For this post I just wanted to note down my thoughts and plan that I recently used to migrate a client from Active Directory 2008 R2 to Active Directory 2016. For this work the servers involved were four Windows 2008 R2 servers which all ran AD, DNS, DHCP and NPS. These roles were being migrated to four Windows 2016 servers. The servers are spread out geographically and are on different networks but are all part of a single AD domain. All of the servers are Global Catalog servers. This is not designed to be low-level guide with all the intricate details but more of an overview (with some useful commands thrown in).
After migrating a client to Office 365 I needed a way of sending email from various applications and devices. I wanted an open relay for email though an onsite Windows Server to Office 365.
In the this post we will be setting up your SCCM 2016 Site System roles. So what is a site system role and why do we need it? A site system role is added to extend the management functionality of the site. So basically if you want to be able to manage a particular type of object within SCCM 2016 we need to install a site system role for it.
Now that we have covered all the prerequisites in the previous post we can now start the SCCM 2016 installation.
