Learn How to Restore or Recover SCCM Standalone Primary Server Configuration Manager ConfigMgr?
This is another video tutorial to demonstrate “How to restore or recover SCCM standalone primary server“. The prerequisite for this type of recovery (explained in the video and the table below).
Prerequisites – Restore or Recover SCCM Standalone Primary Server
Do we need to have the following to Restore or Recover SCCM Standalone Primary Server?
- SCCM full backup,
- FQDN – The server name should be the same as the existing server
- Drive Letters should be the same
- The installation path should be the same
- It should have the same patch level
- Better to have the same IP (to avoid opening new Firewall rules)
If you have a question about “How to take the full backup of SCCM CB server” then it is already explained in the previous post here.
So I’m not going to cover that topic in this post or video. Also, SCCM CB primary server migration to new hardware is already covered in the post here.
In this scenario, I will use SCCM CB full backup to restore or recover the Site Database server.
SCCM Site Server and Site Database Recovery options I selected during the recovery process are very important. In this scenario, I opted to reinstall the site server part of SCCM CB site server recovery, and I opted for the “Recover DB using SCCM full backup” option to recover the site server database.
Another question I get as part of the SCCM CB hybrid (with Intune integration) is:- Do we need to re-enroll the mobile devices once the SCCM CB server is restored/Recovered? The answer is there in the video 🙂
