regarding step "Step 4. Delegate Permission to the System Management Container"

Is there any MS/Technet documentation about this delegation? I coudn't find any (looking in the SCCM2012 docs)

 

Any reference you can point me to?

Hello - I am currently running 2007 on my domain, and I am getting ready to install 2012. I previously delegated permission to the system management container in 2007. I am planning to run side-by-side for the next month or two. If I Delegate Permission to the System Management Container for 2012, what does that do to 2007? I don't even know if it is possible, but if I delegate to my new 2012 server, will that cause a bunch of problems?

Thanks for your help,

Murf

Assuming you will use different servername and sitecode, it will just write it's atributes next to the existing ones. About what it does to your (overlapping) boundaries, you might like this post: http://www.petervanderwoude.nl/post/overlapping-boundaries-and-configmgr-2012/

Thank you Peter. That was exactly what I needed.

 

Next question...

I will be installing the CAS because in the future I will have multiple campuses that will need primary sites. Do I delegate control of the system management container to the CAS server? I have read in plenty of places that the CAS does not manage clients, so I'm a little confused on this point.

Thanks again for your help!

EDIT - Just found this in the original post. Note: Repeat the above for Each site server that you install in a Hierarchy.

Is it possible to use one sql server for both the CAS and Primary Server at one physical location...ie our headquarters wants to use an existing sql server to host both the instances for the CAS and the primary site.

I'm currently using SCCM 2007 with one primary site and 12 secondary sites at my remote locations. These locations don't need to do anything in SCCM, they just add computers to AD groups for software installation. When upgrading to SCCM 2012, should I keep the same structure or should I have a CAS?

Is this a good guide to follow for a side-by-side upgrade from SCCM 2007 to 2012 RTM? Thanks for your help. As always, awesome guides!

Required SQL Server Collation

 

Hi Everyone, i'm trying to install the latest release of cm on my existing sql server, but the setup keeps failing with the "Required SQL Server Collation:

Configuration Manager requires that you configure your SQL Server instance and Configuration Manager site database (if already present) to use the SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS collation, unless you are using a Chinese operating system and require GB18030 support. For information about changing your SQL Server instance and database collations, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=234541. For information about enabling GB18030 support, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=234542."

 

anyway to fix this without altering the language of the entire server?

You login to the machine you want to add the account to, then you ad the account to the administrators group on that machine.

Yes I know but i want to do that automaticly when it installs a new machine with Sccm.

then script it,. add a Run Command Line step in your task sequence to do as follows:-

 

cmd /c net localgroup "Administrators" domain\%USERNAME%" /add

 

%USERNAME% is a variable but you can hard code it

Firstly, I must say I appreciate your clear and concise guides but I have one question regarding this one.

 

Why is it that I should put my SQL install in D:\Program Files ? Why is it that C:\Program Files won't do? If it's a question of storage space, approximately how much should I compensate with to be able to put the SQL install at it's default location (C:)?

D:\ is just a suggestion, you can put it wherever you want, but seeing as most people frequently run out of space on C:\ due to poor planning i'd suggest another drive letter other than C:\, also SQL is IO intensive (disk read/write) and if possible you should try and install on it's own hard disc.

 

Also you don't want to mix SQL or other programs (Configuration Manager) with the operating system, think about performance ..

Hi!

 

Is sql 2012 supported with final (RTM) Version of sccm 2012?

 

regards

 

EDIT:

 

Tried to install one hyper-v machine with sql2012 and one with sccm2012. (both in the domain) and cannot install sccm

 

Have the same error like here:

 

http://www.configurationmanager2012.com/Configuration-Manager-02.html

 

what to do?

 

 

Have no "new" option described here:

 

*** Create a SSL certificate and assign it to the SQL Network properties!

In the CA (Certificate Authority MMC snap-in) right click Cert Template container and select "Manage"

For this I duplicated a new certificate template from the computer cert

(Name appropriately: Example = SCCM SQL Cert)

(I recommend the validity period increased and allow private key to be exported)

(Change to just server Authentication)

(Subject Name from DNS)

(On the security TAB, add the SQL server computer object)

(On the security TAB, add an AD account object that will make the request)

 

In the CA (Certificate Authority MMC snap-in) right click Cert Template container and select "New" / Certificate Template to issue and select the newly created template.

Reboot the CA (This will make the template available to all machines in the domain immediately)

Login to the SQL server (with the account you specified on the template security TAB), open the Computer Certificate Snap-in and request a new certificate selecting the newly created cert template (SCCM SQL Cert)

Once this is done you can now specify this certificate on the SQL Networking properties.

no, SQL Server 2012 is not yet supported so don't use it until it is. The supported versions of SQL Server are listed in my Configuration Manager 2012 RTM guide here.
