SCCM 2016 on Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2016.

The deployment guide provides an excellent walkthrough of installing SCCM 2016 on the same server as SQL Server.

The installation of SCCM 2016 is primarily divided into two sections:

  • Prerequisite installation
  • System Center Configuration Manager Installation

Before installing SCCM 2016 on the server 2016 you have to set up a few prerequisites on the server

The prerequisites that you would be setting up are:

  • Create System Management Container in the Domain Controller System
  • Extend Active Directory Scheme
  • Run Prerequisite PowerShell
  • Install Windows ADK 10
  • Install Windows Server Update Service Role

Create System Management Container in the Domain Controller System

Set the System Management Container in the AD Server. To do that, open the Server Manager and from tools select ADSI Edit.

Right-click on ADSI Edit option in the below window and select Connect to.
This will open up the Connection Settings window. Click OK.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW2.png

Right-click the Domain Controller name and select New->Object.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW3.png

Specify the values as “System Management”.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW4.png

This will create the object in the AD. Now we have to assign object permissions to this container. Right-click the newly created container object and select properties.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW5.png

Add the SCCM_Admin Account of SCCM Server and the SCCM Computer (SCCM2016) to this container object.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW6.png

From advanced settings, change the permission entry from “This object” to “This object and all descendant objects”.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW7.png

Now both SCCM_Admin Account and SCCM2016 has been granted Full Control to the Container Object.

Extend Active Directory Schema

After downloading SCCM 2016 Setup Files and unzipped to a drive folder

Go inside the extracted folder to the path C:\ SC_Configmgr_SCEP_TechPreview1806 \SMSSETUP\BIN\X64.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW9.png

 From there, run the application extadsch.

It will run the command line tool to extend the active directory schema. You can find the output file in the C Drive.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW12.png

Opening it, we can see the success status of the operation.

Install site server prerequisites.

On SCCM 2016 server, Run PowerShell Script to Install all required Roles and Features

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW17.png

Install Windows ADK 10

Download and install Windows ADK 10. SCCM will check if USMT, Windows PE, and Deployment tools are installed.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW18.png

 Specify the install location and continue.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW19.png

Check the required features that have to be installed. I already have set up SQL Server 2016 on the server, so let’s uncheck the last option and install.

 101718_1243_SCCM2016onW20.png

Install Windows Server Update Service

Now, let’s add the last Role to the SCCM Server. It is the Windows Server Update Service Role.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW22.png

Specify the folder location where the updates will be stored

Select “SQL Server Connectivity” instead of WID Windows Internal Database.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW23.png

Next, you must enter a location to store the WSUS Updates and the NETBIOS name of your SQL Server. You are now ready to install SCCM.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW25.png

Click on Install to start the installation.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW26.png

Click Close.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW27.png

Install System Center Configuration Manager

From the downloaded installation files, start the installer

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW28.png

Click next

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW29.png

Select “Install a Configuration Manager primary site” option.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW30.png

 Accept the agreement and continue.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW31.png

If you have already downloaded the required installation files we can specify the location of the installation media.
Else we will have to download them to drive location first.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW32.png

Select Server Language

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW33.png

 Select Client Language

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW34.png

Specify the site code and site name and proceed.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW35.png

Now we have to specify the Full Qualified name of the SQL Server where the SCCM databases will be created.

Since we have chosen the SCCM to be installed on the same server as SQL Server, we don’t have to change the default value.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW36.png

Specify the location for the SQL Server data file and transaction log to be saved and proceed.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW37.png

Now we have to mention the location of the SMS provider which will be used to communicate with the site database.

Let’s install it on the same SQL Server.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW38.png

 Check HTTP communication option and proceed.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW39.png

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW40.png

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW41.png

Finally, we are in the setting summary page. Click on Next to start the installation.

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW42.png

This will start the prerequisite check. Ensure that there are no errors. We can skip the warnings after checking for the severity.

If there are errors we will have to resolve them before proceeding.

 101718_1243_SCCM2016onW43.png

Once we click Begin Install, it would take around 45 minutes to complete the installation of System Center Configuration Manager

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW43.png

101718_1243_SCCM2016onW46.png

Once the installation has run to completion we go ahead and run the Configuration Manager Console.
