Why aren't you going to Windows 2016 and SQL 2017?  Why use old versions of those software?

My Apologize,

Let me Explain..

image.png.5b27cd1ab63ea8df06dae47dee355a59.png

As - IS Infra:

SCCM 2012 SP2 with OSD, Application Deployment, Patch Management for Windows 7 SP1. With Single Standalone Primary Site and SQL On Same Server

SCCM 2012 SP2 is installed with Windows Server 2008 SP1 STD and SQL 2008 STD

Windows 10 ADK  - 10.0.26624

Distribution Points - 20 + Across All location With Windows Server 2008 SP1 Standard

Planned Infra:

We are looking further to upgrade the Operating System (Client OS) from Windows 7 to Windows 10 V1709

In order to that, We need to upgrade the SCCM Infrastructure.

Hence, As per the Plan Phase I:

SCCM 2012 SP2 to SCCM CB V1606

Steps :

1. Retaining Windows Server 2008 On Primary Site and DP's

2. Performing SQL SP3 Update on SQL 2008 STD

3. Performing SCCM Upgrade from SCCM 2012 SP2 to SCCM CB V1606 using Baseline version

4.Installation of SCCM Client on all end Points

Now the Infrastructure will be upgraded from SCCM 2012 SP2 to SCCM CB V1606

As per the Plan Phase II: (This is to Support both Windows 7 and Windows 10 V1709 Client Operating System)

SCCM CB V1606 to SCCM CB V1710

1. Upgrading the Primary Site Operating System from Windows Server 2008 SP1 to Windows Server 2012 

2. Upgrading the SQL Server from SQL 2008 SP3 to SQL 2012 SP4

3. Uninstalling the OLD Windows 10 ADK and Install the new Windows 10 ADK (10.1.16299)

4. Uninstalling the WSUS/SUP Role and Reinstalling it again on Windows Server 2012 

5. Running the CB Upgrade from SCCM CBV1606 to CBV1710

6. Installing SCCM Client CB V1710 on Windows 7 SP1 Computers

7. Preparation of Windows 10 Operating System in the Environment

Finally the Infrastructure with Windows 7 and Windows 10 OS, for Application Management, Patch Management, OS Deployment, Imaging., etc.,

I Would like to get the inputs from you Please.

I would never support Not going to Windows 2016.  Why would you start with an OS that is already  6 years old and only has 4 more years of life! What a huge waste of time.

Absolutely, You are rite. Based on your approach, rather than going with Migration, can go for the new implementation and also manage both OS Versions (Windows 7 and Windows 10)

Slightly, I can move all the Existing Clients from Old Infrastructure to New Infrastructure

I will also think in this aspect.

AS-Infra:

SCCM 2012 SP2 with OSD, Application Deployment, Patch Management for Windows 7 SP1. With Single Standalone Primary Site and SQL On Same Server

SCCM 2012 SP2 is installed with Windows Server 2008 SP1 STD and SQL 2008 STD

Windows 10 ADK  - 10.0.26624

Distribution Points - 20 + Across All location With Windows Server 2008 SP1 Standard

SCCM Infra Site Code : 123

To-BE Infra:

Single Standalone Primary Site with Operating System - Windows Server 2016

SQL Server - SQL Server 2014 SP2

ADK - Windows 10 ADK to Support (Version : 10.1.162990) for Windows 10 V1709 Environment

System Center Configuration Manager Baseline Version - SCCM CB V1710 (Site Code : 456)

Now, I will be having the Infrastructure with SCCM 2012 SP2 (Which is supporting for Windows 7) and SCCM CB V1709 (To Support both Windows 7 and Windows 10 Operating System)

Let us assume that, Do I get chance to move all the Clients from SCCM 2012 SP2 to SCCM CB V1710 (Which is from Site Code: 123 to 456)

Based on this, I can migrate all the Existing Windows 7 Client Operating System (Site Code : 123 to New Infra Site Code : 456)

I can use the Option "Client Push Installation" account and also the Boundary Group for Site Assignment.

Do you think, Is this Okay?
