6. Upgrading a Primary Site

After completing the prerequisites outlined in the previous sections, you are ready to upgrade your primary site.

You should also verify client push installation is disabled on your site prior to the upgrade. This will allow you more control over the client upgrade process. 

Perform the following steps to upgrade your primary site:

1.
Launch an upgrade to Configuration Manager 2007 by choosing Install Configuration Manager 2007 from the splash screen of the installation media.

  • You can access the splash screen by double-clicking splash.hta from the installation CD or other location where you have the installation files available.

  • You can also run setup.exe directly from the SMSSETUP\bin\<processor architecture> directory on the installation media.

2.
After reviewing the important reminders on the Setup Wizard welcome screen shown in Figure 12, click Next.

3.
Setup will detect that you have an existing SMS or ConfigMgr primary site on your server and provide the available options to upgrade or remove the site, as displayed in the Available Setup Options screen in Figure 13. Make sure that Upgrade an existing Configuration Manager or SMS 2003 installation is selected and then click Next.

4.
Review the license terms in the Microsoft Software License Terms dialog box shown in Figure 14. Then select “I accept these license terms” if you wish to continue. You may also choose to print the license terms. Click Next to continue.

5.
You have the opportunity to participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program. This is an optional program to provide feedback to Microsoft, and your choice does not affect the upgrade process.

6.
After entering your selection, you will need to enter your 25-digit product key, generally found on the installation CD case or supplied as part of your volume license agreement.

7.
After you provide the product key, the wizard will prompt you to download the latest prerequisite updates. The download can take a considerable amount of time, so you may want to download the updates in advance. Make the appropriate selection in the dialog box shown in Figure 15, and choose Next to enter or browse to the updated prerequisite components location.

8.
Once you download the updated prerequisites or supply the path to the existing files, Setup runs a prerequisite check to verify your site meets all required prerequisites.

9.
When the prerequisite check completes successfully, click Begin Install to upgrade your site. This will take some time—the actual time depends largely on your installation settings and the size of the site database. Figure 16 shows the Setup Actions Status Monitoring screen, which provides a detailed view of the actions Setup is performing and the status of each action.

10.
If you have ITMU installed, Setup detects its presence and launches the ITMU Setup Wizard displayed in Figure 17. You can either complete the ITMU upgrade now, or cancel it and use the SMSITMU.MSI installer file located in the \SMSSETUP\SUMSCANTOOLS\<processor architecture> folder on the Configuration Manager installation media to upgrade the scan tools after completing your Configuration Manager upgrade. If you do not upgrade ITMU during the upgrade, it will be necessary to upgrade it later for it to work properly for SMS clients with ConfigMgr 2007.

If you choose to upgrade ITMU at this point, the ITMU upgrade process prompts you to download the latest security updates catalog from the Web or supply an alternate location for the catalog, as shown in Figure 18.

Once you complete this dialog box and click Next, Setup finishes the ITMU upgrade and displays the Setup Complete dialog box, shown in Figure 19.

The upgraded ITMU can deliver patches to SMS 2003 clients in your ConfigMgr site. As the message in the dialog box in Figure 9.19 indicates, you will need to ensure that your clients have Microsoft Installer (MSI) 3.1 or later if you use ITMU to deliver updates for Microsoft Office or other Windows Installer–based updates to those clients. To provide continuity of service, you should plan to deploy the appropriate MSI version to your clients before upgrading your site.

For Configuration Manager clients, you will need to install WSUS and complete the additional steps required for ConfigMgr software updates.

11.
After ITMU Setup completes, the focus returns to the Configuration Manager Setup Action Status Monitoring dialog box previously displayed in Figure 9.16. The Next button is enabled when all actions complete; at this time, all the actions should now show a green success indicator.

12.
Clicking Next brings up the completion dialog box shown in Figure 20. Click the View Log button to check for any errors and confirm the end of the log includes the message “Installation and configuration processes are done.”

13.
Confirm that the following services have started:

  • SMS_EXECUTIVE

  • SMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGER

  • SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP

  • SMS_SITE_VSS_WRITER

14.
Finally, you should open the Configuration Manager console and review the site system status and component status.
