Points to Note about Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 Supported Configurations

Here’s something I thought was interesting to me while I was reading the supported configurations for ConfigMgr SP1

Supported:

  • Clients are supported on both Server Core installations of Windows Server 2008 and full installations of Windows Server 2008; however, desired configuration management and out-of-band management work only on a full installation of Windows Server 2008
  • Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 support for x64 and Itanium-based systems is through 32-bit code running on 64-bit operating systems
  • Hosting the site database on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard and Enterprise editions is supported
  • It is supported for a client to be moved from a workgroup to a domain or from a domain to a workgroup
  • Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 supports all site server roles running as virtual machines only on Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 and Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1

  • Upgrading the operating system on the site server from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 is not supported. If you want to run your Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 site on a Windows Server 2008 operating system, you must use a new installation of Configuration Manager 2007 SP1

  • Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 cannot manage more than one operating system on a single computer. If there is more than one operating system on a computer that must be managed, tailor the discovery and installation methods used to ensure that the Configuration Manager client is installed only on the operating system that needs to be managed

Others:
