Side By Side Migration (2007 - 2012)

Recommended Posts

I have been playing with the side by side migration tool in sccm 2012 and have a few questions.


I built a test lab (lab.local

1X DC - win2008r2 running dhcp and dns

1X sccm 2007 sp2 r3 server

1X sccm 2012 r2 server


I then went and configured sccm 2007 to do the following, which all work fine

OSD , build, capture, patch at build

Application delivery (single flash player application)


Then built an sccm 2012r2 server (local sql etc)


Ran the migration tool and specified the source hierarchy.


This all worked well, found items to migrate etc.


I then migrated various test bits, boundary, collection, and package.


I noticed my package had migrated by the package source was still located on the sccm 2007 server.

If I were to decommission the sccm 2007 server, this would then break.


Do I need to manually recreate a package source, manually populate (copy) the source files / applications / packages across. - Then migrate and manually adjust the package source on the sccm 2012 server to point to the new package source and redistribute ?


Any experience or pointers would be nice, as the tool itself looks to be really useful.


Just wondering if I have missed something ??


Any pointers appreciated !
