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:
One System Center Configuration Manager Server 2007 R3 with SP2 (database will need to live on our SQL cluster, HOSTNAME: SQL1)
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!
