SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide

 

Download and own part 1 to 18 of the SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide in a single PDF file. Use our products page or use the download button below. This blog post won’t be updated, only the document will be.

 

Performing a SCCM 2012 R2 installation is not a walk in the park. The product itself can be complex for inexperienced administrators. There’s already tons of SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide available, written by experienced blogger and MVPs but I think that very few gives the whole picture from the start to the last component. Our goal is to bring it a bit further, explaining concepts and best practice rather than just guide the user through the installation process.

We was hesitant to post this SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide because SCCM VNext is coming pretty fast (Release date could be announced at Microsoft Ignite) but I finally decided to release it anyway. We still get consulting contract to install SCCM 2012 R2 so it’s definitely still relevant information.

The SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide blog post series will describe everything about the installation process, from the server prerequisites to the various site role installation and configurations.

If you’re not familiar with SCCM 2012 R2 Features, you can visit this Technet article which covers it all.

If you’re familiar with the 2007 version and plans to migrate, read the Technet article about What’s New in SCCM 2012.

I hope this SCCM 2012 R2 Installation Guide brings all the information you need and that you’ll appreciate administering it..

    Hello I have just purchased this guide, in this guide you fail to mention how to deploy sccm clients which in my view is a vital component in the installation of sccm. Can you let me know if you have a guide for doing this?

      Hi Phil,

      Very good point and it would be a pretty good post to follow… The thing is that we can’t recommend a “best” deployment methods as every environment is different and has their own particularities.

      I strongly suggest to read the Technet documentation which is well made : https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/gg712298.aspx

    Could I leave a request? I’ve been using the guides so far and am very impressed. Could System Center Dudes produce a guide using the USMT to refresh computers to W10?

      Hi Tony,

      It’s only said that you can’t resell them. 🙂

      You can use in your enterprise and also for personal use.

    Wish you had the install notes with HTTPS and not HTTP (Client Computer Communication Settings). HTTPS require a lot of pre configuration on the CA (Certificate Authority) before starting SCCM install. I still haven’t found a detailed install notes on the NET on how to configure SCCM from ground up with HTTPS.

    Yet this is a good install guide for any one interested with SCCM 2012.

    Look forward to new install notes on SCCM 2016 TP.
