SCCM 2007 migration path to SCCM 2012 - 32bit/x64 question

Recommended Posts

Hello,

If my current SCCM 2007 R2 is installed on a 32bit Windows Server 2003, and I plan on migrating to SCCM 2012 on Server 2008 R2 x64, will there be any problems with the migration process going from a 32bit to 64bit environment?

The reason I ask is that I read in a forum post somewhere that an admin in a similar situation did the following steps: performed a full backup of SCCM 2007 running on W2K3 32bit, reinstalled SCCM 2007 on a different server running W2K8 x64 and restored from that backup he made essentially creating a mirrored install but on a x64 OS instead, they then installed SCCM 2012 on the new production server (also W2K8 x64) and finally went into the standard migration steps.

This seemed rather convoluted to me, and I found no other posts that claimed there was any need to first mirror your SCCM 2007 from a 32 to a 64bit environment before attempting a full migration to SCCM 2012.

Thanks in advance,

T

Hi, There is no need to migrate the SCCM 2007 site to a x64 plattform before migrating to SCCM 2012. As there is no inplace upgrade available, you will need to use the Migration Connector and it doesn't matter if the SCCM 2007 site runs x86 or x64 SQl or OS

Thank you. Should I upgrade my SCCM 2007 to R3 prior to using the migration connector? Or does that not matter?
