It’s been a while since a post, I have been really busy recently with the Cloud OS Community events and some Inframon events recently, as well as the usual work with customers. As we get to the end of life in terms of ConfigMgr 2007, one thing that is coming more common is the requirement to migrate from ConfigMgr 2007 to ConfigMgr 2012. I have noticed lots of problems customers have experienced when trying to install site system roles on servers which used to have a ConfigMgr 2007 client installed. Here is my cleanup process.
Lots has been made about the new way in which Configuration Manager replicates it’s data. It is much more efficient at replicating data between sites, one main reason for this is that we now use native functionality within SQL Server to perform this replication.
It’s the million dollar question for all companies who are lucky (or lucky) enough to potentially have a need for a secondary site, do I need a secondary site? In this post I want to walk through the pros and cons between having a secondary site, not having a secondary site and share some tips for when they are required.
