  2. Properly shut down the site server computer.

  3. Change the hardware of the computer hosting the Configuration Manager site system components according to the hardware component documentation.

  4. After the hardware has been changed, restart the computer and verify that the site is operating normally after site services are reinstalled by site component manager.
