I’m looking for instructions and expert opinion on how to install Microsoft System Center Configuratio Manager 2012.  We just recently purchased System Center and now I need to install all of its components.  We have approx. 30 servers and I need to know how many servers I will need for SCCM and what components to install on each server.  I understand each environment is different but I’ll try and spell out exactly what I have and hopefully you can make some recommendations  and not just links to Microsoft’s web site.

We have 3 offices ( 100 users in the main office, 20 in remote office “A” and 6 users in remote office “B”
All of our Servers are Virtualized and in one central office.
The offices are connected using an MPLS network with about 20 Mb between each office.

We have about 30 Servers
They are a mix of Server 2003 (32 bit) and Server 2008 (64 bit )
We have 6 Citrix XenApp 6.5 Servers
We have 4 Domain Controllers ( 2 in the main site and and 1 at each remote site )
We have a few file servers
We have 1 Print server
We have 6 SQL servers
We have 1 Exchange 2007 Server

I’m thinking of installing SCCM on SERVER 2012

If anyone has some detailed instructions that would be great.

SCCM 2012 Guide

To go into detail on here is not realistic as the information needed is vast depending on your setup.

But I can at least get you in the right direction. I put a link above that I have used when installing and configuring SCCM 2012 in my lab and production.

You Central Location will need a CAS (Central Administration Site) on 1 Server, Install a Primary Site at same location on another server, for the 2 off-site locations you will install a Secondary Site Server.

They will contact the CAS for any changes, updates, etc. and push out to the Machines at that location. And it gives you the setup for any expansion in the company if/when that occurs.

You are going to want to setup several SCCM Accounts:
SCCM Admin account - Access to AD, etc.
SCCM Client install account - This should be setup as a local administrator on local machines so I can install software, SCCM Client, etc.
SCCM Reporting Account - This is for access to the out of box or custom built reports.

Think there might be 1-2 others but that is all I really needed to use.

You are going to want at least SQL Server 2008 R2 on the server.


Like I said this is going to be very complexed for your setup and I advise you do this in phases and test all the functions prior to moving to next phase.
