I’ve had a few requests to document the installation of the latest release of ConfigMgr, so here it is.

I’ve recently posted an upgrade guide that will get you from ConfigMgr 2012 (SP1+) to the new version of ConfigMgr. You can view that post here and previously I have posted a Step by Step guide for ConfigMgr 2012 R2 here.

This post will guide you through the installation of a single primary site server with MP and DP roles installed as part of the install wizard and SQL installed locally.

Take a look at Microsoft’s Supported Configurations documentation on TechNet before embarking in any installation.

This guide assumes that no previous version of ConfigMgr is installed in the Active Directory domain it is being installed into.

Before installing ConfigMgr 1511 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

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 ConfigMgr 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.’

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.
