One the destination hierarchy is ready, use SCCM console to migrate the data from source hierarchy to destination hierarchy by following process.
The process is mostly the same when migrating SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 or Migrating from SCCM 2012 to SCCM 1511 (Current Branch).
Object Migration Prerequisites:
- Install and Configure SCCM 1511
- Backup the database for existing 2012 environment
- Make sure you have appropriate rights on the source hierarchy and destination hierarchy
Setting up source hierarchy:
Open SCCM console on the destination hierarchy (SCCB 1511), then go to Administration/ Migration
Expand the Migration node and click on Source hierarchy then choose Specify Source Hierarchy;
On specify source hierarchy,
Enter existing top level site server (CAS or Primary) of the source hierarchy server details on Specify the top-level configuration manager primary site to migrate to this hierarchy
Enter source site access account and source database access account. This account needs SCCM admin access.
We can test the access rights by verify option;
Once all the information is entered, the specify source hierarchy window will look as below;
As soon as we click on OK, the data gathering will start the gathering process.
Click on Close, Once the data gathering is completed;
Next step is creating a migration job. Before performing the actual migration, we need to create migration job.
Open SCCM console in SCCB 1511 then go to Administration/ Migration then Right click on Migration Jobs then choose Create Migration Job;
On the General tab of Create Migration Job Wizard window, provide a name and select Object Migration in the Job Type from the drop down then click next;
Select objects that you want to migrate on the Select Objects tab then click next;
On the Content Ownership tab select new site under destination site to assign all the rights to the new site then click Next;
If required, add new site code (SCCB 1511) on the destination site code On the Site Code Replacement tab then click next;
On the Security Scope tab specify the security scope to apply to the migrated objects then click next;
On the Settings tab;
- Specify the Schedule to run the migration job
- Conflict resolution action for already migrated objects
Review all the settings on the summary page, then click next;
Click Close on the completion tab to exist the wizard;
Based on the chosen schedule, the migration job will start and job status can be view in SCCB 1511 console under Administration / Migration / Migration Jobs
As the job progresses, we can see the object will populate in SCCB 1511 console.
When all objects are migrated to the new hierarchy, before start decommissioning old environment;
- Validate that all clients are reporting to the new site and healthy and active
- All the applicable data is available and accessible
- Distribution Points are migrated to the new hierarchy and no longer required for the content
Once the validation is completed successfully start post migration clean-up activities by stopping gathering data from the source site.
In the SCCM Console, go to Administration / Migration / Source Hierarchy\Administration\Overview\Migration
Click on Clean up migration data then select the source hierarchy;
Click Yes to confirm to delete the migration history;
Once the clean-up migration is complete, there will not be any information available under the Migration node in SCCM console.
Now we can turn off the old SCCM hierarchy.
