Updated: June 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

The Migrating Hierarchies in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager guide provides documentation to help you migrate hierarchies within your Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager environment. You can migrate the following hierarchies:

  • With System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, you can migrate an existing Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 infrastructure to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

  • With System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, you can migrate an existing Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 infrastructure or an existing System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 infrastructure to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1.

  • With System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, you can migrate an existing Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 infrastructure or an existing System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager infrastructure to System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

However, before you migrate any data, you must first install and configure the appropriate destination hierarchy. The destination hierarchy is the hierarchy where the data is migrated to. Read the Site Administration for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager guide and What’s New in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager before you read this guide.
