Is there a way to build another node and then make it the primary site server (from RTM to R3)?
Is it a wise plan?

I would like to:
Desired outcome:
One System Center Configuration Manager Server 2007 R3 with SP2 (database will need to live on our SQL cluster, HOSTNAME: SQL1)
HOSTNAME: SCCM1

Current Environment:
--------------------------
One Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007
HOSTNAME: APP2 (Current Primary Site)
Current Version: SCCM 2007 RTM  (all windows patches patched)
Current SCCM Database lives on a non-clustered SQL server (Current SQL HOSTNAME: SQL4)

I would like to end up with a completely (just one server and one database)separate server and move the existing database to our SQL cluster.

Should I upgrade to R2, R3 first?
then move the database to the cluster?
build new server in parallel?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated and thank you for your time in advance!

I think it's not required to upgrade to R2 or R3 before move database to cluster but I prefer to keep your environment up to date and upgrade your site server to SP2 and install R3.

For your reference:

Note: Configuration Manager 2007 does support moving the site database from a remote SQL Server to the local site server computer if the site server computer is running a supported version of Microsoft SQL Server.

a-Jaleel  thank you for your response!

I should have been more clear in my question.
 I am looking for the series of steps I should take to achieve my desired outcome.

I know how to move the database as I have done this once before.  I just need a strategy with specific steps on bringing another config manager server online while decommissioning another.
Are there RMS root management servers as there is in SCOM?

Thanks again!
