Posted on 2009-04-30

Hi Everyone,
I have two W2K3 R2 domain controllers (PDC/BDC) that also serves as DNS servers.   I want to install an SCCM 2007 server on a W2K8 server.  I have no clue on how to do this.  Does the SCCM box have to be a DC?  Must it also be a DNS server?  I have it running as my DHCP server right now.  I have setup IIS 7 on it with BITs and all that.  i have downloaded the SQL 2005 that comes with it.  i'm not sure what to do.  i don't want to mess up AD.  so, if someone will please help me with the setup, i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Accepted Solution

    No it will not mess AD. SCCM does not have to a DC or DNS
    Use SQL 2005 with SP2
    For installing site system roles on windows 2008, you need to modify settings in IIS

    anub is right - but just to add a bit more clarification... not only does SCCM not have to go on a DC/DNS box, it is strongly recommended that it does not go on a DC/DNS server... your SCCM box should preferably be dedicated.
    I will disagree with the SQL comment though - no reason to use SQL 2005 over SQL 2008 - especially considering -
