Hey All !!
As we all know that With SCCM 2012 SP1 , we can add a Central Site on top of a Stand Alone Primary Site . Well !! Well !! This was not there in SCCM 2012 Without SP1 🙂
In this Lab We have used the following scenario:
1. We have a SCCM Stand Alone Primary Site .
2. We will be Adding a Central Site ( Installing it First ) to this Stand Alone Primary Site .
Let us First have a look at the Primary Site and See if it actually is a Stand Alone Primary Site :
The Above Snap shot is of Data Base Replication in the Administrative Console which shows that there is No other Site Available Instead of Primary Site .
Now , Before we start with the set up of the Central Site , we need to give Full Control to the Central Site Computer and all its Defendants :
The below screen shots do this for us :
Now , Start the SCCM Central Site Installation . Click the executable file :
Check , Install a SCCM Central Administration Site :
Add , the Key if you have one , Else USe Evaluation Version :
Accept the Agreement
If you have downloaded the Files then you may give the path else you may download them :
SCCM Will start to check the files :
This is a time consuming process and may take a lot of time
Give Appropriate Names here :
This is an Important step , as you need to mention that this installation should be a part of Earlier installation and not the first installation
Give SQL Server Name and other details :
Give Appropriate Name :
Check the Log File: configmgr.setup and the last line will show the status
Now , Login into the SCCM Central Site and Go to Hierarchy and you will see some thing like this :
Subsequent posts will show how to migrate objects :
One Important thing : If you go to temp file while installing SCCM , you will see configmgrautosave file there . This file Actually has the tasks that are to be done and the way you want to do it . If you want your Installation to be scheduled with some of parameters , then you may give them in the INi file and have your installation as zero touch .
