    Moving from Win Server 2008 to 2012 and MDT 2010 to 2012 help?

    So we finally moved over to server 2012 and im in the process of install MDT 2010 on the new server. I was wondering if there is a way to copy over all the stuff i have on the MDT 2010. The 2012 server is on a new VM... is there a simple way to copy the applications task sequences and everything else ive worked so hard on?

    Its quite easy. We did it recently. Cant remember which guide I used but this one looks similar.

    Try this : The Lacie Tech Blog: Migrating MDT 2010 from one server to another server

    Mdt 2012 applies a local gpo pack which is new in 2012. However it may configure settings you leave as default. Which may cause problems.

    Installed SCCM '12 over the summer but haven't used MDT much, most of the functionality seems to be already there! Did you check your licensing before upgrading to Win '12? Our licensing lets us have plenty of 2008r2 machines but the '12 rules are much less!

    If you have a minint folder on the machine you are trying to deploy to it may try and contact the old server. Also re create your boot images and add to wds.
