Hi every one , SCCM is actually one of my favorite Microsoft products and I find it very helpful in administrating and managing the environment ,so during this series I will be demonstrating different areas of SCCM 2012 R2 installation , configuration , Software Deployments, OSD …
We are going to install primary site , Secondary site and Branch. now we will start with our primary site server
To extend the Active Directory Schema using extadsh.exe utility, locate the extadsh.exe which can be found in \SMSSETUP\BIN\X64 of the configuration manager setup DVD. Run the extadsh.exe with a schema admin account.
To verify whether schema extension was successful, open the log file extadsch.log located in the root of the system drive. You should see the line “Successfully extended the Active Directory Schema”.
You can grant the Primary site servers computer account Full Control permission to the System container in Active Directory Domain Services, which results in the site server automatically creating the System Management container when site information is first published to Active Directory Domain Services. However, it is more secure to Connect to a domain controller and load ADSI Edit. Under the System OU create a new Object.
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’
The following roles and features need to be installed onto the SCCM Site Server prior to installation:
Common HTTP Features
Health and Diagnostics
IP and Domain Restrictions
Static Content Compression
IIS Management Console
IIS Management Scripts and Tools
IIS 6 Management Compatibility
IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
IIS 6 Scripting Tools
IIS 6 Management Console
The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) is a collection of tools that you can use to customize, assess, and deploy Windows operating systems to new computers.
We will install SQL locally because this requires less administrative overhead, and with local SQL you can achieve better performance than remote. if you are going to install Using Centralized SQL Check this great Post Here .
We are going to Install SQL Server 2012 with Service Pack 1 [no cumulative update required]
During the installation of Configuration Manager 2012 R2, the configuration manager checks if the SQL server memory limit is limited. If the memory is not limited, then a warning is displayed. To avoid that lets limit our server with a memory limit. Launch the SQL Server Management Studio. Login to the server and right click the Server and click on Properties. Click on Memory, set Minimum server memory value to 10240 MB and set Maximum server memory as 20480 MB. Click on OK and close the SQL management studio.
Choose WSUS Services and Database as these are the ones that are actually required. We will not select WID Database here. Click on Next.
On Database Instance Selection we will select the locally installed SQL to store the WSUS database. Click on Check connection and you must see the message successfully connected to server, Click on Next.
Click I accept the license terms and click on Next.
now we have our primary site server installed …see you in the next post.
