Hello, i just installed a clean SCCM2012 Central Site Server as "Stand Alone".

My question is, can i later on add one or more Primay Sites to this hierarchy, or must i reinstall the Central site and choose "join the Site Server to an existing hierarchy"?

Regards

You cannot add primary sites to this hierarchy - you can add child sites to it.

I better explain what im after!

I will soon have the need to install a SCCM2012 hierarchy. At the top i need a central site who will administer about 800 clients. Then under that, i want to give several branch offices the option to administrate theire own clients (aprox 400 pers site).But i still want the central site to have the ability publish/update/revoke stuff on all clients, even those on the primay sites.

Iirc i need a central site and a few primary sites to do this. My first question is , how i will install the first "server" (central site) to able to add primary sites later on.

Cheers

Nvm, i just found what i was looking for!

I was a bit missguided =)

Central Site only administers primary sites.
In my case it need a central site on top to administer the other sites, then one primay site for my "local" clients, and three more primary sites for the other branch office clients.

You can add other primary sites, but you won't be able to add the central site to any other hierarchy (which you don't need to do as per your thoughts).

You can go on adding child (primary / secondary) sites to this central site - but central is the supreme site and wouldn't be able to participate in any other hierarchy as a stand alone site.

You are on the right track.
