using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager - Part 1. Installation - CAS

Recommended Posts

Please let people know that adding WEBDAV during prereq installation can really trigger "world problems"

 

I had huge problems replicating contents between CAS and PRI. Almost gave up.... :wacko:

 

Removing the role service did the trick :D

Can you please go through how you setup the networking in Hyper-V? I simply cannot get PXE boot to work using my current settings (using Private network for my DC and SCCM box). Are you assigning static IP addresses to these machines?

Hi Root Admin, Thanks for the excellent work. The guide is a very detailed one covering even the minute steps. But I am confused with the following.

 

Create AD users:

Note: Perform the following on the Active Directory Domain Controller server (AD1) as Local Administrator

 

In addition I created some accounts in AD, namely:

 

* SMSadmin, a domain user

* Testuser, a domain user

* Testuser2, a domain user

* Testuser3, a domain user

* DomJoin, a domain user,(for joining computers to the domain)

* ReportsUser, a domain user for reporting services.

* ClientInstall, a domain user used when installing the Configuration Manager Client for Client Push. This user must be a local administrator on computers you want to install the Configuration Manager Client.

* SCCMNAA, a domain user, (Network Access Account) used during OSD

(What do you exactly mean by saying that Perform on AD DC as Local Administrator? How can we create domain accounts in AD by logging in as Local Admin. Please can you clarify )

 

Create Local Administrator accounts:

Note: Perform the following on the SCCM 2012 server as Local Administrator

 

On both the CAS and P01 ConfigMgr servers add the SMSadmin and ClientInstall users to the Local Administrators group.

(Here it is clear. We have to add the domain account SMSadmin & ClientInstall to the local administrator group on CAS & P01)

 

Waiting to hear from you soon.

 

Thanks

i mean logon to your active directory domain controller using a user account that has Administrative permissions on the server, that can be any user that is a member of the builtin Administrators group on that domain controller, so you can login as Administrator or a domain admin or any user as long as they are in the local administrator group (on the DC)

Just hope this helps anyone with the SQL failed pre requisite problem.

The prerequisite seems to only want to connect to the sql server with the default instance name of MSSQLSERVER, if you have called the instance something else or are trying to connect to another SQL Server then the prerequisites will fail for SQL Server and service name.

PreReq will only accept the local server for the SQL Server and MSSQLSERVER for the instance name.

 

As i say I hope this helps anyone.

Great instructions, working for the standards.

1# Question is: Someone succedded not installing SCCM12 into "Default Web Site" but a different one (also listening http:80)?

(Ours is disabled and replaced by a new corporate site)

2# Question is: Application Catalog Web Site can be installed into another site - listening to http:80 or a different port?

good question, take a look at this info from Technet:-

 

Site System Roles That Can Use Custom Websites

 

The following Configuration Manager site system roles require IIS and use the default or custom website on the site system server:

  • Application Catalog web service point
  • Application Catalog website point
  • Distribution point
  • Enrollment point
  • Enrollment proxy point
  • Fallback status point
  • Management point
  • Software update point
  • State migration point

 

clear.gif Custom Website Ports

 

When you create a custom website, you must assign port numbers to the custom website that differ from the port numbers that the default website uses. The default website and the custom website cannot run at the same time if both sites are configured to use the same TCP/IP ports.

 

After the site system roles are reinstalled, verify that the TCP/IP ports configured in IIS for the custom website match the client request ports for the site.

For information about how to configure ports for client communication, see How to Configure Client Communication Port Numbers in Configuration Manager.

I am confused as to why you have to open ports 1433 and 4022 on every client on the network? I thought that all outbound traffic from clients even if the firewall is switched on will not need this port open as all outbound traffic is allowed by default? Am i missing something?

 

Many Thanks

good point

it's not for every client, it's just for the Configuration Manager servers to replicate data between each other - I've edited the post to clear that up and suggested that you target the GPO to an OU where you've placed your Configuration Manager servers.

I have problem to install the SCCM 2012, I followed this guide (but I used SQL Server 2012 instead of 2008), I have following errors (See the screen shots) . As far as collation is concerned I selected (it was pre-selected) the correct collation.‪M:\SQL-RunningAccount.png‪M:\SQL-Server-Collation.png‪M:\SQL-SysAdmin.png

Hi,

Sorry for the screenshot, please have a look on the DropBox link:

https://www.dropbox....e/Install+Setup

I am using

ConfigMgr_SCEP_2012_RTM_INTL_7711

for SQL Server Collation I am sure I have (pre-selected) SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

 

Note:

Before I run the SQL setup and SCCM 2012 setup, I have installed the ADK and SQL Server instance has been creatred for the ADK, but when I installed the SQL Server 2012, I completly created a new SQL instance with name "MSSQLSERVER"

Since your link requires a DropBox login, it would be best just to post your screen shots here. When you reply, click the "More Reply Options" located near the bottom right. It should take you to another screen.

Before I run the SQL setup and SCCM 2012 setup, I have installed the ADK and SQL Server instance has been creatred for the ADK, but when I installed the SQL Server 2012, I completly created a new SQL instance with name "MSSQLSERVER"

 

A SQL server instance is needed for Windows ADK?? (not too sure about this)

 

The 1st instance(default) will be MSSQLSERVER in a SQL setup.

 

To check which collation you have configured your DB engine with follow these simple instructions:

http://msdn.microsof...y/hh230914.aspx

 

 

If it is not SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS then you can follow this guide to change the collation:

http://andysal.wordp...server-2008-r2/

 

I had a similar problem when I tried installing SCCM 2012 on Server 2012 and SQL BI 2012(testing environment...not supported). I did run the above command and it did change the collation but SCCM pre-reqs failed continuously. I changed the SQL edition to Enterprise with CU2 and it worked seemlessly!!

 

Which edition are you using and have you installed any SQL CU for SQL 2012?

You did a fantastic job on this guide! I would recomend review of this document to anyone installing or just getting familiar with SCCM2012. You provided basic detailed instruction with enough extra commentary so that the reader can easily understand what is really going on and learn the app.

 

Thank you for taking the time to put this together.

Hi, I'm moving from a 2007 environment with one Primary and one secondary site server, each in a east/west datacenter. We then have a Distro Point in each of our 12 offices for local package caching, and boundaries set so east servers are in one site and west in the other. Can I mirror this design in 2012 or do I need a CAS in front of the Primary. Everything I have read about building a Standalone Primary doesn't mention if you can add Secondary Site servers beneath it.



Also, what data is stored within the Secondary Site SQL database? Everything I read says it does indeed participate in Database Replication, but doesn't say what specifically is being replicated. I am trying to decide if I should give it a real (off box) SQL server or be lazy and go with SQL Express.



Thanks,

yes you can have a standalone primary with secondaries underneath (and no CAS) however do you really need secondaries see this for more details, you can have 250 secondaries under one primary.

Hi anyweb,

 

During the installation of SCCM 2012 SP1 with SQL 2012 SP1 and Windows 2012 Server I got the error message by Database Information" follow error message:

 



---------------------------
Setup is unable to connect to SQL Server with the connection information provided. Verify the following:



. The SQL Server and instance names are entered correctly

. The specified SQL Server instance is not configured to use dynamic ports

. If a firewall is enabled on the SQL Server, inbound rules exist to allow connections to the correct ports

. The account used to run Setup has permissions to connect to the specified SQL Server instance
---------------------------

Do you have any Idea?

 

Best regards

 

Keywan
