ConfigMgr 1702: Adding a new Secondary Replica to an existing SQL AO AG

Hello everyone,

Our colleague Umair Kahn has a helpful post on his blog where he and Sean Mahoney walk through adding a new secondary replica node to an existing SQL Server Always On availability group for a primary site server.

This process involves several steps

  • Adding the new server as a secondary replica.
  • Stopping the Configuration Manager site.
  • Backing up and restoring the site database from the primary replica to the new secondary replica.
  • Configuring each secondary replica.

Umair and Sean call out the issues that are specific to primary site servers. You’ll find the complete text for Umair’s post here:
