SCCM 2012 R2 Step by Step Installation Guide


Check out my new SCCM 1511 step by step guide

SCCM 2012 R2 – Step by Step Installation Guide

The following guide will take you through the installation of SCCM 2012 R2 with a simple Primary Server approach and with the SQL server located on the same device. It assumes that no earlier version of SCCM is installed in the Active Directory domain it is being installed into.

Before installing SCCM 2012 R2 you will need to run through some prep work to get the Active Directory configured and extended, along with some application and role/feature installs

Prepare Active Directory for Configuration Manager

Create the System Management Container in AD

Connect to a domain controller and load ADSI Edit. Under the System OU create a new Object.

R201

Choose Container and click Next.

R202

Enter the name System Management and click Next.

R203

Complete the wizard and close ADSIEdit.

Delegate control to the SCCM site server to the newly created container in AD Users and Computers. Create a custom task to delegate and choose ‘This folder, existing objects in this folder and creation of new objects in this folder’

R204

R205

Check all Permission boxes and complete the wizard

R205a

Extend the Schema

From the SCCM 2012 media copy the \SMSSetup\Bin\x64\ folder to a Domain Controller holding the Schema Master Role. Ensure the account used is a member of the Schema Admins group in AD.  Right click the Extadsch.exe and choose ‘Run as Administrator ‘.

R206

A log file ‘ExtADSch.log’ will be generated on the root of the C: Drive. Check for the entry ‘Successfully extended the Active Directory schema.’

<01-01-2014 21:25:22> Successfully extended the Active Directory schema.

To check what Extadsch.exe is doing to the Active Directory then open up the file ConfigMgr_ad_schema.ldf that is located in the same folder.

Install Site Server Prerequisites

The following roles and features need to be installed onto the SCCM Site Server prior to installation:

  1. Hi,

    I am planning to work out a project regarding SCCM 2012 R2. I just want to know your inputs with my plans given my current scenario. So here it is: Our company has an Head Office with more than 50 employees and we have more than 400 branches located in different places (in a single country only) with ONE employees every branches. I am planning to roll-out SCCM to provide configurations, deployments, application/software patches and upgrades, and OS upgrades remotely to those endpoint clients located in our branches from the head office. I know that, it will not be cost-effective if I’m gonna implement distri point from different locations so I tried to find a more suitable plan for my case. I found out that Azure can be used as “cloud-based distribution point”. So I’m gonna try this in a test environment if this can fit with my scenario. However, I would still love to hear comments/suggestions/recommendations from an expert like you. What do you think could be the best solution for my scenario?

    I look forward to hear a feedback from you.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards,

    Red

    1. Red,

      It’s not an easy decision to make. Bear in mind that cloud based DP’s are limited in functionality to an on-prem DP. They don’t support Windows Updates for example so you won’t be able to patch the devices that connect to these DP’s.

  2. hi
    can you please help as I don’t see Operating system Installer in my SCCM 2012 R2 instead I see Operating system upgrade package option

    any idea? please let me know.

    regards.

    SS

  3. i have issue . I install sql server on the Domain controller and SCCM server on an other pc which is join with domain. but it say setup is unable to connect to the SQL server
    and also what will be the FQDN name of SQL server

    and W2k12-2 is the SCCM server
    please help

  4. hi problem which im facing is first i test sccm on my laptop in home and it work ok. now in my workplace server i on adk and start installing features by it is very very slow 4 hours and 1% complete . it is installing winPE … but on my home laptop this feature is installed is there a way i can transfer it to my usb and then past to work place server .

      1. thanks sir, one more shoot…tell me the difference deployment kit for 8.1 and for 10 .and also tell me if i install 8.1 then on windows 10 software not work???

      2. ADK 10 supports Windows 10 builds but be aware that only certain versions of ADK 10 are supported in SCCM 2012. ADK up to 1511 is supported. Also Windows 10 1511 is supported but not 1607

      3. and also tell me the difference in sql 2012 and 2014 ? is SQL 2012 will work fine with server 2012 r2 and SCCM? thanks again

  5. I monitored the SCCM servers with SCOM.
    I have a guy who want to made some tune-up on our SCCM servers during the week-end and he don’t want, during this time, to get a lot of alerts from SCOM.

    He don’t want also to put the server in maintenance mode in SCOM. He just want to stop the SCCM services.

    Can we just “turn off” (and restart it after the tune-ups) services on SCCM server to prevent these alerts?

    If yes, what are theses services?

    Thank You

  6. hello, i m getting problem when i go for client push means( configure client installation setting )every check is hide out and it says applied to windows operating system only , you can download client for additional operating systems from microsoft download centre

  7. Hi SCCMentor.First of all I would like your work.

      4. boundries were the problem. now i want to deploy endpoint security with bitdefender but if my clients have already install antivirus like avast, avira ,etc … how could they be deleted automatically?

      5. If Defender can’t automatically uninstall it then you will need to create an uninstall application or package yourself to remove the software

      6. sir i could not understand (client push account with local admin) who will be local admin in domain and how could i deploy it?please help

      7. You need to specify a local admin of your desktops. You can use GPO to add in a domain account into your local admin group on devices. Or you can use an existing local administrator account.

