I have an SCCM 2007 SP2 server running on windows server 2003 server standard SP2.  It is configured with the site database running on a separate SQL 2005 server.  I would like to migrate the SCCM site server to a Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 server.  If possible I would like to keep the server name and site name the same.  But I could use a new server name as long as the site name stays the same.  What would be the best way of accomplishing this?  Thanks

This is possible.
1.You will first need to first backup your SCCM site. Make sure the backup is good by checking the logs.

2.You will need to rename the existing site server so that you can give the same name to the new site server-to-be. (the name has to be the same).

3.Remove/Delete the SMS entries published in the Active Directory under the System\System Management container.

3. Install SCCM 2007 on the new server with the same site code.

4.Now restore the backup you had taken. You will have the everything that you had on your SMS 2003 server.

5.If there is any issue, You can still revert back to your old server and restore the backup on that. Be very sure of having a good backup/s. Changes made after the backup was taken will be lost.
