Detailed Description

The Start-CMDistributionPointUpgrade cmdlet upgrades a shared distribution point to a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager distribution point.

When you migrate from a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 source hierarchy, you can upgrade a shared distribution point to make it a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager distribution point. You can upgrade distribution points at both primary sites and secondary sites. The upgrade process removes the distribution point from the Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy and makes it a site system server in the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager hierarchy. This process also copies the existing content that is on the distributing point to a new location on the distribution point computer. The upgrade process then modifies the copy of the content to create the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager single instance store for use with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager content deployment. Therefore, when you upgrade a distribution point, you do not have to redistribute migrated content that was hosted on the Configuration Manager 2007 distribution point.

Examples

Example 1: Upgrade a shared distribution point

The first command gets the distribution point object that has the ID 6617708D-0F98-4898-8D05-9E882C23DCB2, and stores the object in the $CIObj variable.

The second command upgrades the shared distribution point stored in $CIObj to the Configuration Manager site that has the site code CM1. The command specifies the import path for the PKI issued certificate that the distribution point uses, and specifies that the distribution point can pre-stage contents.


PS C:\> $CIObj = Get-CMDistributionPoint -DistributionPointGroupId "{6617708D-0F98-4898-8D05-9E882C23DCB2}"
PS C:\> Start-CMDistributionPointUpgrade -AllowPreStaging $True -CertificatePath "\\Contoso01\CM\Toolbox\BaseCert.txt" -SharedDistributionPoint $CIObj -SiteCode "CM1"
