Before launching the SCCM installation, we recommend launching the Prereqchk tool in order to verify if all components are configured correctly. The SCCM installation wizard will also run this check but if you’re missing a requirement, you’ll have to go through the whole installation wizard again after fixing it. We prefer to use the standalone tool before running the setup.
To start the prerequisite check tool :
- Open an Administrator command prompt
- Browse to .\SMSSETUP\BIN\X64
- Run the following command: Prereqchk.exe /AdminUI
If you follow the prerequisite guide correctly you’ll have this result :
Refer to this Technet article to see the list of all checks done by the tool.
If you have any warning or error refer to this Technet article in order to resolve it, or go thought part 1 and part 2 of this guide.

SCCM CURRENT BRANCH UPGRADE
The first task we like to do after a new SCCM installation is to upgrade it to the latest version. If you’re not familiar with this, Microsoft releases a Baseline version that you can install from scratch and then, you must upgrade to the latest version. We have a bunch of guides for each version. For reference, at the time of this blog post, the baseline is 1902 and the latest version is SCCM 1910. Just follow our latest upgrade guide and you’ll be at the latest available version.
SCCM CURRENT BRANCH CONFIGURATION
The next sections will be for configuring the various site server roles in your newly installed SCCM server. Role installation order is not important, you can install roles independently of others.