  9. Dear sir, i am installing SCCM 2012 r2, all prerequisites are complete, but at the end of installation i get this error ” Setup cannot create Database in SQL SERCER “.

  10. HI SIR,
    I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT PUSH INSTALLATION IS THERE ANY MATERIAL FOR THAT.
    PLEASE LINK THE PATH

  11. I am installing an offline SCCM 2012R2 with SQL 2014 SP1, server has no internet connectivity. I mounted the ISO on the server and copy the files to the local drive. I downloaded the SCCM updates from another online 2012R2 server. Additionally, I added the prereqcore.dll and the setupcore.dll hotfix updated files to support SQL 2014 SP1. The error I am receiving is “Invalid prerequisite component path specified” soon after the installation begins. The log states ” Error: Wrong manifest version $$. This error is not after selecting to use previously downloaded files, it happens at the end, after I click Begin Installation. Any ideas?

  12. There are 59 files for the SCCM updates in the internet connected server, and I moved all 59 to the disconnected server. First time I downloaded them from a Win10 PC, and now I tried it from a 2012R2 server.

  13. ConfigMgrSetup – INFO: Extracted file C:\users\user\local\temp\configMgr.Manifest.XML
    – ERROR: Wrong manifest version %%

    ConfigMgrSetupWizard – Verbose: 1: Report failure callback. Failure 86.
    Verbose: 1:Received error [Invalid prerequisite component path specified.]

    The other lines are just INFO or skipped

  14. hello, i am having a problem while install sccm, error is (“Fail to create SQL Server Certificate, ConfigMgr installation cannot be completed. Click the View Log button for more information”)

      1. hi , if i have configured SCCM server but in some way. if my sccm server crashes and if i install it newly . then i should have to change my site code or any thing in My Domain . can is choose previous site code and new installation of SCCM server in the same domain make any duplication in the domain???

      2. You need to backup your site server either via Maintenance Task or SQL backup and then you can restore. The server you restore to must have the same hostname and you will use the same site code when you restore. The disk configuration should match the original site server. If you are not restoring then you need to create a new site server, I would recommend not using the same site code however if you remove entries in the System Management container that relate to the old site then you should be OK. I can’t see why you should bother using same site code though. Just create a new one then you know for sure that you won’t have issues doing this.

      3. and also if i install adk for windows 10 then i just only can deploy windows 10 or windows 7,and windows could also be deployed with it??

      4. and if i have install sql 2012 sp1 … should i have to perform clean install or i can upgrade it from sp1 to sp2 ?and what version of sql i should have to use standard or express?

      5. i installed sccm in the past but my server crashed . now i am installing it again but active directory is Same.does it make any conflict with my Active directory? i have changed with site code any other suggestion ?

      6. You don’t need to run the schema extension but you will need to delegate rights to the new site server computer object in System Mansgement

  15. Hello Paul,

    I have a question regarding the AD container object. If I need to create a new SCCM environment in the same domain, do I need to create a new container object for it ?

    1. Each remote location will need to be assessed for requirements. This is not something that can answered here. You could take a look at branch cache options also or ACP’s like Nomad/OneSite

  16. Hi
    I am trying to reconfigure system center to work with remote sql server .. I opened the ports (tcp 4022, tcp 1433, udp 1434, tcp 445, tcp 135, tcp 139, tcp 5003 and tcp 5008) but I get this error ERROR: Site server does not have admin rights on remote sql server machine. Both computers work in our domain .. When I check the domain security log for audit failures I see this
    An operation was attempted on a privileged object.

    Subject:

    It seems that the system center works with local service .. how can we change it to work with domain account ?

  17. Do you have any guideline or best practice in setting up a separate SCCM Primary Site (ex. DEF) isolating from the existing SCCM Site (ex.ABC). Will adding a new SCCM Primary Site Primary Site to the existing System Management Container in ADSI caused any issue with the existing environment?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    1. Nope you can do this without issue. The main thing to remember is not to have boundaries set for automatic site assignment in your sites and therefore to install the client using the SMSSITECODE= parameter and not use auto

  18. Hello , i want to do fresh SCCM implementation for 1000 clients, as i will have only 1 primary site server & 4 distribution point so is it enough for 1000 clients..?
    How many license are required for 1000 clients..
    SQL needs different physical server or we can install it on same sccm server..?
    i wanted to know the whole installation procedure of primary site server, DP, sql installation etc..

    Thanks

  19. Hello, I am a computer technician. I have a data disk saturation problem on the SCCM server, where I could purge log files or other files to save space on my disk?

  20. Can i know, What the difference that event generated from SCCMDB and logs files.
    Is there any difference.?

    Any alternative method to download the files? I have tried running %Directory%\BIN\X64\setupdl.exe”, and have tried using SCCM 2012 R2 Prerequisites Downloader: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/SCCM-2012-Prerequisites-1ce58746

    And also tried ConfigMgr Prerequisites Tool 3.0.5: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ConfigMgr-2012-R2-e52919cd, but none helped. Can you assist me with this if you have encountered the same issue?

    1. I’ve not had this issue Nadir. You can run the pre-reqs on any device so may copy off to another machine with Internet access and try again. You can then copy the files into the folder.
