[SCCM 2012 SP1 beta] How can we tell from the registry whether it's a primary SCCM server or just a SCCM console?

Recommended Posts


Hi, all

In version of SCCM 2012, We just to check the register path like below, it works as we expected.

//if it is a primary site. the register path exists

GetSafeRegistryStringValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", @"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Setup", "Installation Directory")

//if it is a console only. after above register path check fail, we need to verify the following. If exists, it should be a console

GetSafeRegistryStringValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", @"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ConfigMgr10\Setup", "UI Installation Directory")

but in the version of SCCM 2012 SP1 beta, when we check on a console only server, we find the following path exists!! As

we expected, it should not be exist on a console only server, but in primary server.

GetSafeRegistryStringValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", @"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Setup", "Installation Directory")

Could anyone help me to figure out how could I check the register path to tell which is SCCM server and which is just a console server?
