Install Guide – SCCM 2012 SP1 + Server 2012 + SQL 2012 (CU 3)

I don't want to write the whole procedure because it has been done many times by other people. I only want to point out some issues I have encountered in setting up the environment.

I followed this great procedure from Rob Marshall, so credits for writing the guide goes to that guy ;)

Issue 1:
When installing your DC, never choose 2012 ad the domain/forest level, since the System Center products will not recognise that level, and so you will have an error when you run the prerequisite checker.

Issue 2:
After I had extended the AD Schema, and configured the "System Management" object in AD, I still had the error in the prerequisite checker that my domain level was not at the correct level + AD was not extended. Well, turns out you need to be logged in as domain admin when you run the prerequisite checker. I was logged in as local admin and that's why I wasted to many time searching for the answer :p

Issue 3:
Defining security rights on the "System Management" OU (right click - properties - security) is not enough. You need to use the delegate control, otherwise SCCM cannot populate the OU.

Issue 3:
At first, SCCM wasn't synchronizing with WSUS for software updates. Apparently, when you install and configure the software update point in SCCM, at a certain point you need to select the wsus ports. I chose default, but that will not work, since WSUS uses a custom port: 8530 for HTTP and port 8531 for HTTPS (SSL). So make sure you select the 2nd option: custom ports
