the SCCM 2012 Central Site . For this  you Need Access to Account which has read Access to Objects in SCCM 2007 Environment and Server .

  1. At the moment I’m also trying to migrate our sccm 2007 environment to sccm 2012 R2. We have the problem that our software uninstall collections are build with a query wich points on a install collection. Unfortunaly SCCM is unable to migrate a collection like that… Do you know a solution to migrate these collections also?

    1. Error Message during Migration: The rule may be based on a Hardware Inventory class not collected at the destination, or be based on a ConfigMgr extension which is not present at the destination, or refers to a collection class like “SMS_CM_RES_COLL_”.
