Report How can I install System Center Configuration Manager version 1702 (Current Branch) on Windows Server 2016 with SQL 2016 in System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) Posted July 28, 2017 On 5/5/2017 at 8:10 AM, Jeff May-Stahl said: Hi Niall, I have a quick question. We have been using SCCM 2012 for years. I did not set it up originally and am not happy with some of the decisions that were made so I am "upgrading" to 1702, Server 16, SQL 16 but am setting it up from scratch rather than doing a true upgrade. My question would be do I still need to do the Active Directory steps or is that already done from 2012? I guess what I am really asking is, is there anything I should watch out for when spinning up a new server with new a sccm installation and using it in an environment that already had 2012 running? Hi Jeff, I'm in a similar situation where I just joined a new company and have to upgrade the existing 2012 RTM environment and I'm thinking it's going to be easier to set up a new 1702 installation from scratch rather than upgrading multiple times. Did you run into any issues standing up a new instance of SCCM with an existing, like using the same System Management container, etc? Or anyone else who may have been through this/have knowledge to share on the process? Thanks!
